The Origin of the Species: Ten Illustrated Versions


The Origin of the Lego Man

2009 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin’s most famous work On the Origin of Species (published 24 November 1859). Plus, Thursday (2/12) would have been his 200th birthday. The New York Times’ science section published this article on Tuesday, and I have even been invited to weird FaceBook events honoring both this controversial book and Darwin’s anniversary of birth . Of course, I can’t even think of the book’s title without also being reflexively thrown to thoughts of Type O Negative’s infamous live CD, The Origin of The Feces, but that is a different story. Keeping it on a lighter note, Listicles looks at the evolution of the most familiar graphic shorthand for Darwin’s entire theory with their 10 Illustrated Versions of Evolution, including the Evolution of Lego Man, seen above.

Type O Negative's Man of Steele

Man of Steele, Indeed!

It’s official: Playgirl Magazine has shuttered for good. This is sad news for gay men, and women who enjoy looking at naked pictures of  gay men, everywhere. Playgirl was never really my thing, but I’ll always remember when Type O Negative’s lead singer, Peter Steele, took it all off for the magazine back in 1995. Ah, sweet, sweet memories.

ABSOLUTELY NOT SAFE FOR WORK IMAGE OF WHAT MADE THAT PETE STEELE ISSUE SO MEMORABLE AFTER THE JUMP!
