Welcome to the December 27, 2009 edition of Everything Worth Reading. Whoo-hoo! Last post of the year, and of the decade! My heart leapt with joy as I read through the linkage, finding some really hot stuff. Then it sank when it got into the spam, business, and how-to (really, Gracie, it's not gonna happen). Then it rose once more with tales of lard and beer. Ah, it's the little things, isn't it?
Jim Murdoch presents Haiku and its related forms: an introductory essay posted at The Truth About Lies, saying, "Haiku has become increasingly popular in recent years. On the surface it's a simple form of poetry but thousands of words have been written about what an acceptable haiku is and most of these begin with a discussion of whether the number of syllables makes any difference in an English haiku. This essay is no different. It begins by asking that question and then discusses the fundamentals of writing haiku followed by an extensive glossary and many links."
Phillip Jeffers presents The Suffering of Modern Travelled Youth ? by Oliver Mitchell posted at The Global Guru articles & travel blog.
Madeleine Begun Kane presents It Is Hereby Resolved (New Year?s Resolution Humor) posted at Mad Kane's Humor Blog.
POST OF THE MONTH
Shaun Duke presents Why Avatar Will Suck, and Everyone Will See It Anyway posted at The World in the Satin Bag.
Post Of The Month. Because of an Awesome Title.
A Markle presents About Death and Housekeeping posted at Andrew Markle.
I thought housekeeping was death. We'll never know. I kept this in because I thought it would be a good read only to find that the link is 404'd. Dangit! A Markle, resubmit!
Seth Plummer presents The State of Now: Is Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder? posted at Cranky Commentary, saying, "Any and all correspondence and critiques are welcome and encouraged."
A tree? You can grow beer? Really? Almost Post of the Month because, no, you can't grow beer.
From post title to blog title, this is so wrong that it's right.
