The Internet can be a magical place of photographs, boards, pins, audio files, tumbles, tweets and vines. To make it even more magical, we’ve compiled a list of worthy Instagram, Pinterest, podcast, Tumblr, Twitter and Vine makers to follow.
RUBBLE & ROCK – (56, 445 followers)
If you were to line humans up and ask them what is the single most annoying thing on instagram they’d probably say FOOD PHOTOS (well, food photos AND selfies, but lets tackle one evil at a time). We’ve all done it, we’re all guilty as all internet hell of it, and we all need to improve in 2014 on it. So, I present to you Angela, a part-time fruit surgeon from Brooklyn who has done for instagram food photos what Richard Avedon has done for fashion photography. Sure it is like comparing apples and oranges and whatnot, but the comparison stands. The lesson: find your thing (even if it IS food instagrams). Find YOUR angle for your thing. DO IT WELL. No one will mind then, in fact, maybe YOU’LL END UP with 56, 445 followers. BONUS: All photos Iphone only. No cheating here.
BYT Mantras Board – (1,744 followers)
Ok, so I know this is kind of like cheating but we are in the depths of everyone being neck deep in resolution making and who better to motivate you than the INTERNET? Our Mantras board is chock-a-block full of slogans and images to get you through and make you feel better about any day and any situation. They are even there to get you through giving up on resolutions, if that’s what you’re in the mood for. The mantras don’t judge. DIG IN:
This one sorta got lost in the holiday shuffle. It followed the somewhat disappointing episode 450 with Will Ferrell (it’s not a bad episode, I just had high expectation and so did Maron, he mentions that in the intro) and was released mid-month. I listened to it the week between Christmas and New Year’s and it’s easily one of the best WTF’s of 2012. Smirnoff is a guy most of us know as a punchline, not a massively successful headliner that left communism to thrive in Branson. Highly recommended for both the alt comedy Maron fan and the dad comedy casino show fan.
The new year means new hope, a chance to explore positive futures. Things like weight loss and not getting fatter make us feel like everything is possible. Since Upworthy deals with the positive on a 365 day basis and that seems a little hard to do, the Upworthy: Springfield is here to make the sometimes absurdly positive just absurd. While the headlines are the crux of the site, the Upworthy inspired pointless pop-up polls make it a must-visit. -Brandon

Should I watch 'Don Jon' or punch myself dead in the face?

If I harnessed the power I used to find a Vicodin that skidded under my fridge into my daily life, I'd be dangerous.

Most people that I follow on vine I funny or creative. But I follow a couple people for whom I have a weird stalky obsession. Nate Powers tops the list. I started following him last spring when comic Peter Muth revined him. He does cutesy posts sometimes, but mostly sings, quite well, for his lady love. When she went to college in the fall I followed the arch of their long distance relationship, one that culminated last month in a proposal vine in front of 15k people. I have to say it was great to watch. -Andrew
