An avalanche of new blogs
Wow, there's like, soooo many blogs to add. Here we go.
Bend to Squares is the quite slick-looking blog of Vic, a copywriter and Australian in exile. It's basically a resource for cute art and crafty things, as well as fashion, photos and other covetable odds and ends... like the unsettling work of Marcel Dzama, which is the subject of her latest post.
StraightTalkingStreetTalkingSweet is a blog of pub poetry written by Danny Wise, aka Andy Sewina. It's not poetry about pubs, at least not mostly. "I call it Pub Poetry 'cos most of it was written after a few beers down the local watering hole." he also has a personal blog at Proper Joe's. And his partner Nicola has a blog called Raw Meat
ysr23 is subtitled "photos and that." It's the work of Thomas Mceldowney, who posts a photo a day. He's responsible for the image above - I'm sure Stretford has never looked so hauntingly beautiful.
Deltaflow is the personal blog of Julian Malik Seidenberg, a Manc student who's had a very interesting life. Really.
Elgey is currently traveling in Prague, where he is presumably drinking absinthe - if you scroll down a bit there are detailed instructions on how to correctly prepare "the green fairy." Never had absinthe myself, but always wanted to try it.
Mamucium is a personal blog - the name comes from the old Roman name for manchester, and there's quite a bit about the city's ancient history in the first post.
There's also another political blog: Politaholic, which has lately focused on close readings of and responses to political coverage in the newspapers.
Postcards from the Manchester Student Scene; That one's self-explanatory, I think. Same goes for Reel Review.
Thanks to the folks who emailed about new bloggage - Nick, Chris, Andy and the rest.
