How to Take a Selfie


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch learned this week that not everybody knows what the term SELFIE means.

As with many other Internet-related terms that kids use these days, SELFIE is just a shortened version of the real phrase, SELF-PORTRAIT.

That’s cray-cray, right?  (because saying “cray cray” is so much easier and faster than saying “crazy”. Silly kids.)

So we’ve all seen those CELEBRITY SELFIE shots, usually leaked out on Twitter or TMZ. Some are good, some are reputation-ruining, and others are just so awful that you have to wonder what was going through the celeb’s mind – not when they took the picture, but when they thought it was good enough to release for the world to see.

Porn Actresses Without Makeup


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that women look best when they just awake in the morning, all tussled and rubbing that sleepy eye crud off their faces.

But fantasy women? That’s a different story.

At least one person sitting near you has a dirty picture on their phone


By web gangsta | Published:

Quick show of hands — how many of you have a dirty picture on your cell phone, right now?

Web Watch isn’t concerned whether it’s one that you’ve taken of yourself (selfies!) or one that was sent to you (sexted) from one we would hope would be a really close friend.

The question still stands – do you have a dirty picture on your phone, of anyone?

Everyone has a twin. Have you met your doppelganger?


By web gangsta | Published:

Everybody has a lookalike.

It’s one of the first rites of passage, from as soon as you’re born you’re instantly being compared to either your mother or your father.

“Oh, he looks just like YOU.”

“She has her mother’s nose, eyes.”

You can’t avoid the comparison – even as you get older people are always comparing you to celebrities they know.

Pictures of Couples Who Dress Alike, but aren’t twins. (Don’t be these people)


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s almost Halloween time, and that time of year when spouses everwhere dread those two awful words:

“Couples’ Costume”

You never want to be THAT couple at a Halloween party, where your costume depends on your spouse to be around in order to complete the picture.  You don’t want to be dressed as an electric plug, and not have your outlet nearby – if you know what we mean.

Fun with Photography: Water Wigs


By web gangsta | Published:

Men- are you going bald?  If so, what’s your plan?

Not every man can pull off a wig.  Web Watch knows some balding men that have either gone with the “short stubble” look, or completely shaved everything off.  At least in our circle of friends, we may have a few bare crowns, but there isn’t anyone that’s decided to do a complete comb-over like our grandparents would do.

One of our friends once contemplated getting hair plugs/grafts — at the time, he said it was a bargain for $11,000, and his girlfriend at the time really pushed for it.  But he had second thoughts and decided that he was going to work it out with what God intended him to have, hair or not.

Check out these Olympic Butts!


By web gangsta | Published:

Everybody knows why NBC has chosen to air what they are airing in their primetime coverage of the Olympics.

Sure, it may all be tape-delayed, but that doesn’t detract from the sheer spectacle of the sport.  Web Watch has been watching NBC’s coverage almost non-stop since the Games began, and even though we know (what seems like days in advance) what the outcomes of each competition happens to be, that doesn’t mean that we’re not enjoying what NBC has decided to showcase.

Let’s give it a rundown, shall we?

  • Gymnastics
  • Diving
  • Swimming
  • Beach Vollyball

And what do these four Olympic events have in common?

Pictures of Funny Looking Olympians


By web gangsta | Published:

Those Olympic athletes are the epitome of grace, talent, and pure athleticism.

But man, can they be funny looking.

And we’re not talking about the typical, run-of-the-mill person-in-the-next-cubicle funny-looking person.

No, we’re talking OMG, get a load of THAT!

More Disney Princess Cosplay at Comic-Con


By web gangsta | Published:

For the past few years, Web Watch has pointed out the sheer joy that SOME DISNEY PRINCESS FANS get by dressing up as their FAVORITE DISNEY PRINCESS character at the annual ComicCon convention in San Diego.

Oh yeah, and did we mention that they were dressed as their favorite SEXY DISNEY PRINCESS?

Thought we’d point that out.

Men like to check out other men’s junk. Women don’t.


By web gangsta | Published:

In advertising and when designing websites, lots of research goes into determining exactly how to place specific items onto the page, photo, advertisement in order to determine the best layout.

Stores do this physically, by putting high-demand items (such as milk or perishables) towards the back of the store.  Walt Disney did this when he decided that his new theme park needed a “weenie” in the center of the park to act as a magnet, ultimately drawing visitors towards the Castle that’s become a centerpiece of each of the Disney parks to date.

So while it’s easy to determine traffic patterns when people are walking around, how to businesses determine what makes a good print or online layout?

Disney Princesses in Real Life, a photo essay


By web gangsta | Published:

Jirka Väätäinen is a Finnish design student at Bournemouth, and he wants to be very clear that his name is pronounced “Yirka”, not “Jerk-a”.

Web Watch has no reason to quibble with him on this, as he’s doing some phenomenal work on RE-IMAGINING DISNEY PRINCESSES as if they were real-life people.

Sure, we’ve seen some other examples of this with live models, but Jirka is taking a slightly different approach on this with his photo-realistic, manipulations that are designed to showcase what the Disney Princess would look like as an actual person.

Not a cartoon caricature, but really-for-real people.

Let’s take a quick look…

Where was that album cover photo taken?


By web gangsta | Published:

You have a large collection of CDs and albums, right?

And you’ve spent many a night, listening to album after album while studying those album and CD covers for inspiration of what the band was feeling like at the time the album was made.

You know, so you could really connect with the band, the same way that music was connecting with you.

It’s true: Men can tell when a woman is having her period, just by listening to her

Period.: A Girl’s Guide

If there’s one thing that men have learned over the years, it’s that women can be moody once in a while.

And we all know what one of those causes of mood swings can be, don’t we?  Yes, yes we do.

But there is something that scientists have discovered that can help men avoid being in the line of fire when that moody time comes around… and it’s not nearly as complicated as keeping a diary of their own to document those moments.
