Tumblr Is Pretty Awesome

I’ve been messing around with Tumblr for the last week. Its pretty awesome.

Basically its a blogging platform thats had all the bulk stripped from it. The Lotus Elise of blogs you could say.

Lotus Elise

Posting is easy as pie. Plus it has quick options for inserting images, videos, music, and anything else embeddable.

But my favorite feature, this is slightly geeky, is that I can just point the A-Record for a domain and/or sub-domain name I own to tumblrs servers and BAM custom blog. Why wordpress.com hasn’t done this already is beyond me.

Anyway here’s my tumblr blog tumblr.erikpersson.com

If you thought the US DMV was bad…

If you thought the DMV in the US was a horrible tortuous proccess, you should read about the process in China.

My heart sank when the military uniform lady told me the forms must be filled with a felt-tip or fountain pen (I used a ballpoint pen, sinfully). I was grateful when she allowed me to trace all my writings with a pen she provided. I felt like a kindergarten kid (look Mom, I traced.) She examined my documents for about 5 silent minutes and started this lightening fast blurry chopping sequence. I was told to wait for few minutes for my “permission certificate for the test.”

Sounds like fun. I wonder why China hates ballpoints.
