Time to spread the love – in my own way

June 1, 2010


The Groovy Agent over at Diversions of the Groovy Kind has been kind enough to nominate me for a Kreativ Blogger Award.  I’m pretty new at this blogging business, so I’m very flattered.  I’m not nuts about the chain-letter/comes-with-duties aspect of this “award,” but the fact that another blogger, especially one who runs a blog that I enjoy immensely, thinks highly enough of my ramblings to highlight them is extremely gratifying.  A big thanks for that.

Since I’m still a relative neophyte with this stuff, there aren’t all that many blogs that I follow closely that haven’t already had the Kreativ Blogger imprimatur.  So I’m just going to list some folks whose stuff I enjoy, and that I think everyone should check out — though everyobody over in my links section deserves a visit.

In no particular order, and with no strings attached (you’ll find the links on the right):

Silver Age Comics – A wonderfully informative blog that makes me wallow in my comics ignorance.

Silver Age Gold – A lot of smart, entertaining posts about, you guessed it, Silver Age comics.

Bob Mitchell in the 21st Century – This blog gets my appreciation because of its Funny Panel Friday feature.  Guess what  — the panels he puts up are actually funny.  I always get a laugh.

Sequential Crush – I know two things about romance comics — Jack and Squat.  This blog makes a start at remedying that.

Gorilla Daze – Nice posts on famous and not-so-famous titles and characters.

The Random Longbox – I like the “random” gimmick.  For some reason it reminds me of the old The George Michael Sports Machine TV show.

E.G. Comics – Not a blog, but my favorite local comics haunt.  If you’re ever in the D.C. area, please pay Ed a visit.  He has a fantastic shop in the Virginia suburbs that has the best mix of new and old comics in the region.

Part of the “award” is a requirement that I list seven things about me that people might like to know.  I’m down with that.

1) In 2003 I graduated from law school, and a couple weeks after my graduation I shaved my head.  I haven’t been follicled since.

2) My favorite movie is Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and I have a feeling that it’ll keep that distinction until the day I die.

3) If you asked me what I think the best book ever written is, I’d tell you William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury.  If you asked me what my personal favorite is, I’d tell you W. Somerset Maugham’s Of Human Bondage.

4) My paternal grandmother and I shared the same birthday 67 years apart.  When I was a kid that made birthdays awfully damn fun.

5) I don’t watch a ton of TV, but I have a weakness for Maury.  DNA tests and lie detectors are wonderful things.  As is baby mama drama.

6) I have a terrible run-out-of-the-room-screaming fear of spiders, yet my favorite comic to buy is The Amazing Spider-Man.  I think that qualifies as irony.

7) Who do I like more, Superman or Batman?  Superman.

I know I’ve changed things up a little with my duties as Miss Amer-, wait, I mean as a Kreativ Blogger, but hopefully I won’t be cursed with 20 years of bad luck or some other karmic disaster.  Excelsior!

      No problem — unlike “Marc — on the Man’s Side” I can appreaciate the feminine perspective.

    Thanks for the extra shout-out! It’s always fun to hear that a fellow blogger you enjoy reading on a regular basis enjoys your own comic based ramblings.

      You’re quite welcome — “random” ramblings are always appreciated.
