1. Hey Tumblr! 

    When I first joined the fantastic team here at Powell’s, we were a lil’ bookstore Tumblr with about 4,000 followers. Thousands of quotes, viral book photos, and staff picks later, we’re a bigger bookstore Tumblr with 21,000 followers. And now it’s time for me to move on.

    The good news is that we’re hiring a social media marketing coordinator! You can find all the details by clicking “Employment” at the bottom of our homepage.

    I’ve had way too much fun sharing baby animals pics and bookish things with you. Case in point: Roo and Penny, my new favorite BFFs.

    The correct answer is always: TRY BOOKS.

    Carrie Brownstein Is Your Tumblr Dreamcrush

    She was a 90s riot grrrl, hung out with Kurt Cobain, and had a music blog on NPR. She worked briefly at an ad agency (Portland-based, of course) before she decided to write comedy; in Portlandia, the IFC sketch comedy series she co-created — now wrapping up its third season — she plays a feminist bookstore owner, new age helicopter mom, kinky greaser, newspaper blog editor, and, of course, herself (alongside creative partner Fred Armisen). Now she’s got a new band, Wild Flag. And a shitload of blogs devoted to her every move.

    In real life, though, Carrie Brownstein isn’t quite so different from the fans who adore her. She once cried because she loved Madonna. She had a crush on Danny from New Kids on the Block. She wrote fan letters and plastered rock posters on her teenage bedroom wall. Portlandia, she says, is like its own version of a fan ballad — an ode to the endearing absurdities of her Pacific Northwest home. On the eve of tomorrow’s season finale, Brownstein talks fandom, emoticons, and what was so great about the 90s.

    Customer: Did you used to work at Powell’s, or do you just have a t-shirt?
    Jenn: I just have a t-shirt! Because it’s a great bookstore.
    Customer: Definitely, I have one too.
    Jenn: And they have a really good tumblr. Do you know about tumblr?
    Customer: I do! I just got back from a road trip actually, from Montana to here, with elk antlers, that I documented on there.

    We would read that blog!
