...just some favourite sites...
all the independent sites I've trawled through over
the last six years, The
Bactra Review - along w/the associated Notebooks
and the weblog Three-Toed
Sloth - provides the finest general intellectual
content across the broadest range. No contest.
For satire/politics/humour the
Onion and the mighty Fafblog!
remain the very best...
The Australian citizenry debate politics/ethics/ideas/actions
Kingston's Webdiary...to which I've been
known to contribute.
Amidst the plethora of academic sites - most scandalously
inaccessible to the general public for absolutely NO
good reason - my favourites are The
Bryn Mawr Classical Review, The
Human Nature Review, and The
Post-Autistic Economics Review...all of which
generally feature good writing, serious scholarship
rather than obfuscation, and a fairly broad range of
ideas/disciplines. That only one of the three is clearly
associated with academia as such is - perhaps - merely
an interesting coincidence...
Non-mainstream vernacular musics - particularly from
the last few decades - are most fruitfully first encountered
Sound Forever, although I must also plug
digitalis & the Broken
Face weblog for current affairs in this zone...but
- hell - I'm also well partial to them as they've recently
issued the lost domain's
first international release...
Anyway, in addition to these, I'll soon be adding some
sources for more archaic musical styles...that is -
once I've updated my old searches in these areas...
And, over time, I'll also add more links to this page
- in various areas - but will restrict my entries to
unique/independent & valuable sources of information
and insight. The corporate giants, after all, can look
