Professional Moron

A Confederacy of Dunces hit the shelves in 1980. Whilst that may sound normal enough, the story behind the publication of this work is tragic. Yet that goes against the humourousness nature of the work, with lumanaries such as Billy Connolly sighting it as his favourite comedy book. John Kennedy Toole (1937-1969) wrote it in […]

The B Suite

As the deluge in the basement continued, I became concerned about the books on the bottom shelf of the tall fiction bookcase. These are all my favorite fiction books from over the years (it gets culled and added to on a regular basis—mostly culled, lately). As the water bumped against the bottom of the bookcase, […]

I love to read.  I find it relaxing and a distraction from what’s going on in the world.  As we hit mid-March, I’ve now read 8 books as part of Mid-Continent Public Library’s #WinterReadingChallenge (so far this year) plus I’m in the process of reading 2 more and I’ve got another 2 waiting next to […]

Being a big fan of the ‘new year, new me’ craze, I have decided on my challenge for the new year. Let’s overlook that it’s already March somehow!  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Muted Trumpet

“Vampire Weekend’s ‘Harmony Hall:’ Escaping the Echo Chamber” by Sam Buntz Great art always means more than one thing. Try to peg a work of genuine artistic merit, and you soon find yourself attempting to balance between two unsteady stools. As a friend of mine pointed out recently, with a nod to Walt Whitman, the […]

The obsession of surrounding one’s self with familiar objects that have shaped our lives seems to […]
