Re-read "The White People," by Arthur Machen and "Count Magnus" by MR James, two of the greatest horror stories.

So:  Big Sleep was great.  Just as good as the movie, but very different.  I like the Thin Man movie better than the book.  Maybe because I have a man crush on William Powell and a real crush on Myrna Loy.

I recently read something about Thomas Jefferson and the Pirates of Tripoli

The treaty of Tripoli is famous because it was signed by the majority of the founding fathers of the United States of America, and declares explicitly that the United States is "not a Christian nation".

The book talked about how the pirates of Tripoli increased the cost of insurance for the United States, and about the beginning of the US Navy.

Apparently the USA could have done much better (the author blames an over-zealous diplomat).

I'm kind of dreading reading two Evangelicals doing Bible canon apologetics, but lots of people praise this one, so I'm giving it a shot.

Studying diligently Categories, by Aristotle. We're building a very nice study group and agreed to start by this piece of awesome.

I can't stop thinking in his own terms, now I see his ten categories in sentences with the same passion I saw grammatical structures when I fell in love with my own language lol

I've been given a copy of the Shack, with the comment that it's an amazing book and i will love it. I haven't started reading it yet, just dipping in and out but the prose looks utterly turgid. Is there something of worth in it, because i am not really inclined to wade through the writing if not.

Orthodoxy and Modern Physics

Quote
Washington State University physicists have created a fluid with negative mass, which is exactly what it sounds like.
....
Hypothetically, matter can have negative mass in the same sense that an electric charge can be either negative or positive. People rarely think in these terms, and our everyday world sees only the positive aspects of Isaac Newton's Second Law of Motion, in which a force is equal to the mass of an object times its acceleration, or F=ma. In other words, if you push an object, it will accelerate in the direction you're pushing it. Mass will accelerate in the direction of the force.

"That's what most things that we're used to do," said Forbes, hinting at the bizarreness to come. "With negative mass, if you push something, it accelerates toward you."

Lest Darkness Fall, by L. Sprague de Camp

The author seems to have a typically negative view of Constantinople/Justinian, and I'm not so sure about his terminology sometimes (someone self-identifies as a monophysite), but overall it's been a lot of fun.

William M Shirer: Rise and Fall of the Third Reich

A sentimental favorite.  I probably read this whole thing two or three times over the years at my grandparents house, so I ordered a copy for five bucks on Amazon.  This still might be the WW2 I enjoy reading most.  It's probably the one most responsible and formative for the I generally think of that war...that and the History Channel documentary I saw about how Hitler was using alien tech from Mars and occult magic.

I know there is a stronger case he was using Martian tech, but I still say he was more influenced by the Occult.  After all there is no evidence he wasn't using occult magic.  And I think if you know how to read the true signs of Real History correctly; Hitler left a lot of clues he was all about magic and not just Martian technology.

As part of research for the novel I'm currently writing...



A novel set during the Japanese rout in the Philippines in WWII (the author himself was a veteran who survived it). It was also made into an infamously grim film in 1959 by Kon Ichikawa.

I very briefly flipped through the Field at St Tikhon's bookstore a few weeks ago. Content-wise it looked like Path of Salvation but I can't get more specific than that.

Bulgakov, S. (2002). The Bride of the Lamb. (B. Jakim, Trans.). Grand Rapids, Michigan: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company.
