It's the 35th anniversary of the classic sci-fi horror, Alien

As a tribute to the film, the Poster Posse has produced a series of new images in the form of movie posters. Many of them are available to purchase as a print. If you're a fan of the original Alien film, you'll enjoy these ツ

Shark attacks, red shirts and statistics
Turns out it's not as dangerous to wear a red shirt on Star Trek as most people believe. (short video - 6:48)

Thanks to everyone for helping, Beau is safe for now

I'm from Memphis (my parents still live there) and I've actually talked to the attorney in this case. It turns out that there was never any evidence presented that the dog killed a duck or threatened a child. It appears that it was all hearsay created when the dog tried to avoid being captured by strangers. On top of that, the city has spent thousands of dollars fighting this in court. This seems like a perfectly legitimate outrage of a story to me. And apparently the judge in the case agreed once all the facts were presented. The dog's execution has been stayed until the case can be heard by the State Appeals court. Here's the latest update :

This is ridiculous. Help save Beau the Dog.
A dog with no prior history of aggression or biting is about to be put down because he killed a duck that wandered onto his property. This is nuts.

Baracus the White-Chest Dachshund... sung by me!

I will probably live to regret doing this, but my wife and children convinced me to record myself singing (a cappella) for an audio-enabled version of my children's picture book, Baracus the White-Chest Dachshund. The book is only available as an interactive audio picture book on the Apple iBooks Store. But if you have an iDevice (iPad, iPhone or iTouch), you can hear me sing the bedtime story I actually sing to my children at night during the holidays. If you want an entertaining source of Christmas cheer (and possibly a source of great humor), give it a try. I promise it won't shatter glass, or your eardrums. Be sure to leave me an embarrassing comment after you've listened. My family is counting on you to help them keep me red-faced this whole holiday season ツ

This is perhaps the nicest compliment I've ever received

Isaac Asimov told me I should never read reviews of my books, so I don't. But my wife does read them, and this is one she just sent to me. I never had the opportunity to meet Heinlein, but I've read everything he ever wrote, including the non-fiction stuff. This is a compliment beyond my wildest dreams ツ

"Kept me wanting more and more !! Very good writing. Reminds of reading Heinlein. Short descriptions of technical things without becoming too wordy and trying to impress people with their knowledge." - watash, Amazon review of The Empty Eggs of Burning Light (http://goo.gl/zuJsqz)

This review was on book 3, but the first ebook in the series is free. If you're looking for a fun sci-fi adventure, give it a try. Here's the links where you can download it for free it:

The Police Are Still Out of Control - by Serpico

This is one of the most credible and cogent assessments of the current state of police forces I've ever read. Disclaimer - I met Frank Serpico when I was young. I agreed with him then, and I still agree with him.
