Thanks for the post! Fun stuff. Even Rocky had a montage.

I wonder how many "spears" "klum" and "lohan" montages there will be :p

Also. Too bad you cannot save the thing directly (without using printscreen).

Very interesting. I also wouldn't mind a save option. Also, I have seen web-image montages that create more random groupings, sizes, transparencies, etc. That might make this endlessly time-wasting fascinating.

oddly addicting! Thanks for the link!

Great fun,... but when I typed in “bush,” I didn’t get the montage of vegetation I was looking for. So, I typed in “shrub.” Wouldn’t ya know, that familiar face still popped up in the midst of green.

Oooh, maybe I should give “bushes” a try...

In Firefox 1.0 it tells me I don't have Flash Player 7 installed (which I do). In IE 6 it works fine.

Yes, yes, yes. Brilliant. Thanks.

I typed in my first name and it came out to be a mix of naked from the waist up women, baby picutures, happy looking clothed young women and a hispanic movie poster with its title being my name. I love it.

I like the montages made from the names of cities too.

im at work and a little cautious about entering my own name.
I share the name of some homo-erotic photographer guy. I remember the shock my mum had when she got online for the first time and googled my name.

Firefox 0.8, I don't see where to enter my search term...only Advanced Options

Funniest. Movie. Ever.

I know. I made a couple that would have made fun desktops.

At best, you can do a screen capture (Print Screen to copy screenshot to clipboard in Windows, Apple-Shift-3 to save PDF to desktop in Mac OS X), and bring that into your favorite image editor.

I have Flash Player 7 installed. Firefox 1.0 and IE 6 just show me a black screen. Underwhelming.

One reason I don't fear using my real name on this site is that there are about a dozen people on the web with the same name. Some of them are a lot more famous than me. Like, there is an ex pro wrestler, who actually only lives about 20 miles from me, with the same name. There is some guy in Australia who writes books about communities or something. There is a golden retriever who died. There is some guy who was president of the southern marketing association or some BS. There is an honest to god, fairly well known gay porn star. I bought one of his movies. Just to be sure.

Rusty, is your name Joey Michaels, too?

I like Jamie Zawinski's Webcollage, which does searches for arbitrary words and grabs images from the pages that match, and really makes a collage with them.

The awesome thing about Webcollage is that the goatse.cx guy pops up about once every 30 minutes. That is what the web looks like.

Firefox 1.0, working fine here.

Slowly, but it is working.

I like this.
