  1. The Canadian Charmer vs. The Piercing Portuguese in VA pt. 1

    So I made the pleasant drive out to Charlottesville for the finals of the 10th Annual Boyd Tinsley Clay Court Classic Women's ITF Challenger (Mr. Tinsley was there, which was cool...though I've never been a Dave Matthews Band guy...but he was a great speaker during the post-match ceremonies - very charming). The singles final was being contested between Canada's Stephanie Dubois and Portugal's Michelle Larcher de Brito. When I went out there, I only knew who the 4 players in the SF were, but not ...

  2. Aedra's top 100 favorite classic movies: #100-51

    Several of our fellow TATeurs who have previously posted lists of their favorite movies inspired me to try and compile my own list. I fully admit I'm obsessed with old movies, which started when I was about 13 years old with a movie that is my top 10, so I won't say what that movie is yet. I've seen more than I can count (and I have tried to count but I've given up that huge task for the time being). I'm always looking for new classics, so if anyone has recommendations, please tell me! ...

  4. On Love and The Devil. Part IV

    They sat there for a while longer, the day leaving from under their feet, rolling away with the water of the river.
    -We are such strange creatures- the old man said.
    -Why?-
    -Well, we are so majestic at times, like when you sold your soul for her love. How much in love you must have been with her, how much sincerity Satan must have heard in your voice that he did appear and took your word for it. And then, after a while, how low do we fall down to, how we bring ourselves to ...

  5. On love and the devil. Part III

    Late in Fall, so many months after. Be careful of what you want... Sitting on a bench, looking at the bridge crossing the river, looking far away into the opposite shore, wondering what had happened. How he had sold his soul for a love that had vanished, disappeared, gone. A love that had burnt itself out of combustion in a few months, a love that had starved itself to death. A love that carried him for weeks, for a few months. The devil had kept his side of the deal; by god!, how she loved ...
