officialbeastieboys:

OK people, please get ready for the world premiere of the explicit epic
length video/ short film for “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win.”

Though no Yeti’s were harmed in the making of this video, please remember, that there are some scenes that are a rugged and raw depiction of a world that is at times violent, and even frightening.

That being said, please heat up the butter and the popcorn, sit back and enjoy. Directed by Spike Jonze and written by Adam Yauch, we hope you have fun.

Video: What is Mozilla?

brettgaylor:

I’ve been working on and off for many months on a video to explain Mozilla to the uninitiated. The home for the video is now on the Get Involved page of the mozilla.org site, and I’m excited that it will be part of a process for getting people excited about pitching in at Mozilla. You can watch it below: mega hats off to Rainer Cvillink, Mozilla’s in-house video wizard, for all the great camera work, and to Jenn Strom for editing and motion grapnics.

Tweet from Tumblr
We’re testing Twitter integration on Tumblr.  You can set it up by going to the special address: http://www.tumblr.com/settings?twitter
This will automatically send your Tumblr posts to Twitter (you can toggle this when posting). If you have people following you in both places, it’s an easy way to stay active on Twitter, or just to let your Twitter followers know about your Tumblr posts.
If you’re like us, and only follow a few people on Twitter, you should try enabling “Show Twitter updates in my Dashboard” to get all of your friends’ updates in one place.

Introducing: Submissions

There’s an interesting genre of blog that is more about the community than the author.

At some point you’ve probably seen Eat Sleep DrawThis is why you’re fat, or Cute Overload.

The author starts posting about a topic they care about, the readers start contributing, and before you know it, the author has become a curator.

Tumblr has always been uniquely suited for this type of blog.  In fact, 6 of them have gone from Tumblr blog to book deal in the last year.

So today we’re very excited to release Submissions, a feature to streamline community-driven blogs.  You can enable it from your blog’s Customize screen to let your readers submit posts via web.

Now testing: Pages
You can now add static pages to your blog, with a few very useful options. Head to your blog’s Customize page and click the “Pages” menu to get started. There are currently three types of Pages you can create:
Standard Layout. Create a simple page with a title and body using your current theme.
Custom Layout. Create a page with a completely separate layout.
Redirect. Forward a route to a page on another domain. Useful for maintaining links when moving your domain name over to Tumblr.
Developers: Check out the Theme Docs for instructions on implementing the new {block:Pages} tag.

Now Live: The Tumblr Spotlight
We’re always amazed by the breadth and creativity we find on Tumblr, and we’re always looking for better ways for you to showcase your talents and discover other interesting blogs. With the new Spotlight, we’ve set aside a special place to highlight a few of these blogs that truly inspire us.
With your help, we’ve added hundreds to this Spotlight over the last few weeks and we’ll be adding many more, along with new categories and new languages. If you know of a great blog that we’ve missed or have a category you’d like to see, please send it to editors@tumblr.com.
It’s also much easier to find the People You Know tool where you can look up your friends on Tumblr. Note: We’ve moved the option to disable email lookups to your Preferences page.
