So, the reviews are a new thing? Are they going to stay? What is this craziness?

These are some questions you might be asking yourself. Fear not, for I bring you tidings of additional content. Like most of us, I consume a fair amount of media, though not as much as some. And when I find something genuinely worthwhile–perhaps something I think might get overlooked, or be of interest to readers of the site, or that I found thought provoking and wanted to ruminate on–it is my goal to highlight it here. As long as I have my little patch of the internet, I might as well put it to work.

It is my goal to be generally positive in reviewing. Things that I dislike I stop wasting my time on well before finishing, and prefer to forget as soon as possible. Beyond that, negativity has a pervasive, deleterious effect, and even if the target of my ire is discrete, the mood it provokes is not. Life is too short to dwell on the bad; far better to emphasize the good. As they say in the song, “Don’t mention his name, and his name will pass on.”

Also, you may notice said reviews peppered with little links allowing you to go buy the featured product from Powell’s or (*twitch*) Amazon. Follow or don’t, as you feel moved to. They are provided for convenience’s sake, and if they help offset the costs of the site, then that’s a nice little bonus.
