Word Magazine - Entertainment and Music

Word Magazine - Entertainment and Music

Via Blognor Regis:

"I read every issue of the music monthy Q Magazine from January 1990 through to this spring when I'd finally had enough of the constant top 100 this, that and the other polls. I'm not sure whether I've outgrown the magazine or whether the magazine has gone downhill. I think the latter because the editors of Q back in the day, Mark Ellen and David Hepworth (who, famously, was once in a band at Oxford called Ugly Rumours with our present Prime Minister) now produce a magazine called Word."

Word Magazine writes about itself:

Word has already established a reputation as the most authoritative grown-up magazine in the entertainment and music market. Industry figures and readers have applauded the quality of its writing and presentation and its refreshing approach to its subject.

This sounds good enough that we might buy a copy.

Working With Words - Blog

Working With Words - Blog

The blog Working With Words carries the following description:

"A weblog devoted to spurring a conversation among those who use words to varying degrees in their daily work. Hosted by John Ettorre, a Cleveland-based writer and editor...."

This blog is a great addition to any blog roll for its postings on the literary world of writing and reporting.

We would, however, recommend, that the blog author post his personal political opinions to a different blog devoted to political topics. Here, they just get in the way....

Mother Tongue May Be Older Than Many Think (

Mother Tongue May Be Older Than Many Think (

The clueless linguists keep looking for the mother tongue of Indo-European in Turkey (Anatolia) rather than in places like the Baltic or elsewhere IN EUROPE or Central Asia where the Balts may originally have come from.

Funny, the Turks today do NOT speak an Indo-European language.

Berlin Blog - Pearls lost Forever

Berlin Blog is on the blog roll of our main site, Law Pundit. The reason is not only because the blog owner has a legal background, but because she writes so beautifully. A good sample is found to close out the year at Oh, right. The Poop.

"There are eight or so teenagers in my house. They have been here since Friday. Plus my brothers. And their wives.

I have lost two posts, and my mind. At the end of every day, the kids, who are otherwise scattered from Germany to Long Island to Ohio to Wisconsin, gather all four portable computers on the dining table and instant message with far away friends, and, weirdly enough, each other. Yesterday again I tried to post. I stuffed the computer into a linen closet and typed while pretending to get ready to go to the grocery store for the 17th time. I hit the post and publish button before realizing my wireless was in a dead zone. Pearls, absolute pearls, lost forever."

All of us have probably lost posts in the course of our computer travails - perhaps it just goes to show the ephemeral nature of words. Some words - said - last an instant, some words last for some time - written, but no words last forever.
