moxiedoll -- Ambitious Outsider

moxiedoll (User #64952) watches movies, actually she specifically watches "documentaries about ambitious outsiders" When I first saw her blog, the top few reviewes were all about religion (1, 2, 3) making me wonder whether that was her theme (before I'd read the about page) but no, she also goes on to talk about Prince, Roman Polanski and this Herzog film I've been wanting to see.

Jeanne - Swarm of Beasts

Jeanne (User #1941) on MeFi is also Emily Horner, Brooklyn librarian, in real life. Her website, Swarm of Beasts is a straightforward YA book review site. She reads a lot, and she's frank. She states "The only thing I have is my own ornery and honest reactions." which is a decent explanation for the last sentence to her One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest review (also appearing on Goodreads which ends "It's hard to like a book that expects me to seriously believe that the world is ruled by an evil matriarchy. At that point it's hard for me to have any response other than 'Aaaaaaaargh.'"

Tim Walters -- doubtfulpalace

doubtfulpalace (User #82680) came to my attention via this great song in the music challenge. Apparently Tim has a holiday music web site up year round with holiday songs going back to 1993 as well as a roundup of other talented artists.
