Screenplay idea: Man gets amnesia and reconstructs his life from blog comments he wrote. Short film -- he kills himself after 11 minutes.
David asks what features Tumblr should add, and a bjillion people answer. But no one requests more Tumblettes, so I will!
I thought you were done with them.

I just got the memo. Were we all supposed to comment on this? Curt going to bail, so I will do his part:
I enjoyed reading this post.

You "young" Manhattanites. Do I need to return to updating this for your daily amusement/abusement?

Holy shit, sex - I go on sabbatical, and the day I come back, I get a link from you? You're a sweetheart, and even more: you actually read me. Also, Katie - you'd marry Blair? Of course you would.

Well, let's be honest, I sent Fek's Kanye/Radiohead post to Rex this morning but he did link to the Flavorpill thing all on his own.
BTW, I didn't really intend for a YM flashmob here but hey, WHAT'S GOING ON EVERYBODY??

How was Cuba?
Or wherever you commies were.

Mississippi. Turns out it's still racist. Go figure. These people really do cling to their guns and Bibles, though to be fair, everything else washed away.

I'm such a commie I've swung back around the circle.

I think this should be YM's secret blog within a blog's comments section.

Fek darling, I'd rather marry you, but I can't even get a response to an email from your Owen-Wilson-at-the-end-of-Wedding-Crashers ass*. Blair would have at least ordered Dorota to Blackberry me a lil sumpin. Get Ryan Adams on the case.
*Yeah, I went there.

Carney, that's a good idea but Rex has a stoopid expiration window for comments on posts.
OK, that's probably a smart feature.

I got here via this post on Gawker.
Who are you people?

Oh, don't worry about us, clarabell. That via was just quid pro quo for Krucoff helpin a sistah out.

I have a sore back from trying to sleep in the house that Krucoff and Katie built.

As I angrily emailed La Rex last eve: NO! No more Tumblettes! I'm the lead off hitter of the Tumblettes and I'd like to keep it that way!

I'd find this both offensive and pathetic, but I don't read Rex's blog.

Kruc: The expiration on comments was there because I hadn't built a spam filter yet. Now that I have one, I should up the expiration time from a week...
And so I have. It's now 30 days.

And why is Sklar so much funnier than me?
Don't answer that.

Krucoff, my sink needs caulking. If you know what I mean.
posted by sac at 9:05 PM on October 28, 2008
Hell this is as good a time as any to ask if any one has seen Krucoff's brother around?
posted by malatron at 10:38 PM on October 28, 2008
I believe I am the only person I know who has never seen even one episode of Mad Men.

Is anybody still paying attention, here? It's like walking up to the party with kids already passed out on the lawn.
Katie, I only kind-of get the Wedding Crashers thing, but yeah: hiding is a nice place to be, though I did make it out to Denton's on Saturday night (where I was shocked to find a lack of anybody on this board). Where were you people? Was there some other-other party that night? Anyway, I slumped out of there in the third quarter when I got so drunk, I was too lazy to ash in Denton's nickel-plated standing ashtray; I just went for my glass of prosecco (yeah, there was a fucking abundance of it, there).
Anyway. I'm kind of back. Just keep the Tumblettes away from me, I guess. They all smell like cheap vodka and cheaper solipsism.
