so since the new simpson movie apparently there’s this new web phenomenon going on at simpsonizeme.com. you can turn any photo of yourself into a simpson’s character. now, i think the first take is kind of crappy — it doesn’t do features too well, but you can tweak it to look more like you and get something moderately ok. if you google (or blackle) “simpsonize me” you get all these blog and forum posts about how much the simpsonizer sucks, but i don’t think it really does — i think their source images suck. i’ve tried it twice on large, facial close-ups and not had problems with the system. it is, however, slow and occasionally gets bogged down with traffic but it’s a pretty fun toy.
