Want to See a Random Selfie?

Show Me A SelfieDaniel Blaser, friend of JD Beebe, and collaborator on projects like “Instead of Awesome” and the Hipstertest, is behind the new site showmeaselfie.com.

Blaser, in his own words, “realized how a simple selfie, decontextualized, actually has the power to spark a lot of questions and thoughts about the subject of the photo; why this pose? Where are they? Who did they expect to see this? Potential as a thought catalyst aside, there’s just something fun about seeing a randomly selfie one at a time.”

The site currently randomly generates a selfie from a database of 98 Instagram photos, but Blaser plans to update with new photo sets from time to time. It’s good for a quick chuckle, and saves you the trouble of sifting through Instagram for funny self-portraits. Check out the site for yourself, and let us know what you think of this continuation of the selfie trend in the comments section, if you’re so inclined.
