The Blog Shortcut, June 27 Edition

Turn an ear -- and an eye -- to the fresh content available from Westword's blog quintet.

Demver reveals the connection between a local activist and Crosby, Stills & Nash. It's a new take on conventional wisdom. Backbeat Online offers a Beyond Playlist post with extended reviews of recordings by artists ranging from BLK JKS to Clay Aiken -- and that's a mighty wide range. Cafe Society invites you to sample some frozen yogurt with the Candy Girls. And The Cat's Pajamas gets to the bottom of an in-ground septic tank that liquefies pet waste in an environmentally friendly way. That's one way of turning brown into green. -- Michael Roberts
