And NOW, it’s time for another wacky edition of:
FOUND IN MY REFERRER LOG
The World’s Largest Ball of Twine
Those above seem to have found their way into my referrer log by mistake.
Following are some lesser-known sites found in my referrer log which were actually supposed to be there:
This amazing directory called ‘Mr. Murphy’s Neighborhood’ . . . from the producer of Ghost in the Machine.
Norton, who called me the “deadly Dr. Menlo” . . . heh.
The Scobleizer . . . yes, I was scobleized (“most distasteful thing I ever stood still for”–ha ha, love that line, via Wm. Burras, o’course) . . . Ok, just found it . . . he sez: “Dr. Menlo’s MPS” . . . his acronym standing for . . . erm, can’t find what the acronym stands for, but from the following paragraph I’m guessing ‘Micro-Published Something’ . . .
Which reminds me of this comment by drat fink:
. . . someone else was pushing “micro publishing” as an alternate to “weblogs” which apparently has alot of negative baggage attached to it already. i guess it reeks of amateurism. but really, me zines? and why not “idealogs?” its more specific and tidier than micro publishing and it comes complete with a clever pun instead of poor syntax. also “zines” are by nature amateurish and thus the stigma has not been removed. whereas “idealogs” despite sounding like a 1970s toy company has a fresh and bold outlook, one that screams (albeit demurely) “vision.”
See also via drat fink: this Housemartins link, and also Regular Pot Smoking Won’t Kill, Kaiser Researchers Determine.
I used to really dig the Housemartins way back in the late eighties; I was surprised to learn that Fatboy Slim used to be a Housemartin.
Drat Fink is one of those blogs I would steal links from more, but it is always so chockfull I never know where to stop–same with FMH, Jimwich, Abuddhas, RandomWalks, BookNotes, Wood’s Lot, Ghost Rocket and many more!
Happy Belated Anniversary to BookNotes, btw–you know, only in the last 2 months have I discovered BookNotes, Wood’s Lot and CABINET, which makes me wonder how many more great blogs are out there that I haven’t seen yet?
(ps: I am unable to send mail via my WELL account right now, tho I can receive ok–so sorry to those whom I haven’t written back to yet. Hey, didja hear fellow Seattle-ite and Corpse-er Joe Safdie is gonna be @ Bumbershoot this year? Cool!)
