The Saul Bass Google Doodle is really good. 

Watch this. When you hear companies talking about using “Flat Design,” what they really mean is “kinda like Saul Bass.”

Cesar Chavez, American hero, born Mar. 31, 1927.
How much do I love that right-wingers are mad at Google for featuring him today instead of Easter! Don’t they remember Jesus said “Render unto Cesar the things which are Cesar’s”?

We celebrate Easter every year. This guy isn’t getting nearly as much press these days. He played a key role for numerous farm workers nationwide. Don’t know about you all, but I’m OK with the Easter Bunny getting a snub this year, especially since:

Fasting was just one expression of his deep spirituality. Like most farmworkers, Chavez was a devout Catholic. His vision of religion was a progressive one, that prefigured the “preferential option for the poor” of liberation theology. In the UFW, the mass was a call to action as well as a rededication of the spirit.

Seems like he was working in the spirit of his religion, rather than merely celebrating it every year.

The fine folks at Google continue to wow with the specialty Google Doodle, this one celebrating what would have been the 78th birthday of Bob Moog, godfather of the synthesizer. The doodle is already live in such parts of the world where it’s already May 23rd, but for Americans yet have a bit to wait. This follows up another massively popular musical doodle from last year, in honor of electric guitar pioneer Les Paul.

Today’s Google Poland Google Doodle is a next level Google Doodle. It’s in honor of Polish author Stanisław Lem.

This makes all of Google’s other doodles (including this one) look like they’re not trying hard enough.

Google marks what would have been stop-motion clay animation pioneer Art Cloakey’s 90th birthday.

And it’s fully interactive, of course.

Somehow cooler than the Muppet one. Surprisingly.

Google’s epic doodle in honor of Freddie Mercury: This music video for “Don’t Stop Me Now” redefines the doodle. Check it out on Google’s Japanese front page, where it’s already up (it’ll go up in the U.S. on Tuesday, to ensure everyone sees it, since it’s y’know, Labor Day here). It’s amazing. Mercury would’ve been 65 today. Read up more on the rock icon over here, in the words of close friend and Queen bandmate Brian May.
