The stores have decided that it’s already HalloweenGivingNewYearMastime, which means that it’s time to start thinking about gifts. And a new book of art from Drew Struzan is going straight on my Amazon wishlist.

“The Art of Drew Struzan,” released in September, features art from the man behind posters for some of our most beloved sci-fi and nerd movies — including Star Wars, Back to the Future, The Goonies and Blade Runner.

Io9 recently reviewed the book, giving it a thumbs up and saying it’s chock-full of anecdotes from Struzan’s work with studios and producers, as well as little-seen promotional imagery.

For those keeping score, Struzan has worked on more than just movie posters. He also is noted for his work on covers for Star Wars novels and pop music record albums, as well as (oddly) plates from the Franklin Mint that depict the late Princess Diana of Wales.

So I was looking all around Amazon for something to buy with my new gift card, and just by prestidigitation I came across something magical. Not only am I buying these. I am buying 2 sets. One to drink, one to keep. What could this be you are asking? CLICK HERE TO BUY Dungeon’s&Dragons Jones Soda!!!!

Why does it exist? Who invented it? Why isn’t it at stores? Does it taste good? Does it Fucking Matter!?!?!? NOOOOOO!!!!!!

…Can you see my excitement?

Wonder® Woman by mleak

Wonder® Woman by mleak

When you’re snacking on PB&J made from unhealthy white bread, what do you start thinking about? If you’re a certain Flickr user, you apparently think about sculpting a pseudo-Amazonian princess.

mleak used 11 loaves of Wonder Bread to create her Wonder Woman (get it?), using the carbs for feet, hair and everything in between. In her Flickr gallery, she states that she originally made her creation in her own height, but nature had its way with Princess Diana and shrunk her a bit.

While I don’t see a resemblance to the Wonder Woman we know and love, I still think this is an awesomely creative project. If schools would get kids to do stuff like this instead of doing those hand-turkey things year after year, our world would be a lot more interesting.
