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? Now it all makes sense—after those four PBRs of course they’d have to take a whiz.
So, please enjoy and have a good laugh. Just don’t pee yourself. [Hipsters Have to Pee via Fashion Indie]

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 my best friend when she was in middle school. Was there a reason why she wore a bolo tie in her 7th grade yearbook photo? Hours of laughter. Hours. A new blog, Before You Were Hot, documents the before and after of ugly ducklings becoming swans. Looking at awkwardly fug kids turn into hot adults is a good time guaranteed. Just trust me, you need to check it out. Some of my favorite fug-to-hottie transformations after the jump. [Urlesque] Keep reading »
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 to wait until you get home to peruse. A side glance from a co-worker could cause some raised eyebrows. [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Fact: The Frisky is an inspiration.
Evidence: Over a year ago, in April 2009, I made a Nerd Girl Porn slideshow of “hot guys reading.” Now there is a blog called just that and you can view it in all its glory here.
Downside: They didn’t give us any credit for discovering that an image of a dude reading a book could make someone all hot and bothered, but we’ll get over it. That said, I am going to go register HotGuysPumpingGas.com right now. Keep reading »
Meet Kevin, the hilarious dude behind the blog “My Ex-Wife’s Wedding Dress.” A few months ago, Kevin’s wife of 12 years left him. And when she packed up her stuff, she left something behind—her wedding dress. And so Kevin hatched a plan to come up with 101 uses for said wedding dress and document each one. So far, he’s used the dress as a grill cover, dental floss, gym towel, shoe polish rag, and dog toy. Amazingly, it’s stayed relatively intact and clean until his most recent post, when he shoved it in his car’s gas tank instead of a gas cap. (That’s what’s going on in the photo above.) Oh, but Kevin’s got many more ideas. He plans to use the dress as a dust cloth for painting, a mop, a pasta strainer, etc. By the time he gets to the 101st use, he hopes to have a book deal. Good luck, dude. [My Ex-Wife's Wedding Dress] Keep reading »
In case you were thinking about having kids anytime soon, this new blog S**t My Kids Ruined will make you think twice. This alternative form of birth control features the worst that can happen when little hellians go on a rampage. The path of destruction left by an angry or curious child is not always so cute. It kind of makes me want to apologize to my mom and dad. You were probably right about not going to sleep with gum in my mouth. It really does always end up in your hair. First up, this lovely little Suzy Homemaker was just doing a little light baking. Secret ingredient? Baby powder. Delish! After the jump, a few more of my favorite kiddie crime scenes.

To us Gen X ladies, Sassy was the ultimate teen magazine. Each issue left us feeling a little cooler, because we weren’t just in the know—we were in the know. And no one was more responsible for that feeling than editor Christina Kelly. Her columns “What Now” and “Cute Band Alert” were everything a 16-year-old, flannel-wearing girl wanted or needed. Plus, she wrote the mag’s infamous Kurt and Courtney cover story. The woman was idol-worthy.
It’s been four years since her last job as Editor-in-Chief at ELLEgirl magazine. Since then, her name has been missing from mastheads. But now she has joined the blogosphere—cheers!—with Fallen Princess, a site where she discusses everything from her love of “Glee” to her thoughts on being a mom. After the jump, The Frisky sits down and asks Christina a few questions. Keep reading »
Sure, the recession has hit us normal people hard. But no one, according to Fake Karl, has it quite as bad as the wealthy fashionistas and fashionistos out there. Karl has decided to take it upon himself to instruct the rich on “how to do things” so they can get by. Since all of us could use a refresher course on “things,” first up in Karl’s Guide To Doing Things For The Rich has a hilarious rundown on supermarkets. Here, a few basics:

We’re not ashamed to admit that we’re full-on street style
blog addicts. (Although, mainly out of jealousy of their impeccably-dressed subjects.) We’re noticing that the genre is moving to a different level after seeing real-style documentarians move to video platforms, which gives a whole new feeling to street style. We recently came across Vimeo user Jake Davis’s dreamy Test Shot videos, which offer a more poignant look at the featured person’s outfit through slow-mo close-ups and smooth beats. His short movies go beyond the aesthetics of style, and begin to talk more about the person behind the clothes, almost like a mini-narrative. Check it out! [Vimeo
