Chris from THE TEMPLE OF SCHLOCK ( http://templeofschlock.blogspot.com/ )has kindly passed on the prestigious (?) blog award called the PREMIO DARDO to us here at the Library and we have humbly accepted. Thank you, sir! This makes us one of a growing number of worthy bloggers to receive same as a part of the whole deal is that you, upon receipt, must choose 5 other bloggers (or 15 according to some sources!) and bestow said award upon them as well.
As I understand it, the PREMIO DARDO is designed to recognize unique voices and visions on the Web as well as to promote fraternization amongst bloggers of all sorts. The rules as they were passed on to me are:
1) Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and a link to his/her blog.
2) Pass the award to another 5 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgement, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.
Now the hard part--choosing 5 from the ever-growing list of daily blog stops. So, without further ado--and with apologies to all other worthy candidates (you guys know I loves ya!), I pass on the PREMIO DARDO AWARD to the following folks:
1) JON'S RANDOM ACTS OF GEEKERY ( http://waffyjon.blogspot.com/ ) Enthusiastic presentation of pop culture ephemera, comic art and monster memorabilia, updated regularly and always fun as well as nostalgic!
2) RANDOMTHOUGHTSFROMASLEEPDEPRIVED BRAIN ( http://lisa-mynx.blogspot.com/) Lisa Jones is a collector and researcher of just about everything and the Web is her oyster. Here, she shares WTF moments and NSFW cartoons gleened from a thousand online sources as well as a take it or leave it attitude that leads to some great storytelling of her own from time to time.
3) FERRAN DELGADO'S BLOG ( http://ferrandelgado.blogspot.com/) A classy comic book art blog of the highest order, based in Spain but it can be translated into English.
4) POP CULTURE SAFARI (http://popculturesafari.blogspot.com/ ) is John Firehammer's clearinghouse for great pop weblinks--music, comics, books, art, articles and pop culture in the news are all linked here daily so you don't miss any of the really cool stuff happening online or off.
5) SOMETHING OLD, NOTHING NEW ( http://zvbxrpl.blogspot.com/ ) Jaime Weinman offers opinionated musings on popular and unpopular culture as well as restored WKRP episodes on a regular basis. Always a good time at this blog!
You are, of course, under no obligation to accept nor to pass it on (let's face it, it's a "chain letter.") but, hey, it's a bit of recognition and it's kinda fun so I hope you do accept in the spirit in which it has been given. Thank you all for continued enjoyable work!
