March of the Internet Nobody, day seventeen: Reblog week, part five…

Since Friday is also Cosmic Photo prompt day, I thought I’d make my final burst of guest posts all photo blogs, so without further ado, let me introduce today’s trio.

Yu Deng is a photo journalist and designer who has captured some great shots of Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg in his post, Benelux.

John Kerridge shows us the vivid African colours of an art installation by Lubaina Himid, in his post, Naming The Money, Lubainia Himid, Spike Island, Bristol.

And for my final reblog this week, Dizma takes us on a tour of Liverpool, sharing views of the docks, Anthony Gormley’s beach sculptures and the city itself.

So there you have it, a total of fifteen blogs that you might never have found, with something for everyone to enjoy.

Once again, you’re welcome.

Don’t go away, the first of those three will be with you any minute now…

March of the Internet Nobody, day sixteen: Reblog week, part four…

Hi, sorry I’m late, it’s been a busy evening.

I’m only here to introduce today’s guests, anyway, so let’s get on with it.

First up, Hula Jellyfish, which is a brand new blog and I’m going to let her tell you all about herself in Hello fellow humans, I’m Hula Jellyfish (I wonder if that’s her real name). Certainly one to watch, I’m confident of that.

Then we have Josh Wrenn and My Friday blog, that is, his blog, called “My Friday blog”, not my Friday blog, if you see what I mean. Anyway, his post, Portions of letters never sent is touching, funny and heartbreaking all at once.

And finally today, some exotic romance for you, in the form of a story from The Tavern Thoughts and a beautifully evocative post, The Haggle.

Enjoy.
See you tomorrow for my last batch of reblog recommendations and the Cosmic Photo prompt.

Reblog: OF ASSASSINATION & GITANES

The last of my opening salvo of reblogs this week is from a man with a truly unique style. His blog, The Drivellings of Twattersley Fromage is a glorious mixture of fiction, poetry and the sort of outright nonsense that Edward Lear would be proud of.

Here is a slice of wartime intrigue, from the always artfully articulate Mr Mike Steeden…

 ‘No other capital city in the world can do grey quite like London,’ her passing thought. A thought dismissed almost as soon as it arrived. For as of now, there was the little matter of the naked Ambassador lying as prone as prone could be, upon his back atop a plainly hideously expensive Afghan rug to attend to. Clearly, her stiletto heel dug into his pudgy chest bone was causing the gratifying discomfort intended. Moreover, that he knew exactly what was coming next. Not that he needed a clue, the silencer affixed to her pistol and aimed at his forehead was, regardless, the giveaway. Was that a tear in his eye? Mattered not. She wondered how he might beg for mercy had it been the case that he had not been adeptly gagged.  How so naked? Her trademark of course, her panache, her cultivated style.

“Gosh it’s so very bitter…

Reblog: Chiromancy

Hello again, it’s time to introduce you to a new blog by two friends of mine. I’m going to give you two posts to start with, one by Todd and this first one by Dustin, I really hope you’ll enjoy their wonderful writing.

Ladies and gentlemen, Dustin Tyler…

Reflections from the End of the World

dustin story.jpg

By Dustin Tyler

I had a dream last night about red balloons rising over a beautiful skyline. I didn’t see them get released—they were just in-mid air and I was a silent observer, slowly following them higher and higher until we were past the tallest buildings and the sounds from the street below went silent. It was the most peaceful dream of my life, the most peaceful moment, and it was fake. Before I woke up, I tried to reach out as far as I could and grab just one balloon, but somehow, someway I knew I couldn’t. That’s how I knew that you would be gone when I woke up.

.You’re always leaving me. It doesn’t matter if it’s a warm summer night filled with lightning bugs and hope, or amid a bitter snowfall that blankets desire. I use only my elbows to get out of bed. The sheets…

March of the Internet Nobody, day thirteen: Reblog week…

I’ve been trying to vary the content in this, my month of daily posting and I thought a good way to really mix it up would be to feature writing by other bloggers.

