Flash Fiction
Paragraph Planet is a cool website that publishes one 75-word paragraph every day. I've been following them on Twitter for a while, and I finally got around to submitting something this summer.  I'm proud to say that "The Raft" is featured today on the site...

Top Ten Books of 2015
Getting a little late for an end-of-the-year list, but what the hell. I read 43 books in 2015. The books on my list weren't necessarily published in 2015, just books I read this year. 10) Shotgun Lovesongs , Nickolas Butler: written by a fellow Badger, this...

Top Ten Movies of 2015
So yeah, it's been a while. You know, life and whatnot. I haven't felt the urge to write anything for the blog in quite some time, but with the end of the year approaching, I've been seeing a lot of end-of-the-year lists out there. My favorite thing about t...

Y is for..........YouTube.
I love YouTube. I like checking out the latest viral videos as much as the next guy, and I can't tell you how many times YouTube has bailed me out at school. Kids, today we begin designing our catapults. Blank stares. How 'bout we check out a couple YouTube...

To be honest, I was just going to skip X this year. But then something happened this morning. Every Monday I give my students a vocabulary packet, and when I flipped to this week's unit in my trusty vocabulary book I had to laugh. The words all include the ...

A-Z
It's Spring Break here in the desert, so feeling pretty good on a Monday. It's also St. Patrick's Day, but despite being a proud Irishman, I don't get too revved up on the 17th. I'm more than happy to let everyone else get their Irish on, so if you're so in...

Top Ten Movies of 2013
Probably getting a little late for an end-of-the-year list, but what the hell. I'm still ahead of the Oscars. I watched 65 movies in 2013, down from 82 in 2012. The reason for the drop is simple: Breaking Bad . Meg and I binge-watched the entire series and ...

Top Ten Books of 2013
I'm a big end-of-the-year list kind of guy. I read as many as I can, and I've enjoyed doing my own book and movie lists. I haven't been blogging much lately, but I feel like the top ten lists are a tradition I need to continue. I read 46 books in 2013, down...
