The Best Of The Rest: First Edition
Syp’s got AFK, Tipa’s got her Daily Blogroll (I know she hasn’t done it in a while but bear with here… I’m struggling to establish precedent) and Rock, Paper, Shotgun has the Sunday Papers; I figured it was about time I had my own weekly link love article for when I was feeling too lazy to post anything original. Who knows, maybe you’ll discover a hidden Internet gem in the section that lurks beneath, maybe it will open your mind to new horizons or make your slap your thigh in pure giggling delight. Either way, I get to spend my afternoon basking in the glory of others instead of trying to conjure another of my blogging masterpieces. That’ll come tomorrow.
- Charlie Brooker, Britain’s gift to the blogging world, summarises all of our feelings towards the iPad. He calls it “an iPhone for people who can’t be arsed holding an iPhone up to their face”. That devilish genius, him.
- Melmoth over at Killed in a Smiling Accident questions the garishness of some MMORPG arms and weapons. I would’ve thought blinding or disgusting your opponent with sparkly pink hot-pants and dormant volcanoes for shoulder pads would be a good thing.
- The blogging war between Tipa and Syp heats up. Anyone else think it’s a bit like watching ED-209 take on R2-D2? Tipa’s gonna destroy Syp like Goldman Sachs destroyed my faith in the banking system (political humour, I win).
- Kirai puts the spotlight on Ogori, a cafe in Japan which serves you the food of whatever the previous customer ordered and paid for. Freaking brilliant.
- Blessing of Kings dislikes the hubris of some healers. I think being able to decide who lives and who dies in a group based upon childish whims is part of the appeal. Of course, this may explain why no one ever wants to group with my healer.
- Heartless Gamer celebrates his kid’s first birthday! Big congrats!
- Taza and Husband share the secret to german pancakes. I hate to love this blog.
- Escape Hatch reviews Mass Effect 2. His conclusion? Tis gud. I concur.
- Want to see a photo of some Korean men controlling their iPhone with their sausage? Joystiq is the place to be.
- The World’s Strongest Librarian, Josh Hanagarne, tells us why all the effort of blogging is worth while.
So there you have it, my pick of the Interweb for the past while. Just like a supermarket loyalty card and my Amazon account this information can be used to build up a complex mapping of my personality and brain waves. Promise not to use it to clone me.
