Well, I had a pleasant holiday break; I hope everyone else did as well. Semi-normal blogging (whatever that means) should resume shortly. As a warm up, I’ll toss out a subject that I came face-to-face with in the past month: how best to stay fully connected (with broadband access, if possible) whilst travelling. Background: I […]
Carnival #14 is up, residing for the special holiday edition at Ravenwood’s Universe. And no, I didn’t remember to send in a piece, but nobody is actually surprised by that anymore, are they?
To all those who celebrate it, a very Merry Christmas from the staff here at TTLB (in other words, me). And to those who don’t: have a great day anyway! -N.Z. Bear
Martin thinks Gary Hart might be the Democrats man for 2004. I think he might be onto something, particularly if (like me) you believe the Democrats only chance to to run to the right of Bush on the war. He’d probably be a good choice. On the other hand, I really, really doubt that they […]
Kathy Kinsley is making an appeal for donations, a la Mr. Sullivan (who brought in over $79,000 in his now-infamous Pledge Week). Kathy says she’ll settle for far less, so if you have some spare shekels to share with a non-pro blogger, go forth and donate. (And if you don’t, fear the wrath of MommaBear!)
Yipes. Stephen is not just disagreeing with Bill, he’s Fisking him (in his own words) To be fair, Bill did start it. ‘Twould be cowardly to just link and not comment on this one, I think. I’d say Stephen wins on points; Bill is being a bit too harsh on the Bush administration, in my […]
I grow increasingly convinced that Hitchens is following me. Ah well. Could have a worse stalker, I suppose…
Carnival #13 is up at Heretical Ideas and at Blogcritics! And I forgot to send in an entry again! All is normal with the universe.
Bwahahahahaha. It’s a mean-spirited day here at TTLB, and how better to start than by laughing at Sean Penn. Sean, I’ve told you before, I’ll tell you again: stick to acting. (Directing is allowed, too; nice job on the Gabriel video, by the way). But arms inspection? Diplomacy? Leave it to the grown-ups. Thanks to […]
Now Microsoft is paying Kaus to drive cool cars and write about it? Hey Mickey, have I mentioned that you suck recently? But this little tidbit was a tad too revealing, I must say: “A friend of mine once seduced his girlfriend in high school by telling her that what they were doing wasn’t actual […]
Even more posting about spaceships and guns! I walked into Nemesis with mixed expectations. Over at Ain’t it Cool News, the pudgy demigod that is Harry Knowles had declared it to be an unmitigated disaster. But I had seen other reviews that suggested it might be semi-decent. So, I was hoping to at least get […]
So a brief break from the pointless stupidity of modern politics: let’s talk about tv shows with spaceships and guns! Joss Whedon, of Buffy fame, gave us a new vision with Firefly, and a striking vision it is. Great acting, strong writing, and a vibe to die for. It crept up on me slowly at […]
Folks – This week the Weblog Action Center Cause of the Week is in the holiday spirit. From Scott: “My wife, Kim, and I have been active for the past few years in the Manhattan Post Office’s Operation Santa Claus. This is where you get a letter or two that poor kids have written to […]
Don Nickles, R-Oklahoma, speaking on ABC’s “This Week”, is looking for a new vote for majority leader: “I am concerned that Senator Lott has been weakened to the point that may jeopardize his ability to enact our agenda and speak to all Americans…There are several outstanding senators who are more than capable of effective leadership, […]
Blogosphere power in action: fear our wrath! Okay, so we aimed at Trent, and hit Henry. I guess we
Updated CW for Lott Political DeathWatch (you heard it here first): Since he didn
Meryl, come on: no Narnia? Other than that, a fine list…
One down, one to go! If every blogger in bloggerville clasps their hands and wishes real hard, you think we can ensure Trent heads out the door before the weekend? Or, er, at least save Tinkerbell?
