Science Based Pharmacy, by Scott Gavura, a contributor to Science Based Medicine. A fine addition to your quack-proofing arsenal.

The Vulgar Chef. Just what it says on the can. Fucking awesome.

Rough and Regie. La Cieca James Jorden’s opera blog on Musical America. Infrequently updated but still very worth reading.

Tim Blair. Because I’d still be ignorant about Australian politics without him,

Not running yet but you can check out the main page: Apollonysius’ The Dirty Stuff.  Sexy stuff gonna happen there. (I have been asked to contribute.)

    If you’ve been getting lessons from Murdoch sock puppets like Tim Blair you now know less than nothing about Australian politics.
    Seriously, that guy has been caught out lying more often than Janet Albrechtson. Nearly as often as Andrew Bolt.
    Not that Fairfax or the ABC are any more honest. They’re just a tad more careful in the construction of their lies.

    Maybe there’s some sort of curse in the partial anagram of the surname.
    Tim, Tony, Jayson – they all seem to have a severe case of the same affliction.

    Thanks for the link to ‘Science Based Pharmacy’.
    It’s now on my follow list.

    Can you give me some examples of the lies he’s been caught in?
    Just because someone works for an organization with a leader you find distasteful doesn’t necessarily make you a sock puppet. Are the tens of thousands of public servants in my city sock puppets for Tony Abbott?
    Also: Tim Blair was very kind to me when I first arrived in Australia. He let me stay overnight in his spare room once. and took me and my future husband out drinking.
    Also: he’s funny.
    Also: I usually agree with him.

Tell me.
