Popular blogs worth checking out for modern entertainment

A&E Opinion: As blogs gain popularity and begin to emerge as one of the main sources of entertainment on the internet, here is a crash-course guide about which ones you should be sure to check out and follow on Tumblr (both a blogging platform and social networking site).



#WHATSHOULDWECALLME is the ultimate home of video “memes” on the Internet. In this sense, a “meme” describes a picture or video accompanied by words that is shared between people online, intended to be funny. This site takes short videos (typically relating to pop-culture) accompanied by words to illustrate humorous aspects of everyday life. The material here is witty and honest, rarely recycled, and sure to make any visitor laugh at least once. It has inspired countless spin-off sites.


Literally Unbelievable

“Literally Unbelievable” has gained great acclaim as being one of the funniest blogs out there. It features real reactions by people on Facebook who read satirical articles written by The Onion and don’t realize that it isn’t a news publication, but rather a source of political and social commentary and humor. Gullibility at its finest.


Kim Jong-Il Looking at Things

This is exactly what it sounds like: a blog dedicated to real pictures of Kim Jong-Il, former North Korean “supreme leader,” looking at things. It’s unclear as to how these photos have been obtained or why there are so many. It’s difficult to avoid laughing out loud.


Fashion Is Art

This blog is a conglomeration of photos, short video, and literature song, and movie quotes. Both beautiful and inspiring, it’s simply nice to look at. “Stream of consciousness” is probably the best way to sum it up.


Suri’s Burn Book

This is the fake burn book of Suri Cruise. It features large paparazzi photos of other child celebrities accompanied by her biting commentary. All of the content is current, which is always a plus. She typically comments on other child celebrities, she always delivers hilarious, scathing remarks. If you’re not into celebrities, stay clear.
