Thinking Genius and Updated Linkage

I'm nothing if not tardy, as Julie nominated me April 11th for the thinking blogger award. It's not that I can't think, it's just that I've been covered up at work and The Offspring's science fair project (remember LAST YEAR?) has been all-consuming. Worst of all, so many of the people I planned to honor have already been nominated! One of the requirements was to refer back to this, so there ya go.

1. James Burnett. Always smart, entertaining, and makes me think about things from all perspectives.
2. Mocha Momma. She's not blogging much now, but when she's got something to say - listen up!
3. Piglet. Writing straight from the heart, with poetry thrown in to make you think even more.
4. Angelina. Read along, and you'll find yourself exploring new mental paths.
5. Mist1, who basically makes me think that my life is completely dull.

I'm wondering if any are duplications - so I've thrown in two bonus clips of "sound bloggers," that make me think differently...about MUSIC!

This first link was sent to me by a friend. I absolutely love the way he thumps the guitar and keeps a beat. His name is Andy McKee, and you can check out his new album here.

If you know Bella Fleck and the Flecktones, then you might know Victor Wooten. If you're not a fan of bass guitar, you will be after you watch this:

Tiggerlane's thought for the day: I'm pink, therefore I'm Spam.

Congrats on your Thinking Blogger award. I've been awarded this a few times, but I totally disagree with the views of the originator of this award (I think he's an elitist, but that's my opinion); therefore, while I post the award button, I don't link back to him.

You, on the other hand, are very deserving of this award. Heartiest congratulations!!!

James Burnett makes me think that I used to be a whole lot smarter.

Thanks for the praise. You are invited to shoe shop with me anytime. Bring wine.

Congratulations Tiff, it's nice to know someone appreciates you!

I agree with Desert Songbird. When given this award by Pamela, I checked out his site and discovered that he was just trying to up his technocrati rating. However, this doesn't detract from and subsequent awards, particularly if you don't link back to him.

Pamela said...

I went back and checked him out too... and agree with WT
So, I didn't link him.

But I enjoyed saying derisive things about WT ha ha ha ha haa

I also nominated James. So, we thinking women are thinking alike.

matt-man - Spam earns a comment, but not my previous post. I'm hurt.

desert songbird - Thanks! Did NOT know about the dude. Now I have to think of something funny to change that link to...

mist1 - Holy crap, now I'm really honored! I'm all about shoes and wine...and shoes...and wine. I'm blushing.

WT - a total Neophyte mistake - glad you guys are looking out for me! I'm just GOT to think of a good "link" to link to...

Pamela - You're the third to mention this! The guy must be a real jerk - I'm definitely going to change the link ASAP! Thanks!

What? I don't get anything for having an affair?

piglet said...

Sound bloggers! What a treat. Seriously groovy.

Tiggerlane said...

matt - it's a THINKING BLOGGER award. You are not thinking with the right part of the body to qualify.

piglet - so many thanks to you for your kind words! And we do have to stick together.

marnie - Glad you enjoyed! Now I have to go check out your spring view.
