Lifestyle photographer Grace Chon recently turned the camera on her 10-month-old baby Jasper and their 7-year-old rescue dog Zoey, putting them side-by-side in the some of the most adorable portraits ever.


Great song. 

Hauntingly beautiful, enigmatic, smooth as hell – are all words that are likely to enter thought when you hit play on SAFIA’s new single Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds.

"A fantastic extract from Bossypants by Tina Fey, in which she responds to various Internet commenters:”

Yah! I sold my first item haha. It kept it for so long in storage after I moved because I’ve been too busy to sell it and didn’t want to just throw it away. I do usually just toss things if I can’t find a way to have some local organization pick up my things. But I figured, why not. it’s in good condition and it’s currently being sold at Ikea for $249. I put it on sale for $50. There were quite a lot of interests, maybe I sold it for too low haha. 
it was relatively painless. The person came to pick it up within hours of her contacting me. 
I have several other items I just to just toss as well, maybe I’ll put up an ad for those too. 

Update a day later: I’ve now sold my Ikea MARKÖR dining table! Yay! $100 profit. Ikea no longer sells it. I hardly used the table and like the dresser, was sitting in my storage locker for over a year. I gave them my coffee table and a part of a bookcase as well. Saves me the effort to get rid of them. If I was thinking of selling it, I would’ve sold it for only $25 anyway. 
Now I just need to rent out my parking space since I don’t have a car and its empty most of the time. It even has an outlet for an electrical car.

An Octopus unscrewing a lid from the inside.

Octopuses are going to kill us all someday

I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.

Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank

Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.

An octopus in Germany was annoyed by a bright light shining into his tank, so he climbed up over the rim and squirted water at it to short it

Fuckin’ octopuses, man. 

I, for one, welcome our ascendant cephalopod overlords.

Holy. I never knew they were capable of such things.

Oh man this video about “True Facts About The Octopus” is hilarious.

http://youtu.be/st8-EY71K84

The interestingness of an animal is proportional to how difficult it is to figure out where the butthole is. The octopus is, therefore, very interesting.

Although the octopuses eight arms may seem identical, one of the male’s arms is actually a hectocotylus, which functions like a penis. Therefore, shaking hands with a male octopus is sorta like playing Russian roulette, but instead of dying, you risk you hand getting pregnant.

Westfield WTC Branding Video from Hallie Wunsch on Vimeo.

World Trade Center mall - Westfield WTC Branding video

This is the most ridiculous, grandiloquent* video that is basically about a shopping mall. Apparently it will usher in a new way of life pretty much, a new human experience before unseen, unknown to man. It makes me giggle.

So we will imagine and we will boldly go. Like the futurist before us. The ones who dreamed of things that never were. And whose visions drive mankind forward. 

Ok, buddy. Simmer down now.

The music that starts at about 3:30 is from the Tron Legacy movie - Daft Punk’s Derezzed remix by The Glitch Mob.

*I saw someone use that word and it is so perfect to describe this video.

Hello Kitty Bubbly World at McDonald’s Singapore
The toys they sell as a part of the McDonald’s happy meals are so much better in Singapore. This year they celebrating Hello Kitty’s 40th anniversary with these Hello Kitty toys.
In the last few years they sold other Hello Kitty toys and Minions and people seriously stood in long queues and got into physical fights over such toys. 
This year they sold the entire collection of toys online that you can purchase. They are sold out now, but I bought a set of them. You can only buy them in Singapore and you can only buy them online if you have a Singapore mobile number and address though. 
What I will do with them I don’t know but I like cute things haha. I can’t wait to get them. I made a booboo so I hope they are shipped to the correct place. /o\
