Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Name:
Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!

What would be on my sidebar if I had one

I did not get a chance to surf the Internet this week. Yes, again. The kids are getting more independent, meaning I have to keep closer watch on them (especially Norah). So I can't wander around cyberspace as easily as I used to. Also, I get burned out occasionally and just have to shut the computer off. Therefore, instead of links this week, I am going to show what stuff would be on my sidebar if I had a sidebar. These are the blogs I try to visit at least twice or thrice a week. Sometimes I can, and sometimes, like this week, I can't. And we're off!

2 Guys Buying Comics - Just what it says it is. Lots of interesting reviews and insight.
2 Blowhards - Lots of interesting posts about popular culture and art. Recently they linked to some fascinating stuff about porn.
Merlin's Lists of Five Things - Another thing that is just what it says it is. The lists are funny.
a little east of reality - chosha stops by here occasionally, and her blog has lots of interesting stuff about her life.
The Absorbascon - Scipio has far more knowledge about comics from DC than is probably healthy, but he's very funny. And he has haiku! And his obsession with Vibe is cool.
Accept No Substitutes - Stacy Rosembaum's political blog. It's been a while since she posted.
Ace of Spades - Very right-wing blog. Lots of kookiness, but he links to a lot of interesting stuff. If you like that sort of thing, he's for you. If you're a lefty, it's fun to read the nuttiness!
Acephalous - Blog by a English graduate student at UC-Irvine. Usually interesting and often funny.
Afe Blog - Ramblings from a kooky Aussie. Aren't all Aussies kooky?
Ahistoricality - A left-wing blog, always with interesting links to lots of other places.
Aiee! Run From Kelvin's Brainsplurge! - Kelvin talks (mostly) about comic books.
The Amazing Adventures and Untold Stories of Astrid - Astrid's blog is just a crapload of fun. She always refers to herself in the third person, and her adventures are goofy and glorious.
AndrewDabb.com - Andrew Dabb is the writer of the comic book Atomika. You're all buying that, right? You should be.
Andrew Sullivan's Daily Dish - Sullivan is a gay Catholic conservative, which makes his blog interesting. Some of you may have seen him on The Colbert Report a few weeks ago. Other conservatives hate him because a) he's gay; and b) he doesn't necessarily like Bush (who, let's face it, isn't conservative). Conservatives can say they don't mind gay people, but the vitriol they dump on Sullivan is amazing. I don't always agree with him, but he's not crazy like Ace of Spades is.
Andy Diggle - Diggle is a comic book writer. A pretty good one, too, although I don't love him as much as a lot of people do.
Andy Martello's Tales From Andy Land! - An always fun blog. Every Tuesday we get the Top Ten list, and the rest of the week is humorous too. Andy can be a bit crude, so be warned!
Anonymous Lawyer - It may be all made up, but it's interesting reading about the strange things that go on in a law office.
Blogenspiel - a blog by, as she calls herself, Another Damned Medievalist. Stuff about medieval history and the fine folk who teach it.
The Anti-Corporate Patriot - With a name like that, you know it's a left-leaning blog. Very fascinating scientific stuff.
AP's Blog - Allison posts a lot of pictures on her blog, including ones of random people about whom commenters can make up biographies!
Baldilocks - a black female conservative, so another interesting read. I don't agree with her very often at all, but she's still interesting.
Balloon Juice - John Cole is the kind of conservative I like. He doesn't toe the party line, he has reasonable opinions, I agree with him occasionally, and when I don't, I don't feel like he's crazy. Can't we all get along?
The BEAST Blog - Left-wing news from Buffalo.
The Beat - Heidi McDonald gives us all the comics news you can handle!
Beaucoup Kevin - Kevin gives us a lot of insight into comic books, and he's often angry. So much the better!
Bitter Cinema - Lots of stuff about movies, both old and new.
Blargh Blog - A rarely updated left-wing blog, but when he does post, it's usually interesting.
Blog for Arizona - Good liberal news from my state.
A Blog Found on a Garbage Heap - Another infrequently updated blog, this one about comic books. Another one that's usually worth the wait.
Blog from Bolivia - Politics from South America!
The Blog of Doom - Dr. Doom's blog. One of the few by comic book characters I visit.
Blog THIS, Pal! - Gordon is another frequent visitor here, and his blog is always chock full of good stuff. Occasional comics ramblings, good choices for music, the random link dump - all the stuff that blogs are good for!
