Matt is the only one who ‘gets’ Booty Jamz Friday.
[CORRECTION: Young Manhattanite previously stated that RENDIT DOT TUMBLR DOT COM is the only one who ‘gets’ Booty Jamz Friday. This statement failed in its overlooking of one of our associates who has clearly done “The Drop” before after a few too many just enough T & J’s Limeaide.]
/see that creator of the iconic blue New York coffee cup has died. Click article.
/It’s an old guy. Wonder if he’s Jewish. I’m now officially working.
/Check name. Leslie Buck. Inconclusive.
/Start skimming (carelessly; I miss the part where he’s referred to as “a refugee from Nazi Europe”).
/”home on Long Island, in Glen Cove.” Okay.
/”longtime resident of Syosset, N.Y., also had a home in Delray Beach, Fla.” Aha! Things are suddenly looking up.
/”Laszlo Büch was born on Sept. 20, 1922, to a Jewish family in Khust, then in Czechoslovakia. (It is today in Ukraine.) His parents were killed by the Nazis during World War II; Laszlo himself survived Auschwitz and Buchenwald.” Bingo. Flag article for link, maybe post tomorrow.
I enjoyed this post and hope to see more of this in the future.
If you’re looking for a way to unravel the mystery of finding some good people to follow on Tumblr, one thread to pull on is soupsoup.tumblr.com. Then check the sites that are reblogged. Kind of a one-stop shop for cool stuff.
I don't give a fuck what John Mayer has to say re: Twitter or Tumblr nor do I care that David Karp bust a nut over John's "endorsement" because both of those motherfuckers dropped N-bombs in failed attempts at humor and they both can eat my ass.
I have been saying this for AGES…just check out my first and second tweets. Twitter—as revolutionary a platform it is—isn’t enough. 140 characters is stifling, not only to personal expression, but to discourse as well. Sure, Twitter has some value: Its ability to disseminate news is pretty stellar, and it can connect the masses with those once considered “unreachable” (read: Celebrities, Politicians, and Corporations), but beyond that I’m at a loss for what Twitter does that Tumblr doesn’t. I can post from my phone, I can regurgitate content I consider valuable, and I can follow the people important to me. Terrible example, but Twitter is like a 5 piece chicken nugget from McDonalds, while Tumblr is like a Big Mac. I don’t think Tumblr is the be-all, end-all (sorry David), but I think it’s a giant step in the right direction. Tumblr is what social media should be: Intelligent, immediate and adaptable. Thanks for taking up the cause, JM.
