Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose

Robin Bowman is a photojournalist who spent four years traveling in the states interviewing and photographing teenagers. Then she compiled all 414 portraits into one book called It's Complicated: The American Teenager. NPR posted a slideshow of 17 of the portraits and they're amazing. People can be so poignant. Okay, I am obsessed with teenage culture, but i think this is something everyone would like. Check it out here.

I'm not going to post about every threadless shirt i might like, but this one has to be brought to everyone's attention. I mean, it's a cat with a WHALE in its mouth. And it's called -- get this -- "I Got Another Whale." Oh!!! Hahaha!!! No, but seriously... this shirt is very funny with zero fancy stuff. And, if you can believe it, it used to be even cooler when it was just an idea. Wrap-around cat? Oh man. This shirt helped me make the important distinction between the idea of cats (i love cat ideas) and actual cats (ugh yuck).

Apparently, BBC does an April Fool's joke every year. 2008's is amazing:
