found and lost on tumblr

Friday, November 11th, 2011

The photo above has been reblogged on tumblr 296 times. According to its tags it was taken in Istanbul. You’re lucky to find out even that much on tumblr, even if you follow the chain of rebloggings back to the original posting. I guess that’s why they call it tumblr. Don’t even get me started.

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

If tumblr is a bellwether—and it may not be—then the sixties & seventies are back, in style if not in substance. So many of tumblr’s weird little blogs, each of them a kind of eclectic personal bulletin board, feature this kind of rock and roll Hair: The Musical meets back-to-the-land handmade-house thing.
