Everyone, I’m elated to tell you that Tumblr will be joining Yahoo.
Before touching on how awesome this is, let me try to allay any concerns: We’re not turning purple. Our headquarters isn’t moving. Our team isn’t changing. Our roadmap isn’t changing. And our mission – to empower creators to…
I just heard about this on NPR. I’m pretty unhappy with it. I will probably be leaving Tumblr.
“My version of paleo goes beyond food (though that’s a vital piece of it), beyond exercise (also important), beyond every-day life. It’s part of a larger narrative that connects these things with the rest of life, culture, and thought. Yes, it’s connected to how I exercise and the shoes I wear, but also to how I think about things and make decisions about where and how to spend my time (and money). It’s all connected.”
Oh man this song takes me back. It was very important to my 10-year-old self. I knew all the lyrics in Spanish, too. Because I had the single on a tape and the other side was the Spanish version. I wish this would go all retro-viral.
Looking back, this could have sparked, or at least reified, my love for self-referential, self-parodic humor. It is clearly a joke(disguised as or including a wider critique), and yet there’s an honesty here, too. Like a megalomaniac admitting they’re a little self-centered, or making fun of self-centered people in general. Do they say it out of truth or is it a bluff? Some of both? It really blurs the line between joke and truth—showing us that that line doesn’t always exist.
Am I being jokingly overly-academic about this or am I truly this pedantic? (Or both?)

It was all true. But we made it out alive. And o what stories we have to tell.
“Ms Rowling, let’s talk about my name. Cho Chang. Cho and Chang are both last names; they’re both Korean last names. I’m supposed to be Chinese. Me being named Cho Chang is like a Frenchman being named Garcia Sanchez.”
