Blogpost of the Week is a new feature here, an attempt to highlight the best post I've read on a proper blog in a given week. (Give or take.) What you won't find honored with the shiny new graphic* are: essays in the New Yorker, or posts on a site like Vox or Medium. This is for the internet's red-headed stepchild only: posts written by a blogger on a that humble relic, the oft-eulogized but not-dead-yet labor of love, the independent blog. (Whenever possible, it will be one on such a tight budget that it's still got the '.blogspot.com' in the URL.)
Based on my reading habits, it was almost inevitable the first selection would come from a blog that that posts about Doctor Who frequently, and sure enough Jack Graham's Shabogan Graffiti gets the first nod, but not for a DW post. The highlighted post is actually a review of a movie I haven't seen, and which there's no better than 50/50 chance I ever will, but it's so well-composed, insightful, and freaking righteous it displaces its subject as the artifact that should be preserved for posterity.
