The Finishing of a Book

If you’re like me and you like to read a lot, you will know that there is something special about finishing one. Especially when the volume is a long and laborious one. There is a certain sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that goes with turning the last page. Usually my eyes can’t help but get … Read more

Chicken Little

The Dixie Chicks appear to be at it again. The lead singer, Natalie Maines, wore a T-shirt with some less-than-subtle initials on it, apparently aimed at rival country singer Toby Keith (isn’t it funny how much country music is resembling professional wrestling these days?). The Chicks were again booed, which makes me think that may … Read more

“Reality” Check

As I was flipping through the channels tonight (this is the phrase people use when they don’t want to be embarrassed at what they were watching), I caught about 15 minutes of one of the new reality shows called For Love or Money. Apparently the formula of this show is that 15 women vie for … Read more

Truth Unfettered is Dangerous

William F. Buckley enters the fray over evangelical Christians in Iraq. Buckley, a Catholic, brings a rare level-headed response from a non-evangelical on the issue. If you’re not familiar with the discussion, it involves the question of whether or not Christian aid groups, such as Franklin Graham’s Samaratan’s Purse and others, should be allowed to … Read more

Johnny Estes, R.I.P.

And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; … Read more

Summer Reading

I always love summers (especially academic ones) because I get to read more. Not that I don’t read enough the rest of the year, but in the summer, what I read is dictated by me. I get to pick, and this suits me just fine. This summer have plans for many books to complete, though … Read more

Matrix Reloaded

Here is my promised, and brief review of The Matrix Reloaded. The effects are out-of-this world, the fight scenes borderlined on the beautiful, and the storyline was disappointing. The movie ran like a director’s cut at times, including scenes that could easily have been left out. There were good philosophical questions raised, but they didn’t … Read more

SPF 15 is worthless

I’m back from the windy and sunny South Carolina coastline. The sun was yellow, but my previously blinding-white skin is now quite pink. No more. From now on, it’s SPF 30+.

Travel Blog

For those few souls who read this blog, I am currently traveling, therefore you won’t be seeing much activity (of course, I’ve been in exams and writing papers since I started the blog, so there hasn’t been much activity anyway). I’ll be back soon, and I’ll have my Matrix Reloaded review up. I saw it … Read more

Kentucky Fried Brain

The Spring semester 2003 is now finished for me. What day is it? The last few have been a blur. It’s always difficult to accelerate to the frenetic pace of the last month of the semester, and then come to a sudden halt. But I suppose I will manage. Shouldn’t I be doing something?…
