Weblog findings

I just added two weblogs to the blogroll (see left column).

Classical Journey, run by "Luch Càise-Dearg" (a pseudonym meaning "red cheese mouse"), is the companion blog to the Phonic FM radio show Classical Journey, and is largely on topics relating to classical music and arts events in the Exeter area, Handily, it reminded me to mention the Topsham-based Exeter Alternative Theatre's forthcoming production of Quills at the Barnfield Theatre.

And Beachcombing's Bizarre History Blog (kindly recommended by "Leon" at MetaFilter): "The outlandish, the anomalous and the curious from the last 5000 years". Among wide-ranging topics, it has a number of regional and literary posts, such as: Mary Anning and the Fire from Heaven (about a family belief that the Lyme Regis fossil-hunter was vitalized by a lightning strike); Missing Holmes (about Sherlock Holmes cases, such as the Giant Rat of Sumatra, that Conan Doyle only alludes to); a series on 'Invisible Libraries' (books that exist only as allusions or fake titles); a series on 'Burning Libraries' (in reality and fiction); and a 'Bizarre Bibliography'.

  1. You are once again, with this post, responsible for my having spent several hours wandering in amazement through mazes when I should have been doing other things...
