One Tiny Hand Is All It Takes To Change The World

Well, that’s all it takes to change my world, at least.  The Tumblr blog, One Tiny Hand, is one tiny step for hands, one giant leap for mankind. Amelia alerted me to its existence this morning and I feel like Neil Armstrong when he first set foot on the moon. It’s a whole new universe.

The Soapbox: Gizmodo’s “Pinterest Is Tumblr For Ladiez” Is Insulting To Everyone

I’m not a big fan of the tech blog Gizmodo. While I am a self-professed geek-girl who loves technology, I often find their tone to be a little too snarky, a little too condescending, and the comments to be some of the worst the troll world can offer. And after the nasty Magic the Gathering

Yours,
Amelia

How To Get Featured On _________ [Insert Style Blog Name]

There was a time a couple years ago when getting featured on The Sartorialist was a goal for many a stylish New Yorker. I got lucky early and was snapped the week after I moved to the city, but friends and workmates alike were left scheming, stalking and plotting to run into Scott Schuman while wearing the…

It’s All Kate News All The Time On Katebook

Kate is only the 838th most popular name in the US, but to former Frisky staffer, Kate Torgovnick, it felt like number one sometimes. She often commented how it blew her mind how many freaking Kates there were out there. Maybe that’s what prompted her to start signing her emails K8. Anyhow, we miss her…

Puppy,” a Tumblr blog which pits a picture of The Gos against a similar picture of a puppy, the web has unearthed my very own Sophie’s Choice.

This Dad Is More Embarrassing Than Your Dad

If you took the bus to school, you probably remember the days your parents waved goodbye to you from the end of the driveway or the front porch. Depending on your mood, your age, and whether or not your crush was aboard the bus, this was either a sweet gesture or the most mortifying moment…

Forever 21 Wants To Shut Down Blogger … For Making Fun Of Forever 21

It’s often the biggest companies that have the tightest reign on their public perception — and inexpensive clothing company Forever 21 is no exception. Despite their public image of being young and fun (and, oh, totally Christian), the company is really, really up in arms over WTForever21, a funny blog that chronicles the hits and…

And now we’ve got a whole bunch of new Tom Haverfordisms to memorize and incorporate into our food vocabularies. Gum?

Art Imitates Life For Paula Deen

I’ve been obsessing about Paula Deen since her appearance on “Top Chef.” I want to be friends with her. Since that’s not a reality yet, I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Tumblr blog, Paula Deen Riding Things and apparently, so has she. “I think it’s great to see how creative my fans are!……

Does The Internet Need A Geek Culture Site For Women?

The Mary Sue, a new geek culture blog, just launched a hot second ago, and in one of the very first posts, a staff blogger explains to readers why a geek site “for women” is really necessary. It was an explanation I needed, frankly, because at first blush, I saw an Oscars roundup and a

Let Them Eat Beefcake!

My mom never had a collection of Playgirl magazines. Thank God! The idea that she once got off to Burt Reynolds’ mustachioed mug would be too much for me to handle. But we know Burt, Mark Harmon (who?), and other ’70s and ’80s studs graced the covers of Playgirl during the mag’s hey-day and they’re…

Hilarious New Blog Alert: Daily Urban Legend

I’ve never told anyone this, but there’s a good chance Jim Morrison, you know, from the band the Doors, could be my father. My mom was working at a head shop in the late-’60s when Jimmy (that’s what she called him) came in and bought a year’s worth of incense. It was basically love at…

Hilarious Blog Alert: WTForever21

The white leopard-print leggings? The furry pink vest? The sequined belt? Yup, every WTF item in my closet is from Forever 21. But the store’s so inexpensive, can you say no to a lime green bra and panties set covered in spikes?! (OK, I made that last one up. But they probably sell it.) The…
