Some shuffling of the cards in the world of blogs lately, here’s some notables (the good, the new and the dead):
-K-Punk is running tings, boasting vibrant discussions (and comments box) on theory and popism/poptimism
-Koons Really Does Think He’s Michelangelo is Marcello Carlin’s new home, its defining feature being the move towards shorter essays than his past two homes.
-SilverDollarCircle is one of the major grime nexuses (nexii?).
-Hua Hsu, the Wire hip-hop guru, is also great reading (esp. for his dialogues w/ family and club goers)
-Drip Drop Drap seems to be on the ILM-taste tip (maybe he/she posts there?).
-Jess Harvell is back at it again in new digs.
-And, of course, don’t forgot about Stylus writers (Josh (interesting thoughts on Neil Young right now over there), Anthony/Charlie (both not new, but new to our staff) and yrs truly!)
-The always amazing dancehall crit Dave Stelfox (although he seems to be popping his head into the K-Punk comments section)
-Jess’ Technicolor Blog
-Matt Woebot’s, in favor of the minimal Woebotnik.
Check ‘em all, lament the lapsed, but, most importantly, keep up the discourse. Lots of good reading and thinking going on out there if you’re looking for it.
