"The .GIFYS are the first ever awards honoring the animated GIF as a medium, social commentary and art form." The finalists were chosen by a panel of alleged GIF experts, with the final vote up to the public... THAT'S YOU. Categories range from Nature & Science to WTF (and of course, Cats). Many of the Usual Suspects are there, including Walter White, Rob Ford, Doge, and Oprah's Bees (a shoo-in for GIF of the Year, get it? shoo-in?)... Come on in and Get Animated. [more inside]

Hockey is violent grace, or sometimes just silly.

Kings and Sharks Dance Offs started when both teams first met in the playoffs. It took over the series talk thread and Game Day Threads until it got it's own thread. Since then, it has become a tradition.

"Ouga Chaka Ouga!"

OMGif! [Wired] "On Tuesday, Google announced via Google+ that Image Search now has an “Animated” filter. That means that if you’re only searching for animated magic, you need never be bothered with a still image again. Finally that search for Jennifer Lawrence GIFs from the Academy Awards just got a whole lot easier."

The art of Kevin J. Weir, who enjoys bears, space, and GIFs

Kevin J. Weir is an artist, making ads (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), and more interestingly, not ads. In the latter category, he has made 3 stand-alone sites: the Flux Machine, a tumblr of public domain images turned into animated GIFs, ranging from amusing to surreal (with an extra dash of Lovecraft), which Cartoon Brew likened to Terry Gilliam and Stan VanDerBeek; Nyan Waits, another spin-off of the Nyan Cat meme/theme, now with more Tom Waits; and Loud Portraits, an interactive portrait gallery.

Old Cats in Hats

The best animated gif about hats you'll see this year.* by Micaël Reynaud, who has other cool morphing things on his Google+ page, as well as videos, photos, drawings and stuff. If your animated gif tastes go more to abstract/geometric/optical-illusion/seizure-triggering (that's a warning), check out david ope on tumblr (where you expect to find the gifs).
