Anyone else feeling particularly distracted this lovely Friday afternoon? Well my short attention span is working to your benefit with a fresh offering of interweb diversions.

  1. Maybe it’s nerdy to get all excited about this announcement, but well, I’m kind of a nerd. Gmail now lets us customize not only theme colors but the background image as well!!! Whether you want to celebrate by decorating with leopard print, ice cream cones, your puppy, or jellyfish is up to you…I’m sure whatever you choose will beat the “bus stop” theme where Ben Franklin is hanging out with a giraffe (if that reference doesn’t ring a bell, you’re probably cooler than me). Hairpin gives the rundown of how to update. [The Hairpin - Gmail Just Got More Exciting]
  2. If you were too broke to afford Coachella tickets like I was, and too depressed about it to read festival-outfit blog posts saturating fashion sites this week — you better go find a sundress, a denim vest, and a straw fedora ASAP, because YouTube will be streaming select acts live from the crrrraziest music venue ever — your computer screen! Catch the details on Mashable. [Mashable - Watch Coachella Live on YouTube Starting Today]
  3. Yes! Santigold’s sophomore album is finally on the horizon and Jay Z’s Life + Times offers a first listen to her new track “GO”, a pretty energetic beat featuring Karen O of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, plus a short and sweet interview with Santigold herself. Shameless plug: we still have the Santigold x Vans Toshi Hi collab sneaker in stock! Buy it. [Life + Times - American Dreaming]
  4. I’m looking forward to check out the Bill Cunningham New York documentary examining the life of the original street style photographer. Watch the trailer, then make sure to see if it’s playing at a theater near you! [Zeitgeist Films - Bill Cunningham New York]
  5. And the diversion to end all diversions, the inspiration for this very blog post (and the start of the downward spiral in my productivity level), I am pleased to introduce to you: Cute Roulette! A source of endless entertainment. [Cute Roulette]
