Thought-Provoking Weblogs

I was thrilled to find that Ivan at Thrilling Days of Yesteryear tagged me with a blogging meme — and for once it’s a good one (Ivan also had some sweet things to say about scrubbles.net in his post). The basic jist of the meme is to select five “blogs that make you think” and write about each one. I’ve decided to narrow it down to weblogs done by an individual, and those individuals have no obligation to continue the meme. In no particular order:

1. 2719 Hyperion. I’m a theme park nut. Although I’ve never been to Walt Disney World, reading Jeff Pepper’s weblog and viewing his snapshots of the park’s less explored side is the next best thing to being there. Very insightful, too — check his recent post on the nostalgic pull of theme park music.

2. Today’s Inspiration. I’ll say it now — illustrator Leif Peng must possess the busiest scanner in the Western hemisphere! I love learning about unsung commercial artists from the ’50s and ’60s, and Leif is the perfect guide. His knowledge and personality elevates his weblog, so what easily could’ve been a simple “look what I found” thing is actually an invaluable resource.

3. Quiddity. I first came across Quiddity about 6 or 7 years ago and my interest has never waned. What amazes me about her stream of weird and wonderful links is that, where other blogs have wavered in quality over the years (present company included), she’s stayed exactly the same. Meggan is like the Energizer Bunny of bloggers — she keeps going and going!

4. Robot Action Boy. I’m happy to count “william in taiwan” among my online friends. He has an infectious way of sharing his interests in pinhole photography, weird Asian kiddie toys, kitschy ’70s music, and other stuff. And I think the fact that he never uses the “Shift” key on his keyboard adds to his weblog’s quirky charm.

5. Just Ask Christopher. I’m kind of biased on this — but Christopher never fails to post on some interesting topic I’d never known of, mostly in the science/nature arena. On the other hand, he can get wonderfully eclectic. In the past month he’s posted about actress Veronica Cartwright, the Hartford Circus Fire, the mysterious death of What’s My Line? panelist Dorothy Kilgallen, the dearth of local Simpsons/7-11 merchandise, and the Dewey Decimal System. Nice guy, too.
