Graham Annable posted several new Lost sketches. (Boy, last night's episode was terrible. Nothing more than treading water for 60 minutes.)

Fargo/Bullit mashup (link roundup)

And a few more links:

1. Angus MacLane posted more Lego CubeDudes: Dreadnocks from G.I. Joe, The Atom, Namor, and Plastic Man.

2. Star Wars toy patents. Via.

3. I was pretty disappointed with Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon. The dragon designs are lackluster, and the story is cliched and manipulative (as basic as having a mean person kick a puppy to make you feel sad). I have no desire to see any moment of it again. My 3 and 5 year olds barely tolerated it. Cartoonists, it's time for a story that's not about the hottest girl throwing herself at the super geek. You could do young boys a service by suggesting realistic techniques for winning a girl's heart. You know - - something other than using a dragon to abduct them.
