A Peanut Duck!

Normally I post websites with things that look like penises or the like.

And I guess this still has the word "nuts" in it, so it's not entirely different...

Anyway - here's a website dedicated to items that look like ducks. DUCKS! Adorable!!! Peanuts, cucumbers, etc.!

This Peanut Looks like a Duck

...This got weirdly more sexual than I anticipated...

Thanks, Abby!

Who's got the spirit now?

It's a rainy day, and I'm in the library.

But it's also a Sunday during football season.

I BILLieve, even if play is already spotty in the first half.

This is a true story.

No, really.

Most reliable news source on the planet.

Thanks, Aaron!

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


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.

The Falling Man by Tom Junod

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.

Teen Girl Squad would love Mayer Hawthorne

This morning I'm listening to this Mayer Hawthorne song on repeat. When I say "on repeat," I mean I've listened to it about seven times already...

Also, I've been reminded that I do have a crush on EVERY BOY!!! High school/early college throwback!
(This is actually a true statement 95% of the time...)


But what is it???

This is so strange and so funny...

There is no reason for this website to exist, but I'm oh-so-happy it does!

Hot Chicks with Dogs with Boners

No, I am NOT joking.


Lo. Lee. Ta.

A sometimes worthy blog of music and art and other shit I don't care about:
Achtung, Baby!

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. There are so so many quality shots. (Although, obviously, some states are better than others...) And it really helps you appreciate the diversity of this nation.

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.


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.

That's Not Average.

Are you one of those people who (wrongly) think that FMyLife is too depressing?

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.

Who's an ass?

"So," you might say, "Are you a Democrat or a Republican, Marti?"

I will respond, "You should take a look at this website."

A few thoughts on Joe Wilson.

Awwww, who's a goofy lookin' guy?

Uhh Yeah Dude

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.

Check it out at their website, Uhh Yeah Dude.

That's fuuuuucked up...

Thanks, Tommy

More Pac-Man!

Earlier I posted a Pac-Man video, which I thought was pretty funny (and still do). However, that is not the only funny Pac-Man video around. Check out this gem from Michigan.

Thanks, Colleen

Sand Art

Well, this is true talent. Unlike so much of what we see.

Thanks, Amanda!
