Blog #364: Acknowledgments: The Blog

I was trying to figure out how to finish this guy on the train one day and I saw in the book I was reading the Acknowledgments section. Of course. The number of people I need to thank is countless, but I wanted to at least let a few of them know that I’m eternally grateful.

Thanks to everyone for sticking with me through this. One day left.

4/9/2010 – Making Sense of the Millennium Falcon’s Kessel Run

Blog #363: Making Sense of the Millennium Falcon’s Kessel Run

Okay, so before I began the Year of the Blog I wanted to start a blog called The Cosmological Principles which was a blog about cosmology and problems in Astronomy, but written by a self-righteous jerk. Instead I’ve made a few blogs by [Dr.] Dru Johnston, essentially the same character, for this project. And I’m writing another one by him.

But this one is very very extensive. I’ve wanted to make this blog for the last year, but it was such a Moby Dick for me in that it was something I wanted to make sure was as extensive as I could. But with three blogs left, I figured I HAD to do it today.

This is based off of my final project for Astro 110 at Whitman, I presented this information the week before I graduated, probably with a more serious attitude than I used when writing my paper on Henry James for English… that’s how much I love this question about the Millennium Falcon.

So read and either get very confused or completely nerded out. But probably start at the bottom and work your way up… it’s a lot easier to follow that way.

Blog #362: Reconciling with that Asshole Blogger

Andy Jones, chief rival to the Year of the Blog and creator of his own year long blog project The Original Year of the Blog, is back with a vengeance. But this time only after I called him up and explained to him that I was about to be done with the project and we should probably put our differences aside. Here is his blog answer.

Blog #361: Why I Refuse To Make A Blog About Ohio

I’ve had a lot of people (read: two) come up to me and say: “Hey Dru. You say you’re going to make a blog about every state in the union except Ohio. What’s your beef with Ohio man? C’mon what’s up with that? Why aren’t you going to make a blog about Ohio?” Well, in order to answer that question I’ve made a blog about it.

Blog #359: Flat Stanley Adventure! Blogger Edition

Well… there’s exactly one week left… so I thought I’d bring back my good friend Ryan for one more blog because I enjoy these Flat Stanley blogs a lot. Also, I’ve been reading Kurt Vonnegut recently and as you will see this blog is pretty heavily influenced by that. Time to start closing up some loose ends guys!

Blog #356: Graphing Roger Ebert’s Tweets

Roger Ebert ( @ebertchicago ) seems to tweet more than any human being can. It’s insanely impressive… borderline immortal God like. But with all that tweeting, when the hell does he sleep?! I make a few charts, graphs and analysis of a single day in Ebert’s twitter history. March 31st, 2010. It’s even more insane than I thought it was…
