I have been sitting on reporting this best blog for a little while now (work, school, and such has kept me distracted) but now it is time to let it out of the box.
About a week and a half ago I was browsing around the tag surfer when I (happily) stumbled across Elle Effect. Lauren, the author, is an eighteen year old artist who not only gives us a glimpse into her artistic works but also into the thoughts and situations of her daily life.
What I quickly discoved is that this young girl possesses a mind able to delve into the deeper end of life through both the visual arts as well as the written word.
All this is why I consider Elle Effect a best blog.
Where do you go for information about a movie you can’t quite remember? Or maybe it’s a quirky music act from the 60s, an avant-garde art movement that never quite caught on? In other words, where do you go when the encyclopedia doesn’t help and Wikipedia’s oblivious?
If you’re like the Best Blog team, you surf over to Jahsonic: A Vocabulary of Culture. Sure, it’s about culture, but it’s anything but stuffy. A glance at the categories will tell you that. Yes, he covers Art and Architecture, but also Drugs, Eroticism, Fashion, Grotesque, and Horror, just to name a few.
With any luck, you’ll get lost hopping from link to link, following your instincts and enjoying one wild ride. Always entertaining and thought-provoking.
