Around The Blogosphere 01 October 08

Geisha are professional female entertainers who perform traditional Japanese arts at banquets.

Girls who wish to become a geisha, must endure a rigid apprenticeship during which they learn various traditional arts such as playing instruments, singing, dancing, but also conversation and other social skills. In Kyoto, geisha apprentices are called "maiko". Guess who's BLOGGING? Geishas!

I never watch The Amazing Race: the two "goth" contestants are blogging.

The Albany Eye's fave rockers, Phish, is reuniting for three nights in Hampton, Va., in March 2009. More tour dates may be announced. The new album from Margot & the Nuclear So and So's is streaming on MySpace.

What are Hip Chicas??? Hispanic Tweens!

Predicto or how to get cell phone polling data from youth!

Bahraini blogger Cookie hates Eid: “I don’t feel Eid spirit anymore or let’s just say I have never felt Eid spirit they are talking about. Eid is all about love, kinship, forgiving and other lovely adjectives I don’t see, feel or hear in my Eids !.”
Have you heard the one about the OCEAN threatening to rip Africa apart?

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
