The #Native American tag needs to a featured and edited tag like other major tags on tumblr!
Apparently a tag becomes a featured one like #art or #music when tumblr decides that there’s enough activity in the tag to have editors.
Well, I for one am tired of seeing people abuse the Native American tag. When I check the tag, I want to see other Native Americans. I want to see our history, our art, our culture, and our contemporary events. I do not want to see people in redface, white hippies wearing dreamcatchers, or hipsters in faux native fashion.
If tumblr made #Native American a featured tag, I would be more than willing to put in the time to edit it, and I know of quite a few other blogs who would likely step up to edit.
This needs to happen.
Tumblr is concerned for conservation!
I thought some of you might like to know that Tumblr has contacted me after the “open letter” to say that they are taking the suggestion into consideration the next time they add new tags.
So thanks for re-blogging and getting our voices heard :]
Players I'd Love To Like: Mario Gomez
Boy do these Germans hit the spot. They’ve been climbing the ranks of “Most Favorite National Team” since they played in the 2010 World Cup. Not only that, but they usually look like this, or like this, not to mention uber Badstuber looking like THIS. If the premonition of all that skin doesn’t get your lovin-attention than there’s no hope in the future of football. Unless the future holds more of THIS!
Let’s cut to the chase. The Bundesliga and their players seem like they’re a fun bunch of people. Part of what makes them is a player named Mario Gomez. On the football side, this peculiar player has no extraordinary powers. There’s definitely an abyss between him and players like Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. But it’s kind of a reason why we fall for him even more. The whole, “he’s not the best, he knows it, but he’s going to keep trying anyway” mindset gives Mario the underdog quality that all kidnutellas love so much. Mario doesn’t just try in football, he excels in the most underrated way. Think WAY BACK, about 3 weeks ago, when Mario gave Bayern Munich that 2-1 lead against Real Madrid. During the wee twilight of the match a late cross came into Casillas’ box and then some “piece of mass” just hit the ball past Casillas and into the net. The goal can be described like this:
“I just charged in blind, because I sensed it was coming. I have no idea which body part I used to put it in.
The vagueness of how he actually scored gives him a sense of humility. He’s like saying, “I was just running towards the box because that’s where my coach told me to run, I knew the ball would eventually get to Casillas’ box, so I just kept running.” That kind of humility is rare in football. With the Ronaldos going, “I is best. I am number 1, number 2 AND #3” or the Messi’s going ,”I didn’t do anything special, my teammates did” (Messi not special? c’mon now…). Mario’s football is something to be excited about, but that’s not all he has in his bag of sexy.
Off the pitch Mario Gomez doesn’t fail to amuse. During a post-match interview Mario thanked his teammate Thomas Muller for his assist. It was nothing special…:
“I’ve got to think of something for him. Maybe I’ll allow him to come to our bed. But only when my girlfriend’s not there because Thomas is dangerous”
If “nothing special” really meant “let’s get erotic up in here”. The way Mario is looking now-a-days, I bet even Muller blushed when he heard it. Do I think that Mario knew what he was saying when he answered that question “no”, do I think Mario should keep not knowing what he says “YES”.
Mario Gomez should be a player plain LIKED. Not because of the unprecedented amount of nudity he shows off on the pitch, or his semi-sexed up interviews, or even his football prowess(…or lack there of). He makes the game look actually fun. And who doesn’t love that?
I don’t know what tumblr THINKS it’s doing, but forcing entries onto people’s dashes is not cool. Featured tags, no thank you. That blog doesn’t follow anyone for a reason, and I am not interested in the tech tag whatsoever, or any other tags you choose to feature. My content is more important that your showcasing, when it comes to my personal interests, SO!
Kindly get off my dash.
Bookmark Dump of a Hacker News Rookie
These are some of the best articles I discovered this year.
Many of them are from Hacker News, a site I discovered in early March. #YCS2012
I read about 700-1000 words per a minute at a 60-80% comprehension rate and go through about 40-50 articles a day. If it’s a super technical article, I might read it a few times. Hacker News is worth the 30 to 40 minutes of time every day.
