Clap Clap is reborn. The general format is a weekly essay. I don't know if Mike polished up his style during his hiatus, or refreshed his thoughts or it's just that early burst of born-again enthusiasm, but the first three essays (the compared funerals of James Brown and Gerald Ford; Paris Hilton; Lindsay Lohan's interview with Devendra Barnhart) are awesome. I loved his old blog, I just might love this one even more, already. And, of course, you're not reading Eppy if you're not reading the footnotes.
