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...
What a dick.
Maybe I shouldn’t judge him so harshly. There is, after all, a brotherhood among men who have split with the mothers of their children and are trying to make the best of things. I got my laminated membership card, and so does Alec Baldwin.
But I wouldn’t say this shit, especially to my kid. Especially about his Mom…that’s just over the line. And Lord knows, I’ve been put in the same situation. Which is to say, once in awhile, now and then, I get a reminder that some other people have other things to think about on this great big planet besides li’l ol’ me. Perhaps that isn’t quite as enormous of a surprise to someone like me as it is to someone like Baldwin.
But he’s entitled to his privacy, is he not? If our situations were reversed, Baldwin would respect my privacy, would he not? Perhaps. Unless I was important enough to stand in the way of something Baldwin wanted to have happen, politically. And then he wouldn’t. Take it to the bank. What if Rush Limbaugh yelled at a little girl this way and his ravings were caught on tape, what would Alec do about that?
Come to think on it — as gifted as an actor as I regard Alec Baldwin to be, the thought occurs to me. His most shining contributions to his chosen craft seem to have something to do with the angry monologue. Can’t think of an exception to this. Real talent would have given him a respectable range, but maybe he’s just been using the tried-and-true Leonardo DiCaprio “accept roles similar to what you are in real life” ploy. Which might explain why his characters are almost always assholes. Maybe Henry Hyde should take out a restraining order.
