Alarming News: I like Morgan Freeberg. A lot.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: We were following a trackback and thinking "hmmm... this is a bloody excellent post!", and then we realized that it was just part III of, well, three...Damn. I wish I'd written those.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: ...I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is an intriguing guy...[he] asks great questions and answers others with style, flair, reason and wit. On the blogroll he goes. Make him a part of your regular blogospheric reading. I certainly will.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is brilliant.
Common Sense Junction: Misha @ Anti-Idiotarian never ceases to amaze me. He keeps finding other good blogs. I went over to A.I. this morning for my daily Misha fix and he had found this guy named Morgan Freeberg in Fair Oaks, California, that has a blog, House of Eratosthenes. Freeberg says its "The Blog That Nobody Reads" but it may now become the blog that everybody reads.
Jaded Haven: Good God, Morgan, you cover a topic from front to back with a screwy thoroughness I find mind boggling. I'm in awe of your thought proccesses, my friend, you're an exceptional talent. You start by throwing in the kitchen sink, tie in someone's syphilitic uncle, bend around a rip tide of brilliance and bring it all home in a neat, diamond dripping package of an exceptionally readable moment of damn fine wordsmithing. I love reading you.
Mein Blogovault: Make "the Blog that No One Reads" one of your daily reads.
Philmon: When Morgan meanders, stick with him - he's got a point and it'll be worth it in the end. He's not a hit-and-run snarky quip kind of guy. The pieces all fall into place like tumblers in a lock and bang! He's opened a cognative door for you.
Rightlinx: Morgan at House of Eratosthenes is one of the best writers out there. I read him nearly every day because he manages to provide an interesting perspective, even though I don't always agree.
Poetic Justice: Cletus! Ah gots a laiv one fer yew...
George Lucas is still screwin’ around…picking at his lifetime masterpiece like a little boy picking at the crusty scab on his knee.
Screw it, I say. I have a story too, and I’ve been just itching to make that stupid duck into a pelican. Pelicans are just as surreal and exotic and giggle-inspiring as ducks, and they’ve got more business being around the ocean. Probably make better pets too. So if Lucas gets to stir his own pudding then I can do the same. A pelican it is.
Also, I would argue my story has done a much better job of mirroring real life. Still not clear after all these decades why exactly the rebel alliance got started. Slavery? Some fans are under the impression the rebellion represents the Confederate States of America and Emperor Palpatine represents Lincoln…so that doesn’t work. Clear win for my side. Hope the Pelican is dead…History and Logic are in complete agreement, Rhetoric is — well okay. In my story she runs up a huge mound of debt and hits the road, in reality the bitch is still around and we’ve gotta listen to her prattle on some more next week. But it mostly works. Pretty good for two and a half years, if I dare say so myself.
And Han shot first, George.
