The Year of Beyoncé

February 10, 2013 |

We’re calling it now- 2013 will be the year of Beyoncé.

After the lip syncing/inauguration “scandal” that turned into awesomeness times a million (seriously, who else has the chutzpah to invite a bunch of reporters into one room and prove that you have the skills to sing the national anthem live?!?) and owning it at the Super Bowl halftime Show, Bey had a pretty great start to 2013.  If you thought she was going to slink back under the radar for a bit, you were wrong.  Thanks to the awesomeness that is the internet, we’ll all be rehashing her halftime performance for just a bit longer.

Awesomesauce- Dogshaming

January 31, 2013 |

Dogshaming.com is the funniest Tumblr you’ve never heard of. Elegant in it’s simplicity, Dogshaming is devoted to just that- owners shaming their pets for their misdeeds.  Owners with dogs to be shamed submit photos of their pups immediately following (or sometimes in the middle of) their crimes.  Read More

Awesomesauce- BadLipReading

January 3, 2013 |

Move over Gossip Girl, there’s a new queen bee in town.

While Gossip Girl can be cutting, BadLipReading never fails to elicit a laugh.  The YouTube account’s owner has released a series of videos that embarrass politicians, musicians, and the occasional movie star in equal measure.  The anonymous creator takes video clips from the internet, television, and movies and overdubs the dialogue or lyrics to comic effect.

Vote 2012

December 9, 2012 |

Are you voting in 2012?

Not *that* vote…you’re just a bit late for that one…

You know that paragraph all your friends have been copying and pasting on their walls, stating that they retain all their rights to the content they put on Facebook, etc, etc, blah, blah, blah?  Facebook has proposed several site changes that sparked that flurry of idiocy and they’re letting the users vote on the changes.

Awesomesauce- CharityNavigator.org

December 6, 2012 |

The beginning of December usually means one of several things to most people:

1. Yes!  Great Lakes Christmas Ale season is here again!  (oops, is that just us…?)

2. Crap, now I have to think about what Great Aunt Edna wants for Christmas.

3. Ermahgerd! Menorahs! Eggnog!  Mistletoe!

4. Wow, I should squeeze that charity donation in before the end of the year…

Awesomesauce- HOMAGE tees

November 22, 2012 |

Remember your favorite t-shirt from your childhood? It had been worn so many times that the shoulder seams were threadbare and threatening to burst.  You never let your mom throw it away, though, since it was so soft from one too many washings.  Read More

Awesomesauce- IFTTT

November 8, 2012 | 1

While on the younger end of the spectrum, I don’t consider myself to be particularly tech savvy.  Let’s put it this way- I may have watched a liveblog of an Apple announcement or two, but I can’t rebuild your hard drive.  Despite this, I’m constantly surprised by the number of services I use on a daily basis that not one of my friends or coworkers has EVER heard of.  I’m here to show you some of the coolest things you’ve never heard of…yet.

Binders Full of Women

With a new, increasingly plugged-in generation coming of voting age, this election is arguably the first where social media has played a substantial role in the race. While most voters were simply happy that Tuesday night’s Presidential Debate was actually watchable, the internet took particular delight in some of the candidates’ more colorful slips of the tongue. Case in point: within minutes of Mitt Romney’s now infamous “binders full of women” comment, there were new Facebook pages, Tumblrs, and several Twitter hashtags and handles poking fun at the gaffe.
