Today's theme: imagination comes to life!

First off, the National Museum of American History has an exhibit on Jim Henson and the Muppets all summer. Also coming out this summer: a LEGO version of the Arkham Asylum from Batman -- all 860 pieces of it! (The asylum, that is, not Batman.)

The Marvel Atlas Project tries to pin down where everyone lives in the Marvel Universe, or at least those who live on Earth. Meanwhile, over in China, there's an abandoned theme park that looks to be the eastern equivalent of EPCOT's World Showcase, and someone got in and took over 100 photos. There's nothing like seeing a Chinese-made version of Arizona...

If you like Katamari Damacy (and really, who doesn't?), you'll love this group who ran the Bay to Breakers race in San Francisco dressed as characters from the game and rolling a katamari the whole way. They need to get together with the Electric Giraffe and start some performance art revolution, I think.
