Linkydeux: 12.13.09



Whilst avoiding working on actual blog content and surfing the web, Frank Lee Delano struck upon the conception: what if I could surf the net in order to generate meaningless content? And so the Linkypeux was born, and it was good. Verily, 'twas too good, as its contents swelled, causing a strenuous effort to release. It was assured that a deuce must be dropped, a Linkydeux. There was sorrow amongst the land though, as genuine content suffered from the excess of deux accumulating in the bowels of the nurgh. So it was foretold, the time would come for a War of the Links, and only the fittest would survive...

IN BLOGGEST NIGHT
Coverage will be slimming down hereabouts, as some sites just take too much time to read through for too little yield. If you enjoy these pages and haven't already bookmarked them, now would be the time...

  • Politico: My political awareness has grown by leaps in this decade, but this isn't that kind of blog. Further, this stuff gets stale quick, so why bother with an archive?
  • Taxi Driver Movie: Aside from my disliking the basic format, it's mostly just links to stupid paid advertisements, mild porn, and material already covered by other sites.
  • Superior Gossip: This gossip blog was great about offering large pictures and ignoring cease and desist orders from nekkid celebutards, but the steady decline in post counts and no updates since the 1st pretty much kills it.
  • Entertainment Legends Revealed: Again, no updates in months, which is a shame, given it was my only news and TV coverage at times.
  • Ain't It Cool News: Not especially. Too much fake/none news, too many spoilers, too much hyperbole and bad reviews. We'll keep up with the @ssholes Comic Column, though.

FYI, Entertainment Legends does update every week (at least the comics ones), but for whatever reason the site back dates them. It's really stupid, and causes problems like yours, but they do update fairly regularly.

Yeah, I still link to Comic Legends Revealed via CBR on Lindpeux posts (next up Thursday,) but the Entertainment Legends site itself seems to be dead. It's a shame, as I enjoyed the movie and music columns.
