russian geckos get to have space orgies but i don’t, what the hell.
at least they beat Sir Richard Branson to it.
I hope this makes some of you in a better mood. Because I’m feeling quite over the day. But this helps a bit.
This post makes me want a duck.
Ah, Giclees. The lost art of limited edition excellence.
Those were the grand old days of the highly respected artisanal craft of blind-embossing a round stamp into the corner of an ‘archival quality’ bubble jet to connote ‘museum grade’, and adding a red ink stamp next to the emboss to firstly draw the eye to the tactile quality of the embossed roundel and also make allusions to the Chinese origins of print, and then writing a numberslashnumber beneath them both to assure that there has been “only 100 produced, of this particular hue”, and finally a signature, of the artist who printed it out, written with a flourish in pencil. Always a pencil. That was where ‘hand-crafted and original’ was connoted, which was as vital to the validity of the price point as the limited availability signalled by the number.
Yes. You knew you were getting premium quality bubblejets for your money back then in the good old days."

Welcome to the second installment of our government transparency report, where we explain in (hopefully not boring) detail the government requests we receive for account information, and how we respond to those requests.
How many requests? From January to June 2014, we provided information—either user data or blog content—for 84% of the requests made, covering 199 blog URLs. This represents approximately 0.00010% of all blogs on Tumblr. Not a huge number, but this is about full disclosure, no matter what the scale.
Also in this report: some emerging trends in the data, and some information about our improved user notice policy. Plus: a few additional gems to keep you fully educated about when the government is requesting your information, and what we’re doing to defend your rights.
We take the privacy of your information seriously, as you know, and we’ll be auditing ourselves twice a year from here on out. Look for our next report in early 2015.
