I joined Tinder last month at the insistence of my friends. Before I downloaded the app, I had no clue what it was, but listening to my buddies raving about it, you’d think it was the second coming of Facebook.
For guys who love looking at pictures of girls in bikinis and frivolously casting a split-second judgment on them (guys like me, I mean), it came pretty close to being the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Well, for a week or so anyway. Read more …
Forget Instagram! Vine is the new social media hot spot. Six second videos from all your best digital friends? Sign me up. As long as they’re interesting, that is. As a general rule of thumb in social media, no one wants to see mundane posts about your Friday night viewing of “Bridesmaids” or a rundown of what you had for breakfast. And that’s no different with Vine—in fact, there’s even more to consider when sharing live-action shots. In Vine’s short life, I’ve already seen all types of overshares—from a fork-to-mouth video to a toothbrushing/flossing supercut. If you want to come off cool and savvy – and don’t want to scare away potential love interests, you who you might be interested in dating, shy away from these Vine faux-pas … Keep reading »
I’ve decided to stop using Instagram. It only just occurred to me that maybe I don’t want people to see where I am and who I’m with at that exact moment. There are lots of other things you can use Instagram for, of course, and I can always take those photos and ‘gram ‘em later, but that loses the whole “Insta” part of it.
Why am I giving it up? I’ve gone through my feed and I see some friends and acquaintances who are not only taking a photo of where they are but have also “checked in,” and described their exact place within that location (like, “Partying at [cool club here] in the back room, like rockstars!”) One day I thought, “Wow, this has the potential to be really dangerous.” Then I thought about how when I’ve gone on vacation I’ve posted my vacation pics on Instagram, too. It’s almost like I’m saying, “I’m not home right now, I am clearly across the country at the moment, feel free to rob my apartment and steal my car.” Keep reading »
With every New Year comes a new round of technological gadgets that are supposed to make our lives easier. Not only do they usually do that, but after awhile someone realizes that on top of bringing us closer — communication wise — and making the world seem smaller, the aforementioned gadgets are actually really handy when it comes to pornography.
Whether you need a porn fix while you’re on-the-go, or you want to direct your own personal skin-flick, 2013 has some technology to help you do just that. Read more…
I’m weird. I’m very weird. I’m proud of how weird I am. You’re probably weird, too. I think everyone is weird in their own unique way. Like snowflakes. When I found out that there was a BellyButton app for my iPhone, my first reaction was, “I want it.” It does nothing but show pictures of belly buttons. That’s it. The iTunes store review of it says, “Pointless, bizarre, and strangely amusing.” That’s really all I’m looking for in an app. In life, really.
If belly buttons aren’t your thing, there’s a whole world of bizarre apps to entertain oddballs like you and me. I found a whole bunch of them just for us.
