One sign of the impending Apocalypse is surely skinny jeans.
Just one of many excellent parts in this piece by Tom Ewing (which is only a little bit about Tumblr.)
(The piece is about Marvel fandom, though that’s not apparent from this quote.)
This is exactly why people refer to Tumblr in dismissive tones, though. This is no accident.
"Hysterical", "over-emotional", "irrational" means too many women
"obsessed with social justice" means too many POC, too many LGBTA, too many disabled/chronically ill people. Not just talking about their own lives, talking period, without being immediately silenced.
Makes some folks very uncomfortable.
It’s too blatant to even be a dogwhistle.
This is an extremely interesting insight, for me at least. And sheds some light on certain reactions to this blog both from the tumblr platform itself, and from other external websites. I wonder how medievalpoc and ideas about it are affected by overall perceptions about tumblr as a blogging platform, and the way its users are perceived. It lends some context to some of the assumptions people have made about my age, gender, race and *ahem* “relative credibility”.
Personally, I am in love with the interactive elements here.
This 16th Century Book Can Be Read Six Different Ways
A few months ago, we showed you a dos-à-dos book—one with a hard back that forms the front of another book. This rare book owned by the National Library of Sweden is even more complex. Erik Kwakkel, a medieval book historian at Leiden University, says that this book is actually six books that are each opened differently. Each book opens and closes with a little clasp.
All of the books are devotional texts printed in Germany in the 1550s through 1570s, including a copy of Martin Luther’s widely-read The Shorter Catechism.The book is currently owned by the National Swedish Library and resides in Stockholm, among the Royal Library’s archives. Only for advanced readers, advanced readers with low attentions spans.
Finally finished Kayo's commission.
I would like a picture of hunter!Stiles with the second character as either Derek or hunter!Allison. I really want a bow in the picture, of course, and I love when you use sort of a print […] Bonus points for cool gloves or leather or metal hardware on clothes
