#9 - High-Five Fridays

My Ninth High-Five Friday...

#5: Sandy Carlson at Writing in Faith

Easily one of the most prolific "commenters" in the blogsphere... and a prolific blogger as well! Ms. Carlson has done some wonderful and thought provoking posts... and is a genuine light on these here series of tubes we know as the interwebs! Sandy Carlson deserves a high-five just for being Sandy Carlson! She's one of the best!

#4: Andy at The Spicy Cauldron for this post (click here) about something we can do to PERHAPS send a message...

Sorry, I won't be watching the Olympics this year which ad revenue people might notice if enough of us say something. As much as I know it hurts the athletes, I cannot and will not support this.

#3: "He Who Cannot Be Named" again!

Okay, for those not in the know, when I mention "He Who's Name is Anathema to Hits", my hits go down about ten percent from normal. I honestly don't know why... but okay...

Anyway, Mr. You Know Who has a podcast, and showing he had a pair of stones bigger than all outdoors, the nervy bugger invited a rather questionable right-wing ardent Christian on the show... who's only eighteen. Now, Mr. Can't Be Named Here is not known for being too "Godly"... in fact, spoofing Jesus in various ways is a thing for him... and his audience is not exactly the kind that would warm Pat Roberston's heart. Anyway, things got ugly... and Mr. Stones Kinda Shrunk tried to keep it happy (EPIC FAIL) but I have to "High Five" him anyway for at least having the gumption to give this girl an outlet...

#2: Kyra at The Kyra Sutra

In relationship to my #3 above, this is Kyra who "got into it" a little with the person on "He Who Cannot Be Named's" podcast... and read this post (click here) to find out why I have a TONNE of respect for this lady! Bigtime High Five!

#1: Christie St.Martin's New Blog in the LA Times!

How cool is this gig? Toronto-girl and admitted geek, Christie St.Martin's blog, "Exhusticated", was a favourite stop of mine... she mined articles and "the funny" and I often shared links with others... it was like having a cool filter through Fark and a bunch of forums! Now she's blogging for the LA Times! HIGH-FIVE for Christie!

Find out how to give your High-Five Fridays here!

The purpose of this meme is to give high-fives to 5 people, posts, blogs and/or websites you've admired during the week. I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 5 high-fives on Friday. Trackbacks, pings, linky widgets, comment links accepted!

Visiting fellow High-Fivers is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your High-Fives in others comments (please note if NSFW - Not Safe for Work).

Hey High-Fivers... I pride myself on commenting back to anyone who comments on this here blog... but I've made a wee decision based on laziness and time... and that is, if you're going to post up in the comments two (or more) URLs for HFF sites, I will read them all (honest!) but probably comment on only one.

Just FYI...

Funny movie for the world poker crown

Okay, this could be disturbing... or funny depending on your point of view...

The above video is from some folks doing poker tournaments ... which, indeed, require a good poker face... although hacking off one's finger should be cause for some facial contortions in my eyes.

The video is a promotion for the world poker crown being run via which culminates in a $3 million guaranteed poker tournament... While it's going to be a "mostly online" tourney (in which case, your poker face doesn't need to be all that great,) the final eight players online will "play off" at a casino in a televised event... which culminates in the "big prize" which anyone can take... The World Poker Crown Final Event being played at Perlada Castle in Barcelona, Spain... between May 6th to May 10th! is offering a chance to win a seat at the WPC competition worth well over $1,000.00... this includes two seats at the competition, two flights to Spain, a welcome party in a yacht in Peralada Harbour, three nights stay in the five star Peralada Hotel, and full hospitality at the organized events! All in all, it sounds like a heck of a time for you and a special friend!

...but is it worth losing a finger?

...maybe... :)

Check it out!
