young women holding koalas

are you awake at night wondering why there are so many damn photographs of young women cuddling koala bears in the world? if yes, then let me direct you to a little website known as specific things. while the question is never exactly answered, we do experience a gleeful range of bizarre and inexplicable photographic conventions. the site is made up of found images (and some texts too) that would never exactly catch your eye on their own...it is the accumulation of them that makes them so thrilling. from young women holding koalas to people dancing with glowsticks to dogpiles. huge thanks to the site's creator and all-around-great-guy asha for letting me post this here.
