Around The Blogosphere 22 October 08

Steve Adubato blogs "Those who think she's not qualified to be Vice President or President are likely not to change their minds about her, because of her "work" on Saturday Night Live. But Sarah Palin is now firmly in place as an American celebrity. She's got "It", whatever that exactly is."

Today's faves: Cuban Travel, Conspiracy Theories, and Sexism

From Kuwait, Ginaview writes about how different guys react when they are rejected by women. Her advice: " smart and remember if he is of anything he’d be taken by now..."

Miss Info: In her post entitled The BET Hip Hop Awards….where fashion goes to die? Min quips: "I tried to adjust the color-balance on my computer screen….but T-Pain still looked nuclear. Those butter-bling teeth…need a rawhide chew toy. And yes, I’m going to continue to ignore Soulja Boy’s horrifying wrist signals the same way I never acknowledged Cam’s earring situation. I have that will to survive."

Adult Swim has posted a free album called African Swim. It spotlights South Africa's best hip-hop artists and is downloadable now with video.

John Hogue emailed me he's finally written and produced that long awaited book on Nostradamus' Antichrist (Mabus) prophecies: NOSTRADAMUS and the Antichrist, Code Named MABUS

John contacted me as a result of a comment I left on his website:

A little comment goes a long way :)

via Global Voices: Some may tend to consider piracy something related to copying copyrighted media or perhaps a long-gone lifestyle to be celebrated in "Talk Like a Pirate day". In some countries, however, piracy and protection out on sea is a serious and current matter. On today's videos, the World Food Program hires bodyguards to look over their cargo ships as they sail to Somalia to deliver food, and vloggers from Korea and United Arab Emirates speak about piracy in the modern day world.

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.

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.
