There is no Life or Death
There is no Life or Death
And in the absolute

While much of Curb Your Enthusiasm’s humor is derived from the predicaments that Larry David gets himself into as a result of his inability to keep quite when in the presence of a faux pas, we should take note that the world needs more people like him. Too often, we find the internet to be a dump...Read more of this blog post »
Many years ago I told a friend I wanted to be a writer but was scared, I didn’t write like Dickens, nor expressed myself like Keats. ‘Boss,’ he said, ‘you don’t need a great vocabulary to write books. All you need is empathy.’ He was right, and of course, I... Read more of this blog post »
I’ve recently started watching a new anime. It’s called Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions. It about dealing with the delusion that at a certain age many people feel they are somehow more important than anyone else. That they perhaps have magical powers, and this leads them to behave abnormally...Read more of this blog post »

Guys, today I have to post about a wonderful story. Sometimes our dreams come true, and I am talking as a Sci Fi enthusiast more than anything else. How many of us have always desired to actually be the main protagonist of a Sci Fi Saga? Well…from reader to fan…from fan to friend…and from friend...Read more of this blog post »
The Babadook is one of those movies that you expect to be disappointed in. A creepy, atmospheric trailer seems to be a recipe for disaster, as proved by movies like The Conjuring, Sinister, Insidious 2, Mama and so on. Your mileage may vary on those flicks, but I was ultimately disappointed in al...Read more of this blog post »
For me to able to do this is pretty rad because for quite some time I haven’t been able to look back at an entire year and say; “This was a kick ass year!” The downside is that people will read this and get butt hurt because I have managed to have 365 days that didn’t suck. Sure, I got sick, and...Read more of this blog post »

Maybe it’s because I know more about Ben Lerner and his career than I do about Karl Ove Knausgaard and Elena Ferrante, but Leslie Jamison’s observation that the allure of memoir fiction lies in “the space of uncertainty where we don’t know what has been invented and what hasn’t” seems to apply mo...Read more of this blog post »

I thought I’d read a chapter or two before bed…and ended up reading the whole book. I absolutely adored this story and found myself wanting more. It’s one of the few books I’ve enjoyed reading recently. Some of them have been mediocre, but this one was absolutely stellar.
