My Hero


I found it on Pinterest. I've read it countless times and every one gives me goosebumps.

It is a beautiful, heroic adventure, told without words, except one, one key word, at the end.

(It does exist in print, as part of The Anthology Project: Volume 1, but there aren't many.)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, episode 3.20


"For gods sake man, she's 18, and you have the emotional maturity of a blueberry scone. Just have at it would you and stop fluttering about."

It's prom. It's an emotional story and people say nice things they wouldn't usually (bar Giles, above).

It's also 1999. Buff graduates in 1999.

This evening


A teeny, tiny story-like thing.

This evening, this little, nowhere, stick-sown lane, with the sun still bright on the layers of new beech leaves, and on the airborne insects caught in its beams, where the only sound is of robins and blackbirds and home-bound hounds baying... [continue]

Star Wars Day 2016


Happy Star Wars Day! May 4th be with you!

I'm going up a mountain and then I'm going to replay KOTOR in anticipation of new KOTOR. I don't think I've actually finished all the stories yet.

Captain America: Civil War (2016)



I could say so much. If you want more, this review from Geek & Sundry covers it gloriously.

The Big Bang Theory


This bugs me. I love all the things the boys love.* Doctor Who. Firefly. Buffy. Star Wars. Star Trek. Marvel. DC. Comics. Gaming. Etc. etc. Yet all the female characters consistently dismiss them. For a show celebrating things nerdy and geeky you'd think they'd occasionally let girls like it too.

*As do all of my friends.

Earth Day 2016


The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment, the Earth is where we make our stand.
