The Emmy’s are this coming Monday and our friends at The Hollywood Reporter think there’s reason to believe Orange is the New Black will win Best Comedy.
What evidence does THR have?
History, both recent and sort-of-recent.
For one, OITNB picked up 3 statues at the Creative Arts Emmys this past weekend — more than any other nominated comedy — including that for best casting director, which THR says is key. Why? Well:
Four-time reigning winner ABC’s Modern Family nabbed the casting and series trophies for its first season in 2010; six years earlier, in 2004, Fox’s Arrested Development saw the same sequence of wins. And NBC’s 30 Rock nabbed comedy casting trophies each of the three years it also won best comedy.
What do you think? Are they onto something? Suppose we’ll find out Monday…


Yes, please. I would love to see this beautiful group of people receive some statues.

Goodbye! (but also hellos)
As one of my colleagues asked me today about what would happen to our tumblr account after I’ve left, I realized I had not shared the news with our tumblr friends yet: I am leaving the American Library Association at the end of this month. My partner and I have decided to move to the West Coast and see whether we can put our film degrees to use.
The good news is that my colleagues, Jessica and Jazzy will take over and run libraryadvocates entirely once I’m gone. In fact, they’ve already started posting intermittently. So I hope you’ll keep following. They’ll keep up the good content (probably even better!) of gifs, fandom miscellany, and opportunities to advocate for libraries and the values they embody, of course (probably stuff I haven’t even listed too!).
I’ll miss you all and it’s been wonderful hearing from and interacting with the lot of you tumblarians,
Jacob


Even though I’m not a tumblrarian, I’m a library enthusiast. I enjoy this blog very much and will miss this iteration. That said, outstanding .gif selection.

The study found that, because Facebook friend networks are often composed of ‘weak ties’ where the threshold for friending someone is low, users were often negatively surprised to see their acquaintances express political opinions different from their own. This felt alienating and, overall, made everyone less likely to speak up on political matters (and therefore, create content for Facebook).
the names of some food blogs are SO over the top

Think: My Most Incredible Food Life Journey or My super absolutely fabulous life, can’t you tell by the photos I curate on facebook? or Simple extravagant decadent life bites.

That kind of thing.

You know what, LA, I’m getting really sick of all your refrigerator-free apartments.

I know I’m moving to you, and not the reverse, but seriously, at least let me get there before you starting chewing me up.

why would you ever idolize cops when firefighters exist

yeah seriously have you ever heard of “corrupt firefighter” 

what would a ‘corrupt firefighter’ even be. he put out that fire with a little TOO much water. he was a little rough with the cat he rescued from a tree for a little old lady

I’m sorry to do this. You seem like nice people.
