Google Doodle celebrates sculptor Auguste Rodin

Will Ferrell’s “Art Class Guy” is going to be thrilled to hear this.

Google’s latest homepage design celebrates what would have been French sculptor Auguste Rodin’s 172 birthday. When you click on The Thinker in Google, you are brought to the search results for “Auguste Rodin.” Considered the progenitor of modern sculpture, Rodin’s most celebrated works are likely familiar to you, whether you’re an art history buff or not. From “The Age of Bronze” to “St. John the Baptist Preaching” Rodin’s art, influenced heavily by Michelangelo, was quite controversial during his time.

His most famous piece, “Le Penseur (The Thinker),” that Google replicated above, was created in 1902 in Paris. According to his bio on the Metropolitan Museum of Art website, “The increasingly erotic character of Rodin’s sculpture can be explained by his preoccupation with two highly charged literary sources. These were Dante’s Inferno and Baudelaire’s The Flowers of Evil.”

Got a spare two hours? Why not watch every James Bond movie as a single James Bond movie?

So much for getting any work done today.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond movie franchise, not to mention the release of Skyfall tomorrow, the folks at Eon Productions have stitched together all 22 movies featuring Agent 007 into one single omnibus James Bond movie. (Sorry Never Say Never Again fans, wherever you are — it didn’t make the cut.) More intriguing still, this super-Bond film was constructed in chronological order, with the opening sequence from 1962′s Dr. No, followed by roughly the fifth through tenth minutes of 1963′s From Russia With Love, the tenth through fifteenth minutes of 1964′s Goldfinger, and so on up through the final five minutes from 2008′s Quantum of Solace.

It makes for a remarkably cohesive storytelling experience; Carey Lowell wondering where she’s going to get a small prop plane in 1989′s License to Kill, for example, segues perfectly into Pierce Brosnan flying a small prop plane in 1995′s GoldenEye. Whether that’s an indictment of the Bond formula, or a testimony to its resilience, I leave to you to decide.

Your Hidden Gems of Election 2012!

CNN definitely coordinated its “true blue state” shade with the exact color of Anderson Cooper’s icy hot eyes, right? RIGHT?

Who says EW.com’s Hidden Gems franchise needs to be limited to Dancing With the Stars coverage? Usually me, but I’m feeling democratic today. I’ll be compiling fun screenshots of election coverage throughout the night, so go ahead and send in the screen gems — noteworthy quirks that are not necessarily the main focus of the telecast — you notice yourselves.
