Thinking about moving to New York? The Worst Room provides the antidote to TV’s spacious and beautiful apartments that normal people can afford. I’d like to see Friends re-set in some of these.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in advertising? This Advertising Life is a tumblog documenting the emotions of a working life in advertising as told through GIFs. If you’re an advertising student or considering a career in this field, this hilarious tumblr will give you the ins and outs of working in this challenging […]
Jim’ll Paint It is a Tumblr blog where a guy named Jim illustrates wacky reader-submitted stories using only Microsoft Paint and his imagination. He’s pretty talented, and his blog is definitely entertaining. So, what do you want Jim to paint?
Any parent would empathise with this: seemingly endless moments when their baby is crying, with a seemingly endless list of causes for the unhappiness. Part-time radio executive Greg Pembroke, a dad from Rochester, New York, basically accepted that his 20-month-old son Charlie was just going to have his frequent meltdowns and set up a hilarious […]
When I was a kid, I had a paper route. One of my customers had no teeth, and I only found this out when I made her laugh one day. Then it seemed that no matter how hard I tried not to, I would do something to make her laugh every time I had to […]
For all you Parks and Rec fans out there, this is the cat-based Tumblr for you. We all know that there’s a million cat photos on the internet, but apparently there are quite a handful that look like Ron Swanson. Who would have thought?
We all know that cats dominate the internet, but now they’re taking over the realm of science too. This hilarious tumblr shows cats experimenting in the laboratory and other scientific locations. If you’re a cat lover who’s feeling a bit scientific, you can submit a photo of your own.
It’s No Biggie is a project initiated by Thoka Maer. Of the project, she says: ‘it’s satire, it’s entertainment, it’s you, it’s me, it’s annoy-ment, it’s life, it’s endlessness, it’s here and there’. I just find these mini-animations totally cool and a nice break from it all.
We’re digging the hilarious Les Mean Girls, the latest Tumblr full of meme mashups to grace our screens. Who knew that the classics Mean Girls and Les Misérables would mesh together so perfectly? Totally fetch!
Barring the rather excellent Numb3rs drama series and, er, New Orleans band Mutemath, the Facemath Tumblr is probably the best pop culture use of mathematics we have seen so far. Facemath adds up a bunch of celebs (random objects like facial hair or bunny ears also make an appearance) to emerge with one celeb, the sum of the total. Every math sum here is solved in a way that’s so oddly comprehensible, it’s geeky without alienating the non-geeks.
Finally, a Tumblr blog dedicated to documenting the fashion of the elderly. But really though, why should the young hipsters get all the attention? These snazzy and stylish senior citizens definitely deserve some recognition.
The Movie Barcode Tumblr shows your favorite films in a whole new way. Every frame in the entire film is compressed into a single barcode-like image, giving you a sense of the color palette used by the filmakers. This image is the film ‘Pulp Fiction’.
Facts aren’t always facts. And for these times when the facts are too confusing, and what’s held up to be science is less than factual, you have the Fake Science blog to document it all. Did you know, for instance, that frozen food is healthy and fresh because it’s shipped directly from where it’s farmed? No? Now you do!
We’ve been enthralled by Filippo Minelli’s ethereal work before. But we only recently realised that he was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2010. With his immune system taking a hit from chemotherapy, he was barred from meeting anyone and had to use his iPhone to communicate with friends and family.
Sometimes a picture of someone with a dead smile is all you need to remind yourself of how dreary life is. Or not. Because, you know, everybody hurts. The Smile Like You’re Dead Inside Tumblr accepts reader submissions so ‘we can all have a good laugh at your misery’. Even Nicolas Cage, who everybody makes fun of, makes a bonus appearance in a fan photo.
