Sloane and Greg, the two Americans behind the Sad Stuff on the Streets blog, want you to know they are not sad people. They are just normal, well-adjusted folks who went from being lovers, to ex-lovers, to friends, and somewhere along the way, they found a recurring theme in sharing pictures of sad stuff on streets with each other. As Greg puts it: “Finding a truly sad thing on the street is like discovering a small treasure. And so you want to share it with somebody.” There’s quite a lot of gems in there too, and the photo-blog welcomes contributions from anyone who wants to share that small treasure.
‘Too good to be true’ is the slogan underneath the blog title, and we couldn’t agree more. Every gem of a headline carries a link to the originating news story from whence it sprung — only because, we suspect, that these wacky headlines would seem fake otherwise. We especially like ‘Adult men who like My Little Pony gather, say they are not creepy’ and ‘For Would-Be Cougars, the Prom Is a Good Start’.
Do you think it is possible to put the words ’health’ and ’brownie’ in the same sentence? Well, the amazing food blog My New Roots by Sarah Britton has made it reality. Try the good-for-you raw brownie and prepared to be amazed. Britton is a holistic nutritionist and vegetarian chef. She is all about super tasty and easy recipes [...]
Yimmy runs a blog called Yimmy’s Yayo. I know nothing about him; I have no idea how old he is. But his blog is one of my favourites. I check it ten times a day just to see what he has posted. It usually consists of half-naked girls, old school rap photos, and out-of-date video [...]
Like his dad, Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong-un is fast catapulting to superstar status on the Internet. First there was the Kim Jong-un Looking At Things blog, a spinoff of the Kim Jong Il Looking At Things blog, but North Korea’s reigning Supreme Leader has shown promise in inching out of his dad’s shadow, as this modest image collection gathered from around the world wide web evidently shows.
Zen Pencils is a comic blog I launched a couple of months ago. I take famous and inspirational quotes and adapt them into comic strips. These quotes can come from anyone that interests me: whether it be serious dudes, like Albert Einstein and Carl Sagan, or rebels, such as Hunter S. Thompson and George Carlin.
dAVE inden writes down the things his brain tells him. Never one stop imagining what it would be like if a unicorn from the moon ran for President of the United States, Inden posts his latest thoughts, stories, poems, and photographs on his blog. Later this year he will be releasing a book called WTF [...]
No to Buh! is a small blog project that evolved into a photo-drawn diary, sometimes accompanied by a few words of commentary. It’s a relief to bring reality back to that basic level of imagery again.
Edel Rodriguez is one of my favorite working illustrators. With such a strong body of work and a variety of approaches to the craft, his art is always exciting and original. Check this blog post he made about his recent trip to Bali. His sketch book entries are beautiful and so full of life. They tell the story better than the photographs.
I didn’t know what people meant by serious style until I visited this website. It features the work and curated posts of Amy Moore, a Graphic Designer and artist who hails from Seattle. I was first struck by the beauty of her work, and of the artwork she sources.
The title of Best Mom Ever has officially been won. Julie made her babies these Star Trek and Star Wars felt activity books. With a couple of tribbles, er, quibbles, I have to say these are possibly the only books a toddler could ever need. Now I understand the hipster fetish for Mormon Mommy Blogs. Sign me up for adoption.

Stuff White People Like is a blog that’s been making the rounds these past few weeks. Its title pretty much says it all, and while it’s pretty clever and funny, it also brings up some uncomfortable racial issues. [check out the Freerice website]
