Zombie Disney princesses


Tumblr's Zombie Disney Princess tag is a rich seam of transgressive, gruesome, wonderful (and thoroughly unauthorized) creativity (above: Leimanaang). The stylistic variation is what (metaphorically) kills me here -- who'd have thought that there were so many different ways to zombify the Disney princess pantheon, each one so clearly perfect and yet so different from all the others?

ARST ARSW (Star Wars, re-edited into alphabetical order)

Tom Murphy sorted the whole script of Star Wars alphabetically, located the timecode for each spoken word in the film (using the Han Shot first print), and edited the film into alphabetical order. I don't know about you, but I think Kenobi #8 was definitely the best.

Fun facts:
* The word "lightsaber" only appears once in this film.
* There are 43m5s of spoken English, 81m39s of other.
* The most common word is "the", of course, said 368 times.
* The word with most screen time is "you", at 52.56 seconds.
* There are 1695 different words, and 11684 total words.
* The longest words are "responsibility," "malfunctioning", "worshipfulness", and "identification", all 14 letters.

I labeled the words manually (!) using some software I wrote specifically for the purpose.

This is the Special Edition to troll Han-shot-first purists. Everyone knows the orig is the most legit.

Princess Leia as a Haunted Mansion stretch-portrait


Deviantart's Khallion (who has quite a line in Princess Leia remixes) has posted this Haunted Mansion stretch-gallery/Star Wars mashup that seems to have dropped in from an alternate universe in which the Mansion gets a Star Wars skin. Not that I'd want such a thing to be an annual event, but one special May the 4th event would be something fine indeed.
