blog of the week nomination


Well, apparantly Troutfactory Notebook has become a nominee for a “blog of the week” contest sponsored by A Mischief of Magpies. I don’t know much about the Mischief, except that it appears to be based in Scotland and has multiple contributors,at least some of whom appear to have anti-Bush sentiment — which gets the seal of approval from me. There are current posts concerning the ultimate emptiness of Sam Mendes’s new movie Jarhead (a suspicion I formed while watching the trailer), Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s revisionist and anti-Semitic Holocaust “conference,” and the tennis star Andy Murray.

The original nomination for the “blog of the week” contest comes from The Ill Man, a blog based in Glascow, “Scotlandshire,” that includes some nice shots of Glascow and is clearly driven by an enthusiasm for football, even though the site claims to deal in “hard luck stories, random abuse, self centred whining and other slightly less appealing character defects.”

Dear Reader, if you so desire, be sure to set flight for A Mischief of Magpies and cast your vote in this “blog of the week contest.”
