local blog rundown

Wow! There's a lot going on in local blogs these days! The Barnseyard is still blowing up. DB is so prolific and everything is stellar! If you only have time for one thing, read the dare daniel about Malibu's Most Wanted. Hilarious. And teeni clanger went to Ma Jong's and regrets it. She didn't write a full review, but I guess it made her sick. She also linked to an article on JT Leroy possibly being a hoax that I want to read. I suspected that when I read his books. They were just too crazy.

How about some links?

Niki's kinda secretive about her blog, so I'll just print the link to the jt leroy article, and she can link to her blog if she wants

I read the whole article, and though it was really, really, long, it was rather interesting.

I've known people kind of like that who more or less over-inflate situations and even flat out lie, are megalomaniacal, but extremely socially awkward. Sometimes it seems like shyness, but turns out not to be, but sometimes they just seem like constant jerks.

The article more or less has me convinced that JT LeRoy is not who he/she says he/she is and that very few of the situations surrounding his/her past ever happened, or did not happen in the way that he/she said they did.

I've read something about him before that basically said as much, but wasn't as interesting. I like the idea of a "good con," and I wonder if that was the intention of whoever is using the JT Leroy moniker.

Oh, but CAN you read only one post? Do you have the willpower to stop at one? That's the Barnesyard challenge (note: please do not take this challenge).
