A lot of tumblr last week was preoccupied with Nor’easter Nemo, but the tumblr world moves so fast that, by Friday, it had moved on to the normal preoccupations of tumblr: fandoms, food, gifs, beautiful things, funny things, and Miley Cyrus. This is what I crown the Best of Tumblr: Nothing Nemo Edition.
The fandoms on tumblr are out in full force this Valentine’s Day. Want some Comic Sans Avengers Valentines? What about Pastel West Wing Valentines? Some Glee? Golden Girls? Historical Figures and High School Lit? Various fandoms, including Star Wars, LoTR, Harry Potter, King Kong, and Doctor Who? Teen Wolf? As tempting as that CJ Cregg one is, I think this one’s stolen my heart:
Like Italian Soda? FuckingRecipes has a hilarious, informative, and NSFW profanity filled tutorial on how to make your own. You better bet the next time I head to the supermarket, I’m picking up the necessary supplies. (Adapted from Sugar and Charm if you want a less funny and more SFW read.)
Butterbeer Cupcakes. Using schnapps. I want to go to there.
Street art tells a story in a beautiful way.
A Dutch couple takes pictures of their English Sheepdogs every day. And my heart explodes from the cute.
We mourn the cancellation of Don’t Trust the B- in APT 23 with this gif set of the B’s best moments. Goodbye, Chloe… we hardly knew ye.
This (I think oldish, going by Miley’s hair) video of Miley Cyrus covering Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” is making the rounds, surprising people with her voice. As one tumblee pointed out, Parton is her godmother, so one would think Miley wouldn’t even try a cover unless she could knock it out of the park.
Four Non Blondes’ “What’s Up” + Les Miserables = GOLD. Just go look. One image will not do it justice.
MRAs were all up on twitter last week, using the hashtag #INeedMasculismBecause. A bunch of guys invaded the hashtag with the best weapon ever: satire. SKTagg23 compiles some of the best tweets.
Make this your mantra this week, Persephoneers! Have a great one!
