Emoji Shortcodes Now Available

As mentioned here, I thought it'd be great to support Slack-style emoji shortcodes.

This has been implemented and is now available.

Just use a colon followed by a shortcode followed by another colon, for example: 👍

As @newtboy requested, there is a 🤦 emoji and thousands of others, and as @ant requested, they are rendered as simple standard emoji characters.


If you hover over an emoji, you'll see the shortcode text that was used to create it.


The full list of emojis is available on the following page. Click the emojis you want and then copy them all to your clipboard by clicking the 📋 in the bottom-right corner, then just paste away!

LMFAHS - It's Official! (Blog Post)

The acronym I coined 2 years ago has finally made its way to the official pages of the urban dictionary. Yay!
Now everyone knows the secret.

The funny thing is I have actually caught myself literally using the phrase in real life and stopped myself to correct it with "laughing my ass off" because it seems it feels a little funny at first. Then you slowly ease into it.

To top it off I have a custom license plate being made for my car that reads:


I'll have to post a picture of that some time.

I finally got my new license plates:

VideoSift v6 (VS6) Beta Video Page

As the years have flown by and the Internet culture has continued to evolve, we, like ever before, want to keep nimble to continue making improvements so The Sift is still a place you will love to call home. ... more inside ...

Carbon Fiber Hammock Bathtub

Was perusing Homes and Hues (a new website by, VideoSift friend, Neatorama) and saw this really awesome carbon fiber bathtub that's, get this, shaped like a hammock.

The two ends hang on opposite walls, the faucet raises up from the floor, and there is a plug in the center directly above a drain in the floor. I would so love to be so impractical as to have an awesome tub like this, if even just to bathe my sons (because it looks like it'd be much easier than a standard tub since you can sit with your legs beneath it).

The only thing I'm wondering is where the knobs are to control the faucet. Anyway, go take a look at this and the other fascinating content:
