One week from today I am LA bound. I’ve started an “L.A.” board on Pinterest to track restaurants, museums, cafes, venues … whatever … that I need to try. If you have suggestions, please send them to me. I want to know your favorite places in LA!!
I’ll probably ask this several times a day between now and October, so please be patient and thanks in advance!
Yes, please. I would love to see this beautiful group of people receive some statues.
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…
Aaron Paul is holding a Breaking Bad scavenger hunt in advance of Monday’s Emmys! Get on it, go find some awesome Breaking Bad stuff!
Let the pillaging of LA BEGIN!
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.
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,
