Acronyms, and Zebras, and Quarter Billions
Hah.. remember how I've mentioned that my cancer was not only incredibly rare in and of itself, but that I had an incredibly rare form of it (which is one reason why it took years to get a diagnosis)? Well, today I was looking up some of the long term side ...

Stop Calling Government Regulation Net Neutrality
Stop using "net neutrality" to refer to government regulation of the internet.  That's not what net neutrality is, and it's certainly not what the government regulations promulgated by the FCC today are, in this case "Common Carrier Rules". People who don't...

Lucky Man Blues
There are many ways that I was lucky growing up. My house was always full of music, as was my grandparents house (where I lived from 2 to 5, and then summers until I was 16). My mother and grandfather both prefered to work with music on when they could, and...

Why not use a TV as a monitor?
So, large screen LED backlit LCD televisions are amazing. They look great, and they've become quite affordable over the past few years. Large computer monitors on the other hand, are still really expensive... Though the definition of "large" has changed ove...

Moving Towards Post Scarcity
If you want a world where no-one is poor, or hungry, or suffers... It's impossible. However, a world where poverty and hunger are rare is entirely possible. In fact, we could do it right now, today. ... Though not through the means that most of those who lo...

Patrick Day
I have repeated my basic statements on this day for the last few years, and since it's still what I want people to know about today, and what I want to say about today. I see no reason to change the practice this year. Nations I love my country and my count...

Creators Are People Too
For many people who are not serious con-goers, or who don't go to a lot of live music shows, or who don't participate very much in the "author" or "independent/genre flim/tv" or "independent musician" regions of social media; the people who create the art t...

Quality Price Floors, Globalization, and the Harmful Notion of "Just a Red Dot"
I get this question or hear this comment all the time... People think they're going to  "save money on their optics" with "just a red dot". Unfortunately, that's a very harmful idea. There is no such thing as "just a red dot"  Yeah, sure, you absolutely can...

Guitar Heresy: PA speakers are Better than Cabs
If you really want to know how your amplifier, your guitar, or your bass sound; don't use a guitar or bass cab. Instead, use a high quality full range PA speaker of appropriate impedance for your amp. Wait what? Ayup, really, a high quality full range PA sp...

Sons, and Fathers, and Bleeding Fingers
As I was finishing college, my father, whom I hadn't seen or heard from for 15 years (most of which time he was in prison) contacted me. He had been out of prison a couple years, and was now off of parole and a free man... And he wanted to know... Would I p...

The random mumblings of a muscular minarchist
Introduction
I am a cynically romantic optimistic pessimist. I'm neither liberal, nor conservative; I'm a muscular minarchist.

Basically, what that means is; I believe that all things being equal, responsible adults should be able to do what they want providing nobody's getting hurt who isn't payin extra (or asking nicely).
