I’m starting Shit I Found Saturdays here on my blog, which will exist only Saturdays, (betcha couldn’t have gleaned that from the name) which is cool except that the Internet is mostly closed on Saturdays. So let’s fuck that noise and get into cool shit we’ve found around the ‘net (I sorta want to punch myself in the throat for saying “the ‘net”) and bring Saturday back.

It’s like bringing Sexy Back but awesomer.

Join in! We have donuts (lies)!

Shit I Did:

I put this page together for my blogroll, which I’ve been cleaning out. Totes depressing to see so many abandoned blogs. Fill that shit out – my only request is that if you wanna be on my blogroll, just put me on yours.

I pulled out my hair a lot because holy FUCKS does my site look like dogshit right now. This is why I should never hit “Update” on any WordPress blog, ever.

I wrote this. I loved it.

Shit I Read:

Abraham Lincoln Filed For A Facebook Patent in 1845 – I know this is a prank so ancient that dust poured from my fingers when I typed it, but it’s still fucking hilarious. Also: Pranksters, we NEED to do another prank. OBVS.

Violence – So often we forget how after all is said and done, many of us have been the victim of terrible violence in our lives, and we’re left to “recover” on our own.

Graph Paper Press – this is an old wordpress theme site in which, for a not terrible sum, people who have photoblogs and other actual “art shit” to display, can download, customize and use. I get full of the jealous every time I look because I am not a photoblogger, which means I should be banned from the Internet.

Things I Learned In Wisconsin At A Wedding – who doesn’t like lists? And humor?

Fuck You Firefly, Have You Lost Your Light? – totally brave post about feeling empty and broken after a series of shitty relationships.

Lil Bub – the world’s cutest motherfucking cat. I only wish he made videos where he sang and danced.

Shit That Made Me Smile:

Shit That’s Just Fucking Rad:

Shit I Found Saturdays

We live in the motherfucking FUTURE, y’all.

Also: I now have a new thing to lust after.

People Doing Good Shit:

We all know (because I’ve blabbed about it ad nauseum) that I founded and work on a (nearly) non-profit site called Band Back Together, where we work to break down stigmas of mental illness, trauma, sexual abuse, and darkness by bringing them into light. We are, after all, none of us alone. You are all, as always, welcome to post with us.

Turns out? The Internet is rife with people doing good.

My friend Aaron recently launched Kids Cooperate, a site for kids ages 13-15, 16-18, and 18 and over with Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Asperger Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Shyness. Kids will be grouped together based upon their needs and interests.

Kids Corporate has eHangouts, an rad use of technology that brings teens together in safe, facilitated friendship circles to socialize and support each other. Using Google’s secure video conferencing technology, groups of 9 peers and a facilitator meet for 30 minute sessions to check in, play games, and hangout in a way that builds confidence, develops social skills, and scaffolds the development of real friendship.

I think that’s fucking awesome.

  1. OMFG I’M ALREADY ON YOUR BLOGROLL!!! aunt motherfucking becky, i have found absolutely NOTHING on the net this week because i’ve been working on my finals :/ sorry.

  2. You have put a fire under my butt to clean up my blog roll, which I have been wanting to do for a very long time. Oh and a mashed potato vending machine sounds like heaven to me. Those are my comfort food.

  3. Hell Becks, I filled out the form to be on yer Blogroll but there’s not “submit” button, so I just exited the screen and prayed to the interweb gods that you got the info. If not, guess I’m screwed.

    Oh… love the cat!

  4. Wait a minute!!! Have you seen the YouTube video about how the mash potatoes plop out of the machine and then the grazy is splashed on top? If you haven’t, I’m sure seeing it may put a damper on those lustfull thoughts. Ewwww.

  5. This is something I haven’t found yet but want to find. I’m confident that one of Aunt Becky’s pranksters knows and will share with me where I can find such a thing, hopefully not for a price that will cause me to have to surreptitiously sell off my parents’ few valuable possessions.

    What I desire is this: a TV (or a device that I can plugin to my existing TV) that will block any actor, entertainer, or TV personality whom I disenjoy watching. I still want to be able see the program or movie, but I want the actor or personality’s image blacked out, and the voice either erased or distorted, perhaps into one of those adult voices in the Charlie Brown movies.

    For the record, off the top of my head, the first three people I will block are Marie Osmond, Kate Gosselin, and Rumer Willis.

    Please tell me that this device exists or will exist before my next birthday (December 2) and that I won’t have to leave me parents without an estate to will to me in order to own it.

      1. AL is good. I’ve never had a nickname except for my stupid twin brother who couldn’t speak very articulately calling me Baby Lexus until after we’d already started kindergarten. Seriously, the kindergarten teacher had to make him stop calling me Baby Lexus. Plus I really like the Paul Simon song “You Can Call Me Al,” and the video made with Chevy Chase lip-syncing the lyrics is absolutely classic.

    1. Why are you a frilly bear?
    2. Who is this Zack character?
    3. Who the fuck is paying 32 dollars for this ungodly tchotchke?
    4. Do I get extra points for using that awesome word?

    And also,

    You are a civil war woman with a dead sexy hairdo.

  7. Actually I disremembered. In middle school and high school I was sometimes called Anorexis, but it wasn’t so much a nickname as a taunt. Al is a nickname I could get behind.

  8. AB, did you end up getting the tat?? Also, I’m pretty sure next to that mashed tater dispenser there needs to be a nacho cheese pump, that would be amazeballs!
