DC Blogs Noted


Top of the list: Freewheelin’ Spirit’s Second Annual Bike Porn contest closes on Midsummer’s Day, June 21.

The whole Wedding-Industrial Complex has gotten out of hand, of course. Needless to say, things like “The Bridesmaid Contract” aren’t helping, (does anyone really need to read these rules to know that behavior is bad?) but fortunately Disaffected Scanner Jockey is here to help us. Just grateful that if you have outgrown friends who would subject you to this. (Meaning: we’re too old for that crap. Even if we’re 19.)

This one is for kids. I have kids. They love fire trucks. So here is Silver Spring Daily Photo’s fire truck picture.

Did you know there were Air Guitar Championships? Apparently there are. And Lonnie Bruner of Talkin’ Shit About a Pretty Sunset has plans. This is disturbing on so many levels. Can someone please explain this?

On Frozen Blog remembers the Can’t Miss Kid (Bobby Carpenter – remember him?) getting drafted by the Capitals and other great summer hockey moments in Washington (amazingly enough, none of them involve winning the Stanley Cup: I’m still waiting).

It seems several not-so-great successes elsewhere have been lured to the D.C. Public Schools by Michelle Rhee to a complete lack of applause by Cuff of Countersignature. Because people who failed elsewhere will of course want to do their level best here?

There are a bunch of PUA* blogs in DC. The author of Caged Bird Sings describes her feelings about the hostile attitude she has encountered there, explaining why she will no longer be commenting. So, PUAs are making at least one woman them feel bad and chasing them away. Seems counterintuitive to me.

*PUA = Pick Up Artist.
