...it's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there...

The Blog Warehouse

Sunday night seems to be the perfect night to cruise the blogosphere* and check out new stuff. Here's some of the good stuff i found tonight.

. . . Robofrost. i like his take on Dallas radio.

The thing about driving Dallas and its inevitably clogged highway arteries is that the Metroplex's radio stations freakin' rock, and rock hard. When I first scanned through my rental car's 10 FM radio presets, at least five blasted the bejeezus out me with heavy unadulterated loud-ass rock 'n' roll guitar. Classic, alternative, straight-up rock — you name it. Even the Christian rock station, 89.7 Power FM, completely rocked my balls off. It's nowhere near the same in cosmic cowboy Austin, so it was a blast to throw open the moon roof and rattle the asphalt and irritate some tightly wound Dallas yuppies and Range Rover soccer moms.
i don't know if that's true or not; the last time i was in Dallas, i think i was listening to country, or western, i can't remember. i was 13 at the time. But i will say, L.A. rock radio sucks, compared to almost any metropolitan area you want to name. Anyways, Robofrost's blog is pretty fresh, with some cool pictures, too. . . .

. . . Mike at Virginia Patriots explains why Iraqi mosques can be a legitimate target. . . .

. . . Matt Armstrong of Paste Magazine's blog sheds some light on an e-mail spam quirk i blogged about here. . . .

. . . All About Latvia reports that while Latvia debates its continued involvement in Iraq, the Latvian foreign minister denied a visa to an Al-Jazeera reporter without explanation. Good. If you ask me, the fact that he was from Al-Jazeera is reason enough. And in other Baltic news, Estonian blogger Tall Blonde reports an interesting statistic:

15% россиян не знают, кто такой Ленин
Scroll down to April 23 for the translation. It's Glogspot, and there don't seem to be any permalinks. . . .

. . . Snazzykat unilaterally declares this week Blogger Love-in Week!

Today - and the days hereafter (because love shouldn't be limited to one day if you don't come across this until Tuesday!) - is the start of Blogger Love-in Week. Go to each of the blogs you read and tell them why you love them so much. Then come back here and let us know you're a part of the love-in, which is sort of like a sit-in but with a lot more touchy-feely action goin' on.
i'm lagging in my own Ecosystem stats, so i thought maybe i should compose a nice blog comment spam bomb to lay on you all. Something personal like "i love you [man][girlfriend][blogger of unknown gender]! And here's why: [_______]."

Then i thought, bad idea. Spamming blogs with comments might cause someone to accuse me of being a "male college student capitalizing on cute pictures of his girlfriend" in order to raise my popularity on the blogosphere.

i think i'll just stick to trackback begging. (Ooops) . . .

* Some bloggers may shy away from the term "blogosphere," but i think it's quite descriptive.

Trackbacks work every time...

I always suspected that this was a "Frank J." project, if you know what I mean... Funny how the two of you have never been seen together.

I just listen to NPR in the mornings, Rush or Hannity when I can, and occassionally the 80's/90's mix station or country. It is better than LA and, for that matter, anything in Arizona. ...Most of the time though, I enjoy the cd player: thousands of mp3's in the order I want to hear w/ no commercials.

You must ask the OH,

CIronie you whether united blahggers Whinge de Reich carry out such as Instajackass even the extent of it idiocy. On the one hand they are terminated esctatic and in the complete agreement with the judgements, which were made by the investigation of hat clay/tone against the BBC by its journalistic lack of integrity, what the accusations concern, the prime ministers Blair sexed upward intelligence on WMDs Iraq.

Le de Sie, which even d'Instajackass de like de Whinge de Reich carries out extent of it de blahggers d'einig d'ob que l'idiocy, must ask the OH, CIronie you. On the one hand le terminated esctatic d'Urteilen de repaire de WITH d'Abkommen de complete de l'und in de they, matrice investigation of hat clay/tone que le by de la matrice BBC de were made d'Integritaet against its journalistic lack un, était concern d'Anklagen de matrice, matrice prime ministers Blair de by de matrice sexed le upward l'auf WMDs Iraq d'Intelligenz de that.

Instajackass makes this amazing complaint natural.

Is it that this can be true? Naturally not! The problem is that it waits and sees, but continues, in order to write no little than five additional blahgeingaenge to its topic with connections at other newspapers and blahggers from Whinge de Reich, those above took back and unsubstantiated the original to publicise history. In view of the quantity of pure manufacture, which came from the journalists of Whinge de Reich, which dig by old papers of the old regime of Ba ', athist, have one could think that these persons would consider, a little to exercise a journalistic integrity of their clean. But not, it seems good, attacks it its opponents, thus, why not run with history that these persons of a crime are guilty, even if there is no convincing obviousness, in order to support it.

The fact is more amazing the fact that Instajackass is one of the delays congratulatory the individual, which had demanded that their blahgs of shitass makes a difference in the world. Not probably, if it is the kind of management libelous, becomes it to pursue. I can only hope that the investigation of hat clay/tone can save some minutes, in order to condemn the actions morally incorrect blahggers from Whinge de Reich such as Instajackass.
