John Farrier's Comments

"Should any free soul come across that place, in all the countless centuries yet to be, may all our voices whisper to you from the ageless stones: Go tell the Spartans, passer-by, that here, by Spartan law, we lie."

I've been summoned!

The late anime blogger Steven Den Beste hated recommendations so much that he would ban people for making them.

In my experience, taste in anime is so individualistic. There are many anime that are enormously popular that I find tedious and others that are obscure that I really like. That's why I talk about the anime that I enjoy, but I don't recommend any series to anyone.

I prefer to watch the movies in the order in which they were released.

Despite the hate that the prequels get (and I used to share), I re-watched them a year ago and found II and III to be good. III was arguable brilliant in its depiction of the seduction of Anakin Skywalker.

It happened to me shortly after I turned 40. Then, when I injured myself at the gym, I was out for a month instead of a week.

Now just kneeling for a few minutes has become painful.

I've read Dicuil! Ah, that takes me back. My first college historical research paper was about the Irish exploration and settlement of Iceland and Greenland.
