I Link, Therefore I Am

With all the talk about blogrollin', I noticed that I do not give enough link love. So it is time to do a mega link post.

The first link is easy peasy... Shakespeare's Sister has moved to Shakesville. Make sure to change your blogrolls, but while you are there I suggest reading her post On Mentoring And Patronage.
The blog I started on my own now has 17 contributors, countless guest posters in its archives, a blogroll in the hundreds, and thrice-weekly blogwhoring opportunities—and I genuinely try to make time to mentor fledging bloggers. I don’t have a huge platform by any means, but what platform I do, I’m willing to use as much as I can to help out other bloggers.

I have that platform, in large part, because other bloggers have helped me.
Go read the rest, she explains why she is THE AWESOME!

Next I suggest visiting Mike's Neighborhood to read Self-Conscious Vampires And The Porn Stars That Love Them.
Might as well do it. Ladies, gentlemen, film directors well past their prime, and dead horror movie icons-turned shameless junk fiends & stooges in sub-B movies, may I present to you, today's Friday Silly Movie Of My Youth Of the Day . . .

Fright Night
Really go read, you will learn more about Fright Night than anyone should know.

Next I suggest going to visit If I Ran The Zoo, and check out It's About 2012:
Or so I'm tempted to speculate when I read something like this by Steve M, about the U.S. (i.e., Cheney) backing an al Qaeda-linked organization formerly headed by Khalid Sheikh Muhammed that carries out terrorist attacks in Iran.

In other words, we're backing al Qaeda allies against the country that offered to help us against al Qaeda.
Again, really go read!

Next go check out Left In Aboite and read Shoot-Out At The DC Corral:
Mere days before venturing off on yet another brush-clearing adventure in Crawford, President Bush criticized Congressional Democrats for. . .being on vacation:

"The Democrats in Congress … have left Washington for spring recess without finishing the work," said Bush. "They need to come off their vacation, get a bill to my desk, and if it's got strings and mandates and withdrawals and pork, I'll veto it and then we can get down to business of getting this thing done," he said.

Looky here, chimp boy. . .this Congress, unlike the prior one that bowed to and fawned all over you has been working it's collective ass off trying to pass legislation that reflects the will of "we the people" who hired them to do so last November. Apparently you still haven't gotten it through your thick skull that you no longer control all three branches of our government, and that the brakes have been applied to your reckless ride down the unitary executive railroad.
Again go read the rest!

So since I can't think of any good segue, go check out Mixter's Mix and read After the fact, I realized I was supporting the terrorists!
Dammit. I just ate a banana -- that I bought for 55 cents a pound -- and realized, when I got further down onto the peel, that it was a Chiquita banana.

Never mind that they were the only bananas available at the grocery store; I guess I should have forgone my banana craving and gone without.
I am just giving tastes of the posts, remember to go read the rest!

Ok TBogg doesn't need an introduction but he has a very funny Notice of Revocation:
To the citizens of the United States of America, in the light of your failure to elect a competent President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective today.

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories. Except Utah, which she does not fancy. Your new prime minister (The Right Honourable Tony Blair, MP for the 97.85% of you who have until now been unaware that there is a world outside your borders) will appoint a minister for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire will be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

How about just checking out Innisfree, which always has news links. Or Mia Culpa, which has the very funny Monkey Blogging Wednesdays!

I have to run, so I will leave you with links to more of my favorite blogs:
Remember to spread the link love around! :)
