I don't see any boots with fur.

A video to make you say "What the fuck?" and "What's the number of CPS?" and "Wow, that kid's a pretty good dancer."

Iron & Wine and Calexico

So. This is just a song I really love. It's not really video. Just a great song. You should listen and love it, too.

Man, I miss the 80s and 90s sometimes. Here's another great reason why. I wish my mother would have let me get lasers. But no, always a boring gray background for this chica.

Laser Portraits

Let's see what's in Mr. Rudd's soul...

I just laughed so hard the mascara ran, and it sounded like I was sobbing...

Slurp? Ew.

I never was into comics growing up, but as I've gotten older, I've read a lot more online. Not like Batman and shit (although, if you like those, that's totally cool, whatever.). 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.

Well. That was awkward.

You know when you go over to a friend's house, and over the mantle there's one of those weird Olan Mills portraits of the kids wearing matching outfits and matching FML smiles? And then you wonder what parent in their right mind actually cherishes these works of fugly?

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.

Check it: Awkward Family Photos


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.

Let's celebrate!

Party Cat!

An amusing comic about a cat addicted to partying. It's appropriate for this weekend as it is my sister's wedding, and that appears to be what these few days are all about.

Thanks, Natalie!

Join a CULT!

We've all seen Snuggies parodies. This may be the funniest one, though.

Dinosaur Comics

Oh, what the hell. Let's keep the ball rolling this week with comics that I read every day.

Dinosaur Comics is great every day. Admittedly some days more than others, of course. Today's contains some very good advice. Heed it.

tada is a really weird word; the more i stare at it the more i am convinced

Seriously, Justin Timberlake can go on SNL any time he wants. He's really very funny...


xkcd is classic. Of course. If you don't read it, then you fail.

Two headed boy.

Tracy and Rachel have both sent me information about this. Amanda Palmer (of The Dresden Dolls) is creating a play? musical? based around Neutral Milk Hotel's In an Aeroplane over the Sea. It looks kind of wonderful.

NPR did a thing about it, which can be found here.
Thomas Allen's Book Art Photography

Take some pulp novels, an x-acto knife, a good camera, and you get these fabulous photographs. I would love to see how they look in real life.

Thanks, Natalie

This are terribly corny but also more amusing than they have any right to be.

"The silly fucking hen"

Dear Cute Animals-
You are inappropriately amusing and adorable.
This guy agrees. And he has made cataloging class this semester a lot better by distracting us with his amusing posts.

Fuck You, Penguin

Passion Pit

Yes. Dance the end of the semester away.
I suppose this isn't for the younger readers, but you know, it's the Internet, and I don't discriminate, so make your own decision based on the name of this website.

Awkward Boners

Thanks, Kate

Sarsgaard SARS guard

Abby hasn't seen this yet, and it's an old favorite line from college, so I feel it should be shared. Plus, it's kinda timely:

Meat Cards

Who needs a traditional business card?

Try a Meat Card!

Thanks, Chris.

Everyone hates Sarah Palin!

I am a member of the fairly active LiveJournal community, b0st0n, which is generally good for humor and conversation, etc. I think one of yesterday's posts could be one of the top ten threads I've seen on the community ever.

Who wants Sarah Palin in 2012?

While FAIL Blog is always pretty hilarious, recently the videos have gotten a lot better. There is, for instance, this gem.

If you've somehow missed it, find the rest of the FAIL blog site here.

"my best friend tried to rape me with a pineapple"

I realize that this has already made the rounds, but just in case you somehow missed it, you need to be enlightened.

A timely suggestion

Do I Have Swine Flu?

I laugh every time I even think of this site.

After the reaction Natalie, Marta, and I got while watching this during our class break yesterday, I think this is a good way to start off this blog.

And, no, I have no idea what's going on either.
