Why Blog?

What will this blog bring you?  In the past, I have posted notes on facebook, partially to elicit comments and thoughts from others, and also to indulge myself.  Here, I seek to do that in a more organized and consistent fashion.  Further, I will be posting links to audio lectures that I find, bboy and martial arts videos as well as book critiques (/reviews).  Don't worry, I won't post all the latest viral videos, only the more obscure ones that are difficult to find, or the ones about which I have something worthwhile to say.  To start, I'll give you a preview of the books which I plan to critique.
The Lost Millenium: History's Timetables Under Siege
Iraq: The Borrowed Kettle
The Rebel Sell
Black Mass: Apocalyptic Religion and the Death of Utopia

In the words of my favourite Kwik-E Mart employee "Thank you, come again!"


  1. Funny how I mention following your readings less than a month before you set up a blog. Must be a sign!

    And didn't you read Rebel Sell a while back?

  2. I did read rebel sell quite a long time ago, but I loved it so much, I felt compelled to give it some press on here.
