Weekly Website Wednesday: Maria Lombide Ezpeleta

I was digging around in my thousands of bookmarks, when I rediscovered the website for this week.

I was digging around the internet for more information about Middle Earth, when I found a gallery of a bunch of Tolkien fanart. Maria’s art stuck out to me, because it was so different from everybody else’s. I find her use of colour and exaggerated anatomy very striking.

Warning: some of her art contains naked people, if that’s the kind of thing that bugs you for some reason.

Weekly Website Wednesday: Fashion It So

This week’s website is another Star Trek website, because I can never, ever stop talking about Star Trek on account of my congenital nerd defect.

fashion it so link picture Fashion It So is a website that analyses the crazy clothing, makeup, hairstyles and accessories of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Ever noticed how teeny-tiny Captain Picard’s shorts are? You’re not the only one.

Why is there so much underboob in the future?

Why did the skant uniform have to disappear? It was totally awesome!

Anyway, go check out Fashion It So, because the fashion of the future is important and junk.

Weekly Website Wednesday: Scorpion Dagger

This week’s website is a a tumblr. Boo. Hiss. SJW bogeyman grrrrrr…

scorpion dagger link picture Scorpion Dagger, or James Kerr, uses Renaissance paintings, mostly of a religious nature, to make wacky, irreverent animated GIFs. If you ever wanted to see Jesus and the apostles getting turnt, he’s your man. Most of his GIFs loop pretty well, too, which is always the Holy Grail of GIFs. Some of the GIFs even feature the Holy Grail.

It’s pronounced with a hard G, by the way, and don’t you ever forget it.

Weekly Website Wednesday: Eric Conveys An Emotion

This week’s website is a website that hasn’t updated in 7 years, BUT I DON’T CARE!

eric conveys an emotion link picture Eric Conveys An Emotion was one of the earliest internet viral sensations. All it is is pictures of Eric’s face depicting different emotions. Yes, it’s true, Eric invented the selfie, but he had no idea what evil he would be unleashing on the world. I blame Eric for the Kardashians, in fact.

Remember the days when websites having images was a new and exciting thing? That’s what was so great about Eric Conveys An Emotion, it had images. We used to be very easily entertained. Get off my lawn ADD Generation or whatever the Hell we’re supposed to call you kids born with a smartphone in your hands.

If I keep mentioning Eric Conveys An Emotion, that means he’ll update, right? RIGHT?

Weekly Website Wednesday: General Grin

Do YouTube channels count as websites? Whatever. I’m featuring a YouTube channel as this week’s Weekly Website. Or, multiple channels, actually. Whatever.

general grin link picture General Grin does very funny edits of Star Trek. In them, Captain Picard is not the patient, smart benevolent leader we’ve come to know and love, but a sadistic, mass-murdering maniac. Unlike a lot of edits, General Grin’s TNG Recut series actually has a story and continuity between episodes, creating an wholly original series of its own.

Unfortunately, because General Grin uses copywritten content in his work, he needs to use multiple account to keep from being shut down. So, here are all his channels that I know of: Major Grin, Admiral Grin, TheGreatLink, Colonel Grin and Grin Reaper.
