Smart People

I have been reading and enjoying BIG OTHER, I guess, since it was started last October (just a few months ago-- really?).

Recently, though, I have found myself in awe of A.D. Jameson's posts (particularly this one and this one, but they're all interesting; plus, he's got great taste in films, except for the whole "Austin Powers" thing). John Madera has brought together a really talented bunch of writers and smart people at BIG OTHER, and you should check it out.

And speaking of smart people, Josh Billings has started a new blog, Beg Borrow Stijl, truly a cause for celebration. Josh is a brilliant guy, and the blog promises ("In Which Certain Things Get Changed Into Certain Other Things") to be an accurate representation of that brilliance.
