Brilliant Idea of the Day: Grilled Cheese Croutons for Tomato Soup!

As a child, my favorite kid-friendly food was grilled cheese and tomato soup. It was one of the few days I bought lunch at school, and it always hit the spot after a snowball fight, or when at home on a sick day. It was even the first meal I learned to cook, around age nine.

As an adult? My favorite kid-friendly food is grilled cheese and tomato soup. Kids today can keep their chicken fingers and mac and cheese triangles, I'll stick with this combo of classic… read more

Moustair - Where Men Meets Mustaches Meets Hair Meets Mustaches...

I stumbled across Mustair early last week, and thought, "Yep, I love it when people come up with things that you think should already exist, but don't" and though I subscribed, imagined I wouldn't keep up with it frequently. But, I have... cause it's really, really funny, and keeps getting better.

I Love Everything About This...

So, apparently there was a major internet event involving a little guy named Marcel, a sweet, confident mollusk with one googly eye and a pair of shoes. 

And. I totally missed it. Had no idea about it, really, until yesterday, when "Marcel the Shell with Shoes 2" hit, to accompany an actual print book and interactive iPad app. Along with partnerwith partner Dean Fleischer-Camp,Marcel was conceived and voiced by Jenny Slate, the former SNL featured player who never stood a chance after she swore during her first sketch ever, despite how awesome that doorbell character was. ("Jingle bell...jingle bell...answer your door")

If you're already familiar with Marcel, I'm sorry to be redundant, but if not yet, you most certainly need to know… read more

Stunning Star Trail Photography from the Australian Outback

Photographer Lincoln Harrison has created the most amazing long exposure star trail photographs in the Australian Outback. Taking up to fifteen hours to capture each lens, Harrison uses standard, albeit high-end, photography equipment like the "Nikon D7000, Nikon D3100, and a wide assortment of lenses. Harrison captures a large number of exposures of the foreground and stars separately. He then combines the images (sometimes hundreds of them) into amazing photographs showing the sky dominated by colorful star trails."

The Kitten Covers: Famous Album Art Reimagined with Cats

I'm no hater, but I'm not usually much for cat memes. Maybe it's my allergies, but I just haven't found one that screams, "this is worth your time."

Except for these album covers, with visuals reworked to replace the artists with cats. This, I… read more
