Tumblr Tuesday 06-08-2010

Posted on 8 June 2010

So last week I wrote a review of Tumblr in which I lauded Tumblr as a blogging platform but lambasted it as a social networking site. I ended by saying I was essentially going to stop using a Tumblr account since I had no need for one when I already had a Twitter and a Google Reader. I lied.

Turns out as soon as I stopped trying to use it as a social network and started JUST using it as a micro-blog, I started enjoying it a lot more again. As a place to share links, videos, photos, and music it’s a great tool, sort of like a visual Twitter. Here’s the best things I found and shared from the past week:

Song: Weezer – (If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To

Say what you will, Rivers can still write one hell of a pop song.

I don’t play many video games anymore, but I’m a big Sonic fan and a new game is the most likely to get me to sit down for an hour. This is a good overview of what’s gone wrong…

Song:

Nas & Damian Marley – Tribes At War (featuring K’Naan)

I’ve yet to hear a bad song off of this one.

I’m a big fan of Hootsuite, and a big fan of the owls.  “This social media client’s owl is clearly a play on  the Twitter bird,  but with some light-hearted twists they’ve  made it their own. Hootsuite  dresses up their owls for different  occasions (like the ever-changing  Google logo). Look for all sorts of  new versions in their email updates,  for example, a happy,  anime-inspired bird buried in their news on  Japan.”   - Top 10 Online Mascots

Redesigning the Boarding Pass

Tyler Thompson and a few of his readers propose a series of boarding pass redesigns. Some are pretty, others are obvious, and a handful (like the one above) are truly inspired.
