GeneralSite to See: Kid Casting

 
Oh, Kid Casting. Just another reason to love the internet.
 

 
Why? Because as founder Dave Shumka writes, “You know when a movie has a flashback and you see the character as a kid? Sometimes that’s awesome.”
 

 
Some are cute, some are weird, funny, or remarkably similar (Once Upon a Time in America, whoa), and others, remarkably not. Either way, once you start looking, it’s pretty darn difficult to stop.
 


 
Another cool thing that happens: occcasionally you’ll recognize both actors, like Jennifer Connelly in Once Upon a Time in America (above), Camilla Belle as little Sandra Bullock, or even the annoying kid from those Santa Clause movies (just knew he had to make an appearance) as little Robert Downey, Jr.
 

 
And, because I just don’t feel like waiting ’til Thanksgiving to get into the holiday spirit:

GeneralTumblr Tuesdays


Right now, you may be questioning me on what exactly is a Tumblr.
Well, don’t you dare fret, I’m here for you. I’ll give you a brief explanation and then we’ll be on our way.

 
 
Tumblr is a short-form blog that allows you to to post text, images, videos, links, quotes, and audio to your blog as well as follow people and re-blog their posts. Tumblr brags to be one of the easiest forms of blogging (which I tend to agree with) and has beautiful layouts (or themes) that you can install in the blink of an eye. Many innovative blogs have sprouted from this new type of blogging and each week I hope to help your inspiration needs by posting a few of my favorite Tumblrs.
And off we go…..

Art: Eat. Sleep. Draw
 

 
Eat. Sleep. Draw. is an online art community with all original content, that excepts art from anyone, all you have to do is submit it. This site boasts an amazing collection of art, however some might be NSFW, so be careful.

Food: Scanwiches
 
 
 
Artful and delicious scans of sandwiches, both homemade and bought, can be found at Scanwiches. Supposedly for educational purposes, all I care about is this sandwich eye candy.

Celebrity: Donald Glover
 

 
You know him from his role as Troy Barnes in NBC hit Community. You probanly laughed as his jokes while he was writer for 30 Rock. But this self-proclaimed “black nerd” has a fantasic tumblr chalk full of his jokes, comics, art, fashion, food, and music. Even if you’ve never heard of him the content alone is worth following.

Comedy: F*Yeah Prancing Cera
 

 
Internet memes (aka a catchphrase or concept that spreads rapidly from person to person via the internet) all the the rage right now, but my favorite by far is the photo of Michael Cera prancing. F*Yeah Prancing Cera, is the central place to find the best memes of your favorite nerd-boy prancing away.
