What a great analysis of post-1977 fantasy and sci-fi culture.
A while back, a friend expressed concern that her son, a ten-year old, was watching too much My Little Pony....

We almost never post about events here, as this is a small blog with infrequent posts. But right now in London, The Honorable Artillery Company, the oldest artillery regiment in the country, is staging an event in East London. They have soldiers doing drills, a parachute drop, a chinook helicopter, and at least one howitzer. And this weekend is something even more special. If you are in London between May 15 and 17, you can go see th...

Keith has nailed it again. This might explain why Mike Piazza didn't kill Roger Clemens, as he should have, in October 2000.

Finding quality pizza in Manhattan is more difficult than it appears. This is my favorite pizzeria in Manhattan. The sauce is great. The slices are consistently good. And did you know that this is a magicians hangout on Saturday afternoons? I cannot recommend this place enough for midtown pizza.

One of the best pizzas in the borough. I was a loyal customer for over 10 years, and it is still great ten years later. A neighborhood staple.

Best pizza in the Caribbean. Actually it might be the best bar pizza anywhere. And it's my favorite open air bar in the world.

Aside from Watkins Glen, this is the only other classic road racing track in the northeast. It's location in the Connecticut Berkshires is an added bonus. SCCA events at Lime Rock are about as pure as racing can get. It's always a lovely place to spend the day.

Legends is the cathedral of football in Mahhattan. Jack Keane is a living legend. Pick a side, join a supporter's club, and get to Legends every week and see why the beautiful game is simply superior to every other spectator sport.

My partner and I decided long ago to visit Vieques every June. The question for 2010 was which hotel would we choose now that the Martineu resort has become the overpriced W Retreat. We decided to try a smaller hotel or bed and breakfast this time around. We looked at many establishments, including Hacienda Tamarindo, Hector’s By The Sea, Casa de Amistad, and even a few new houses for rent. Our list of necessary amenities was short. We needed a parking lot for our rented Jeep plus a swimming pool. Everything else would be decided by price and location. We preferred a contemporary or recently renovated building. We knew going in that getting a room with real blinds or curtains was not likely, as the tradition in Vieques seems to be ‘wake up with the sun’ (which can be a good thing if you want to be on a sunny beach before noon). We also knew that while it would be nice to stay someplace close to the strip of bars and restaurants in Esperanza, nighttime noise could be an issue there. We simply wouldn't know until we slept there. Malecon House won our business. Marsha and Robin Shepherd were faster and more detailed in their responses to our inquiries. The reviews at Trip Advisor were nearly all stellar. And the rooms at Malecon were contemporary and very good looking, most with terraces and varying amounts of privacy. And we've returned to it year after year. Four years running now, and we won't stop. We have stayed in the following rooms: Tropico, Fantastico, Buena Vista, and Rey. But the room that has won us over for future visits is the Mar Azul. A big, bright room, with balcony, and room darkening curtains to maximize sleep. All the rooms are excellent, but we think Mar Azul is the best. Malecon house, like many properties in Vieques, heats and stores its hot water on the roof using solar panels and steel water tanks. Hot water can take a few minutes to reach the shower, but it is quite plentiful and extremely hot. There is no tub in any room, however. The pool is not large, but very well maintained. It has a deck with lounge chairs and a handy shower that we used to wash our feet and sandals after each visit to the beaches. The Shepherds are outstanding. Their staff prepare a small breakfast (coffee, tea, cereal, milk, OJ, & either muffins or scones) from 07:00 to 09:00. They provide as many towels as you need for the room and the beach. They offer beach chairs for you to borrow as long as you like. And they can be your concierge, arranging restaurant and/or tour reservations for you. The front desk has a netbook which is free to use, as well as a small Wi-Fi hotspot that you can tap into in front of the property where breakfast is served. It's not broadband speed, but adequate for checking email or researching destinations on the island. Malecon house is perfectly located on the quieter, west end of the strip of bars and restaurants in Esperanza. The Green Market is a short walk away, for snacks and beverages. Lazy Jack's Pub is just three doors down the street. The house has a gated parking lot, which prevents non guests from parking there. We couldn't be happier with the location. Noise from the bars can be heard from the street facing rooms on weekends, but generally, the property is away from the nosiest establishments, and all is usually quiet by 1am. We won't stop staying here every June, and we continue to recommend Malecon House to every future Vieques visitor who finds our reviews online.
