What is a weekend?

It’s Never Too Early to Start the Weekend With Disney-Inspired Cocktails

Yes, Thursday morning before 11am is the perfect time to bring up some potent potables based on children’s movies, I can’t imagine who would object to this. After all, you need some time to go to the liquor store and buy all those weird ingredients before Friday night.

We’ve featured the creations of Cody the mixologist before, and his newest batch of Disney inspired drinks are as lovely to look at as they sound delicous to drink. And some of them are just out right impressive: the dots in this Cruella de Vil inspired cocktail are chocolate chips that have been stuck to the inside of the glass.

Artist Makes Your Childhood Icons Twisted and Nightmare-Inducing

Or not, in some cases. We know from Sylvain Sarrailh‘s previous set of illustrations that, while he’s good at reimagining childhood favorites in such a way as to make them completely terrifying (Ariel), a lot of his illustrations are just… pretty damned awesome, full-stop. To wit: His take on The Legend of Zelda. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but it’s the first one behind the cut, and you definitely want to see it.

These Lion King Bloopers Will Warm Even The Coldest Of Hearts

Truth be told, it probably takes hours upon hours to record the script for a 2 hour animated film. Ever wonder what happens between takes that make the final cut? Here’s a video of Lion King bloopers that were recorded and later animated for our enjoyment — in other words, here is possibly the best thing you’ll see on the Internet today. You can thank me later.

The Dark Knight Rises Trailer Reenacted By Hot Dogs. You Heard Us. Hot Dogs.

We here at The Mary Sue are huge fans of the fan trailers that have come out of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. Sure, there are a lot of talented people out there who’ve edited together bits from all three films to create super-trailers but what we really love are the ones where individuals recreate the trailer using something else. For instance, there was a LEGO, stop-motion version of the trailer and not one but two mash-ups with Batman: The Animated Series. Oh, and let’s not forget the epic Lion King mash-up. But here is something I’ve never seen before and never in my life expected to see. It’s the TDKR trailer reenacted by ground up meat in casings. Yes, hot dogs. And it was created by a group called Sausage Party. Then again, I never thought I’d see a hot dog eating Batman either, but that happened. Enjoy Commissioner Gordon’s mustache, Catwoman’s hair, and about twenty other awesome moments.
