I finally finished reading the massive 957-page sci-fi book Stardown Bullets by new writer Joseph Black (who is only a few months older than me, making my lack of success at novel writing all the more bitter — OK, not really). Overall, I think this may very well be the best science fiction book I’ve [...]
I’m continuing to read Patrick Rothfuss’s huge novel The Wise Man’s Fear. (I’ve been an extremely slow reader this year… I usually finish one or two books a month. But this year I’ve only finished reading one in the last eight months. Terrible! But the wordcount for The Wise Man’s Fear is about a bazillion [...]
I’m reading The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, only on page 150 of about 1000, so this will take a while. Unfortunately it’s due back at the library soon, so I might just have to buy it because I doubt I’d be willing to stop reading once it’s due. It’s an addicting book. Anyway, [...]
Finally finished reading a book, woohoo! It was on hold at the library, so I had to hurry up. ‘Twas The Lost Gate by Orson Scott Card, one of my favourite writers. ‘Twas a fun read. Not quite Ender’s Game, but hard to put down nonetheless. Makes you want to be a gatemage. Makes you [...]
Is it difficult to not push a particular button that sits in front of you? You know, a button you tap whilst typing day in and day out, whilst writing thousands… no… millions of words upon your digital contraption? Can you abstain from such an act? Actually, it’s not that amazing, but it can truly [...]
Animation studies continue It’s now week 7 (of 72) of Animation Mentor! The first semester (of 12 weeks) is half way over! Last week’s assignment involved animating a pendulum. Unfortunately, towards the end of the week (mostly Saturday and Sunday) I caught some sort of virus, so I lost a nice chunk of animation time, [...]

Yo, word up! Whatever that means… June already… soon the year will be half way over… and what have you got to show for it? I finished reading a short science fiction novel called Mass Effect: Revelation … yeah, it’s based on a video game, so I guess I’m a dork. But it was a [...]
I just finished reading Orson Scott Card’s InterGalactic Medicine Show (v. 1) — a collection of short stories from his online magazine. I haven’t read that many short story anthologies, but of the ones I have read, this is definitely one of the best. Plenty of really awesome sci-fi and fantasy short stories in here. [...]
I finished reading Neal Stephenson’s lengthy novel Anathem a short while ago. I’ve never read anything by Stephenson before, but I’ve seen his books at the library and bookstores, and they’ve always looked interesting. This is the first one I actually decided to go ahead and read. For someone who’s never read a Stephenson novel [...]
I was hoping to finish reading the book Lamentation today (I’ve got about 60 pages to go) when certain family members insisted that I read a book called The Invention of Hugo Cabret. It’s a pretty simple read since much of the book is pictures, and I finished it in a few hours. It was pretty [...]
