In Which We Honor The Man Who Killed Tumblr

Celebrate Good Times Come On It's A Celebration

We make fun of Danish a lot in this space because he has one of the worst Tumblrs I have ever read. Just kidding I check it all the time and am mad when it's not updated. He is so the master of making us understand why we shouldn't enjoy things as much as we're enjoying them.

It is his birthday today. Happy Birthday Danish.

Danish is legendary for his fashion sense, with some even rumoring at one point that he was Christian in a fey Mr. Garrison-esque costume. He is also notorious for holding a beer (or "brewski" as he so charmingly calls it) in his hand when you take a picture of him.

Like most savants, Aziz looks best when conveniently positioned next to a hottie.

my caption for this picture is van wilder: the rise of taj

I wish that every time Danish tumbled, he would write me an e-mail that said, "HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM TUMBLES?"

Thanks for the memories big guy.

"One Pure Thought (Toddla T remix)" - Hot Chip (mp3)

"Sensual Seduction (Snoop Dogg cove)" - Hot Chip (mp3)

Oh wait I like this picture a lot because it looks like the clouds are under his command, and he is the central figure of an Ayn Rand novel and his last name is Taggart so he is crowned Danish Taggert and he controls the clouds.

How did Danish and I meet? Was it fate, or the fact that Danish had a bad reputation in the Wayland dorm and thus had to meet other people? His roommate was an open toolbox. His roommate the next year was even worse: a person whose for whom the two most important words were venture capital.

Whenever we did interact for the first time, one word was whispered into my brain. Say it was God, say it was Doug, say what you want.

The voice said, bloggeur.

What does the future hold in store for this 25 or 26 year old male? I thought this day would never come. If I have to deal with the Son of Aziz, I am going to retire from blogging and emigrate to Israel.

young danish before life got to him, bottom right

Best of Danish for real:

He Studied Internet Time Capsules

He Punk’d Kanye - Twice

He Can Be So Cruel

He Knows All The Best Remixes

He’s Never Been Wrong

He Likes Molly More Than He Will Admit

He’s A Regular Conspiracy Theorist

He’s a Metronomy Fanboy

He Had The Hardest Childhood of Anyone In World History Except Potentially Jesus.

Now that I realize Tumblr is just a prettier LiveJournal, I'm having second thoughts.
