"My Tubes are Clogged" goes live!

Recommended Posts

My tumblr's new address and name, My Tubes are Clogged has gone live. The tumblelog used to be know as "The Junkbox of the Gundampilotspaz" where I dumped things I found interesting but not worthy enough to make it to my normal Blog; The Wonderful World of the Gundampilotspaz.

I found myself enjoying it so much that I wanted to give it a more serious treatment. What will show up there are things I find interesting; a picture, link, video, or quote; that need no commenting on or explanation.

For those who don't know what a tumblelog is; from Wikipedia:

A tumblelog is a variation of a blog, that favors short-form, mixed-media posts over the longer editorial posts frequently associated with blogging. Common post formats found on tumblelogs include links, photos, quotes, dialogues, and video. Unlike blogs, this format is frequently used to share the author's creations, discoveries, or experiences without providing a commentary.

The term "tumblelog" was coined by Why the lucky stiff in a blog post on April 12th, 2005, while describing Anarchaia.

Jason Kottke described tumblelogs on October 19th, 2005:

A tumblelog is a quick and dirty stream of consciousness, a bit like a remaindered links style linklog but with more than just links. They remind me of an older style of blogging, back when people did sites by hand, before Movable Type made post titles all but mandatory, blog entries turned into short magazine articles, and posts belonged to a conversation distributed throughout the entire blogosphere. Robot Wisdom and Bifurcated Rivets are two older style weblogs that feel very much like these tumblelogs with minimal commentary, little cross-blog chatter, the barest whiff of a finished published work, almost pure editing...really just a way to quickly publish the "stuff" that you run across every day on the web.

So (1) Enjoy

and (2) I encourage everyone to sign up and use tumblr the same way I do. It's not only fun, but convenient to have a place where you put everything you want to share with your friends. Instead of sending 20 links to 20 funny things, you send a single link to your Tumblelog where you posted those funny things. Tumblr has some awesome software that is placed in your bookmarks or your Bookmarks Bar to make posting a youtube video; or example; as easy as two clicks.
