Bloggy Wednesday

    “Blogging may help people feel happier and more satisfied with their friends, according to Melbourne researchers.” ~ Bloggers ‘feel more connected’, Chee Chee Leung, Science Reporter, The Age, March 4, 2008

A few blogs which have caught my eye recently.

1) The Local:

“News, commentary, resources, advice and discussion about Australian blogging, bloggers, the .AU blogosphere, blogebrities, blog networks, blog wars, blog search, blogging law, blog crushes, blog hosts… well generally it will contain everything to do with weblogs.”

2) The Hack & Caz:

Weird shit. The Hack & Caz is dedicated to two bloggers, ‘The Hack’ (Jamie Duncan) and ‘Caz’ (Caroline Hamilton). Apparently, Jamie and Caroline were responsible for a now-defunct blog called ‘The Spin Starts Here’ (originally titled ‘The spin starts here darl’), established in October 2002 and ceasing publication in April 2007. The blog’s authors are rather um, ‘critical’ of Jamie and Clive’s blogging activities, claiming that TSSH was responsible for all kinds of scurrilous and damaging attacks upon other bloggers whom the pair happened to dislike.

3) boudist:

“Boudist is Daniel Boud’s personal website. He lives in Sydney, takes the occasional photo and loves the rock’n’roll music.” Daniel recently took a photo of a rock’n’roll band in Sydney: Juliette Lewis & The Licks. For my money, Juliette Lewis is one of the most disturbing-looking individuals every to grace Hollywood celluloid. Every time I see her, I wince. Why is that? I dunno. Same goes for Chloë Sevigny. *shudder* But anyway, Daniel’s blog is ace, and his photos are grouse.

4) Public Opinion:

Loadsa stuff on Gary Sauer-Thompson’s weblog. Interesting stuff. Or maybe not. He needs an editor. To edit. His words. On his blog.

5) Defamer Australia:

Local version of LA gossip column. Almost as good as — nay, better — than browsing the magazines in the supermarket aisle.

6) Top 100 Australian Blogs Index:

Not a blog, but a blog page. Mostly dull, but popular, apparently.

About @ndy

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2020 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.

    It’s like Mediawatch, but without the anti-Israel bias and with more tawdry gossip.

  3. juancastro says:

    Hah, are you serious about the anti-Israel bias? I think the apartheid state of Israel’s very existence has an anti-Israel bias 🙂

    Sorta like capitalism.

  4. Dr. Cam says:

    Yes, I was being 100% serious.

  5. @ndy says:

    Or perhaps 99.99%.

  6. Dr. Cam says:

    I was being about as serious about it as Karl Marx was about not being a deadbeat dad.
