replied to your post “Who’s the oldest person on Tumblr?”

Are you still alive and on tumblr? I searched “oldest person on tumblr” and got taken back to my own account and it was like looking into a scary mirror. I am 45 this year so evidently not the oldest but it would be nice to hear that you are not dead

Not nearly as nice as it is for ME to hear it! 😀

Just went back and read through my #oldest-person-on-tumblr tag.The oldest active tumblr user I’ve found so far was @fvfarm. I miss seeing her updates; it’s been several years since she posted. I believe she was 90 at that time. I’m holding out hope that she’s still going strong, but has simply decided (sensibly) that she has better things to do.

@dduane still taps the keys here on a regular basis. She’s a decade older than I am. And I’m sure there are many more.

Book…”

I was super disappointed in movie Faramir, and the opportunity to show the character Tolkien created that was a reflection of himself. Up to this point we’ve seen the ring’s affect on Gandalf, Galadriel, even Aragorn hesitates when offered the ring. And we all know it’s hold on Boromir. The movie scene could have been so powerful for us to see a man look at it and never even think twice about not wanting it. He was stronger than anyone (except Sam) when it came to refusing the ring.

It would certainly have been a powerful scene for me. I recently got done re-reading TTT, and those passages felt more important to me than ever given the way movie!Faramir had partly replaced book!Faramir in my head in the years since I’d last read the books.

That said, I sympathize to some degree with the filmmakers’ choices. They were telling a giant epic story in a tiny narrative space (relatively speaking, given the differences between 1,000+ pages of densely layered text and a popular tentpole film series). I wouldn’t have made the same choices they did, and this one is near the top of my list of things I would have tried to handle differently. But that doesn’t seem likely to come up, since I don’t have the aptitude/experience/connections/desire/luck/ginormous planeloads of money it took for them to even be in a position to make those choices.

Photo from a couple of weeks ago. @lies, I think this is a black-crowned night heron, with breeding plumage? That’s my tentative ID, anyway. I’d never seen one before. Not sure what it was doing in this sort of urban area, but we were only a couple of blocks from the water. 

Black-crowned Night-Heron all the way! 😀👍

Every1 on tumblr w some one word url ends up being racist or a scammer or something.

Someone gets popular bc they had a url like “Star” or “ocean” :^) and 2 weeks later there’s like 5 callouts for this guy for saying slurs and using a pyramid scheme to deal cocaine and setting up a fake gofundme so they could buy hentai or something

@lies is the most problematic member of the one word url squad.
