I'm pretty sure Tumblr makes you stupid. [via -- reblogged!] See also: Tumblr is Second Life for people who dont realize they're losers.


However, brilliant:

"shes like that girl you met at a bar and then you go back to her place and shes got the Sex In The City boardgame, way too many candles, and liberally uses the words 'fleece and wholesome' in everyday conversation. i can kind of see why her and John Mayer are boning. it makes sense. its like a bad cough and a day old bagel hooking up."

I dig the tumblr interface, and like to think that my collection of oddities and factoids and images make for entertaining perusing, and it's a nice introduction to my meatier blog that serves as a creative outlet and draw for my business. It all depends on what the author does with tumblr, which can be vapid or deep depending on mindset (or drug intake).

Wait. I change my mind. Tumblr is genius.

As irony goes, the person who wrote "Tumblr is Second Life for people who don't realize they're losers" is the same one who BEGGED AND BEGGED to get YM on Tumblr after many protests on my part because that was, in essence, my original assessment of the service.

You know what he wants now? A group Twitter feed on YM. Now that is stupid. (And he has a bad memory because I tried that in the summer.)

I totally relate to this: "...returning to the computer after even a few hours feels like shoveling the driveway during a blizzard."

Cool thing is, it's REALLY easy to fix. Unfollow peeps. Which makes it clear that tumblr isn't actually the issue.

I love tumblr. I view it as a way for friends and family to keep up with my life. It's a quick, easy way for me to capture things I find interesting and catalogue my adventures in NYC. If people "follow" me or friends visit the site, fantastic, if not I could care less. I think there are too many negative people out there who have to over complicate everything.
