Stage One: See many, many animated gifs of a tv show on tumblr. Most of them reposted by misterkevo.
Stage Two: Decide I have no interest in said tv show.
Stage Three: Secretly have much interest in said tv show.
Stage Four: Look at all gifs for said tv show and create story in my head about what the tv show is actually about.
Stage Five: Decide to look on Netflix and Hulu to see if said tv show is streaming online. If not, abandon tv show.
Stage Six: If said tv show IS streaming online, start watching it. Trick my Kevin into watching with me if at all possible.
Stage Seven: Start to wonder if maybe I should avoid tumblr until I am caught up with all episodes.
Stage Eight: Decide not to avoid tumblr but to not look at punchlines of animated gifs so as not to be totally spoiled. This is usually completely useless.
Stage Nine: Watch all episodes of tv show and feel accomplished and proud of self for still being able to immerse self in popular culture.
Stage Ten: Wonder how to make animated gifs. Look it up, decide it is way too much fucking work, and go back to Stage One with new tv show……
glad to be part of the process.
Kevo’s twitter cracked me on Doctor Who. Tumblr broke me on Sherlock. Kevo’s tumblr snapped me into watching Teen Wolf, and at some point there is going to be an almost blow by blow of our texts back and forth about this goddamn show.
Hmmmm… Supernatural, Merlin, X-Files, and a bunch of others are shows that got bumped higher in my queue thanks to Tumblr.
I just wish I could convince Kevo to try Sherlock, but I think tumblr soured him on it :(
