Weblogging Pioneer, Filmmaker, All-Around Great Guy

I just had a lengthy and very enjoyable phone conversation with Brian Linse of AintNoBadDude.

For those out of the loop on the history of political blogging, Linse was one of the first liberal bloggers to make a name for himself -- not only in his own right, but through his adept responses to some of the most blatantly partisan and dishonest of weblogging coming from the right.

Despite living in the greater Los Angeles area, an almost automatic handicap, Linse is an all-around great guy, and, better yet, a filmmaker who likes my latest script idea.

Hey, for a starving, or near-starving writer like myself, it doesn't get much better than that.

Now, how do I get invited to one of Linse's blogger parties -- with someone paying my way from Philadelphia?
