WE BLOG TOGETHER.


I read a lot of blogs. I read a lot of blogs about...everything. I read a lot of blogs about nothing. Heck, I remember when blogs used to be called e/n websites, which stood for everything/nothing. Remember that? Heck I remember when the computer whistled at you, I know the secrets of atdt, I know the passwords to sooth the angry bbs! I know the haunted bones of the internet. Well, in the spirit of revisting the concept behind the webcomic post I wrote, I thought I'd speak about some of the blogs I read. Now, I'm all new fangled & sparkly, & run these things through my feed aggregator, but I went through the trouble to fish them out & write up a little blurb about them. In case you were curious what you were missing.

The Force is Strong is a quirky picture blog about everyone's favorite Space Opera, Star Wars. Number One is a blog...of pictures...of Commander William T. Riker. RetroFuturism is a blog about yesterday's tomorrow. The Faking Hoaxer makes fake UFO & space disaster videos that defy incredulity. Gamæcca is the research blog of author Nicola Griffith, whose blog blog is also worth reading. Worm-stung God is the epic Norse translation blog you've been waiting for! Strange Maps is a bunch of...weird...maps. BiblioOdyssey is a massive collection of gorgeous images. The Morae River is a stunning exploration of fictional flora & fauna.

Raising a Psychopath is a blog about raising your kid. When he's a psychopath. For real. Tiny Art Director is a father being yelled at, adorably, by his daughter. Brazen Careerist is the advice column slash blog of Penelope Trunk, who, as a woman with Asperger's, sees the world just akilter enough to help it make sense. Savage Love is the sex advice blog everyone you kno reads. Slacktivist writes a blog about politics, religion, & the occasional indepth review of the Left Behind books. Derren Brown is a noted mentalist, & he & his team update this blog.

Bai Ling is...more dada than Dada, more surreal than Sir Real. Jezebel is a Gawker blog marginally about feminism. io9 is a Gawker blog marginally about science fiction. Gothamist is the New York City blog everyone reads. Best Week Ever is a big ole media mashup. Playing DnD with Porn Stars is exactly what it says it is, & actually a good gaming blog, to boot. Vaguely NSFW but not actually pr0n. Haute Macabre is a gothy fashion blog full of awesome outfits.

I have a hard time getting over how racist the Gothamist comments usually are. It's like reading the Post.

Thanks for the mention, mister sir! One way or another, soon I'll be back to Norse blogging full time after this series of meditations on Saints football...

Gothamist can get pretty crazy racist; the post on that guy who ended up arrested & with his plane diverted for terrorist because he prayed with his tefillin-- the commentors are like "I'm supposed to have to know how .0001% of the world's population prays? No, eff that, he should go to jail!" Uh, no guys, you just aren't supposed to freak out when dudes are slightly non-WASP. Not totally, anyway.

Oh I should have mentioned that your blog is in the "Skip" pile now that you just talk about sports. JOKING. Mostly.

C'mon, I just talked about a werewolf! You love that!
