Word up, puppies!
If you’ve been around the web for any certain amount of time, you’ve likely seen the cover of Scholastic’s HI-LARIOUS educational “first discovery” book Internet.
When upon further enGooglement of that image (which I first found via Reddit or Tumblr or 4Chan prolly,) I discovered that it had come from the cover of a book written in the year 2000 I was like “WHAT?!?” — I had fully thought that it was from the early 90′s. As in the AOL era. You know? But whatever.
The Shelfies crew was kind enough to send over a few of said sweaters for Casie and I to rock on our blogs (AND IN MEATSPACE, NATCH) because we’re all about surfing the WWW. See?
Away we fled to the Pineapple Palace after receiving our new sweaters in the mail, for a photo shoot with one Becca Lemire.
Enjoy the gallery below and then head on over to Shelfies to purchase one of these bad boys for yourself if you like. then you can join the blondetourage, just like Becca’s roomate’s dog Chloe!
P.S. I played with the lizard again.
P.P.S. Here are some cats puking to techno:
P.P.P.S. If you’re curious about the title of this post, nyaw.
Look away… I’m hideous!
No, I’m kidding. That’s exactly the point.
Have you heard of the Pretty Girls Ugly Faces subreddit yet? Because I’m totally obsessed with it right now — in that I’m obsessed with making weird faces and posting them on the internet for a reason.
At one point, this post got up to number 4 on that sub. NUMBER FOUR! Next time, I’m aiming for the top. HOW FUGLY CAN I GET?!?! Only time will tell.
Here’s the full Imgur gallery of my fugfaces if you’re into that. If you’re reading this blog, you likely are.
In other news, I just got some velvet overalls from Urban Outfitters and I’m in love with them. They’re called the “troublemaker playsuit” and they’re by MinkPink, natch. Some photos, if you will:
Lastly, CACHE MONET. I don’t even know how to describe this site other than it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. It’ll either clean your brain out or make you have the most glorious lucid seizure you ever did have. I am agog! I am aghast! Is Laurius in love at last? Probably. Yeah, definitely.
“Digital Divas is a column written for the internet, by Yung Klout Gang‘s Lina Abascal, a girl who loves the internet. It’s about young women who (similarly to Lina) have created online personas that have attracted thousands of fans and followers. These are spokeswomen for the emoji-speaking Tumblr-dwelling generation, where thousands of miles of distance can be spanned with a few clicks. Musicians, designers, writers, photographers and more make up a community of global tastemakers and cultural commentators representing the famous motto “girl power” on the world wide web.
Read my full interview for Frank151 and Lina Abascal‘s Digital Divas column here. Topics covered include: millennial bashing, brand building, the joys of nerd culture and why Canadians rule.
Big ups to Lina — the kind of chick who gives me hope for the future of internet culture. YKG gets it. LINA GETS IT. Thanks for choosing me as a digital diva and for the awesome questions.
Life’s been fast, wild and fun lately. You can see a little bit of that on Instagram. If you haven’t been able to tell, I’m taking a bit of a summer break from life-blogging… though I seem to be Tweeting and Vining more than ever to compensate :p
