Best of the Week: 10/25 - 10/29

I'm out of the office all weekend, but I set up this automated post to show any weekend visitors the best of what went on this week.

Kenna - New Sacred Cow (2003)
In just three days, this review became the most viewed page on the site, and many readers found a new favorite artist!  

Morgan from Kevlar - Father 
 


This soulful little ditty, written and performed by Morgan from Kevlar on the steps of his apartment on the last day of his lease, managed to impress readers even though it was recorded on a cellphone.  A must-watch.

Links of the Week

Rorshach Redemption  - Run by the blogger of the same name, a favorite commenter on this blog.  I've been raving about this thing to my friends in meatspace, the concept is great - Rorshach posts inkblots, while shedding light on the science and history behind them, asking all of us as readers what we see - many have even sent in MS Paint or higher-grade renditions of their visions!  Throw in a podcast that's now sitting at 8 episodes, and you've got an all-rounder of a blog that engages on all levels.  It's a blast to read, and one of my favorites out of all the blogs I follow.

A Vegetarian Mind - My other favorite blog out of all the blogs I follow, run by The Angry Vegetarian, who, as his quality comments on this post show, isn't actually all that angry.  A-Veg is a photographer of my favorite kind - one who isn't afraid to explore the subject with his lens, and capture interesting, unique shots of all types of animals, views, inanimate objects - it's a colorful, crisp whirl of brilliant shots.  And of course, when the shots have a story attached, Veg shows off his ability to spin a yarn in style.

See you all on Monday!

  1. Pretty nice. The video quality leaves something to be desired, obviously, but the song itself is pretty relaxing.
