I’m Trying To Think But Nothing Happens

When I've run out of time and energy for enough days in a row and can't think of a single interesting thing to tell you about I start writing recommendations about other weblogs that I read on a regular basis. I'm always a little astounded that so many people apparently read what I have to say especially since you could probably get as much continuity and depth by buying the spare changer at the bus station a plastic bottle of hootch and listening for awhile. The thing about this that bothers me the most is that I read a lot of really good weblogs on a regular basis that other people should be paying more attention to. That's allegedly what the link sidebar is all about, but minus the context of an overly verbose bit of context, I don't think it functions as much more than a static bookmark list for me when I'm not sitting at one of my own machines. Don't read my bullshit -- read these instead:

DagZine: The product of Gary Norris who I'll forgive for assigning a Horatio Alger Jr. book and recommend heartily. His take on the Ward Churchill "crisis" versus the failure of University of Colorado administration to do anything about its student date rape association football team is worth the time spent to read it. He definitely explores a few avenues that hadn't occurred to me and this kind of investment of meditation on a Blogger blog is shocking in the best possible sense.

Festivity Carnival is another great one that I enjoy forgetting about for a couple of weeks at a time because there are so many great little slices of life woven into the entry that it's more satisfying to read in a great big dose than in daily chunks. Sometimes the tone of Bad Penny's writing makes me think a little of Studs Terkel. That's probably a terrible comparison but I do enjoy everything about that site excepting that Geoshitty color scheme. We old folks can't read that shit Penny.

I mention Bob every single time I do one of these entries. Right now this is the most recent entry and I'm reminded again why I wish he had a little more time to do those sort of brilliant brain dumps. I just looked over that post again and again I'm impressed with the apparent ease and skill that Bob employs when he has time to write.

Yeah, so, I'm bone dead tired and I can't think anymore. Go trick or treat somewhere else for a day or two. I'm going to try to recommend something new once a week or so. Now that I've said this, you'll never see anything like this here again.
