Ah, the Tumblr blog: proof positive that if you have an interest, no matter how obscure or hilarious, you or someone like you is probably writing about it somewhere on the internet. Here are a few of the best Tumblrs we've come across in the last little while, featuring 'Game of Thrones' fashion obsession, the genius of Facemath, and seeing how the other half lives on Instagram. And we're also checking in with Awesome People Hanging Out Together, because it's exactly what the name implies.

First weird thing about this Tumblr: it's a collection of modern-day fashion items that might possibly appeal to a fictional character - Daenerys Targaryen, the Khaleesi from 'Game Of Thrones'. Second weird thing: it's not the only "a-'Game Of Thrones'-character-might-wear-this-kind-of-thing" Tumblr; there are at least 18 others for different characters. Third strange thing: it's a compelling read. Who knew?


Awesome People Hanging Out Together

There is really nothing to say about this blog that isn't right there in the title. It's just awesome people. And they're hanging out. Together. And we've covered it before: check out our collection of Awesome People Hanging Out Together.
