Exciting Internet Nexus of Power
Today, my boss is coming in to do my performance review. Ha! So, I can’t spend all day writing on the intertubes.
What I’m going to do is, I’m going to put some links up to websites that I like. Many of them are the same links that are on the widget over to your right, but actually linking to them in the blog will help all of these other sites gain a certain amount of traction, however slight, in the vast cutthroat ocean of interweb blog attention.
Click on the links. Have fun.
Dark Roasted Blend Hilariously, this is a site filled with more links. Just generally weird and awesome things to see.
Ectoplasmosis! This is a site that is also filled with weird and awesome things. They have a Cthulhu Cthursday, which is what endeared them to me.
Sallymander Speaks! Sallymander hasn’t posted a lot recently, but I wanted to draw your attention to her anyway; I am 100% in favor of literary evaluations of pop culture. Here’s a piece she did about the sexism in Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden novels.
The SF Gospel Here is the website of world-renowned author and leading Philip K. Dick scholar Gabriel McKee, who is, technically, the most successful of my contemporaries. There’s good discussion here, even if Gabe sometimes seems like he’s grinding his axe. And also even though I don’t like C. S. Lewis.
What Will Suffice My position on French Canadians has been, traditionally, that they are dangerous lunatics intent on poisoning America from within, and What Will Suffice does nothing to dispel that belief. It does offer up some neat comments on David Foster Wallace, though.
So, there’s all that. I have no intention now, or ever, of turning Threat Quality into a link cache, but since I have to spend most of today pretending that I’m working, I feel comfortable sending you guys thusways for right now.
