Book Meme 2012 Week 9: Honeymoon Literature

Topic: Which book(s) would you bring on your honeymoon? My instinctual response is to say that my beloved wife and I aren’t likely to be doing much reading under such a honey-filled moon…+) But cheekiness aside, and acknowledging that my unknown future lover is likely to love literature near as much as I do, thereContinue reading “Book Meme 2012 Week 9: Honeymoon Literature”

Short Film: “Night Light”

I promise, an actual Post of Original Content will come before too long. I’ve got the Meme to finish and a bunch of other overdue stuff as well. But first, another pretty animated short film.

A few weeks ago I had the honor of visiting two of those elegantly erudite ladies at the Egotist’s Club, Urania and Melpomene. Among the varying important cultural pastimes we took part in (an impressive Renaissance Faire, an Irish pub, stalking university grounds at night, watching me die hilariously in Assassin’s Creed 2 and TheContinue reading “Half Price Book Raid II”
