Caprica Canceled? It's The SyFy Network That Should Be Canceled

I just read that one of my favorite television shows, “Caprica”, has been canceled after one season “due to low ratings”. It’s no real surprise. The morons at the SyFy network couldn’t have made its success more difficult to achieve if they had intentionally been trying to do so. The show aired on January 22, […]

Splitting The Atom (One Song At A Time)

You may have noticed that our music player on the web site has recently been stripped of most of its tunes. There’s a reason for this. Simply put, we’ve been busy as mad scientists around here, and have so fundamentally reinvented the proverbial wheel that we feel like we’re taking a completely new approach to […]

NPR received a bomb threat Monday, five days after its decision to fire news analyst Juan Williams sparked a hugely negative reaction. Sources at the news organization said the threat was received via U.S. mail and was immediately turned over to local police and the FBI. The organization did not publicly disclose the threat or […]

Rand Paul Supporter Stomps On Woman

Last week Tea Party candidate Joe Miller’s security guards forcibly detained and handcuffed a reporter, to surprisingly little political fall-out in the mainstream media (so much for it being controlled by Liberals). I wondered then if this was just an opening shot, if things were going to be getting much, much worse as the election […]

Return Of The SGX-2000

My band, Windhaven, is recording an album, so I thought it would make sense to finally get my ART SGX-2000 back up and running. The only thing that’s been wrong with it has been that the pots were so dirty that the unit was practically unusable. There was just no way to make those fine-tuned […]

Fox News Gives Juan Williams $2 Million Contract

NPR is facing sharp criticism (mostly from Fox News) for terminating the contract of News analyst Juan Williams. The network fired him Wednesday for violating its ethics policy over comments he made on Fox News about Muslims. But those comments — and NPR’s response — have prompted questions about where the boundaries are drawn for […]

A Human Being

In shadowlands dance I with skulls for bells fingerbones for toothpicks choking life from the sinew ambrosia from the mildew and purpose from coincidence, laughing as desperate hands claw at my trouser cuffs, raw in this dystopian illusion where for a moment it seemed the ether would coalesce and somehow become… a human being. In […]

NPR Fires Juan Williams: Misplaced Indignation Follows

When I learned this morning that NPR had fired analyst Juan Williams for comments made on Bill O’Reilly’s show, the only thing that surprised me about it was the outpouring of indignation on NPR’s Facebook page. Here you have a news analyst who is employed by an organization that is, perhaps, the last real, living, […]
