Not to Play Favorites, But Genderswapped “Bombshell Avengers” Was the Best Cosplay at WonderCon


Hey, I call it like I see it. But I’m also biased, because I really enjoy an old-fashioned clothing aesthetic, as opposed to other old-fashioned things like fewer rights for women and penicillin not having been invented. But I’m getting sidetracked. This cosplay group, photographed by Justin Davidson (more pics at the link), is amazing. I’m giving up on cosplay, because I don’t think I can improve on that Red Skull.

Classic Sci-Fi Movies Get the Vintage Movie Poster Treatment

Not only did Peter Stults and the late Sean Hartter illustrate sci-fi classics like Blade Runner, Superman, and The Fifth Element (and not-so-classics like Watchmen) in the style of vintage movie posters, they also recast them with classic Hollywood actors and actresses. That wheezing sound you hear is my classic movie fever acting up.

Update: It’s been brought to our attention that, though these were originally all attributed to Stults, some are by Sean Hartter. Also, several of Stults’ posters have been removed at the request of the artist.

What’s not better than a dog? A cat. Come at me, cat people! That includes you, Jill.

One more pic of this brilliance, by Flickr user Hiroko, is behind the jump. I won’t make a doge reference. I won’t do it!

Proof that Every Disney Movie Is Improved by the Presence of The Emperor’s New Groove Yzma

With her “Yzma is Best Princess” series, artist Charamath has reminded me that I really should rewatch The Emperor’s New Groove this weekend. There is no better way to spend 78 minutes of one’s life. Not sleeping, not lounging, not socializing. Certainly not doing anything productive. Why do we even have that lever?!

Guys, There’s a Paper That Describes the Relationship Between Lizzie Bennet and Mr. Darcy Using Math

“A mathematical model is proposed for interpreting the love story between Elizabeth and Darcy portrayed by Jane Austen in the popular novel Pride and Prejudice. The analysis shows that the story is characterized by a sudden explosion of sentimental involvements, revealed by the existence of a saddle-node bifurcation in the model. The paper is interesting not only because it deals for the first time with catastrophic bifurcations in romantic relation-ships, but also because it enriches the list of examples in which love stories are described through ordinary differential equations…. A series of small discoveries can give rise to a sudden turning-point in the development of a love story. In mathematical terms these turning-points are nothing but so-called catastrophes, which, in the case of Pride and Prejudice, are technically revealed by the existence of a saddle-node bifurcation.”Discover has a lingo-laced excerpt from the paper “A mathematical model of ‘pride and prejudice‘” (“as a consequence of the letter the upper saddle-node bifurcation curve is crossed from below and this crossing implies a discontinuous jump from x’ to x”’…”), plus a graph. A graph.

It’s so beautiful.
