  1. Feminist Lisa Frank Catches Flak From Lisa Frank’s People, Fires Back with Pastel Kittens

    Damn, they said they "weren't mad, but disappointed." That parental guilt, though.

    Earlier this week we shared the news about the Feminist Lisa Frank Tumblr page. By Friday, the Tumblr page had apparently caught some hell from Lisa Frank's own representation. They went so far as to issue an intellectual copyright infringement notice to Tumblr in order to get the photos taken down.

  2. Gail Simone Wants to Know if People Think There’s a Difference Between Comics Fans and “Tumblr Fans”

    Is that even actually a thing?

    On her Tumblr yesterday, Gail Simone brought up the interesting notion of "Tumblr fans" or people whose only interaction with and appreciation for comics characters comes through stuff they've seen reblogged on Tumblr, rather than actually having read a comic book.

  6. Ming Doyle, Erica Henderson and Other Comics Artists Give Us the Genderblended DC Movie Universe We Always Wanted

    *make grabby hands*

    It began simply, when Ming Doyle posted this fabulous depiction of Sigourney Weaver as Bruce Wayne. But if you're going to give Tumblr an art prompt (draw DC comics characters as played by famous movie stars of a different gender), you better be prepared to give it a glass of milk to go with it. I mean... for the art explosion that happens next.

  7. Saved By The bell hooks Tumblr Brings Feminist Theory to Bayside High

    Feminism is for Everybody!

    "When [hooks'] stinging clarity meets the banal familiarity of Saved by the Bell, the juxtaposition can be a bit jarring. And I love that; the insistence that scholarship interact with something so absentmindedly consumed by our younger selves."

  8. Oh God, Hide Your Fics: Tumblr Introduces New “Fandometrics” Website To Chart Pop Culture

    And yet, the "reblog post as link" still hasn't been fixed yet.

    In its exhaustive quest to prove to kids on the Internet that they're totally hip and cool and their new parent company Yahoo is not running them into the ground, Tumblr has created a website which "compiles the top pop culture conversations within the Tumblr community." Basically, it's like Tumblarity but for fandoms. Hey, guys, remember Tumblarity? Gosh, I've been on the Internet for a while.

    She apparently loves superheroes.

    Martin Bruckner is dad to two-year-old Harper Grace, and she has some pretty hilarious observations on life, love, and superheroes. And pooping. Luckily, Bruckner is a wonderful illustrator, and has compiled her life-changing wisdom into a Tumblr called Spaghetti Toes (for the time his wife told his daughter not to put spaghetti between her toes, which is quite good advice, really).

    #BlackWidowMovie

  14. New Market Research Shows The Annual Median Income of Tumblr Users Is… $80K?

    Shhh, LinkedIn. No one cares 'bout your $80K plus.

    If your dash is at all similar to mine, you'd have no reason to suspect that Tumblr's user base is particularly privileged, financially speaking—but then again, it's difficult to gauge a community's wealth from its knack for curating cat videos and pizza tattoos.

  17. In Your Friday Dose of Weird Internet, Tumblr Finds IKEA Products In Classic Paintings

    Is a Swedish time machine a TÄRDIS?

    We already know Nicolas Cage is a vampire and Keanu Reeves is immortal, but were you also aware that IKEA gets its designs from classic paintings? Or IKEA is run by a cabal of time travelers who keep reusing the same designs as they Swedishly (yeah, I said Swedishly) bop around the centuries. Or IKEA uses designs simple and timeless enough that some of them will naturally pop up elsewhere. ...The second one. Definitely the second one.