Bloggity-Blog-Blog-Blog - Laura is an Aquaman fanatic, so if you're into him, check her out. She also finds a lot of good links and posts very often, so she's fun to check out frequently.
Bloggy Blog Blog Blog - the blogger's "name" is Pedestrian Rage, and he's at his best when he's angry.
Brian Hogg - Lots of interesting thoughts about a variety of topics. He also posts infrequently.
The Bricktosser - Another fun comic book blog.
Brill Building - Ian is a very good commentator on what's going on in comics. Fascinating stuff, if you're into them (and really, you should be).
The Brown Wedge - Fun pop culture rants.
Cakes and Money 2.0 - He's back. David last posted in May, but here he is again.
Capitol Hill Blue Rant - Very angry liberal blogger. Verging on crazy. He's what conservatives point to when they want to say liberals are nuts.
Carolyn Castiglia - Undiscovered Superstar - She's a comic and a mother, and she's pretty funny.
Catallarchy - Nice, solid libertarian blog. Some things I agree with, some I don't.
Catholics for Rick Santorum - Rarely updated, but I like checking it out to see how crazy Santorum is these days.
Center of Gravitas - The GayProf talks politics, superheroes, and other gay stuff.
The Cerebral Outpost - Various thoughts about life and such.
Chipped Ham Productions - Evan talks comic books and what he likes.
Chocolate Makes it Better - A blog by an Aussie dad. I'm always interested in reading blogs by fathers of young kids. I wonder why ...
Chris Allen Online - Chris is a comics "insider," so he often has interesting stuff ... when he updates.
LeftyBrown's Corner - Chris used to post a lot, and he has a lot of interesting stuff about comics and popular culture, plus the occasional political rant. He's been sick recently, but it looks like he's back. Good to see you, Chris!
Chris's Invincible Super-Blog - "Your Daily Shot of Face-Rocking Awesomeness." If you read comics, you need to read this blog. It's hilarious. I have linked to it many times, so you might as well just add it to your favorites and check it out daily.
The Chronicles of Rhodester - Interesting blog by a guy in the entertainment industry.
Church of Klugman - All Hail Quincy!
Clandestine Critic - Popular culture musings from David Norman, who used to come by here. Come back, David!
Clew's Blues - A nice personal blog.
CLEWS The Historic True Crime Blog - I don't check this too often, but it's a fascinating read when I do.
Clublife - A bouncer at a New York city nightclub shares his rantings about the customers. He has a book deal, too. I hate bloggers who get book deals.
Collected Editions - comic reviews from a guy who "waits for the trade" - you have to be a comic geek to know what that means.
The Columnist Manifesto - "Oscar Madison" rants about life. He's pretty funny.
The Comic Asylum - James Meeley's comic book blog. He often has interesting thoughts about the pamphlets we all love.
Comic Book Commentary - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez's blog. He's sort of my boss, so I should say nice things about him, but that's not why I like his blog. He knows a lot about what's going on in the comic book world, so that's why. And you never know when Larry Young will stop by and they'll have a verbal sparring!
Comic Book Wife - Kirk Jarvinen's wife's blog. She hasn't updated since the first of the year, though.
The Comic Queen - There should be more women blogging about comics. This is one such site.
R!OT Comics + Culture - Jason's blog about his relatively new comic book store. I visited the store in October when I was in Pennsylvania, and I wish him luck. This is an interesting blog because it's a chronicle of running a business in a rather moribund industry.
The Comic Treadmill - Another comic book blog. Currently in the midst of a very in-depth history of Aquaman. What is it about that guy?
Comics Ate My Brain - Tom Bondurant's comic book blog, with many, many reviews.
The Comics Curmudgeon - Very funny blog. Josh reads the comics section of the newspaper and tells you what he thinks. He's very good at pointing out the stupidity in the comics.
Comics Fairplay - Heidi Meeley's blog. She's the wife of James Meeley (see above) and another good example of women blogging about comics.
Comics Waiting Room - Marc Mason's comic book blog. More reviews of stuff you may not have seen.
Comics Worth Reading - Johanna's blog. She mainly does manga, which I've never been into, so I don't read this as much as I used to, when she was angrier. Still, another female perspective on comics is nice.
Confessions of a Community College Dean - Just what it says it is. Very interesting take on the politics of community colleges.
Cosmic Variance - Science blog with a whiff of left-wing politics. Mainly by taking Bush to task for dismissing science for his standard excuse of "God did it."

Dancing the Polka with Miss El Cajon - Chris Cope's blog is chock full of links that take you many wondrous places on the web. Plus, he has good names for bands.

