Friday roundup

Trying something new on the blog – a roundup of some of the funky stuff I’ve found during the week, either mooching about online or via Twitter/Facebook.

NYC artist Jon Burgerman uses movie subway posters to highlight violence & gore. Interesting idea. (HT to @Jamie_McHale for the tweet)

On the subject of movies, here are 100 famous movie quotes as charts.

And finally a timelapse video of a cruise ship being cut in half and extended. (via
