Half Century

| September 1, 2016

Yep, I hit the big 50 today and pretty much the most exciting thing I did today so far was renew my plates and driver’s license. Now I need to dig up that AARP card they sent me.

Why I filter my comments. . .

| January 20, 2011

I had really nice comment today on my latest blog post: “With your ability, certainly you have learned praises before but I just want to involve to the many who have thanked you for what you’ve attained. Your work are one of a kind and show great insight. Thanks for your contributions!” I almost approved […]

Internet randomness and cover design.

| December 15, 2008

This post shows up in my RSS feed, which takes me over here, where one of the first links leads me over to this thread of awesomness.  Here’s the concept: Take random Wikipedia article, feed the subject into the LIFE photo archive and pick a picture, the article is your book title, the image is […]

Twinkle twinkle little star

| April 24, 2008

ADDENDUM: Charlie Stross gets in on the act. God do I love Scalzi’s posts sometimes. Before I get into details, I should point out the origin of this meme in the actions of one asshat extrordinaire, Deborah MacGillivray who engaged in gaming the Amazon.com review system, mobilizing internet stormtroopers to vote down and report negative […]

Meme Ahoy!

| December 9, 2007

Caught this from Maureen McHugh’s blog.Meme: Post the first line of your first journal entry of each month for 2007. (One thing strikes me doing this, how quickly Wolfbreed went from idea to sale.) January, I’m Back. . . And actually moderating comments. February, New Blogger Well, I just spent a good two hours updating […]

Eddie Vader Lego

Everyone’s doing it. . .SF Signal, Big Dumb Object, Whatever. . .. . . so I have to post it too. Eddie Izzard, Lego, Darth Vader. Just to be different, here’s a bonus Eddie Izzard Lego video about movies. (Bet you didn’t know that was an actual subgenre) Warning, language not work safe.

Title Blender Meme

| May 29, 2007

I’ve caught another meme from the SF Signal Blog (patient zero for the meme being Literary Compass) The idea is to blend two book titles together by using the last word of one title and the first word of the second title. If you want, you can blend the authors’ names too. Here’re my books: […]

This Blog’s First Meme

| February 18, 2007

I picked up this meme, it might be a little stale, but it is a cool idea: This is a list of the 50 “most significant” science fiction/fantasy novels, 1953-2002, according to the Science Fiction Book Club. Bold the ones you’ve read, strike-out the ones you hated, italicize those you started but never finished, and […]
