Welcome to the Google Fiberhood. (at Google Fiber Space)
I mean, cool. But it also sort of looks like they slapped some logos on top of an old, dilapidated Blockbuster.
Also, is this the drab filter, or does Kansas City really look like this?
To answer your question: It IS a drab filter. However, that strip mall is dilapidated (it was a gym/failed strip mall before), and it was a grey day there. Under sunlight, that building tends to pop. The blue of the sign is bright, and the building is relatively new red brick.
I started reading Reddit about a month ago and it has changed my perspective about Tumblr.
I have been using my Tumblr to repost amusing/interesting/thought provoking content from others, without actually thinking about what I was posting.
Reddit has managed to cheapen the internet for me, forcing me to realize that I was feeding into what I can only describe as “the stupidity machine.” You know the cycle. Repost content from someone else that aggregates content from other people on tumblr, who have either collected it themselves from Reddit, 9gag, chezburger or a million other sites. The attribution to the original content supplier is almost always stripped away, and the content itself is endlessly reposted to draw the admiration of other chortling idiots.
So, not cool. Looking back, I realize that I’ve only put in one or two posts out of the hundred here that contained anything that consisted of either original content, or added to the content I reblogged from someone else.
I have recently begun a rather savage campaign on FB, unfriending and filtering people who are nothing but content regurgitators. So why on earth would I want the same thing for myself, here?

Hi Tumblr, it’s me, a slightly older person…
I see a lot of you 20 somethings saying things about how you aren’t going to choose the lesser of two evils and that their policy on important matters are identical so what’s the point they’re both stooges for Wall Street and the Industrial War Complex.
You are right. Kind of.
I know y’all LOVE the 90’s. Me too. And I remember after after eight years of Clinton/Gore, I thought those motherfuckers were the devil. I was soooooooooooo upset with Bill Clinton waving his deregulation wand and his fucked foreign policy that I was all FUCK THE DEMOCRATS and I strongly advocated for Raplh Nader, even though he too didn’t really care about my “gonad politics.” Even when not choosing between the “lesser of two evils,” I was STILL having to compromise major issues.
Having been an adult person through 8 years of Clinton/Gore and 8 years through Bush/Cheney, I can tell you without a shred of hesitation that I will line up like my ass is on fire to vote for the lesser of two evils because the greater of two evils almost had us all living outside and eating dog food.
And if you think that a Romney presidency won’t be worse than Bush/Cheney, you are out of your mind.
I am fucking begging all of you, please, go vote. Aside from the fact that far more dangerous things are happening on your local level, (like collective bargaining being taken away in Illinois) this shit does matter.
If you think voting for Obama is the lesser of two evils, you’re wrong, it’s the lesser of three because not voting IS voting for Romney. Not voting is voting for dickbag judges that sentence people to jail in counties that have privatized prisons for minor drug infractions. Not voting is voting to remove pensions and collective bargaining and the last shreds of union power from the people. Not voting this election is voting for Feudalism.
Now pardon me, there’s some damn kids on my lawn and they want candy.
Bold emphasis is placed by me.

I don’t much post personal stuff here, but this one.. It’s brilliant.
My girlfriend and I are long distance (for now). We have a shared DropBox named “Collaboration”. We have a shared Spotify playlist called “Concatenation.” It’s kind of our thing.
Yesterday she received a letter from me (yes, we write paper love letters), which included a list of the things we had not yet done together.
Today, ASW posted this. The file name of this strip? “Converge.jpg”
Edit: Perfect~ish. I misread the last panel as “I don’t want to do with you.” As written, still stands, but not nearly as sweet.
