  • Secret of Life

    When I was a teenager I had this figured out. I was so sure that I knew what the secret of life was. I wrote about it in my old coiled notebook which was the first version of “Silent Cacophony.” I still haven’t been able to find this book but I have a few places […]

  • Skateboarding without a Skateboard

    Have you seen this new sport? It’s called parkour and it involves running, jumping, and flipping over every obstacle that you can think of. It looks amazing to see people acting like Spiderman by running up walls, jumping and flipping over buildings and anything else they happen to come across. It reminds me of skateboarding […]

  • Research has Changed Dramatically

    Research has changed dramatically since I was in school. I remember in elementary school the libraries still had card catalogues. We were trained in how to use them to find books that we wanted to find. Technology moves fast because by the time I was in high school, card catalogues were starting to go extinct. […]

  • Three Easy Pieces

    I ran to the record store today with determination. I hadn’t heard one song off the album I went to buy but I didn’t need to. I knew that this album would be good. And I was right. Most bands seem to change their sound every album. The artists always claim that it is a […]

  • Me vs. Myself and I’m Winning

    I heard that line in a song recently but I can’t remember where it is from. Time for a Google search… I came up empty on that search. Time to email my friend, his brain is full of hip hop and television trivia, if he can’t help me out no one can… Alright so I […]

  • Fan Fiction

    Fan Fiction does not interest me too much. Most of it is poorly written, which is a shame because some of the stories I have come across have had so much potential. It is hard to read fan fiction when the author tries to write it like they think a television episode would be written. […]

  • Build a Bear – Spend a Fortune

    If a child asks you to take them to Build-a-Bear in the mall, beware. I don’t want to knock the company or take any sales away from them because they are very good at what they do. In fact, a lot of companies seem to be good at this strategy, that I will call, sell […]

  • Trio of Poems

    I don’t know why I wrote that trio of poems on the theme “Out of Bounds.” It was just something that came into my head and I immediately saw three different takes on that one phrase. I wrote them quickly in one night, but now looking at them a week later, it seems that they […]
