Rant of an insensitive madman?

Well it would seem that my last post was, well, a while ago. It would appear that my ambition to keep up to date on posts has once again gone by the wayside. What have I been up to if not actively blogging? Well the answer to that is simple. Not much.  I have… …more

Under the Dome: A review

Yesterday I finished reading Stephen King’s novel, “Under the Dome”. This is the first novel I’ve actually finished reading from him in a while – last one being “The Cell”. I generally find his writing either hit or miss with me – this book is reminiscent of his earlier Bachman books, which I did enjoy……read more

…Braaaaaaaaaaaains!
