This Tumblr Celebrates Teenage Bedrooms On Screen

Do you remember your teenage bedroom? I do. It was the jam. First of all, the stucco walls were painted what my mother considered a “hideous” shade of pinkish-coral, but I thought it was perfect. My walls were plastered with rock posters (Pearl Jam, obvi) and snapshots of me and my besties, the bottom drawer…

Female Actors Fight Back: “Some Lady Parts” Tumblr Documents Sexist Casting Calls

Actor Katrina Day has collected a series of sexist casting breakdowns for her not-haha-funny new Tumblr Some Lady Parts. Some of these notices read like Craigslist personal ads: “Seeking: Hot Blonde girl … Blonde hair …. classic hot girl.” Others aim for highbrow, but end up unrealistic and porn-y: “Seeking: Ultimate fantasy woman of a…

“Drunk J.Crew” Is Your New Favorite Tumblr

Some genius with a Tumblr account has astutely observed that all the models in the J.Crew catalogue look mildly drunk off their asses. Drunk J. Crew puts words in the mouths of those tipsy ladies, and the end result is perfect. It’s hard not to wonder why it took us all so many years of shopping…

The macabre Tumblr Jerry Seinfeld’s Skeleton uses a sandbox game called Garry’s Mod to recreate the greatest moments of “Seinfeld” – performed only by Jerry’s digital skeleton.

New Favorite Tumblr: Sad Desk Lunch

Do you eat lunch at your desk? I used to all the time, and still do occasionally. Sometimes, while answering emails and trying not to get bits of tuna salad all over my keyboard, I’d look down at my tupperware-strewn workspace, and the bag of vending machine peanut m&m’s I was saving for dessert, and…

The Internet has been abuzz lately with Tumblr blogs like I, Too, Am Harvard and I, Too, Am Oxford, which focused on the experiences of students of color amongst the mostly white populations at elite universities.

Ever Wondered What Marilyn Monroe Would Look Like With A Neck Tattoo?

Seattle artist Cheyenne Randall is the mastermind behind my new favorite Tumblr, Shopped Tattoos, where he adorns legendary photos with amazingly realistic body art.

Lindsay Bottos is a 21-year-old student who posts a lot of selfies on Tumblr. In this new project, which she has shared on Buzzfeed, Lindsay posts actual cruel, slut-shaming and even violent anonymous comments that she receives on Tumblr.

Divorced Woman Charts The Pain Of A Breakup … Literally

Everyone has their own special way of trying to cope with a breakup. It’s a long, fruitless process of trying to find some way, any way to break the pain into manageable bites until it’s small enough to swallow.
