No cats were harmed in the making of this tumblr and we certainly don’t encourage anyone to throw a cat ever, let alone on their wedding day. Still reading? Well one last time, seriously, this is fake.

Redditor Isaac_2 didn't just morph actors Hayden Christiansen (Young Anakin) and Sebastian Shaw (Elderly Anakin/Vader), but carefully photomanipulated the result for anatomical credibility and Star Warsyness. Some people see David Bowie; others see a more athletic George Lucas. See the working process at the Star Wars subreddit. Read the rest

Jim Munroe writes, "We've put our science fiction visions of Toronto's future together in a 2015 calendar called FALLEN TORONTO as a new Kickstarter reward for backing our neo-noir sci-fi webseries HAPHEAD. If you live here you can shiver in nameless dread all the year round, and if you live elsewhere you can revel in schadenfreude at the fall of our socialist den of iniquity." Read the rest
