Anonymous said: Am I too old for Tumblr?, as I'm 29 and fast approaching 30, though I've been tested and have the mental age of 14, but I have to pretend I'm older and grown ups my actual age talk about stuff I can't deal with (relationships, bills, sex) and tumblr is a nice refuge

No! It turns out none of us are!

30+ tumblr needs to make a power grab at some point. fuck your disney princesses, i want to see posts about the first time you realized ‘the monkees’ show on nickelodeon was an old tv show and that the monkees weren’t young and cute in real life anymore. i want to hear more from people who grew up in a pre-spongebob universe and used a rotary phone.

I’m not 30 yet but I will hand my tumblr over to my olderlords

They’re 30, not 50.

As someone over 30, I have to point out that I did actually use a rotary phone at one point (and I’m a lot closer to 30 than 50).

Of course, I was five and we were living with my grandmother at the time.

I’ve used a rotary phone! And answering machines and cassette players and record players. And Atari. I’m 29.

Likewise, I didn’t have an Atari tho. I had a Commodore! (28 here)

We had a rotary phone until I was like 13 - but my parents are cheap. :-). Atari was the ONLY gaming system we ever owned bc my mom figures out pretty quickly that that shit was worse than crack. So I got addicted to space invaders and the worm game instead. Word.

I’m 29 and we had a rotary phone in our house growing up.  Of course, most of my friends had no idea how to use it, so we were unusual.

I’m 33 and we had TWO rotary phones. But we also walked to school barefoot in the snow, uphill both ways. Such was the past.

Children, the lot of you.

That said, OP: talk about whatever you like. Tumblr is good like that. :)

I’m 40. I have a wife, two kids, a mortgage, and the same career for 16 years. Guess what? I’m still winging it.

All I’ve learned so far, is that ‘act your age’ means absolutely nothing. Do your best. Make sure that the people you love know it. Don’t stop finding new hobbies, and don’t stop getting better at your old ones. Read more. Don’t be an asshole.

All of that fits nicely into this little website.

Shakespearean insults, with cats.

I did not realize how very perfect cats were at delivering Shakespeare’s insults until now.

Turns out one of my coworkers is into guitars too! He brought in his Damage Control Liquid Metal pedal to play with. I’ve wanted to check one of these out forever.

I’m going to loan him my Strat for an opinion on my Strat pickups. I might make a few more sets and sell them.

I’m getting ready to try my hand at resin casting. Needed a vacuum pump to deaerate the urethane I will be making my molds from. Just found a $2k lab-grade vacuum pump for $50. I heart you, Craigslist.

Official Full Length Studio Ghibli Films Master Post

Studio Ghibli Films

All of this.

I watched a few of these with my wife when we were dating, but didn’t fall head over heels for Ghibli movies until we had our first kid. I have really fond memories of laying on the couch with babies asleep on me, with Totoro and Kiki and Porco Rosso and Ponyo on repeat. 😊 every frame of these movies is a masterpiece.

Trip Triangle at the Shop. Houston Texas Bici713.tumblr.com

A GT triple triangle frame… looks like their old mountain bike frames. But it has caliper brake mounts instead of canti’s, and frame shift bosses (with adapters screwed on)…and old-school GT livery… What is this frame?? Want!

EDIT: GT ZR 4000. Love you Google.
