Fandometrics In Depth: Feminism Edition

Tumblr has always been a place where feminists could connect and speak freely. And as Tumblr has grown, so have the allied communities and the size of the conversation. From 2013 to 2015, year-over-year growth in the number of original posts tagged #feminism increased at an average rate of 4.22%.

That changed in 2016. As Tumblr discussed the US presidential election and its impact on women’s rights, access to healthcare and the importance of consent, the rate of original posts tagged #feminism grew 20%, five times the growth of the previous three years. Looking at the entire ecosystem of Tumblr tags, original posts and reblogs about #feminism accounted for triple the amount of conversation it did in 2015.

2016 also saw a change in Tumblr’s understanding of what feminism means.

The term intersectionality describes the overlapping systems of oppression at play in society—it’s the idea that gender inequality, racism, class status, and other injustices are inseparable from one another and can’t be studied in isolation.

Between 2014 and 2016 there was a modest increase in engagement around #intersectionality. Original posts increased 13%, while searches increased 44%. But then came the Women’s March. On January 20th, 2017, engagements around #intersectionality spiked 5191% from just two days before. Since then, the whole tone of the #feminism conversation on Tumblr has changed.

In 2017 so far, people are talking about intersectional systems of oppression 21% more than they have in the last four years combined.

How does that change in tone manifest itself? Here’s a sampling of posts that have gone viral since the March:

  • Whovian Feminism (@whovianfeminism), which looks at inequality through a fannish lens
  • Empower. Volunteer. Unite. (@ucf-now), the official Tumblr of the University of Central Florida’s National Organization for Women chapter, and
  • Action (@action), our hub to help connect you to the resources you need to become an agent of change.
50 ideas for a Grimoire

I collected these ideas (and others) from different sources. What you see here is what I think would be interesting to put in my Grimoire (because apparently people need to be told these things).

1 ) decorations ; a personalized cover (with a picture of the moon, a pentagram, your patronus or something else, or maybe just a nice flowery design or leather cover), using a glitter pen and stickers, pressing flowers between the pages, drawing, taping photos and other visual ideas.

2 ) protection sigil on the reverse of the cover (so people won’t read it without your authorization)

3 ) your craft name and your reason for choosing it

4 ) how you define your path, can include coven rules, the tradition(s) you follow and/or a personal set of magickal rules

2. Always shoot in RAW. Always.
3. Prime lenses help you learn to be a better photographer.
4. Photo editing is an art in itself
5. The rule of thirds works 99% of the time.
6. Macro photography isn’t for everybody.

14. Spend less time looking at other people’s work and more time shooting your own.
15. Don’t take your DSLR to parties.
16. Being a photographer is sexy.
17. Making your photos b/w doesn’t automatically make them “artsy”
18. People will always discredit your work if you tell them you “photoshop” your images. Rather, tell them that you process them in the “digital darkroom”.
19. You don’t need to take a photo of everything.
20. Have at least 2 backups of all your images. Like they say in war, two is one, one is none.

24. Taking a photo crouched often make your photos look more interesting.
25. Worry less about technical aspects and focus more on compositional aspects of photography.

27. Always underexpose by 2/3rds of a stop when shooting in broad daylight.
28. The more photos you take, the better you get.
29. Don’t be afraid to take several photos of the same scene at different exposures, angles, or apertures.

36. Alcohol and photography do not mix well.
37. Draw inspiration from other photographers but never worship them.
38. Grain is beautiful.
39. Ditch the photo backpack and get a messenger bag. It makes getting your lenses and camera a whole lot easier.
40. Simplicity is key.
41. The definition of photography is: “painting with light.” Use light in your favor.
42. Find your style of photography and stick with it.
43. Having a second monitor is the best thing ever for photo processing.
44. Silver EFEX pro is the best b/w converter.
45. Carry your camera with you everywhere. Everywhere.

You didn’t recognize him when you met each other for the first time.
He was a warm smile between grimaces in the cold light of the bar you’ve never been before. It was supposed to be a nice evening with your friend, a few cocktails and maybe some pool later. But she was too distracted from herself, from other guys to notice your loneliness.
You’re the outsider like before, never learn from the mistake that you’re sometimes nothing more than the appendage. The one who gets the call from her friend next day where you went and how much fun she had yesterday.
Without you.

He saw more in you.
A nice talk went quickly and slow at the same time in a flirt, in something what promised more. Brown eyes didn’t leave your face, not caring about the other people around as he asked you to accompany him to his hotel.
A new feeling spread in your stomach, leaving in a exciting tingle in your veins as you agreed and went with him. You never did that before, but you also never did get that kind of attention.

