Mashup demigod djBC writes, "Pimpdaddysupreme (PDS Mix), myself and Jabulani (Bootie Boston) will be spinning the opening night rave at Dragon Con this year.

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?
