From the mind of the talented MashTheFox… behold The Furries Avengers Squad Team! It’s a fun take on The Avengers, drawn furry-style. Nicely done! And I think these characters are tailored after real folks in his club. Fun stuff.
The Big Game is coming soon, and everyone in America will be watching. I’m referring, of course, to the annual Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. 🙂 Here are a couple fun clips of Conan O’Brien’s version of the Puppy Bowl. They dress up the little pups in wigs and costumes, it’s really cute. Conan’s smart… you can never go wrong with puppies.

Here’s an old 80s music video, perfect for Throwback Thursday. The song is Land of Hunger, by The Earons. Notice the motorcycle helmets, futuristic fashion, and synthesized music? Hmm, did Daft Punk “borrow” their act? The similarity is enough to make some folks wonder. Interesting!
Presidents Day isn’t too far away, and here’s a great tribute to our nation’s past leaders. High school student Chaz Rorick has been dressing up as a different president each day, and posting the photos to Instagram. He posed as every president! Truly amazing, what a funny idea. Follow the link to view the complete gallery.

A recent article in theguardian gives us a first look at the new Doctor Who costume. Worn by the new Doctor, no less, Peter Capaldi. A fancy outfit, indeed, earning the title of “the most formal Doctor for decades.” I like it, though my personal preference would include a scarf.
Described by Capaldi as “100% rebel Time Lord”, the costume sits somewhere between those of the previous two Doctors and a slightly flamboyant best man cutting shapes at a wedding reception. From top to bottom, Capaldi’s outfit comprises a white button-down shirt, a navy frock coat (with a dashing red lining, all the better for dazzling Daleks as he dramatically swishes away from them), matching waistcoat, formal trousers and shiny black leather boots.
