If you’ve got some time to kill this Easter weekend, why not spend a while perusing the Dabbler’s back pages. Here are some of the finest Dabbles of 2011 thus far from our regular contributors…
Brit and Worm took on celebrity chefs Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall respectively, while Gaw took a ramble around St Pancras Chuchyard and Nige admired a cup of water and a rose.
Jonathon ‘Mr Slang’ Green got drunk in his first ever post for The Dabbler and marvellous Mahlerman told us to just listen.
Frank Key welcomed us to the Dabblehub, while Noseybonk gave us an insight into the mind of Alain de Botton.
On the gluttony front, Jassy cooked up an aphrodisiac dinner and Ian Buxton introduced us to Glengoyne single malt whisky, now proud sponsors of our reviews and the ‘comment of the month’.
James Hamilton got into a scrap with the Edwardian football hooligans, Toby Ash discovered a quite remarkably odd museum and Barendina Smedley visited Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
Jon Hotten read some Filth, while Rosie Bell and Daniel Kalder examined the works of two literary giants: respectively, John Gross and Colonel Gadaffi.
Our most-visited post of the year thus far (apart from the Sarah Brown episode of Noseybonk, which was picked up by Guido Fawkes), thanks to the BBC’s ‘buzz’ and our astonishing Google-power, was ZMKC’s guide to cult Danish drama The Killing.
But perhaps our most important post (for who could now live without it?) was Susan’s style guide – highbrow to low – illustrated by The Spine.
Of course, this is but a hint of a taste of a sample of The Dabbler’s rich offerings, and doubtless you’ll have your own favourites.
Susan tomorrow and music on Sunday. Then on Easter Monday: the best guest Dabbles of 2011 so far; and a preview of we’ve got planned…
