- Fourteen hilarious photos of dog faces to brighten up your afternoon.
I'm going to preface this link description with the following advisory message: if you have found that your afternoon is sufficiently bright enough already than by all means feel free to bookmark this link for later. Otherwise, if the brightness levels are not at the required level of preferred enjoyability then go ahead and view some dog-foolery with this collection of canine camera work. OMG, cupcake!

- Some photos of an amazing three-dimensional street mural for your dizzying pleasure.
The folks over at WebUrbanist have uncovered some awesome photos of a street illusion over in Stockholm. There are some videos over on their site in which the artist gives a behind the scenes look at how the overall effect was achieved. Last interesting note: traditionally sidewalk or street art is done in chalk but this installation was pulled off using massively printed sheets (to achieve the photo-realism element of the project).

- Storm over Saturn makes for some pretty pictures.
Behold pictures of Saturn's largest and most intense storm to date (larger photos on source site). Aren't they pretty? These images come from NASA's Cassini Spacecraft. The folks over at New Scientist state that the various colors represent different altitudes of clouds, not Saturn's overall mood and/or demeanor. As a sidenote: I made a similar picture the other day by accidentally mixing oil and water on the pavement.

- A handy tutorial on how to create your very own realistic soda bottle in Photoshop.
An interesting tutorial for those interested in dabbling with some photo-realistic effects from scratch. When all is said done you'll be way more familiar with the pen tool as well as the ancient art of dodging and burning. Now if you'll excuse me, I am in dire need of a cool glass of Crystal Pepsi.

- A gallery of the world's worst playgrounds through the playful eye of Photoshop.
As a kid did anyone ever actually play a game of Tic Tac Toe on one of these things? Who thought this was a good idea? Oh, and be careful going down that twisty slide, you may get wet.

- Apple seems to have lost yet another iPhone prototype.
Here we go again - not sure how Apple would've been able to make the same mistake twice given the publicity of the last prototype that was lost. A teardown of the device has revealed an Apple branded microchip, just like the iPad.
- Marvel and Disney character mashups through the mutated eye of Photoshop.
Mike Wazowski is Bruce Banner as The Incredible Myopic Hulk - and there's your plot for The Incredible Hulk 2 (or 3?) and/or Monsters Inc 2. The scary part is that legally, this can actually be made (Disney owns Marvel) and someone in Hollywood probably thinks its a good idea.

- A new crop of images have surfaced online for the upcoming Tron sequel.
I'm loving the upgrades to some of the items from the original Tron and seeing how they've been reimagined for this generation. C'mon, you know you'd want to take a ride on a light cycle. And remember kids, Tron Legacy is due in theaters this December. END OF LINE.

- Some amazing photos of that pesky volcanic ash for you to gawk at.
If you happened to be doing some overseas traveling over the past few days you might have noticed a delay or two (possibly more numerous than that). While this would've made for a really good excuse to justify the lack of recent GLM postings, sadly (or happily - depending how you look at it) it wasn't the case. More on that later.

- Unlikely underwater sports through the aquatic eye of Photoshop.
In the future we will all be able to take part in the great spectable that is Dolphin Racing. I wonder if anyone submitted anything of the Blitzball variety - that would have just been nerdtastic.

- Honest products through the truthful eye of Photoshop.
You can always count on a Photoshop contest to reveal the true nature of popular products and services. You'll also get a quick education about the popular consensus of said product and/or service. Handy and redundant.
