Rewarding myself with tumblr after doing some preliminary research and referencing for an assignment to help save me time during the actual assigment writing process at University. People keep looking over at me if they walk past or are on a nearby computer. Holy Crap dude it’s tumblr and she’s on it at university!! BLASPHEMY
This is the reason I haven’t been on tumblr much lately loyal followers. I do apologize. University takes priority and my computer at home that I usually use put up the majority of my reblogs (and the rare life post) has been on the blink lately. I hardly feel like using the computer at home now even if I have one that is actually working at my disposal. I am not even watching TV which is probably a good thing as it means I am catching up on reading my even expanding collection of second hand books.
I recently met a wonderful man who has taken up a lionshare of my time and thoughts. I definitely am not complaining about this or rubbing into the faces of any single online friends (can I call my followers my friends?). I am just extraordinarily happy at the moment and wanted to share it all with you.
I promise I’ll try and post more in future or at least do millions of queued up posts to make up for the lack of a my actual presence on here frequently.
I hope you are all getting on well. I know I have never spoken to some of my followers but I do know whose who. I actually having followers is amazing in itself.
My fellow uni students in the library at 6:30pm at night probably think I’m a huge slacker! Oh well. I’ll be posting more soon hopefully! If you got this far thanks for reading.
REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
i’m assuming that you’re all familiar with tumblr saviour at this point - i use tumblr saviour every day for blocking nsfw content while i’m at work, not to mention wiping my dash of blood, gore, and theamazingatheist. tumblr saviour is invaluable, honestly. we all know that. and we’ve all wished that we could just tumblr saviour the entire internet, right?
well, hold on to your hats, because this app, silencer, is functionally tumblr saviour for the entire internet.
this is a goddamned godsend. i’ve tried it out with a few annoying and triggering terms, and it works like a fucking charm. spoilery tweets about what happened on last sunday’s breaking bad? gone. incessant royal baby facebook posts? evaporated. i literally cannot express to you how happy this app makes me and how helpful it has been.
it also comes with custom “mute packs” - sets of buzzwords about popular events or spoiler-prone tv shows that you can just automatically mute, and voila, your twitter and facebook feeds are clean.
i wouldn’t be making this post unless i was dead fucking serious about making sure that you all have this in your lives. download it here.
Bethan Laura Wood: Stain
Stain is a set of a teacups designed to improve through use. This project examines the assumption that use is damaging to a product, for example, scratches on an iPod).
The interior surface of the cup is treated so as to stain more in predetermined places. The more the cups are used, the more the pattern is revealed. Over time they will build up an individual pattern dependent on the users personal way of drinking tea.
I just LOVE the animation here. The part with just their hands looks real. And I love the way Gothel’s fingers go from motherly gentle touch to creepy and evil. Beautiful
