Hey gang! How’s it going? Man, you guys wouldn’t believe some of the amazing things we’re working on over here at Tumblr HQ. There’s something magical around every corner. It’s pretty much exactly like Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory without the fruit-coated wallpaper (I’ve checked).
On the other hand, we do spontaneously break into song after sending disobedient children to their doom.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls… The latest five picks for Tumblr Tuesday:
We love stop-motion You’ll find the best stop-motion, timelapse, pixilation, and claymation videos on the web at this Tumblr blog. Videos are curated with a love for this timeless (see what I did there?) art, and submissions are encouraged.
Neighborhoodr Neighborhoodr is a reader-generated blog network where anyone can quickly and easily post about what’s happening in their neighborhood. Focused exclusively on New York City for the moment, the network is made up of over 60 Tumblr blogs with each assigned to a specific neighborhood.
Funny or Die Whoa, it’s the official Tumblr of Funny of Die! There’s lots of funny pictures and videos here that I’m sure you’ll love, and I’m not just saying that because they promised me a free t-shirt. (Look: I’m a sucker for free t-shirts.)
Let’s All Help Brett Davis Meet Jeff Goldblum Brett Davis has a dream. You may not think it’s a very noble dream, but that’s because you’re not Brett Davis. If you were, you’d undoubtedly agree that the opportunity to meet the star of such films as The Fly and Jurassic Park is not only noble, it’s a moral imperative.
Awesome YouTube Comments It’s my sincere hope, of course, that advanced alien civilizations never find out about this website. For if they do, the entire human race could be dismissed as nothing more than idiotic mouth breathers and forced into bondage by irate extraterrestrials. As much as I enjoy a good laugh, I can’t support gambling with the downfall of humanity like this.
Now it’s your turn! What are some other Tumblr blogs that you’d recommend?
Awww, you shouldn’t have. I mean, you really should have— a while ago in fact. But finally getting to us is nice. It feels nice.
Although details are scant at this point, here’s what we know: for the next few weeks, Tumblr users are encouraged to create and load homemade short films to Tumblr.com/Films. The pieces have to be between 5 and 10 minutes. Any other restrictions? Nope! Any prizes or real recognition? Nope! It’s kind of a ready, set, make stuff! mentality for a film festival, but no one said this had to be Cannes.
We have close to 100 short film submissions to watch this weekend! Awesomer.
PS I am saying RIGHT NOW it has to be way fucking BETTER than Cannes. Definitely more puns on the word Cannes, if nothing else. Probably drunker people. Free-er. More jokes. Hotter girls. Better liveblogging.
