A few random elsewhere links to thing that I think are worth reading:

  • Blog Talking Points at freakytrigger is half manifesto, half enumerated pithy comments. Enjoyable to read, even if you don't think about the content (my favourite type of writing).
  • Dan Venusberg's Magnetic Fields report saves me from also having to describe an utterly wonderful two-night experience.
  • And the more I read Neil's current Upsideclown, Suburban Gothic, the more I love it. Just so gentle, perfectly formed, and it infiltrates my mood so completely so that when it withdraws - suddenly - it leaves me there. Beautiful. The last paragraph absolutely blows me away. It's essays like this that really bring home to me how glad I am I do Upsideclown, that this kind of writing is getting a voice.
