  2. Photographer Takes One Creative Photo of Kermit the Frog a Day

    it's time to play the music

    Photographer Matthew McCrory is undergoing a new art project close to our hearts. He took a new picture of his family's Kermit the Frog doll every day this past month, and put it up on Tumblr. Spring is an awfully green season, but it's beautiful and it's how it wants to be.

  3. Men Who Take Up Too Much Room on Subway Explained… With Cats!

    Elsewhere on the internet

    Men Taking Up Too Much Space on the Train is a blog dedicated to showcasing how easy it is for the masses to obtain pictures of men spreading themselves across two seats on a train, when they could easily take up one. It's framed, as much as any single serving Tumblog can frame an issue, as a demonstration of one of the myriad small ways in which the societal urgings -- that encourage women to be slight and small and above all not impose on others and that encourage men to assert their presence and claim their space -- manifest even in the smallest of ways. Saving Room For Cats posits that it's not the result of subtle societal messages at all: it's because all those guys are saving room for enormous photoshopped cats. And sometimes those cats are saving room for other cats.

  4. TL;DR Wikipedia Distills the Internet’s Vast Knowledge Into Short, Sarcastic Barbs

    Finally, the information of the Internet expressed in the native language of the Internet.

    There's a lot of information on the Internet, so it can be hard to know just where to turn when you want a concise explanation of any given subject. That's where TL;DR Wikipedia comes in. They take all of the "knowledge" and "facts" and reduce it to easily remembered, sarcastic flash cards.

  5. Tumblr Reviews Tom Hiddleston’s The Pirate Fairy: An Affectionate Parody

    Why Tom Hiddleston followed up a string of successful indies and Hollywood blockbusters with a supporting role in the direct-to-DVD Disney movie The Pirate Fairy is a mystery for the ages. Was it the paycheck? The opportunity to sing in a Disney movie? Is he literally just that happy to do any kind of movie whatsoever? Can we expect infomercials next? What we do know is that if Hiddleston's in it, Tumblr's freaking out over it. I say that with affection, not derision. But, like many Tumblr users (no, you cannot know my username), I carry around with me at all times a strong love of self-derision and satire*. To that end, here's the Official The Mary Sue Review of The Pirate Fairy...as written by Tumblr. Or, well, "Tumblr." *In fact, Tumblr loves satire so much that it sometimes takes satirical news stories a little too much to heart.

  6. Things We Saw Today: Lots of April Fools’ Day Gags

    As they have become famous for, ThinkGeek.com rolled out a bunch of "new" products today. Unfortunately they're all April Fools' Day jokes. The one we're most upset over? The Klingon Rosetta Stone. Because seriously, I've always wanted to learn Klingon. But also, the Unicorn Drinking Horn (pictured above) should go into production immediately. Only larger. Much larger.

  9. Things We Saw Today: Lady Fett

    Things We Saw Today

    "I remember playing with my Boba Fett action figure as a little kid, and my mom saying 'Boba Fett could be a woman, you can’t tell with the armor and the helmet.' This was in the mid- 90s, before the prequel films revealed Boba Fett to be some lame clone kid," says Tumblr user aJRAWINGS. "I still think of Boba Fett being female to this day, and I still think that’s cooler than the 'official' explanation." Ditto. (thanks, anon tipster!)

  10. What If All of Beyoncé’s Songs Were About Fighting Zombies

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    Today in Things We Can't Not Post, artist Ali Graham is currently running a Tumblr where he takes a Beyonce lyric and interprets it in the context of a zombie apocalypse where the singer is a scourge of the undead hordes. We approve, and so, I think, would Michonne, Buffy, Alice, Ellie, Riley, and Clementine.
