Recognition is Always Nice
“The Dardos Award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.”
I was awarded this very flattering award by my friend Taliesin of Taliesin Meets the Vampires (the greatest blog on all things vampire - full stop). I humbly accept this award and in the spirit it was given pass it on to some bloggers (some of whom may already have this award) who have made a constant and steady difference in my life. One is requested to pass on this award to five people who you feel embody the nature and spirit of this award. As such, to my friends:
Gilligan - who always leaves me a thought provoking comment or word of thanks and whose Retrospace is very often the highlight of a given day
Bill - my amigo in China whose Uranium Cafe always spellbinds. His new podcasts are even more illuminating - please keep them coming! Bill is the older brother I once had.
Ed - a good personal friend whose blog, though still young, is flourishing at a steady clip and providing me with a great deal of expertise on all things Hong Kong. Find him at Teresa Mak & Other Hong Kong Actresses
Erik - Another good personal friend and comrade in arms in our never ending doctoral endeavors. You can read all about Erik's Memorable Fancies
And lastly, to Joe - who inspired me to set up this blog in the first place. Joe, like yours truly, does not post as often as he would like, but when he is inspired to do so - you should take note. Joe, like his blog title, is Always Returning to my blog with many kind things to say.
There are many more of you (you know who you are) who I would like to share this with - and in fact I DO. These are just a few shout outs that I felt needed mentioning...
Cheers and thanks for reading my crap.
