The Hill-Side hops on the animated GIF bandwagon with wonderful results in its animated Spring/Summer 2013 lookbook. Here's just one of our faves. You'll find even more at the Hill-Side's Tumblr.

The animated GIFs posted to the Rrrrrrrroll Tumblr seem to exist in the same meditative state. Characters and objects spin seamlessly on a single axis against a static setting, typically with an intense focus and a deadpan expression. Although there's no context provided for the images, it's tough to not project ideas about indecision or dissatisfaction watching a figure rotate endlessly staring at a plate of food or shopping in a store.
