Have you seen Google Glass yet? It’s the impossibly expensive ($1,500) new toy Google recently unleashed. What it is: An attachment one affixes to your eyeglasses that allows you to snap photos and record video with the blink of an eye. A sort of creepy, futuristic “Jetsons”-type gadget, Google Glass is basically like affixing a computer to your head. You can watch videos, record videos, take photos and browse the web, via the glass.
Consequently, nerdy guys love it. And because it’s currently only available on a limited basis, and just to the very connected, nerdy white Silicon Valley guys have been caught wearing their Google Glasses out on the town — and they look pretty funny. And thankfully, White Men Wearing Google Glass, a Tumblr devoted to chronicling the travels and travails of white guys with Google Glass affixed to their glasses, captures it all. Keep reading »
You would think we’ve perhaps come to the end of cat meme possibilities, but no, every time you think the Internet’s run out of cat ideas, someone goes and creates something like “Sports Balls Replaced With Cats,” a Tumblr which is dedicated to just that — taking pictures of athletes and Photoshopping kittens into their arms. Beefy athletic dudes cradling kittens? Yes, please. [Sports Balls Replaced By Cats]
Plus-size clothing has made some major strides in the past few years, but overall, its bad reputation is still well deserved: most brands for larger women seem to specialize in bat-wing blouses in garish floral prints and tragically pleated elastic waist jeans. Enter a Tumblr blog called “WTF, Plus Size Clothing Manufacturers?”, a collection of “the most heinous offenders” in the plus-size fashion world. A quick scroll-through will cause anyone who’s ever shopped in the plus-size department to laugh, nod with recognition, and possibly cry. Submissions are welcome, so next time you stumble across a leopard print drawstring maxi skirt in the super clearance section of your favorite plus-size website, feel free to share the link and call them out.

“Downton Abbey” finally returned to the American airwaves last night (have you checked out all the gossip in the latest issue of Downton Glamour?), and while many DA fans are having mixed feelings about season three, a Tumblr blog called “Edith With Googly Eyes” is getting rave reviews. As a hardcore Edith fan, I felt a little bad for laughing so hard, but once you scroll through a few photos, you’ll see it’s impossible not to. [via Gawker]
Today In We Should Be Careful About Posting Other People’s Photos On The Internet Accusing Them Of Shit They May Not Have Actually Done:
Former MTV VJ Dave Holmes took to his Tumblr blog today to clear something up: he is not the Dave Holmes who is managing/dating Azealia Banks and allegedly tried to rough her up.
So kindly please stop reposting pictures of him on the Internet accusing him of being a domestic abuser, okay? Keep reading »
If you’ve yet to hear of the brothers Brant, you are very fortunate. You are also not a subscriber and/or reader of Vanity Fair, where they were profiled back in September. That story’s title says it all: “Little Lord Flauntleroys.” Peter, 18, and Harry, 15, are the
split-manifestation antichrist sons of publishing mogul Peter Brant Sr. and supermodel Stephanie Seymour (and yes, you may recognize Peter from that ill-advised beachside photo in which he is both groping and smooching his mother on the lips), and frankly they are beyond words. They’re kind of like the gay Hilton sisters except worse in that they’re both fucking terrible (Nicky is, after all, pretty inoffensive), but unlike the Hilton sisters they are a) “high society” and b) one of them Tweeted about assassinating the president. Seriously. Alas, the Brant brothers have reached their zeitgeist saturation point: a satirical Tumblr now exists in their name. Keep reading »
Sometimes I discover a Tumblr so genius that I get jealous, bordering on hostile, that I didn’t think of it myself. Today’s find is The Celebrity Kingdom, which expertly morphs celebrities and their spirit animals. Dammit! Why didn’t I think of that? Seriously, Goose Vilanch is my inspiration for the day. Well, Goose Vilanch and those five cups of coffee I pounded. Hey, whatever keeps you motivated. Click onward to see a few more of my favorite animal/celeb hybrids.
The world needs more blogs pairing pictures of donuts with literary quotes, I always say. As I Lay Frying — Faulkner joke! — is just what us biblio-donut-philes need. [As I Lay Frying]
