Friday’s Fun tidbit

by Lisa on October 16, 2009

For last week’s learning tidbit, I decided to do a post on existentialism. I thought I would do a follow-up to that, but since it is Friday, on a much more lighter note. You probably haven’t heard of the name Dan Walsh, but he’s creatively re-done the much loved Garfield comic strips by Jim Davis. His site Garfield Minus Garfield has been given kudos by Jim Davis himself. As you can guess from the title, Garfield is taken out of every comic strip and what we have left is a lonely, confused Jon Arbuckle suffering through extreme moments of existentialism and at times what appears to be schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. A very new twist on the comic, indeed.

Take a look here Garfield Minus Garfield.

Want something else to amuse you? The Discovery Channel is great. Somehow it makes learning fun and educational. Every Wednesday, they have a series known as Time Warp. The basic premise is turning everyday normal activities into  something interesting and beautiful using advanced photography and digital imaging. For example, a water balloon to the face — in slow motion. Go ahead and watch the video below, there’s something hypnotic about it.

It was good, right? I didn’t know I would be so entranced by it either.  I hope you all enjoyed!

What a twist on a well known comic. Weirdly entertaining.
