Doctor Who Season 8 Premiere on Tumblr | Above gifset source (x)

Doctor Who has one of the biggest and most highly engaged fandoms on Tumblr, and this weekend they were out in full force again for the 8th season premiere of the show since its reboot; this season featuring a new Doctor, redecorated TARDIS, and the redone show opening seen above, currently the most popular Doctor Who related post on Tumblr. 

From Friday, August 22nd through Sunday, August 24th, 59.5k posts were made about Doctor Who by a community of 796.4k Tumblr users, earning 3.6 million notes. That’s an average of 61 notes per post, putting a single weekend of Doctor Who on par with a month’s worth of posts from the science community

Gifsets were some of the most popular posts made, along with episode recaps and reminders drawn in MS Paint and even a callback to Twelfth Doctor Capaldi’s previous role from The Thick of It.

Gifsets are popular in Tumblr fandom for their ability to replay small moments that lend greater significance to characters and moments in a series that are easy to miss during a show’s initial run. The official Doctor Who Tumblr understands this about their audience and uses a lot of gifsets in their posts. 

Very cleverly done.

The Simpsons + Mondrian + Wine 

"Wine, or maybe not? is a playful, minimalist wine bottle design project that will bring a smile to your face. Inspired by the style of famous Dutch painter Pieter Mondrian, the collaborative project was developed by Russian artist Constantin Bolimond and Dmitry Patsukevich in 1987, the same year The Simpsons first aired on The Tracey Ullman Show. And, the contents of the bottle have remained a mystery ever since.” 

Here’s our recent Simpsons tribute

Planning an out-of-town trip this Labor Day weekend? During the golden age of air travel in the 1960s, perhaps you would have flown from the new TWA Terminal at JFK airport, one of the great masterpieces of expressionistic modern design. Leading modern architect Eero Saarinen and co-designer Kevin Roche designed a distinctive winged form built of carefully engineered concrete and glass to “interpret the sensation of flying.” The terminal was among the first planned with the satellite gates, jetways, and baggage carousels now common in airports.

CHI-bound local at A20-Techny Rd by Amtrak290 on Flickr.

Top: Milwaukee Road passenger train headed toward Chicago at Techny (Northbrook), Illinois. The locomotive is an Erie-built model built by Fairbanks-Morse in the late 1940s, complete with chrome on the front. On the left is the passenger station platform, and on the right in the background is Tower A-20, which controlled trains through this junction until ~1980.

Bottom: Today, Techny is still an important railroad junction through which pass Amtrak, Metra, Canadian Pacific, and Wisconsin and Southern trains. But no passenger trains stop here as they did in the Milwaukee Road era.
