Flying Trilobite recommends...

I've been working a lot on some new pieces lately. I've finally got my studio space set-up so it's a joy to sit down to the work, instead of awkward.

These are some of my favourite places online recently. You'll find them at right in my sidebar. Everything in my links to the right there are places I enjoy or frequent; but the ones I'm highlighting today are ones I wanted to share with my blog-o-viewers (cue theremin).

The artwork and banter over at Leslie Hawes' blog is always a lot of fun. Great sense of community there. And, hey, print out a fairy & lion to colour!

I find myself checking out the antics of the slender protagonist at
xkcd more and more often. His equally slender girlfriend is a riot too.

For some pure quality writing in a grab-bag, never-know-what-you'll-find kind of way, click through to Unkie Herb. Great photos from his world travels as well.

If you feel like being all scientific & rational and have a fire in your belly, there's lots of entertaining ideas to rail against at Xenophilia. And Lego M.C. Escher!

And for the scientific, secularist parent, check out The Meming of Life. I love the writing found here.

If the weather is gettin' chilly, you need a Cambrian hoodie. Shop at Trilobite Clothing! Warm, fuzzy arthropods...

Alright, now back to that studio of mine...

Hi there! I just wanted to say thanks for plugging my blog over at Pharyngula, that warmed my heart. Also nice to discover I'm on your blogroll. You're not signed up with technorati are you? Otherwise I'd have seen that link sooner ;)

Hi Felicia! I only added you recently, but I've been reading your blog a bit over the last few weeks. May I say, I also like your aesthetic. It looks great.

Yeah, technorati is okay. It doesn't catch every blog link, but it does find ones I don't think I'd see otherwise.

If you are looking at services, blogflux is great; the mapstats are fascinating.

Thanks for dropping by my blog too!

Hi Glendon! Thanks for the nice things you had to say about the blog! Does this make our internet romance official? :)
I am going to peruse the suggested links that you have highlighted here.
I love to occasionally give props to the blogs I read, too. There is so much to see on the web, and it's nice to have stuff 'pointed out' for you.
With friends introducing friends, it's like one big blogtail party...

The M. C. Escher / Lego thing is a hoot!

xkcd! I can't believe I almost forgot that webcomic existed. Thanks for reminding me.

'Blogtail party'. That's awesome. Claim the url right now Leslie, you'll make millions. Oh hey, I'm that platonic friend guy, no romance talk 'kay?

You've got some reading to do David! xkcd has new cartoons, I dunno, at least twice a week. Great stuff. And Frozen Toothpaste's new look is nice, very clean.
