Chicks with Steve Buscemeyes

21 April 2011 | 0 Comments

Someone started a Tumblr blog where they take Steve Buscemi’s eyes and photoshop them onto women celebrities.  Creepy and hilarious.

Don’t you love the internet?  Where else would you find something so funny and ridiculous?

Funny on Friday: Regretsy

17 December 2010 | 0 Comments

I’m sure you’re familiar with Etsy – the online marketplace where you can buy all kinds of wonderful handmade products.  But have you ever checked out Regretsy?

Billed as “where DIY meets WTF”, Regretsy features all kinds of products that probably started out with the best intentions, but something went terribly wrong.  My favourites include the Hitler/Tinkerbell painting and the Cabbage Patch ear muffs (pictured above).

If you need a good laugh, check out the masterpieces on Regretsy.

PS – can’t get enough?  There’s a book.

Funny on Friday: Zach Galifianakis

22 October 2010 | 1 Comment

These recent swimsuit photos of Zach Galifianakis in Vanity Fair reminded me of how much I love him.  From The Hangover to Bored to Death, I find just about everything he does super hilarious.  Have you seen his “Between Two Ferns” videos on Funny or Die?  If not, I recommend this one with Jon Hamm (someone else I adore):

Funny on Friday: Working from Home

27 August 2010 | 0 Comments

I saw this new comic on the Oatmeal and thought it was entertaining.  And pretty true – the “fewer interruptions” is one of the best parts of my job, but the “distractions” and “loss of regimen” get me from time to time….  Enjoy!

Funny on Friday: Christopher Walken

20 August 2010 | 0 Comments

Back in March, when we were in NYC, we saw Christopher Walken on Broadway in A Behanding In Spokane.  Ian couldn’t stop laughing at the way he talks (seriously, is that an accent?) throughout the whole play.

Here’s Christopher Walken and that amazing voice, reading the lyrics Lady Gaga’s Poker Face.  Enjoy.

Funny on Friday: How to Swear in English

6 August 2010 | 0 Comments

if you’re Korean.  I particularly like the bit at the beginning where the instructor rationalizes why you would need to know English swear words, and that little children and pregnant women should not watch, because “it won’t be good for their education.”  Enjoy!

Social Media Strategy?

5 August 2010 | 0 Comments

I know it’s not Friday (when I usually post funny things), but I had to post this anyway.  This is the funniest website I’ve seen in a long time: What The Fuck Is My Social Media Strategy?

I’m strongly suspicious of people who work in marketing or PR and are trying to “harness the power of social media” or “strengthen the relationship between consumer and the brand”.  And people who call themselves social media gurus?  Yeah, I’m highly suspicious of them too.  Especially if they can’t do anything else, like plan a traditional marketing campaign or design something.  (unless you’re Scott Stratten of UnMarketing – the best social media expert/non-expert out there.  Follow his tweets and read his blog.  It’s good for you.)

Yep, I’m a web designer.  So I’m online all day long, and I know a thing or two about the interwebs.  But seriously, don’t ask me about how to use Twitter or Facebook for your business, because I honestly believe you shouldn’t.

Next time someone asks me for social media advice, I’m gonna spew out one of the answers from this website.

Funny on Friday: Awkward Stock Photos

30 July 2010 | 0 Comments

Oh wow, these are hilarious.  Even if you’re not a graphic designer who has to sift through piles of stock photography looking for the perfect image on a semi-regular basis.  Awkward Stock Photos – enjoy.
