Well… somewhere along the line I missed iJustine. If you are not familiar with her, Justine Ezarik (pronunciation: /iːˈzɛrɪk/; born March 20, 1984), is an American viral video comedian, and Internet personality. She was originally based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but now works from Los Angeles. She is best known as iJustine, a lifecaster who communicates directly with her thousands of viewers on her Justin.tv channel, ijustine.tv. She has made more than 400 videos, including videos on such subjects as Lost and parkour. Her videos have received more than 25 million views – with 16 million on YouTube alone. Her popularity is such that a video about her wanting to order a cheeseburger got 600,000 YouTube views in a week. She is sometimes described as a “lifecasting star,” a “new media star,” or one of the web’s most popular lifecasters. In 2008, she relocated her base of operation from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Los Angeles, California.
This is the video that caught my attention. If you are on Twitter… enjoy!<P>

A hat has a certain power. The power to transform, to uplift, to even complete an outfit. A hat can push an outfit overboard into the realms of costume. It can take an outfit that’s plain and simple and give it an interesting feature, like a beautiful painting on a plain white wall. Maison Michel is one brand that creates the kind of millinery treats you can rarely go wrong with, having created both the peach trilby worn by model Elena Perminova and, again, another covetable offering:
With a healthy disregard for social etiquette and a retinue of friends and admirers among the city’s “racy” women, couturier Coco Chanel traversed the boundaries between lady and mistress.
By the beginning of the twenties Chanel was already a phenomenon in French fashion circles. She had come to Paris as the mistress of the textile baron Etienne Balsan in 1909 and set up a millinery boutique under Balsan’s apartment.
By 1921, she had a series of successful boutiques in Paris, Deauville and Biarritz, she owned a villa in the south of France and drove around in her own blue Rolls Royce. Read more
Gaga wears many hats (meat or otherwise), but her stint as Creative Director at Polaroid may just what the camera company needs to get itself on its feet again. For her first batch of Gaga-approved products, Polaroid will release a mini-printer that can wirelessly print smartphone photos without ink, sunglasses with built-in video recording and playback capabilities, as well as a camera with a built-in printer. Products will begin debuting in mid-June at Bloomingdales, HSN, and Costco. Forget James Bond—it seems as if Gaga’s got the gadget hookup. Little Monsters, the future is now! (WWD)
Working as a Web Administrator I am all too familiar with the dangers the internet hold for children. It is a topic I discuss often with our staff. Mashable posted the article below filled with excellent information.
Repost From: Mashable.com
The Internet didn’t arrive for most of today’s parents until after they had passed adolescence. Online behavior was something they were able to approach with the disposition of an adult (even if some chose not to).
Their children, however, were born into a very different situation. It’s not uncommon to see an iPad next to the crib, and 7.5 million children younger than 13 have Facebook profiles.
If parents don’t teach online safety, their children might not recognize imprudent online actions or realize their consequences.
“Younger kids certainly don’t know that what they post is out there for everyone,” explains Jeff Godlis, the director of communications for Internet literacy education publisher i-Safe. “As you get older, the kids keep pushing the barriers… Parents need to be parents, and they have to be involved.” Read more
This design concept might be more sight gag than real product, but it’s clever nonetheless. Bringing new meaning to the phase “you snooze, you lose,” when you place this unforgiving clock across the room from your bed, if you don’t get up when the alarm sounds, it’s going to cost you.
Might we suggest at first being easy on yourself, placing a lower-denomination bill into this sleeper’s trap before you start punishing yourself too much. From the looks of these pics, that shredder does a thorough job of destroying currency or whatever else you’d like to place in it. And look at that — the designer has placed not one, but what looks like a stack of $100 bills into the clock’s hungry maw. Read more
I think everyone at some point has come across the awesomeness of ASCII art. It first appeared on the early Commodore 64, if not even earlier. It spread like wildfire, and we have been evolving it ever since. With a computer, it’s really simple to achieve good results. If I am not mistaken, there are several “converters” out there that will let you upload a photo which it then converts into ASCII art, which looks almost identical to your image. I admit that it’s somewhat cheating to do it that way, but it is the fastest way, so people tend to resolve to that solution. The real ASCII art is of course created without any software algorithm deciding the right character for a certain part of the image. Read more
Answer: No, says the person who owns every season of “Golden Girls” on DVD. She is such an ideal spokeswoman for AARP, given that much of her success occurred after she turned 50. White tells soon-to-be 50somethings to “Get Over It,” in a TV ad encouraging those 50 and older to join AARP. White proves that joining AARP doesn’t make you old by hosting a telethon, answering every phone call and performing with her band to entertain viewers.
And under the hmmmm… category today we have Enigma – Battleship Drinking Game. Not sure if this sounds like fun or one giant hang over. Mauricio Harion made a drinking game based on Battleship. When you hit an opponent’s ship, they have to drink a shot.This is the classic Battleship game turned into a simple to play (and fun) bar game. It’s played just like the usual Battleship game with one addition. If you miss the target you drink a sip of water, and if you hit an enemy boat you opponent empties the corresponding shot glass.
