HOW I VIEW MEDIA

As a person in the 21st Century, we have more methods of consuming art than ever before. Everywhere we turn is a screen ready to deliver all sorts of useful knowledge to us instantly. The low cost of entry to information allows inputs of every type into our brains, but ironically, we are not a [...]

TIN MAN

Have you ever known someone who deserved what they got, but not the way they got it? In my line of work, I know many people who get the shaft for the right reason but the wrong way and i often wonder to myself, "who are these vigilantes who parade around handing out justice like [...]

SWEAR THIS SENSE OF URGENCY

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2009 There were some students this year who found out that their newspaper program had been cut. This was supposedly do to a lack of interest in the program, although last years controversial issues and articles had, last we heard, generated a large interest in joining the staff if only to challenge [...]

RATHER THAN DREAM, HAVE HOPE.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2009 My band nearly broke up yesterday. Not the way that one might see a band breaking up, over an ironic cacophony and yelling and depedancy driving bottles of booze, but over a simple truth. Life goes on.

This is the chorus of my life, [...]

THE GRIMM FAIRY TALE

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2009 What do we do when the answers we were given as children are no longer good enough? Simple tales of good and evil line the fabric of our childrens minds played out in propagandized fables of heroes and witches and beautiful heroines strewn in the castle tower high atop an array [...]

MORE THAN WHAT WE HOLD

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2009 Never count out God. I don't like to be Christian centric in my writing and I'm not going to be here, but those who know me, know that I am a big fan of God. I'm not somebody who parades around my faith as a thing for the masses to gock [...]

BLOOD AND HERITAGE

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2009 We often times lift a certain standard above any other when it comes to relationship by relegating that standard to the position of a series of automated responses to normative circumstances. Therefore, when a person calls me a friend, it is because of the way in which i have fit his [...]
