Over the past few months I’ve found myself reading biographies on people that lived well before modern times. One of the things that struck me as particularly interesting was the way writers went about gathering information on their subjects. There were no TV interviews to watch, no documents left behind on the internet, and no living relatives […]

Why do I write?

Earlier today a friend of mine who writes because he loves to and also because he likes being paid for it confessed that he’s lost a little bit of his zeal for writing in recent times. More than anything it’s the writing he’s being paid for that’s been slowly sapping him of his joy. The finer details […]

I saw a meme earlier today with a saying something to the tune of “Don’t judge me for my past, but for the actions I take today”. It’s not the first time I’ve heard a saying with that type of sentiment and it certainly won’t be the last. But no matter how many times someone makes that statement, […]

The Pittsburgh Penguins Are Moving On

  I’ll be honest with you. The last few years being a Pens fan wasn’t the easiest. Yeah, they were winning in the regular season and annually making the playoffs but I expect a lot from this team. They’ve won a Cup before with some of the best young (at the time) talent in the league. Since that […]

Prince passed away today. I wouldn’t classify myself as super fan or anything, but I always enjoyed his music. Back when I was kid, well before the internet was a part of life, my number one way of gathering information was by listening to my parents talk from the backseat of the car. I can remember when […]
