the local blogging scene

In local blogging news… It looks as though Brett Schutzman has finally launched his new, improved Maproom Systems site. My favorite bit so far, if you don’t count all the depictions of people having their asses bitten by alligators, has to be his exhaustive obituary of Annmarie Campbell, a young woman from Kentucky who was recently consumed by — guess what — an alligator… Linette just popped her head in to tell me about a local food blog I’d never heard of called Kitchen Chick. As it appears as though the author is 1) a pretty handy cook, and 2) a fellow member of our CSA, I’m hoping that maybe she’ll come up with some cool recipes for our weekly allotment of (sometimes obscure, but always tasty) veggies… Speaking of organic farming, I’ve also heard (by way of my friends at Arbor Update) that there’s now a local farmer blogging. I haven’t spent much time digging through his site yet, but it looks as though he’s interested in a lot of the same things I am… And, lastly, I was wondering if anyone out there knew what happened to our friend East Cross. His site seems to be gone and I’m wondering if perhaps it has something to do with the fact that he’s running for City Council. Could it be that maybe people were starting to use what he’d written in the past against him?

update>: Oh, I almost forgot… Kevin Dole broke into a boarded-up crack house and stole a Bon Jovi poster, Brett helped bring a narc to justice, and Dave went to Hell.

    Looks to me like my neighbor to the east shifted his entire site to

    If he hasn’t posted in a while, my guess it’s because he’s been too busy helping the understaffed ypsi fire department battle blazes round the block.

    Not to be confused with the reoccuring local headline, “Concerned citizens help start restaurant fire.”

    Please note that, despite Mark’s suggestion to the contrary, our website has not been officially launched, nor have I made any public announcements regarding such. You are all certainly welcome to visit, but unlike some other organizations, we are not in the habit of partially constructing a website and then inviting the world to view its incompleteness.

    Also, Mark has referenced Variations on a Theme by an internal page URL, and not the main index which is the preferred starting point for new visitors, as otherwise the overtly racist and sexist images located therein are shown without their proper historical context.
