Nominations - Best Culture Blog

Nominate your choice for Best Culture Blog. Culture being somewhat in the eye of the beholder, we're looking a wide cross-section of blogs on popular culture topics.

A couple of notes:

  • You can nominate yourself; don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • In some cases the list of finalists may contain sites not publically nominated.
  • This contest is about fun - find some new blogs to read by following the links.
To nominate a blog leave the name of the blog; the main URL for the blog; and the URL for a RSS/Atom feed (if possible) in the comment section. For example (Note that Wizbang is not eligible for nomination in any category):
Wizbang
http://wizbangblog.com/
http://wizbangblog.com/index.xml


Unless you login via Typekey, your comments may be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment. Typekey authenticated comments will be published immediately. Update (Nov. 25): Nominations are closed. Keep checking The 2006 Weblog Awards homepage for news on finalist, linking, and voting. The voting will commence the first week of December, so keep spreading the word. In the mean time you can also join us in The Weblog Awards forum to discuss the nominees, or do some campaigning.

I nominate Whitney Matheson's "Pop Candy" on the USA Today site. It is always entertaining and inciteful, and some of her discussion threads are engrossing. She never makes you feel guilty for stealing a little time away from work to read it!

I also nominate Pop Candy: http://popcandy.usatoday.com

God of the Machine: www.godofthemachine.com

Pop Candy

I nominate "Stuck in the 80's" from the St. Petersburg times. Steve Spears runs this blog and you can rest assured he is probably sitting at his desk in his "Risky Business" shades listening to Journey's "Separate Ways" right now...

Dear Reid - utterly useless advice from a terrifically unqualified guy.

I'd like to nominate the GUBA Blog. The writer, TJ DeGroat, is hilarious and always hits the nail on the head when it comes to culture, pop and current news.

I nominate Beer and Theology as best culture blog. Beer and Theology is written by former screenwriter-turned-minister Tom Bryant, and deals with religion, politics and popular culture.

http://beerandtheology.townhall.com/Default.aspx

Sample postings for your concideration:

An Open Letter to Mayor John Peyton of Jacksonville, Florida
http://beerandtheology.townhall.com/g/a463c4a3-d31a-48c0-b87b-72eb0d059667

But bringing the Navy would have brought Navy Families back to the neighborhood. The drug dealers and hookers would have left.

Families would raise their children in comparative safety, once again. Little boys would have big back yards to defend from those pesky gun-toting dinosaurs. And once again little white boys, little black boys, little asian boys and little hispanic boys would have ran down to the end of Tampico Rd to play basketball and talk about girls, and build friendships that would affect the kind of men they became.

And Richard and Dolores Bryant would have watched them, with fond memories of their own sons doing the same thing, until the end of their days.


Insufficient Postage: "Letter to a Christian Nation"; the Deutsche Christen Movement and This Election
http://beerandtheology.townhall.com/g/89388687-5e05-4b35-a728-2f52fb135c16

I suppose that to the Dawkins' and Harris' of the world this is an encouraging sign that their assault on religious faith is working. However, what I see when I view this poll, and the articles and books by atheist missionaries, is something far more ominous. I've studied it before. And Santayana warned us about it.

Let me take you back into history a bit.

Any detailed examination of Germany’s fall into National Socialism begins to take on a Dante-esque quality the closer one looks. The sociological “sins” of rabid Nationalism, belief in Social Darwinism, anti-Semitism, distrust in democracy, and desire for authoritarian control of government function like the concentric circles of Hell, spiraling ever downward toward the charismatic figure of Adolph Hitler.

Daddy, Who Is Your Hero?
http://beerandtheology.townhall.com/g/e466fd1b-905e-4d33-8d6c-2eed118090bd

Her answer floored me.

"It means you should stand up for what is right, even if you're standing alone. No matter what."

I have another hero. She's 11 years old.


An Open Letter to Neal Boortz, Part 2
http://beerandtheology.townhall.com/g/4a0ccb61-f959-48f7-98b5-79d26422a3df

All of this - ALL of this - is part of the Gramsciist theory of taking over a culture. Stop teaching the rugrats the skills needed to function successfully in society, such as reading, writing and arithmatics, and start teaching them to not be judgemental and the proper way to put a condom on (since they are going to have sex anyway because they shouldn't follow mom and dad's judgemental attitude towards premarital sex among minors. ''How dare they impose their hypocritical, Christian, outdated morals on me! Oh, my aching self-esteem!'')

Thank you.

Best new / individual / educational / cultural blog...about living on a remote Japanese island while teaching high school English in prep for grad school...and the anthrosociopoliticultural things that run through my mind.

This blog is no longer alive, but it is the father blog of the entry I already made. I studied abroad in Tokyo, Japan for one year, and this is my record of my adventures in the big city and around the rest of Japan. It is media RICH, with hundreds of photos and flash video clips to show what life for me was like.

This is the archive page, because it is no longer being updated. I made it so that prospective Waseda exchange students would have some idea about what to expect. (I was the test subject for this exchange program.)
