8 Delicious Breakfast Smoothies and a Pro-Tip for Making Them

It is actually very difficult to make a good smoothie. We've all tried it. You know, toss some strawberries and bananas into a blender. Add some milk or something. Blend it. Then be disappointed at how unsatisfying it is.

Which is why I POUNCE on every smoothie recipe I can find. Having no culinary bone in my body, I need other people to tell me what to put in my smoothies!

This Article from the great people of Buzz Feed is about to transform my freezer. Storing all of the ingredients in a zip lock baggie? GENIUS. Even better that they include 8 recipes to start you out!

As an added bonus here is my very precise Jamba Juice's Mango-A-Go-Go recipe (because it's the only thing that matters at Jamba Juice) and it's a delicious snack:

For 1 serving

Like 5 pieces of frozen mango cubes
Like 5 pieces of frozen pineapple cubes
Like 5 pieces of ice
Fruit juice that has passion fruit juice in it
Optional: Protein Powder

Combine errything in a blender. Pour juice until it's like half an inch from the top of the frozen stuff. You'll know if you've used enough juice because if you haven't, the smoothie will just kind of sit in the blender even though it's running. (If this happens just add more juice). And there we have it. Mango-A-Go-Go for a fraction of the price!

London Grammar's Pinhole Music Video

This music video is a photographic marvel! The scenes where people are frozen in time were shot with this really insane pinhole camera rig. Check out their Behind the Scenes (especially if you're a photographer/cinematographer).

I'm actually kind of feeling the song too.

It's Me, Gene!

Happy Arrested Development Premiere Day!!!!!

One of my favorite jokes on the show!
 We never thought it would come, but AT LAST season 4 is here!

With the advent of photo realistic rendering software, pixel art has kind of fell into the "outdated zone." Which is really a travesty because pixel art is some of the most amazing computer generated art I've ever seen!! Seriously, I don't think pixel artists get the respect they deserve for their creations.

Check out these AMAZING background scenes from millennium era video games. The DETAIL. God IS in the details. And I can't even lie, I never even paid attention to backgrounds when I played these games.

A moment of recognition for all the underrated pixel video game artists.

So I just found out about this website called It's basically a form of social media where you go and listen to music with other people. You take turns DJ-ing and people can vote on whether or not they like the song you chose. Oh, and you can also earn points to unlock different avatars. There are rooms for all types of music, and you can even create your own room.

And yes, that screen shot is from me lurking in a Daft Punk room. Typical I know.

Normally I Hate Running but...

THIS looks amazing! So if you live in any of these places, I'm incredibly jealous and Electric Run organizers...let's make New Orleans happen? If there are house remixes of brass bands the city would flock in droves.
