blogs that make me go hmmm...

in the spirit of tagging, the thinking blogger has been passing on awards again for blogs that make us think and i'm quite flattered to say that i've been awarded one from dearest jade pegler at spectrescope.

last time i got tagged, i botched it 'cos i didn't really know many other bloggers, but now, my bookmarks list (i don't have de.licio.us) is fucking massive and i wanna give props to some of my crew. sound like a toss? yeah, i thought so too.. ha!

so, in my designer dress I'd like to announce the top 5 nominees for the thinking blogger are:

1. rob campbell from rob@cynic. opinionated and super intelligent sod. totally great guy. planning head honcho at cynic and loving partner to andy and george, the other cynic bigwigs. his blog is solely responsible for some serious thinking on my part and making some really great friends.

2. age conte from in my atmosphere. great (former) copywriter, currentabout to be former junior planner and saviour for SEE life differently. great blogger about a variety of life bits and pieces. all-round nice guy who is solely disproving the theory that they finish last.

3.andrew hovells from northern planner. another all-round nice guy who has fantastic insight about a range of stuff. he also suggests great recipes and is not afraid to sit down and have a nice cup of tea.

4.paul colman from life in the middle. yet another nice guy (although we've not met), planning type with the most deadpan sense of humour i've ever read. the variety of general and personal observations 'from the middle' has this blog high on my list of 'must check before i do anything else'.

5. ben terrett from noisy decent graphics. design god from The Design Conspiracy. Willingly suffers from the design disease and has a great eye for good form, great colour and fun stuff to do.

guys (and sadly for thinking women, these are all guys), if you're going to continue nominating, there are rules for nominating thinking blogs, so check them out before you blog your nominations.

and just so you know, there are loads of other boys and girls whose blogs make me think and if you aren't on this list, i promise that it's not because i don't love you. it's just that i had to choose 5 and, well, that means leaving people behind.

Awwwww shucks!


lol @ saviour of SEE Life Differently. I failed Lauren, I failed.

We're soon to be known as another name completely as the ink dries on the merger with the company that runs mobile phone voting for Big Brother and Australian Idol and also produces Quiz Mania (annoying phone in midnight game show check local listings for times).


I am going to be working strategy for Quiz Mania. Rob, taking on any juniors?

hehehe... joking, but kinda not. Are you?

Ah shucks.

*Feeling unloved*.

What nice things you say Lauren, thank you.

At 28 May, 2007 15:49, Blogger lauren said...

oh no!! age!!! that is fucking awful! what the fuck is wrong with the world when shit like that happens? comiserations mate and here's hoping you find good times, soon.

will - please read the last part of my post - i'm sorry, but i had to choose 5 and that means that you, my best friend and russell davies missed out. at least you're in good company, if that makes you feel any better.

paul - right back at ya.

At 28 May, 2007 17:49, Blogger Jade said...

yeah Will, don't feel too badly. After all, if everyone does what they're sposed to, before too long (less than 9 rounds of awards now) there will be 244,140,625 bloggers awarded. And there's not even two hundred million blogs, apparently. Certainly not thinking ones. So you're bound to get your turn soon.

At 28 May, 2007 18:53, Blogger Will said...

Ah, all very much tongue in cheek, don't you worry.

I've tried not to link/get feeds from too many blogs for this very reason - not enough hours in the day to read them all.

What a swearing sweetie ... thanks Lauren, but given I once got 2% in a maths exam and failed all my O Levels on my first attempt [who needs to revise when you're going to be a Rock God!] I don't think the word intelligent should be used in accordance with my name!

Age ... on the bright side, you will find out more about human motivations than almost any other research company, on the downside, you won't be able to enter any of the competitions to win! We've got places in our NYC office but not Sydney I'm afraid - but don't worry, you're on the DD list and I still think a merger doesn't mean a disaster - see how it goes and let me know how you feel.

You're very nice. Thanks for reminding me I haven't posted about tea for a while.
Age that sucks, hope it all turns out alright.

Not 100% sure that I'm a design god (although now you mention it, you've got me thinking...)

100% sure that Paul isn't "another nice guy". He uses his deadpan humour to make him sound nicer.

At 29 May, 2007 23:04, Blogger lauren said...

ben, i've been known to get things wrong before, so if it turns out you're not a design god, and paul is a right arsehole i'm happy to strike through.

but for now, i'm leavin' it - hope you don't mind. ha!!
