Photobooth Journal‘ is both her personal photographic journal and a blog for lovers of photo booth photography, with many gems from the past.

Sad Stuff on the Streets

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Websites on Friday 27 July 2012

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.

Onion-Like Headlines In Real Life Tumblr

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Saturday 21 July 2012

‘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’.

Hungry Kim Jong-un meme

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Saturday 21 April 2012

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.
