Mark’s Recent Updates

“Anger is a gift. Remember that." She stood. "You gotta grasp onto it, hold it tight and use it as ammunition. You use that anger to get things done instead of just stewing in it.”
Mark Oshiro, Anger Is a Gift

“It's an insidious thing," Wanda said. "It never happens overnight. This kind of thing crept into our community a long time ago. It latched on. It fed on prejudice. Selfishness. Peoples inability to see life through someone else's eyes. And it grew, bigger and bigger, until we got to a point where some people don't even question why a cop should be allowed to shoot first and ask questions later.”
Mark Oshiro, Anger Is a Gift

“But we just wanted to go to school." Her voice broke again. "I'm sixteen. I shouldn't have to beg for that. But we just want to get to class without fearing for our lives.”
Mark Oshiro, Anger Is a Gift

Frank Eldritch Your Mark-Reads and Mark-Watches are one of the best things I look forward to online. Your analyses about the Sh*tlight Saga had been cathartic for me. Your ASoIaF readings were also a delight. I'm so happy you're watching Veronica Mars and Supernatural. I do believe SPN will be very riveting for you, especially since you have fascinating ideas about religion and spiritual faith in general, and being an atheist yourself has made you more open-minded than most devouts I know. Thanks for adding me back and keep up the good work :D

Aaron If you haven't read Saga yet...read Saga from Brian K. Vaughn.
