The magazine was launched in October 2009. In the beginning they literally worked with close friends and […]
The Internet’s a pretty big place, and it’s difficult to comprehend the sheer volume of content being uploaded to the web at any given time. This website does a great job of impressing upon us just how much is happening on the Internet every second. Indeed. Just a few minutes on this website will make […]
I figured Charlie Brown was kind of emo, but I really should know he’s more old-school than that. While Chuck lacks the impressive coif of Morrissey, Moz’s lyrics fit into Peanuts comics all too well, as evidenced by This Charming Charlie. ‘I would go out tonight but I haven’t got a stitch to wear’ takes on a whole new meaning when you consider that Charlie Brown has worn the same shirt for his entire existence.
This is a real life blog about Hafid, the douchebag that stole one Tumblr user’s phone on a beach in Ibiza, Spain. The phone thief didn’t think to turn off the automatic photo upload on the Dropbox app, so all of Hafid’s pictures appear on the original phone owner’s computer. Now Hafid’s adventures are chronicled […]
“Finding pointer… Please hold still.” “Pointer located. Pointing…” Priceless words for a priceless website. This site has an endless repository of images with people pointing cheekily to where your mouse cursor is onscreen. What can we say? We are easily amused.
Clearly Stated, a project of Ian Aleksander Adams and Josué Rivera, is both a literary publication and a collaborative game for the contributors. It’s like a word version of ‘exquisite corpse': the first writer blindly hands over a block of text which omits all formatting (punctuation, line breaks, capital letters) for a second writer to […]

More as an experiment than for self-amusement, a group called the Anti-Banality Union started the Copselfies tumblr to raise awareness of rising police authority. In a brief description on the site, the group states: ‘Cops can look and act just like real people. This act of mimesis allows them to walk among us, to live in […]
Who doesn’t like beautiful babes beautifully shot? The Parisian blog, Popflys, is full of trendy fashion, skateboard, and art posts, but what really catches eyes is the Babes section of the website. Here, creator Andrew Rutledge, takes time to give the viewers (as well as himself) a much needed Babe Break, in which he photo-dumps […]
If you’re like the rest of us, you’re still mourning the end of the sixth season of Mad Men. Lucky for you (and me), there’s a new Tumblr that gives hilarious and witty captions to screenshots of Mad Men episodes. Because really, what’s better than making fun of Don Draper? Now you can satisfy your […]
Dutch-Brazilian visual artist Rafaël Rozendaal has a Twitter feed which he updates religiously with tweets of what he eats. It’s perfectly mundane and perfectly fun. Actually, it comes across as showing up the ridiculousness of all these food Instagrams that choke the Internet highway every second.
Thanks to the crazy colours that iOS 7 is fast becoming unmistakably synonymous with, people are taking this to the extreme and out of context by imposing hyper colors on everything under the sun and blaming it on Apple’s SVP of Design Jonathan Ive. Yup, anything goes, really.
