New blogs on the blogroll

There's a couple new blogs on the blogroll: oocRadio (I apologize for the delay!) and Wetmachine! ¡Viva la blogroll amnesty!!

Since I'm here, I'll mention a few of my friends' and frequent commenters' blogs so they get some Technorati love: The Apostate, Chicken Girl, The Choice is Now, Disgusted Beyond Belief, Geoff Arnold,, Often Right, Rarely Correct, Only in America, Plognark, Thalesian Fools, Thoughts from a Sandwich and A Whore in the Temple of Reason. (If I've left you off the list, it's only because I'm a dumbass. Leave a comment and give me the 20 lashes with a wet noodle I justly deserve.)

Update: 20 lashes to me for missing A Blog from Hell. Ouch!

And of course I cannot fail to mention the heroes of blogtopia (yes, skippy coined the phrase), skippy the bush kangaroo and the incomparable Jon Swift.


  1. Thanks for the shout-out.

    Didn't know you were a friend of Geoff Arnold. You may find this wetmachine entry, about the time Geoff and I went to dinner with Douglas Hofstadter, to amuse:

  2. Much obliged for the linky gold, no apologies necessary, but...just a minor detail, that's oocRadio, acronymically signifying my nom de clavier, OutOfContext and the podcast for which it was created. Not the catchiest of names, but it's all I've got to work with...

  3. Geoff and I never met in person, but we comment on each other's blogs.

  4. Woo! Thanks for the link love. :)

  5. Hey, thanks for the links. I recognize some past (and present?) IIDB denizens there. Cheers!

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.

Note: Only a member of this blog may post a comment.
