what if disney princesses were superheroes?

Posted in Geekery, It Had To Be Said, Just Maybe with tags , , , , , , on September 13, 2010 by Nourisha

it’s not farfetched to imagine your favorite disney princess as a superhero. afterall, it’s a far cry from the damsel in distress that disney seems to prefer it’s young women to be. thank goodness someone had the sense to reimagine these beauties as supers and i have to say i likey!

taken from blastr:

An artist by the name of Kreugan had a “random whim” at 2 a.m. the other night and decided to turn some of Disney’s most iconic princesses into superheroes. They have become so popular so quickly that Kreugan has already had to disable the comments on his her site because he she can no longer keep up with them!

While he’s she’s surprised that his her “Disney Heroes” have become an overnight sensation, we’re not. These are wonderful. Check out his her site for more of his her art, but don’t expect other Disney stuff … he she almost never draws Disney fan art and has no plans to do any more.

Underwater video of BP oil spill

Posted in It Had To Be Said with tags , , on May 12, 2010 by Nourisha

The BP oil spill is probably the worst environmental disaster ever. It only proves further that drill baby drill is the dumbest, most unenvironmental slogan ever to come out of the political arena. But there is so much at stake and a solution needs to be found immediately. Nature’s Citizan has developed a ton of videos detailing the ordeal from the very beginning and you should check them out! Also check out this video of underwater footage from the oil spill.

If we don’t take care of our planet, the one the Lord entrusted to us to subdue and care for, we’ll be looking for somewhere else to live or just die out due to lack of resources. The decision is ours.

Serious procrastinator action

Posted in Geekery, It Had To Be Said, Live Your Life with tags , , , on April 15, 2010 by Nourisha

I’m a procrastinator. I don’t mean to be but I can always find something more exciting or more interesting to do than what I should be doing. I always tell myself I do my best work at the 11th hour but really, I have no idea how good my work could be if I refused to procrastinate. In honor of all the other procrastinators in the world, I’m sharing this flowchart with you. I got it from @ageekgirl on Twitter. She’s awesome. Follow her!

Introducing the iPad and all the jokes that name brings

Posted in Geekery, It Had To Be Said with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 28, 2010 by Nourisha

I am a woman. I found the name iPad completely ridiculous. This is no surprise to most people as the name has created quite the buzz on the interwebs. The lovely ladies at Jezebel have posted a roundup of some of the awesome jokes that made their way to the top of the feeds on Twitter and in comments on other sites. For the record, iTampon was a trending topic on Twitter yesterday and further proof that Apple missed the mark. But I won’t bore you any further. Here is the post from Jezebel. Enjoy!

Apple’s iPad announcement earlier this afternoon prompted a score of WTFing across the internet, prompting many to ask, “Are there any women on Apple’s marketing team?” Answer: Apparently not. (Period.)

From Twitter (for what it’s worth, #iTampon is apparently the number three trending topic on the site.):

tjakabon: “It surfs the web AND stops the bleeding.”

Gelatobaby: And you can use the giant QWERTY keyboard to get your period on the #iPad!

CarolBlymire: Is #apple making an iPad for light-flow days? Just wondering…

Trish1981: iPad? Really? All I can say is, I’m sticking with Always, bitches.

tremendousnews: So I can say “That chick is on her iPad” and not be called a pig? Thank you Apple.

melissapierce: iPad has changed “the conversation” from how we use tech in context to how we use tech as Kotex. (who named this thing?)

TwittsMcGee: I haven’t heard this many period jokes since I was forced to watch The View last month. #iPad

kathycacace: Okay, just one more. The iPad: protecting your data from embarrassing incidents.

Johnpapa: “64 gig iPad will forever be known as the heavy flow model.”

From the comments section of “Period Pieces“:

lady_justice: Did the prototype come with a belt?

Lymed: Does the Period Tracker app come free?

fauxfruit: If I order this, will my boyfriend and I have to worry if it comes late?

andBegorrah: If you and your friends all buy one, will they sync up?

boston_nj: Meh. I’ll wait until they come out with the iDivaCup

morninggloria: Don’t wear white jeans while using an iPad, and especially don’t use an iPad in front of your crush. You’re a teen magazine embarrassing moment waiting to happen.

ms negative the easy-going unicorn: someone needs to make a ‘mysterious blue liquid stain on white’ wallpaper for this.

LilSpitfire: Later in the year they will be releasing the companion tablet pen, the Ipon.

Vesuvius At Home (I believe in peace, bitch): But what if the cute boys see me shopping for one? What if my dad has to take me??

NellMood: It’s so beautiful when an electronics company finally becomes a woman…

Cinnamoncanuck: @NellMood: Aunt Flo will be so happy! Reply

soykatrina: Eh, I prefer the CVS brand. A few bucks less but does the same thing…

vlvtjones: So will iffy Wifi coverage be called iSpotting?

morninggloria: Can I get a scented iPad for when my data feels not-so-fresh?

Mary McCarthyite: Everyone, just try to Stay(free) calm and Poise(d). It’s Always nice to see a new product on the market. I Depend on Apple to come up with great ideas. Maybe we’re taking this out of Kotex.

Lymed: Somebody give the iPad a Red Bull, because it ain’t no good without wings.

andBegorrah: Are you there, God? It’s me, Marketing.

NellMood: iPads are for 8th graders. I’m waiting for the iTampon, because I prefer to do all my interneting from inside my vagina.

BicSharpie: Hopefully it will help people deal with the 24-hour news cycle.
