Pat Robertson: Part 1

 

 Pat Robertson was in the news yet again for a statement he later apologized for. A pattern appears to be forming. At first glance, it seems like the man blurts out before considering the ramifications and then tries to take it back. That’s not what I see happening here, though.

Unanswered Questions from LOST on ABC

 

 I’m deep into LOST, the hottest show on Prime Time. Is this show going to completely disappoint me? Each new episode is so fascinating to me. Of course, whoever decided to make us wait for three weeks for another new episode should be shot, drawn, and quartered (i’m pretty sure […]

LOST: A New Episode

 

 I am caught up in the story and characters of LOST. I wasn’t really very impressed by the first episode. But then somewhere toward the end of the first season, I tried watching again and found the characters had developed to an interesting level.

Blogs: A New Public Relations Tool

 

 We all know that blogs have taken the internet by storm (if you don’t know what a blog is, skip this article and move on to the one announcing the wheel). Millions of people are posting their thoughts, ideas, dreams, gossip, advertisements, and complaints on the web through personal weblogs. […]

Fantasy Novels: Robert Jordan

 

 I read somewhere recently that fantasy novel sales are rising faster than most genres. USA Today even did a story on the genre, crediting The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and The Wheel of Time collections with repopularizing a classic literary style in popular culture.

Discovering Anselm Kiefer

 

 It was the fall of 2001. 9/11 was on the horizon. I was studying in Denmark for a semester and enjoying the early autumn light. My fellow students and I were given tours of several attractions and museums early in the semester. And somewhere along that unintended path, I encountered […]

The Beginning

 

 Welcome. The name CultureFeast came to me more than a year ago and wouldn’t leave. There have been many plans for this name: online bookstore, blog, art & culture review, and copywriting portfolio. Because this blog will not contain the scope of my vision, this blog may eventually move to […]
