Peripheralizing Ourselves

June 5, 2007

The comment posted on Caught One by eastcoastdweller really got me thinking. I stared at the computer screen and totally agreed with his comment. I couldn’t think of anything to reply back to it. On my way home, I thought of a similar comment that [Keep Reading]

Guilty Pleasures

June 4, 2007

Much More Music ran a special called Top 50 Guilty Pleasures last week. It’s interesting to see the pop songs of the past that didn’t result in anything other than one hit wonders. It is almost like the music industry is meant to be disposable. [Keep Reading]

Caught One

May 31, 2007

May 28, 2007

So the ever elusive Part 3 of my novel came together a bit today. I am now up to page 199. I don’t know why this portion of the book has been so difficult to write. Part 1 and 2 seemed to come to me with very little effort. The story is nearly [Keep Reading]

Hip Hop at the Crossroads

May 25, 2007

XM Satellite Radio ran a special last night called Hip Hop at the Crossroads: A Town Hall Meeting. The show had very notable members of the hip hop community who all spoke frankly about the state of hip hop culture. It was an illuminating program. I [Keep Reading]

I Failed Today

May 24, 2007

I promised myself that I would not yell in the classroom today. It was a promise that I was not able to keep. It feels like I failed today. In a few weeks I will need to start writing report cards. I have been getting quite frustrated lately with my [Keep Reading]
