2011: The Year of Dubstep [infographic]

So who here is a fan of dubstep? I know you will probably hate me for saying this, but I’m not. Hate on me if you will, but dubstep isn’t my cup o’ tea. I can do techno, I enjoy a good techno, trance, house, hardcore whatever but dubstep’s WUBWUBWUBUWBUWUB is too much.

It seems to be a genre composed of one sound that is determined to outweigh the rest of the piece. I know you and I could have differing opinions on this, and we may have to just leave it at that.

The business side of dubstep is something I can believe in. Skrillex releases some of his work for free on the internet – that gets him brownie points. He also pulls in thousands of dollars when he packs a venue full of people to see a sight seen far too often in Starbucks: A guy with a laptop.

Dubstep may be a fad and be gone within two years, but there will always be those dubheads who WUBWUBWUB far into the future. [Via]

How to Spot a Douchebag [infographic]

December 29, 2011 |  by  |  Funny, Lifestyle  |  No Comments

Sup bro? Today Daily Infographic will be showing you how to sort out the douchebags from real people. I will start by admitting that I follow 3 of these 19 characteristics, and I’ll let you try to figure out which ones. (Hint: I hate pointless ‘cool-looking’ tattoos with no meaning.) If you only follow a few of these like me, I wouldn’t worry too much, you’re probably just borderline douche. However, If you follow more than 5 of these, people will most likely label you as a douchebag, and chances are you are one. But I’m not here to judge anyone. To all the douchebags out there reading: don’t worry brah, they’re just haters.

If you read this infographic and suddenly realize you’re a douchebag, don’t panic. There is a cure. True douchebags will never admit that they are douches, and if you simply admit to being a douchebag you are free from the disease. Who’s the douchiest douche? Post a comment below with your nomination and why. My nomination goes to Rick Perry. I will not comment on his political agenda, he simply has the best ‘douche face’. [Via]

The Designer’s Toolkit [infographic]

Computer users always have their preferred apps, products and brands, and most are fiercely loyal to said apps, products and brands. Take a look at the comments in the app store for an example of the fawning supporter and the enraged protestor. When I first got my Mac laptop (which now has a human name and is basically an extension of my arm), I spent hours researching the apps and products people use. Perhaps this analogy will only resonate with the Vogue-reading crowd out there, but it is the same idea as finding out what is in Natalie Portman’s make-up bag. If successful people swear by and application, I will probably hit “install” to see what the fuss is all about.

Today’s infographic takes you into the offices of 180 creative professionals to see what apps they have open. Small sample size notwithstanding, the results are educational. From word processing to storage to email– there are usually clear winners. I completely agree on Gmail, though I’ve never harbored much affection for Google Docs. What apps do you swear by and why?

Christmas Spirits [infographic]

One of my favorite parts of christmas is experimenting with festive holiday cocktails. Christmas parties are always packed with the regular beer and wine, but having a signature cocktail is a little more impressive. This infographic takes you around the world for some the signature christmas cocktails. Everyone seems just delicious to me, but that may mean something about my lifestyle. I would definitely go with a Gingerbread Sacrifice in Paris, Candy Cane Eggnog in New England and a Santa’s Stiff Hot Chocolate up in the North Pole.

These days, Pinterest allows us to find many delicious cocktail recipes at the drop of a hat. Each one is more original and unique than the rest. At a holiday party last week we tried out a holiday sangria, containing two bottles of wine, 5 cans of sprite, orange liquor (as much as you’d like, we put in a bunch), pomegranate seeds and lime slices. It was a huge, refreshing hit. Another christmas classic is a simple mulled wine, with two bottles of red wine, a juiced orange, cloves in the orange peel, cinnamon sticks and what ever spices you could imagine. Let that concoction sit for about an hour, mulling over heat on the stove, and you end up with a spiced drink that tastes just like christmas.

What are your favorite christmas cocktails?

Bikes Can Save Us! [infographic]

I don’t know about you but if I had to choose one alternative to cars it would without a doubt be a bicycle. Unfortunately, at the moment my bike is not in working condition as the result of being hit by a CAR! I was on the UT campus riding my bike, trying to both avoid being the cause of unnecessary emissions and working on getting in better shape, when I woman who admitted she didn’t see me so lovingly turned into me. It has been about a month since that happened and luckily my chin is back together; that’s right I cracked that (insert derogative noun here) windshield with my chin. However traumatic this event was I will not be deterred from riding bikes again, they are just too damn fun.

Today’s infographic, How Bikes Can Save Us, suggests that by switching from gas guzzling cars to fat burning bikes we can do more than help the planet, we can help ourselves. Isn’t that nice? We can be selfish while still helping out the planet that is nice enough to house even though we just shit all over it. Anyway enjoy today’s infographic and keep sharing! [via]
