LOL of the Day: Guy Plays Music to the Exact Tune of Angry Grandpa Yelling and Destroying PS4

angrygrandpaps4-mononeon

After I shared this EPIC VIDEO, a member of our Facebook group Pedro Piccinini (thank you sir!) pointed me to this glorious Instagram account: @theMonoNeon. Dywane MonoNeon Thomas Jr. plays music to the exact tune of random internet videos, everything from stand up comedy sets to scenes from famous films. People like this are what I love most about the Internet.

To really get a sense for what I’m talking about watch this video of an angry grandpa destroying a PS4 accompanied by music from MonoNeon below.

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!

The Most Creative Skateboarding on Instagram: Daewon Song [10 Videos]

daewonsong

Daewon Song is a skateboard legend (and was pretty much already a legend when I was a kid) and yet somehow his Instagram is more fresh and creative than pretty much everyone else’s out there. I wouldn’t call this a top 10 because his entire feed is insane but here are 10 clips of the most creative skateboarding being shared to Instagram right now.

Included here are things like a 360 double flip on a board without wheels, bearings only, a late flip with the help of a friend, and some manual wizardry. Whether you are a skateboarder or not this is pure creative inspiration. Enjoy.

Instagram Show & Tell: Jennilee Marigomen shares her favourite image by Nguan

nguan

“Show & Tell” is an ongoing series where we invite talented people to highlight a work by someone they admire on Instagram. If you would like to be considered for this series, leave a comment below with a link to your own Instagram.

Vancouver-based photographer Jennilee Marigomen selected this image of Petra Collins by Singaporean photographer Nguan.

Jennilee writes: “What excites me about a photo the most is when unrelated things line up and make the entire image beautiful. The pink light in the room to the left, the framed (stunning) photo on the right, her outfit, the expression on her face, the blue wads of tape, and the complimentary colours and unusual composition that ties it all together. It looks like a film still from a few decades ago.”

Satisfying Instagram Account of the Day: Triangles Only

Gabriel-Kang-instagram-2

Gabriel Kang (@youwouldntbelievewho) wins the award for most satisfying Instagram account, especially when viewed as a grid. The Singapore-based photographer frames all of his images so as to form a right angle triangle at the bottom of the frame. It’s such a refreshing departure from the rest of my Instagram feed! More images below.

Weekend Wildlife

chillwildlife2

Thanks for all the support and the funny photos you’ve been sending me! @chillwildlife Instagram is 3 weeks old but it already has more than 5,000 followers! I have to admit uploading photos on there is the highlight of my day because animals are the best. If you have chill animal photos use #chillwildlife on Instagram, I’d love to see them.

Have a chill weekend everyone!

Instagram of the Day: @ChillWildlife

chillwildlife-instagram

Today I’m headed to Costa Rica for a little vacation, and so as a sort of “vacation project” I’ve started a new Instagram account @chillwildlife for my true passion, chill photos of animals. Follow it if you want at least one laugh per day (and if that’s all you want you’re setting the bar quite low, my friend).

Now I’m feeling weird about featuring my own account – actually, no I’m not. I’ve only been working on @chillwildlife for two days and it’s already my favourite thing to work on. I laughed pretty hard all day yesterday just thinking about it. If you want to submit funny images to it please @ me or use #chillwildlife but please for the love of God no meme pics with text on them. Thanks!

There will continue to be new posts on Booooooom while I’m away, and I’ll be back in a week or so.
