Laurenoutloud.com does not condone the kicking, punching, or otherwise physical harming of animals (shaming, on the other hand, is all good.)
That said, this video might be the coolest effing thing I’ve seen all week:
Moral of the story: fashion, I think.
I wrote about viral videos more than usual at work this week. It was a good week for the YouTubes, ya know?
A few of my favourites:
- Gangnam Style
- Invisible bike helmet
- The beat-boxing beauty queen
- HOT CHEETOS & TAKIS (warning: total earworm.)
That little girl rapper totally jacked those moves from me. I swear to Hov, that’s EXACTLY the way I dance when I’m out with my friends on the town — which is exactly what I did last night. And the night before that, too.
So sleepy… fading fast… but first — WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL?
No, no worries Amurrica. Your education system is just fine.
One more video for y’all. Well worth the wonderful, wacky watch if you like watermelons and weird guys:
Time to continue recovering now. BRING ME MY RANCH DRESSING HOSE.
P.S. – Happy Caturday
The art of Cyriak Harris and kitty cat videos = two off my favourite things ever.
I just showed this to a new guy at work because he was curious about my gasps. Little did he know that I’d spend the next 10 minutes geeking out over British surrealism on the web and show him Cows and Cycles and Baa. He can find “Something” on his own if he’s interested. I don’t want to be responsible for giving anybody else nightmares.
Too soon to repost Zombie Walk 2011 gifs? Probably. Not scary enough to warrant nightmares? Definitely.
Try this new video by Die Antwoord on for size. If you’re not comforted by scorpions and angry South African men, you’ll likely be a bit disturbed. Don’t even think about Googling “Human Centipede 2″. Please.
I effing love that song. Great beat, mad passion, and that vulgar breakdown at the end is great. As always, Ninja and Yo-Landi rock my world.
“Fok Julle Naaiers” is the first single off of Die Antwoord‘s soon-to-be-released second album TEN$ION, and apparently it’s tied in some way to the band’s recent split from their label (Interscope / Universal Music).
I’m psyched to see what comes of all that. Such fokken love for those super heroes, I have.
Tonight, I’m going to the Toronto premiere of “Love Lies Bleeding” — The Alberta Ballet’s Elton John-based show. I simply cannot wait!
Full review to come. Please enjoy this Franch Star Wars Disco ballet in the meantime:
Work to do. Must peace.

“If the Internet had a spirit animal, it would be a cat.” – Little Burgundy Magazine , S/S 2011
What is it about felines that makes we the Interfolk love them so damned much? Better question: Why am I blogging right now instead of actively acquiring more cats?
Perhaps I’m just too lazy to put on a pair of pants at the moment, but more likely it’s because I can get my fur fix online without physically having to hug every cat.
I wonder if crazy cat lady populations have increased or decreased since the dawn of the modern web…
Oh, who am I kidding – I’d put that sweater on my cat in a heartbeat. It’s effing awesome.
The Internet and kitties go together like peanut butter and M&M’s, in my opinion. Not the most conventional of combinations, but it’s charming as hell…
No examples are needed to illustrate this point (I give them to you all the freaking time, greedy sods) but here’s one anyway: All 7 Harry Potter films in just over a minute, as acted out by cats:
“I have boobs now!” Hahaha. SO GOOD.
Anyhoo, Last week I ducked into Little Burgundy for the purpose of lusting over some House of Harlow wedges I do not need and – LO & BEHOLD! – A SALE! A big big sale. I bought too much.
Fortunately, my little spending binge was justified because I got one thing foh free. The best thing of all things, in fact:
C’est Little Burgundy’s Spring/Summer 2011 Magazine: The Cat Issue!
I’m a big fan of these lookbook / hipsterzine hybrids. It takes a lot of creativity to make branded editorial content genuinely palatable. H&M does it well, and Little Burgundy hit out of the park with this. Big ups to their
The articles and interviews were penned (keyed, rather) almost entirely by bloggers – good ones, too – and the “hipster cats” illustrations were done by Toronto’s own Melinda Josie. I’ve never met her but I think I love her.
Please do yourself a favour and visit the Little Burgundy Cat Issue microsite for a good chunk of hot shoes and kitty-related content:
I also enjoyed the page with photos from their Future Issue party because I was on it, sort of. See that little quarter of a blonde head in the background there? 100% me. I was talking to that dude forever and was the only severely platinum girl there if I do recall.
