Ahhh, the benefits of being a genius. No, not ME. Owen. As a writer, I was wondering just how he was going to pull that off without me just GIVING it to him. He figured it out on his own. Then he told me, and I wrote it. I love it when a plan comes together.

BTW, There are only a few pages left in the story.

Wraith: MIA

A few weeks ago I removed the scifi story “Wraith” from the Library.

Regular visitors probably haven’t noticed, since they’ve probably read the story already. New visitors probably figured the non-functioning link was a mistake.

It isn’t.

Too Much of a Good Thing

The wife is off visiting her mother, so I’ve had the house completely to myself for most of the day.

It just so happens that I’ve recently come into possession of a large number of H.P. Lovecraft stories in audio format. Some are dramatizations; others are standard audiobooks. So I loaded up iTunes and spend nearly the ENTIRE day enjoying some really good stories.

…just recently, I finally took the headphones off. It’s dark outside. The house is empty and totally silent except for the whirring of my computer. No TV. No radio. No background noise of any kind. Even the neighbor’s annoying dogs are suspiciously quiet. Before I realized what I was doing, I had spent a good 15 minutes wandering the first floor of the house, peeking out of random windows while trying to mentally account for every single gun, bullet, and knife that I own.

…man… THOSE are some good stories!

For Future Reference:

When you sprain your ankle and they put one of those fiberglass splints on it, they tell you not to get it wet.

Well, “Don’t Get It Wet” actually means:

Don’t get it wet or it will bond to your flesh and become a permanent part of your body requiring power tools to remove.

Knowing is half the battle.

…no, I did not sprain my ankle. My wife is now a cyborg. Fear her. I sure do.

Review: Watchmen

A while back, I posted about my belief that the upcoming Watchmen movie would be the best movie ever made. Obviously that was an intentional overstatement for humorous effect, but it DID believe that it would, without a doubt, be the best comic-based movie ever made.

Now that I’ve seen the movie, I realize I’ve either got some explaining to do or some crow to eat.
