Move... bitch... No, really, move you dog.

Let's go over what is wrong with this video of a cat and dog "playing:"

1. There is a Roomba.

2. There is a cat on said Roomba.

3. The cat swipes at the dog on multiple occasions.

4. The dog is wearing a sweater.

5. With one big argyle print on it.

6. The soundtrack is Ludacris.

7. The older white woman taking the video appears to be referencing it during the "fun."

See what I mean:

Ye Olde Laptop

Man, pulling an all-nighter makes one find all sorts of things funny, but I think this might actually be funny in a non-sleep deprived state.

I guess this is why no one uses laptops anymore, right? They're just not practical for college?

Beast v. Batman

I may have been one of the only people I know who really enjoyed Where the Wild Things Are - and everyone else can suck it, quite simply. Admission: I cried through the entire thing. It was one of those movies.

However, I can see why some people might feel that it could have used some more badassery. The people who created the following clip seem to have gotten that right.

What if Max got a Batman costume instead of the one he did?



Thanks, Raph!

Worst Birthday Ever?

Joseph Ducreux is B.A.

I feel like sometimes we forget that there have been badass gangstas forever. The Internet remembers sometimes, though. And the brilliant people who have created the memes around Joseph Ducreux's fabulous portrait from 1793 have done a wonderful job of it.

I like mean people.

No, really.

I feel like this site could be 100% guido, but no - they mix it up. Bring all sorts of idiots who like to make the duckface.

What, you may ask, is a duckface?

Oh, my goodness. That is why I am here.

Here are all KINDS of duckfaces!

This isn't funny.

Sometimes I feel like maybe I worry too much about drunk people who take the subway alone. I no longer feel that way.

Archives Stuff on Twitter

Time for some shameless self-promotion!

I've created list on Twitter focusing on archives. The only criteria to be added to the list is that the ... tweeter? ... talk about archives related topics about 75% of the time. If you are interested, you should follow it and learn all about what's going on around the world in archives.

Also, I'm always looking for suggestions on who should be added to the list!

Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele

"Magnificent" is not an understatement.

I feel like most of us have heard "Meet Me in the Garden" by this point, but "Howard" isn't played quite as much. And the video is way funnier. So, I present to you - "Howard" by Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele

9/11

A warning - this article is about 9/11, specifically the photograph of the Falling Man, which was in newspapers on 9/12 but pretty much disappeared after that.

Esquire considers it one of its best articles ever. I would have to agree.

If you don't want to cry by the end of it, I'll be seriously surprised.

Justin James Reed

Photography is kind of my kick right now. So, here we have a photographer named Justin James Reed. His "Paradise" series sucked me right in, especially "Southampton, New Jersey," 2008.

You can see some of his work here at his website.

More insight can be found at his blog.

United States of America

Another photographic project for you to peruse. Here photographers from every state have chosen different shots to represent the categories people, landscape, industry, and habitat.

Iiiiii just wanna fly...

Okay, so I'm a little bit younger than most of the people writing for this blog, but I still totally appreciate it - cos I listened to a lot of the same stuff in middle school. I guess a lot of people look back on what they listened to when they were younger and question that decision. And some of these people do that. But most of them get why this music was important to them - and why it still is. I'm a sucker for nostalgia, yes, but this isn't so much about nostalgia, I guess - it's more about understanding your past. Which, oh, I don't know, maybe it's the same thing. The point is - remember these songs? Remember ones that aren't on there that were important to you? It's a good read - slice of life, you know? This American Life without Ira Glass breathily narrating a few months of your high school years.

I have no idea what I'm on about at this point. I need to get back to studying.

Here, look at Songs from High School.

PAPA!

I love my Dad. Chances are you love yours, too. I'm sorry if something terrible happened in your youth to make you not love your father.

But for those of us who do love our fathers, it's probably because he can be kind of goofy. It makes up for those other slightly annoying fatherly traits.

There is a blog dedicated to funny fathers. It's in its infancy, so forgive the lack of posts, but if you have something to contribute, please do. I feel like this blog could easily achieve greatness.

