Things We Saw Today: The Superhero Formerly Known as Batgirl


Prince‘s Purple Rain album cover with less Prince, more Batgirl. By Cliff Chiang, via ScreenRant.

Mary, Cora, and Violet have a hot dog eating contest in the latest installment of Iris Ophelia‘s Downton Abbey Meets The Sims 3. Don’t you want to know who wins?

Today is International Women’s Day; here’s the doodle Google unveiled for the occasion.

  • Disney XD has set premiere dates for two shows in its Marvel Universe block: Marvel’s Avengers Assemble on Sunday, July 7th, and Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. (featuring the voices of Eliza Dushku and Seth Green!) on Sunday, August 11th. (The Hollywood Reporter)
  • Joss Whedon‘s favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes are “Once More, With Feeling” (a.k.a. the fun, happy, musical episode, albeit with some angst) and “The Body” (a.k.a. the one where Buffy’s mom dies, just rip my heart out why don’t you?). That sounds about right. (Digital Spy)

Yup. (Shortpacked, via Nerd Approved)

    Cliff Chiang is one of the best out there. You should check out the other album art remixes he’s done if you haven’t already:http://www.cliffchiang.com/12-inch-remix/

    To top off the B&theB, ALL the peasants in the town just down the road forgot about this prince and his palace full of people in less than a decade.

    Aw, but they’ve forgotten the part that it was winter, and the rose was what the beggar woman offered as payment for shelter from the bitter cold. Turning her away would have been as good as killing her. King Wenceslas would have made a fire of pine logs and served her meat and wine. Where were the young prince’s parents, anyway?

    OMG. I loved those! Storm as Janet Jackson is totally my favourite!

    There had to have been some funky time bubble going on, because wouldn’t some of the family members of the servants realize they hadn’t heard from them in a while?

    Nah, they’re just servants. It’s not like they’re real people.

    Sadly, even if the prince had not been cursed, Gaston would have still been an utter tool.

  • Carmen Sandiego

    Those are my favorite two Buffy episodes as well.
