A Hillary Clinton Salsa Dancing Email Mystery In Two Parts

The State Department released its latest Hillary Clinton email dump yesterday, and I did it. I found two mysteries in one email. The email is from the last email release on October 30…………..yet it has been bizarrely silenced by the mainstream media. No longer!

Tumblr Just Launched A Fashion Line

So this is a thing that actually happened. Yesterday at New York Fashion Week, Tumblr debuted its very own line of dresses, shirts, sweaters and accessories — inspired by ten of the social network’s artists.

Captain America: Civil War Already Has A Meme

The clash of superheroes movie doesn’t come out until May 2016. That hasn’t stopped the Internet.

The First-Ever Cat Convention Pretty Much Broke The Internets

Last weekend, CatCon took the internet by storm. 10,000 people descended on the convention in LA, which featured appearances by celebrity cats, cat-centric panels, and all the cat swag you could shake a stick with a dangling feather at.

Tumblr Now Has A GIF Search Feature

If You Could Only Use One Social Network, What Would It Be?

Few of us have the mental bandwidth to care about the latest hot new social thing. When Foursquare split its app, I never downloaded Swarm in protest. I never signed up for Ello. Do I sound too get-off-my-lawn when I say screw Snapchat?

I Could Spend Hours Gazing At Pictures From Old Science Magazines

Briefly: If you’re on the lookout for a good old-fashioned internet time-suck, head over to the Tumblr scienceisstrange, where one hero has scanned a great many pages of over 300 issues of SCIENCE magazine from 1950-1980. The collection is full of great ads, illustrations, and photos depicting retro-gadgetry and science in all its halftone printed glory. That’s a wrap on the next few hours for me. See ya!

What GIF Would You Put In A Time Capsule?

I used to shake my cane at the sky and declare “I just don’t get kids today and their GIFsets.” Then I went to work for Tumblr.
