Apparently tumblr changed its tagging system so yes all your tags will now show up in searches rather than just the first 5 but they also fucked up a little because they made it work like a partial search as well now, meaning if you make a single tag called “star wars spoilers” the post will show up in searches for just the term “star wars” or just the words star, wars, war, spoiler or spoilers.
Years ago back when I worked in cubicle land, we were hiring junior software developers. They didn’t have to have a ton of experience, just a willingness to learn, and some demonstration of their software skills. Like: show me a program you wrote (any language) or a web site you designed. Anything.
And there was this one guy I talked with who seemed super sharp, but had virtually zero experience writing software. When it came time to do the show-n-tell part of the interview he whips out his laptop, brings up a website, and spins it around to show me what he made.
A website of tiny ceramic frogs.
Not for sale. Just… all these ceramic frogs, organized into categories. Frogs on bicycles, frogs with hats, frogs sitting on lily pads. It was a virtual museum of ceramic frogs in web form.
I scrolled through his online collection of frogs, slightly baffled.
“This is your website?” I asked finally.
“You coded this yourself?” I popped into view-source mode and poked around some incredibly well-formatted, well-commented html. I nodded slowly. This guy was meticulous.
“So… where’d all the frogs come from?”
“I made those too,” he says, beaming.
And while I’m processing this he rummages in his bag and pulls out a little ceramic frog working at a computer terminal. He places it on the table before us, next to the laptop.
“And THIS one,” he says, “I made for you! As a thank you for the interview.”
It was adorable. I hired him on the spot. I mean, why not? Worst case he’d wash out in 90 days and we’d hire somebody else. He turned out to be one of the best developers on our team.
And yes, his cubicle was loaded with ceramic frogs.
Art is the biggest snitch ever man like have you ever read a fanfic and been like “Oh the author is working through some trauma here”
Or when people rec songs/shows/fics and you suddenly know everything you need to know about who they are as a person?
I love seeing people’s picrew art styles because you can just look at them and be like
“You read homestuck and it was a big part of your life for a few years, you’re not into steven universe but you did watch it, and you had an intense black butler phase in middle school and doodled their eyes over and over again in your spiral notebooks”
Like I know art is inherently an attempt to make others understand what is going on inside our lonely little heads but sometimes the mortifying ordeal of being known just slips in there while you’re not looking
new ask game: tell me what u think u know about me based on my fics/art/etc

“Yes, yes! I remember now! That feeling of tension, the red moon in the sky!” Yusuke is rambling to himself as he turns away, mind in a daydream. “It is the forlorn feeling of mystery, a raven at rest as it prepares to take flight!”
