"Blogburst" That's a new one by me.

Anywho, Judith at Kesher Talk is issuing one. Read her post, I don't pretend to know enough about the topic at hand to be able to explain it fully.

Actually, pretty much everything I know about the destruction of the first two Jewish Temples and the creation of the third comes form Joel Rosenberg's action novel "The Last Days". I think the author is Jewish, but being as it is a Clancy-style political thriller, it isn't exactly an authoritative source. (Actually, if there is anyone out there who has read the book and actualy knows what they're talking about, put me in some information here.)

My complete and total ignorance has never stopped me from writing about a subject before, though. I have to do at least some research, but this is an area that would be greatly served through further examination in the general public, fictional and nonfictional, from Believers and Non-Believers. I would like to write a piece of short fiction around the event, if I have an opportunity, and alot of the other more talented writers around the blogosphere should at least look into it. It is both filled with potential material and a current, relevant event, making it ripe material for fictional examinations from several points of view.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
