Oui, J'aime blog!
In the beginning
There was darkness on the face of the deep
The links that keep it shinin'

IRONY ALERT: On occasion, when you go to Sullivan's site, "Ham Ass terrorist" Michael Moore's book pops up on the Amazon ad!
Neale Talbot's little "war-profiteering" remark and similar sentiments by this guy gets well-known "unreflective knee-jerk insular America-firster gun-pointing babe-clenching irony-deprived ahistorical cretin" James Lileks going! Also, another Lara Croft photo!
NO JOLIE IN DENBESTVILLE: Steven Den Beste takes a break from talking about ones and zeros to give us a little Lara Croft cheesecake! Woohoo! Death to Hamas!Wednesday, April 10, 2002
TYPING WITH SULLIVAN: WaPo readers lobbed questions at Andrew Sullivan yesterday. Props to Orwell and Hitch! Hisses to Krugman and Moore! Quotes from Benedick! Sadly, zero percent Spotted Dick or tuna content!Tuesday, April 09, 2002
DOGS AND CATS, LIVING TOGETHER: L.A. vampire-blogger Ken Layne posts twice before noon!
INSTAPUNDIT, ER, 'KING BLOGLORD' GETS A STALKER! Any of you slaughterbloggers out there wanna teach Warblogger Watch how to use blockquote? Except for the sputtering, I can hardly tell when he's quoting himself or a "neo-con momma's boy!"Monday, April 08, 2002
TALK ABOUT GOOGLEWHACKING: OK, I'm sure this is old hat to Nataljia and the Samizdata folks, but I just got a Google hit for "Croatian porn stars." I bet he was disappointed. (By this site, not by Nataljia. If he found Nataljia, he's probably very happy.)
WARBLOGGING FOR FUN AND PROFIT: Dammit, Glenn, where's my Brink's truck? And I don't mean Virginia Postrel in a Dodge Ram hawking Brink Lindsey's "Against the Dead Hand."
YES WE'RE GOING TO A PARTY PARTY! It's Media Minded's birthday! What do you get the unidentified-copy-editor-for-a-major-daily-with-an-Amazing-Techie-Girlfriend who has everything?
WHEREFORE ART THOU, SULLIVAN? He's defending the monarchy and waxing Olde English about his "Much Ado About Nothing" role and taking Scandahoovian enviro-guru and "veggie teetotaler" Bjorn Lomborg out on the D.C. town like the warblogging profiteer he is! And if you've still got those burning questions about Spotted Dick and haven't seen your specialist yet, go here tomorrow at 1 p.m. Eastern for a live chat!
SICKBAY: Instantdude says sickness abound in his house today and he didn't get much sleep. That explains the sixteen posts!
Tony! Toni! Toné! Today Tony Pierce corrects a few of my misapprehensions (watch that first step! It's a, er, boobie!). And makes me cry! Also included, many pictures of Layne's wedding! And don't skip "The Best of Tony Pierce." Not to be missed, mi amigos!Sunday, April 07, 2002
REYNOLDS WOBBLY WATCH: OK, we haven't had an update on Salon's sexless sex column since March 12 for chrissakes! He may be playing a deeper game, but I'm skeptical.
