Yesterday marked the release of my second work of non-fiction, in the form of Battle Tactics of the American Revolution, a short-ish treatise on, well, the battle tactics commonly employed by the British, French, German and colonial forces during the American Revolutionary War. It follows on quite neatly from my…

Living the Driven Life, Episode 156 (May 23-29, 2021): Still getting by…

Still a little melancholy over Miura’s death, but I’m talking with my friends from the Berserk fandom and others over Discord and they’re keeping me grounded. However, you may have noticed a change in the title of these. I might write about it later, but Miura’s death made me determined to be more focused. He […]

More good quotes

An extremely eclectic collection of quotes I decided to put out today. These are a bunch of amusing and or insightful comments I found on the Lawyers, Guns, and Money blog–hope the makers won’t mind. If anyone wants theirs removed I’ll do so, but for the moment I’m just putting it here for my own […]

Gun deaths data

Bit of a random thing, but I’m posting this here to clear out my drafts folder. I may expand on it later, but it’s just some data I wanted to look at. I’ve heard a lot of 2nd amendment, gun rights guys say that when you look at whites only, American gun death rates are […]

Repost of “Why I Hate Engineers”

Loved this article a while back but the blog seems to have been deleted–I hope the original author doesn’t mind, but I’m reposting this for my own reference.   https://web.archive.org/web/20150918042740/http://criminallyvu1gar.blogspot.com/2010/05/i-hate-engineers.html “Let me start by saying that I don’t hate any one group based solely on any sort of designation they may carry. That’s just stupid. […]

Intuitions for me but not for thee (Anti-Thomist tidbits)

Gunlord here, back again with a (somewhat) meatier entry for you today, my friends. We’re back to philosophy, judging questions of good and evil, and relating to my erstwhile foes, the Thomists–though in this case, the subject under discussion is an internet chat I participate in rather than any famous intellectuals like Edward Feser or […]

Living the Good Life, Episode 155 (May 16-22, 2021): A giant’s left us…

Was having an excellent week, but on Wednesday I and pretty much the entire world got a MASSIVE shot of bad news. The lowdown: Sunday: EPIC Day! A+++! First the weather was wonderful–warm, blue sky with puffy white clouds, a perfect summer day. Went out to Santora’s and enjoyed myself, but when I got home…w00t! […]

Thank you, Professor Miura

I don’t quite know how to start an entry like this. But I guess there’s noplace else to start than with the news. Kentaro Miura, author of Berserk, one of my very favorite manga–and objectively one of the most influential contemporary manga, period–has passed away. 【三浦建太郎先生 ご逝去の報】『ベルセルク』の作者である三浦建太郎先生が、2021年5月6日、急性大動脈解離のため、ご逝去されました。三浦先生の画業に最大の敬意と感謝を表しますとともに、心よりご冥福をお祈りいたします。2021年5月20日 株式会社白泉社 ヤングアニマル編集部 pic.twitter.com/baBBo4J2kL — ベルセルク公式ツイッター (@berserk_project) May 20, 2021 https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2021-05-19/berserk-manga-creator-kentarou-miura-passes-away-at-54/.172988 There’s […]
