This blog will simply be a collection of my musings and half-baked ideas about history, literature, language, politics and anything else that catches my interest. I've long wanted to read through Great Books in their original languages, reviewing each one as I go. Perhaps I'll do some of that here. If I see a movie or read a good non-fiction book, I'll also post a review.
I drew the animated GIF you see in the top right corner of this page using a mouse and MS Paint more than a decade ago. Unfortunately my face resembles that picture now more than it did then, making it not entirely inappropriate as this pseudonymous blog's sole visual representation of its author.
