A World Without Ghosts

I wouldn't want to live in a world without ghosts. There may be no such thing in this world, but that there can be doubt makes the dull reality a little more magical. Too many people think science's job is to rob all mystery from the universe, to know all that is knowable. How horrible... Continue Reading →

The Post Con Blues

I've been to a number of conventions, some good, some bad, but I almost always end up with the post con blues.  I'm having them right now, a feeling like the world is a little less shiny, that tomorrow is back to a grind of doldrums and boring meetings.  The energy of the con is...

A New Hope

The world has become darker, more cynical and less fun than it was in the 1980s and 1970s.  Oh, sure, there were problems; oil shortages, hostages, Iran/Contra, but things didn't feel so dark and depressing.  These days you have politicians running on platforms of pure hatred and bigotry winning national elections, a 24 hour "news"...

Winter Sucks Huge Donkey Balls

I am officially sick of winter.  This year has been one of the worst in decades, with temperatures plunging below -10 degrees here.  And just as we get out of that, we get a foot of snow dumped on us.  My car isn't made for this weather, and I'm not either.  It almost makes me...

How to Fix Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Tomorrow night, the second half of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season one kicks off.  As a fan of Marvel comics in general and specifically of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), I really hope the show gets out of low gear and starts doing something with all of the potential it has.  So far the show...

Hating Women Characters is OK!

I've been reading some articles recently on I09 and elsewhere about how people hate certain female characters, and how it seems to be the "strong, independent" female characters people hate.  Examples are usually Skylar White from Breaking Bad or Lori Grimes from The Walking Dead.  There's a clear subtext that it's because of sexism, though...

On Writing Erotica

Recently I've dipped by toe into the pool of erotica, writing a series of stories set in a swinger club that I call, appropriately enough, Tales from the Club.  The stories aren't housed on wordpress - they contain very adult content, so I have them on a certain website that allows such things.  I won't...

Hospitals suck

I was recently in the hospital for heart related issues.  The hospital I went to somehow didn't have a proper cardiac care unit, so I had to be transferred, in the rain, in the middle of rush hour traffic.  My IV was put in improperly, and I was starved for a day and a half... Continue Reading →

The XBox 180

If you haven't heard, Microsoft is reversing its policies on the 24 hour check in necessary for the XBox One.  In the statement, they say that they will, of course, also have to scrap the great things they had plan that needed that connection, including the family plan that would let you share games between...

Remembering what’s important

I haven't been posting much, and for that I apologize.  My real job has been ridiculously busy.  But it's easy to forget what's important to you, and to sink into the groove (or is it a rut?) that's comfortable if not fulfilling. Today I remembered what I had forgotten.  I love to write.  I miss... Continue Reading →
