While SAME HAT (the blog) has been on temporary hiatus, SAME HAT TUMBLR has continued going strong. I have some theories (capital-T "THEORIES") about TumblrGeneration and the Tumblrfication of how youth discoveries artifacts of cultural history -- theories that come out mostly once I've had a few glasses of whisky. All that considered, and aside, Tumblr is one of the most interesting and jarring places for discovering new artists (duh, right?).

Rather than attempt a list of ALL TUMBLRS SPANNING ALL ASSORTED INTERESTS INCLUDING-BUT-NOT-LIMITED-TO COMICS (exhausting and unfocused!), I thought It'd be more fun to toss up a quick post of our favorite "SAME HAT-esque" Tumblrs we are following and enjoying. I'll start with a few that feel like "siblings" to Same Hat... if you don't mind adding your faves to the comments, I'll go ahead and build out a community list!!

NOTE: Special points to Tumblrs that actually scan/post new, additive materials to the Tumblrverse. Tumblrs that ONLY EVER RT images are weak/lame.

(To note, I see posts from all of these fleetingly via Dashboard and haven't read all their posts, so apologies if I accidentally linked to gross/intense stuff here!)

[PS: The other things about the SAME HAT TUMBLR is that you can ask any random question you might have and I'll probably answer it! Just click Ask me anything! and submit.]
