I’m Erik Charter, a middle-aged, midwestern guy who likes to post stuff dealing with books, movies, music, and a bit of theology & other stuff. The main reason I post stuff is so that I can actually throw away some of the newspaper clippings & magazine articles that I would otherwise accumulate indefinitely. I live in a van down by the river, rarely shower, and consider deodorant to be optional, which cuts down on those pesky social interactions. I am a member of and inactive elder in a United Reformed Churches in North America (URCNA) church.
