First, I love Tumblr and want to keep loving it. And yes, it is immediately terrifying to hear that Yahoo (which, from a lot of our perspectives, is a laughably backwards and culturally irrelevant company) is going to own Tumblr. I sympathize.
But there are a number of circumstances in which…
I guess I pretty much concur with this. It may be relevant to your interests too, fellow Tumblr user.
What, no gluten-free cake?
A single-serving Tumblr I just started where I’ll attempt to feature a new Malcolm Tucker insult every day.
Pfft… Who says I don’t like anything?
(FYI #26,000 was this one)
Other things you could have done in the time it took Clinton to deliver his speech:
- Walk from one side of Charlotte to the other
- Get through half a game of Settlers of Catan
- Microwave and eat a pack of hotdogs, one at a time
- Metabolize one beer
- Get halfway through a sleep cycle
- Read 12 pages of Proust
- Watch Gangnam Style 11 times
- Learn esperanto
Because reading 12 pages of Proust is so much more important than understanding how badly the GOP has fucked the country, and how hard Obama is working to unfuck it in the face of unified GOP opposition in both at every level of government.
Jesus Christ, media. If you spent as much time informing people about things that matter as you do on pointless shit like this and reality TV, we’d probably have a working, functioning democracy in America.

Dude, srsly. This was kind of insulting.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT EVERY SINGLE MICROSECOND THAT HAPPENED ON BREAKING BAD LAST NIGHT!
BECAUSE OF COURSE EVERYBODY ONLY EVER CONSUMES THE SAME CULTURE THAT YOU DO AT THE SAME TIME!
Yeah, I’m sure it’s a perfect show (that I will certainly enjoy in the not-too-distant-future, when you’ve all stopped collectively soiling your Huggies over it), but I am so damn glad to be out of that fucking undertow for yet another season.
Just adding a little extension, and who should I spot in the screenshot but my pal Travors! U R SO FAMUSS!
UPDATE: “Please don’t download this or our lawyers won’t let us host audio” is the hidden message in the non-functioning download link.
OH TUMBLR, Y U SO CRAZY?
Look forward to actually being able to get a heart on for your posts today while I’m TGIFing.
Yup. Definitely struck a nerve.
(And yes, I am aware that by bitching about this I’ve probably screwed myself out of any potential Tumblr writing gig. But hey, I alienate more potential employers by noon than most of people do all day!)
