Since getting the Kindle a few years ago, the amount of time I devote to reading has skyrocketed. In that time, I have read a lot of great stuff, a few horrible things, and reacquainted myself, through rereading, to familiar yet forgotten works. In that time, a couple of new (at least, new to me) … Continue reading Two great authors and a lecture

My Lost Theory
*Note that there is a possible spoiler ahead if you have not seen last night’s episode* A new and unique theory of Lost occurred to me this morning. It is not one I have heard elsewhere and I think that maybe it does a good job of unifying other theories. For example, many people believe … Continue reading My Lost Theory
