I like the way I look…I like the way I look…I like the way I look

ninetI like the internet. Nine times out of ten it tells me what I want to hear: “Oh Chris, your IQ is 160!” “Wow Chris, you beat this level so quickly!” “Don’t worry Chris, it’s just the common cold.” “Chris, you’re so strong and intelligent that I knew right away you were the person that could help get me and the rest of the royal family out of Nigeria safely!”

It’s a wonderful setup, really.

A few days ago, however, the internet told me something that I did not want to hear: “Chris, you’re so handsome…you look just like a female Israeli pop singer.” What…the…eff.

Now, if I’m being honest (and I always am), people have been telling me I look like an Asian person since at least my freshman year in college when the guy across the hall informed me that everyone in my super-weird, artsy, commune dorm at USC had started calling me “Anime Boy” because they didn’t know my real name and I looked like a character in whatever wacked out anime they were using to escape reality that week.

But until I used My Heritage’s celebrity collage tool, I had never been told that scientifically, I bear a 74% resemblance to Ninet Tayeb, the lovely Israeli pop singer whose picture appears up top. The celebrity collage tool also informed me that I bear a striking resemblance to the guy who was cast to play Goku in the upcoming live-action Dragonball Z movie, two Korean male models, a former member of N’Sync, a really lame singer-songwriter, a cracked-out child star, and Ferris Bueller.

Who will it say that you look like?

Give it a shot and let me know who you get. Don’t be dissuaded when it asks you to register; just put in a fake email address and skip the ads.

I like every meme that has ever existed

spaghetticat*cue Enya music*

One Site to rule them all,
One Site to find them,
One Site to bring them all
And in the darkness bind them.

I have found the One Site. It is powerful beyond all belief. (sentence completed at approx. 1:15 am)

(sentence begun at approx. 2:33 am) Okay, it’s so powerful that it just sidetracked me from writing this for a little over an hour. It’s late now and I should be sleeping. Here’s what I’ve got for you: a timeline of all (okay, most) of the internet memes from the beginning of the internet up until pretty recently. It’s amazing. I’m not going to spend much time telling you about it because I’m tired and I still have to take out my contacts.

Here’s the link: Internet Memes Timeline

And here are just two of the hundreds of videos on this timeline. I chose them because I love spaghetti cat.
