Oh Country, My Dear Country!Knightwalker

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 12:22:55 +0000

We are haunted by our past… sixty year-old ghosts linger in our consciousness. We remain frozen in old arguments, in old mindsets. As the world looks in awe and heralds us as the future of the globe, laying across our shoulders a wealth of labels that proclaim us as ‘superpower’, as democratic brother, as ideological […](image)

Review: “The Lies of Locke Lamora” by Scott LynchKnightwalkerThe Lies of Locke Larmora

Sun, 21 Jan 2007 18:41:00 +0000

“The Lies of Locke Lamora” has received more than its fair share of attention this past year, first with a number of raving and positive reviews, along with favourable blurbs by the likes of George R. R. Martin. As a result of this it was later on involved in a rather distasteful confrontation between several […](image)

Weightloss Saga: BeginningsKnightwalker

Tue, 16 Jan 2007 13:23:56 +0000

I have struggled with my weight ever since I left school. As my trainer recently informed me, after one turns 18, the body’s metabolic rate automatically continues to diminish throughout one’s lifetime. And so perhaps the timing of my weight gain is perhaps no mystery, although it was certainly not helped by the fact that […](image)

A Renewed Commitment to the Practice of BloggingKnightwalker

Thu, 21 Dec 2006 00:22:06 +0000

Yes, I know… even a cursory glance at this blog reveals just how negligent I’ve been over the past six months or so. Lazy, lazy, lazy, that’s what I am. But the end of a year, the promise of a whole dozen fresh new months, does wonders for one’s capacity for self-delusionment. So from this […](image)

The Charismatic Charms of Nick Hornby: "About a Boy" – A ReviewKnightwalker

Tue, 10 Oct 2006 00:59:03 +0000

Nick Hornby is one of those authors that one always keeps as a good backup, saving him for a rainy day, though never really thinking about him for all the other sunny, summer months in between. I’ve been aware of Hornby’s work for many years now, probably soon after I watched “High Fidelity” and figured […](image)

Piano ManKnightwalker

Wed, 26 Jul 2006 18:00:56 +0000

When I was 7 years old, my parents sent me away to boarding school. It was far away from home, and for some reason I just did not fit in. After two rather miserable years there, I had just about had it with the place… I was done struggling with trying to fit in and […](image)

Rolling Review: “The Historian” – Elizabeth Kostova (Part I)Knightwalker

Thu, 30 Mar 2006 04:47:17 +0000

I had, at first, been reluctant to pick this book up, inundated as I was with all the marketing and buzz surrounding it. The last time I had felt like this about a novel, was with "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrel" by Susanna Clarke, and I was thoroughly disappointed after buying it. But on the […](image)

Introducing the Rolling ReviewKnightwalker

Thu, 30 Mar 2006 03:19:03 +0000

I made a committment earlier, to write about each and every book I read this year. Obviously, I have failed to do so rather spectacularly. So it is with great pride and joy that I unveil the Rolling Review. From now on, I shall attempt to write about a book as I am reading it. […](image)

So, there really is a God? And Scientology is his religion?Knightwalker

Fri, 24 Mar 2006 00:13:39 +0000

Absolute knowledge is a fictional creation, as is the idea of an absolute truth. And so, while I have professed to be an avowed atheist over the past five or six years, I have slowly acknowledged within myself that I more agnostic than atheist. Of course, since the former merely allows that a God (or […](image)

Don’t be Evil (and other hopes for the future)Knightwalker

Tue, 07 Mar 2006 20:45:17 +0000

This is not ostensibly a post about Google. It is in part however, inspired by Google and their far-reaching motto, as well as their well publicized aim of 'indexing the world's information'. A while back I wrote about Wikipedia and the controversy over the inaccuracies inherent in such a system. What people seemed to be […](image)
