I have no mouth and I must photoshop

marcus132 had a fine idea for rasterbation.
(The movie's going to suck ass, though.)

    The first two are good, the others, meh. The last yells "Fark" to me.

    • jwz says:

      They took me about ten minutes total, including googling, so I guess now we know how much effort goes into your typical photoshop contest. I never read Fark or Worth100 or any of that perma-unfunny crap. Thank god for <lj user="bbfilter"> so I don't have to hear Cory spooging about them any more either.

        I'm still trying to get my dialedin.us/boing settings set right, but I seem to have most of the irritating Boing-isms weeded out.

        My own feed settings were meant to kill off self-reference ("Only $500 for Cory's new book!"), the word "zen" (using it to mean "absurd" only throws you up several notches on the honky-meter), as well as "mashup", "podcast", and "blog", and a few other don't-care-shut-up-shut-up-shut-up topics. I saw a list of annoying boingboing terms in the comments to an entry here once, and meant to make a feed link out of those, but seem to have been distracted by zombies or something.

        Of course, the dialedin feed-sifter thing has its flaws. For some reason my search completely removes ALL of Xeni's entries. I like to entertain the notion that she really IS a BoingBot, regurgitating old entries and Annalee Newitz articles through a markov grinder, and thus triggering a boingword filter in each post.

        If someone finds the reason for this, I'd love to know why it is. But I'd probably still leave it in just to enjoy the peace and quiet.

      #3 is fairly disturbing.

    • greyhame says:

      It's sort of disturbing how well the Cheney-sneer works, isn't it?

    The last one is genius. Seriously. Totally... I can't decide if its psuedo-Magritte (Ceci n'est pas une femme.) or what... mind if I make an icon of it?

  3. dojothemouse says:

    Is that Dick Cheney?

  4. greyhame says:

    Do you have an opinion on the games? I thought the trailer looked fairly true to them. Not, of course, that it isn't always possible for videogame movies to suck horribly despite all expectations.

    • jwz says:

      Never played them, hate RPGs. But there has never been a good movie based on a video game, and this one looks even more clichéd and derivative than most.

      • jcfiala says:

        Oh, I dunno. The first Mortal Kombat film is a great amount of fun, in a fantasy/kungfu remake of 'Enter the Dragon' sort of way. And I don't even play the MK games.

      • transiit says:

        But then, most cinematic video game adaptations aren't written by Roger "Pulp Fiction/Killing Zoe" Avary.

        I give it half a chance. Go watch the Super Mario Bros. movie first just to set your expectations low.

      • greyhame says:

        Well, that's a hard argument to refute, I admit (though I did think the first Mortal Kombat movie was fun, if not good) -- but this one isn't by Uwe Boll, so that's something.
        I think most people don't think of the Silent Hill games as RPGs, but I don't imagine that's a debate you're interested in having.

        • pfister_ says:

          Silent Hill is definitely not an RPG series. Maybe there's some known feature of the Silent Hill games that triggers Jamie's personal definition, but the typical Silent Hill game definitely does not include leveling, random encounters, or an infantile story line in which a spiky-haired hero saves the world from infinite evil whilst getting all the girls.

          • sheilagh says:

            the game that had the pointed-headed guy who was inifinite evil and got all the girls? (only to re-patch the girls into creepy parts-is-parts mutants?

      • lord_knusper says:

        personally I'm waiting for pac-man to be turned into a gory, cheesy horror flick involving hallucinations from XTC overdose.

  5. greyface says:

    The last one reminds me of Skulhedface.

    GO GWARlent Hill.

  6. jesus_x says:

    Has #7 been redacted, or is that a 404 in your pocket?

  7. webgodd_s says:

    Vagina face! lol!!

    Here's one in honor of Katie Holmes's upcoming Scientology silent birth.

    $10 says she screams like a stuck pig. :)

  9. georgedorn says:

    #2 is Dick Cheney, isn't it?

    It's wrong that I can tell that...

  10. krick says:

    Sick minds think alike, apparently.

  11. gytterberg says:

    I think #7 is creepy because it's slightly... slanted.

    If you unfocus your eyes and stare at it a moment she looks like an anime character with a "thoughtful" expression.

    p.s. thank you for the http://dialedin.us/boing/ link. That's both hilarious and awesome at the same time. Bye-bye "DRM," "Disney," "mashup," "Cory"...

    And #4 is upside-down, too.
