Del Toro made a lot of weird decisions there. We didn't see the brother die in the Drift, "Drift compatibility" is never really explained or has its rules observed, and creeper Pentecost has apparently been carrying around a little girl's shoe all this time. The dialog was pretty b...

Saw it. Loved it. The character bits get close to melodramatic, though.

Sounds like Greece has gone completely nuts. [url]http://www.2ndcouncilhouse.co.uk/blog/2013/06/05/and-then-they-came-for-the-trans-people/ If I lived in Greece and had any sense of national pride, I'd be calling for people to grab a gas can and find a cop car. But after a couple years of econo...

If a bunch of other people notice it and it ain't just your brain going crazy, they'll talk about it. More MegasXLR dvds will be sold, making you more monies. It'll briefly revive interest in your intellectual property. So, definitely a good thing? Edit: Oh. He doesn't have the right...

I wrote one where she evolved into a living computer, activated all of her clones at the same time and shared a crude form of telepathy with them because they all thought exactly the same way.

Rascal the Raccoon. Why? Because it lead to nearly 80% of Japanese temples being damaged by fancyfuck imported raccoon.

Well, someone just got a 3D printed gun within 10 meters of the Israeli prime minister. I guess that steel plate was removable after all, huh?

Liberal Arts education in general is a bad idea. Yeah, my Creative Writing, Rhetoric and Discourse, and East Asian Languages triple major have done me a TON of favors.

A similar "horrible" was described re: Google Glass. Guy walks about, minding his own business inasmuch as you can when you're passively recording everything you see. He stumbles across an obvious minor being raped. The raper laughs, knowing Mr. Glass will not report it because by view...

Its all alleged until someone says you are guilty. I don't remember if the guy was accused of accessing the images (all numeric randoms, so probably from an imageboard), or if the images had been found on his computer. If they were found on his computer, I don't know where on his com...

Asked to read an indictment for alleged possession of child pornography today. I've always been fascinated/afraid of that law; its pretty much strict liability, and your life is totally destroyed when you're accused of it. The activity of searching for porn now describes the shortest distanc...

I guess the other piece of advice is to take the "Wool" approach; take a book (60, 70k words), cut it into thirds, stagger the release of each by two weeks, give the first installment away, sell the next two installments for 99cents. Write two other installments and sell for 99cent...
