    I am so stoked for this.

    [February] What are you watching?

    I've been rewatching ST:TNG. I finished season 1 and will be starting up season 2 shortly. Many of these episodes I haven't seen since they debuted back in the day. Many times I've had to ask myself how they were greenlit past s1. There are some good moments, but a lot of the episodes...

    [February] What are you reading?

    I'm wrapping up Kraken by China Mieville. As long as it doesn't go off the rails in the last 50 pages, I'd give it 4/5, another winner from Mieville. Next up is Storm Front by Jim Butcher. I haven't read any of the Dresden Files so I'm looking forward to finally getting in.

    Amazon considers raising Prime subscription fee by up to $40

    There was a good article on Slate the other day about Amazon's business strategy.

    Under the Skin trailer (or Scralett Johansson has a sexual predator alien)

    Interesting. This is the first I've heard of it.

    NASA sued because it failed to investigate alien life

    It's a conspiracy and I'm glad someone is finally standing up to the Commies at NASA. Maybe he can get some answers on that whole "Moon landing" thing while he's at it.

    Songs ruined

    Girls are good for that sort of thing. My oldest daughter is good for running good songs into the ground with her non-stop playing and singing of them.

    [January] What are you reading?

    I'm about 200 pages in and loving it, but I have yet to read anything by Mieville that I didn't like.

    Songs ruined

    80s music can do that, says a fan of 80s music. Bring on the sick synth lines! :lol:

    Songs ruined

    Late 70s? That album came out in '81.

    [January] What are you reading?

    This month I've read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Phillip K. Dick, The Religion by Tim Willocks, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, and The Dogs of Babel by Carolyn Parkhurst. Currently I'm reading Kraken by China Mieville.

    Google's smart contact lenses

    My understanding is that the biggest hurdle at this point is ensuring that glucose levels checked in tears are as accurate as those checked with blood. If they can overcome that, then I'm sure that many diabetics will be very excited to try this out.

    Original Star Wars actors to take center stage in new movie

    Despite some quibbles, I mostly enjoyed the first Trek film. I thought it laid the groundwork for an interesting new spin on things and as others have mentioned, the casting was phenomenal. The whole thing went badly off the rails, though, with Into Darkness. It was just...bad. As an enormous...

    Disney buying Lucasfilm for $4 billion! More Star Wars movies coming!

    If I had to wager money, I'd say that the new movies will take place a generation or two after RotJ. Some of the original actors will have minor roles introducing and sending off the new characters. There will be some inspiration from the EU, but it will mostly be new stuff. I'm rather neutral...

    XP titles - possible revamp?

    That sounds like you're begging for something especially uncool. ;)

    [June] What Are You Reading?

    The Hyperion Cantos are some of my favorite sci-fi books. Hyperion is definitely the strongest, but the rest are very good as well. Simmons has become one of my favorite authors.

    Insight's "Against the Witch King" - OOC

    I'm gonna have to back out. I'm just way to busy with things right now to commit to this. Sorry.

    The one guy who had Earth's coordinates accidentally erased the file and he hadn't done a backup in awhile.

    IC Game [Pathfinder] Diabolical Plots

    "Warn others? We have no notion whether there are others or not." Talys asked. "I would be more concerned about stumbling around in this place that none of us are familiar with." He took a deep breath and looked around at the others. "Caution is called for here, not wanton recklessness."...
