What's with the name?

gifs

Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

Shut. Down. Everything. There’s a Company That Prints Gifs.

Through the magic of lenticular printing—you know, those pictures with two separate images on them, and you switch back and forth by moving it around—Brooklyn-based startup gifpop is printing the pinnacle of human artistic achievement: The gif. Yes, you can upload your own, though the limit is ten frames. You can even choose two still images—like, for instance, happy Bilbo and Bilbo flipping everyone off. There has to be a catch, like you’re not allowed to use gifs from copyrighted material or something. The website doesn’t specify, but the universe cannot be good enough to allow me to have a physical copy of Nathan Fillion being judgey to carry around with me, close to my heart.

Anyway, Toro created GIFs of Batman’s Rogues and we’ve arranged them from the Tim Burton years through Christopher Nolan. I have just one question, are these villains walking toward Batman or away from him?

Oxford Dictionary Names “GIF” The American Word Of The Year – Here’s Some Now!

Well how do ya like them apples? The Oxford English Dictionary has chosen “GIF” as the American word of the year. England’s word of the year? Omnishambles: a situation that has been comprehensively mismanaged, characterized by a string of blunders and miscalculations. I think we win. GIF, or graphics interchange format, may not be one of our favorite words but it’s certainly one of our favorite things to use when there’s nothing else to say and definitely one of our favorite things to reblog on tumblr. Without further ado, we present some of our favorite GIFs from around the web. And let me tell you, it was tough narrowing them down.
