Sadly, the month of lists is almost over, but the Marmaduke movie keeps getting closer, to the joy of many.
With one of the last lists of the month, I wanted to take a look at my favorite blog on the Internet. My own. A few months ago, I migrated Dance With Sunflowers from blogspot over to The Chaos Factory. This list looks back at the best Dance With Sunflowers posts from before the move. Some of the formatting in these old posts is out of whack, but the insights are just as insightful as ever.

#5 Conscientious Objector
Why You Should Read It: This was my very first blog entry. I don’t know what possessed me to start writing a blog, but I knew that it could not be random reflections on my day to day life. Instead, it is random reflections about the world at large.
#4 The Most Preposterous Pleasurable Pop
Why You Should Read It: It was the very first list, ever.
#3 Francis Bacon And The Sorceror’s Stone
Why You Should Read It: One of my all time favorite posts, representing everything this blog is about, especially the blending together of serious intellectual reflection with the absurd.
Why You Should Read It: Because it was incredibly prescient. Just after the election, well before Obama was inaugurated, I wrote the following: “I think people will find that a lot less change will occur than they were hoping for. Obama is a Democrat, and as long as America embraces this two party system, our government will be controlled by a cabal of big business and special interests, with a slight drift from right to left depending on which party is in power. The erosion of our individual rights will continue, and more power and wealth will congregate in fewer hands.” Let’s just say that anyone who is disappointed that Obama has not been progressive enough should have seen it coming.
#1 Vegan Time Traveling
Why You Should Read It: Because it’s the only ethical way to travel through time.