Then MyLifeIsAverage is probably for you. These are happier versions of FML! Things happen, people feel good about them, and they want to share.

Personally, I think the site should be called MyLifeIsAboveAverageRightNow or something, but I guess that's a little wordy.

A few friends already listened to this podcast, so no, I didn't really discover it. However, I bet you haven't heard it yet. Therefore, check it out.

It's called Uhh Yeah Dude. It's two dudes sitting around talking about nothing. No, seriously.

But hot damn if they aren't funny.

You will also start saying things like, "wanky wank," "slow boning," etc. These are all very very useful phrases.

If you live in NYC, they're doing a party show thing in October, which you should go to.

superbomba!

I found this site today via Sorry I Missed Your Party.

superbomba! is a collection of amazing vintage photos (vintage being really anything over fifteen years old... Doubt anything is really later than 1990ish). It seems that the site began as a pairing of found photos with music - which can be downloaded on the first couple pages. Not all the images are wonderful, but the vast majority are. They are humorous, touching, slices of life, boring in some cases, and always insightful. I got hooked immediately and ended up going back to the beginning. I hope you'll want to do the same.

The Great Search Engine Debate

These are things you start to find interesting when in library school - embarrassing but true:

This isn't funny, but I think proof that search engines are kind of a crapshoot. Here is a website where you can blindly search Google, Bing, and Yahoo and then vote for which result you think best matches your query. You might be surprised at what you find. I chose each search engine once. Others are leaning towards Yahoo and others towards Google. The point here is - while Google might make up 70% of the market share or something like that, is there really a reason for it? Is it really that much better?

Try for yourself at Blind Search.

And if you want to read more, here's an article about it from The Washington Post.

Don't be such a prude...

Well. It might be because I've been on the radio for the past ten hours, but I think it's probably more just that I have a rather crass sense of humor sometimes - - - - - - or always. But here is a great blog. It's called Things That Look Like Cock n Balls. Obviously highbrow. The guys from The Bugle like it, and you will, too.

Without further ado, go look at some pictures of items that look like penises at Things That Look Like Cock n Balls.

Elbow

I actually have NO idea how I've never seen this before.

There doesn't seem to be any way to embed it, so brief description, then a link.

In 2004 (I think) one of my favorite bands - Elbow - did a BBC Radio 1 session and recorded a quirky version of Destiny Child's "Independent Woman." They occasionally break it out in concert for a couple seconds (if I remember correctly). Apparently, Joel Veitch of rathergood.com took their version and made it into a video featuring some Northern Kitties playing instruments and smoking cigarettes. First - this is a great cover. Secondly - the animation fits almost perfectly. It's funny but played on a loop so don't expect it to stop - ever...

Without further ado...

More funny dailies like QC, Dino Comics, xkcd, etc. And I also seem to know more people who are into comics and draw them and stuff. So, without further ado, Phil twittered, tweeted, whatever, this one today, and I think you should all take a look.

There's a website dedicated to the immortalization of those lovely portraits. It's called Awkward Family Photos, and man oh man is it awkward.

BIRTHDAY CAKE EVERY DAY YESSSS

Let's continue with the party theme. LJ-user xiphias just posted this on the b0st0n community, and it looks like maybe the best thing ever? so I think you should all have it, too.

You know the Five Minute Microwave Cake recipe, right?

Get biggest microwave safe mug you've got, spray inside with cooking spray.

4 Tbl flour
4 Tbl sugar
2 Tbl unsweetened cocoa powder

Mix these together in the mug,

Stir in:
1 egg
3 Tbl milk
3 Tbl vegetable oil (oil is the ONE thing I don't always have on hand, so I often melt 3 Tbl butter; it works.)

Mix with a fork or something until more-or-less smooth.

Nuke for 3 minutes. It may well swell over the top of the mug; don't worry about it.

Let it cool for a few seconds, and either eat it out of the mug, or tip it out onto a plate.

If you've got these things in your pantry, you'll never be more than five minutes away from cake.


I have yet to try this, but if it actually works, we're all going to be living happily ever after.
