yeah. that song nails so much for me it's probably an all time top ten. I can't believe you hated it, Shawn. The thing is I like slow songs, I really do but that song is waaaay too slow. Kind of like "Invisibly Shaken" by Rodney Adkins. I do believe that he wanted on more hit off his CD b...

Yeah, reading Dune in 'chronological' order is like reading The Magicians Nephew or Ender's Shadow first. sure it might work out, but why start with the wrong book? That made my heart beat a little faster. I don't want to be one of those people: "I like the Shadow Series better in large part b...

To me your sentences are too short and choppy. I tend to do that, too, when I write and so I read over it to see how I did. Most of the time I add commas are semicolons and remove some of the periods. Watch out, though, if you're like me I can overdo it with the commas! :D

Another thing I read in regard to Leviathan is that some scholars believe that when different Scriptures refer to Leviathan at separate places in the Bible, that it is talking about different animals.

Is that something that any of you have ever considered?
