Do you have one of those friends who is so enamoured with their baby that they post countless photos of the dear child on Facebook every second minute of the day? You don’t want to block or unfriend them. That would be rude. You just want a little break from the endless stream of bubba photos cluttering your feed.
Well, Unbaby.me is the answer to all your prayers. When you use Unbaby.me, it replaces all the baby photos in your Facebook feed with cats!
If you don’t like cats, don’t worry. You can replace the baby images with anything you want. Like images of Jon Bon Jovi. I tried it. Hilarious.
It only works on your Chrome browser and uses keywords (which you can change too). So if you have a friend who regular posts “OMG look at what Jack did today!”, add that to the keywords and every time it appears, it will be replaced with a picture of a cat. Or Jon Bon Jovi.
Reading: Eden Riley’s post “Who are the people in your neighbourhood?”
Eden’s recent post was written on her trip to New York for BlogHer12 (for the uninitiated, it’s a mammoth blogging conference with 5000 women – yeah, possibly empowering and noisy at the same time). It’s a profound and moving account of the people she met during her stay. But it wasn’t about star-spotting in Central Park or hanging out at 30Rock. This brief but powerful post was about the homeless guy on the street, the maid who cleaned her room, the woman begging in downtown Manhattan and the guy who scavenges for rubbish in order to survive.
Eden was the national winner of our Best Australian Blogs Competition for 2012. She has a lyrical way with words that can cut right to the core.
Excited by: our student successes
I opened this month’s marie claire to find three stories written by Sydney Writers’ Centre alumni Kelly Exeter and Cassy Small (who was fortunate to have two articles published).
No sooner had I done that when I turned the pages of Good Weekend to find a wonderful “2 of Us” by alumnus Stephanie Hunt. Congratulations to all and I’m so thrilled for you.
Can’t wait for: Les Miserables starring Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe
I’m a musical theatre tragic so I can’t wait for Les Mis to hit the big screens. Hugh Jackman plays Jean Valjean, Anne Hathway is Fantine, Amanda Seyfried is Cosette and Russel Crowe plays Javert. While I doubt that anyone in the world can portray a better Javert than the amazing Philip Quast, if the trailer is anything to go by, I’m going to love the movie.
