WARNING: The following post is rated: Arrrrgh!

Shannon Ocean made Guybrush Threepwood from the Monkey Island series of video games. I've personally never played them, but I hear they're quite entertaining.

Nothing like some pixel-y goodness!

Oh...my...goodness!!

During Brincka LEGO Show in Tomar, Portugal, 1-3 July 2011, the members of PLUG organized this insanely epic and humongous mosaic.

Tomar Portugal LEGO Show 74

It reminds me of Rivendell (Lord of the Rings), although I'm not quite positive as to what it quite is. All I know, is...it's stinking awesome! By the way, This was found by Bruce on Lego Monster's flickr stream.

IT'S MAGIC!!!...Well, not really...

In the mosaic world, it's now all the rage to do "morphing mosaics" where when you're looking at a mosaic from one angle, it appears to be just a single image, but as you shift to another side, the image morphs into another image.

This effect was first done with Chris Doyle's Portrait of Dorian Bley using "cheese slopes" put next to each other. Looking at the image strait on will make it look really weird, so using this, you get some very cool transforming creations. Now, it's been copied and re-done all across the community and I only suspect it to gain more traction:
