Average tumblr user be like “The grueling experience of being perceived…” *overshares*
if i’m going to be perceived i might as well overwhelm you
The only reply I’ll acknowledge.
“walking around your room in circles talking to yourself pretending you’re a youtube video essayist/guest star on a talk show presenting and discussing your niche interests and opinions” moodboard
This is so specific and and yet i feel it in every bone in my body
what are like,,,,,, peripheral fandoms you guys know about by default?? like things you’ve never interacted with but are on your dash so much that you feel like you know more about them than you should
mine are the owl house and gideon the ninth
some dumbass on here with a hubris of intergalactic proportions is gonna paywall a loki gifset and it’ll take disney exactly 23 seconds to shut down tumblr forever with no warning. we’ll all be left in scattered post-apocalyptic digital communities of people we keep in touch with outside of this hellsite, picking our way through the wreckage. grieving the loss of years and years of content, whether carefully curated and tagged, or a wild, eclectic delightful stream. trying to adjust emotionally to the reality of completely homogenized, virtually interchangeable social media platforms. failing. asking ourselves again and again, senselessly, ‘where am i supposed to go for depressed gay shitposting now, fucking twitter??’ with only fading echoes for an answer.
i know this please help me
if you seek skeek at my slorse you hate me at my worst
HOW THE FUCK DOES THE SYAING GO

SILLY LARRY AND THE FLOATING PUSSY
Alright, so tumblr staff is acting like as if we tumblr users have enough money to pay other tumblr users.
tumblr forgets that their user base is basically just a bunch of alley rats huddled around a slice of cheese
please read and rb!!
a friend of mine is up for the People’s Choice Award for the Royal Academy of Art’s Young Artists’ Summer Show!
Jasper’s piece (shown above) is called “Jamaican Journey” and this is his comment on it:
“My artwork is inspired by the quote “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots,” by Marcus Garvey. Reflecting on the importance of my family’s history, origin and culture has always been important to me, and I created this artwork to communicate these ideas about our individual heritage and origin. The portrait is of my mother, who was born and raised in Jamaica before moving to the UK in her early 20s. I used an old map of Jamaica layered over with vibrant colours and patterns and combined with delicate and detailed brushstrokes to bring my mother’s journey to canvas. For me this portrait is my way of expressing and reflecting on my mother’s origin and unique journey in life, as well as the culture of Jamaica that I know so well.”
you can vote for his piece here! voting is open until August 31st 2021 and I believe anyone can vote!
give me money to see the content
alright that means there’s at least two with this feature but this guy’s on tumblr staff. so until i see evidence as to otherwise i think we can conclude that tumblr gave a controversial and widely despised feature solely to one blogger to let them take the hit for it before they roll it out on a wider scale
yeah this does seem to be the case. what an absolute psycho move
slowly disintegrating friendships are like. i miss you. i love you. i wish so many good things for you. i wish for all the love u can get. i wish i was eating chaat with u rn. i hope we never meet again.
Yes I would do anything for you. No I can’t hold eye contact with you. I wish you goodness but I can’t be around to see it. I want you to miss me like I miss you. I love how you know me. I hate how you know me. I wonder if we’re thinking about each other at the same time. When did we become a thing of the past. Why are all of our memories from so long ago, why is our history the only thing we have in common. Your happiness heals. Your happiness hurts. I love you. I resent you.
i love being a historian dating a lesbian librarian and getting texts like this:
Fuck all romance except whatever this is
[image: two received texts. the first is an image of a black cat carrying a fish that is possibly bigger than the cat. the second points at the cat photo and says “me bringing u sources”.]
do you ever think about how if you dive into the ocean and go deeper and deeper you will pass through layers of darker and darker blue until everything is black and cold and the pressure will be so intense that it will kill you without protection but if you keep going you will find little glowing specks of light, and if you go up into the sky and go higher and higher you will pass through layers of darker and darker blue until everything is black and cold and the pressure will be so intense that it will kill you without protection but if you keep going you will find little glowing specks of light
sometimes a post makes you get out of bed at 230am to spend a quick hour on something like this
I was telling my best friend that when I was a kid, I used to love watching Avril Lavigne on MTV. He then laughed in my face and called me old. I’m only a year older than him
Jokes aside, the differences in our childhoods are fascinating considering how small our age gap is. He was born in 2003 and I was born in 2002. We grew up in the same city, going to the same school, without major socioeconomic factors setting us apart.
And yet, our senses of pop culture, particularly regarding the 2000s, is extremely different. When I think of the biggest hits of my childhood, I think of Hollaback Girl, I Gotta Feeling, and lots of Avril Lavigne sins. I remember when Katy Perry and Lady Gaga were getting popular 2008ish, and watching their music videos drop on YouTube. I watched lots of MTV because it was one of the only channels at my grandma’s house, and I remember watching the MVs for Misery Business by Paramore, Teenagers by MCR, Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne.. which to him sounds RIDICULOUS. He’s never seen MTV, doesn’t remember Katy Perry and Lady Gaga much, and has no memory of the late 2000s pop punk scene. The first time he listened to Hollaback Girl was LAST YEAR when I played it for him.
The only thing we seem to have in common is that we both used to go to Blockbuster with our dads lol.
Meanwhile, my girlfriend (b. 1999) and my friend Júlia (b. 2000) have identical childhoods to me. We all have the same pop culture references, and there’s nothing that my girlfriend remembers that I don’t, even though she’s 3 years older.
Wtf happened between 2002 and 2003 lmao?
I totally agree! My best friend (the 2003 kid) and I were both only children, but I used to hang out A LOT with my cousin and my aunt, who are both millennials. My aunt was the person who first showed me a Lady Gaga video back in 2008 and my cousin was the one who used to put on MTV! Maybe that’s why I am more aware of late millennial pop culture ahahaha
i had a similar experience!!! i had to repeat my last school year so i was with people who were 2-3 years younger than i was and i think they most confusing thing was that not a single person had ever even heard of neopets. like not even in theory. i was trying to explain flight rising and id go “yknow like neopets” and theyd be like “whats that?” and i felt ancient. like there were a ton of neopets commercials on tv and they remembered none of them! then again my sisters are millenials so maybe it really is exposure
Congrats on making good cinnamon buns and not dying!
