Welcome Wagon


I want to thank everybody that posted suggestions when I asked for Blogroll Nominations last week. There are a lot of great blogs out there and I wish I had time and space to keep up with everybody, but here are the ones I've decided to add to my blogroll.

The Architectural Dance Society. That 2fs isn’t on my blogroll already is the the single biggest oversight I’ve ever made. He goes by Gadge Cubic on the Comics Curmudgeon where he preens moles, snarks on comics, and wrestles boats. On his own blog, he writes a lot about music and his tastes are way more hip than I could ever hope to be.

Dependable Renegade. This blog is new to me. It seems to specialize in silly captions for pictures of politicians with a side order of sarcasm. Stuff I wish I was brave enough to do.

Ironic Sans. The post where he took a picture of every billboard in Times Square and posted them all on Flickr is just brilliant. For a Baltimoron, I spend a lot of time in NYC and I recognize a lot of these picture. I can be a virtual New Yorker through him.

Psycho Toddler. This blogger is a doctor who is also a musician and a Battlestar Galactica fan (He needs to check out my BSG-ST:VOY comparison). If he weren’t already married and I wasn’t a dude, I’d have to quit my job and go stalk him. Also, the eponymous toddler is pretty adorable.

Mitch McDad’s World. Another daddy-blogger, but one with the warped perspective I admire. Recent topics have included kidney stones and vibrators. Fun stuff.

Grateful Dating. Jamy was the only person to explicitly ask to be added. She is in a way different place in her life than I am, but it's good to live vicariously once in a while.

None of this is meant to take anything away from my current fan base. I love all of you and hope you keep coming around and stroking my ego. Or taking me down a notch. Your call.

Harmonica man the other day suggested I post the songs from my mix CDs so that everybody can benefit from my work. I was wondering how to do this in the way least likely to incur the wrath of the RIAA. It seems 2fs uses a site called eSnips that might fit the bill. As a test, I've uploaded "Anchorage" by Michelle Shocked as a test. Depending on how industrious I feel, I might upload more tracks for future posts.

I feel kind of pushy now, but thanks for including me. It's an honor.

The song is great, too.

Begered said...

Yes, there are so many blogs and so little time to keep up with all of them! Pretty cool idea to ask for nominations.

Harmonica Man said...

Thanks for humoring me. I really like this song!

Sarch said...

I agree with begered...what a great idea for blog roll nominations. I wish I had that kind of creativity!

I think you might have gotten skipped at Michelles meet and greet so I stopped by to say hi!

Blond Girl said...

I wish I was on your blogroll - if only because my bestest friend, geekwif, is. Of course, that would mean I have to blog roll you and (drum roll for the blond moment here) ... I haven't figured out how to use it. I need a guided tour!

Here from Catherine's place down under. :-)

Thanks for the kind words! (My CAPCHA thingy is...RNINZA! I think that's also the name of a Japanese superhero hip-hop guy...)

Hi. Some of those sound like cool blogs so I might have to give them a visit. I ususally find new blogs by visiting random ones on other people's blogrolls or sometimes, someone finds me!

Of course, Michele's is a good venue too adn she sent me to say hi today.

Mitey Mite said...

A simple "hi" turned into a 20 minute stroll through your new blogroll -- actually, I didn't get past the first one I looked at -- and that was 15 minutes after I read through your old posts. Some excellent stuff here!

Hi from Michele - I checked out Psycho Toddler - b ut I already have a couple of hundred blogs bookmarked and was thinking I need to cut down. Have a nice weekend.

Yes - I also enjoy Michelle Shocked tracks and recently saw her perform in New York at the John Lennon Benefit. A short set, but including 5am in Amsterdam.
