sometimes I forget that rulers work with tablets and I get really frustrated with my inability to freehand straight lines
YOU COULD DO THIS
BUT IT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE
#and you can just trace circles too and use a straight edge and ohmygod my whole world is different now
omfg for real I thought this was just me?
er, dear artists of Tumblr:
WHY DID THIS NEVER OCCUR TO ME?
you can also trace things
Oh hey, I used to trace hand-drawn stuff with my first tablet, but I’d forgotten that you could. Heh.
Hello Tumblr. I’m making a webcomic. This is the incredibly adept crew of Bark Trek
Are there actually any conservative republicans on tumblr? Serious question.
Not a republican, but conservative. Does that count?
So very very few notes…
That’s because people are scared to come out and say they’re anything but liberal.
The tumblr reblog and notification system is so bad for discourse.
There needs to be a distinction between showing your followers someone’s words and saying “hey followers, here’s what I think of this person”—versus speaking to them directly and saying “hey you, here’s what I think of you.”
Having no separation between commenting and blogging means that you can’t make a minor comment on something without it being a Pronouncement To All, and you can’t write about your reaction to something without it also acting as a direct letter to the original writer. (Well, you can do either, but the system doesn’t support it very well. Reblogging is clearly what you’re meant to do.) Any kind of extended back-and-forth discussion fills up dashes like it’s the Debate Of The Century. This isn’t more transparent or honest; it’s just more everything in your face all the time.
Xkit definitely helps, but still, I think this makes the whole atmosphere here more stressful. ”If you’re going to say it about me, say it to my face and in front of everyone” is an awfully fraught mode of discussion.
And apparently it’s not just awkward for the reblogger, but for the poster. Which. Um.
Tumblr could probably have a worse UI. For instance, it could include a strobe effect in the new post creation window all the time, and not just if you’re unlucky. But other than that idea, I am not able to think of very many ways to make it very much worse. It’s very nearly maximally terrible.
It really is, and they seem to put so much work into that at every level. See also: “Reblog this text post as a link.” And, for extra credit, the fact that “reblog as link” will nearly always cut out every single word of the text you were actually responding to.
Recently we’ve had a handyman about the house and I keep on stumbling across him in various states of un(der)dress, or in my work-at-home-clothes (today’s theme was hobo/cat lady)
or while making strange faces and/or noises
and it’s just a little hard to keep my cool and act natural when suddenly confronted with a strange man in a space where I did not expect to find one. But I do my best!
ok now back to Maria!
why would you ever idolize cops when firefighters exist
yeah seriously have you ever heard of “corrupt firefighter”
what would a ‘corrupt firefighter’ even be. he put out that fire with a little TOO much water. he was a little rough with the cat he rescued from a tree for a little old lady
CAPTAIN JOHNSON NOW IN CHARGE OF FERGUSON SITUATION
"I’m going to march with you. There won’t be a police line."
Dang this sounds awesome. Any more sources for this? I’m too exhausted to fact check properly :/
Poked around a bit, multiple reports on CNN and elsewhere confirming at least the basics of, yes, that’s the guy.
The Highway Patrol of St. Louis has taken over for the St. Louis PD. Their captain is from Ferguson, and has been marching with the protesters.