His kisses tasted like a summer day.
You know the ones where the rain stops pouring right before the sun shines again and you can’t get enough of it.
You were the rain, he the sun and he couldn’t stop drinking and burning you.
He took what he wanted and played your body like a musician. Nothing more counted than what he did with his hands, his tongue and which melodies of lust he coaxed next from you.
The whole night you were laying with each other, talking, laughing and loving each other. It was a perfect ending and promised to become more than a simple sex as he saved his number in your phone.

Nervousness was an understatement when you dialed his number for the first time.
Your cheeks flushed from the compliments, your ears red from a never ending talk about everything and nothing. His voice sent waves of pleasant anticipation through your veins, making your heart jump.
“I want to see you again.”
The pleasant anticipation when he suggested a small café not far away from your home. Followed by disillusionment when you noticed the big sunglasses and the cap like he’s ashamed to meet you in public. The feeling faded when he kissed you and was completely forgotten when he asked for another date and another and another…

He was a liar.
It was a coincidence when you turned on the TV and stopped at a show about demons and two brothers hunting them. You heard about it and thought you’d give it a chance as you leaned back on the couch. Your phone always close in case he’d write or call.
It felt like a punch in the stomach and getting high at the same time as he appeared on your screen, younger and broader. He told you that he’s working on a farm and you laughed about it, because he didn’t seem the type for it.
And you were right.
With your eyes still on screen you took the phone and started to google him.
The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan wins..
Jeffrey Dean Morgan on his ‘bromance’ with Norman Reedus..
Jeffrey Dean Morgan pays tribute to fan favorite Denny 11 years..
Your fingers felt ice cold when you scrolled through the photos, unshed tears pooling in your eyes as you saw Jeffrey kissing other women. A vibration brought you back to reality.

‘Can’t wait to see you tonight. Xxx’

‘Me too. Hope you’ll bring Lucille.’

It took him 44 minutes and 51 seconds to realize that something was wrong and to appear in front of your door.
His voice was nothing more than a rough whisper as he said your name and whipped the tears from your cheeks. A broken shadow laid over his face as he pressed his forehead against yours.
“I can explain.”
And he did. The more he spoke, the more you understood and soon you found yourself cuddled to his chest on the couch. In the end his explanation was pretty simple, he wanted to get seen by you as a normal man and not the dude who’s standing in front of a camera.
“No more lies.”
“No more lies.” He said and kissed you softly.

He kept the promise.
From this moment you became unstoppable as a couple. Holding hands and kissing in public, him introducing you to his friends and spending your holidays on different places on earth together.
Couple stuff.
But like nearly everything it had his shade sides to be with a celebrity.
The problem weren’t the photographers or his fans who didn’t hesitate to approached to him. No, you kind of liked it, because you saw how much he enjoyed to interact with his fans.
The problem were social media.
While he hadn’t the time to read all the comments on his tweets and Instagram, you found yourself more and more on this sites.
You knew you should ignore it, but it affected you and left a bitter taste in your mouth.

Your friends called you a mystery when it comes to your feeling.
Different like Jeffrey who could read in you like a book. He knew which one of your laughters is forced and which smile didn’t reach your eyes.
“Talk to me.” He pleaded the evening before he goes back to the TWD set.
“About what?”
A sigh in disbelief as lips caught his in a deep kiss and you shoved him backwards until he fell on the couch. He was pissed as you straddled his lap and didn’t let him speak, using your womanhood against him. He let you do and soon found himself buried in the bubble of lust which you created.
With tears you looked down at the sleeping Jeff, his chest moved up and down in a steady rhythm like his heartbeat.
Maybe the others were right and he deserved better. Maybe you shouldn’t had listen to them and stayed in his warm embrace.

Now you’re standing in the door frame, in one hand a bag full of your clothes and in the other a note.

One day it’ll stop hurting.’

Now you’re the liar.

Here Are the Samples Used on Jay Z's '4:44'

Jay Z’s thirteenth solo album 4:44 is finally here and it’s undeniably refreshing to hear the legendary Brooklyn rapper wax poetic over soulful, crisp production from No I.D.

A look through the liner notes reveals No I.D. did some powerful crate digging, with samples from the likes of the Fugees, Nina Simone, Donny Hathaway, and Stevie Wonder. And how he flipped them over the course of 10 tracks? Truly a work of art.

Below are the songs that were used to craft 4:44

“Kill Jay Z”

Contains sample from the Alan Parsons Project’s “Don’t Let It Show”

“The Story of "O.J.”

