Ebola – A Case for Collectivism

The big news this week is that finally, at long last, an actual case of ebola has made its way to America. The “doomsday” scenario of countless movies and books has come to pass and the news media has been gleefully shitting its pants ever since. Their attempts to spread fear and despair have so […]

Why do Dead Dogs Matter More than Battered Women to the NFL?

Unless you’ve been under a rock the last three days, you’ve probably seen the video of Ray Rice smacking the ever-living shit out of his then-fiancee in a casino elevator. Even if you aren’t into football, you have probably been exposed to this sordid story of domestic violence and corporate ineptitude. It highlights a major problem […]

My Encounter with a Bat… IN MY HOUSE

Have you ever experienced the sheer animal terror of discovering that there’s a bat in your house? I have now. I’m getting ready for bed last night, my wife is out of town on a trip so it’s just me and the dogs. I get the dogs shuttled into the bedroom with the door closed […]

Another Mass Killing – Another Wrong-headed Debate

In the aftermath of yet another of the all-too-regular tragedies we seem to have in this country, the Internet and various mass media outlets are engaging in yet another debate. I’m speaking of course about the horrible deaths of seven in Santa Barbara by Elliot Rodger. I’ve barely been involved with news media this holiday weekend, […]

Web site for my new series is live!

It’s been nine months since I released The Long and the Short Swords and announced that I’d be taking a hiatus from the Bridge Chronicles. Now, I’m finally able to announce what I’ve been working on – The Stepping Stone Cycle. To celebrate the upcoming release of the first novella in my new cosmic horror […]

Vote for my remix on Indaba Music

I’ve recently submitted a remix for a contest on Indaba Music, the indie music/remixing site. How to Destroy Angels is Trent Reznor’s post-Nine Inch Nails project. When I saw that they were offering three tracks for remixing opportunities, I jumped at the chance. I’ve always loved Reznor’s music and remixing a track sounded like fun. […]

Into Familiarity – Star Trek Into Darkness Movie Review

While I am a lifelong fan of the original Star Trek TV series and movies, as well as an occasional viewer of the spinoffs up until the abortion that was Voyager, I could never claim to be a Trekkie of any sort. I am, however, well-versed in the lore and hold the adventures of Captain […]

Does Not Compute: Square Enix Sells Millions, Fires President

Sometimes the video game industry just refuses to make any sort of goddamn sense. Case in point: Square Enix noted “weak sales” of some of its releases for the last fiscal year as reasons for firing their president and “restructuring.” Now, normally the words “restructuring” means a lot of peons will lose their jobs for […]

Gun Control Debate

I’ve been contemplating this post for a while, ever since the gun control debate came to the forefront of the national political conversation in the wake of the Newton school shooting. Unfortunately, I’ve been too busy to blog but now seems as good a time as any to discuss it. After all, opponents of gun […]

Mitt Romney doesn’t understand government or gifts

Last week Americans voted, and I’m glad to say that at least 51% of us still had some concept of the proper role of government. There has been much hemming and hawing from the right-wing side of the country (the sore losers) and a little too much gloat-filled crowing from the left wing side of […]
