Pretentious Instagram Photos Get A Facelift

Morning dudes,

Anyone who follows Steve or I on twitter will know that we (well I mostly) are totally devoted to Instagram. If you’ve not come across it before, Instagram is basically twitter for photographs: you snap stuff, stick a filter on it and post it for your followers to see. The site has exploded since launching seven months ago and now boasts 4.25 million users. It has however become somewhat infamous for the number of over filtered (dare I say ‘pretentious’) shots that crop up on there. Well, as is the way with such things, it was only a matter of time before the internet decided to take action. Starting on tumblr  a trend has emerged in the last few months of taking said photos and amending them slightly with the aid of a bit of red text. Enjoy:

I’ll never filter with a clear conscience again,

Chameleon vs iPhone – It’s on!

Steve got his first iPhone the other week. Apparently the sight of me constantly tweeting and instagramming at conventions has finally proven too much for his iron like resolves…or it could just be because he loves Angry Birds with a frankly terrifying passion. Either way he’s now one of us and I find myself one step closer on my quest to make him read digital comics. So far, aside from some rampant sabotaging by Ryan Brannon of Cold Callers, he seems to be enjoying his new toy, but I wanted to take a chance to warn him of a key safety point that isn’t covered in the woefully thin instruction booklet:

Chameleons will mess yo phone up, son!

Beware Cold Callers bearing reptiles, Bunkerites.
