The Awesome Dragon Ball Meme Lives On

Last week, we posted on the awesome Dragon Ball meme that showed Japanese schoolgirls performing superhuman energy attacks that sent their peers flying. (Our post alone was retweeted almost 2,000 times and liked over 17,000 times on Facebook.) While many of you have now moved on to the new “Vadering” photo meme, we felt compelled to take a moment and highlight a few Dragon Ball photos that recently came across our desk.

Judi Cutrone from The VIA Agency, based in Portland, Maine, just sent us the photo above. The subject line in her email: “More of a thank you.”

She wrote, “You posted this awesome story, and it was enough to convince my bosses that we should make our own.

“So much fun. LOVE your site. That is all.”

This other hilarious photo features Carl Kasell, newscaster on NPR and official judge and scorekeeper of their weekly quiz show Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! showing off his own magical move. As NPR’s website states, “With the help of a few NPR staff members, Kasell revealed that he has amassed more power in his 79 years than most could have imagined. Happy 79th birthday, Carl – you continue to blow us away with each passing year!”

We love how serious these gentlemen look. Keep ’em coming.

Meticulous Landscape Paintings Beautifully Represent Intangible Emotional States

Artist Crystal Liu intimately ties her emotional states to beautiful abstract paintings. In large-scale works, she constructs landscapes that are metaphors for the intangible forces that drive us. Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
