Jeronimus Dekker’s Tales from Weirdland is a “Sentient Youtube channel”. I’ll be honest, I don’t know much at all about it. What I do know is that I am obsessed with the associated Tales from Weirdland tumblr blog. It’s a regular stream of ephemera that feels like it was curated specifically for me. If you like to browse images of fantastical concept art, animation, illustration, and photography then this is a place you will love. Its really beautiful.
I love tumblr. My dash has been on a pretty amazing hot streak lately:
- Here’s a complete rework of Anakin Skywalker’s tragic character arc . This is a tour de force of tumblr discourse. I would watch the fuck out of this.
- The evolution of clown species. Tumblr is back on it’s glorious bullshit.
- Here’s a long tumblr group imporv that tells the story of a Roomba with a knife taped to it becomes humanity’s honored representative to a galactic UN. I know, right!?
There is a subreddit where people are using Google to translate the dialogue of Star Wars movies into Chinese, and then back to a English. Then they are actually dubbing them onto the scenes. The dubbing is pretty well done. Here are a few stills that will show you the comedy genius of this idea.
The Tumblr link mentions something similar for Lord of the Rings which I am now off to find!
The story of the RMS Carpathia, a ship that tried to save the sinking Titanic is genuinely spellbinding.
A long Tumblr discourse on shipping in the Fineas & Ferb universe? Yes please and thank you!
Who’s a good boy? Grinch is a good boy!
A great discussion of the merits of Wikipedia. I never knew there was a Simple English translation option for complex articles!
An amazing meme with an ensuing education on blades. Yet another example of the comments used for lawful good on Tumblr. I’m not naive enough to think there aren’t toxic shitheads out there in the Tumblerverse, but I’ve managed to miss them so far and it feels nice.
It was right there, in front of my face, the whole damn time.
