Stargate Worlds

[This paragraph has been deleted due to a request to do so by Stargate Worlds, which alleges that I violated the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) by writing about it. This paragraph pertained to the game and beta testing, and its removal satisfies the NDA, in my opinion. I will, of course, squeal loudly if there’s any… Continue reading Stargate Worlds

Happy Birthday, Justin

We’re about to watch a movie, so I’m shutting down for the evening. I just wanted to drop one last note and wish my little brother, Justin, a Happy Birthday. He’s inching ever closer to 40 (no, I’m not going to say how much closer). I’ve written Justin today and wished him Happy Birthday, but… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Justin

Happy Birthday, Justin

We’re about to watch The Blair Witch Project. Willingly, yes. That’s the great thing about having the entertainment system of the gods. Every time you watch something you’ve seen before, it’s like watching it for the first time again. Victoria’s rounded up some horror movies for us to watch through this month and up until… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Justin

America's Financial Meltdown

I’ve been watching the meltdown in the financial markets, and I have to admit that I’m worried about it. Not that I’m an economist or anything. I don’t have a firm grasp of what triggered what, but from what I’ve seen, there’s no need to worry that this is a meltdown on the scale of… Continue reading America's Financial Meltdown

Yes for $5.00

I’m packing up seven CDs by Yes to ship off to a gentleman who won the set for $5.00 on my eBay store. He got it for that because I was a dumbass and didn’t monitor the auction. Otherwise I would have never have let it go for that. I would’ve gotten Victoria to outbid… Continue reading Yes for $5.00

The Cult of The Gold Chartreuse

I wound up scouring the Internet for informatino about various substances today. I don’t why. First I was surprised to find that my favorite mixed drink, the B-52, has a page on Wikipedia. I wish some of the half-assed bartenders I’ve wrangled with in various bars would go take a peek at the page and,… Continue reading The Cult of The Gold Chartreuse

John McCain’s Bogus Change: Learn to Identify the Double-Speak

Jonathan Alter is quickly becoming one of my favorite people. I came across another recent article by him about John McCain’s laughable claims to be an agent of change. McCain is trying to steal the “change” mantle from Barack Obama, without any evidence to support his claims. Jonathan Alter got to the meat of the… Continue reading John McCain’s Bogus Change: Learn to Identify the Double-Speak

The Republican Party Is Working Hard to Suppress the Black Vote

I came across a Newsweek article that greatly annoyed me, because this sort of thing has been going on for years now. The Republican Party’s efforts to suppress the black vote in Ohio in 2004 was largely successful, and their shenanigans in Florida in 2000 are legendary. Well, they’re at it again. I’ll quote some… Continue reading The Republican Party Is Working Hard to Suppress the Black Vote

Lizards vs Cats

I did my good deed for the day. Living in Florida, we sort of share our space with the lizards and salamanders who sometimes make their way into the house. Well, one fine little fellow was discovered hanging out on the ceiling in the living room this morning, apparently feeling quite safe from the five… Continue reading Lizards vs Cats

Re: Looking at the Bigger Picture, Which Some People Can’t Actually See

I got an e-mail today from a gentleman named Marcos. At first I dismissed it. More of the same. Republican talking points. Bits of wisdom from the Kool-Aid afflicted. But for some reason I decided to jot off an answer. Somehow that answer turned into a weighty tome. Initially I was going to simply reply… Continue reading Re: Looking at the Bigger Picture, Which Some People Can’t Actually See
