About a week ago, The Lesley presented me with Thinking Blogger Award. Being the insensitive prick that I am, I didn’t bother posting anything about it, as I should have.

In my defense, I’ve been incredibly busy, but that doesn’t negate the fact that I’m an insensitive prick.

First and foremost, thank you Lesley. (And screw you guys, I thanked Lesley last week, too, when I saw it. Now I’m doing it publicly).

Now the rules:

The rules behind this Thinking Blogger Thing are as follows:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).

This is really going to be tough, as I love all the blogs I read. There are times that all of them make me think, and there are times when they don’t.

So, without further ado, here we go:

1. Walking Atlas — Hands down, the blog I read that makes me think 99% of the time. The blogs listed after this are in no particular order, but Atlas is the one that makes me think most. I wish Brik would update more, but really, who am I to say anything.

2. Sometimes Sisyphus — This one is on (hopefully) temporary hiatus. I love Sue’s blog. It always makes me laugh. Sue and I see some things differently, but she’s a strong enough writer to make me see her point of view, rather than disagree with it off the cuff.

3. Life on the Rim — While he’s been making me gag with his new girlfriend posts, Ace sometimes throws out some Civil War trivia, among other little tidbits. I’m not much into the Civil War history, but Ace never bores me with his posts about it.

4. Hail Saten — Brian Keene’s blog. He used to keep a blog that had writing tips, but that seems to have gone defunct. But Saten is a great read, especially one Keene goes on a rage.

5. Everybody Else is Doing It — The former roomies blog. Since I never call or write, this is how I keep up with her life, now that she’s moved out.

There are definitely some honorable mentions. There is a chickie on myspace who writes a kick ass blog. Timewarp’s blog on myspace is pretty damn good, too. I used to love Lance F’ing Henriksen’s blog, but it’s no longer updated. And a director friend of mine kept a pretty cool blog when he was filming his last movie that was fun to read.

So, as ol’ Gump would say, that’s all I have to say about that.

    congrats! and thanks for the links to the blogs.

    im still confused on how you win the award, though im not very bright.

  • Hey thanks! I always enjoy seeing your take on topics as well. for some reason I have missed checking out Walking Atlas before. It’s really terrific.

  • jkg — thanks! I’m confused, too. I think I have The Lesley confused into thinking I’m smart!

    Snooze — The pleasure is mine, I assure you. 🙂

    Hey thanks. It’s nice to know that someone is actually reading. It’s not that I wouldn’t still write it. Although cathartic, blogging is completely narcissistic, isn’t it? Thanks for enabling me!

  • There have been at least two occasions when I was going to write something, but you had picked up on before I wrote it. So, both times, I read yours before I wrote mine and figured there was no need to write anything, as mine would have been a bunch of hootin’ and hollerin’ anyway. 😆
