Hey guys. I’m sick. I don’t mean “crazy, cool, insane.” I mean I’m ailing. Some of the people at work suggested I ride the subway more often to help build up my immune system, so if you see a cranky dude in a bathrobe and bunny slippers on the 6 train eating chicken soup today, that’d be me. But no matter. The important thing is that we’ll be here for Tumblr Tuesday, every Tuesday until the end of time, no matter what.
Jay Parkinson, MD
Jay Parkinson is the doctor of the future. This MD from Williamsburg, Brooklyn completed residencies in Pediatrics and Preventive Medicine, got a Masters in Public Health, and was named one of the top 10 most creative people in healthcare by Fast Company. Now, Doctor Jay spends his days running the startup he co-founded which aims to connect patients with doctors. And, of course, he writes about all this and more on his Tumblr blog.
Fancy Fast Food

It might still be bad for you, but it looks so good. An extreme food makeover from FFF can turn some Taco Bell into Tacobellini, some McDonald’s into McSteak & Potatoes, and some Burger King into a BK Quiche.

Music for Your Coffee
Grab a cup of coffee and press play. Period. Actually, I think this will work with other beverages as well. Let’s try tea. Check. Orange juice? Yes. Smoothy? Yup. Pumpkin Spice Latte… Pumpkin Spice Latte… Weird, nothing’s happening.
