Back on October 3 New York waterblogger Brian Luster came up to visit Gloucester with his dad Marty.
Here’s what has transpired since-
I’ve had the pleasure to hang out with Brian Luster and his dad Marty from A Moveable Bridge. We went to breakfast yesterday and got to talk blogging and boats and breakfast and food and all kinds of other good stuff like the difference between “partners” and girlfriends and how some people call their long time girlfriends partners even though they’re not gay.
I discovered Brian’s blog last year after Schooner Festival when I had done an interview with some of the crew members on the Lettie G Howard. There are a group of bloggers from New York who are a pretty incestuous group. They all post on each other’s blogs and have similar interests. (sort of the way I comment on Jay, Kathleen and Steve B’s blogs)
Well here are some of the New York Waterfront Bloggers blogs that I think you ought to know about because they post some pretty interesting stuff that is similar to what we’re doing up here in Gloucester. I normally wouldn’t give these fucking New York people the time of day (especially given their propensity to root for the Yankees, Jets and Giants). But since I’ve met Brian and Marty and they seem like regular folk just like us I’ll give ‘em a pass on the whole Evil Empire thing.
I’m hoping Brian can organize a field trip of sorts with these New York waterfront bloggers for next year’s Schooner Festival so I can get to meet them and host them for a Beer and Blog event.
Check out these blogs if you get a chance, if you like what we do here on GMG you ought to dig the New York versions too (even if they are FUCKING NEW YORKERS).
