Things We Saw Today: Brosie the Riveter Could Hang on Your Wall, Too

If you liked the story of how Brosie the Riveter came to be, you can now buy his poster (along with his distaff counterpart) from WeLoveFine. It’s up to you to decide which of your walls can actually handle him. He’s a bit too much for our front page, even, so I’ve, uh, cropped him.

Noelle Stevenson Illustrates Famous Fictional Couples from Buffy, Miyazaki, ’90s TV, And More

There’s a reason we love Noelle Stevenson (a.k.a. Gingerhaze) around here, and the reason is that she draws stuff like this. And her mad skills at depicting ’90s hair and fashion.

Pixar Films: Secretly Including Messages About the Future of Humanity?

Kyle Munkittrick at Discover has an amazing essay on what Disney’s Pixar movies have taught us what it really means to be human — without being an actual human person. And not just that, but also what this means for how humans will react with other entities in the future, such as technology. The way Disney and Pixar have accomplished this is by creating entire worlds without humans as the main focus, or even present. As a result, we might be learning that it’s a bad idea to underestimate the intelligence of animals, robots, and even other humans.
