About Me

My photo

Armchair theorist, poet, and occasional IT manager, Sascha B. is equipped with a Master's Degree in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Texas, and is not afraid to use it. His work has been published by the University Press of America, Edwin Mellen Press, University of Texas Press, and a variety of small journals nationwide. He is also the proprietor and baker for 3141 Pie, of which you should eat many.

The Deal

I stopped blogging in 2013, when life overtook me. My father became ill and died shortly thereafter, and my mother was left with increasing dementia. I became the primary caregiver, and now orchestrate my mother's care and our family estate.

Now, I am coming up for air again.

Looking for the next book to read. All suggestions welcome.

My reading list is over here.

Coolest. Music Video. Ever.

OK Go has a new interactive video out that is built entirely on the new HTML5 web standard, and it is genius. It only works in the Chrome Browser, so fire up chrome and go here to watch and hear one of my favorite pop bands do something amazing. Seriously. In comparison, just watching it normally (below) is like eating soup with a fork.
