Dashboard Joan Holloway (link roundup)

Dashboard Joan Holloway by mister frothee, who has also created Mad Men and Deadwood bobbleheads.

And a few more links:

1. Jeff Probst makes the villain of the latest season of Survivor sound fascinating.

2. Looks like the Twitter account is history, but for awhile it listed some pretty funny tag lines, including:

Pennzoil. America's Finest Motor Zoil.
You can find a few more here.

3. Nissan wants to give its silent electric cars a special sound:
The company consulted Japanese composers of film scores. What Tabata and his six-member team came up with is a high- pitched sound reminiscent of the flying cars in “Blade Runner,” the 1982 film directed by Ridley Scott portraying his dystopian vision of 2019.
I've long thought that it was a matter of time before we could download engine sounds for our cars the way we can download ringtones for our phones.