Last night, I went to a different party at that very same gallery. The only other time I’ve been there, in fact. It was the annual VICE Photo show in Toronto and it was a hot hipsterlicious mess. Literally. Walking into Show & Tell last night, I felt like I was entering a steam room – except the air was not thick with water, it was thick with Pabst Blue Ribbon and sweat.
The photo essays I saw were incredible (Check out Brett Grundlock’s “The Movement” – powerful stuff), but I think most of these kids came for the free PBR. It was cray-cray near the bar.
I did some other fun things this week when I wasn’t busy pulling my hair out 10-6. Carly‘s sister Kristin had a launch party for her new boutique Hate & Heartbreak on Monday and Raymi danced. It was sexy and fun and great to see my blogging babes. Casie wrote all about it here.
The Blondetourage be making me happy <3
I’ve got to go now. Gunna channel this guy and make like a sick, fearless bastard right now… Going to unload my dishwasher TWO CUPS AT A TIME. I might even start a new book.
Fridays are tired days. It was a really long, hard one today.
(For the record: Little Burgundy didn’t pay me to write this or give me free crap or even knows that I’m in love with them probably. I just really like cats.)
“Hey Ceiling Cat… I know it’s been a while since I prayed but, ya know, life’s been kind of crazy and… well, I was just wondering if you could maybe tone down my lifely obligations for a week or two so that I can resume my regularly scheduled blogramming?”
Kidletts, it’s Would You Rock It Wednesday again. I missed two weeks, so I’m giving this post a SPECIAL sartorial theme: T-shirts, T-shirts, YAY!!!
Best. Shirt. Ever.
That’s David Dixon backstage at fashion week (you can watch the interview here) and this is a T-Shirt that you’ve probably seen before if you’re into geek Tees too, but is ridiculously sweet nonetheless:
So very Sheldon Cooper.
This shirt is also quite sweet, because it blends together two bits of culture that have each separately but profoundly impacted my life and leanings: Simplistic club-banging gangsta hop and Super Mario Bros for NES.
One-of-a-kind, too. Love that.
Almost as much as I love this, the WINNER OF MY BLOG for today – the winner of all things ever for this one moment right now. Take it in, friends… take in the awesomeness that is this shirt:
I shouldn’t have to explain why this shirt is perfect for me on so many levels (okay, two levels), but I will: I like cats and I have small b00bs.
Side note: How many of you actually clicked on that link expecting a picture of my chest? Sickos.
Speaking of cats, this video came up in conversation today and I thought I’d share it again because I don’t think I ever did officially blog about it.
When I was in Sweden 3 years ago, a French friend (Real French, not Canadian French) showed me that to demonstrate the Tektonic dance style, which apparently was all the rage in France at the time. I wonder if it’s still hot?
Maybe I’ll find out soon #BigThingsPopping
Finally, this story about the bald penguin who wears a customized wetsuit to fit in with his peers is so cute it actually hurts my heart a little bit, and that’s it that’s all because it’s 12:20 AM now and it’s not even Wednesday anymore.
The Christmas holidays haven’t been proper chillax in years. That’s growing up, I suppose.
I haven’t yet caught more than 5 hours of sleep on any given night since arriving home on Thursday, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Shopping, dancing, riding the snow…
Brand new kitties, old school parties…
Working, wrapping, rapping, roads…
Coffee dates, dinner dates, kitten cuddles, Rudolph…
Family, friends, blueberry snowmen…
Extendeds, acquaintances, puppies-in-law…
Windsor and Chatham. London. meh…
Fixing computers, fixing my hurr, working on my fitness. faux-foursquare.
Food. Presents. More food and more presents…
The weekly wrap post (v. Xmas 2010) will be delayed a few days Please enjoy this video of my cats by the fireplace in the meantime. It’s ever so precious, you know.
Seriously. I don’t even need to say anything else…
But I will because, obviously, I can’t shut my big blonde flapping head like, ever.
On that note, the team here at laurenoutloud.com (read: Lauren and her two cats) would like to wish all of our Jewish (and Jewish-Feline) friends a happy Hanukkah.
Now please enjoy this video of Conan O’Brien in ridiculously tight pants. I know whoever crocheted this did.
Doesn’t the word “crocheted” look like it’s pronounced “crotch-ah-tid”? It’s pronounced “crochayed” but I like the phonetic version better. Just so you know.
