    Big Apple Blog Festival (BABF)

    Welcome to the Big Apple Blog Festival (BABF), a representative roundup of this week's posts by NYC bloggers.

    The Big Apple Blog Festival likes to go on tour, and different blogs host it ... if you have a NYC blog or you blog about NYC and would like to host an upcoming BABF, let us know ... The next BABF, on January 23, 2006, will be hosted by A Guy In New York ...

    This week's Big Apple Blog Festival is hosted by Harleys, Cars, Girls & Guitars.

    Some excerpts:

    • Why do we fear Friday the 13th? Suitably Flip has the answer.

    • My colleague in multimedia, nyc stories, announces a two week theater festival based on the life and works of Edgar Allen Poe.

    • Living the Scientific Life has been nominated for “Biggest Blog Whore.” Vote once every 24 hours.

    • The Tin Man wants to impeach President Bush. “The wiretapping is the last straw.” Ain’t gonna happen. One of the delights of performing my turn as host of this blogfest is that I get to surf so many sights with pictures of men in their tighty whiteys sharing a kiss. You don’t see that at Harley shows.

    • Ace of Spades suggests that the way to influence the Muslim world is to pay “… millions of dollars to get broadband internet there and all the free porn we can.” He also reports on the threat that a radical Muslim Iman perceives in the dancing of John Travolta.

    This week's Big Apple Blog Festival is hosted by Harleys, Cars, Girls & Guitars.

    Some excerpts:

    • Living the Scientific Life discovers that beekeeping is popular in New York City. Right in Hell's Kitchen, honey is being produced!
    • Over in Jersey, Mr. Snitch! says: "Human-to-human avian flu variant reported."
    • nyc stories covers the movie version of the play, "Rent." A word of advice: Stick with the play. The blogger behind nyc stories, and the blogger behind Harleys, Cars, Girls & Guitars just completed a week of corporate video shooting. Results to be released at a trade show in Las Vegas in January.
    • To continue the movie theme, Michael Blowhard discusses his conflicting feelings about “The Passenger” by Michelangelo Antonioni. Can somebody explain to me why 2Blowhards features five blowhards?

    Last week's Big Apple Blog Festival was hosted by A Guy In New York.

    This week's Big Apple Blog Festival is hosted by mister snitch!.

    Some excerpts:

    • The 'old' old-media relationship with bloggers: Bash 'em. The NY Times latest swipe at bloggers, bashing Gawker, gets a closer look and yields this insight. (Amy's New York Notebook) (See also: Does the New York Times have a learning disability?) (PressThink)
    • Kissy face. Uberblogger Glenn thinks Karol is cute. Karol wants to 'fix' that. Please send Karol some advice on becoming a blogger femme fatale. (P.S.: Dawn Summers hates her.)
    • Pissy face. Everything you need to know about blogging can be summed up by this cartoon.

    For much more, see this week's BABF for more.

    Next week's BABF will be hosted by A Guy In New York.

    Big Apple Blog Festival - November 7, 2005

    Big Apple Blog Festival (BABF)

    Last week's Big Apple Blog Festival was hosted by spinachdip nyc.

    This week's Big Apple Blog Festival is hosted Dave Friedman's Soul of Wit.

    Some excerpts:

    • Chad at Cake or Death reminds us that Greenpeace is sometimes its own worst enemy. Also check out his quote from Eisenhower: ""History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." I'm no fan of Eisenhower, though there is something to that quote that strikes me as true.
    • Mr. Snitch notes how Apple's new OS, which can be run on Pentium-based PCs, is creating a base of very cheap, very powerful computers that threatens the status quo in the PC market.
    • LawHawk informs the debate surrounding the rebuilding of Ground Zero:
        If there is any need greater than the rebuilding of Ground Zero, I'd like to hear it from the Mayor or anyone else. Bloomberg is yanking Silverstein's chain around for no reason other than because he can.

    See this week's BABF for more.

    Next week's BABF will be hosted by A Guy In New York.

    Big Apple Blog Festival - October 17, 2005

    Big Apple Blog Festival (BABF)

    This week's Big Apple Blog Festival is hosted by Englishman in New York. Some samples follow:


    Welcome to the first EiNY-hosted Big Apple Blog Festival -- a round-up of the best New York bloggers had to offer during the wettest week in 102 years when broken $3 umbrellas clogged city sewer gates. A dark, damp seven days during which:

    Tessa at NYC Metblogs got mugged by a Fresh Direct [food] delivery man.

    Yanks fan and Sox fan provide a list of excuses after their dismal showing.

    Baby frustration spilled over in the messageboards at Dailyslope. "It all started innocently enough, with Carnivore suggesting that aggressive baby-pushers install "cow catchers" on the front of their monster-strollers before they begin plowing down 7th Avenue [in Brooklyn]."

    See this week's BABF for much more.

    Next week's BABF will be hosted by mister snitch!
