Our Features

Here's a list of features here at the WGOM. It's not meant to be complete at this point - I'll be adding as we go, and as you correct me. If you have an idea for a feature, use this page to make sure you won't get buried or bury someone else. If you need authorship privileges, spookymilk, sean, or brianS can provide them.

Your daily source for half baked crap

Weekly Features

Friday Music Day (AMR)
Random musical thoughts from AMR. But mostly, the LTEs section is for citizens to share the first random ten from their digital music device or service of their choice, for the approval or disapproval of the others. Also, citizens can share any thoughts on music that can wait until Fridays.
Episodic EPL Exposition and/or Monday MLS Mayhem - Mondays (MagUidhir)
The EEE and MMM provide a weekly round-up of Citizens' favorite soccer teams. This space is also used for any other general soccer items to share.
Weekly Wild Whangdoodle (Daneekas Ghost (seasonal))
A desperate attempt to give the local hockey team some WGOM ink.

Monthly Features

First Monday Book Day (Daneekas Ghost with guest appearances)
In which bS bloviates on a book he managed to read in the past month, as an excuse to talk about Literature. Proving once again that the WGOM is the World's Greatest Online Magazine. Like the New Yorker without cartoons or paid professionals.
Third Monday Movie Day (spookymilk)
Our resident film actor and screenwriter, spookymilk, gushes about a film only a handful of Citizens know about, followed by spirited discussions about the great and the terrible in all aspects of film and television.
Pixel Perfect Memories (Beau)
In where the nation discusses video games once per month, and Beau hails a relatively unknown or unsung treasure from the past.
Father Knows Best (rotating authorship, Third Thursdays)
A monthly column regarding the sisyphean nature of joys of parenthood, with content provided from the wealth of the Nation's wisdom.

Intermittent

Analysis (ubelmann)
Classic Album Reviews (freealonzo)
Every month Freealonzo digs into his CD collection, pulls out a favorite album and ruminates.
Musings from the Emeritus (SBG)
The Nation Has An Appetite (various)
The national pastime is inexorably linked to food. We know a thing or two about food, or at least we like to think that we do. This irregular column is a community effort to share recipes and food experiences.
The Nation Has Problems (GreekHouse)
A chance to flex your mind muscles. Learn about how math affects sports and the world around us.
Twins Collectibles Spotlight (Rhubarb_Runner)
Pictoral vingettes focusing on baseball collectibles, primarily Twins collectibles.
NCIS (Various)
Entertaining exercises in identifying past games or at bats based upon a single photograph from a newspaper, magazine, or baseball card, for example.
Get to Know 'Em (MagUidhir)
Comment Plaques (MagUidhir)
Barley Pops and Hop Hits (brianS)
The WGOM wouldn't be the WGOM without a healthy dose of alcohol. But we are responsible drinkers. BPHH explores the glorious world of fermented grains, one pint at a time, through irregular beer reviews (Pint-Sized Reviews), and the occasional beer travelogue. Guest posts are welcomed, and home brew sharing strongly encouraged.
T-Wolves T-Wrap-Up (SBG? (Seasonal))
Random Day in Twins History (The Dread Pirate)

A few of the Citizens who do intermittent features have expressed a willingness to share their features. The best policy is to ask them to be sure you're not stepping on toes.

Remodeled basement. Same half-baked taste.
