Pretty much any idea for a Tumblr page is a good one. Case in point: The person who simply posts every Alan Palomo image they can find.
But, OK, this one is really is a great one. Called Fuck Yeah Rock GIFs, the site, created by local music fan and photographer Neff Conner, compiles various shots he's taken at live shows in recent memory and re-appropriates them as animated .gif files -- like the file you see above, of Old 97's frontman Rhett Miller performing his patented "half-Townshend" guitar move during a June 3, 2010, solo performance at the Belmont Hotel.
Just a phenomenal concept all around -- and one that's still in its earliest stages. To date, Conner's posted ten of these animated files to his site, although, he promises, "There's more to come." We hope so. In the meantime, with Conner's permission, we've posted a few more of our favorite .gifs of his after the jump for your viewing pleasure.
