It feels like just yesterday I received my first invitation to be a zombie. What started with zombies multiplied into vampires, the mafia and (what I believe to be the most terrifying of all) a fish tank. In defense the few remaining humans in this monster-mobster driven world made witty statuses protested incoming requests. That is where it should have ended.

Every time you like something does not make you a Fan of it.  Sure, be a Fan of Dinosaur BBQ. But, let’s be honest: do you really need to publicly declare yourself a Facebook Fan of “You should be thanking me everyday I haven’t punched you in the face yet?”

Again, good to know how you’re feeling, but I don’t care. By the way, if you agree with me you should so totally become a Fan of “I’m not in a bad mood, you just annoy me.”

Here is a beginners guide about what is and is not acceptable to publicly be a fan of. (more…)

It seems fitting that anyone working in a creative industry is going to want a fun, beautiful, and extremely effective space.  Graphic designers seem to fit within the mold of individuals who need to work in a space that speaks to them.  Parliament, a graphic design agency in Portland, Oregon, has provided exactly that.

By this point in time, you’ve surely been acquainted with Apple’s new in devours in the female hygiene market with its latest in “game-changing” technology, the iPad. If you haven’t seen one yet, be sure to visit Apple’s website for images and videos. Or, if that’ too much work for you, grab a friend’s iPod Touch and look at it under a magnifying glass. Ta-da it’s the future! Yeah right. Go back into hibernation, Steve Jobs.

For us self-proclaimed Apple enthusiasts, there has been a lot of disappointment about the new iPad and Internet users have been quick to respond. From across the World Wide Web, I am proud to introduce you to the truth about the iPad, or, as many Twitter users like to refer to it, the “iTampon.”

Winter can be a depressing time of year.  Right now, people are getting back into the routine of classes and school life and could use a little pick-me-up.  As we trudge through what will likely be a few more gray days ahead, think of giving someone a compliment.

Brett Westcott and Cameron Brown, two juniors at Purdue University, do just that. Their mission is to award compliments to simply make people feel good about themselves and brighten their day–they try to pick something that is unique about an individual in order to show that they really notice the small stuff.

So give a compliment to someone today, maybe you’ll get one too.

Hustler is making yet another porn parody, This Ain’t Avatar XXX, based on the #1 movie in the nation and the winner of “Best Motion Picture Drama” at the 2010 Golden Globe Awards. This could either be utterly disastrous, or pretty hilarious.

This is the crazy amounts of influence tacky, reality show guidos have on our culture. Watch these puppies reenact the famous “Snooki punch” from MTV’s The Jersey Shore.
