Best tool evar!

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

As I’ve been burning through the most excellent and really long (1000 page) novel, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, I’ve found it really hard to hold the gigantic book. I’m always very particular about not wanting to break the binding, and I’m not sure if this thing would help with that problem… but fucking check […]

Lit.org: Thank God I’m Not A Publisher

Monday, August 8th, 2005

About 4 years ago, I had the idea of a website where people could publish their own writings and recieve feedback. I’m not sure when this site was launched, but they aim to do the exact same thing. Except, just reading the stories makes me very happy that I didn’t ever finish developing the site, […]

Assasination Vacation

Monday, May 16th, 2005

Sarah Vowell is amazing. I have been a fan of hers for a couple of years now. She has done a bunch of pieces on PRI’s (RE: NPR radio stuff) This American Radio. Why am I fan? Because she is herself a great creative genius. Not really. What is she then? Isn’t that an insult? […]

Choose Your Own Adventure 2.0

Tuesday, April 19th, 2005

So, tonight I got to meet John Evans at our local Meetup.com group (video game development) and he was telling me about a project he had worked on a while ago.
It sounded so interesting to me that I decided to tell you all about it! Rokking! See, that’s the rokkstar power that we mighty bloggers […]

A Must Read for Evil Overlords

Wednesday, April 6th, 2005

At this point in my life, my career options are endless. In a few years, I’ll be trapped.
I’ve been carefully considering being an Evil Overlord for quite some time (Vader was way better than Skywalker). If you’ve ever considered the life of a villian, and really, who hasn’t… then you have to read this list […]

WTF News?

Monday, March 28th, 2005

Ok, here is a short rant that might not bother anybody at all.
99% of the news is useless to me. Why? Three reasons:
1) Absolutely uninteresting at all, no matter what. For instance this article about a space walk on the International Space Station today. So? Its not that I don’t care about global space programs. […]

Memior Flood

Friday, March 25th, 2005

The New York Times is carrying an article about the proliferation of memiors. Anyone who stops in the BN on occasion can notice how Autobiography is slowly swallowing fiction. I don’t think fiction is dead or that this trend will continue much longer.
Or maybe we, bloggers, are causing people to think their lives are […]

Shameful Book Buyer

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2005

Today I made a trip to the BN in Rockefeller Center. I made two particularily embarassing purchases.
This one is mostly embarassing because I had to browse the “Teen Fiction” section for it. I was rationalizing that I could say it was for my younger brother. Alas, I bought it because I read a really […]
