New adventures from my RSS Reader
And so, your correspondent tumbles towards the refuge of the weekend without offering you, the reader, a whole lot of insight, value or entertainment. It’s been a long week, and I doubt any further inspiration will spark anytime soon, so instead I’m falling back on other stuff I’ve read on the internet, that you may or may not enjoy. It’s a old, well-used format, but who doesn’t approve of a little link-love now and then?
Today is so useless, I need to put a beer in it – “put a beer in it” is such a fantastic phrase. I fully intend to wear it out over the next few weeks, to the point that I and everyone around me is sick of it.
Another regular, Steven Harris, appears to be well and truly back on the blogging horse, and the internet is a far finer place for it. Television, The Drug of the Nation is a particularly enjoyable post. Such wonderful bile!
For those of you who enjoy (round-shaped) football, check out his Armchair Liverpool Fan blog too.
So many writing blogs are horrible. I do find some of them oddly compelling with their odd brand of self-help and carny-ism, but they are not exactly nourishing. When I want to read a half-decent writing blog, I head to The Hack Novelist. I think it is pretty good example of blogging “around” the writing process without being dull, and the tone is spot-on.
Love/Hate. I do love a rant on the internet. Raven Mack has been around for years, and he does them better than most. I like how is site is ugly in the way that it makes me nostalgic for that time when all websites were ugly. I feel odd that we’ve come so far that I can feel nostalgic about the internet. That feels very odd. I have something in mind for a future post, but I’m not sure how far I’ll get with it. That’s something to look forward to, eh?
