Petshark: Talking Stick
Entries with the tag: critics
“Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.”
I once had a professor explain the difference between criticism and criticising. The first is an attentive analysis of the work, the second is just saying mean things. Obviously that's not how he put it, but it works. At times like these, the lines blur. I tried to watch the Sharks play in Dallas without judging. I started out okay, but I couldn't hold the line:
Couture from second line center to top line winger. Marleau and Pavelski to the second line. Gomez from healthy scratch to second line center. Kennedy from third line to fourth, Desi back to center, Burish back to the wing. What a difference some badly-timed roughhousing makes.
Okay, I shouldn't count the Kennedy move as a result of Clowe being out. That was probably just Sheppard returning to his rightful place on the only line that McLellan didn't dismantle.
