Weekly preview, with Music

Kris Kristofferson at Austin City Limits in 2009:


  • We’ll have posts from Diana (True Blood), Jeremy (Batman), and CompGeekDavid (Music) here and the usual features at Just Gene’O.
  • We’re a go for a Feminist Friday discussion at Part Time Monster this week; we’re still working on the topic.
  • I’m not sure about the Tolkien post for this week or the Follow Friday on the blog yet. I’ll explain briefly why I am not sure below.

I am a Very Inspiring Blogger, apparently :-)

Nerd in the Brain nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award yesterday, and I could not be happier about the nomination. It came at a perfect time. Chaos Girl nominated Nerd in the Brain. You should check out Chaos Girl, too!

The great thing about this award is that there are only two rules for it:

1) The nominee shall display the Very Inspiring Blogger Award logo on her/his blog, and link to the blog they got nominated from.

2) The nominee shall nominate fifteen (15) bloggers she/he admires, by linking to their blogs and informing them about it.

So I already linked to the person who nominated me. Here’s the logo displayed on my blog:


Before I get to the nominations, let me just attach the standard disclaimer. Accepting this award or even acknowledging it is completely optional. At worst, nominees, this is me paying you a compliment. And given the title of this award, you can be sure that you have actually inspired me, in one way or another. Which is good. I hope to return the favor and inspire you all at least once before I am done. The links go to about pages or awards pages. The notifications are my way of informing you. Along with the Twitter shoutouts I’m sending you this morning, which will not mention this award at all, hehe.
