Hey guys! In a moment of weakness, I joined tumblr. I'm still not exactly sure what it's all about, but I wanted to follow a couple of feeds (like the excellent Brystolwhip blog bristolwhip.tumblr.com/). I'm going to use tumblr to post sketches sometimes, if you care to join me. :)

I've never even heard of Tumbler. What exactly is it?

Story: One time I yelled at my brother to be quite and lightning struck outside as I pointed angrily at him. :evillaugh:

Haha! I like that story!

I'm still figuring Tumblr out myself, but at far as I can tell, it's a blog format that has this special "Reblogging" option that's made it popular among artists.

'Twas pretty funny when it happened. :giggle:

Blog, huh? Sounds like a useful thing for an artist. Reblogging?

Basically it's like twitter, where you press one button and it's passed on to your followers and linked back to the original artist without any effort on your part. Pretty nice!

Tumblr. Cool. I still don't really understand what it is, but there were a lot of cool pictures ;)

A story . . . how about a game of "fortunately-unfortunately?"

This one time we actually found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Unfortunately it was guarded by a pack of ferocious rainbow trout . . .

Fortunately the rainbow trout were vegetarians on principle, so we could be pretty sure they wouldn't eat us.

Unfortunately the vegetarian trout had spent all of the leprechaun gold on boca burgers . . .

Fortunately, the treasure chest was filled with the leftover fries!

Unfortunately, they were ancient leprechaun fries of yore, which, as everybody knows, were deep fried in whale blubber. While juicy and tantalizing hot out of the cauldron, a couple of hundred years tends to turn the fat hard and rancid. Each fry becomes wax-like, almost like a bar of soap, except a lot grodier. Like the kind of moldy, soapy nub you find wallowing in a stagnant puddle on the corroded sink of a third-rate gas station lavatory. The kind that gives you visions of necrotizing fasciitis when you consider even touching it, let alone washing with it. Or in this case, let alone EATING it. ;)

Fortunately, the bottom had rotted out of the treasure chest, so when we lifted it, the fries fell in a disjointed pile on the ground. We had what we wanted: the latch on the chest. It was the ancient latch of the Golden Shiekh of Sambia, famed for its wish-granting capabilities.

Unfortunately, the latch was also famed for it's curse. True, the lock was able to grant one wish smaller than a breadbox to anyone intrepid enough to turn the key and open the chest, but it came at a terrible price. You see, the latch of the Golden Sheikh of Sambia is better known to the peoples of the Arabian Peninsula as the "Latch of the Black Wish". It is said that in the days of antiquity a thief, when he could not gain admittance into the Pearly gates kept by Saint Peter, returned again by night and removed the sacred latch. However, when he crossed the threshold, the thief vanished instantly into nothingness. His tainted soul was incinerated by sheer glory, leaving behind only two tendrils of intertwining incense smoke. The angels had placed the lock upon the gates of heaven not so much to keep the sinner out as to protect him from the consequences of unworthy entry.

And so, the lock tumbled to the earth, its secrets forgotten . . . until its recovery by an Ethiopian mystic. She had the lock mounted upon a fine chest, composed of spun silver, Grenadill wood, and tiger bones, then presented the whole as a tribute to the Golden Sheikh of Sambia. Any who wished upon the lock and turned the key would find their wish inside the chest. However, the key-bearer never lived to enjoy it; for upon unlatching the lock to the Pearly Gates they instantly found themselves transported across the threshold of heaven, ready or not.

Fortunately, Mary was about to die of simultaneous dysentery, snakebite and exhaustion, so we all figured she would be better off turning the key anyway. She agreed. I mean, our other option was Nathan, but he'd only contracted the measles a day ago and probably still had a couple of good wagon repairs left in him.

The decision was made: Mary was going to heaven. She gave us each a last kiss on the cheek and took the key in her hand.

I just looked at your tumblr, and that "you have your mother's eyes" thing you have on there totally cracked me up. XD

Now, story time! Once upon a time there were a bunch of people that I wanted to follow on tumblr, so it kind of makes me want to join. But, I don't want to have to figure out a whole other website, and have to keep track of it...I feel like dA is enough. So I don't know what to do. THE END

Haha, it cracked me up too!

That's where I was too. And then I was like "DA is for finished stuff, and I post sketches on my personal blog, but my blog has information too sensitive to reveal to people I don't know: I should have some other place to post sketches too! Conclusion: TUMBLR"

Might be obsolete pretty soon though if this google plus thing is all it's cracked up to be.

I might have to get a tumblr someday for those reasons...if I do, I'll remember to follow you!

I'm not sure what this google thing is though.
