I like blogs with stories. Stories and good writing. Funny helps. I’ve got a folder right at the top of my NetNewsWire subscription list called Good Stuff, and its got dooce and The Fat Cyclist and and a couple other things in it. When there are new posts in that folder, I make little happy squeaks of joy.
Today I add I Find Your Lack Of Faith Disturbing, a blog by one Josh Friedman, who is a hollywood screenwriter. He wrote War of the Worlds. I have not seen War of the Worlds, so I cannot say “and wow he is so great” or “But don’t hold that against him” one way or another. But his blog is just terrific. Go read it. You can start with Snakes on a Motherfucking Plane (you didn’t think this was a family blog, did you?), or The Rise of the Crimson Ape or The Joy of Specs, but really what you should do is start from the beginning and read it all the way through.
Straight into the Good Stuff folder with a bullet.
