Gifs Of The Week #24

We made it through! The beautiful time of the year we call summer is finally there! The special pollen and grass forecasts issued by Meteo France and the RNSA (the French air pollution surveillance network) remain hopelessly in the red. Bring on the rainstorm and the big heat, and let that muck rot, dry and […]

Gifs Of The Week #23

It’s a nice and almost very sunny Sunday outside, but I’d rather doze before my dashboard and keep a watch on the newly hatched gifs popping up on my screen. I meant to say this week’s selection is placed under the label of cuddling, but turns out Britney S and Momoko’s gif truly is my […]

Gifs Of The Week #22

About ten days ago, Tumblr started to worry about the mobile version of our little babies. So, we can now change the aspect of our blogs through the mobile application, only… not that much. Apart from a cover image and a subtly colorful background, everybody gets lumbered with the same lame basic timeline, with infinite […]

Gifs Of The Week #21

This time I managed to write my weekly paper early. I have to leave Tumbler long enough to celebrate the union of two beings – whom I don’t even know – and take this blessed opportunity to boost my blood sugar level with the wedding cake, or whatever sweet treat will come my way. This was […]

Gifs Of The Week #20

I am quietly recovering from Le Tag’s fourth birthday bash at the Fap Club, sharing my time between gluten-and sugar-rich food, my duvet, and my www. My tumblr favorites clearly slowed down their gif pace – if still online – while 171.gif is about to secure a monopoly of all the animated pictures in the porn […]

Gifs Of The Week #19

I took my time to sort through the Internet gifs during the whole week. I rushed to the nearest cinema to watch The Canyons, featuring a slightly frozen Lindsay Lohan and a rather hyper James Deen. I’m still of two minds about seeing Her, but the cutie-face of mustached Joaquin Phoenix may well swing the […]

Gifs Of The Week #18

That was a real lousy week indeed. All the demons of the gif world joined forces to have me go through a heavy dose of hassle. I’d just enjoyed a very nice burger, and thought my gif hunt would be the best way to take up a lengthy digestion. That’s when drama strikes. Misery, emptiness, […]

Gifs Of The Week #17

This week promised to be rather calm on the Internet, but then, it wasn’t. Since Wednesday, panic had slimed onto my dashboard, newsfeeds, and infinite scrollbars, and spread the not necessarily dreaded virus of Valentines’ Day. This is also the moment fat-joke amateurs seize to post their homemade paint edits of porn stars, sitcom actors, […]

Gifs Of The Week #16

I had made my mind up about sealing this week with a good nosh, the kind of meal after which you just roll under the table in a burp. Once the deed was done, I’m sure you can imagine how deep my disappointment was when, waking up the next morning with a belly still full, […]

Gifs Of The Week #15

Another week, another gif selection, and, inevitably, I’m up for another hassle with the www. Scheming with the tags, the names of the actresses, and the pixel quality: my daily battle. Of course, since I’m aware everything is possible here below, in all imaginable shapes and sizes, I very seldom –i.e. almost never – give up. That […]

Gifs Of The Week #14

Today was a typical I-know-it’s-gonna-be-boring Day. After the gifs and the daily work — because, of course, weekend don’t mean there isn’t any —, given how dirty grey the sky looked the last time I ventured an eye out my dormer, and the lousy programming in the closest cinemas, I am most probably going to spend […]

Gifs Of The Week #13

Now that we have taken stock of 2013, time to turn toward the future. 2014 is here. I didn’t really make any resolutions for this commencing year, except to keep following my path through the Internet. I’ve been selecting gifs for more than six months now, and I intend on nurturing this column for a […]

Gifs Of The Week #12

Good evening you all! I hope you are enjoying a nice and cushy Sunday while I’m tinkling away on my computer looking for gifs. An occupation that’s like a small bubble of fresh air in a weekend that isn’t one. My only wish for the coming year is: may my Internet diversify and stop displaying […]

Gifs Of The Week #11

Christmas went by, and I received my share of presents from the Internet, despite a rather busy schedule. That said, I always take on this non-holiday period serenely since for me it is synonymous with dill salmon and peanut butter, since I’m really not into chocolate. My most gorgeous gifts will come from the movies, […]

Gifs Of The Week #10

This is a post written slightly early. When you will read those lines, I will probably be digesting the Sunday couscous, given the family reunion / winter holidays situation. This way I will be able to recover from the vivid emotions that have been shaking my poor little heart on the Internet. This week I […]

Gifs Of The Week #9

Once I’m done with my daily tumblr watch routine, I go hanging around the other Internet. Watching Lana Del Rey’s “Tropico” on Friday night certainly was my biggest mistake of the week. You’ve got all the tumblr culture in there: unicorns, Jesus, booty-shake, tattooed tears and albinos. Twenty-seven looong minutes, without any reference, or guiding […]

Gifs Of The Week #8

Sometimes Internet makes you search hard. It’s a shame, but you have to deal with it. To find good gifs, nice chicks, nice guys, dicks, tits, pussies (and I’ll stop there or else the list will never end), you need to look deeper into it. It’s like when you rummage through the Web for an […]

Gifs Of The Week #7

As Internet’s weirdest deliriums slide before my eyes, I sometimes come to think it must end here and now. But then I get a grip, because you cuties are still sensitive human beings and the mere fact that I am no longer one doesn’t mean I shouldn’t preserve you a little. Except we would pretty […]
