SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!

True shit
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features.  One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market.  By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users.  Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way.  It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community.  With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users.  Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily.  A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated.  By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.  
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger.  I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed.  No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users.  Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadil
As much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility.  I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.

We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.

im laughing because every single comment on that article says its a terrible idea. not one person agrees and that’s saying something



Here is a petition to Stop yahoo from buying, though who knows what good it’ll do :(

Here is a petition to Stop yahoo from buying, though who knows what good it’ll do :( 

Hello all-

It’s been far too long since this blog has been updated (and even longer that it’s been updated with my work).

Without delving too much into the past half a year or so, many changes have taken place (most for the better) that have derailed and rerailed me  in so many ways.  (That sounds dirty but I’m OK with that.) 

Nevertheless, I’m terribly excited for what lies ahead…

I’m unbelievably thrilled to be on board with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, and am very pleased to present you all with the groundbreaking campaign for LIP TAR + NAIL LACQUER DUOS. The campaign features the trio DWV: Detox (who I had the pleasure of working with), Willam Belli (makeup by Courtney Tichman), and Vicky Vox (makeup by Valerie P. Garcia).

Without sounding unbearably schmaltzy, I’m shivering with anticipation over what’s to come…

NOTE: OCC’s Lip Tar + Nail Lacquer Duos are available today via Sephora.com, WITH trading cards!

Happy Birthday to a legend whose… everything continues to inspire not only me but anyone with discernable taste.

“One eye is green, the other alternately green and orange. The boots are bright red with two-and-a-half-inch risers. The blouse is orange see-through. The hair, dyed bright carrot, sticks straight up above the brow.”

To celebrate his 66th birthday today, David Bowie broke his long musical silence with his new single “Where We Are Now?” from a forthcoming album due in March. For a more vintage look at Bowie, take a look back at our Nov 9, 1972 cover story.

Before I forget: Happy Birthday to one of the greatest beauty icons (and one of my constant inspirations) Marlene Dietrich.

Above is a shot from a couple years back inspired by Dietrich in “Blonde Venus”.  Shot by one of my favorite photographers to work with, Paul Te, this image remains one of my favorites.
