Edmonton blog roundup: Oct. 13, 2014

Today I am thankful for all of the good reading that bloggers in Edmonton provide me every week. Here are some goodies for you:

imageKatt Adachi shares her passion for comics on Marvel Made Me Do It. She reviews purchases such as the above-pictured haul, and links to the podcast she co-hosts, too.  

Some musical notes:

On the subject of food:

  • On Eating is the Hard Part, Chris explores the fall menu at Earls
  • At Wine + Dine, Cheryl Cottrell-Smith warms up at Chili Hot Pot.
  • Elyse Chatterton turns to bacon butty to survive family chaos amid a challenge to reduce food waste.
  • Meanwhile, Jerry Aulenbach shifts from bacon to beard.

Regarding this place where we live:

  • On Spacing Edmonton, Paul Giang argues it’s not the entrance signs that are the problem — it’s the entrances themselves.
  • And his colleague Tom Young takes a look at West Edmonton Mall.
  • The Journal’s Elise Stolte tours Edmonton through the eyes of urban design consultant Sonny Tomic, via Twitter.
  • And her colleague Cailynn Klingbeil celebrates the power of small community projects.

And, miscellaneously:

  • Glenn Kubish sounds out what we’re talking about when we say something resonates.
  • Make Something Edmonton interviews Aaryn Flynn, studio general manager at BioWare.
  • Chad Huculak’s latest End of the Earth cartoon riffs on #yegwords and #yegtraffic.
  • Lowetide reminisces eloquently before setting up the new hockey season.
