This is Doug. He is the reason why I know about the existence of Tumblr. Without him, this place probably wouldn’t have been around for another 3-6 months. Also, I wouldn’t have met many of the people I have through Tumblr, nor would I have participated in LA Movie Club and what not.
We went to college together out in Orange County. After we graduated, we inexplicably saw each other in random places (Wolf Parade Concert, LA Clippers Game, Comic-Con). Once I joined Tumblr, we became a bit more buddy buddy and the chance run-ins turned into meet-ups on purpose.
It is this man, who you can thank/hate for bringing me aboard. You’re a gentleman & a scholar sir. High fives all the way around.
