Things That Look Like Other Things RSS

Background: "That contrast is embedded in things that look like other things, and its curious appeal suggests something about one of the great conundrums of consumer behavior, or possibly even of human psychology: our attraction to the novel and our seemingly contradictory attraction to the familiar."

This project brought to you by Consumed/Rob Walker.

Important announcement about Things That Look Like Other Things!

Hello friends of Things That Look Like Other Things,

Posts on this Tumblr have slowed down, as you may have noticed. Now they are coming to a stop!

That’s because of another Tumblr I’m involved in: Procrastinaut.

Things that Look Like Other Things has become a category there, interspersed with a wide array of tech, design, GIF-y, artistic, and simply amusing delights hand-selected to provide readers with the most pleasing alternative to whatever they are supposed to be doing. 

So, for Things That Look Like Other Things and more, please follow Procrastinaut!

Thank you,

TTLOT Management Committee.
