OK, so this is gonna be a must-read: Rihanna’s label are flying one hundred press flacks to seven countries in seven days, on Rihanna’s tour plane, to document her album-launch press tour. Popjustice is one of those journalists, and they’re blogging about it. This is either a chance to do an AMAZING week of posts about the modern pop machine, OR it is a chance for Popjustice to do that thing where they skirt up to greatness and then get really, really lazy and don’t do anything with it under cover of being nonchalant. So, uh, don’t do that last one, and this is gonna work out great, guys.
HOW DID THIS NOT ALREADY CROSS MY DASHBOARD, YOU’RE ALL FUCKING FIRED.
A couple guys ahead of me in Greenberg are doing that no homo thing of leaving an empty seat in between them. In fucking Greenberg.
(PS. Spoiler alert! Ben Stiller’s character is actually Jennifer Jason Leigh.)
ARE YOU ACTUALLY POSTING TO TUMBLR FROM A MOVIE THEATRE WHILE THE MOVIE IS ON???
RE-EXAMINE YOUR LIFE CHOICES.
(Oh and thanks for spoiling Shutter Island for me earlier. Your justification for doing so was not at all inadequate!)
(And yes you are on the receiving end of my bitch gun today because somebody had to be.)
Sigh. The good things always end. Thank you for everything, Maura.
Dear Tumblr Friends*,
I’m hoping to self-publish the book Live Wrong and Prosper: Your Morals for A Million, partly because this game never gets old to me and partly because I have a backlog of hundreds and hundreds of questions I’m excited to share with the world. I’m using Kickstarter to raise the money for publishing costs, and I’m asking for your help; by donating anything you can – even, say, $1.00 (and every donation is much appreciated) – I can get this book made. Plus, you get rewards – prizes of sorts – for giving! If you’ve enjoyed the blog at all – and I really, really hope you have – I hope you’ll give whatever you can to help me complete the book.
To check out my Kickstarter page and watch me ask random strangers on the street some Live Wrong and Prosper questions (Note: Apparently, most people would NOT eat a bowl of their own shit for $1M) please visit http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/easylover/live-wrong-and-prosperthe-book.
I appreciate any help, including just reblogging this.
* We are friends, aren’t we?
This is a thing that everyone reading this should do.
You could get really upset and freaked out whenever Tumblr adds a service or feature you find weird.
Or you could just use the damn thing the same way you always did and disregard any and all bullshit that comes across your path.
Just sayin’. The “Create post” button still works, right? Cool. Let’s not shit bricks about our Tumblarity or our Tumbling-bling or our Tumbotron or whatever nonsense they wind up stapling onto a perfectly functional frame.
P.S. This same message applies to listening to / reacting to the idiotic ramblings of supposed “all-star” Tumblr people that — trust me, I know from experience — you can very easily choose to ignore completely while living a full and satisfying life.
Michael Kupperman is blogging now. Please delete all of your other bookmarks, you’re only going to need this one from here on out. (Kupperman is the creator of the almost unbearably funny SNAKE ‘N’ BACON’S CARTOON CABARET and TALES DESIGNED TO THRIZZLE. Yes, there are strip samples on the blog.)
Vicky, I think this guy might be right up your alley. Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe you don’t even have an alley, and maybe you don’t like things up it. But if you do, you should try this out and see how it feels.
OK, I know it’s considered deeply uncool to read anybody’s Tumblr from anywhere other than the Dashboard, but I’ve put a new theme on mine that I’m pretty happy with, although I’m still tweaking a few things. The most important bit is that I have gone through my archives and tagged pretty much every post, because I’m crazy. You may enjoy perusing the Suggested Topics list in the sidebar. This feels like a real blog now — which probably means I’ll lose interest in it in a couple of months! Yay!
Tagging all of my posts revealed to me that I still haven’t posted about dinosaurs as many times as I’ve posted about Sarah Palin, but we will get there, America.