Contains elements and excerpts from Nina Simone’s “Four Women”

Contains excerpts from Kool & the Gang’s “Kool’s Back Again”

“Smile”

Contains elements and excerpts from Stevie Wonder’s “Love’s in Need of Love Today”

“Caught Their Eyes”

Contains sample from Nina Simone’s “Baltimore”

“4:44”

Contains sample from Hannah Williams and the Affirmations' "Late Nights and Heart Breaks"

“Family Feud”

Embodies portions of the Clark Sisters’ “Ha Ya”

“Bam”

Contains elements from Sister Nancy’s “Bam Bam”

Contains elements from Jacob Miller’s “Tenement Yard”

“Moonlight”

Contains sample from the Fugees’ “Fu-Gee-La”

“Marcy Me”

Contains elements from Quarteto 1111’s “odo O Mundo E Ninguém”

“Legacy”

Contains samples and excerpts from Donny Hathaway’s “Someday We’ll All Be Free”

Embodies portions of Raekwon's "Glaciers of Ice" featuring Ghostface Killah and Masta Killa

This photo, dated April 9, 1942, shows the USS California being  navigated into the drydock to be repaired after being refloated. The notation “Isn’t She Beautiful?” was most probably made by Captain Homer N. Wallin of the Salvage Division.

Much of the initial salvage effort at Pearl Harbor was overseen by Wallin, who was present during the attack. He was appointed to command of the Salvage Division at the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard. 

Wallin worked in consultation with others including Captain Edward L. “Ned” Cochrane of the Navy’s Bureau of Ships. Wallin sent routine reports on the operations that included the status of the current work with any significant findings. The reports from Wallin and many others were organized into files for each ship. 

Of the ships that sunk, the USS California (BB-44) was the first to be refloated. It had settled into the mud below it, up to its superstructure and initial photos reflected this. (Other ships that had not sunk, but were only damaged already had repairs underway).

I think we get a better time frame from this episode. Basically Greg met Rose when Sour Cream was conceived. We can say Sour Cream is about 8 maybe less maybe more in this photo, so we can find out Greg and Rose were together about 8ish years more or less and Greg was quite young when he met Rose, so he can’t be that old when he had Steven.
The wiki says Greg was 22 when he played in front of Rose, so about 8 years later he has Steven, which would make him about 30? And by the time Steven is 14 that would make Greg about 44?

If Naruto characters had Tumblr: Part 2

Part 2 of 2! What if various Naruto characters had Tumblr blogs? What would their usernames be, and what would they blog about; if at all? Part 1.

1. Naruto: Username - NineTailsOfRamen

Naruto would predominately blog about ramen. He would make sure to set up a queue to post or reblog a new photo every couple of hours with uplifting captions underneath them. He would also rave constantly about how everyone should eat at Ichiraku. 

Post 15: Man this is making me suuuper hungry

Post 27: Ate this bad boy today!! Extra Chashu and naruto!! (that’s also my name heheh)

Post 56: Guys guys you NEED to eat at Ichiraku okay he is like the GOD OF RAMEN

2. Sakura: Username - PinkHairDontCare

Sakura would post motivational things such as body workouts, words of advice and things to lift peoples spirits. She would also (unknowingly) reblog Konan’s photos of flowers from time to time. 

Post 34: Here’s my daily routine for workouts in the morning! Try and add a few extra push ups or sits ups if you can manage it!

Post 44: DON’T GIVE UP. You can DO IT. There is nothing in your way of achieving your goals except for you! I know you can do it!

Post 78: Super beautiful Sakura tree; much like myself! ;))

3. Sasuke: Username - saszuke

Sasuke would literally just post about his thoughts and feelings throughout the day. He would never reblog anything but rather upload his own photos of things like the sunrise or the sky during a thunderstorm. He has a feeling that all the lovely anon messages he’s getting are from Itachi but he can’t be sure. 

Post 6: Actually ate breakfast today. That’s a new one. I haven’t been committed to eating breakfast in a long time. Had eggs; they were alright.

Post 21: Here’s a photo I took last night; managed to capture some lightning during the storm. I feel it reflects my personality pretty well.

Post 50: To the anon who keeps sending me nice things; who are you??? Are you Itachi?? It’s kinda creeping me out tbh

4. Shikamaru: Username - StitchedDream

Shikamaru would be on Tumblr quite a bit when he’s bored. He would reblog pictures of the sky and super comfortable looking bedrooms or beds. He keeps promising his followers he’ll upload a selfie of himself but he’s too lazy to do it.

