Bookoisseur

I read. I write. I spend all together too much time on the internet. I talk incessantly about books, TV and movies. I write for Hello Giggles, and tweet frequently as Bookoisseur.

Isn’t that interesting.
Tumblr emailed me to tell me they deleted my post calling out the dude who sent me a rape threat.
But hasn’t banned the dude who sent me a rape threat, even though I reported him.
I guess Tumblr just wants to make their site safer for people who send rape threats than those who receive them.
I guess it’s not considered harassment to send rape threats, but if you name the person who sends you rape threats, you are harassing them.
INTERESTING

Here’s a whole article on this. LINK

Irony, we meet again.

Anonymous asked: We were reading Krapp's Last Tape in my English course in university. We talked about for an entire two hours, and all the while I kept thinking "are these homosexual undertones actually there or do I just spend too much time on tumblr?" Have you read it, and do you have any insight on if that is actually there? (I felt a little awkward about bringing it up to my professor if I was just imagining it). I can be more specific if you have read it.

I have not read it. The interesting thing I find in a lot of literature debate/discussion/dissection is that there is often a lot of wondering about what’s really meant by the writer whether it’s a feeling, an allusion to something like homosexual undertones, or a projection of feelings on a character or place.

We can’t really know unless we can ask the writer, right? 

I once read that a good book reviewer will tell you how a book changed them and a bad book reviewer will tell you about the book. If you look at it that way, you may see undertones that other people don’t because that’s what you’re thinking about…probably because you’re on tumblr so much. :D

PSA: If you ever get a Tumblr ask or fanmail from ‘dwtumblrhere’ it’s actually from us at the Doctor Who Tumblr.
So here’s proof. And a confession. In a single post. Presented by an Adipose. Which we made while watching TV in the big BBC America living room.
Ok. That should finally do it.


This is just a reminder of our reminder of the thing you should be reminded of.

I got multiple messages from DWTumblrHere. I believed. I still have the post-it too.Now I just gotta find an adipose for my desk.

Attn: Tumblr Staff - You have a glitch.

Dear Tumblr,

Please fix this glitch:

When I try to reblog something from a person’s actual blog rather than my dashboard, it freezes. It looks fine, but the “create post” button is dead. I can click and click and click on it and absolutely nothing happens.

This has gotten incredibly frustrating and makes me not want to follow new people or reblog things from people I don’t already know just because of the hassle.
