i'm fairly sure i'm going to be bored with tumblr before i find a layout i like and manage to tweak it to my satisfaction. and i still have no idea what i'm supposed to do with a tumblr account that i can't just do here.

it's going to be like my twitter, just sitting there, taking up valuable space on the internet.

also, "embedding disabled by request" is my least favourite sentence today...

thank you!

i just really don't see the point of it. i mean, people are always saying how they can just spend hours and hours on tumblr, but what the hell are they doing with all those hours?? at least with twitter you can spend some time reading stupid things celebrities say. and also, it has drama.

i don't get that either!

i mean, if i ever go on it, i'll spend like 5 mins looking at the *DEEP* and *MEANINGFUL* photos people post, and then it's boring. i don't understand the point of the thing at all.

i know a few LJ friends that have gone over to tumblr... but it's not even close to being the same. it's not a journal or blog. it's just.. i dunno, man.


AND HAHA twitter. the drama is the only reason i use that.

gone over? as in they use tumblr INSTEAD? idgi. maybe it's that i don't know what it can actually do yet, but is seems super stupid to me, the way it's set up. it's great for just posting random pics, but other than that? nah.

twitter drama is AWESOME.

ps. does this series of skins end soon? i'm scared of reading your blog. lol. (i'm being randomly stubborn and not watching until it's over. my brain just can't handle the tension of weekly episodes. and i'd inevitably get caught up in the fandom wank.)

FUCK. i've tried to reply to this 3 times now.

ANYWAY... yeah, they do. and all they do is post caps from TV shows. there's no like... personality on tumblr. no social interaction. just a lot of people who repost emo pictures.

ps. YES. (thankfully?) i should have done what you did cos the week inbetween gives me far too much time to analyse and think about the episodes, and so far, if you have even a little bit of a brain, the episodes fall apart. but, i'm sure in retrospect they'll be better, and without the opportunity to fanwank them, i probably would like them better.

not to mention i'm so unimpressed that i opened my mouth and said my opinion... but since EMily is God & Jesus & Santa Claus in one, it appears that i have just drowned a truckload of puppies. how dare any criticize her. i mean, everyone's rather civil about it, but apparently i am naive and wrong and have no idea that revenge=love. *shrug* (it's not really a spoiler cos apparently i am completely off my rocker, living in my own Cassie world.)

meh. i think perhaps i just think too much for this series. it may have been a much better idea to just jet thru them all in one sitting. it's only 8 episodes anyway... so equivalent to a work-day.

yes. i've decided that the purpose of tumblr is emo pictures. so that's what i'll be posting as well. i'm desperate to fit in, after all. lolwut.

you're so mean for drowning puppies! i kinda can't wait to see it now, because i think i liked emily. or... felt sorry for her, maybe, because she seemed so fucking helpless. mostly i just remember being annoyed by the cook/freddie/effy shit that just went on and on and on. (the problem with watching it all in one sitting (or two, i think it was) is that it doesn't really stick the same way. lol.) but i usually find that you're right when you complain about something the rest of the fandom doesn't get.

idk. i guess i just prefer the first generation, really.

i totally did that at first cos i'm like "well it must be fun or something and that's why everyone does it..."

not so much no.

FUCK THE PUPPIES BIATCH. i'm moving onto kittens with baseball bats next, and then baby bunnies with my bare fucking hands!... um. soz. rage blackout.

yeah, see, without giving a lot away, that Emily doesn't really exist anymore. i won't say more, but that's my opinion at the moment. so, i don't find her particularly sympathetic... but then again, i don't secretly think i am emily... and so i don't feel personally violated when faced with alternative opinions. (i'm secretly naomi, and thus will defend her regardless! LMAO. which is also not true... but closer to the truth. heh)

"i usually find that you're right when you complain about something the rest of the fandom doesn't get."

me too.

but i'm trying not to feel all lofty and superior for my opinions but i think i'm right anyway, haha.

i never thought i would agree with that, but the longer this farce goes on, the more i'm inclined to agree. i honestly never believed i'd say that.

& i feel like a traitor that i don't have a single Gen1 icon. (other than effy ones)
