Here's a new one. Nomi Malone gave me an award. Who woulda even thought she was in the blogosphere? And if you just happen not to know who Nomi Malone is, check out the video below.
Actually, Malone comes in the guise of blogger Micael Chadwick. While I don't know how I stumbled across his blog The Journey, all I can say is that I did. And I'm glad. Why? Because it's probably the most brutally honest blog that I read - pound for pound. He's feral, open, honest, angry, happy, sad... A jambalaya of creation. Poems. Musings. Rants. Screeds. And it all bleeds onto the screen.
I urge one and all to check it out. He's also a damn talented designer (I love how his template changes from day to day).
Here's the skinny in his own words: "I quit trying to force some semblance of rhyme or reason to it and just decided to blog whatever wants blogged. It's much more freeing. It also is beginning to serve as a reflection of living with AIDS. It will be interesting to look back and see where I was at each step of the process... Already the narrative is fascinatingly varied from post to post."
"There will be no guarantees along Theg Journey. I am over trying to blog - I am just blogging. Don't expect much - but watch for everything. (Couch Dress anyone?) It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will probably piss you off. It's quirky and serious and sometimes both, all at the same time and smattered into a big ol' wad of what-the-heck-just-happened. (And I tend to curse too much. I'm workin' on it...)"
He's the real deal. Check it out HERE.
