...to give you my own little "Reading Rainbow." I'm taking some time out tonight to talk about the blogs I read. They're aggregated by the most excellent Google Reader application. I choose the day for this entry because it was seven years ago today that the first posts went up on this blog, then simply "my journal." I was still a college sophomore, 9/11 hadn't happened yet, and I was most concerned with the sports programming lineup on WVBR. It's been a long winding road to get to the tfo that you read today. So here's what else I read, and why I do so:
I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell - the production blog for Tucker Max's movie, based on his book of the same name. A really insightful look into the process of makign an independent movie. Tucker and Nils also explore and excoriate the cutthroat nature of Hollywood.
The Bunny Blog - the tale of an itinerant bisexual artist (and prolific graphic designer).
KungFuMike.net - a devastatingly witty writer and native of Portsmouth, NH, from which I recently departed.
RyanHoliday.net: - one of Tucker's associates, who writes deeply profound items at a level far above his age.
Erin Kella - a chance encounter on the Rudius Media Message Board brought me into contact with this interesting read, from a senior at the University of Mary Washington in Virginia.
Tasty Blog Snack - has it really been nine months since I mentioned iJustine, shortly after her 300 page iPhone bill? She'll live forever - as into the wired world as she is, she'll get a robot body built to have her brain and memory engrams preserved.
IvyGate - the blog that irreverantly covers eight of the nation's most prestigious schools. It led the coverage of the Aleksey Vayner saga in 2006, and it introduced me to the aforementioned RazzyBlog two months ago.
You now have all the tools you need to enhance your mind and take the breadth of your knowledge to another level. I'm glad I could provide this frickin' public service.
