    Great article and another example of the serendipitous interconnections of the ‘net (and, ironically, old school media, reading the analog article as I am at my kitchen counter-top) – had no idea you existed (how is that possible?!), but so glad to have found the space now. Kudos on this brilliant contribution to the arts.

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December


Thanks to every single one of you who submitted work to the November Reader Submissions post, it’s really cool to see all the talent in this community!

For those of you who are new, these posts are the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other helps me see what work you like really pumps people up. I encourage you to do both! These posts get a lot of traffic so even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen by many (and definitely sends traffic to your own websites).

Please share your work here this month by leaving a comment below. The commenting system allows images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.


Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.

Hilarious Hack of the Day: The Secret Selfie Stick aka Really Long Arm


For anyone who finds selfie sticks too embarrassing to use in public, a guy named Mansun has come up with a solution. Made with two right hands ordered off Amazon (naturally), two original selfie sticks, and a shirt with extremely long sleeves, Mansun’s hack certainly addresses one problem. (Of course, he may have just created another).

Click here for a more detailed account of his process. More hilarious images below, love the shot of the shirt sleeves!
