Meanwhile, Things That are Good About Tumblr:

- The sense that somewhere, out there, someone is reading, or at least gives enough of a shit to save your work in their "likes" for later reading. These are all illusions but hey they sustain me.

- Huge concentration of great writers who know each other and will nest reblogs until collapse, but fuck if it ain't totally absorbing. (It is also a center for completely unremarkable writers who are very popular, but WHATEVER, that is another list)

- As a music blogger, music posts are pretty much the most wonderful thing about Tumblr, for the relative ease in their execution compared to either Wordpress or Blogspot what with their media libraries where the devils reside.

Oh, and the ask function is pretty wonderful, I think, if only because I am allowed this sort of pleasure.

You ain't the conduit, you are the justification. Or the enabler. Or something.

It is also terribly easy to have a tumblr where you almost never engage in the conversational aspect and only post stupid pictures of your cat. If that's what you're into. My cat is Internet famous and has no idea.

The whole "exclusively posts pictures that meet an incredibly specific set of parameters" thing is kind of funny, but I guess Selleck Waterfall Sandwich guy ran out of material.

YES though bear bodies are more Hugos than Linuses.


Also there is a fuck ton of porn on tumblr but I've managed to avoid more than one or two naked people on my dash at any given time

I made a Tumblr.
I have gone for YEARS without having a facebook or a twitter or a blog or anything that woud give me any kind of internet footprint and now I have a Tumblr, and it is also primarily so I can read TSKS and BAoH, but I think I missed writing about stuff, so I might use it to try and write sentences about music that do not make me want to die. I like it so far, despite the bugginess, and I think it suits my current level of ADD. (cue someone somewhere going "you would.")
If you want to know where it is PM me. If a Tumblr is made and after three days no one follows it in the woods does it make a sound etc etc.

The only tumblr I have unfollowed on purpose was YOUR MIND BLOWN after they stopped blowing my mind by no longer posting facts. SOM has been close for two days. Way too many pages to go back to get to other stuff on the dashboard.

It is one of the greatest joys in my misspent early-to-mid adulthood, but it is inconvenient at times because even when you are on lunch which is technically when we are supposed to be interneting at work and you are giggling helplessly at a computer screen it looks kind of suspicious.

When I decided I was gonna get back into reading tumblr by RSS-ing people I follow, I at first RSS-ed Summer Of Megadeth. When they had posted 300 things within 24 hours, I took them off my RSS reader. That is too much to deal with.

Unless you're into petty irony and image macros I really don't think there's any reason to be following Tumblrs, jimbo.

A friend of mine has a tumblr I love, but she seems to have pretty much stopped updating it altogether.

I'm kind of a fan of petty irony, though of course image macros are balls mostly

but here is a tumblr for you, perhaps not of interest to many, chronicling the efforts of Chicagoans to save their parking spots after a snowstorm, a practice known locally as "dibs."

that space-reserving thing has always struck me as incredibly annoying, though I, of course, do not have to shovel anything.  is it widespread anywhere besides Chicago and South Boston?

regardless, I love that tumblr.

also, y'all should check out my newish Project Neon tumblr.  and if anyone wants to go on a neon visit with me, just say when/where.  http://projectneon.tumblr.com/

I didn't know anywhere else besides Boston did it!  I kind of love it, to be honest.

south philly! my lady got chewed out for parking in a "reserved" spot on her own block once, and there are chairs and cones everywhere marking territory after a snowstorm/shoveling.

and cool tumblr, mos. one of my favorite things about living in Chinatown is looking out my window at night down the neon-lit Race Street corridor.
