Sometimes you just need to take selfie. And sometimes you really need to get a selfie with your grandmother’s casket in the background. This shouldn’t be a real Tumblr. But I’m kind of glad it is. Can we just take moment to notice the hashtag use here? “#photoof theday”? Really?
Here’s a Tumblr dedicated to portraits of bookshelves and their proud owners. Book Selfies combines the “selfie” trend with a love of literature. Anything from vintage black and white shots, to animal photos, to glamour shots, to actual selfies taken with a phone, this photo collection has every demographic you can think of posing in front […]
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 […]
I collected baseball cards briefly as a kid, because that was just what you did. I didn’t enjoy it at all. Had I been the one to think of Baseball Card Vandals, my childhood might have been turned around.
Brussels-based artist ADN decided to take celebrities and characters from popular television shows and reinterpret them as if they were in The Simpsons. It’s a simple but funny idea, and the characters are completely recognizable in their Simpsonized state.
This Tumblr just goes to show that ‘even world famous rappers have problems’. Ali Graham illustrates one of Jay-Z’s “99 problems” every day for 99 days, giving Jay-Z’s lyrics a whole new meaning. These illustrations are hilariously witty, and now you have something to look forward to for the next 53 days.
This is perfect: the most banal lyrics from rap tunes, superimposed against beautifully lit, inspirational pictures. Not sure who’s behind this brilliant Tumblr, but he or she sure has the mordant mission of ‘celebrating the poetic beauty of rap lyrics’ down pat.
Now this is slightly morbid. Simone Rovellini — who created his first Exploding Actresses creation with Julie Andrews from The Sound of Music because ‘the paradox of such a sweet character exploding was comic‘ — has since gone on to make scores of animated GIFs with other actresses exploding with the help of After Effects. […]
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 […]
Do you love candy? Do you study it, dissect it carefully, and generally find it to be worthy of close inspection? Then join all your friends Scandybars, the Tumblr dedicated to scrumptious cross-sections of every kind of candy bar. Scrolling through the photos is like getting a world tour of sweet shops.
When your digital camera brakes and, instead of holiday snaps begins producing glorious lines of incomprehensible colour, do you discard the camera or celebrate its imperfection? Year of the Glitch, by Phillip Stearns, provides 365 days of fractured images exploring glitch art through a broad range of techniques, from the manipulation of code to the […]
‘Go home, evolution, you are drunk’. WTF Evolution is a Tumblr dedicated to all the weirdest, grimmest, most backwards results of natural selection known to science. Take for example Amazonian frogs. They can mate even when the female is dead. And that’s kind of disgusting.
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.
Perhaps you recall Anarchy in the UK by the Sex Pistols from back in the 70s. The song placed 56 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. So there’s that. And here’s what’s happened all these 40 years later with the rise of the Tumblr generation. I found this hilarious illustration. […]
It seems the only people embracing Google Glass are white males. So someone started a Tumblr with a steady stream of images of all the nerdy, white men wearing them. As the page itself states, ‘… if Google Glass didn’t exist, all these Silicon Valley guys would be having affairs or buying unsuitable motorbikes’.
