Humans are like. These occurrences are related and form an important pattern. And we do this constantly
If you ever see tumblr or twitter going into full moral panic mode about leather daddies at pride events again a game you can play is asking yourself how many days it will take before a popular “social justice” liberal blogger will post an image or a narrative that directly sources back to a far-right website. Last time this happened on tumblr it was like, 0 days, the moral panic started directly with images obtained from the neo-nazi website “The Daily Stormer”.
I do sometimes spare a thought for the MDZS Emperor and the regular reports he receives about how his ghostbusters have gone to war with each other again and are wiping out each other’s sects without his permission.
As a former band nerd, I can tell you that this instrument is finally being used as it should be :D
Also here’s a link to the entire song if you want it - there’s more silliness!
The slapstick guy is named Grant and according to a YouTube comment:
*gets a sunny day in february* ah……aH…..summer is here my love…i cant even remember what it was like being cold……
The growing rift between tumblr culture as practiced on this site & ‘tumblr culture’ as practiced by expats to twitter is a fascinating example of divergent species evolution when like a cliff or river separates groups
list of things that make a story good:
- a resurrection
- internalised homophobia
- elaborate descriptions of regional cuisine
- attractive antagonists
- raging at god
- recurring sisyphos motif
- characters’ crippling awareness of their existence within a narrative
Mentally we’re all pretty much here:
wei wuxian: i think i’m in love with lan zhan
jiang cheng, his eyes huge: you ABANDON jiang cheng? you push him aside like he is nothing?? oh! OH! JAIL for brother! jail for brother for ONE THOUSAND YEARS!
The Chrome browser exists to show you ads and track where you go so that Google can show you more ads. Please stop using Chrome. Firefox is open source, and while Mozilla is not perfect, it isn’t actively fucking evil the way Google is. It has a bazillion plugins, including various (FREE!) ad block plugins (I recommend uBlock Origins, which will even block YouTube ads – you can watch videos without interruptions again!). It will also function very effectively with a lot more tabs open than Chrome. I’ve got around 800 tabs open right now (not loaded, of course, except for maybe 2 dozen; it’s been a heavy browsing day), and my wife has between 2k and 3k at any time.
We are in the New Browser Wars. This time there’s a helluva lot of money up for grabs, because a lot of it is about running those ads. Monopolies are bad for consumers.
Just go download Firefox.
Firefox plugins I 100% recommend if you don’t want to be tracked (and want to cost corporations money)
AdNauseam is an adblocker that generates false clicks on the ads it blocks, which costs the corporations that pay for them money.
Privacy Possum messes with the tracking data collected about you, rendering it essentially useless
TrackMeNot generates random search terms across sites, meaning that any data collected about things you actually search is buried in a sea of random bullshit. Makes it very hard for people to figure out what you’re actually doing. You can block terms in the options, which means it won’t search for anything incriminating on your behalf (I think the word bomb is blocked by default)
WhatCampaign replaces tracking analytics used in website code with data that can’t be used to track you. I’m pretty sure it replaces it with “fuck off” by default.
I’m not adding links because tumblr will not show this up if I do, but you can search these on the Firefox addons site and they’ll come up.
