I am still locked out of the WordPress Comments Room so here are some thoughts on the blogs I have looked at today.
Aphra Benn has commented on the happiness and creativity which is the Battle of Helms Deep and the negative response it had drawn from, luckily, a small group of killjoys. Unlike Aphra, I feel these people are juvenile males who see the internet as a place where they can “Naysay” anything that looks to have the approval of the world as a whole. They will grow out of it. Either that or they will grow up to be George Bush’s!
Nils of NDNL has given me a link to a science ezine which looks good.
raincoaster has, amongst her po pooie ( I really must check the spelling there) today has the winner of this year’s best news photograph. It is a truly great snapshot and well worth looking at.
The Food Pornographer has photos (drool) and recipe for tiramisu. Oh, the agony of being stuck in the desert with no dessert!
The Satirical Muslim comments on the coming of the Caliph
Afterverse went a little to modern for me today. Yet I can see what he was trying to do.
“from hero to tyrant in the blink of an I
…gold dust in a spindoctors eye”
Healing Magic Hands has some wonderful curved icicles. However, I am glad she is there and I am here. That much cold sounds nasty for unnecessarily ancient bones and joints.
Litlove has found another “Literary Critic” (I use capitals to show that he is not just a “Guardian Book Critic” but a LITERARY Critic). Mr Taylor does show many of the characteristics of a critic. He criticises. He denigrates. He pontificates. I would do two things, Litlove. Firstly, I would remember that critics are normally writers who cannot write, and secondly, I would take the book back and ask for a refund! (Grrr – this is where I really miss being able to comment on your blog.)
David has again delighted with his 299 word novel “Daddy Loves Darfur”. So much lies between, not his lines, but his words. Each. Individual. Word!
Everyday Objects has posted some of her new images. My jaw drops every time I see her work. It is so “WOW”-making.
