The good Doc

Basically Dr Rusty is begging for admission to the illustrious world of Munu...his exact words involved asking something about cooling down his food (at least that's what I took "blow" to mean).

Pixy - I'm actually travelling and won't be back until next week but Rusty would dearly love to join and I think he'd be a good addition. He's political and interesting. Oh great Pixy if it is deemed worthy do you mind speaking directly to Rusty and getting it set up?

It looks like Teresa over at Technicalities could use a change of scenery!

OK...either you all think that the sites I recommend are crap, or you don't visit them. I'm OK with that, but I'm about to offer up two of them that I think would be fabulous additions.

First, Meryl Yourish at I have no idea if anyone has recommended her, but boy, oh boy, could she benefit from using MT. She's really fabulous and if you've never visited her, you should. I'm not sure how interested she would be to make the move, but it's worth a try.

The other is Sarcastic Journalist. Her blog is appropriately titled, but she's looking to possibly make a change to her current blog, or add a blog that may showcase more of her writing. She is a journalist and has written a book that she is currently trying to market. She is also pregnant and was recently fired for writing her blog. Yes, really.

What do you say?

How about a more literary blog?

The Answer Seeking Gal! Some of you may be shocked that I recommend this type of blog, but I'm not sure we have anything like it here at and she's really wonderful. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry, philosophy...who doesn't appreciate that? She's very passionate and willing to expand her horizons. Give her a look-see and take her into consideration.

Let's import some royalty

I'd like to nominate Nick Queen from Patriot Paradox. Unfortunately you won't be able to get a look at that site until next month as his host shut him down for exceeding bandwidth allotments. Dirty rotten scoundrels! At the moment he is a patriot in exile.

You may have heard of Nick already as he's the founder of the King of the Blogs tourney. Tomorrow is also his birthday. I've already got a second in Harvey and Nick has already expressed a desire to emigrate. All we need is a general "yay" and we should be golden.

what about the minorities?

First of all many thanks to Mookie & RocketJones who nominated me to join y'all. & where the heck would we be w/o the good Rev.?

The Smallest Minority is probably the most well written firearms related blog that's still on the "B" site. But in the running is GeekwithA.45.

I have no idea if they'd be interested in a move but if the purpose is to get good blogs off of the "B" site then I think these two are much more deserving than I ever was.

So what say (or Yay!) y'all?

How Awkward, indeed...

I used to work with JQ (How Awkward) when I was at CNNSI.

Good guy, good friend, good writer; does he have the potential to come over?

Belomnt Club

Unfortunately, Wretchard the Cat of Belmont Club has opted not to move to This is due, in part, to the fact that he expresses some hesitation about whether or not his blog is truly in the spirit of munuviana.

Ces't la vie.

Whimsy Capricious

Harvey's latest blogchild has been (inexplicably) relegated to the backwoods of BlogSpot. Good stuff and great attitude.

Llamas Aboard!

Hi, everybody! (Chorus: Hi, Dr. Nick!)

Just wanted to poke the Llama nose in and say thankee much for inviting us into the Munuvian world. We're looking forward to it and hope that our heapin' servings of meaty, woolly, snippy llama-love do justice to the invite.

Pardon our dust until we get settled into our new digs. (This is my first experience with MT and I feel a little like the guy frantically trying to decide whether to cut the red or the green wire with the timer running down to two seconds.) We're hoping to make the jump pretty quickly. In the meantime, we'll be pounding away over at Blogger.

Thanks again!

Yip! Yip! Yip!

They seem willing to make the move.

I wonder why they declined before, but they may be ripe for another invite?

They would fit right in here, I think.

Blogspot Updrgades

Bogspot has upgraded.

Here is the text of a post on the subject


Hooray! The "improvements" at (Pyra) seem not to have caused any crashes or prolonged service outages this time -- though the new software does not like the bit of Java I use to protect my Gmail address from spammers. My code worked fine on the old software but I did expect the "improvements" to be anything but. They no longer let you use the two-window "classic" interface either. Ho hum. Definitely a bureaucratic version of "improvement".

