File this in the “why didn’t I think of it first?” folder: Look At This F**king Hipster is a hilarious new blog that pokes fun at everyone’s favorite brand of poser. With their absurd sense of style and their even more ridiculous sense of entitlement, hipsters are sort of like your favorite animal at the zoo. It’s not like you’d ever want to be stuck in a cage with them — or at a party, for that matter — but they’re pretty fun to point and gawk at, which is why this blog is all kinds of brilliant. Saving you the annoyance of having to actually deal with these badly dressed trust fund kids yourself, or giving you an outlet an outlet if you do, Look At This F**king Hipster posts photos of real-life hipsters in and out of their natural habitat. From subway platforms to house parties, they bring their collective brand of irony everywhere they go, making themselves the perfect target for caption like this: “Someone told me there’s going to be a rodeo over at Barcade tonight.” [via Scanner] Keep reading »
Yesterday, a breaking news item of epic importance tore its way across the blogosphere. Mary Rambin, the blond, bebobbed, bubbly third portion of the NonSociety crew, was leaving the fold. After we picked ourselves up off the floor, wiped away our tears, and told ourselves everything really would be OK if we just prayed a lot, we started wondering who would be fit to replace the Rambin. It’s hard to imagine someone else filling her overpriced shoes, and be as devoted to live blogging their colon cleansings with such vim, such vigor. But we persevered. After the jump, the top 10 contenders for who should replace Mary on NonSociety, even though she can never be replaced in our hearts. Keep reading »
Since a lot of us spend our free time updating our Facebook status, Tweeting, reblogging Tumblr posts, and keeping up with the world online, it can be hard to connect with people in real life. But from time to time, online activity can lead to relationships with real, live humans. On Sunday, the New York Times profiled a blogger-commenter romance in the Style Section. True love comes to those who comment! Keep reading »
We’ve posted about amazing Tumblr blogs that we love before, but I have a new favorite that’s obviously a little particular to my tastes. F*ck Yeah! Ryan Gosling posts random photos of my hunk of burning love with hilarious smooth come-ons like, “Hey girl, I heard you like beards so I grew one last night,” “Hey girl, I heard you like songs so I wrote you one,” and “Hey girl, when I tackle some body I think I’m giving you the biggest hug ever.” The genius behind the blog THAT I SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT OF, also posts for F*ck Yeah! Anne Hathaway, which is funny, but not nearly as sexy. Keep reading »

Model of the moment Coco Rocha has a blog: Oh So Coco. The 20-year-old, Toronto-born model, who once famously Irish stepdanced down Jean Paul Gaultier’s runway, offers a peek behind the scenes at days in the life of a fashion plate. She hopes a woman on the street who takes her photograph, sans makeup, has Photoshop, posts a video of herself dancing around while brushing her teeth, and reveals that Vogue had the exclusive rights to her new red hair, so she had to keep it under wraps until the January issue hit the newsstands. For other fashion icons online, check out Chanel Iman‘s YouTube channel and Hedi Slimane‘s diary. [The Cut] Keep reading »

Tumblr is the awesome blogging platform out there right now. Unlike Typepad or Blogger, you don’t need to know a lick of HTML to post thoughts or images onto your own blog from your computer or phone. Best of all, it also allows you to follow other Tumblr bloggers via your dashboard, similar to the way you’d follow websites you like via an RSS feed. Even if you just want a place to post your favorite photos for friends and family to see, or compile favorite quotes, Tumblr makes it idiot proof, and the more bloggers you follow on your dashboard, the more cool information, pictures, and articles you’ll discover. After the jump, some of my favorite Tumblogs to follow.

Tracy Clark-Flory wrote an interesting piece for Salon’s Broadsheet this week about the increasing number of sex writers facing termination at major newspapers and websites like Fleshbot and the Village Voice, saying, “These are scary times for sex writers.” Our own Susannah Breslin says, “Sometimes people become sex writers because they screw a lot, not necessarily because they can write well.” With that in mind, we’ve compiled a short list of some sex writers who DO write well and should be on your radar, recession lay (offs) be damned!
