Tumblr Thursday: 3 to try

(nowitsafuckingfroyoplace.tumblr.com)

You know the drill by now—if you’re not following these Tumblrs already, you should be.

Craigslist Douchebags

"I just want to find a goddamn apartment" — a sentiment many of us have felt at one point or another. This Tumblr shares questionable ads from the Chicago Craigslist seeking roommates, specifically female roommates with certain measurements, hair colors … we’ve all seen these ads before, but, man, is it depressing to see them all rounded up, here.

"Have 1 bedroom available for open minded female rent negotiable. Prefer caucasion [sic] or hispanic, height/weight proportionate. Move in Immediately. Rent free!!!!!"

Straight White Boys Texting 

Speaking of douchebags …

… And Now It’s a Fucking Froyo Place

Rhymes with “ducking.” This one documents the hilariously ridiculous froyo joint takeover of New York City over the past few years.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

Puppies! This Tumblr features photos of just-rescued dogs from shelters, um, sleeping. And it’s heart-warming as hell.

Full disclosure: That’s my new pup, Tillie, pictured! Rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control.

People Yelping about Taco Bell

A few highlights:

"Taco Bell is Taco Bell"

"Taco Bell? In a hospital? Admit me now!"

"In haiku I judge
Taco Bell on Western Ave
In my former hood”

(Thanks, Kate!)

Fuck Your Noguchi Coffee Table

Rhymes with “duck.” A Noguchi coffee table is a fairly fancy one named after its artist, Isamu Noguchi. This Tumblr pleasantly mocks all of those effortlessly marvelous interior design photos you see around the Internet.

"[Bleep] your tennis racket tableau."

Kids with Beards

Exactly what it sounds like (famous kids, anyway). Its creator told Buzzfeed Kids with Beards started out as an office joke — about new staff photos — and by way of, y’know, Internet, it took on a life of its own.

Texts from Star Trek: The Next Generation

I’ve been told “Star Trek” fans think this Texts from Last Night spin-off is absolutely hilarious? I don’t know.

Composers Doing Normal Shit

Someone took the idea of rappersdoingnormalshit.tumblr.com and made it work for composers, using some awesomely vintage photos found in archives. What is normal, anyway?

NYC Crying Guide

I’ve totally never cried in public — nope, never — but I’d bet Chicago could get some use of a guide to the best places in the city to let out a good ugly sob. Can you guess which spot is being recommended in this sampling from the NYC one?

"Everyone who comes in here is so overwhelmed by all the options offered to EVER notice you’re crying at a table all alone!!! I cried here last night while enjoying a dunkaccino with a veggie footlong sub and some mint chocolate chip ice cream. It was a really beautiful experience to say the least, one I will remember for a very long time. Highly recommended!!!!!"

House of Drake

Someday we’ll grow tired of any mashups involving “House of Cards” or Drake lyrics. Today is not that day.

Fly Art 

Speaking of Drake … Fly Art is “the best marriage on the Internet: hip hop and art.” Have a great weekend, everyone!

Mannequin Depressed

Don’t act like you don’t do this — by “this,” I mean stand in front of storefront windows by yourself, concocting backstories for the mannequins on display.

Hot Girls With Cheeseburgers

The truth is … we’re all hot when we’re eating cheeseburgers.

(Thanks, Kate!)

Upworthy Springfield

What if the “Simpsons” town of Springfield inspired Upworthy posts with super Upworthy-esque headlines? The results will astound you and turn your cold-ass heart into Cheetos dust.

Lazy Banksy
lazybanksy.tumblr.com

These are what Banksy’s projects would look like if he exerted just a little less effort in his street art. Created by locals Mike Nudelman (he draws) and Cullen Crawford (he brainstorms). 

Des Hommes et des Chatons
deshommesetdeschatons.tumblr.com

The description of this French Tumblr translates to, “The tumblr as cute as sexy that brings our two favourite things together: kittens and men!” But all you really need to know is: male model photos with their matching cat photos. Game-changer.
