A red light over my head

Red_light Is Blogging Harder Than Writing A Book?

…I write the sports blog Deadspin.com, assembling more than 25 posts a day meant to enlighten, amuse and distract sports fans from the drudgery of their desk jobs. Every day, I write about 7,000 words; this means that every three weeks, I write the equivalent of an extremely long book. Sure, this book would be unreadable, and reviewers would certainly point out that none of the links went anywhere, but the word count would hold.

Recently, I wrote a real book, with words and pictures and a cover that will hurt you if you are struck across the head with it. It's an entirely separate enterprise from blogging, and not just because, when I finished a page, I didn't have people named CaptainCaveman and sexydogg1983 calling me an idiot. I wrote it in five months without taking a day off from the site….

Worth spreading -

Radakovich Every blog has some corners where independent lives develop. Sometimes readers take over posts, and build them into unusual, unpredictable creatures.

Grow-a-brain being simply a link blog generates only few comments & very seldom any heated debate. 3 years ago I posted a link to the Indian movie star Aishwarya Rai that called her “The world's most beautiful woman”, and that post (with over 150 comments) keeps bringing fans & foes to argue over this point.

Another post that mentioned Warren Buffett, the world's second-richest man brought dozens of indigent people in financial difficulties to request donations from “humble” Buffett to complete their MBA studies, for operations, or just to survive.

The most recent spat occurred in a post that mentioned a guy named Stevan Thomas Radakovich, who restores vintage stoves. Apparently, his restoration work used to be fabulous, when he was featured in this Los Angeles Times story, and his stoves were used & credited on The Food Channel’s Rachael Ray productions, etc.

But by the time I linked to his beautiful website here (The site had since been taken down), things were not going so well, and it seems that there were many customers of his, who ordered & paid for these expensive vintage stoves, and never received them.

So they formed a posse & started using that blog post as a chatroom, gathering information among themselves, forming a community to seek restitution & exposure to their losses.

It’s an interesting read. It involves the Kansas Attorney General, the Wichita BBB, the local paper, and more. I just read it like everybody else. Scroll down to read over 100 250 angry comments there.

Made in Hong Kong

 Made_in_hong_kong LA6NCA's WW2 German Radio Collection Pictures. (From Endless Parade of Excellence)

Generally, radios made in Hong Kong between 1964 till the late 60's lacked all the style and color that made Japanese radios so popular and collectable. Today, these radios do not fetch big money on the collector's market. Generally, I will not pay more than $5 or $10 for one.

Michael Jack is a transistor radio collector who uploaded some of his 900 radios into flickr
