Blogs On Which I Groove, Truly
Blogs (including mine) On Which I Groove

* Antics in Candyland
Candice Dyer is a north Georgian, Appalachian writer whose style I truly dig because it is an honest weaving of really groovy word-choices, the weft and warp creating a wonderful tapestry deftly delineating her subject matter with the harshness and the beauty of the mountainous region that inspires her creative rhetoric. She possesses a scathing wit that can be as incongruously compassionate as the gamut of human emotions necessitates. It will be groovy when the rest of the world embraces her undeniable talents.
* Dallas Smith
Dallas Smith is a musician, filmmaker, photographer, and philosopher originally from my hometown Columbus, Georgia, The Fountain City. He plays in a world music band named Mynta that tours Europe and the mid-East. This blog (Thoughts at Large, Cultural Observations Inspired by my Travels) stimulates thought via rhetoric and wonderful photography. Enjoy.
* Democracy Now!
Democracy Now!’s War and Peace Report provides our audience with access to people and perspectives rarely heard in the U.S.corporate-sponsored media, including independent and international journalists, ordinary people from around the world who are directly affected by U.S. foreign policy, grassroots leaders and peace activists, artists, academics and independent analysts. In addition, Democracy Now! hosts real debates–debates between people who substantially disagree, such as between the White House or the Pentagon spokespeople on the one hand, and grassroots activists on the other.
* Marijuana And Cannabis Blog
Cannabis has world changing abilities and is too valuable for our society to be illegal. On this blog all aspects of cannabis will be discussed. From the huge environmental and social benefits of the hemp plants to the controversial medicinal value of it’s female flower.
* My Blogs (Archived)
This link will take you to a page that not only contains my monthly blogs (chronicling the epic journey of a weed-inspired poet's attempt to sing jazz vocals), but it will also grant you access to my lyrics, my essays, and, coming soon, my poetry and short stories.
* Patrick McCurry
I write about musical events--mainly the ones I would like to hear--in the area around the Auburn-Opelika community where I live in Alabama. I am a musician and coordinate A Little Lunch Music, a weekly series at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art during spring and fall.
* Star Talk
What can I say? It's Neil deGrasse Tyson. Got Science?
* The Dew Abides
A blog from my friends Jenn Collins and Brad Barnes
* The Weed Blog
What can I say? Recreational marijuana is now legal in the states of Washington and Colorado (talk about your Rocky Mountain high); Gay marriage is now allowed in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington; the first openly lesbian senator, Tammy Baldwin, was elected in Wisconsin; and, locally (Columbus, GA) alcohol can now be sold in liquor stores on Sunday.
* Thom Hartman's Blog
He is also a four-time Project Censored-award-winning, New York Times best-selling author. His national daily progressive radio talk show, now in its eighth year on the air, replaced Al Franken on the Air America Radio Network, is distributed to radio stations nationwide by Dial-Global, Pacifica, and Free Speech TV. More people listen daily to the Thom Hartmann Program than any other progressive talk show in the nation. For the past two years in a row, Talkers Magazine names Thom Hartmann as the 10th most important talk show host in America, and the #1 most important progressive host, in their “Heavy Hundred” ranking.
