Former MTV VJ Dave Holmes Is Not Abusing Azealia Banks, Mmmkay?

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…

We Can’t Wrap Our Minds Around The Brant Brothers, So Someone Else Is Doing It For Us

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…

For The “Project Runway” Contestant In All Of Us: Kors Metaphors

Ever since we stopped watching “Project Runway” because it was moved to Lifetime and we couldn’t be bothered to figure out what channel that was (until “Liz & Dick” aired last night, that is), we’ve missed Michael Kors. Unlike, say, “X-Factor”‘s Britters Spears, who thinks that everything is “amazing,” Kors has a spot-on assessment or…

All Hail The Celebrity Kingdom

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…

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’s Burn Book” would have to say about the news. As you can see from…

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…

Meet your new Cheese People: This is Nic Cage Cats. Because nothing goes together like fat cats and Nic Cage’s expansive range of facial expressions. Seriously, is there anything more frightening/amazing than this? One more after the jump!

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 of my…

Tumblr Blog Of The Day: Bon Iver Erotic Stories

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. This blog is hilarious because, as Julie explains, sex with Bon Iver would probably be the worst. “The…

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 as skinny…

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 new universe.

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. The site’s uncanny ability to perfectly combine “SBTB” screen shots with Kanye lyric…

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 in Justin

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 for Frisky posts, breaking…

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 they’re…

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 isn’t working…