I emailed Pyra's Jason Shellen with an advance copy of the above comment. He replied: "Awfully pessimistic given the bevy of improvements like: this. There is even a way to preview your post on the page, if you do miss the 'classic' interface. See here".

My qualified relief was shortlived, however. As I originally expected, I had a lot of trouble getting this post up.

Looks like there should be some willing immigrants soon.

The post above came from Dissecting Leftism

I Can't Believe I Didn't Suggest It Sooner

Cathy Seipp. Has anyone felt out Cathy Seipp about moving off Journalspace?

Unlike many bloggers, I don't have one particular "blogfather." The closest I come to having one is, I once wanted to comment on Cathy's daughter's blog and, when I attempted to, Journalspace demanded "free registration" first--and free registration came with a free blog. Total accidental blogging.

But Miz Seipp is brilliant, witty, and cute. (I don't lay that kinda praise on a woman every day, now. You g'wan mark that on the calendar.) Moreover, she's a professional writer. I think she'd be a major feather-in-the-cap for Munuvia, if she'd be willing to move. And considering that her ex-husband ostensibly once hacked her Journalspace blog, I think it's just possible that she'd jump at the chance to go

What does anyone else think? What does The Master think? 'Cause you know if Pixy told me to vote Kerry, I'd have to at least think about it.

For so many reasons...

Has anyone suggested Mrs. Frinklin, aka ensie, yet?

How about some Abercrombie?

Amanda Doerty, the Hot Abercrombie Chick is languishing on Blog*Spot. For those who haven't heard of her, she's a relatively new blogger and quite quickly becoming very popular. She specializes in insightful posts that encourage a lot of discussion. Plus she's currently beign accused of being a hoaxer - seems some people think she's a Hot Tommy Hilfiger Guy. Either way it's an excellent blog.

I like ta-tas. A LOT!! But that's not what I nominate Munuvians based upon.

The "Hot Abercrombie Chick" title is very tongue-in-cheek. (Mmm...tongues and cheeks...mmmmm).

I encountered links to the Chick at Harvey's place a couple of times. I was impressed because Harvey wasn't gushing over her virtual boobies (very odd for Harvey) but was actually linking to posts that had ongoing intelligent conversation and debate in their comments based on the intelligent conversation and debate! I don't read her site unless I come across a reference link but the posts that I have read were pretty intelligently written. She never made it to my blogroll (and never rated an in depth examination) because she's on Blogger and I just don't have the time for more regular reads that can't be pulled by my agregator.

Y'all should know by now that I dont' give a fig if a blogger is male, female, straight, gay, bi, human, whatever. Jawkins' attack on Michele didn't matter here because I wasn't nominating Amanda for showing boobs or even for talking about them. If I misjudged her (and that's entirely possible) then fine, don't invite her in. Just don't make the mistake of thinking that I nominated her because she titillates me.

Iraq Blogs

Any favored Iraqi or Middle Eastern Blogs anyone thinks would be a good fit?

WTF Is It Now?

Well, it's WTF Is It Now!

I'm not sure if he's itching to get off of Blogger. But, you never know. I think he would be a great addition.

The Fusileer Pundit at WeckUpToThees is interested in an upgrade from Blogspot. I had him come take a look at a few of the blogs here, and he seemed to like what he saw. Take a look at him. He's an awesome guy with a great little family, and I think he'd bring something good to the table.

I found him through the Milblogs ring just at the time that he was coming back home from his deployment and I've read him ever since. Heck of a nice guy.

He does have a few questions that I couldn't answer, so if one of you Incredible Blog-o-riffic types could hit him at his email, I'm sure he'd appreciate some technical info before committing to a switchover. Sorry, I don't have his email with me, but it is on his site.

Thanks, guys (that's a euphamistic and totally inclusive "guys", by the way).
