A couple of interesting blog features from a couple of interesting blogs
P’Ashton has Brum Blog, ‘an experiment to see if a weblog devoted to Birmingham is a viable thing.’ I see no reason not when written by one person like this (he has previously discussed the problems inherent in turning it into a group effort), but whichever way up it’ll feature a lot of interesting upcoming events, listings, news and photography. He seems to be shying away from any sort of extensive comment on any of it, which is a shame (Pete generally has very interesting things to say) although I can see why. Nevertheless, I consider this an essential thing to follow for anyone local.
Throughsilver is now writing his Top 50 albums Of 2005, under the very sensible premise that scrambling to do it at the end of any given year doesn’t give sufficient time to reflect. I can sympathise with that, since about ten minutes after my own best bits of 2005 appeared on the web I was already slapping my head and calling myself foolish. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with, anyway, and it should develop into a very interesting read.
