BBC Radio 1 personality Chris Stark, while technically unrelated to us, upholds his surname with honor, in one of the most terrific interviews we’ve ever seen. Read More
We all know Edison invented the light bulb (among other things) but who knew he also made one of the earliest, “hilarious” (for the time) cat videos?! Read More
Photographer Danny Evans has redefined what it means to Photoshop celebrities, using the tool to make them look worse (and from the Midwest). We can’t get enough of chubby Kanye and Kim, even though their baby would still probably be cute (and obese). See some of our other favorites after the jump.
There are two levels of laziness when it comes to taking out the trash. The first includes throwing rubbish on top of an already-full trashcan to create a tower of garbage. Shameful! The second–and more severe–is going so far as to carefully balance receptacle items on top of said tower (and then exiting the scene swiftly before all topples to the floor). Despicable! Thankfully, our Associate Creative Director Nancy has developed an ingenious way to keep our trash cans in check. No, not a trash incinerating robot…FLOWCHARTS!!
Have you been searching far and wide for a way to cat-ify your images quickly and efficiently? Well look no further, Cat Effects, the free iphone app, allows you to stamp cats of all sizes and breeds–from kittens to lions!–on your photos…for free! A 99 cent upgrade gets you more kitties (replace word for dirty joke here), and we’re seriously considering it. However, we were able to create some outstanding photos with the free felines (hit the jump). Granted, it can’t compare to the actual image of our office (above) that was taken with real live cougars. MEOW!
As much as we hate the idea of invincible mice who could overtake New York (as if they haven’t already), this ad is pretty awesome.
This photoblog makes us even more jealous that we don’t have an office dog, especially an agreeable one like Maddie the Coonhound who we could perch on basically anything. More after the jump!
What happens when a curious cat falls for a flashlight on a waxed floor? Exactly what you think would happen, but it’s nonetheless entertaining and slightly sad (worth the 13 seconds it will take of your life).
We appreciate anything that helps us procrastinate if it is both A) free and B) entertaining, and bonus points if it can fall under the guise of “productivity” / “learning.” Enter Kern Type, the site that makes a game out of adjusting a word’s kerning (spacing between letters). As OCD type geeks, we love this, and even more so since we can “justify” (pun intended) our playing it as “professional development.” Our only qualm is that there aren’t more levels so we can
waste more time learn more!
We’ve unfortunately never come across real unicorn poo (we hear the elusive creatures steer clear of Manhattan), but luckily Instructables user Kristylynn84 has and has been able to recreate the magical droppings in the form of terrifically colorful and delicious-looking cookies. While you may never be able to catch or, much less, see a unicorn, we’re guessing a good amount of the artificial food coloring in these will stay with you forever! More photos and links to instructions after the jump.
We have a longstanding belief that cats are conspiring to take over the world…and will in due time. Case in point: they are now infiltrating a once incongruous realm, makeup. French label Paul & Joe Beauté has a new cosmetics collection that features cat-embossed eye shadows and lipsticks shaped like kitties wearing mini top hats. Top hats! It seems the felines are slowly gaining control…under the clever guise of cute and novel accoutrements…
Problem: How to make your bottled water stand out from the (overcrowded) crowd? Solution (obvious): Exercise bikes, women, and a neon male stripper…
