  1. Things We Saw Today: Mirror Art Takes Selfies to a New Level by Way of Doodled Warp Zone

    It's-a Mirrorsme!

    Ah, the bathroom mirror selfie. We meet again. This time, though, Mirrorsme has taken the much reviled method of self portrait and actually made it pretty awesome by drawing herself into scenes from games, movies, and other fun locations. Avoid all the "Mirror Selfie as Art" think pieces and just look at her awesome doodles.

  2. Webheads, Check out Reports From the Dan Slott Comic-Con Panel Moderated by Our Own Jill Pantozzi

    Is your spider-sense tingling?

    Our own Jill Pantozzi moderated the spotlight panel on The Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott, where they talked about all the important topics, like what Slott always wanted to be when he grew up—which most of us would probably like to be, too—and the difficulty of getting fart jokes into Ren and Stimpy.

  3. The ’80s My Little Pony Slow Jam Is Magic

    No more Saturday Morning Slow Jams? What does the future hold?

    Saturday Morning Slow Jams has brought us a lot of our favorite old-school cartoon themes reimagined in R&B, and they finished the album strong with the theme song from the original My Little Pony cartoon and some bonus pony rhymes. You can listen to the whole album now or buy it on iTunes so you can hear soulful renditions of your childhood wherever you go.

  4. Teens React to Goat Simulator to Kick off New React YouTube Channel

    You've got to be kidding me! (Sorry. Had to.)

    The Fine Brothers' "React" videos are pretty generally adorable across whichever age group they choose, so they've started an entire YouTube React channel as a way to bring us even more hilarious reactions—five per week in addition to the ones on their regular channel. Their first episode on the series' new home has teens react to the incomprehensible Goat Simulator, and some of them don't understand the draw of a game about being a goat.

  5. OKCupid Says They Experiment on Users Like Facebook, Defends the Practice

    "Facebook likes this."

    Right now, advertisers are using data of what you do and don't click to better target their campaigns, the sites you're on are using metrics to figure out how to best get your interest and hold it, and OKCupid is experimenting on its users. How do we know? Because they just said so, and they're going to keep doing it, because that's how the Internet works.

  6. Deadpool Animation Is Maybe Leaked Deadpool Movie Test Footage, Is Definitely Awesome

    Take note of the white lenses, Batman movies.

    Superhero movies, comics, TV, and pretty much just all kinds of media are better with a sense of humor. The worst part about Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy was the glaring omission of Peter's wit. This alleged Deadpool test footage is just further evidence of that fact, because it's only a few minutes long with some pretty standard action set pieces, but the personality will make you wish this were a real movie you could go see.

  7. The James Webb Space Telescope Sun Shield Will Help Us Search for Aliens, Looks Like a Star Destroyer

    I find your lack of intelligent life disturbing.

    Were you confused over the weekend as to why every NASA Twitter account and any account even closely related or interested was tweeting a picture of a really shiny, upside down Star Destroyer? (You follow everyone involved in the space program on Twitter too, right?) Wonder no more! It's the solar shield for Hubble's successor, the James Webb Space Telescope, and it'll help us find alien life on planets far, far away.

  8. The New The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Trailer Finally Brings Footage From the Movie

    Where can we get the blueprints for that Mockingjay crop circle?

    The in-universe teasers were nice, but this one is pretty great, too. Real footage. Philip Seymour Hoffman. Oh, and, you know, Katniss on the screen again. Feast your eyeballs on it—we won't even make you fight to the death over who gets to watch.
