Welcome to the November 29, 2009 edition of Everything Worth Reading. I am actually not hung over this morning even though I drank last night, and so your carnival is on time. Wow! It's been a while. Thanks to all who contributed; this month is quite a trip.
Not like a cat on a hot tin roof.
Jim Murdoch presents Where are all the poetical prodigies? posted at The Truth About Lies, saying, "Music has its Mozarts, art its Picassos but what about poetry? Where are all the poetical prodigies? What is there about the nature of poetry that stops youngsters creating works of genius? There have been young poets in the past who have been successful, a few have even become successful as adults but they're very much the exceptions. Is it simply lack of life experience or is there more holding them back?"
Remember Elaine's dancing? Yeah, good times.
Post Of The Month!
Kallen Johnstone presents The bastard stole my shoes! posted at The Rambling Journey, saying, "An amusing story that took place on my recent trip to Japan..."
The Beatles and Japan. Good mix.
Christopher Brooks presents Very Top Five... Ways to name a chemical element posted at Very Top Five Blog, saying, "After studying the periodic table of elements, as I am wont to do, I noticed that scientists are often very lazy when it comes to names. There are only five different ways of naming elements! Could be handy knowlwdge if you ever happen to discover a new one..."
Clumanium. Bizarniam. Plinc. Klonk. This is fun.
Sarah Clark presents The Mother Load: Your kids are trying to kill you. True story! posted at The Mother Load.
Michelle Bell presents Marriage, or why I really really want same sex couples to be able to marry. posted at The Gaytheists, saying, "Why I support gay marriage, and why anyone who has a slightly modern relationship and enjoys it should, too."
Every now and then, I let the politics slip in. Especially when I agree. Especially when it's on a blog by a gaytheist. I like new madeup words.
Lucynda, you should try lighting a bag of dog crap on fire and leaving it on the porch. That's what works in the movies.
Marcus Hochstadt presents Reflecting And Celebrating The Fall Of The Berlin Wall posted at The Germany Blog, saying, "The Berlin Wall left a major mark on German life. 20 years after the Fall of the Berlin Wall, Germans gathered at the Brandenberg Gate to reflect on the impact and celebrated the collapse of the Wall."
