Want: Batman Tumbler Golf Cart

This golf cart was customized to look like the Tumbler from the Chris Nolan Batman films and it was actually used on the Warner Bros. lot where the films were made! This is perfect for ridding your local golf course of unwanted villainy or doing donuts in the mall parking lot until security calls the cops, in which case just try and catch me!

This is up for grabs on eBay for a ridiculous price and the auction ends in three days. Buy it for me or don’t buy it at all.

In Case You Haven’t Heard, Yahoo Bought Tumblr for $1.1 Billion
If we ever decided to shut down Albotas, Tumblr would be worth like $15.

5,000 Posts And Counting!!!
Technically, this is post #5,008. The actual 5,000th post is this one about synchronized dancing mascots in Japan.
Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of our Tumblr followers for all the likes and reblogs. As of this writing we have 113,770 followers and we’re averaging around 5,000-7,000 new followers each week. Craziness!
Also, huge thanks to everyone who regularly chimes in in the comments section and on our Facebook page. You know who you are. Reblogs are always nice, but we really dig interacting with you guys on a more chatty level.
We have big things in store for 2013 and you’ve probably already noticed a few changes like the new addition to our staff and swanky new video content that we’ll be rolling out on the reg.
Even more awesomeness is on the way. Look out.
Thanks everyone. Albotas <3’s you.
Sincerely,
Robby “brownkidd” Weiss, your fearless editor-at-large.

blogLIFE: The Albotas.com Story

This is the first of many in a series of short vlogumentaries depicting the ins and outs and ups and downs of trying to make a living as a geek culture blogger. Told from the perspective of Albotas.com founder Robby “brownkidd” Weiss, blogLIFE is a quest for the American dream in the wild frontier known as the blogosphere. Take a peek behind the curtain and witness the inner workings, occasional perks, and constant struggles associated with running a semi-popular Tumblr site.

Huge thanks to the rad peeps over at Sony who made this possible by donating an  Alpha NEX-F3 to our cause.

A Little Bit On Our New Look
As some of you may have noticed over the weekend, we change up the site layout. We&#8217;ve received several notices from you guys about problems with the previous theme&#8217;s loading issues, so we hope this new theme remedies the situation.
Along with the new look, we&#8217;re also changing up our posting style to deliver more bit-sized nuggets of awesome each day. Don&#8217;t worry, we&#8217;ll also be doing some lengthy editorial stuff as well which will be indicated by it&#8217;s bigness on the site&#8217;s front page - much like this very post.
We&#8217;re still having a problem with getting the Disqus comments to show up correctly, so if any web-savvy readers wanna&#8217; help us out, we&#8217;re using the Stacky 5 theme and really have no clue how to properly tweak it. Email brownkidd@albotas.com if you feel like lending a hand.
Anywho, hope you all dig the site&#8217;s new layout and direction. We have some killer original content lined up for the future. In the meantime, stay tuned and stay awesome!

A Vlog About Blogging: Albotas Behind The Scenes

I wanted to have this up yesterday, but it took my computer exactly 756 minutes to render the complete video before I uploaded it to YouTube. Future videos will be way shorter since I got the general introduction out of the way.

This is basically a look into how I run the site, promote it, find news, etc. If anything, I’ll at least be able to look back on these videos and see how the site progresses.

Please leave comments, subscribe on YouTube, and leave video replies to be featured on a future episode!

Tumblr Error Image Soothes My Rage
Tumblr breaks so often that the auto-complete text in my address bar  says “We’ll Be Back Shortly” rather than “Tumblr.” They recently  replaced the all too familiar error message with a drawing (courtesy of  The Oatmeal) of “tumbeasts” wreaking havoc on their servers. Very cute.
