Week 8 Response

Okay so this week I chose to read some nonfiction from Persimmon Tree: An Online Magazine of the Arts by Women over Sixty. I thought it was awesome that it only includes work written by women, and even cooler that only women over sixty are eligible for publication in this magazine. The piece I read …

Week 7 Response

So last week my group presented the book The Adderall Diaries by Stephen Elliott. One painfully obvious fact was that very few people actually read the book, so the discussion was pitiful. It only involved my group members, the professor, and maybe two other people. I didn’t really want to express my opinion of the …

SBR, ILY!

(Disclaimer: Just to clarify, the title of this post stands for: Sent By Ravens, I Love You!). You may recall a post I did a couple of weeks ago about a band I love called Sent By Ravens. Well, fortunately for me they are having another show this weekend, and I’m absolutely going to it. …

Week 6 Response

The piece I chose to write about today was published on Friday, March 2nd, 2012 in Booth. The Essay is called “Life Lessons To Be Learned From The Extinct” and it was written by Robin Black (http://booth.butler.edu/2012/03/02/life-lessons-to-be-learned-from-the-extinct/). There is a humorous tone which I really liked. Near the beginning Black wonders why a Brontosaurus in …

Sent By Ravens Sent From Above

It was late April 2009, and I’m pretty sure it was a Thursday night because I had plans to go to a bar called Dos Primos to see a band called Faster!Faster! play a show. I was on my way to buy a carton of cigarettes from Parker’s gas station, when I received a text …
