Two of my favorite people in the entire world got married this weekend!!! It was the cutest wedding ever! I like to think I had something to do with that - I suggested the wedding colors and voiced a strong opinion about the bridesmaid dresses - but really I was just along for the ride. Since I thought it was a little inappropriate to have wild colored nails for the ceremony, I went with a traditional French mani. But here's what I would have done!
I have no words when it comes to the Boston Marathon bombings today... I'm still going to upload this originally cheerful post, because during stuff like this sometimes you just need to look at something else for a while. My prayers go out to everyone in Boston today.
Have you guys seen all of the "Draw My Life" videos on YouTube lately? I think they're super adorable! Too bad I'm not a YouTuber or else I'd join in lol. Maybe one day... Instead I have some glittery nails for you! I kind of just started painting and ended up at this... It's not really a gradient because the gold I used is flakey and makes little clumps, but I like how it turned out. :]
I love April Fools Day!! When I was little I would try and prank my sister on a regular basis, but on April Fools Day I'd crank that shit up to 11. They were really horrible pranks, but they still managed to scare her. Teehee.
This year, most of my favorite websites have had some pretty sick posts.
My favorite, and most unexpected one so far, is from Netflix. They've added a ton of incredibly ridiculous and specific genres, making fun of their already ridiculously specific genres. So far I've gotten these two, but Huff Post has a pretty good list of them
Google has a bunch of different pranks this year. Google Maps "Treasure Mode" actually looks amazing, and I could see myself using it for sure.
I checked it out and played around a little bit. If you zoom into Street View, they made it sepia colored and like you're looking through an old-timey looking glass!
Regular Google could not be upstaged by Maps, so they announced their latest innovation - Google Nose (Beta)! Now you can smell the internet!
Not to be left out, Gmail announced it's completely renovated, yet exactly the same, Gmail Blue.
YouTube (owned by Google) announced that, like Google Reader, they'd be shutting down YouTube at midnight. They explained that YouTube was originally launched as a way to find the best video on the internet, and that they'd review all of the submissions and announce the winner upon the site's relaunch (featuring only the winning video) in 2023. Again, Huff Post has all the deets. Google Reader users were not amused.
Pajiba has joined in the fun by posting ironic flashback articles, all of which had me rolling on the floor laughing. So here are some links with recaps.
Courtney Enlow scorns Paris Hilton's semi-unknown BFF Kim Kardashian for following in Paris's sex tape footsteps. She notes that America will never again be fooled into making a celebrity out of a slut.
Seth Freilich gives us his top news articles floating around the barely-developed interwebs of 1987. He writes about "some Austrian thing called Red Bull" that "tastes like herpes" and his hatred of those "god damned Simpsons shorts" that everyone keeps insisting is good.
Honorable Mentions: Hulu announcing they'll be launching new shows including: MILF Island and Inspector Space Time. Twitter launching Twttr, a basic service that allows users to only twt consonants.
UPDATE: International Business Times also has a pretty sweet summary article!!
Also, Pajiba has been adding more and more articles. I can't keep up!
