It hurts my brain to think of the hours it must have taken Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Sanches to make an entire short film using only Instagram photos taken in Amsterdam, Berlin and Lisbon, but it certainly pleasures my eyes to watch the delightful two minute experiment. As its name suggests, Summer Eleven was filmed in […]
Living in the far away land of kangaroos and prawns on the barbie, I often lean on the always reliable internet to keep me informed. As a visual learner, I really appreciated this tumblr which helped communicate what I can only imagine was a key argument in the recent Presidential Debate.
Remember Kids Say The Darndest Things, that CBS TV show with Bill Cosby? Well, that was great, but sooooo 1990s. In 2012, CBS is tumblr, kids saying awkward stuff is jpegs and gifs, and Bill Cosby is a fifteen year old with an Internet connection and really great Google skills, presenting to us some unintentionally awkward test responses from children.
If ridiculous photos are not the best thing about the Internet, then I don’t know what is. Perfectly Timed Photos is about to steal about 40 minutes of your day, but it will add about four years to your total lifespan (it’s been scientifically proven that laughter makes you live longer, right?)
There are few benefits to being born a Soviet. After 25 years as a Moldovan, however, I have identified three: pickled delicacies, rose gold, and the god given right to laugh at other Russians. I think there is just something undeniably hilarious about stereotypical Russians, and for the next five minutes, I extend my birthright to you, reader, so that you can be unrestrained in your enjoyment of these awfully photoshopped Russian wedding pictures.
If you can incite anger or disappointment in another species, then you know you have really masted the Ebenezer Scrooge thing. I, on the other hand, have the terribly naff habit of smiling goofily at animals because, in all seriousness, how the heck are you supposed to interact with small fluffy things?
I’ve heard of pet owners looking like their dogs, or of wives looking like their husbands’ mothers. But this is the first time I’ve ever been enlightened enough to know that celebrities can also look like mattresses. All of a sudden, I find myself pitying the likes of Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears, who have been lambasted for being so quick to bed. Clearly, it wasn’t their fault. The uncanny resemblance to a mattress is just too much for a tired man.
There can be no doubt that Pinterest is a wicked social media platform, two million users will attest to that. But there can also be no denying that is almost cringeworthingly girly: there are more wedding dresses, hairstyles and baked good recipes on there than there are Bieber fans on Twitter. So what is a […]
For some, producing a delicious home made dessert really requires pulling a rabbit out of a magic hat. Literally. Bunny Pops are the macaroon of popsicle molds: fancy, potentially delicious and very pretty. With these badboys on the menu, you now have a (semi) legitimate excuse to wear a cape to your next dinner party, […]
I belong to the school of thought that nothing says sorry like a really delicious, giant cake. Or a stack of fudge. Or bling, if it’s really shiny and gold. But aside from tasty treats and sparkly things, I realise that the most important thing at the end of the day is the sentiment attached to an apology, so Sorry I’m such an Asshole balloons would suffice. As long as they’re not full of hot air.
In 1986, Paul Hogan exposed to the rest of the world that there is something a bit “odd” about Australians. I’m not sure it’s something that we’ve actively tried to live down in the decades since, but I’m going to hazard a guess that sending thousands upon thousands of bikini-clad Aussies off shore on giant inflatable lilo Havaianas annually does not help this reputatation.
This is a one gallon hip flask. These are the reasons you may need one: 1. I’ve tried booking hotels in two Australian cities this week, and apparently they are all full. I have also tried catching several taxis this week, and waddaya know, they’re all full too. Based on this field research, I’ve come to the conclusion that the planet is overpopulating and we’re all going to sufffocate. Let’s get drunk so we pass out before that happens.
The Rap Board is one of those gifts from the internet that, in theory, you think you don’t need or want. But before you go digging for the receipt whilst fantasising about your exchange gift, I strongly urge you to give it a go. Quite simply, The Rap Board is a soundboard of rapper catch-phrases […]
WARNING: Reading this post will change your life. You wanna know why? It’s because I am telling you right now that you can be a world record breaker. All of you. Any of you. Seriously, hit up Record Setter and you can be like these guys, who now hold the record for Most Times For […]
About nine months ago, I really wanted a puppy. We had already decided he would be a cavoodle named Lupe Mckee, and that he would be cuddly and fun and have a happy disposition. These days, whilst I would still love to have a fluffy little Lupe to look after, I have come to accept that owning a pet is an unrealistic dream: I can’t look after a plant, let alone an animal, right now.
