I was reading with the TV on mute yesterday when I looked up and saw something mesmerizing: A slow-mo shot of a man using a giant saw to cut through a log. It turns out that the program I was watching was an airing of the Stihl Timbersports lumberjack competition, and apparently the man wasREAD MORE »

The gym is its own little microcosm of social norms and awkward moments. You’re not the only one who occasionally feels like a weirdo! If you’ve ever spent even a second on an elliptical, you’ve probably experienced a few of these cringey predicaments…

Today is Mariah Carey’s 45th birthday and it’s got me feeling emotions, specifically gratitude for all the wisdom about life and love that she has imparted through her music over. So in honor of Mimi’s big day, here are those bits of wisdom, accompanied by GIFs of Mariah at her most divalicious. READ MORE »

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’ve been to a dozen Pearl Jam shows, every single one of them a profound spiritual experience and the best day… READ MORE »

What better way to celebrate the momentous #NoShaveNovember than to honor all the guys out there for whom “not shaving” is a way of life? The answer: there is no better way. This is the best way.

While smooth-faced chaps and bald boyfriends are wonderful in their own right, this month isn’t about them. READ MORE »

It’s cold and flu season, which means all of Influenza’s horrible distant relatives will soon show up en masse: Chills, Fever, Sneezes, Sniffles (and yes, I’m aware they sound like cheesy eighties nicknames). Even if you’re one of the lucky ones who hasn’t yet fallen victim to the misery, living with a sick person can… READ MORE »

I will literally wait until the only food left in my house is one-half of a stale Ritz cracker before I force myself to go to the grocery store. If it’s not enough that you need a down jacket to walk through the frozen food aisle without getting hypothermia, there are about 80 other things… READ MORE »

A new iPhone app called PHHHOTO (created by a company called, not surprisingly, HYPERHYPER) turns your photos into instant GIFs. As you can see, even Diplo is into using it for selfies. When you take a photo through the app, it takes multiple pictures in a row and instantaneously forms a GIF from… READ MORE »

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.

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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,… READ MORE »

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.

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.

Forget retail therapy, I prefer to deal with stress by engaging in GIF therapy. It’s cheaper, faster and has a far longer-lasting effect than the high you get from a Sephora bender.
