Have a seat, get comfortable, relax and enjoy the words. This is my new blog which will feature a variety of writings on a variety of topics, ranging from Underground Hip hop music to James Joyce's literature to the awesomeness of Kobe Bryant's jumpshot. I hope that there will be something for everybody to read and enjoy and get something out of on here---and I also hope some of those people will learn something new about a topic or genre they never knew anything about.
Here you will find reviews, critiques, analyses, blabberings, and perhaps even rants (I hate that word) about baseball, basketball, hockey, mythology (didn't see that coming!), literature, psychology, HIP HOP, cinema, artwork of all kinds, and whatever else I happen to decide is worth writing and reading about. There may even be appearances of my own 'artwork' once in a while; attempts at actual real-deal storytelling and writing. We'll see how that goes.
There's going to be some long, epic posts and essays at times. I can be long-winded with my words and my thoughts often arrive in chunky paragraphs. Be not daunted. I'll try to write as clearly as possible no matter what the subject is and if I go down some unfamiliar path or take a shortcut through an alleyway, this is the internet, Google it and you'll catch up in no time. How's that for a prolegomenon?
