Thrilling Thursdays: You Definitely Want to Be Here

For those who were following the blog in the spring or late winter, I’m sure you remember “No Politics Tuesday”.  For those that don’t remember/weren’t hear, let me catch you up.  Trust me, it’s not difficult:  Every Tuesday I took a break from discussing anything about politics and posted only entertainment stories, reviews, etc.  Well, after the television shows ended (though to be quite honest it started to crumble a little earlier) No Politics Tuesday kind of fizzled out.  Well, let me tell you right now, I’m bringing it back and this time it’s better than ever.

Everyone give “Thrilling Thursdays” a warm round of applause.  Woo!  Since most of the television shows I will recap air on Thursdays, I found it only fitting to switch the entertainment days around.  The new day for fun isn’t called “No Politics Thursday” because I make no promises the day will be devoid of political discussion.  In fact, I posted something about ACORN earlier today.  So Thrilling Thursdays will be a mixture, though mostly entertainment content.

Here’s the scoop on what Thrilling Thursdays will hold:

  • Recaps of “SNL Weekend Update Thursday”, “Parks and Recreation”, “The Office”, and “Fringe”.  These are live blogged, so I’ll be posting the recaps as they happen.
  • At least one music review or book review.
  • The Thrilling Thursdays TCJ Arena Smackdown.  This is going to be really fun.  Starting next week, I’ll be doing a contest exclusively for subscribers.  So if you haven’t signed up, read more about it here, or click here to fill out the registration form (all it takes is an e-mail address and your ready for action!).  The Smackdown isn’t going to be a giveaway, but an actual contest where you have to do something.  Don’t worry, there will be a good prize envolved.  Remember, these are exclusively for Deluxe Members.  Become one free by clicking here and reading the details!

That’s all for Thrilling Thursdays now.  The first full force Thrilling Thursday will take place next week, so make sure your here for the contest!  I’ll make an announcement on contest details next week.

TCJ Library Addition: “The Five People You Meet In Heaven” by Mitch Albom

I wanted to thank the reader that sent in a suggestion for me to read “The Five People You Meet In Heaven” and add it to the TCJ Library; it’s running low on books, I know.  I’m going to go buy it tomorrow or Monday and start reading and write a review when I finish.  From what I’ve read on the internet, it’s supposed to be really good.  Can’t wait to share with everyone my opinion of it!

Also, if you have a book or magazine suggestion you’d like to see added to the Library, please e-mail me at theconservativejournal@gmail.com or write a comment on the Library page.  As always, I’d love your suggestions!

The Conservative Journal Library: Must Read Books & Magazines

I am please to announce the newest branch of The Conservative Journal, The Conservative Journal Library!  This one’s going to be slowly built up, but will work similarly to the Top Sites feature.  After I read a good book, magazine, or other publication, I will write up a post about it and put it on the “library” page.  If you want to suggest a book that you have read, please send me an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com with the name of the book, or write your suggestion as a comment on the “Library” page.  I will then look at the book, read the reviews, and decide whether or not it’s library worthy.  If it makes the cut (it will, more than likely) I will add it the page then, and read the full book and write a review when I finish.

My hope for this feature is that it becomes a good resource for writers that are trying to get the word out on the books that they have self-published, or published online through sites like Lulu.  Tomorrow I will introduce the first book to the library, so be on the look out!

Remember, if you have any suggestions for books you have seen or have written, please send a message with the title and author of the book to theconservativejournal@gmail.com, or write the suggestion in a comment on the “Library” page.

Thanks for visiting!

Rick
