Tumblr was our favorite place to go in 2010 to look for pictures of Katy Perry, Star Wars crap, Lady Gaga's ass, knives, Christina Hendricks looking pretty, dead rock stars, disposable memes, and random half-naked tattooed girls. It's a magical community of mini-blogs that don't require any thought or deep contemplation.

Why, just now I logged into my own account and saw a painting of Darth Vader, Dick Cheney, and Bob Marley smoking out with a bong on a card table (above). Look at that, more pictures of Tupac. And sure, why not more Prancing Cera?

These are some of our favorite Tumblr accounts to follow. Most are updated daily, or at least hella frequently enough that you won't miss out on anything. Enjoy, and remember, most things on Tumblr are not safe for work. (Unless you work at the Houston Press--in which case you get to look at all the porn you want in the interest of research.)

thedailypatdown.com Pictures of people being patted down by the TSA never get old, especially if it's Kim Kardashian.

classicfratbros.tumblr.com From the land of bullies, nerds, and jocks comes Classic Frat Bros. Kegger!

muslimswearingthings.tumblr.com It's exactly what you think it would be. Muslims wearing things: like shirts, shoes, and even sunglasses. They're so much like us!

www.yourmomwashot.com Your mom was hot before you and your siblings ruined her body forever. This is true unless your mom is Angelina Jolie, in which case you just made your mom hotter somehow.

onthebrod.tumblr.com A retelling of the classic Kerouac novel, in bro form.

hipsterpuppies.tumblr.com Puppies wearing cardigans, wearing black-rimmed glasses, and generally being cooler than you are.

kimjongillookingatthings.tumblr.com The North Korean leader loves looking at things, be it a swimming pool, gum, or Putin.

holymaurymotherofgod.tumblr.com Wall-to-wall Maury Povich, for when you forget to DVR an episode.

hotchicksinbatmanshirts.tumblr.com www.hotchicksinstarwarsshirts.com I would take a chick in a Star Wars or Batman shirt any day over some normal girl wearing a dress and heels.

fakecriterions.tumblr.com Did you ever see the Criterion version of Leprechaun? It's a whole new experience.

imremembering.com If you grew in the late '80s or early '90s, this Tumblr will have you searching for your My Pet Monster and wondering if your dad threw away your Talkboy from Home Alone 2.

You can find me at prisonrodeoclownschool.tumblr.com for plenty of creepy pictures, music videos, and yes, more Katy Perry.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
