I Love You, But…

I still remember the day I realized my first love wasn’t perfect. We’d been together for about 2- 1/2 months and decided to go camping for the weekend. I wasn’t much of an outdoorsy person and ended up wearing, like, Keds on our long hike up to the campsite (which really wasn’t a campsite, but…

Web-Cam: We Heart Polaroids

And so does Jen, from Highland Park, CA. She's the photographer behind the amazing My Polaroid Blog, a site filled with ethereal, clean, and artsy Polaroid photos. Sigh. What's she going to do now that the film is being discontinued?

The Hairwash Photo Project

I’m Too Sexy For Insurance

What’s sexier than a security blanket? Pretty much everything. But that hasn’t stopped the insurance industry from trying to loosen its image. Sexy Insurance, a new networking site catering to insurance industry professionals, is giving MySpace a run for its edgy market share. Instead of Tom, they’ve got Sean, a self-proclaimed…

Email Order Baby Brides

While my Jewish mother would do almost anything to marry me off, apparently I should thank my lucky stars that she hasn’t put me up for sale! Although, I’m already past peak for this eBay-style site of teen brides -- MarryOurDaughter.com. On the page, parents advertise their young daughters and sell them through…

Who Doesn’t Love A Good Kiss?

I just stumbled upon the most adorable site called BestKisses.com which is just filled with pictures of people, animals, things, whatever, kissing. You can submit your own photo too and they may just put it up alongside photos of camels kissing, and babies and dads kissing, and couples kissing. Do you think they…
