Tumblr is what MySpace could have been.
I love the chaos there. One minute I’m chasing down street photos, the next reading someone’s heart wrenching tale of woe (only to realise it’s fanfic for some show everyone else has heard of), then laughing at comics.
And it all feels so damned positive.
I think it was gagman Tim Vine who said, “if you don’t like that joke, don’t worry, another one will be along in a second”.
That’s how I think of Tumblr. As a gagman’s stream of consciousness let loose.
