Feels kinda pointless since I don't actually do stuff at Gaia, so I'm putting it here.

Well, I'll be.

Not having seen all the creation videos, my comments: Homer is (perhaps ironically) the best-looking of them. Monkey ears and jaundiced skin aside, he looks like a real person. As for Marge and the kids... ugggh. Maggie looks like she's about twenty-seven.

Still, cool stuff. I'll probably return with more observations.

This is the end;
I'm a good fighter
But a bad friend;
I've played the traitor
Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.

Viewing these creations has lowered my overall quality of life.

Remember, kids, say no to drugs.

I highly recommend the Homer & Marge video to anyone who isn't laughing/under the desk yet. Especially the bit when Marge starts to smile.

Yarrrhhh...That's gonna replace the whale in my nightmares!

Actually, the whale was replaced by the "Eye Man" from "Pan's Labarynth."  Nonetheless, we have a new winner...

I felt Snowball 2 and Homer were kind of well done, but Bart, Lisa and Maggie... it's like thier eyes are piercing my soul *shudders*.

Right, well now I've had a day to get over the initial shock, I have to say you've got to give them credit for trying, but man, I wish they'd put a bit more thought into it...  I don't know why they went for those stretched mouths.  I can only think they looked at the long overbites and decided that OFF all have mouths like Cherie Blair.  Trouble is, in OFF, the mouths usually look quite narrow head on.  What they've ended up with looks eerily reminiscent of Jack Nicholson as The Joker...
With Lisa, they started with a bit of a false premise because if the ep mentioned is the one I'm thinking of, she actually gets mistaken for a college student because she's hanging around with a bunch of gymnasts who look a lot younger then they actually are.  Both "Lisa" and "Bart" would be particularly terrifying, but they're completely overshadowed by the horror that is "Maggie"....
Snowball II does work quite well though!
There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning....
And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave....
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

Ze goggles do nothing! *twitch-twitch-shudder*
Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old,
Can you hear me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles,
With itching feet and fading smiles,
Can you feel me?
Hey You! Don\'t help them to bury the light.
Don\'t give in without a fight.
