The Superblog is Born
Just when you thought you had enough physics blogs to keep you busy during the (short, of course!) time that occurs between productive thinking, along comes another one: Cosmic Variance. This is no ordinary blog though, this is the superblog. Just like musicians who take leave from their groups and form a supergroup, these physicists, amongst them the owners of the popular Preposterous Universe and Orange Quark, have thrown their voices together. The impressive list of contributers reads: Sean Carroll, JoAnne L. Hewett, Clifford Johnson, Mark Trodden and Risa H. Wechsler. While one wonders about the advantages of co-authoring a blog and despairs over the trail of dead blogs left behind, one wishes them all the best of luck with their endeavour, and is optimistic that they will be more entertaining than the average rock supergroup.

It is...wearing blood-spattered marigolds while it cradles the limp carcass of its former incarnation...rocking gently on its feet...and humming...tunelessly.
