Procrastination Station 2/9/13

Saturday, February 9, 2013

John and I are gutting our laundry room, painting, and laying tile today, but here are some more entertaining options to keep *you* guys occupied:

The PULP-O-MIZER magazine cover generator has been everywhere online this week, and it is ridiculously fun to play with. Naturally, I had to waste a bunch of time research this myself:


The website lets you download a small version of your finished image for free, but also offers all kinds of products you can buy, from posters to note cards. A 12X18 poster is only $14, too - not bad!


For my fellow Disney fans, the Tumblr photo blog WDW Pics is like Pixie-dusted crack. There are 113 pages of photos there so far, and I'm at page forty-something, and I CAN'T STOP, you guys. Just look:

The gal behind the blog is a fellow Orlando native, so I can only hope I run into her someday - if only so I can bow down and declare how unworthy I am to be in the presence of her photographic genius. She mostly focuses on stunning up-close portraits of the Princesses and other face characters around the park, and, WOW:

How? HOW DOES SHE DO THIS?!

Seriously, just about everything she posts looks like an official park postcard. I love all the little details she's able to capture, from close-ups of Mary Poppin's lace gloves to the various signage around the park. Stunning, stunning, stunning. Oh, and she also has a Flickr account with the pics arranged in albums by character, so head over there to see more!


And finally, I was checking out a few new (to me) web series last week, and I highly recommend the somewhat autobiographical My Gimpy Life. There are plenty of funny moments, but it's also got a bittersweet twist to it that really draws you in to Teal's life. Here's the first episode:


There are only five episodes to season one (watch the rest here), so I'm hoping there will be a season two. (And you've gotta love Felicia Day playing her best friend - with a ringtone that play The Guild's theme song. Ha!)

I also watched some of the Jeff Lewis 5-Minute Comedy Hour, and found a few gems. (You might know Jeff Lewis as Vork from The Guild.) A lot of the episodes are too crass for me, but luckily the more R-rated ones all come with a warning up front. Anyway, of the half-dozen or so I watched, THIS is the one that had me laughing 'til it hurt at 3 o'clock in the morning a few nights back:


If you're a Guild fan, you're going to recognize all these characters - in fact, I think some of them originally met doing this series. Anyway, if this made you laugh, I also recommend Doctor and ATM. I don't usually like cringe-comedy (ala The Office) but those had me guffawing.

Ok, I'm off to help John, since so far he's been doing all the work in the laundry room. (Funny how that worked out for me, huh? ;)) Hope you guys are having a great weekend!

  1. My favorite web series is The Lizzie Bennett Diaries. It's the story of Pride and Prejudice told in a modern way. It's SO GOOD. They just got to the "big scandal". I'm totally sucked in.

  3. I was about to suggest The Lizzie Bennett Diaries as well! SO GOOD. There are 86 episodes right now, they're each about 4-5 minutes long, so you can easily loose hours catching up! The retelling of Pride and Prejudice still keeps you guessing, and the characters are all so much more lovable and real. My Mondays and Thursday will never be the same! :) I've been watching since July, and have been hooked the whole, definitely worth checking out. Love your blog!

  6. Love the Pulp-o-mizer! We took our cat in for radioactive thyroid treatment today (the same treatment they give people for hyperactive thyroid) so I celebrated by creating a "Tales of Madcap Science: Night of the Radio-active kitty" magazine cover. We are also considering making her a Supercat cape for when she gets home.

  7. That Ariel/Eric picture! Oh my goodness, it's so perfectly in character and captures the magic so well! It's things like these pictures that make me wish I lived close to a park...if only it weren't all the way in FL!

  8. I would also recommend the web series "The BAMF Girls Club" for some fantastic geeky, girly goodness. When Buffy Summers, Katniss Everdeen, Michonne, Hermione Granger, Lisbeth Salander and Bella Swan all have to live in a house together...

  9. A funny/absurd web series that I LOVE is "Single White Females" (all videos are here). I'd recommend starting with "But I don't like Superhero Movies!" (the geekiest of the bunch), and "Siri Horror."

  11. The PULP-O-MIZER is way way too much fun! Just posted about it on my blog and made my own cover.

  12. The Disney Pix girl has a statement on her page that says "Please stop using my pictures on tumblr and other sites" I imagine you got permission from her, but just in case not, thought I'd let you know!

  13. Holy cow, loving the PULP-O-MIZER. I was trying to think of places to find a cool space poster that featured women (in case my instincts are wrong and I'm having a girl!) and these are perfect! I can even put his/her name in there!!

  15. Just wanted to thank you for this post - two of the most awesome links you've ever provided me with, in one post. Spent soooo long on the Disney photo blog!

  16. Jeff Lewis's show came out right after season 4 of The Guild, pretty sure. "Tag" was the first one and it's still the best.
