dpstyles: “So, why am I writing about all this now? Well, my friend Jeremiah Moss wrote up a post on Vanishing New York yesterday, and dropped it onto my Facebook timeline with the question, “Is your heart still beating?” According to Jeremiah’s piece, Bleecker Bob’s is soon to become a —- WAIT FOR IT — Starbuck’s. … Enjoy your grande frappuccinos, you fuckers.” —Flaming Pablum: Farewell to...
re: disorganized mess
isabelthespy: for all i think of my tumblr as me vomiting my feelings all over the internet, i actually don’t think i wrote a ton of personal stuff here until the day i decided to drop out of harvard. and that was kind of necessity-born too, but in a different way.

isabelthespy: it’s a funny line, but actually the oldest still-standing building in harvard yard was built in 1720 - i remembered that it wasn’t as old as harvard, i had to google the date.

isabelthespy: i mean most english classes i took at harvard, we got some kind of handout with a bunch of basic guidelines which were pretty useless to anyone who had taken an english class before. anyway. the second time around wasn’t any better - i think maybe i cried even more because it was on macbeth and i hated macbeth.
this is actually a problem i have
isabelthespy: i’m talking about the fact that this is just my instinct, it’s just the way i am, i can’t even blame it on harvard because i’ve always been that way.

nedhepburn: This is an album for a girl breaking up with a boyfriend for the first time. This is the album that they put on. Later, they will mature, but for now, this is perfect for them.
nedhepburn: What, do you think you’re too good for Chipotle? It’s a thing. You put it in your mouth and eat it, goddamit.
nedhepburn: It’s as if someone was trying to make a Lana Del Sandwich, or in this album’s case, a Sadwich.
nedhepburn: And somehow, people drifted to different parts of the globe and settled and now we’ve pretty much filled out the whole planet except for the oceans but that’ll probably happen sooner or later
nedhepburn: And then there were smart people.
nedhepburn: Fucking dinosaurs! Think about it!

ninety9: “They could hire 3,000 people overnight,” said Jennifer Rigoni, who was Apple’s worldwide supply demand manager until 2010, but declined to discuss specifics of her work. “What U.S. plant can find 3,000 people overnight and convince them to live in dorms?” It would be nice to cross-reference this article with the dust-up a couple weeks ago about how hard it is to be an engineer at a...
writersroutines: Ned Hepburn has worked with/for Interview, Black Book, Vice, MTV news, Thought Catalog, Bust, National Geographic Channel. I wrote to him and asked how he got started as a freelance writer and what’s his writing routine. He wrote back to me! “Right now, not many people are paying for writing, which is terrible. But the doors are wide open, as long as you don’t mind the shitty...
Am I A Troll?
A few days ago, I retweeted the same Childish Gambino lyrics from about twenty different people, twenty times. The line is roughly, “Eating oreos like the white girls that blow me.” I meant to retweet them over at @WhitePowerMilk, but (happily) accidentally put them on my personal account. I think that’s how this conversation got started about retweet curation, twitter as...

inhalefumes: … you almost feel like ‘this is how a heartache feels like’ and then it suddenly turns into relief. I just had one. Thought something happened; even though, logically I knew his phone would more than likely be cut off. But I started to worry until I hear his ringtone cut in and I cried in relief. An emotion of relief came over and I just kept crying because I thought something...
