White Gold and White Gold Wielder (by Stephen R. Donaldson)

From Stephen R. Donaldson's 6th book in the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever Series.

Wild Magic, graven in every rock

Contained for white gold to unleash or control.

Gold, rare metal, not born of the Land.

Nor ruled, limited, subdued by the Law, with which the Land was created.

And white, White Gold, because white is the hue of bone, structure of flesh,

Discipline of life.


A good series, unlike any other I've read.

My and my wife's white gold wedding bands. 

Best quote from my favorite character in the second Chronicles (and he uttered very few words):

"It is not death. It is purpose. We will redeem the Earth from corruption." Vain--Demondim-spawn, created by the Ur-viles.

Burn Notice and Party in the CIA


While doing a little mental brainstorming for a potential new Dane Maddock Adventure to be co-written with David Wood, where I let my mind drift my thoughts went to Burn Notice, one of my favorite series, as well as a Weird Al song, Party in the CIA.

Okay, if you're familiar with Burn Notice, and the Weird Al song, you might get the connection. I am not sure the the starring character of Burn Notice, Michael Weston, would appreciate the song, but I bet Sam Axe (one of his cohorts) would have a good laugh. Am I wrong?

Here are some vid clips of Burn Notice (Intro) and Party in the CIA. See what you think.
