Have you ever heard of her? I haven’t. At least not until today. I guess, a few days ago, she made a rather interesting blog post about Islam. You can read the thing in its entirety here, if you want. But, I’ll give you the basic rundown. Essentially, she states that we have bent over … Continue reading “Elizabeth Moon…”
Okay, so I finished it. And I’m left a little unsatisfied. Don’t get me wrong: The prose was solid and the ideas were terrific. But, it was almost too thick to really get to the meat of the story. Now, I’ll be the first to admit I’m not very smart. I’m really an idiot, when … Continue reading “How to Live Safely in a Science-Fiction Universe”
I know Douglas Adams already did a depressed robot. So, it’s certainly not the first time it’s been done. But, I still have to say it: Tammy, the A.I. with low self-esteem, from How to Live Safely in a Science-Fiction Universe, may be one of the funniest characters ever created.
It’s been a while since I talked about books I didn’t write. Over the past few months, I’ve read a number of them. Here’s a rundown. The Passage by Justin Cronin – Post-apocalyptic vampire story.

In what can only be considered a desire to return to the 90’s (Kiss From a Rose for the win) I’ve found myself spending hours upon hours in pseudo-3d, pixelated goodness. A few … Continue reading “Hmm. Stuff…”
The ApologetiX! They’re a Christian parody band that has spent the past 20 years releasing albums full of secular songs rewritten with Christian lyrics. This shit is amazing. I’m not even being sarcastic here. I mean every word. And I’ll tell you why… because it takes some real stones to rewrite Paradise City by GnR … Continue reading “I have a new obsession…”
Sometimes, when I think about how I want to die, I imagine a scene at sunset, myself lying on the roof of some skyscraper, in some random city. I can’t even think straight, my mind shot from countless amounts of booze. And as I turn to my right, I see a girl in my arms–a … Continue reading “My Perfect Death”
On this day, June 18th, in the U.S. vs. Slovenija World Cup soccer game, a ref robbed us and took off with our pants. I call for an immediate bombing of Mali, the ref’s country of origin.
For the past two days, my iPod has been stuck on Sam’s Town by The Killers. I don’t even know why. But, there are some pretty tight grooves on this album. And the melody lines are dang catchy.
