I love artist Hugh Murphy’s highly amusing Tumblr, T-Rex Trying, in which the most infamous of dinosaurs is depicted attempting to do every day things such as stowing his hand luggage into the overhead locker, trying to make a move while watching a movie and trying to be a matador. It’s simple, silly and sweet, all at the same time.
Charlie the Unicorn is a Flash animated short film and viral video directed, produced, animated, and written by Jason Steele of independent film company FilmCow. The film follows the life of Charlie, a lethargic unicorn, and two other unicorns who bring him on an allegedly magical adventure to the mythical “Candy Mountain”.
The video was a viral hit, accumulating 50 million views and gaining worldwide praise. A merchandising line was later produced featuring the video’s characters and famed quotations, as well as two sequels, Charlie the Unicorn 2 and Charlie the Unicorn 3, released in 2008 and 2009, respectively, and a parody series titled Charlie teh Unicron, created by Steele in 2010. All three videos in the series were released to DVD in 2009 under the title The FilmCow Master Collection.
What is the door?

Charlie! Look up to the blablablas

The Dinosaur Office is a clay-animation video series starring dinosaurs in familiar, everyday office situations. It was created by writers Kevin Corrigan, Caldwell Tanner and Brian Murphy at collegehumor.com in New York. Of course, unlike human workplaces, at Dinosaur Office all gossiping is done in booming dinosaur voices and fights-to-the-death occasionally break out at office parties.
Nicholas Hendrickx, a recreational macro photographer and general creativist from Belgium, takes one dead fly where no dead fly has ever been. With a little bit of photo equipment (a Canon EOS 350D plus various accessories) and a whole lot of patience, Nic has created The Adventures of Mr. Fly, an astonishing photoessay of miniature brilliance.
From Mr. Fly’s wonderfully retro portrait, to his laid-back chill-out moment, to our personal favorite, his stint as a professional bum, the project is a testament to the power of a little bit of spare time and a seriously creative mind.
Nic also does other macro stuff, some of it just as fascinating and all of it just as unexpected.
I’ve fallen hard for the surrealism of Tumblr Animals Talking All In Caps. It features pictures of animals, from cats to tropically hued lizards, and they are talking ALL IN CAPS. The shouty creatures have remarkably human thoughts too.
I CAN SORT OF SEE WHAT YOU’RE GOING FOR, BUT THE MAIN PROBLEM HERE IS THAT YOU DON’T ACTUALLY HAVE … STYLE? GOOD CLOTHES? A MODICUM OF RESTRAINT? THINGS LIKE THAT.
RIGHT NOW YOU LOOK LIKE SOMEONE LET LIBERACE DESIGN A METER MAID UNIFORM FOR A DESERT ENVIRONMENT.
PLEASE DON’T SMILE. THAT’S NOT A COMPLIMENT.
THAT LOOKS QUITE PAINFUL. I’D SAY THERE’S A GOOD CHANCE IT’S BROKEN.
FAIL TO RESTORE YOUR ACCOUNT TO A POSITIVE BALANCE, MR. ANDREWS, AND YOU WILL INCUR FURTHER OVERDRAFTS.

If You Watch X Backwards, It’s About Y is a snowclone template often seen on online message boards, to change the narrative of a popular film using reverse chronology. It is used to highlight the hilarious or ridiculous aspects of the movie or comment on traditional cinematic and narrative conventions.
Years later, Redditor, posted a thread using the Jaws line as the topic. Several people in the comments began posting their own versions of the snowclone…