Dave Barry's Blog - Dave links like mad to all the craziness in the world!
Dave Ex Machina - Fun, interesting blog by Dave Lartigue. He digs Lego.
Dave's Long Box - Dave's blog is a must-read for anyone who likes comics, and he occasionally writes about other stuff as well (this week it was movies). His keen wit leads to the evisceration of all the crap in comic books throughout the ages, and we reap the benefits!
DC Conspiracy - A group of comics creators in the Washington, DC area talk about, well, creating comics.
Democracy Arsenal - A group blog about various political stories. A bit left-leaning, but not obnoxiously so.

Dilbert.Blog - Scott Adams' blog. Not as funny as you might think. Still a good read, just not as funny as you might think.
The Disgruntled Chemist - Another scientist who is mad at Bush. I like his blog a lot - he always has something thoughtful (even when he's disgruntled, which is often).
Doesn't Have to be Relevant - Joshua Hale Fialkov's blog. Who? He's a comic book writer. He writes Elk's Run, a very good comic that no one is buying.
Donklephant - A group blog that strides the center of the political spectrum (hence the name). Lots of good stuff here that makes you think.
Double Articulation - Jim Roeg is perhaps the most erudite writer on comics I've ever seen. Fascinating stuff, when he actually posts, which isn't often. But when he does, look out! - it may take you a while to read.
Dreaded Purple Master - I found this recently, and it was not updated very often, so I can't really tell you what it's about. Looks neat, though.
Drink at Work - Tough to describe, but very funny. Just trust me.
Echidne of the Snakes - Left-wing feminist blog. Naturally, in today's political climate, she's often angry.
Eddie-torial Comments - Random ramblings about Eddie's life. He also needs to post more often.

Factum - Face the Fact - Goofy pictures from around the world!
Fall of the State - Caliban is a good anarchist with always something interesting to say.

Foma - Wacky pop culture blog.
The Fortress of Soliloquy - Tom Foss insulted me recently on my comic book blog, but that's okay - he still writes a good blog.

I don't know when the links are coming back. I doubt if I'm going to have too much time to do them, because they take a long time. I'm going to try this week to do some surfing, because I do enjoy it, but we'll see. I'm sorry my kids and wife are more important than the Internet! I know, where are my values????

First, thanks for the referral - I try to read your blog as often as I can (or, "when I have way too much free time"), and I really dig it.

Also, why not try using Bloglines as a blog organizer? (No, I don't get paid to promote it - honest). I think you can even use it to generate a blogroll - just enter all your sites, snip some code, put it in your blog, and done!

(Plus, it'll give you more time for the wife and kids).

As Homer S. would say, "It's funny 'cause it's true." I'm just doing my part for racial harmony in America!

I just spent the last few minutes frantically looking for where I insulted you, finally coming across the All-Star Superman post.

I apologize for that; I came across as way too snarky there, and I really didn't mean any insult.

Thanks for the link; it's always awesome to see bloggers I love reading expressing an interest in my stuff.

Way to make me feel all ashamed and sheepish-like, Mr. Burgas. Sorry :).

Tom - apology accepted, even though I didn't really care all that much. I know comments can come across sometimes as a lot meaner than the intent, and I knew what you were trying to say anyway, so that's how I took it. I don't have a problem with disagreement - I'm quite easygoing. Good to hear from you.

Thanks for the shoutout!

I too know the struggles betwixt blogs and family...yeah, family wins it by a landslide. :-)

Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the shoutout. As for being your boss, does that mean I get to move Moon Knight up the list for Comics You Should Own? ;-)

PS: No more sparring with he-who-shall-remain-unnamed for me. That last go-round tipped the scales, especially the backchannel emails, and I decided to cut the cord. Trying to limit the negativity I add to the blogiverse, you know?

I'm honored to be in such interesting company. It's gonna take me a week to work through your list, because there's a couple of blogs I don't read there with really intriguing descriptions. For a guy with no time to blog, that was a lot of work: thanks!

I am indeed smarter than you, although it's a shame it took you so long to figure that out.

And yeah, you need a links sidebar! That's it, I'm taking you off! OFF!!

Sorry, Guy - if we don't have alphabetical order, then we have CHAOS! And nobody wants that.

I wanted to do a little bit more description, Ahistoricality, but you're right - this took a while, so I kept that part to a minimum. I'm always happy to contribute to more slacking, so you're welcome!

Greg:

Thanks from both myself and my wife on the linkage. It's much appreciated.

I have to admit I don't read your place as regularly as i probably should. So many blogs, so little time, you know.

Still, I'll have to try to work out a way to make more time to do so. Guess I'll have to get to work on that "time machine" of mine again. ;)

"Wacky pop culture blog."
I like it. And I've always thought my blog was too random to characterize. That is a lot of links though. No way I check them all out and still hold a job.
