Good list. I feel derelict. Hosting next Friday, too?

Todd Mason said...

Rather more promptly, yes. My inability to stay awake is concerning.

Mathew Paust said...

More coffee.

Todd Mason said...

Hi cocoa, low sugar dark chocolate helps.

There's always deadline fear, and the adrenalin it pumps. More effective for me than anything else. I should have something for you by end of day tomorrow. Working on Robert Pirsig and the sound of a one-lung motorcycle engine coughing.

Thanks for the shout out! SO much good reading on your list. Lots of sites I missed in my blog reading this month.

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Ruth...and I hope you do look in on the books end here, too...

Looking forward to it, Matt...though Thursday is Monthly Underappreciated Music...I always tie Pirsig in with the likes of Richard Brautigan..if you meet the Buddha on a rice-burner mini-bike, one-stroke him...
