RANGER AGAINST WAR: Culling the Blogroll <

Culling the Blogroll

_________________

We are weeding through the blogroll, culling those who haven't posted for some time. We will probably remove the "late great" listing, too. (Minstrel Boy alone -- the other one -- will retain a place of honor there for his substantial essays, which must not be lost.)

We have lost out poet laureate, Mad Celt, an Army veteran who dismantled his site recently. His raw verse will be missed, and we hope you are doing well, Dale.


From the rest our readers we would like to solicit suggestions to infuse new blood into the blogroll. If you have suggestions of sites you enjoy, please let us know.


If you are a posting artist, poet or
littérateur, please let us know about you.

Thanks for your input.

Hi Jim and Lisa,
Here's a couple of my recent finds. The first is a gal that can explain, simply, how to put a link in a comment and how to spice up your blog.

Blog U

The second is a fellow that writes beautifully on the subject of guns and gun safety.

There's a wealth of blogs out there, people writing about everything you could ever think of. When I find a site I like, I always check out the blogroll.

G.D.,

I just am going to stop being awed and accept the confluences. The Dollyrots just came to my notice yesterday. Swear. To. God.

Since you are such a new music maven, would YOU be interested in contributing a column an an irregular basis? We could trade our poet laureate for a pop culture maven ... ?


U.C.,

Thank you for your helpful suggestions.

thanks for the offer Lisa. unfortunately i am far to unreliable, ethereal, self-absorbed and narcissistic to make a commitment to anything. it is awfully nice of you to ask. i only go into my own blog to decorate the cave. govt mule

All I ask from anyone
Is that they ask nothing from me
Stared so long at the future
That I'm blind to reality
Come a time will watch our lives
Slip into the sea
All I ask from anyone
Is that they ask nothing from me

Dreams fly by like a thousand railroad trains
Egos steadfast like mountains in our brains
Those of us who let go will be swallowed
Left here to die

Do not look to the sky
It will not rain for you
Do not look to strangers
They won't help you through
Only chance you got
When you hear those war dogs bark
Is to be one up on your brother
Like a Blind man in the dark

Face to face we will meet again
But never eye to eye
Meanwhile, in your mania
Your four wings touch the sky
Fly too high the wax will melt
And you'll fall down to your knees
All I ask from you my friend
Is that you ask nothing from me

Dreams fly by like a thousand railroad trains
Egos steadfast like mountains in our brains
Those of us who let go will be swallowed
Left here to die

Do not look to the sky
It will not rain for you
Do not look to strangers
They won't help you through
Only chance you got
When you hear those war dogs bark
Is to be one up on your brother
Like a Blind man in the dark

Do not look to the sky
It will not rain for you
Do not look to strangers
They won't help you through
Only chance you got
When you hear those war dogs bark
Is to be one up on your brother
Like a Blind man
Blind man in the dark
Blind man in the dark

Blind Man In the Dark

Badtux,

You're a brilliant musical penguin, and I did see them on your site, but it was another vid I'd come across. I was searching the web for something and serendipitously came across one one of their You Tubes.

Don't ask me how -- way leads unto way. I've been experiencing a lot of repetitions lately. It's kind of eerie, actually ;)
