Book Review: The Count of Monte Cristo

I've been intrigued by this story for many years now. I first learned of it from the movie Sleepers (of which I wrote an earlier review for the book that the movie was based on. One of the main characters, Shakes becomes obsessed with the book about revenge after being placed into a reformatory with his childhood friends and enduring unthinkable acts of sexual abuse and violence. I later saw the latest movie adaptation, starring Jim Caviezel, with my wife on our first date about 10 years ago.

I'm just saying

It's beginning to seem more and more like I'm not wanted. At least in the capacity of a writer. A lot of people, mainly family mambers don't seem to appreciate my brand of "Guerilla Journalism" I'm not a tabloid, I'm a biographer. I tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. People can't seem to handle that. I'm not perfect and never judge anyone, but I do get tired of the same old bullshit. I'm not gonna overlook when your just straight shady, even if you are family. I know it's hard for people, especially my parents to understand. They might think it's sensationalism, but don't get it twisted, there is nothing sensational about the truths I tell.

The MVA is my frienemy [Revisited]

The saga continues. I wrote the following post in the early days of Ghettoblaster. It chronicles my lifelong struggle with the MVA. Murphy's Law always applies to me when it comes to the MVA, anything that can go wrong will go wrong. I'm bringing this one back because it happened to me again, and I need back story to prove that I'm not crazy.
