They Fight Crime (.net) Reviving* one of the greatest random generators in the history of the web with funky fresh font-ography and customization (add your name and that of your crimefighting partner, oh yeah!) - also on Twitter because, why not?
*previously mefi'd at a long-dead link. And yes, you can get the code to create your own teams - or other cliches.

Cyanide and Randomness

Cyanide and Happiness is one of the most successful webcomics, combining very simple 'semi stickperson' characters with very simple gags, sometimes silly, more often gleefully offensive. Of the more than 3000 strips in its history, hundreds are three-panel interactions between 'Mr. Blue' and 'Mr. Green'. From those, they have now made a Random Comic Generator, which creates comics that sometimes make more sense than the originals. [more inside]

Markov GIFs

"cachemonet is an exploration into the serendipitous collisions that occur between two randomly generated arrays. the arrays contain a mix of custom and found .gifs sourced from tumblr. the output is autonomous, generative, art made possible through curation & code." (WARNING: frequent flashing/optically intense backrounds, plus full volume sound [mutable from top-right corner button])

"Rumor is Disney is basing its next cartoon on you." No, it won't be "Dumbo 2"

Emergency Compliment Random reassurances, as close as your web browser. (Of course, if you like what they say, they'll sell you a poster.)

SMYT: Saturday Morning You Tube

Pop music in the '60s ran the gamut from Bobby Russell's "Saturday Morning Confusion" to "Come Saturday Morning" (from the soundtrack of "The Sterile Cuckoo"* and performed by the same guys who sang of "Guantanamo -mera"). And they still write songs today about "Saturday Morning" (with pancakes! and vampires!).

The first thing Disney did when it took over ABC was "One Saturday Morning"**. But then there are the "REAL Saturday Morning Watchmen" (remixed from previously on MeFi). (other Saturday Morning video posts)

*yes, that is a very young Liza Minnelli
**I'll never forgive them for canceling "Reboot" and "Bump in the Night", the only Saturday toons I still enjoyed, because they weren't produced by Disney
