It’s true; Yahoo! bought Tumblr.
Which means if you’re a Yahoo user…you’re just finding this out (haha) and if you’re a Tumblr user you’re outraged.
So after you’ve calmed down, from what I’ve gathered, it seems that Y! has no interest in changing anything about our beloved blogging site. They realize, much like PhillyD said; “the product is people”. In this case, if Yahoo! were to make drastic changes to this site it would scare off users…and why would they want that when they just paid $1.1b for it???
Some are scared that things will end up like Geocities. I had a Geo page, and it killed itself. Eventually sites like that (and other partners of Y!) naturally became irrelevant because they were centered around a gimmick.
Worst case scenario (and I use this lightly) Tumblr become a little more “family friend” which will cause more people to simply move over to WordPress. That’s what I’ll end up doing too, if this go too far south…
Everything is connected, old sport.
Today was the perfect start to a long weekend…
Woke up early, feeling refreshed. It was raining, the windows were open so there was a crisp chill that smelled like nature, and I was cozy under a pile of blankets.
I made breakfast, played video games, and did some reading. Cleaned the house, tended to the other living things (that aren’t my roommate) in the house, and started on a new project.
Some friends came over, we made dinner (steak, spuds, bacon, and suds) and took off to see the new StarTrek.
Spent some pipe time with the roomie, and now I’m going to curl up with my heater and pwn some digital n00bs.
I feel like I have so much to share, but I can’t remember what it is…
Becky sent me a digital mixtape *swoon* definitely will be sharing some of that with you folks. Also I knooow the new DaftPunk is out, and I’ve restrained from listening to most of it. Part of me is upset that people didn’t respect them enough to NOT leak it, so I’m kinda waiting for the official release date.
Work was interesting; first we got some really bad news, then a crazy wind storm hit and knocked out our power. Apparently it also tossed a few trucks in the ditch and knocked over trees…crazy!
My evening wasn’t any less productive. It started off with a surprise tattoo on my shin (ouch). Then there was the meeting for our 10yr Highschool Reunion (it’s really been that long) and theeen I had a stellar prayer meeting with some friends :)
OH I almost forgot! I had to submit a new selfie for an Alumni Newsletter at Providence College, so here’s my face…
A super busy, intense, food filled, action packed weekend led to me sleeping roughly 11hrs. I think my body finally got tired of me subjecting it to day after day of only 3-4hrs of sleep a night.
We got some good news at work, and some possible better news.
Then we opened up for our “Adults Only” night for the last time this season (thanks to the dudes that came out and made it fun!)
I really really really hate it when people say my job isn’t a “real” job. Like really, I knew it was coming when I signed up, but that doesn’t mean it still doesn’t sting. So I don’t get paid to do physical labor or crunch numbers all day…that doesn’t mean that it’s any less stressful. In case you didn’t know, I have to be emotionally/spiritually on-call nearly 24/7 (depending on the situation obviously). I’ll work a late night, and then an early morning. My job is probably 100x better than yours…don’t try to put me down because your life didn’t end up the way you wanted it to! That in mind; there’s a good reason I stopped hanging out with some of my old friends from highschool…hmm…
Oh yeah, I also took the longboard out for it’s first spin of the year with Mr Chris, that was friggin awesome!
shower beers before bed + daft punk
1. IT’S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN [video]
Arrested Development Season4 finally has a trailer, and it. is. glorious!
2. ROBOCOP LIVES [LaughingSquid]
If you don’t follow geek-news, then you didn’t know that Detroit passed a bill allowing a 10ft tall bronze statue of the classic action-movie-cyborg to be built. And here it is…
3. AGENTS OF SHIELD [ShieldTV.net]
Usually liveaction comibook television adaptations are pretty cheesy, this, actually looks pretty good.
Today the force was with me…
After working lastnight’s concert got me tucked in at around 3AM, my body jolted me out of bed at 6AM (thinking I was late for work) *yaaay*
3hrs of sleep later, I grabbed a team of students and we set out to clean the ditches (again) in Winkler to raise money for The Bunker! Super tired, super fun :)
Small lunch with the mother, and a solid pedal with the dude. Then showered up, made myself a toasted bacon sandwich, snagged some beer, and setup for tonight’s nerdiness.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT…today was StarWars Day, Free Comicbook Day, aaand it’s the release weekend of IronMan3 (which I’m seeing tomorrow). SO I grabbed some free issues of “Guardians Of The Galaxy” using Marvels iPad app, made some ‘zza, downloaded a bunch of SNES roms, and popped in Episodes 1+5. Perfect bro night!
