Hello friends of Things That Look Like Other Things,
Posts on this Tumblr have slowed down, as you may have noticed. Now they are coming to a stop!
That’s because of another Tumblr I’m involved in: Procrastinaut.
Things that Look Like Other Things has become a category there, interspersed with a wide array of tech, design, GIF-y, artistic, and simply amusing delights hand-selected to provide readers with the most pleasing alternative to whatever they are supposed to be doing.
So, for Things That Look Like Other Things and more, please follow Procrastinaut!
