In order to have 10,000 Tumblr followers in today’s Internet age, one has to somehow break the mold of the typical reblogger. Some Tumblrs get by on their carefully curated aesthetic, others draw followers by crafting stunning original content and others just post pictures of their tits. Joel Cusumano does all three of these things.
A self-proclaimed “idiot man child” and alleged “creator of Google.com”, Cusumano started blameaspartame in January 2010 with a mission: to post absurd, hilarious shit on the World Wide Web. The net of today isn’t the same one that Joel grew up with, but in 2012 Joel’s bizarro posts have been met with legions of followers supporting him with likes and reblogs and, in true Tumblr fashion, the occasional hateful anonymous message.

In tumblr years i’m ancient…
So are you as popular irl as you are on Tumblr?
hahah wellll i don’t know if i can gauge that objectively. i have plenty of irl friends but i’m kind of a loner sometimes, i require a lot of “me” time haha. obviously i spend lots of time online … i probably dont go out to as many shows or other social engagements as one might assume. but sure i’m s00per popular yes. what is insanely weird to me is that i’ve been recognized on the street by my followers. most recently some drunk guy in the mission district just yelled my name — i turned around and he was just smiling and was like “nevermind!” and walked off … then he messaged me on tumblr later and was like “hey sorry that was me!”
