I SAID THESE ARE NOT THE DROIDS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!

Cartoon Hipster Meme

One of the latest memes on the internet is putting glasses on someone/something and then complaining about being mainstream. It's the hipster stereotype of knowing about something before it was cool. The meme comes to childhood cartoon icons at Hell Yes Hipster Disney.

Interlocked
This game is awesome! You have two modes: look/rotate, and grab. You use the spacebar to toggle between the modes (or "tools"), and the object is to disassemble the interlocked pieces until none remain. It's called, not surprisingly, Interlocked.

The Great Gatsby Game
If you read the "About" page, the dude says he found this old Nintendo Entertainment System game at a garage sale. But if you read the Contact page, you see he actually wrote it. It's a classic Nintendo-style platformer, and yes, weird as it is, it's The Great Gatsby Game.

I didn't realize Twiggy was ever a bunny at the Playboy club.

Posing Book Covers

While used to help sell books visually, book covers can inadvertantly be used for other things. And that's what this web site is all about. Since so many book covers have portions of people on them, why not get someone to fill in the rest of the picture. Admire the creativity, and maybe even get in on the action, at Corpus Libris.

Island Survival
It seems simple enough: using just the arrow keys, move your little guy around the rapidly-deconstructed island and survive for the allotted time period. Do you have what it takes to stay alive in Island Survival?

Getting Civil with Soldiers

Here's another unique-subject site. Every few days, he shows you a picture of a Civil War soldier (mostly officers) and links to their wikipedia page for more information. It all begins at the lightheartedly-named Let's Get Jiggy with Civil War Dudes.

Julie Andrews was horrified when they found out her true identity.

The Same Age, Mentally

This site is a test. You're presented with a quote or description, and you have to decide (and, for fun, choose) whether it describes a Drunk or a Child. (So far, I'm about 50% correct.)

Space Cows from Outer Space
How about a nice turn-based MMO that runs in your browser? Sign up on the site, complete the tutorial game, and then run as many or as few games as you like against real live people on the intartubes. It all begins at Space Cows from Outer Space. (Note: It doesn't seem to have anything to do with cows, as far as I can tell.)
