Weird Box

I love the internet. I stumbled across this “thing” this evening that lets you insert your Instagram handle and features your photos in a dramatic short film. I found it to be pretty comical and at times, maybe a little even ridiculous, but still all in good fun. I was actually surprised at how some instances could have been pretty accurate too. Try it yourself here!

AutoDraw

Boy, do I have a new time waster for you. I just discovered AutoDraw this evening and this was clearly made for the person who can’t art at all. The tool lets you draw what you want, but then using artificial intelligence, predicts what you might be drawing and allows you to upgrade with a better version of your drawing. The final result ends up looking something along the lines of clip art, but at least you won’t have any squiggly lines. Enjoy!

Chinatown Pretty

San Francisco’s Chinatown is like nothing I’ve ever really experienced before. For one, it’s one of my least favorite places to drive through because the streets are so narrow and there are people everywhere – not like Seattle at all. However, you’ll find some of the most authentic dishes at some of the best restaurants that remind me the most of home. I don’t know about you, but if I’m ever looking for Chinese food, it’s definitely not going to be at some fusion-esque place or PF Changs.

I stumbled across this blog last night that proves that SF’s Chinatown offers more than just food, but an array of fashion. Chinatown Pretty highlights the best in head-to-toe looks from the local seniors. So cute, right?

Never Liked It Anyway

When a relationship ends, every gift you’ve ever gotten from your ex becomes completely meaningless. Every urge to wear that leftover piece of clothing goes away. Every romantic gift that came with a sweet gesture just makes you rage. You could just toss it all out, or you could get a little something back for it. That’s where “Never Liked It Anyway” comes in. Instead of just dumping everything into the garbage, why not sell it?

There’s never any right way to get over a breakup, but if you haven’t found the solution yet, you might want to give this one a shot.

I don’t feel like trying out the site myself, but I’m curious about what kinds of goods you can get off of it. Readers, care to some digging for us?

Dudes in Startup Shirts

So it’s not the best looking Tumblr, but how Silicon Valley of them anyways…

Can we include some females in this though too? We also wear startup shirts if you didn’t know.

Forgotify

I discovered Forgotify while perusing other blogs earlier in the week and couldn’t wait to actually check it out for myself. Basically, Forgotify pulls up the songs that have never even once been listened to on the app. Can you believe that there’s a reported 4 million of them? The first one I pulled up was a classical piece…Two Elegiac Melodies, Op. 34: No. 1: Heartwounds to be exact. And I couldn’t even begin to tell you what that means.

The Rap Test

On Fridays, my team likes to do a little something that we call “a throwback to old school R&B” which involves playing a bunch of old school R&B hits from our childhood. We’ve done this for two weeks now, but I could see it becoming something that we do on the reg. Thanks to my brother, I was a pro at knowing all of the classics by the time I was age 5. I was pretty unusual I guess. My coworker Tenzing introduced me to a game on the internet the other day (or what we like to call a time waster) in which you pick which artist you know best – Drake or Kanye – and you are able to choose the title of the song based on the snippet that you hear. I passed level 1 and it started going downhill from there, but I urge you to try it out yourself. It’s a great way to pass the time and learn some great songs that you may or may not have spent much time with. Enjoy The Rap Test y’all!

Old Loves

I stumbled across this Tumblr the other day called “Old Loves” and for some reason found myself perusing it for nearly 20 minutes. There’s something really endearing about vintage photographs of old celebrity relationships. I know I have my favorites – Vanessa and Zac, Rachel and Ryan, Rachel and Adam! This list could go on forever. Sure, these were the couples of my time, but some couples date back even further before I was even born.

Oh memories.

Noisli

Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 8.22.48 PM

Generally when I’m at work, I just prefer to listen to my Spotify, but I know so many people that prefer more natural sounds. If you’re seeking something like that, then Noisli might be the best option for you. Not only does it transition into very soothing and pretty colors, but it has an array of sounds that are fit for anyone’s liking including rain, thunder storms, waves, and even the type of sounds you might hear at a coffee shop.
