Best Blogger Alive



The inaugural “Best Blogger Alive” award goes to Ta-Nehisi Coates. Mostly due to this post here. Because, let’s face it, I’m a huge nerd. Like seriously. I really want to learn how to play D&D, I’m in the process of creating a RPG-like point system for my workout schedulesd1, and I taught myself HTML because I was bored. Yet, the last time I checked I was very much a part of the African Diaspora.

Other stellar posts from BBA Coates include his take on Isaac Hayes, Punditry in America, and brilliant, brilliant posts on hip-hop culture. Also, the fact that we pretty much had the same path toward blogging. Though there is a good chance he was a better poet and MC. Because we all know he’s a much, much better blogger.

  1. What we need first are the categories: STR, AGI, CON, LAZ and so on. After we do that it’ll be easy. But you know this will eventually turn into a Norton RPG with a BAC category. And I’m strangely comfortable with that.

  2. Sooner or later, we all became what Bizzo wanted us to become.

    Which was apparently “huge Atlantic Monthly fanboys.”

  3. I’m assuming AGI is agility, but that won’t be easy to quantify, and probably more difficult to level up.

    What’s LAZ?
