Think, thank, thunk


I was flattered yesterday to find that Mark Sullivan named Scuffulans hirsutus as a “thoughtful blog.” I was also a little surprised. I’ve retired from the thinking business, and nowadays I mostly just take pictures, pretty and otherwise. (There may be more music in the future, but thoughts will probably remain rare and fragmentary.)

The rules:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote…

This particular game started back in February, and probably every weblog that has provoked any thoughts anywhere has already been recognized. Nevertheless, I’ll list five deserving sites just in case any have been overlooked.

Aliens in This World — everything from the motu proprio to Megatokyo.

Dyspeptic Mutterings — the art of the fisk, Byzantium, and science fiction, too.

Eve Tushnet — if there ever was an insightful blogger, it’s Eve.

Total Dick-Head — i.e., Philip K. Dick.

Video meliora, proboque; Deteriora sequor — reflections on literature, life and Catholicism.

  1. ! Thank you–I really appreciate it!

    Also, does your blog subhed mean that you’ve read THE PEDANT AND THE SHUFFLY?? Is it any good? I loved Bellairs’s kids’ books to tiny quivering pieces, but have never managed to find THE PEDANT.

    All the best

  2. The Pedant and the Shuffly is an exceedingly silly book and old favorite of mine. The original edition is hard to find, but it was reprinted several years ago by the Mythopoeic Press.
