This is a text post, and kind of a test.

I may be writing more here. Might not. This post about [redacted] will probably not belong anywhere that I don’t control.

The Trick To Today

Today was a subway to work and two coffees kind of day. To say I wasn’t at my best feels like I’m being harsh on myself, but it’s probably true anyways.

I got to see a friend today, who I had seen last week. The thing was, I hadn’t remembered even seeing them, because I didn’t remember the event where we hung out. Burning out happens. 

  • Maybe vacation some day.
  • Maybe I won’t eat 2/3 of an Oreos thing in a night again. I really hope I never do that again tbh.
  • Maybe things get better.
  • Maybe I grow up.

I don’t come here often enough.

Sorry, I need to change that. Work life has been chipping away at the hourglass from both ends.

I’m So Excited

Almost at the end of the first week of my stint at Tom’s Guide, and I’ve had three posts published so far. Tomorrow morning I turn in my first review, which I’m happy with, but want to wake up bright and early tomorrow to give one last big polish.

One of the best pieces of advice any writer was ever given was as follows:

Transmit clean copy.

I can’t say how much this week has exhilarated me, but it’s been unlike any that came before it.

Hell, last week had a great moment too, one I’ll write about here some day.

Tonight, after four days of working with these great people, I got to see Avengers: Age of Ultron with them. What’s interesting to me is thinking about the process of making that movie. 

It’s commercial art, but when it’s achieved so successfully at such a large scale and degree of difficulty, you have to give it its due.

Tumblr Wish List

Lists, so I could make sure short text posts weren’t being lost in the sea of GIF sets. I like both. Just the former gets lost in the latter.

Solve threaded reblogs, because nothing is more impossible to read than a 13 person deep reblog thread.

Organize the list, so, my tumblrs, on the right side of the dash? Can’t I be allowed to manually reorganize/prioritize?

GIFs OFF Mode, so my internet can be horrible sometimes, and I’d rather be allowed to choose which load and which don’t.

“_____ is following you” — hey, those idiots running Twitter have this, easy to see and find. Why can’t Tumblr?

Never See From This Advertiser — I’m pretty sure some of you don’t want Axe all in your dash. 

Anything you’d add to this list?

If you use WordPress, you too can have tweetable sentences like in that New York Times SNL story

Tweetable Sentences. Good form, NYT & WP.

Especially for mobile, but in general:

Tumblr ought to find something better than rising and falling quote levels for reblogged text posts.

Buzzfeed can publish some realness, but they’ve got a whole lot of nonsense surrounding it, making it tough to take them seriously.

For a serious article, a god damn obit for one of the most beloved journalists of this generation if my twitter timeline is to be believed, should the accoutrement content really be:

Paula Deen?

Kim Kardashian??

Miley Cyrus???

REACT WITH A GIF?

I’m sorry to sound like an old fart, but Buzzfeed’s gotta have a radio button in their CMS to calm their shit down when the blog post isn’t LOL WIN OMG CUTE WTF.

As much as I love what I put up in March, it feels like too reblog-heavy. I need to be writing more.

Anyway, it’s April, but you knew that already. New month, etc.

So, no better time than now. As you do.
