Review: The Last Colony

The Last Colony by John Scalzi My rating: 5 of 5 stars Part 3 of the John Scalzi Old Man’s War series carries the torch quite well, delivering a good story, advancing/developing the characters we meet and ones we’ve come to enjoy in the previous 2 books. Very briefly, this is a continuation of the […]

Review: Cryptonomicon

Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson My rating: 5 of 5 stars Wow, what an enjoyable read! Neal Stephenson is one of those authors that until a couple of years ago had been notable because I had several of his books on my “to read” list (and on my shelves) who always seemed to get high praise, […]

Review: The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Review: Ready Player One

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline My rating: 5 of 5 stars First off, I’d just like to say that I could kick myself right now. Why? Because this book started showing up on my “to-read” and suggested books lists in various places like Shelfari, Goodreads, and Amazon about 2 years ago. Maybe longer. I […]

Anything Worth Doing…

So I was watching YouTube videos and I came across this one where the guy was talking about his personal philosophy and this concept really stuck with me:  When you first say it out loud “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly” it just feels “off.” But then when you think about it, it makes […]

Is the PlayStation 4 Worth Buying?

I’m just a tiny bit ashamed to say: “I’m a gamer.” I enjoy playing video games from time to time. By no means would anyone call me a hard-core gamer, but when the “Next Generation” of consoles were announced, I was pretty excited. For the past 5 years or so I’ve been gaming on the […]
