Two Ladies If By Sea

Yes, you are correct. Only ladies aboard this ship. Just one of many compelling images on my favorite blog of the day, F#@k Yeah, Gay Vintage. [F#@k Yeah, Gay Vintage]…

Terrible Food Photographed Terribly

Ever pick up an old cookbook and marvel at how unappetizing all the recipes are? Aspic? Cold cuts and canned fruit? Maraschino cherries and boiled hot dogs? The Flickr group “Gee, That Food Looks Terrible” aims to catalog some of the truly disgusting food from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Like this broiled ham and…

Get Your Rocks Off With Passive Aggressive Panda

I’ve been having a little too much fun looking at the new blog, Passive Aggressive Panda. Remind you of anyone you know? Yeah, me too. Is it wrong to wish that I could take PA Panda with me to parties just so I could watch? Or maybe tell it what to say when I’m feeling…

Money 101: 11 Personal Finance Reads To Change Your Life

In finance, there’s a canon that everyone on Wall Street has read: Benjamin Graham, Adam Smith, and Robert Schiller. But no canon exists for personal finance. In fact, most personal finance books are a frustrating waste of time and money. From Suze Orman’s factually incorrect information to Jim Cramer’s super-caffeinated hysteria, it’s a sad field…

Pinups. Period.

A new blog, Menstrual Pinups, features pictures of ’40s and ’50s-style pinups who are having a surprise visit from Aunt Flo to go with their “oopsie” expressions. You mean women in the olden days got their periods? Say what?! Not that there’s anything wrong with a little menstrual blood for a cheap laugh, but thi…

Ridiculous New Blog: Hungover Owls

The new blog Hungover Owls is exactly the kind of pure silliness I live for. It features pictures of owls looking kind of busted, as if they’d had a wild night of boozing, and, as a bonus, we see their ridiculous morning-after thought bubble. Now that I think about it, owls always look kind of…

Divorce 2.0: Blogging The Whole Thing

It’s the age-old story. Boy meets girl. Boy marries girl and has two kids with her. Girl starts a blog. Boy starts a blog.

Boy and girl get divorced. Boy and girl join together to write a blog about what it’s like to be divorced parents living within walking distance of one another i…

Awful Library Books For Men And Boys

History can be hilarious! Consider words with meanings that have changed over time (remember when “gay” meant happy, like “Grandmother is so gay”?), sexist advertisements that could elicit modern-day lawsuits and library books that now seem grossly inappropriate.

As luck would have it, Michigan librarians Holly Hibner and Mary Kelly discovered that the latter…

Pete Campbell’s Bitchface For Your Pleasure

Wednesday is one of the saddest days of the week because it’s already been three days since a new “Mad Men” episode aired and we still have four more days to go until the next one. But, fear not, my friends, we have blogs to fill the lonely days between Sundays and remind us why…

The Daily Ovulation: “Mila’s Daydreams” Is The Cutest Baby Blog, Um, Ever

Adele is on maternity leave following the birth of her daughter Mila. During Mila’s naps, Adele likes to imagine what her baby girl might be dreaming about and then captures it in photographs like the one above. Cannot. Stop. Cooing. Jessica says it looks like hipster Anne Geddes on crack, but I think it’s straight-u…

A Blog Called “Cute Boys With Cupcakes”—Need We Say More?

It is a proven fact that if you take two already cute things, combine them, and put them on the internet, that women will have spontaneous squeal-gasms and probably land you a book deal. Take for example: Puppies and babies, Hello Kitty and miniature objects, singing toddlers and Beyoncé, Obama and children. To that end,…

Funny New Blog: “Catalog Living” Captions The Absurdity Of Home Catalogs

I am a complete catalog whore. I love the styling of the clothes in the J.Crew catalog, the ramshackle, shabby chic-ness of the Anthropologie catalog, and the total randomness of some of the furniture placements in the CB2 and West Elm catalogs. Someone has taken that obsession a step further and has imagined the live…

Are Ladyblogs Like The Frisky Bad For Women?

We love a lot of stuff here at The Frisky — shoe porn, hunky photos of Taylor Lautner — but what we love most are the ladies. Any old news outlet, like ABC or The New York Times, will tell you about the Gulf oil spill or Supreme Court confirmation hearings. But you know if…

Check This Out: Girls Of eBay Blog

Here’s one to add to your “procrastination” bookmarks tab: a photo blog called Girls of eBay. The name pretty much says it all—there, you’ll find snaps taken from actual eBay sales with cute ladies modeling the merch. For the most part, Girls of eBay falls in the fashion blog category, largely showing off hipster kid…

Dancing Alone To “Pony”

A new blog, Dancing Alone to Pony, is bringing back a ’90s R&B song in a big way. Do you remember Ginuwine’s super sexual song “Pony”? Of course you do. The lyrics are pretty darn grind-worthy—there’s a bit about riding a pony … and I don’t think he means a baby horse. Blogger A.

Check This Out: Hipsters Have To Pee Blog

In need of a little Friday distraction? Us too. That’s why we’re entertaining ourselves with a hilarious Tumblr blog called Hipsters Have to Pee. The site re-blogs lookbook pics and sources street style and fashion spreads for models/posers/hipsters bent into weird shapes. Ever notice how they always do that awkward legs-together, shoulders slumped forward thing?

Fun New Blog Features Ugly Ducklings Who Became Swans

One of my most favorite pastimes is looking at awkward photos, especially of friends and loved ones. If they’re nice about it, I’ll even share my pics from 5th grade, when I wore an off-the-shoulder peasant top, frosted lipstick, and had big bangs. Fun stuff. I think the best awks pics I’ve seen are of…

Accidental Penis: Site Devoted To The Unintentionally Phallic

Got a bad case of the Mondays? I know what you need! You need the Accidental Penis. Accidental Penis, unlike the deliberate penis you were perhaps lucky enough to get over the weekend, is a Tumblr blog devoted to all things that unintentionally look like wangs. While these photos are pretty SFW, you may want…
