Inspirational rap lyrics that are anything but

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Friday 5 July 2013

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.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Thursday 4 July 2013

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.

Science started drunk posting on Tumblr

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in Cool Websites on Saturday 22 June 2013

‘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.

Obama is checking your email

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Saturday 15 June 2013

Obama checks a lot of email, and he’s looking at everybody’s email. That is the premise of this amusing Tumblr, which started as a dig at the NSA surveillance scandal that is currently gaining a lot of attention for intruding on the personal privacy of individuals.
