5 Blogs & 5 Blawgers

Beck & Herrmann at Drug & Device Law tagged us last week with the latest Internet meme.  (Until their tag, I also was clueless on the meaning of "Internet meme," but it seems to me to be the blogger equivalent of a chain-letter... - SBS).   This particular meme asks us to (1) identify five non-law blogs that we find interesting, and (2) tag five law-bloggers to do the same thing.

So, first, Beck & Herrmann want to know what non-law blogs we read in our spare time.  Chris reports that his blogs of choice are "all law, all the time," but Bill and Sheila have some non-law blogs in their favorites: 

Zooglobble - Kids and family music - news, reviews, and more. (Bill reads this.)

Chocolate and Zucchini - Written by Clotilde Dusoulier, a Parisian woman who shares her passion for all things food related. (Sheila reads this.)

Wonkette - Political gossip, satire, and sometimes news. (Bill & Sheila both read this.)

Paper Cuts - Written by the editors of the NYT Book Review about books and other forms of printed matter.  (Sheila reads this.)

Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child - The blog for the radio show hosted by Bill and his kids on Northampton, Massachusetts station 93.9 The River.  He writes this.

(There are a lot more we could add, and we could probably cheat and do so, but we won't...except that Bill can't resist: I also read, among many others, Deadspin, Cake Wrecks, Damning Capsule Reviews, The Unofficial Apple Weblog, Cinematic Titanic, and The RiffTrax Blog.)

And now we're supposed to tag five blawgers to continue this game:

First, we tag Professors Stier, Erichson, Lahav and Burch over at Mass Tort Litigation.   

We'd also love to know which non-law blogs Ted Frank and Walter Olson at Overlawyered read in their spare time (if they have spare time).

Brooks Schuelke always has something interesting to say.

Finally, let's tag some non-torts people - what do Contracts Prof and Property Prof read?

As I noted when Ron Miller sought to tag me on this, I am a conscientious objector to these chain-letter memes, but Overlawyered's blogroll and second blogroll include such reliable non-law sites as
Obscure Store, Terry Teachout, and
Arts & Letters Daily, and for those who want something more visual I'll throw in antique photo blog Shorpy and architectural BLDGBlog.
