Killing Time – February 7, 2013

The name of this blog came from a short column I used to do about all the media I was consuming.  I don’t review half of what I read/listen/watch/play because it’s a lot.  I don’t sleep much.  My mind is a dangerous thing to leave unoccupied (again, if you care to know why, www.changeforfive.org, this is my refuge blog) so I flit from thing to thing, soaking up as much as I can.  I’m committing myself (not literally, though it’s been suggested) to getting something new up every day so I’m slowly developing regular features and I liked this one.  It is just a simple snapshot in time of what those things are.  Some may show up as reviews later, most won’t.  But if you’re reading/watching/listening/playing any of these, comment below and we’ll discuss.  More comments, guys!  Talk with the guy stabbing the watch!
