The Morning GIF: This is your brain on drugs

The title on the Rainbow Hands Tumblr is “Spider Webs - No Doubt,” the title of a major 1995 hit from a major band, one that formed back in 1986 and is still performing and releasing albums. Yes, at least one ska band made it big.

The great thing about abstract art, however, is that titles may or may not relate to the actual visual content of the artwork in question.

So, on the one hand this may be a straightforward representation of layered spiderwebs. A straightforward representation of layered spiderwebs that has been rainbow-ified and animated in a psychedelic, throbbing tunnel of RGB-enhanced madness.

On the other hand, this may be your frontal cortex neurons this morning. Our condolences.

Oreo cookie celebrates gay pride, looks delicious

Oreo is celebrating LGBT pride with a photo of a giant cookie with a rainbow of six differently-colored levels of frosting. Was it bravery? Or did the company know that, Facebook commenters being Facebook commenters, it would cause a lot of bickering and get them a lot of attention?(cont.)

The Morning GIF: Goodbye, Ray Bradbury


On Wednesday, the world said goodbye to Ray Bradbury, one of the canonical science-fiction writers of the 20th century. If “something wicked this way comes” is part of your arsenal of expressions, you owe it as much to Bradbury as to Shakespeare, and it’s doubtful a single American graduated high school without reading (and rereading, for no extra credit!) Fahrenheit 451. Practical: As Tumblr user Brian Van points out, now you know how hot the oven can be before you really have to take the pizza out of the cardboard box.

Bradbury was a man preoccupied with achieving immortality through his work, and we think he can rest easy.

“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there.” —Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Bradbury was not only an inspirational and practical imaginer of new worlds, however brave. He was also politically active, although his alignment with the Tea Party might startle some of his often soft-left fandom. Nonetheless, he was a supporter of George W. Bush, and vice versa. President Bush presented Bradbury with the National Medal of Arts in 2004, a moment which is immortalized in our Morning GIF.

Alan Butler at the Not Safe for Mork Tumblr (whom we’ve covered before) has taken Bradbury and the First Couple out of their mundane (if posh) surroundings and put them in space, where they float eternally, trailing rainbows across the universe. The Bushes look pleased as can be, and as for Bradbury, he’s completely OG, sitting in that wheelchair like a throne and flashing his rings.

We’ll leave you with this quote from The Halloween Tree, one of Bradbury’s lesser-known works.

“When you reach the stars, boy, yes, and live there forever, all the fears will go, and Death himself will die.”

Mission accomplished.

The Morning GIF: He-Man meets “The Avengers”

A casual stroll through Tumblr is all it takes to see how much The Avengers fandom has come to dominate the GIF world lately.

But happens when the greatest superhero of ‘80s cartoons meets the hottest superheroes of 2012?

The result is sublime, confusing, bizarre, sexually ambiguous,  and hilarious.

This GIF is a takeoff of the classic SlackCircus video of He-Man and the 4 Non-Blondes hit “What’s Going On.” Instead of Prince Adam, it substitutes Thor from The Avengers, with a video-bombing cameo of his brother Loki.

This GIF was originally uploaded at the Brocreate Tumblr, and it has had 8536 notes so far. In another 30 years, who knows where we’ll be? By then GIFs may have soundtracks.
