Deeper Water by Robert Whitlow

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

File Under: Christian – Fiction – Law I found Deeper Water to be an unexpectedly interesting book about a young woman from a dedicated Christian home. She is a law student going to the big city for an internship. Since she’s a conservative Christian from a small town, life gets very different for her. This […]

Night Masks Review

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

Night Masks Review Yes, R.A. Salvatore has written more than just the Drizzt books, and yes, his other books are quite exciting as well. Night Masks has always impressed me because of the spiritual journey that Cadderly makes. The story contains your expected Salvatore action sequences, amusing, though insanely tough, dwarves, and the extra-inquisitive scholar […]

Jeremy Camp – Beyond Measure Review

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

I guess I’m not so much going to review this CD as I am going to make a comparison…a good comparison, in my mind. Jeremy Camp’s CD, Beyond Measure, reminds me a lot of Dishwalla, circa Pet Your Friends or maybe And You Think You Know What Life’s About though I don’t remember that CD […]

Review: Uncle Vanya

Saturday, March 18th, 2006

On Thursday night we went to see the Penobscot Theatre perform Uncle Vanya. I found it a rather enjoyable experience. There were, naturally, some things I could complain about. The Theatre for some reason deemed it necessary to drop the s-bomb a few times, and, at one point, had the physician and Vanya flipping each […]

Back to Serious

Friday, June 17th, 2005

After some silliness it is time to return to serious post. The problem is that my life is too boring to entertain anyone. Granted, to me it is fun. I enjoy reading and playing on the computer. I even like work. But these things make for boring stories. (Actually, if I could remember some of […]

Shadowmancer Review

Tuesday, May 24th, 2005

Shadowmancer by G.P. Taylor is a horrendous book. While his subject matter certainly had potential, the man is a horrible writer. Taylor rushes through the book when the background and subject matter require more detail and explanation. He has great potential in the book for some excellent descriptive writing, but ruins it with poor similes […]

Mercy Me–Undone

Wednesday, December 1st, 2004

I should have known not a single person would comment on my song. The trends are obvious. Fortunately I won’t let that stop me from posting them in the future. Unfortunately, I don’t have many more. I’m not going to do a big, long review like I did for Caedmon’s Call–Share the Well. I only […]

“A Bad Year For Tomatoes”

Tuesday, November 16th, 2004

A week ago Saturday my wife and I went to a small stage set in a hidden school in an out-of-the-way town to see a play called “A Bad Year for Tomatoes” which I had read about in the paper. The play definitely was far more grand than the setting allowed for. You can read […]

Mark Schultz/Avalon Concert

Wednesday, November 10th, 2004

Matthew West I must confess, Mr West Did not strike my…interest. He sang every word, even when talking, Which he not only did between songs But during songs, too. I still can’t help but feel bad for performers, though, When they try to get audience participation But the audience is mega-lame And when no one […]

Share the Well

Monday, November 8th, 2004

One thing I have to explain is that I don’t keep up with the band’s going ons as much as I would like to, nor as much as I could, nor as much as many other people do (you know who you are), so my review is from my point of view only. Share the […]

Gideon’s Dawning

Monday, August 30th, 2004

In hopes of something that may soon come to pass, I figured I’d start a book review. By Michael D. Warden, I find Gideon’s Dawn, while having great characters and unlimited potential, has a somewhat confusing dichotomy. On the one hand, Michael has created a great “world”, rich with history and political intrigue. On the […]
