I first heard about this online promo for the new Simpson’s movie from the blog, and I have to say; this rocks! You upload a photo of yourself (it has to be 640×480, so go to Photoshop, create a new blank document that’s 640×480 pixels, then drag a photo of you into that document; scale it and position it so it fills the space, then save it as a JPEG), and it analyzes your face and turns you into a Simpson’s character. You have some control over how the final image looks (including accessories) , and besides being very well done, it’s an incredible productivity killer (luckily, I’m still on vacation, so I have time to do silly stuff like this; see the “Scott Kelby Simpson” version of me shown above). Here’s the link to turn your own photo in a Simpson’s character.
