Best of Instagram: Week 23

It’s been way too long since I did one of these! Here’s this week’s Best of Instagram post. As always, I am trying to feature photographers with smaller followings and making a conscious effort to feature photography that isn’t the heavily filtered style that has become synonymous with Instagram.

If you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post, hashtag your photos #onbooooooom. You can also leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!

Convert Any Image Into A Million Emojis

If you are bored at work right now, this is relevant. You can now convert any image into a million emojis thanks to Eric Andrew Lewis, a web developer for The New York Times, who just released Emoji Mosaic. I “created” these emoji versions of classic artworks and it was fun for about 10 seconds. Is it pointless and dumb? Yes. But are you gonna try it out with one of the hundred selfies on your phone right now? That’s what I thought.

6 Unrelated Podcasts to Listen to While You Work

phillamarrImage via I Was There Too podcast

I’m always looking for things to listen to while I work, so I thought I’d share a few podcasts that I’ve been enjoying lately. Hopefully there will be a couple you haven’t heard before!

I’ve been an avid listener of shows like Radiolab (is the show less interesting now or is it just me?) and This American Life (my favourite story is from “Tough Room” the peek at joke-writing for The Onion, and my favourite episode was definitely “Retraction” where Ira grills Mike Daisey for lying about his trip to the Apple factory).

I also have to mention that Mark Maron’s WTF episode with Louis C.K. is easily my favourite episode of any podcast. If you haven’t heard it, it’s on youtube, the two talk very openly and honestly about why they aren’t close friends anymore. It is amazing.

Okay, have a listen to these 6 completely unrelated podcasts below covering everything from art, design, voyeurism, skateboarding, Pulp Fiction, and Facebook drama. If you have recommendations for others to check out please leave a comment – I’d love to listen to them.
