arguments that should be used against Yahoo buying out Tumblr:
- their initial offer is too low
- possible unnecessary ad space
- stricter regulations
arguments that should not be used against Yahoo buying out Tumblr:
- “TUMBLR IS MEANT FOR OUTCASTS AND WEIRDOS ONLY”
- “NO ONE ELSE IS ALLOWED TO TOUCH OUR SACRED GROUND”
- “FANDOMS UNITE AGAINST FACEBOOKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Just only 13 years old, Zev (Fiddle Oak) creates a fantasy dreamland through his photographs. His camera is named Betsy. Zev’s sister and assistant Nellie is 17. They enjoy working and creating together. The magic of Fiddle Oak cannot be described in words; no word that already exists can accurately sum up the extreme talent and wonder of Zev and Nellie.

The Doctor Who tumblr asked for my autograph, so here’s me in the most Whovian clothes I possess, in front of my DW mural!
Lol at Starkey getting all pissy over Hilary Mantel’s Cromwell novels. The little shit.
Speaking as someone who enjoyed history at school but ultimately went on to study STEM subjects in sixth form and university, if the point of a historian is to teach others about the past, then yeah, Mantel’s unorthodox methods should count.
In years of his stuff being produced I’ve never once felt the inclination to learn about the Tudor period, but one read of Wolf Hall and I was a) hooked and more importantly b) encouraged to go and find out more. I started reading the Wolf Hall books, then went on to look up actual academics.
Also, it’s telling that he hasn’t once complained about the male historical fiction writers. The two he goes for are coincidentally both female and popular. Hmm. This is the man who thinks talking about women in history turns it into a soap opera, so that says a lot, really…
In terms of getting people learning about history or interested in their country’s past, I’d take the “fun” novels over Starkey any day - man is a misogynist, racist, child-bullying self-hating reactionary, and perhaps he should be the one who “sticks to his own patch.” (what a ridiculous phrase - so what, is she just meant to stop writing the series?) If he stayed in his own little repressed corner of academia and never came out onto programmes like BBCqt, we’d all be that bit happier.
