I've recently been updating our own slate of links. Here are a few introductions:
Businger's Truth to Power: Sports Edition. You recall "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" from the South Park movie. This is like that, only instead of being about the famed figure skater, it's dedicated to disgraced basketball coach Bob Knight. Here is a site filled with lies, damn lies and wholly fabricated statistics, accompanied by entertaining digressions and detours.But it helps me segue to the next topic.
Drunk Brunch. She writes mostly about being drunk and/or horny. I once saw Flop give her a McDonald's cheeseburger, which prompted her, on her blog, to describe "the Cole Slaw boys" as "fun for the whole family." Fun indeed.
Cajun Boy in the City. Found via East Village Idiot, who appears to be scouting New York-centric blogs. I'm leery of "[blank] in the city" themes, but this site is well written and doesn't go for the easy shots.
Matt Sears Forever. Another one I found on East Village Idiot. Highly funny, LOL, etc.
Bee-Spot. A self-described "public school ho" in Oklahoma who likes getting drunk, eating food and gorging herself on pop culture. Rumor is that she's a reader of this site and was heartbroken that she's never been linked from here. Awwwwwww ...
Milk Was a Bad Choice. A group blog written by a collection of high-spirited young men who appear to be friends from high school. Like most high-spirited young men, they like sports, movies, music and pretty ladies all greased up. A post on this site inspired me to write a masterpiece.
All Butter is Mine. Another goddamn Oklahoman. Throw Pissed & Petty into the mix and you start to think that Oklahoma in 2007 is to blogging what Seattle in 1990 was to guitars. Apparently, all Oklahomans love to blog. Combined with the preceding site, it's allowed me to create a dairy-themed blog collection. As Spinachdip (deceased) observed in the early days of our blog-courtship, you can never have enough blogs named after food that aren't about food. ABiM also happens to be well-written and amusing.
Copyranter. Much bigger than us. He doesn't need our links or sympathy. True, I hate all advertising, but he works in advertising and seems to hate it with more smarts and passion than I can summon.
Kissing Suzy Kolber. I showed up late to this party. It's a mega-blog about the NFL that receives thousands of links. I hate the NFL: college only. Here is a site so profane, well written and funny that its subject doesn't matter.
Brady Quinn being drafted to the NFL is no big deal for most people, but he happens to have been selected by the Cleveland Browns, which, for co-blogger Flop, is a very, very, very big deal.
In a matter of seconds, a player who we have long mocked and reviled for a team that we hate with a passion -- Flop loved him. Fuckwit hasn't even played yet, and Flop loves him.
At least it showed Flop's true colors. In a matter of weeks he'll be celebrating the president and raving about how cool American Idol is and abstaining from alcohol and doing everything else that is wrong and stupid and unholy.
Hence, my first and only foray into the dumbest internet fad ever:
I commissioned the following poll. Vote or Die, bitch.
