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 lyrics is almost frightening. More “Kanye’d By The Bell”s after the jump. [Kanye'd By the Bell] Keep reading »
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 Bieber’s nose. (See a few more after the jump!) [Teenage Mutant Ninja Noses] Keep reading »
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 news, adorable animal photos (including Amelia’s dog Lucca), pics of shoes and clothes we lust after, and … well … all the other crap you find out in Tumblr-land. Expect your productivity at work to plunge ever-downward. (Hey, don’t say we never did anything for you.) Keep reading »
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 my god. Was our dad the first hipster?” My brother quickly filed the picture away, saying, “We can’t let the government know about this.”
According to an awesome new Tumblr, Dads: The Original Hipsters, my dad’s not the only one. From bearded beer-brewers to deep V-neck wearers, the baby boomer generation was chock full of hipsters who had no idea they were hipsters. Was your dad one of them? Submit a photo and let the world know. Keep reading »
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 lovingly collected on a bitchin’ new — mostly-SFW — Tumblr called Let Them Eat Beefcake. As mesmerizing as those cheesy ‘staches are, I love the articles touted on the cover of the 1977 “Special Valentine’s Issue,” like “The 60-Second Period” and “The Boy-Rapist Next Door.” Beefcakes, like cheesy reading, truly never go out of style! (P.S. Do you think, 20 years from now, our daughters will be wondering what we saw in Levi Johnston?) [Let Them Eat Beefcake Tumblr] Keep reading »
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 out.” “I don’t know.” In reality, there’s always an answer behind the BS, and That’s Why I Dumped You has them. Here, men and women can confess the real reasons why you got dumped. From “You were 47 with two 17 year old kids, and I was 28 living in a different state” to “Sex involves both of us moving,” the site offers interesting insight into relationships breakups. [That's Why I Dumped You] Keep reading »
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 rotates features on new and up-and-coming designers, both selling their wares and promoting them through blogging, or “storytelling” as they put it. For fashion-inclined Tumblr users, this lets them automatically see updates in their feed, which is a great way to put products on an audience’s radar.
It seems that increasingly the tech community is becoming fashion- and e-commerce-oriented. Think we can expect this wave of style technology innovations to continue? [Of a Kind] Keep reading »
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 People site, including Condocheeza Rice and Pepper Jack White. [Cheese People] Keep reading »
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 one last night,” “Hey girl, I heard you like songs so I wrote you one,” and “Hey girl, when I tackle some body I think I’m giving you the biggest hug ever.” The genius behind the blog THAT I SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT OF, also posts for F*ck Yeah! Anne Hathaway, which is funny, but not nearly as sexy. Keep reading »
Tumblr is the awesome blogging platform out there right now. Unlike Typepad or Blogger, you don’t need to know a lick of HTML to post thoughts or images onto your own blog from your computer or phone. Best of all, it also allows you to follow other Tumblr bloggers via your dashboard, similar to the way you’d follow websites you like via an RSS feed. Even if you just want a place to post your favorite photos for friends and family to see, or compile favorite quotes, Tumblr makes it idiot proof, and the more bloggers you follow on your dashboard, the more cool information, pictures, and articles you’ll discover. After the jump, some of my favorite Tumblogs to follow.