Happily, only this morning I found a post from some old friends, who I’ve been looking forward to reading new material from for some time, so their blog gets the first guest spot.

But there will be two more today and another three each day this week, so you might have 15 new blogs to follow by Friday, how cool is that?

Another reason for this literary largesse is that I have been so busy recently that I have barely had time to go through the dozens of e-mails I get each day, most of which bring notifications of blogs I follow. This has left me with a terrible case of blogger’s guilt, since I always feel I should reciprocate when you lovely people visit Diary of an Internet Nobody and leave your fabulous comments (I’m probably just setting myself up to feel guilty about the blogs I fail to mention this week, too, but that can’t be helped) so I hope this helps compensate in some small way for my temporary absence from your various corners of the blogosphere.

So the next post you will see, in just a few minutes, will be from Todd and Dustin and their new blog, Reflections From The End Of The World, I hope you’ll show them (and my other guests this week) some love.

Thank you for your attention.

Reblog: George Michael was killed in US airstrike claims Russia Today

Some satire, to lighten the sad news of another talented performer’s passing. Goodbye, George, we’ll miss your honesty and integrity…

SOZ SATIRE

George Michael Last Christmas? Yep, pretty much, and it’s all thanks to the Yanks says Russia Today

Following the death of pop superstar, George Michael last night, Russian media outlet, Russia Today, have sensationally claimed that Michael was killed by a guided missile fired from an American F16 fighter jet whose pilot was under direct orders from President Barack Obama to neutralise the Last Christmas star.

In a bulletin hours after the star’s death had been announced by his publicist, a Russia Today newsreader made the astonishing claim: “George Michael was targeted by the United States Airforce, no question. He was killed by a heat-seeking missile, specially programmed to target his oven when he opened the door to get the turkey out.

“Our heroic President, Vladimir Putin, tried to intervene when he learned of the plan, but Obama wouldn’t listen, just as he won’t listen when Mr Putin begs him to stop…

Trump (reblogged from Linda G Hill)…

image

Anyone who has been following me for a while probably has a pretty fair idea about my opinion of Donald “Fuckface von Clownstick” Trump and although I have no real wish to grant him the oxygen of publicity in any but the most scathing and derisive way, some other bloggers take a more mature approach. (Which we’ll get to in a minute; the photo is one of mine)

As a British citizen, I am fortunate enough to be sufficiently removed from the unhinged wig womble, that his imminent elevation to the most powerful powerful man on Earth (think about that for a moment; The most powerful man ON EARTH) will not immediately or directly impact on my life. But as we all know (after all, you’re probably reading this thousands of miles away from where I sit typing) the modern world is an increasingly small place and, no matter where we live, global events are now just that; Global.
We should all worry that a man who is so obviously driven by self-interest and an amoral thirst for personal power is so close to being the representative of one of the most influential nations on the planet and that makes it all of our responsibilities to call upon those who have the ability to prevent that from happening, to do so for the good of us all.

One heartfelt and straightforward reiteration of this, my not very humble opinion, was just posted by one of the most popular, generous and genuine people that I’ve met since I started blogging on WordPress and I’m pleased to reblog her post here.

Ladies and gentlemen, Linda G Hill…

I feel nauseous just typing the name. But I’ve stayed quiet long enough. I find I have no choice but to speak out. Why, you ask? I realize the chances of changing the mind of anyone who is determined to put him in office is slim to none. But there are people out there whose voices might be heard. My ultimate plea is to those who can make a difference. Also, I feel by not saying anything, my silence in a way condones the possibility that my children and grandchildren will live in a far less free world than I have enjoyed.

I am Canadian. Let’s get that out of the way right now. I have no say in who becomes President of the United States. That is up to the conscience of the society south of my home’s border. But the fact is, the fateful decision to elect this…
