Shenanigans Episode 41: It Begs the Question

Howie accidentally stumbled upon one of Rich's pet peeves, and then proceeds to stun Rich with all his obscure pop culture references. Who knew there were so many drunken characters in Disney movies? Apparently only Howie. We discovered that there is an Amish Uber driver. Do we have to use smoke signals or semafore to book our ride? Have we had enough of sex robots yet? The consensus is no.

Thinking Out Loud on the Homefront: New Voices in an Old Genre

Earlier this year I read a bunch of books in a row that left a mark on me that was significant enough to write some sort of quasi-review.

Literally the Best Reviews: The 17th Suspect

The 17th Suspect -- James Patterson & Maxine Paetro
Little, Brown & Company
368 Pages

I swore after reviewing the The 15th Affair by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro that I would not review another James Patterson book. I’ve already broken that vow with my review of The President is Missing, Patterson’s book with former President, Bill Clinton. And here I go again with another review from that author.

If you’ve read my reviews of James Patterson, you know that I’m not a big fan of James Patterson the Author, although I am a big fan of James Patterson the Businessman. The guy has sold over 375 million books with his name plastered across it, even if he barely wrote any of them. He also hosts a writing clinic, which I think is ironic considering he barely writes any of his own books. Still, he’s got a great business mind, raking in millions each year.
