Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Friday 4 January 2013

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’.

The Prez is Not Impressed Tumblr

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Websites on Monday 10 December 2012

There, there, we all know that the US president threw on his most unimpressed scowl for a photo with Gymnast McKayla Maroney at the White House. US gymnast McKayla Maroney, as we we all know, flashed her now signature Not Impressed look for taking a silver at the 2012 London Olympics, which quickly went viral afterwards. So this Tumblr collection of Obama popping up everywhere with his unimpressed look — like Brad Pitt’s Chanel ad — was inevitable.

Citation Needed Tumblr

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Websites on Saturday 1 December 2012

The collective intelligence of the human race is a good thing, right? Well, not always. Citation Needed, the companion blog to a book of the same title by Conor Lastowka and Josh Fruhlinger deftly showcases instances of ‘The Best of Wikipedia’s Worst Writing’. They are dead right.

David Bowie As Everyone Tumblr

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Saturday 17 November 2012

Halt your brains now, because here’s something deep: what if David Bowie was omnipresent? Hell, what if he was… omni-person? In steps this blog that puts Bowie’s face where it belongs: on everyone and everything. He’s Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, a ‘sexy sexy’ cactus, crystal balls, Han Solo, insectile demons, The Cure’s Robert Smith and all of Motley Crue. Some of these Photoshopped efforts are frankly quite terrifying.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Websites on Saturday 10 November 2012

Teachers who’ve had to put up with years of far-out trash their students hand in for school assignments finally have an outlet in the Shit My Students Write Tumblr. If our future world leaders make it somewhere in there, we’re royally screwed — then again, like in politics, we might at least get a good laugh out of it.

Ethan Lovell’s photo blog

Kira Heuer Reader Find

By Kira Heuer in New Photography on Wednesday 7 November 2012

I’ve been keeping an eye on this soul surfing, tribal exploring, nomadic spirited photographer for a while now. He captures something in his work that tells the ‘real’ story. The rawness of someone’s humanity mixed with an elegance sways me into wanting to view the next cool mission he goes on. He also has some good tunes on his website, so as you do your scrolling, put some melodies on to compliment your viewing.

Living in the far away land of kangaroos and prawns on the barbie, I often lean on the always reliable internet to keep me informed. As a visual learner, I really appreciated this tumblr which helped communicate what I can only imagine was a key argument in the recent Presidential Debate.
