Twenty-six cool And unusual bed designs for your sleepy viewing pleasure.Twenty-six cool And unusual bed designs for your sleepy viewing pleasure.

My pillow-top bed is looking pretty boring compared to this list of non-boring beds by the folks over at coincidentally named BoringPanda.com. Sidenote: that may be one of the coolest domain names I've come across this year which is neither coincidental or boring. Mind blown.

Eight websites you need to stop building according to The Oatmeal.Eight websites you need to stop building according to The Oatmeal.

After carefully perusing this comic (and laughing a little bit too loud for office-level volumes) I was a little discomforted by the fact that the Pork'd mock design looks ridiculously similar to the current version of GLM. I guess I was a little generic with this iteration, might be time for a redesign methinks.

A showcase of blogs with unique post designs for your viewing pleasure.A showcase of blogs with unique post designs for your viewing pleasure.

It seems like these days everyone is using the same old blog template or the same tired Wordpress theme (although I've seen some pretty amazing Tumblr themes). Regardless, I'm a sucker for blogs that don't actually look like your average blog and stray from the formula. The end result is what some are calling a 'blogazine'. Enjoy.
