As A Lay Frying: Your New Favorite Literary Donut Tumblr

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]…

Facemath: Making Celebrities Out Of Celebrities

I'm a tad bit frightened of the evil genius who came up with Facemath, a site devoted to showing how two celebrity faces combine to make a third face. For instance, if Bijou Phillips and Melinda Clarke (who played Julie Cooper on "The O.C.") made a baby, that baby would be Emma Stone. And if…

TomKat Divorce: What Does Suri’s Burn Book Have To Say?

When I first learned about Katie Holmes divorcing Tom Cruise, I wasn't particularly upset or curious about what I was going to eventually learn about Scientology should Katie ever talk. Instead, the only thought on my mind was what the Tumblr "Suri'…

Amy Poehler Reveals What Makes Will Arnett Cry

Amy Poeher, comedy goddess that she is, can't not say funny stuff at all times. During a recent talk at the 92nd Street Y, Poehler answered a few questions from Tumblr users, like "What makes Will Arnett cry?" and "What's the first time you remember making people laugh?" Also, Poehler recommends we all make out…

Yo, Relationship Advice Is Now Available On Tumblr

I feel a responsibility to let you know when I spend a stupid amount of time on any given Tumblr. Today, I have dedicated myself to Yo, Should I Dump This Asshole? It's pretty self explanatory: people ask if they should dump the asshole they're dating and Yo responds. I've compiled a few…

What happens when you allow your imagination to fantasize about soulfully smug indie singer songwriter Bon Iver? The perfectly twee -- heirloom tomatoes and spiderwebs! -- erotic snippets compiled on the just launched "Bon Iver Erotic Stories" blog.

Pinterest Bans Pro-Anorexia And Thinsporation Material

Our favorite new Internet timewaster, Pinterest has in recent weeks become a haven for online pro-anorexia and eating disorder communities. Drawn to the site's image-heavy, community-oriented style, thinsporation posters have recently flooded the site, posting pictures of jutting hips, emaciated models and concave bellies, emblazoned with pro-ana slogans like "nothing tastes as good…

One Tiny Hand Is All It Takes To Change The World

Well, that's all it takes to change my world, at least.  The Tumblr blog, One Tiny Hand, is one tiny step for hands, one giant leap for mankind. Amelia alerted me to its existence this morning and I feel like Neil Armstrong when he first set foot on the moon. It's a whole…

When Kanye West Meets “Saved By The Bell,” A-Comin’ Through The Rye

Kanye West's histrionic lyrics and "Saved By the Bell"'s moronic episodes; two things you'd never thought see mesh. And yet! The genius behind the new site, Kanye'd By the Bell manages to find striking parallels between the show and the controversial rapper.

Fun Tumblr Alert: Teenage Mutant Ninja Noses

I've wasted too much time today scrolling through my new favorite Tumblr, Teenage Mutant Ninja Noses. "God is the artist. I just find the Ninja Turtle in his work," says Simon Fletcher, the creative force behind the site. Although, I think he is too humble. It takes artistry to find the Ninja Turtle i…

The Frisky Has A Tumblr!

The Frisky has a Tumblr, y'all! No, we're not embarrassingly late to the party on this one — we've always had a Tumblr but we just never used it. But for the past month we've been filling it up with goodies and we're ready to debut again. Follow us at TheFrisky.Tumblr.com…

Was Your Dad An Original Hipster?

A few weeks ago, my brother and I were looking at old family pictures and we came across a photo of my dad in the '70s. He was wearing giant Terry Richardson-style glasses, short shorts, some kind of subversive message T-shirt, and rocking a full beard. We looked at each other, and I whispered, "Oh…

Let Them Eat Beefcake!

My mom never had a collection of Playgirl magazines. Thank God! The idea that she once got off to Burt Reynolds' mustachioed mug would be too much for me to handle. But we know Burt, Mark Harmon (who?), and other '70s and '80s studs graced the covers of Playgirl during the mag's hey-day and…

This Is Why He Dumped You?

Another day, another Tumblr. How long before it gets a book deal? Who knows. The latest entrant is the confession-themed That's Why I Dumped You. Most of the time, when you dump someone or you get dumped, you don't tell the truth about why it happened. "It's not me, it's you." "This just…

First Google, Now Tumblr Also Aids Fashion Game

While Google was feting its new shopping website (Boutiques.com) with acrobats and celebs like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Tumblr was playing host to a fashion launch. "Of a Kind" is the first e-commerce-type site of its kind to use the blogging service as their online platform. A sort of blog-cum-shop, the store rotate…

Cheese People Are Among Us

Is your cheese aggressive and talented? Does your cheese occasionally hang out with Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez? Does you cheese have a sordid past with Madonna and an aversion to paparazzi? Then you're probably eating "Parmasean Penn." Penn is just one of several rather disturbing but incredibly accurate "Cheese People" found on the new Cheese…

F**k Yeah, Ryan Gosling

We've posted about amazing Tumblr blogs that we love before, but I have a new favorite that's obviously a little particular to my tastes. F*ck Yeah! Ryan Gosling posts random photos of my hunk of burning love with hilarious smooth come-ons like, "Hey girl, I heard you like beards so I grew…
