I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE ACADEMY....

I have been recently honoured with two "Superior Scribbler" awards from two bloggers that I also admire!

The first distinction came from Allison on her blog Flying Buttresses. Allison's words were very kind and I am thrilled to be in correspondence with her. I first got hooked into Allison's blog reading about her adventures living in London, and I am equally riveted by her candid observations as she seeks meaning, connection and good music in the suburbs of Toronto (my old stomping grounds!). Allison is indeed a gem.

The second distinction came from Sean Wraight on his blog Everything is Pop, Pop is Everything. I have recently discovered Sean's blog, and I am truly impressed and awe struck by his ability to exquisitely ruminate on the music and art that he truly has a passion for. He is also officially my favourite source for theme oriented musical playlists. I look forward to checking in regularly for a more refined analysis of pop culture .

Now, time to pass the honours forward;

A shout out to Liberality - not only is she my favourite librarian, but she has sublime taste in music and can wax poetic about the personal & political like no other .

Props to Dean Wormer - he can wield a movie quote like Conan with an axe, cutting through mediocrity with swift assurance and the deadly force of his intellectual curiosity.

Also, my respect goes to Comrade Kevin - his political analysis has been refreshing and insightful over the last year, and I am equally appreciative of his ability to write honestly about his current treatment regiment and related struggles - all the best to you Kevin!
