Another week in Edmonton means more great content from Edmonton bloggers. Actually, I had a conversation with someone on Twitter who felt that this weekly list references the same authors fairly frequently. I think that’s a fair comment — I don’t purport to know every blogger in the city.
So if you know someone whose post should be included in the Edmonton Blog Watch, please use this handy submission form. And feel free to submit your own posts too. I’m looking for stuff that is interesting, well-written and coherent — and, of course, written by someone from or in Edmonton. Those are my only criteria!
Without further ado, here are some of my favourite posts by Edmonton bloggers from last week (in no particular order):
- A great post from Duncan Kinney on how the Wildrose Party failed the Marshmallow Test when Danielle Smith came out against the re-listing of gender reassignment surgery.
- The Unknown Studio’s very own Scott C. Bourgeois was a guest on the Jay n’ J podcast last week. They discussed Ridley Scott’s new film Prometheus (which is getting mixed reviews).
- Chris LaBossiere wrote about Edmonton as a city with Room for Big Ideas — a great post about what we need to do to re-establish the brand of the City of Champions.
- Dave Cournoyer has a great piece on how the oil leak in the Red Deer river is not only devastating ecologically, but politically as well.
- Steven Hodges (aka the Box Breaker) revived his blog last week by sharing some of the lyrics he wrote as a young angsty teen. This had me laughing out loud — I’ve been there.
- Finally, I came across this post via Jay Runham (from Jay n’ J). Danielle writes about the seizure of Daft Punk’s graffiti art from the Paint Spot by Edmonton Police. A great read.
