First, at 1464 notes as of midday on January 31, 2014, it’s a gif of raining mushrooms.
Is it because of the Mario connection? Or because mushrooms look penile? Or do people on Tumblr just like mushrooms?
Second, this artwork from a video game I’ve never played (and I’m willing to bet most video gamers in the English-speaking world also haven’t played). A beautiful Japanese nightmare.
Third, the SNL “County Roses” sketch, which I posted on Tumblr just to redirect people to my blog post about how great it is.
Fourth, this J.C. Leyendecker illustration, which despite promoting Easter manages to be gayer than gay sex.
Fifth, keeping up the theme established by No. 4 on the list, the gayest anti-malaria P.S.A. you will ever see.
Sixth, proof of a trend.
Seventh, a screengrab I took from The Rescuers when I wondered why Madame Medusa doesn’t get a place in the pantheon of Disney big bads.
Eighth, me realizing that Funky Kong basically dresses like a gay stereotype — though whether a male gay stereotype or a female gay stereotype depends on what neighborhood you live in.
Ninth, the Frankstenstein character from the fighting game Darkstalkers — yet another exhibit in my exploration of homoeroticism in video games. Hey, if I don’t explore it, who will?
And tenth, a gloriously Yoshitaka Amano-esque illustration of Adventure Time’s Princess Bubblegum by Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar.
It’s very pink, isn’t it? In both senses, I guess. But that’s what stuck in 2014: gay shit.
