Need some culture fix? We’ve got your back. Here’s a list of active, juicy blogs to fill your content craving with. Oh, and these, of course, all come second to wwwireframe.
We’re King of all things written. (Or so we’d like to believe.)
A large and prominent member of the blogosphere, GOOD covers anything from mainstream news to subculture and various other niche topics, all delivered with GOOD’s own brand of opinion. They are, despite being just a blog and not a news corporation, perhaps more impartial in their writing than, I don’t know, say, FOX News (granted, that’s not a hard feat to achieve).
Don’t get me wrong, though; they have opinions and give them, too, and their opinions are strong at that, but they’re sure to convey all the facts as the foundation for their opinions. All in all, they’re informative and entertaining.
2. Experimental Philosophy
The articles at Experimental Philosophy will make you think, they’ll spin your head, and, although it’s not the prettiest of blogs, it’s a blog of quality content. It discusses, in contemporary terms, the ideas that were discussed back in the days of Confucius and Aristotle and ideas that will continue to be discussed with the expansion of time.
The blog’s contributors include several creditable names and it even sponsors a few conferences and meet-ups. All in all, a great read for the geeky side in us all.
Personally, I don’t quite understand the fashion industry. No, scratch that, I understand it fine — it’s a rich snob’s dress up game — but what I don’t understand is how we’ve managed to stamp “industry” in there. Like, are we really so bored that we’ve made an industry out of colored threads?
Anyways, for those of you who enjoy keeping up with the fashion, er, thing, Fashionologie is quite the place for you. The site, for one, is just pretty. Nice design. The content is quality, too; they provide you with fashion news, models, show coverage, etc. I’m not even big on the whole fashion scene, but the Oscar’s article caught my eye. I recommend it.
4. Food Coma
Food Coma is where I go to indulge myself in cravings at maximum. It’s not just all food, though. Emma, the author, includes quite a cute sense of humor and anecdotes in all her articles, and she’s a superb photographer (that’s evident through all those pictures of luscious dishes).
Her recipes are both simple and mouth-watering. It goes without saying that her husband is a lucky man, a very lucky man indeed.
Gawker, while so obviously not biased, is probably the best-humored and most entertaining blog to have hit the big time since Lord knows what. They call themselves a “gossip blog”, and boy oh boy, they do live up to it.
They’re funny, though, real funny, and even when I disagree with their stance on something, I still laugh with them. It’s hard not to.
