Blogs Continued

I am working on getting art supplies and at the Outreach program all day today...no time to write so...I'll finish listing the blogs I went to visit...

Maybe in the first year I started blogging a fellow blogger came up with a cool idea to once a week post a list of blogs one visited and left a comment on. It kind of faded away but I thought I'd make a list of blogs I visited and commented on today surfing around...

1.) A Blog About Nowt: Today Asterisk posted a memoriam to Buddy Holly. I can't beleve Buddy Holly was only 22 years old.
2.) From A Lofty Perch: has some terrific photos today
3.) Always something fishy over at Mister Anchovy's.
4.) "Bridging racial gaps one post at a time" at Diversity Ink
5.) Queens have sex? Apparently they do because Wandering Coyote wrote a book review about "Sex With The Queen".
6.) The Hubs has new posts
7.) Don't know what to read next? Check out Cat-Trampled Reviews
8.) Vote for "best picture" at Malcolm's blog.
9.) Beautiful photos
10.) One Gal's Musing wins the prize as most unpretentious blogger. I like that about her.
11.) "This Blog Sits At" is always thoughtful. I love his books and Stagg and I interviewed Grant in New York City this summer.
12.) The X Spot has articulate renderings of strange real-life events in history and media.
13.) Fond of Snape love Johnny Depp, The Joker, Alan Rickman and photography.
14.) "Living Oprah" has a book deal. No more blog :( Well, her experiment of doing everything Oprah said to do was only for one year...so it makes sense she's going to write about it now. I wish her lots of luck with the book!
15.) Tweetey's blog usually describes some fairly interesting neighbours and people she works with. Today I just told her sometimes I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
16.) "Apartment Therapy" is just that...cool stuff.
17.) 3r highlights eco-friendly products.
18.) There isn't an option to comment at Scrap, our friend Danny's clothing design site, but I stop in to see what he's up to.
19.) Better Living Through Design
20.) Love this blog for music: Stereogum
21.) Also Chromewaves
22.) More Design
24. "Molecule Of The Day". No, seriously. Where else can you read: These lipid assemblies are pretty counterintuitive to begin with - something similar and equally amazing happens when you use soap. You're generating a bunch of spheres with negative charges packed closely together. All this is because the water wants to interact with itself so strongly that the greasy tails make their egress from bulk solution into the nonpolar interiors of self-assemblies ("micelles")

25.) A fellow who specializes in circadian rhythms and photoperiodism. What is a circadian rhythm? Click the yellow text. He writes a fair bit about animal life and natural history.

He has a great quote on his blog today from Winston Churchill...a motto I, in fact, like to practice, as anybody who knows me will recognize:

If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.

26.) The Preacherman always has the BEST stories and anecdotes.
27.) Cynnie is living a much more interesting life than she thinks, somewhere warm
28.) Sociologist Pjazzypar writes about change and ideas and traditions. And music.
29.) Tim's got digital art going on.
30.) "The Pinnochio Theory" is deep. Interesting post on celebrity.

I'll forgive you for not mentioning me. Mainly 'cause I forget to mention me as often as not...hic...

I must admit I'm purturbed. Is that a word? I'm pissed...

I wander over to loads of blogs and say nice things....well...maybe not always nice but it's me after all...and they never recippr...recipo...er...pop back over.

Still. I like 'em so they can fuck off.
