So if you didn't catch on by now
officed: I also think it’s easier to reblog what someone else says than to come up with an original thought of your own, which is why the same themes tend to resurface again and again and again. Because… I’m sure tumblr users like lots of things that aren’t among the notoriously popular tumbling topics, but they go with the flow because it’s easier and those topics (puppies, Obama, etc.) are...
Fuck! I just gained three followers. UFF never works. I forget why I even do it. (Which is, I forget if I really want people to unfollow me, or I forget if it’s a success because it’s really a backwards trick to get people to follow me. So confusing.)
So if you didn't catch on by now
Today was Please Follow Me Friday, a shameless attempt at fitting in with Tumblr by posting a mix of items that everyone seems to find agreeable and praiseworthy. Except it really wasn’t! Who knows whether or not I like any of those things? (Some I like, some I am indifferent about, and some I’m sick of hearing about.) The entire point is, everyone else on here seems to gravitate...
I was the first to inform a gently waking ali that...
feistyred: If you women fall for that, I am withholding sex from every woman in the united states! Don’t worry, Ali, that’ll totally work! They’re already despondent enough after 34 years worth of withholding.
Give me women, wine, and snuff Untill I cry out “hold, enough!”...– Give Me Women, Wine, and Snuff, Keats PFMF!
So no matter what happens in this election next year there will be an old...– -bvan
The All-Animal Cabinet (via tylercoates) →
How funny is that? I love animals. “Secretary of Transportation: LLAMA!” hehehehe PFMF!
Friend Jim reports Pallin’s husband works for…BP!!!!!Yaaaaaay!!!! Drill drill...– -Mom (via disapprovingmonkey) (Palin? I’d drill it.)
allisonweiss: I really like MGMT. Bloc Party is pretty cool too. I’ve never listened to The Ting Tings. That’s awesome. I listen to MGMT all the time. I’m sad I missed them at McCarren. PFMF!
Last Summer Friday Happy Hour! Tonight!
nycmeetups: Where: Local 138 (138 Ludlow near Rivington) When: Friday around 5p If you’re not going away, and are looking for a fun way to kick off the holiday weekend, swing by for many drinks! Hope to see you then! I’m SO there. PFMF!
QFT. Obama supports everything I love. PFMF. adeandabet: HAHAHA. Suggestion for a PFMF: talk about how your favorite thing about Obama last night was how he accepted the torch from Hillary and championed women’s rights and equal pay for equal work…
Adventures in Google
Results 1 - 10 of about 5,480,000 for mccain idiot. (0.25 seconds) Seems like a low number. (The all-new Please Follow Me Fridays!)
OMG guys we’re only a few days away from the new season! I can’t wait! This is my favorite show ever. Does anyone want to come over my house for a viewing party? 52-inch television and Sabra hummus! (The all-new Please Follow Me Fridays!)
jgh: I have a day off from work tomorrow. Is it “weird” to go to the beach (read: Coney Island) by yourself? Please advise. It’s fine.
Theory: I can manage my Dashboard as long as I strictly limit the reasons to follow more people. Practice: I can never stop finding pretty girls on Tumblr. Especially when they keep finding and following me. My dashboard items are still growing like kudzu.
This isn't doctored. Does he know he's being...
I get the feeling that McCain’s campaign has written off anyone who can read at this point. This may not be a bad strategy given the current national state of affairs. The lower 55th percentile is, you know, still 55%. seriouslythough: McCain’s Prickly TIME Interview There’s a theme that recurs in your books and your speeches, both about putting country first but also about honor. I...
I have achieved something in life.
antikris: I’ve officially just been disgusted. I talk about my turds but THIS has managed to disgust me.
Is this going to get out of hand?
1. If you read that diary all the way through, remember that I did not write it, nor did I deposit it word-for-word in your dashboard. 2. I am all for progressive sexual interests, but to be clear, I never touched a dude in bed. He was in the same room. It was like a team shower after football practice, plus one of the cheerleaders. 3. I understand why all of you Internet people might be a...
From the Inbox:
hey Brian, I was very interested/excited about [Streetwars], but it looks like I have a work trip that will have me away too long during the event. Sorry to be slow in replying, but I don’t check this account very much. As an aside… I just saw your public bathroom sex post and in reply I only have one suggestion: Check out the private bathrooms with the mirrored walls in the basement...
Just ask Jolie!
Chaya, an offer: you can have sex with me and endlessly repeat my name on the Internet or spread obvious references to my bedroom abilities that all my friends read, and I totally won’t mind! I have references. (Warning: NSFW, complete overshare, you should know this by the column that it runs in) Question: do you make lemon squares? (Note: I’m going to get smacked for this. Hard. By...
You know what I'm talking about

doree: From [redacted] to firstname.lastname@example.org date Wed, Aug 27, 2008 at 5:52 PM subject Freelance Payment / Better Off Dead Sorry to email you out of the blue like this, but I’m a follower on your tumblr and was wondering if you could clarify something. You see, I’m kind of in the same predicament, having not been paid for a freelance piece since April, and I also have...
The Hotel Cafe Tour →
ardenashley: 10/28/08 - 9:30 Club This is going to be really great and ridiculously girl-y. I must go. I mean, come on, who plays in NYC the night before Halloween? I’m already booked a week through. The answer: a bus full of very hot women, and Tattoo.
Things I say to people who aren't following me
So that means you’ll be an angry hooker?
Is This Worth $600? →
I think it’s worth something, but $600 is a budget stretch for the moment and I’m not sure how much I can attend. More to the point, I don’t want this to be an expense which I can’t even get one client to offset. More fatalism: I believe I’ll be tethered to corporate desks until the bitter end, regardless of which skill investments I make on the side.
What’s it take to punch the snark out of a gay man’s chest, leaving befuddlement behind? Apparently mom jeans.
Which of these things did John McCain actually...
A) “Abortion is the greatest sin that a young woman could commit.” B) “In the 21st century nations don’t invade other nations.” C) “Mr. Obama has Muslim blood and cannot be trusted.” D) “The economy is fine and I hope to make it even better.”
abangupjob: Which of the following functions is f(a+b) = f(a) + f(b) for all positive numbers a and b? a) f(x) = x^2 b) f(x) = x +1 c) f(x) = x^1/2 (square root of x) d) f(x) = 2/x e) f(x) = -3x e)
nudawn: Brian, you see, women get all weepy and bitchy once a month. I can tolorate once a month. You whine at least once a week. I’m going to have to start ripping you a new asshole like i used to before we met in the real world. Please don’t take it personally. I see it, as giving you a little perspective. I wouldn’t say “weepy”. It’s more like, “really...
