I mentioned Les Miserables in my last post because it’s been on my mind lately (with the new movie and all) and because it’s quite possibly the greatest musical ever made. I love musicals.

Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble. –Proverbs 13:20 Man, I am really bad at this blogging thing.

I started Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series a few years ago, but never managed to get past the second book; not because it wasn’t good, I just didn’t have the time.  Now I find myself with long moments here and there, in between various work projects, but I don’t have the books with me.  […]
