Welcome to today’s Salon blog tour of quality. Or somesuch – I’m just covering for Mark, anyway. He’s back tomorrow, so all will be right soon. I promise. I know this is a bit early, but hey – I’m an East Coaster and a morning person. Deal with it. =)
Pardon me if I’m a bit distracted – I remembered today that I had the first five episodes of the new season of 24 sitting on my TiVo, unwatched…so I’m currently catching up. So far, it’s pretty decent, but could do with a lot less of Jack’s daughter. I mean, she’s cute and all – but not particularly interesting. Anyway – on to the tour, in some particular order, with some personal bias…I’m going to be choosing things that interest me, and there may be no other reason than bad puns. I make no apologies.
Over at Pipeline, we’re given two things to think about: a rigorous argument that the Who were a more important and generally better band than the Beatles, and whether the Who is singular or plural. Ok, maybe not, but he does jump back and forth a couple times. Anyway, he’s got some good points.
…how does Mark avoid the tour getting absurdly long? I’m only maybe a third of the way through today’s updates…there’s just too damned much QUALITY, BABY! That’s what we’re all about here at Salon blogs, my friend, QUALITY! All in caps, of course. Yeah, I’m babbling, but I feel a need to inject this with my own personal style, y’know? Right – back to the show. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
Reverse Cowgirl may have said something, but she gets enough hits already. And a TV show. Now Instapundit’s picked her up, to go with Dave Winer. Yikes – two of the highest traffic blogs have linked her recently. Yeah, I’m jealous. I am so unloved. I’m going to go take my happy pills now. =)
The Devil’s Excrement documents the repression of anti-Chavez demonstrations in Venezuela – this blog has long been a consistently good source of information on the complicated and difficult situation in that country.
…and that’s it for me tonight. Mark will be back tomorrow – and good thing. This has taken a good chunk of time – I’m way too lazy to keep it up on a regular basis. Mark, you’re a better man than I.