Post 40: These clouds are me. Not even joking

Post 67: I kinda just laid down today and didn’t get up for like 4 hours. I didn’t even sleep.

Post 89: I want ALL of these beds. Just one big room filled with beds. That’s the dream. 

5. Chouji: Username - FoodIsAlwaysMyMood

Chouji would of course blog about food. He mostly uploads his own photos of various places he goes and the food he eats there. He’s gained a huge following and always takes suggestions on what to try. 

Post 345: Tried the new BBQ chicken at my local BBQ place today! It was AMAZING. The texture was PERFECT. Here’s a photo!

Post 400: Someone suggested I give a miso based ramen a try; so I did! It was SO GOOD THANK YOU FOR SUGGESTING IT.

Post 567: Here’s a photoset of every meal I had this week! It looks like quite a lot now that I see it but everything was INCREDIBLY TASTY! Let me know which one is your fav!

6. Suigetsu: Username - ThinkingBoutH2Hoe

Suigetsu shit posts. A lot. And he doesn’t even care. His blog has no theme whatsoever; sometime he posts porn and sometimes he posts photos of birds. He follows Kisame and reblogs a lot of his posts about sharks too.

Post 198: REBLOG IF YOU ARE GAY, LOVE PEPE THE FROG OR LOVE TAKING THE SOULS OF THE INNOCENT

Post 444: Kisame Senpai this shark looks SO COOL YOU ARE THE COOLEST

Post 666: GUYS IT’S THE DEVIL POST HAHA I’M GONNA DIE

7. Rock Lee: Username - TheMostYouthful

Rock Lee obviously would post anything and everything to do with training and fitness. From reblogging fitness videos to uploading his own routine, he’s followed by heaps of people who look up to him. They get a bit weirded out when he posts a lot of close up photos of Gai, though.

Post 70: GOAL TODAY: TO DO 200 MORE PUSH UPS THAN USUAL!

Post 99: HERE’S A VIDEO OF MY WORK OUT TODAY!!! I SPED IT UP SO IT WOULDN’T BE AS LONG BUT ENJOY!

Post 111: THIS IS MY TEACHER MIGHTO GAI ISN’T HE THE GREATEST EVER

8. Gaara: Username - RedCactusPanda

Gaara doesn’t like telling anyone he has a Tumblr. He prefers to stay anonymous but LOVES posting about cacti and succulents. He always asks bigger blogs questions about how to look after his own and posts photo of his own secret cacti garden. 

Post 32: This little succulent has grown so much since I got him! I’ve named him after one of my friends; but not saying who!

Post 55: Someone suggested I would probably enjoy having some marimo’s so I got some! Here they are only two days after I got them and they are pretty cool looking :))

Post 70: Here’s my collection after 4 months. It’s grown a big bigger than I originally wanted but I love them all anyway!

9. Kiba: Username - 99PercentDog

Kiba posts dogs. And a lot of them. That’s all he posts as well; constantly reblogging photos or uploading his own of Akamaru (which get pretty popular).

Post 100: Look at this husky!!!! Beautiful!!!!

Post 150: THIS IS AKAMARU! Isn’t he the most handsome dog you have EVER seen?? This is a video of him asking for food haha look at those adorable eyes that I can never say no to goddamit

Post 230: THIS IS THE GREATEST PHOTOSET EVER!! LOOK AT ALL THE DOGGOS!!!

10. Haku: Username - It’sAlwaysWinter

Haku is always posting his best selfies. He reblogs a lot of posts relating to snow and winter as well, but it’s mostly selfies. A lot of people think he’s a girl. He likes shutting down perverted men who message him. 

Post 106: Me today~ :)) I really like my hair in this pic

Post 142: Thanks to the kind anon who told me my eyes were beautiful, but not as beautiful as my face on the floor :))) you’re the man

Post 600: Oh yeah, by the way. I’m a guy. A dude. A male. Surprise!

Amtrak - 12th Street by d.w.davidson
Via Flickr:
Amtrak Train No. 15, the Texas Chief, is shown backing into Union Station prior to it 3:00 PM departure. FM H12-44 No. 637 is handling the back-up from the AT&SF 22nd Street coach Yard. No. 637 would be traded to GE and scrapped in 1974. The road power is a quartet of F7s in A-B-B-B configuration, led by F7A No. 315, one of 14 F-units in the yellow bonnet paint scheme. The former PRR Western Freight House is in the background of this photo taken from the Roosevelt Rd. bridge on May 20, 1973.
