Pokemon Master

When I was a ten year old – maybe even a five year old – I wanted to be a Pokémon master. I’m twenty-eight now, and, to be honest, I still want to be one. Pokémon has been around for 25 years, which is nothing short of incredible, and it’s still going strong. I noContinue reading “Pokemon Master”

Five Favorite Books

A simple little post, talking about my five favorite books of all time. Admittedly, some titles on this list are flexible, but these are definitely in the upper echelon at a constant rate. 5.) Brave New World by Aldous Huxley“COMMUNITY, IDENTITY, STABILITY.”I am admittedly due for a reread of this book, as I’ve only readContinue reading “Five Favorite Books”

But – and I say this as someone who loves classic literature – it’s a downright slog to read. I’m glad that I readContinue reading “The Scarlet Letter”

Deep Forest

Instead of doing a “current tunes” post, I thought I’d take a minute to talk about one song in particular, and that song is Fukai Mori (translation: Deep Forest) by Japanese band Do As Infinity. Some folks may know this song as the 2nd ending theme for the anime Inuyasha, which is how I, asContinue reading “Deep Forest”
