DARDOS Award, "I Love Your Blog" Award

"You like me! You really like me!"

The PREMIO DARDO is designed to recognize unique voices and visions on the Web as well as to promote fraternization amongst bloggers of all sorts.


I am shocked and amazed that my little stab at blogging, which started as nothing but a way to kill time at work, has become so much fun and been enjoyed by (in my mind) so many. Both Reis and Gilligan were kind enough to send a DARDO Award my way, and Samurai Frog gave me an "I Love Your Blog" award some time back (23-Nov). So, I have to pick some blogs. I follow so many that I hate narrowing things down, and I enjoy most all the blogs I follow, so I will try to be equitable in my choices. Here in no particular order (save how quickly they came to mind, or how recently I viewed them) are my choices. Maybe if you already have one, you don't have to award it twice?

PREMIO DARDOS

  1. Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and a link to his/her blog.

  2. Pass the award to another five blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgement, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.

  1. Love Train for the Tenebrous Empire — Lurid. Weird. Fantastique. A blog that lives up to its description. Kate does some really great posts, and her blog is very forum-like in the comment sections, which is part of what I enjoy.
  2. Moongem Comics — I am not much of a comic book reader, but I am a super hero fan. Jamdin does a lot of cool stuff on his blog. His month of Vampirella posts leading up to Halloween made my October a lot of fun, and his recent series of Women Wrestling Wednesday, which pits super heroines built in a video game wrestling program against each other. It is very cool.
  3. Outside the Interzone — Lockwood's Monday's Mineral & Friday's Fragments are always interesting. He has a lot of good photographs and fun insights.
  4. Trixies Treats — Trixie has some great art postings, and her blog just plain looks cool. She posts a lot of art be old standards like Frazetta, and then artists I have never heard of.
  5. House of Self-Indulgence — Yum-Yum has turned me on to a lot of great movies, and reminded me of some old favs. Where the time comes from to watch these movies and provide insightful reviews I do not know.


I Love Your Blog

In the spirit of spreading the word on other blogs, I decided to go with non-follower blogs here.
  1. ¡Historietas Perversas! — This blog is full of wild, wonderful Mexican adult comic cover scans.
  2. Undead Film Critic — a very popular blog with regular posts on horror, retro pinups, and humor.
  3. The Groovy Age of Horror — horror movies, comics, fumetti. A fun blog all around.
  4. Voluptuous Princess — Jamie VP is always nice and funny, and posts a lot. She's pretty well known on the adult side of the blogiverse.
