10 Life Lessons Learned From The Spice Girls On The 18-Year Anniversary Of “Wannabe” (In GIFs)

Life Lessons We've Learned From the Spice Girls (In GIFs)

Eighteen years ago today, The Spice Girls put their stamp on the world by releasing “Wannabe.” It’s hard to believe I was just a little pigtailed eight-year-old at the time, but this song has remained one of my favorite jams and girl power anthems over the years, crowned as my karaoke song of choice. (And I know I’m not the only one who knows all the words to Mel B‘s rap verse to this song, so don’t kid yourselves.) The Spice Girls were more than just a girl band, and “Wannabe” was more than just a song. Girl Power is a way of life that I’m proud to say I still abide by, but that’s not the only thing they taught me. Check out these 10 life lessons we all learned from Baby, Posh, Ginger, Scary and Sporty Spice. Keep reading »

The Struggle Is Real: 10 Problematic People In Every Office (In GIFs!)

michael-scott

This morning, just like every other morning, I got into work and meandered over to the company Keurig in desperate need of coffee to find that, yet again, the last person to use the coffee machine didn’t refill the water. How hard is it to put the container under the sink for five seconds? For months we’ve been plagued with this problem thanks to lazy caffeine drinkers, and I have been seriously contemplating the installation of nanny cams to find the culprit(s). Maybe then we’d determine who’s guilty of some of these other workplace crimes.

std-main

We’ve all been there. You had a one night stand, engaged in spontaneous travel sex, or found out your significant other was a big, fat cheater, and soon after, something very suspect appeared on your nether regions looking like it may be an STD. Could that be a genital wart or is it just an ingrown hair? Is that razor burn or the start of a raging herpes outbreak? From the moment you make the scary discovery to the second you find out you’re a-ok, that, my friends, is what Hell feels like. More specifically, this is what that journey of panic feels like in GIFs… Keep reading »

A Shakespeare-To-GIF Translator Is Coming To The Interwebs And I Can’t Contain Myself

A Shakespeare-To-GIF Translator Is Coming To The Interwebs And I Can't Contain Myself

Two graduate students at the MIT Media Lab have created a research site that quantifies the emotional content of GIFs, and they hope that one day soon it will enable them to translate Shakespeare into GIF-speak. Travis Rich and Kevin Hu launched GIFGIF on March 3, and it’s a whole lot of fun. It’s so much fun, in fact, that it’s attracted an average 15,000 users per day so far, who are each asked upon visiting the homepage to choose which of two GIFs better expresses a certain emotion.

A Guide To A Happy Marriage According To Frank & Claire Underwood From "House Of Cards" (Spoiler Alert!)

It’s official. Frank and Claire Underwood are officially my favorite married couple currently on TV. “House of Cards”‘ calculating vice president (played by Kevin Spacey) and his powerful and beautiful wife (played by Robin Wright) are proof that the couple that lies, schemes and smokes together, stays together, by any means necessary.

By god, should I ever get married someday, please let my relationship be as committed and focused as this one. After all, the most successful and long lasting partnerships are between people who bring out the good best in each other. Here’s a guide to how to have a completely non-traditional, sexy and ruthless marriage just like Frank and Claire Underwood. (Be warned: this post contains spoilers about season two.) Keep reading »

The 7 Stages Of A Man Getting Sick

Right now, pretty much everyone I know is sick in bed with a cold, the flu, or some nasty stomach bug that turns your digestive system into mincemeat. Seriously, flu season is the worst.

Based on years of observations of brothers, dads, boyfriends, and friends, I’ve identified the 7 stages all sick men go through on their journey from first symptom back to wellness. They are as follows: Keep reading »

In Honor Of Eddie Vedder's 49th Birthday, Here Are 57 GIFs Of Pearl Jam's Frontman (Because I Couldn't Narrow Them Down!)

There are few things in life that make my chest seize and my stomach flutter with that inexplicable giddy feeling as much as Pearl Jam. My favorite band since I was 12 years old, I recently went to my 11th and 12th Pearl Jam shows, both of which were basically, like, profound spiritual experiences. The band has been around for over 20 years, fronted by the enigmatic Eddie Vedder, who turns 49 today. Oh, I’ll find a whole bunch of amazing GIFs of him. Maybe I can even find 49! I thought. And then an hour later, I had 91 GIFs sitting on my desktop. Oops. I managed to whittle them down to 57, but goddammit, I could not bring myself to discard another eight. So here you go. Fifty-seven Ed GIFs in honor of his 49th birthday. Keep reading »
