Spent my last ten dollars on blogwatching and beer; My life was so much simpler when I was sober and queer...[Trying out cool blockquotes, pointed out by Krubner.

TOMORROW IS YESTERDAY: Decent basic piece linking Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and In the Shadow of No Towers as expressions of nostalgia for early 20th-century visions of the future. The piece starts wandering and wobbling by the end, and some of it is silly, but this topic fascinates me so I figured I'd pass it on. Via Hit & Run. … [Read more...]

THE EMERGING GIANT PLANETARY BRAIN: If by "purpose," you mean "thing that lots of its actions usually do," and by "design" you mean "mindless process," then this article makes sense. Grrr. Why do people let their metaphors eat their metaphysics?!In related news, a friend wrote in with a question about this post (and the ones that follow). But I just checked my inbox and found that I seem to have deleted the $#@! email with his question. I'll summarize as best I remember it. Gene, if I get this … [Read more...]

"ODYSSEUS'S SCAR": THEY WOULD KILL YOU IF THEY KNEW. The new section of the current short story. (I ran out of Roethke taglines.) In which David talks politics, Justin talks shop, and we see the discontents of peacetime. This story contains many, many things that are barred by the Comics Code Authority and the Legion of Decency. Do not read while operating heavy machinery. Close cover before striking. This bag is not a toy.Here for story so far; here for most recent section. I think there's … [Read more...]
