This kinda reminds me of the Summer of 2005. Once again you're reading the pages of a fringe site, no loner 'the only' site - and thank goodness for that. It's been hard trying to be impartial, especially when I know better. It's almost dishonest to really believe there's good on that side of the aisle. You've got your exceptions, but don't hold your breath waiting to meet many of these - whether at UF or later in life: once a douche-bag, always a douchebag.
SwampFrontLawn makes me nauseous. Whatever its alleged roots may be (there's various theories), I take it for what it is: system-propaganda inspired by the Kim Cruts School of Journalism. That senate vote was a sham if there ever was one and the Independent Florida Alligator did a fine job of not letting me down. I've come to attribute that newspaper with ineptness and mediocrity. And boy do they deliver!
The other blogs talk a lot of trash. I'm not sure who runs Swamp, but two names that I've been hearing more and more are Josh Simmons, Pedro Morales, with a small few claiming Will Foster. But I don't personally agree with these suggestions, mainly b/c the quality of blogging almost requires actually being at UF. But knowing would kinda ruin it, I like wondering.
The Ken Kerns interview should be out sometime this week. No, no bullshit, I mean it!!! Parts 1&2 that is, this Q&A was a fuckin MONSTER and we still have Part IV in the works. Ken has also agreed to allow me to run a contest with his upcoming book. Ken Kerns is a man with a lot going on and you'll really want to find out more!
I'm also awaiting the Sam Miorelli interview. My email was done for a few days, but I'm back up.
Oh yeah....HAPPY 3 YEARS TO MY FAVORITE BLOG OF ALL TIME :)
