The top tumblogs of two thousand and ten

This post went live over on the vitaminwater canada blog yesterday and I wanted to share it here too because, well… I put a lot of thought into it.

Thoughts about cheese people and Tom Selleck and the early 1990′s. Wonderful Interwebbity thoughts.

I wanted to include hungover owls but that didn’t really fit the steez, what with all of the intoxicated forest creatures and such.

When Parents Text” took the number one spot on that list because it’s probably the most hilarious thing I’ve stumbled upon all month. In fact, that’s exactly why it did.

A late addition to the memeverse of 2010 , WPT was December’s darling for sure.

Parents and technology are hilar. I want to start a single topic blog called “When parents Tweet” so that I can post things like this from my Mom’s Tweet feed.

Unfortunately for my blog idea, I think she’s the only mom who actually Tweets and doesn’t use Facebook. Fortunately for me, I find this to be pretty damn cool.

I posted some of these “best of” images on my Tumblr the other day after it made me LITERALLY shoot water out of my nose. Word to the wise: don’t creep memeblogs and drink at the same time. “The kids are in the Cheerios now” is what did me in.

Bwahaha.

Damn you Autocorrect would obviously be on that list too if it weren’t so salty in the language department. Heck, it’d probably be number one!

Me: Hey Internet?
Internet: Yes, my child?
Me: I love you.
Internet: <3

Dear Students: Please masturbate elsewhere

Woah.

Is this for serious? Are the boys in U of T’s residence buildings actually clogging up the pipes by… unclogging their pipes? (Sorry. There’s no tactful way to phrase this one.)

Maybe some prankster got his (or her) hands on University of Toronto letterhead and decided to have a bit of fun…

Or maybe those poor kids really are overworked and under… played.

Everything is (SO NOT) terrible

I don’t know how to begin describing what I saw at the Drake Underground Monday night.

I seriously can’t think of an appropriate adjective.

Weird” is too tame. “Awesome” is too lame. “Hilarious” is thrown around way too loosely in my everyday vocabulary to be used on something that literally made my face ache from laughing so hard for two hours straight. My cheeks are quivering just thinking about it.

I’m sure there’s a word somewhere within the English language to describe Everything is Terrible’s Quest for the Magick Crystal Tour… If not  in English, then surely in Mandarin, and if not Mandarin, then SURELY in Newspeak. “doubleplusgood“, perhaps?

Whatever the most appropriate adjective is, it should most definitely be used with an emphatic “fucking” in front of it.

As promised, EIT’s new film (2Everything2Terrible2: Tokyo Drift) pretty much melted my face off just like everything else on their genius flucking website.

If you like post-postmodernist psychadellic pseudo-vintage pop culture remixes, or are a hypersatirical millenial neo-nerd who tries to use schmancy terms in big run-on sentences like me *BREATH*, you’ll love this film.

Also, if you have eyeballs you’ll love this film.

If you didn’t already know, Everything is Terrible = Seven internet monsters who scour the seven seas (but like, on land) for old VHS tapes with so-weird-it’s-pee-your-pants-hilarious stuff on them that isn’t actually supposed to be hilarious but IS hilarious – know what I mean?

Stuff like Educational Christian videos, Cat massage tutorials from the 80s, and the creepiest/BEST yoga workout video for children in the history of yoga, workout videos and children:

EIT takes said VHS tapes, digitize them and puts them online for you to watch at work while you’re supposed to be doing something less awesome.

THEN, they take these fabulous clips and re-mix them into insanely entertaining feature-length films like the one I saw on Monday night during their show at The Drake.

I think I fell legitimately in love with these monsters after seeing them do their thing in person – and by “do their thing” i mean dance around the room, make witty quips in funny voices and teach the audience about shade tippage.

Did I mention that they’re monsters from the internet? Monsters. From THE INTERNET.

*sigh*

I used to think I was quirky and unique for loving weird shit like this. Not to sound like a hipster who gets all pissy when their favourite obscure underground band starts to get popular but like… well you know where I’m going with this.

To fetch my dinner from the microwave, that’s where – ’cause that little black tray of sodium saturated goodness certainly isn’t going to walk into my belly on its own, now is it?

yup.

Love always,

Lauren O’Gilgamesh.
