Last week was kind of a big one in Edmonton. Oprah was in town hot on the heels of her interview with Lance Armstrong; the Oilers were back in action; and there was even some movement on the arena file at city council. But those topics weren’t the only inspirations for thought-provoking content in the Edmonton blogosphere this week. Oh my, no. There was lots more.
Before I get to that, I just want to remind you that you can always suggest content for the Edmonton Blog Watch using our handy submission form.
Let’s start this week’s blog watch off with Oprah:
- Mack Male wrote about Oprah’s event at Rexall. Sounds like it was a pretty great evening for fans and non-fans alike.
- One thing marred Oprah’s evening in Edmonton, according to Todd Babiak (and I agree with him) — the gift of truck nuts she was given.
- Speaking of Rexall, Wanye Gretz gushed about the arena decision last week. And Don Iveson clarified why he voted against the motion on the 23rd.
- Mike Otto over at the Charrette wrote about lighting the High Level Bridge, and how there’s a good way to do that and a bad way.
- James Leask had a lot to say about fan-art contests, in the context of one HBO is running for Game of Thrones.
- Finally Chris LaBossiere couldn’t hold it in any longer, and shared a very negative customer service experience at Volkswagen Audi.
