Follow Friday #2: Comic Strips and Music!

On Follow Friday this week:
1. Introduction
2. Podcast: Best of MySpace
3. Twitter: Comic Strips
4. Blog: Michael Fry
5. Next Week/Drop Me a Line.

I thought I’d try to pick up on Follow Friday again, since I’ve been trying to pick up on Music Monday – and let’s face it, I could use something steady to keep up the blog. And not to worry, I’ll try to simplify it a bit so I won’t give away as much info/take so much confusing space as I did on the first Follow Friday.

Since the last time we spoke, I have finished listening to all of the podcasts of De Sorte Spejdere – so although I might just be thrown into fits of laughter once more if listening to them again, there is nothing new – only repeats. So I have been jumping the internet source of my podcast software – plus re-visiting DR.dk to download the podcasts of a few more programs after listening to the radio. I have also been adding a few individuals to my list on Twitter. Hopefully you’ll like the ones I picked!

The podcast I would like to introduce to you is Best of MySpace, a show made as a podcast by iCast and hosted by Gill Mills.
It’s made to make the way through the MySpace jungle easier to get through, as you don’t have to stop and smell all the flowers on the way. Gill has, with the help of the listeners, picked the most colorful and less smelly of them for you (which does ends up, as she admits, as a very subjective list of artists and songs – but what the heck, so do my Follow Fridays and Music Mondays).
As a last note, I might add that this podcast might speak more to the rockfans in the audience – although she does throw in a bit of hip-hop and R’n’B now and then – but give it a chance anyway. You may be surprised.

(And no, I can’t promise I won’t be using this podcast as a part of Music Monday in the future! But let me just get properly into it, and then see.)

In the Twitterverse, I have come across Hammy the Squirrel (@Hammyhimself). You probably remember him from Over the Hedge (there’s a Hammys through History-thing going on right now – you can go subscribe to Over the Hedge as a daily comic). “Hammy” sends out cute, funny, and at times philosophical statements – like one of my favorites so far:

Today is the the beginning of the ending of the start of the finish of the opening of the closing of forgetting what I was remembering.

“Over the Hedge” is made by Michael Fry, who I’m also following on Twitter (@_MichaelFry) where he is sending out comments and updates on blogposts, and T Lewis.

Plus, of course, the two of them have a tendency to retweet each other.

The blog I’m mentioning today is actually that very blog of Michael Fry. The blogposts with the Over the Hedge-strips aside, I remember one specific blogpost in particular – How to Lose Weight – where he describes the Mike Fry diet and concludes:

Eat less. Exercise more. Listen to your wife. Savor your treats.

It should only take another ten years to lose the other twenty pounds.

I have no idea what will come up next week. Yet again, I can imagine it having something to do with music, languages, and travelling. Maybe even photography. I have no idea!
