More on Solzhenitsyn
Previously, we had posted on Alexander Solzhenitsyn's interview with Der Spiegel. This new title came out a little bit ago. (Ironic?) From the review:
If a single figure summarizes the meaning of the twentieth century—in its magnificent highs no less than its miserable lows—it is Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Like all masters of culture both ancient and modern, his work transcends academic categories. As the editors make clear, Solzhenitsyn embraces the empirical and the ethical, the national culture of Russia and the global condition of Western civilization. The cloth of heroism is woven in respect for everyday life. Solzhenitsyn knows this, and this fine collection is a stark testament to the precious gift of his life and the enrichment he has given to ours.

Banality
According to Google News, the things I should be interested in right now are lil' Bush is getting married, Michael Vick kills dogs and its a federal offense (too bad he didn't kill a human; it would have been a much lighter sentence) and David Beckham is changing American soccer. Hmmm... not so much.

Lund,

I keep thinking about this video. Thanks for posting it.

Brian,

Greetings from Phoenix! How are you liking Escondido? What's going on in your world etc...? By the way I thought I would let you know that I just put your blog on the "Blogs I recommend list" at www.theocentricview.blogspot.com

Shoot me an email some time if you get a chance. Perhaps we could hook up sometime.

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely.
