Testosterone Flicks

Can't sleep and am in the mood to make a list. So tonight's list is going to be about my guilty pleasure: testosterone flicks.

John Cleaver series - Spoilerific Book Review

I don't normally do book reviews because there are a gazillion blogs out there that review books. But I just finished the John Cleaver series by Dan Wells, and AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!

*note: I knew about these books because I follow Writing Excuses, and Dan Wells talks extensively about his writing process and his experience with these books, so I've been dying to read them for a while. I met him at Conduit last year and ordered the T-shirts for Christmas because, well, wow.... Anyway, my library just got book three, and I have just finished it.

So, !!SPOILERIFIC!! stuff to follow, but I have to talk about these books!  I'm not even sure I have words... and they're all going to gush out in run-on sentences when I find them.

A Multitude of Thoughts

 June came and went, and with it a great many thoughts I've been trying to distill so I can understand them. I just don't understand people sometimes. I understand motivations based on love, greed, compassion, bias, bigotry, moral standards, the need to be right, etc, but I don't understand how motivations translate to hurtful behavior that is considered acceptable. Isn't there a filter somewhere in there that says, "This behavior will yield this result or this result".
