    Interesting blogs off the beaten path

    Looking for some good, interesting blogs, that are non-political, just to expand myself. Art, music, games, food whatever.
    As a start here is my favorite, from the excellent artist and author Shaun Tan http://thebirdking.blogspot.com.au/

    Robert Yang has a pretty good video game blog that's definitely off the beaten path. http://www.blog.radiator.debacle.us/?m=1

    My favorite game blog is by Emily Short though. She's like the patron saint of game storytelling.
    https://emshort.blog/

    Lubos Motl has a physics blog, Reference Frame. Top notch physics plus conservative quackery. The guy's kind of an ass, but he's an entertaining one. I guess it might break your no-politics rule, but you don't read it for the political posts. You read it for the physics.

    Brian Leiter has a cool philosophy blog. I guess he can be political at times too, but most stuff is hard philosophy.

    I recommend Darren Naishes zoology blog: https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/tetrapod-zoology/
    Lots of interesting obscure biology, palaeo stuff, legit cryptids etc. He's a funny dude too.

    Ed Yong's Nat Geo one is good too:http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/

    A few gaming ones that I remember made an effort to avoid politics when I last checked:

    Shamus Young has a blog type of thing where people write about games and stuff. Mrbtongue is currently writing a series about the Game of Thrones TV show there, for example.

    Lars Doucet has some pretty interesting stuff about the business side of the game industry: http://www.fortressofdoors.com/

    Jeff Vogel writes about being an indie developer, mostly: jeff-vogel.blogspot.com

    Warren Spector writes stuff once in every blue moon: https://warrenspector.wordpress.com/

    Hmm what exactly do you classify as "off the beaten path?"

    THE PSYCHOLOGY OF VIDEO GAMES - exactly what it says. pretty insightful with a podcast series. One of the few online peoples I decide to Patreonize.

    Chaotic Stupid - game design wisdom, pretty good stuff but not frequently updated

    Pentadact / Tom Francis - blog of ex PC Gamer Writer turned game creator (Gunpoint, Heatsignature)

    MindHacks - psychology blog, latest studies and introspection

    Raptitude - life musics, philosophy, self-improvement... not sure how to describe it, but it can be pretty insightful at times.
