About Me

Also known as Joseph Dunphy. Long term unemployed courtesy, in large part, of a management fad, getting around and enjoying life as well as possible, on an unreasonably limited budget. Will be reviewing inexpensive restaurants, most of them in Chicago, thrift stores, going to festivals (while trying not to think about the line "bread and circuses" too much), and taking a lot of photos.

Tolerate consumer advocacy as a subject, have enough sense to see real value in it, but never have much fun writing about it. More interested in the arts and sciences, so expect to hear about museums more than you would expect, and art fairs and theatrical events until long after you beg me to stop.

I will be posting short fiction and observational pieces.

Basic Navigational Links

Main Blog / Typepad - A local review centered blog that my activity on these sites is centered on/

Main Blog / Posterous - Another copy of the last blog, hosted on a different server.

Blog Homepage / Webring Webspace - General information and evergreen content.

Blog Homepage / Mirrors - The same general information and the same evergreen content, available on two other servers, in case Webring is down.

Return to Your Ring - If this link, through which you would return to your ring via Typepad isn't working, there are alternative routes of return to your ring through Posterous, Tribe, Blogger, Scriptmania and At least one of those should work for you.

Comment and Companion Journals

Burn Unit - Tumblr commentary and future location of comments about products

Tumblr Commentary - Not the same as Burn Unit. Talking about places instead of products, and comparing notes about them with other bloggers.

Wordpress Commentary - Posting about blogs I've found on of relevance to the readers of my main blog

Livejournal Remarks - Same idea, different provider. I'll write about something on my main blog, find people on Livejournal who've written about similar topics, and talk about what they wrote.

Blogger Notes - And yet another provider. Having found people who've written about these topics, sometimes I'll post comments to their blogs, and then later talk about the discussions I got into, as a result. Thus the expression "comment blog", which you see used as a label on this list.

My Multiply Journal
My Tribe Journal
My Orkut Journal


Peerscribe - My page on a social networking site for writers. Will have short fiction and observational pieces.


Shoestring - My events on Upcoming, and comments about them

Wallflower - Real time photography, as soon as I'm set up for it. I'll be taking digital photos and remotely uploading them on the spot, so you can see what I'm seeing as I see it.
