You can create a cname in your dns record so that blog.scribeair.com references scribeair.tumblr.com

So set the first box to be blog and the second one to be scribeair.tumblr.com – sbrichards Aug 14 '11 at 17:31

Setup blog.scribeair.com as an A-record pointing toward Use http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/custom_domains as a reference.
