Not only is actor Chris Pratt known as the star of Parks and Rec and Jurassic World, but he’s also known as being one of the coolest guys around.
When he was in the market for a new header for his Facebook page, instead of hiring some fancy designer, he decided to do a contest with his fans (plus, as he puts it, he doesn’t know Photoshop).
He asked only that the image feature his most famous characters — Peter Quill, Owen, Andy, and Emmet — as well as “eagles, American flags, guns, cool ford raptors, cigars, explosions” and “some cool guns or rollerblades,” among his other favorite things.
Along with Pratt noticing (and mentioning) you as the winner, you might also get “a free dinner at Applebee’s or something like that.”
Needless to say, Pratt fans fired up their computers and started creating, and Pratt is personally looking through all the submissions himself. Although the winner is yet to be announced, here’s a selection of the best and weirdest so far, but be sure to visit Pratt’s page to check out the rest — and maybe enter your own.
Dating is hard. Theoretically online dating should make things easier (you don’t even have to leave the house to try and find a date) but in reality, not so much. It’s shocking, but people can actually exaggerate their profiles online. I know. Outrageous.
That’s where Tinder comes in. If you’re not familiar, the app forces users to make impulse decisions based on physical appearances to engage in a conversation. If you like what you see and read, you swipe right to chat. If you don’t like what you see, swipe left.
Easy enough and, after all, what quality relationship doesn’t start with physical appearances and phones?
I don’t think I’ve ever experienced having to sit on hold with customer service and having patience at the same time. I understand it’s a very difficult job and they deal with a bunch of, shall we say, “difficult” people, but see previous sentence. People don’t generally call them because they’re so happy.
With that said, there is a parody Facebook customer service page — WeHopeThatHelps.com — that responds to customer complaints on brand pages. Even though they don’t represent the company getting complaints, their comments are rarely deleted.
The only explanation is that they’re hilarious and they’re also saying what real customer service people wish they could say but that they can’t because it wouldn’t be professional.
And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to say this?
A few weeks ago, photographer Meagan Abell was thrift store shopping in Richmond, Virginia, when she came across a box of film negatives. Curious about the images, she bought the negatives, took them home, and scanned them…
And was absolutely stunned by the photographs’ beautiful, moody atmosphere.
The devastatingly gorgeous results show two young women, bathed in the rosy, golden light of the setting sun, standing on a beach, and walking into the ocean.
Unfortunately, the owner of the thrift store has no idea where the photos came from though, judging by the style of dress, Abell’s best guess is that they were take in the 1940s or 1950s. She thinks the film is most likely 60mm, and may be Kodachrome.
But beyond that, the incredible photographs and their subjects are a total mystery.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if your favorite celebrities were morphed into one single person?
ThatNordicGuy (Norwegian Pedro Berg Johnsen) is a digital artist who uses a combination of software to perfectly blend the faces of famous people and answer that very question.
“I use a bit of Photoshop for final touches and editing, but the actual blending is done in a program called SqirlzMorph. It’s free, and pretty easy to use,” Johnsen said. “As for time, everything between two hours and a couple of days. It depends on image size, what level of detail I’m going for and how invested I am in the project.”
So if you’ve ever wondered what stunning people would result from the morphing of stars like Taylor Swift and Emma Watson or Jared Leto and Heath Ledger, prepare for the mind-bending results.
The insanely popular blog Humans Of New York is filled with the beautiful and insightful thoughts of New Yorkers, yet it seemed to be missing something…
Comedian Jim Tews noticed this omission and set out to solve this with his Felines Of New York (FONY) blog, where he collects photos of New York’s cats and writes introspective and meaningful captions for them, based on the premise of HONY.
We’ve all been there: Your best friend calls you up, all excited — and you know it’s a big deal, because who actually talks on the phone anymore? They tell you that they’ve met someone really special, and they want you to meet them.
The next thing you know, they’re always together, even when you’re supposed to be hanging out one-on-one for some bestie time.
So what can you do? Well, one guy seems to have decided that he’s better off embracing his role as a third wheel…
Meet Peter Alden, a 29-year-old single guy who lives in New York City (that’s him in the ocean).
