  2. Eclectic amalgam. Nice. Is the “Lock up your libraries…” quote yours?

  3. Thanks for citing the source. No mortal sin there. At times, I get lax and don’t always attribute. So shoot me. 🙂

    Curious, are there any downsides to potentially over-consuming?

    • No problem! Happy to help.

      It’s interesting that you’d raise that point, actually; I just wrote a post defending my heavy consumption of entertainment materials here (https://coryhersh.com/2013/07/24/why-i-consume-so-much-entertainment/). Though I stand by what I’ve said there, I think one of the potential drawbacks to reading/watching a lot of fiction is the eventual cynicism toward sub-par works. Call it losing your sense of wonder toward creative pieces: something needs to be drop-dead amazing for you to take notice. All of the books and movies that are merely good barely register with you in the long run. It’s something I struggle with, that constant comparison to things better and bolder.
