Review: Taliesin

So, I admit, I’m a little behind on this one. Taliesin, by Stephen R. Lawhead, was released in 1990, but I only recently picked it up on a visit to Barnes & Noble when I was looking for something to…

Birthday

So.  Yesterday was my birthday. I received three cards, some money and three free meals. Friday, my friend Quinn bought me lunch at a favorite haunt of mine: Hacienda Colorado.  Friday night, I bought myself a couple of DVD’s and…

The Shuttle Ride

(this never posted when I was actually riding around in the shuttle, so I’m gonna go ahead and put it up today.  I’ll post much, much more about the Blizzcon trip this week as time permits) So.  I know there…

The trip begins

Well, the trip is on! I am kicking back at DIA, waiting for my flight. Should be about 20 minutes. I must give credit where credit I’d due: security, though tight, moved quickly. I don’t think it took 10 minutes.…

Vacation

Just a quick post. It seems weird to me, going on an actual vacation.  This is not something that I ever do.  I don’t ‘get away’.  I don’t ‘take time off’ – it’s all very foreign to me. And yet,…

Review: Mage-Guard of Hamor

I recently talked about the author L.E. Modesitt Jr. and his book, Natural Ordermage.  Well, there was a second piece to that story that takes up almost immediately where the first book left off: Mage-Guard of Hamor. Again, this is…

Review: Natural Ordermage

It’s no secret that author L.E. Modesitt Jr. is a favorite of mine.  His Recluse and Spellsong Cycle books are among my favorites, going into the ‘re-read’ category of my little library here at home – meaning, I re-read them…

Another music rant

I know, I know – I’ve ranted about the music industry before, but they simply won’t go away and that means I have to continue to rant about their overwhelming stupidity. They are still not content with the billions of…

Warcraft: Four years later

Wow.  Or, WoW. Four years of World of Warcraft.  I can’t believe it’s been four years.  With Blizzcon approaching, I’ve been thinking back on how Warcraft has impacted my life. At best I can be considered a casual player these…

Blizzcon

So. One week til Blizzcon. I’m starting to get excited! Believe it or not, for me, it’s more about getting away and seeing friends than it is about going to a video gaming convention.  WoW has made me a lot…

The Mighty Mouse (or lack thereof)

Hello, I’m a Mac. No, seriously.  I love Mac.  I love Apple.  I’ve had some issues with their retail stores, but it looks like the one closest to me is under new management or something and it’s like being in…

Sprint Sucks

So.  I got an iPhone. My old Sprint phone had been broken for a while.  I really needed something new but, of course, Sprint would give me nothing.  I wasn’t eligible for an upgrade.  And, let’s be honest – even…

Debates continued

7:23. My next impression: Senator Obama was doing really well until he reacted to Senator McCains comments on taxes. At that point, he seemed turn stumble a little. 7:26. Senator McCain appears very stiff to me. Like he is uncomfortable,…
