Some context please?
I was watching Reality Bites last night -- which other than seeing most of the cast of The Ben Stiller show on the big screen wasn't that good back then and is still not that good now -- and must admit cringing at Ethan Hawke's character. If you were to revisit the characters now I bet Winona Ryder's character would have eventually married someone like Ben Stiller's character unless, of course, Hawke's philosophical angry slacker never actually grew up and out of his self-centered blindness.* See, I can say this with some conviction since, at that time, I was pretty similar to the Hawke's character, right down to tossing off "important quotes" and lording my intelligence over all within earshot.
This got me to thinking about Tumblr and just what works on it and what doesn't. It's primary use is as a platform for curation, where you dig around stuff and share what you hope is of interest with everyone else. It's most successful when sharing images or a story you want to comment on, but I've also noticed a large number of people who use it to collect quotes they find interesting. However they usually pick a few lines of a quote out of context and then don't supply any commentary so often you haven't a clue why the quote is / should be notable. This isn't a huge problem, but it is one that sort of stops the dialogue cold, which seems counter-intuitive on a platform built on propagation and piquing readers' interests to keep the flow going.
I'm interested n what you have to say and what you find moving, but you're going to have to tell me why you find it interesting / inspirational / moving if you expect me to care.
*Don't even start with the Hawke / Ryder OTP thing.
