For the bored and random
Keke. Totally just for kicks and giggles…
Today’s useless but amusing toy of the day comes via Pop Candy, which, if you’re unaware, is a fantastic blog on American/Western pop culture. Not the Perez Hilton-y, slagging-on-poptarts (or as they say, “celebutard”) kind of pop culture, but a witty, smart, ironic kind that skews a little Gen X and geek-chic, but is infinitely more readable and satisfying. If you’re into that kind of thing, that is.
Anyway. Wonder what you’d look like as an anime character? Try running a photo through the Face Transformer tool here. I tried it on myself, and the anime/manga setting is by far the most flattering. The “mucha” option yields decent results, but inevitably the Modigliani option brings out the chinkiness in all of us using the “East Asian” setting, and the Botticelli tends to make you look like a desiccated mummy (redundant?). Or third-degree burn victim.
Since I’m not about to post pics of myself up on the internet, and I’m feeling a bit of Coffee Prince withdrawal, I figured, why not kill two birds with one procrastinatory stone?
(Random) SONG OF THE DAY
The Melody – “Everything N’Nothing.” Someone asked for more of The Melody, so here’s my favorite song from their first album. [ zShare download ]
What’s funny is that Yoon Eun Hye, and by extension, Eun Chan, totally already looks like an anime character.
You know what’s funnier? If you select the option to “feminize” Gong Yoo’s face, it comes out looking almost exactly the same! No joke. I tried it on several different pictures (because it took a while to get a result that I thought was remotely interesting looking).
