Super Pooper
I ate obscene amounts of hot cuisine Mexican and Indian with Tabasco All I did was eat and sleep and feed Wishing every bite was not the last one But I haven’t had that urge that should be coming Suddenly, I feel so tight And it has to be so different When ...

Book Find: A Whole Store!
Arriving at the restaurant too early for our reservation, my friend told me, “There is a used English book store up the street a bit. Want to look around while we wait?” That is a silly question to ask a bibliophile. The Munich Readery claims to be the lar...

Church Leadership Ills (1Peter 5:1-5)
Peter lays out church leadership in terms that are, frankly, rarely followed these days. Experience in a myriad of churches all around the world shows me that most churches have more problems than they should, usually because these guidelines are not follo...

Star Trek TOS (Season 2c)
Season 2b —Season 2d At the peak of the show’s run we get some iconic… and frankly silly episodes. These are solid, but solidly ensconced in their time… Episode 15 “The Trouble with Tribbles”  Summary: In one of the most recognized episodes of the series, ...

Star Trek Voyager (Season 4a)
Season 3b —Season 4b Season four of Voyager starts out with a lot of plots that feel minor, and the screenwriters seem more interested in pursuing character lines. A relationship is developed between Paris and Torres, for example, but even more times is de...

"The Black Mountain" by Rex Stout (in brief)
I chose this volume out of several available at the second-hand store in Munich because it was the first ever Nero Wolfe book I ever read. What is surprising to me after rereading it, is that I am such a fan of the series. This is nothing like the rest of...

"What We Do In the Shadows" (2014/2015)
In a spoof of the “historic” Dracula, the character Vlad in “What We Do in the Shadows” claims that he was known as “Vlad the Poker.” So, later on when he is being taught to use the internet, and he is told that he can “poke” people on social networks, it ...

Magic
I believe in magic. It is dangerous. It is a risky thing to embrace. However, it can be beautiful and amazing. It can be worth the risk. To conjure is terrifying because magic involves trust, vulnerability,      and there are no guarantees. And, real magic ...

LePride
The debates rage in every sport and across generations: who is the best of all time? It tends to be a doable thing to measure who the best athlete in a sport is at any given time, but most debates fall apart when comparing individuals across time. It is a...
