Just one of many excellent parts in this piece by Tom Ewing (which is only a little bit about Tumblr.)
(The piece is about Marvel fandom, though that’s not apparent from this quote.)

DON’T CLICK ON IT someone of something is hacking tumblr so I’d probably advise everyone to change their passwords or something idk i’m not a computer person but DON’T CLICK! You’ll get an ad for an anti-virus or something but I saw a friend of mine post the same thing, and a few hours later she said her account got deleted.

“The 24 Most Melodramatic Pieces Of Yahoo/Tumblr Fanart” should be enough to make you question if you’re really that angry about this buyout, when you see how many people are far angrier than you.
so when I shop I always stop and ask myself “where am I going to wear this”
and thanks to you people the voice in the back of my mind answered “to the function”
thanks a lot tumblr for ruining my life
Things that DON’T make you special or unique in anyway:
- Liking classic rock.
- Drinking tea.
- Watching classic movies.
- Taking “artistic” photos.
- Preferring old rockstars over guys your own age.
- Preferring skinny pale guys over muscular tan guys.
- Being shy, “awkward” or “socially anxious”.
- Not wanting to be feminine.
- Preferring to be indoors.
And like, parts of the city in my case are where all my Asian friends live, my Desi friends live in another part, the Africans in another, and so forth.
And occasionally I get to visit each part of the city and learn new things that perhaps aren’t so new.
I’ve learned more from my follows on Tumblr than I have in any schooling I’ve had my whole life.
Thank you, guys…for just…being.
you what I like about Tumblr? it really exposes you to a lot of different people and their identifies and stuff that you probably wouldn’t have heard of otherwise. Like I grew up in an almost all black neighborhood so I had almost no contact with people that wasn’t black and now I can met and get to know Desi people, and Asian Americans, and Taino people and people without genders, and trans* people and we can get together and laugh at the same things and learn about the struggles and triumphs of different people and drool over boy band members and it really brings people together that might not have had the chance to met.
Beyonce & Kim Kardashian phone call
When she called her “Kimberly” tho lmao
tumblr taught me that anytime someone describes themselves as ‘opinionated’ they’re probably about to be an asshole
I they’re not about to be an asshole then thy probably just got done being an asshole
You have until Tuesday 19th before that shit is officially old.
Come Wednesday it’s time to find something new to giggle about. I know it’s ripe material but it’s time to move on.
