A Voice

Radical by David Platt With every bit of honestly and authenticity I can muster, I humbly admit that I desire the reach that Platt has, though not by any means with the same method. I wanted to know what Mr. Faucett thought of this concept when we met in Rainbow City, and, of course, hisContinue reading “A Voice”

A Rendition

LeMorte d’Arthur by Sir Thomas MaloryA rendition in modern idiom by Keith Baines The Old French translation of the title would be The Death of Arthur.

The Stormlight Archive, Book One

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson There will never be another Lord of the Rings, and it is a shame that it is so. I am much too critical of fantasy novels. I want to write some myself, and it is certainly possible that a great alternative to Middle Earth simply just hasn’t foundContinue reading “The Stormlight Archive, Book One”

The #1 Personal Finance Book of All Time?

Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki I fought him throughout my entire reading experience. Many of Kiyosaki’s ideologies were hard to swallow, and I realized that I fell into the category of “Poor Dad” more often than not. I have made a promise to myself, and I have made a challenge with myself. TheContinue reading “The #1 Personal Finance Book of All Time?”

He Beat Dan Hardy

The Way of the Fight by Georges St Pierre UFC 111. March 27th, 2010. Welterweight Championship fight. And my apathy could not have been more apparent. I knew nothing of UFC.
