About Eric Olsen

  • http://paperfrigate.blogspot.com DrPat

    Thanks for compiling this – BlogCritics annual feature?

  • Eric Olsen

    thanks DP, henceforth I would presume

  • http://selfaudit.blogspot.com Aaman

    Culture is leading (3 posts) in the Foolish sweepstakes

  • http://www.gamestay.com Dave

    If you’re compiling April Fool’s jokes, here’s one. Though it is plausible:

    Sony announced today that they’re releasing a clip-on ultrathin DVD player for your Playstation Portable. Priced at $89.99, the DVD into PSP (DiP) lacks its own screen and, alas, won’t connect to your TV set. (Bet someone hacks a way to do this in about 10 minutes!) But, thanks to the PSP’s USB hookup, it will permit you to watch your DVD collection on the go.

    More at http://www.gamestay.com, including a picture.

  • Eric Olsen

    truth is stranger than fiction

  • http://paperfrigate.blogspot.com DrPat

    Culture is still edging ahead at 6, but Music at 4 is not far behind. Books and Video share last place with 2 each.

    Chris Beaumont gets the prize (so far) for most sub-categories, though.

    Culture is a funny thing

  • Eric Olsen

    Chris is notorious for his subcat promiscuity
