Books on screenwriting can be amazingly useful, but they have an obvious disadvantage: you have to read them. Although reading is great, you can’t do it all the time. As it turns out, the worst times for reading are often the best times for listening to podcasts. For example: while driving! Or while watching the clock at your mind-numbing day job! Listed in no particular order, here are some of the best podcasts for screenwriters, fi...

Flash fiction posted to CHEAP POP LIT: "Orion's Tooth"
http://www.cheappoplit.com/home/2015/1/13/orions-tooth-peter-clarke
Stargazing is a real thing I try to explain to my fellow creatures every chance I get. At the moment I have something stuck in my tooth, which doesn’t sound like a very big problem until I explain that it’s a dentist’s probing instrument and along with it he has both of his entire hands shoved into my mouth. I can’t speak and pretty soon my whole jaw is going to come ripping off my head when all I want to do is patch up a simple cavity...

Fictionfeed.net just reviewed my story, Orion's Tooth: "This story is a very high-level example of what a short fiction piece can accomplish. It presents us with a captivating protagonist, an absurd situation, and a deeply felt (but hardly sentimental) expression of what it is to be human, to live. This story combines a variety of funny details and absurdist juxtapositions to paint a picture of the so-called human condition." Check out the full review: http://www.fictionfeed.net/?p=405

Why BIRDMAN Won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay
Everyone loves superheros. That's why a superhero movie will never win an Oscar--it's too obvious. The genius of Birdman is that it incorporates a superhero theme into a complex world rich with intellectual pretension. Anyone who takes art seriously adores intellectual pretension. This is the stuff that wins Oscars. The problem with it, however, is that it can fail as entertainment. So: add superheros. Did Birdman win just because o...

Awesome review of my cold and rainy hometown.
Highly ranked natural amenities are just part of the equation that landed Port Angeles, Wash., on this list. Low food costs, low crime and high community involvement help make the city one of the nation's best places to live. That's especially the case for crab lovers.

My response to Justice Scalia: "If law school is meant to be something more than a trade school, then why settle for three years? Why not elevate the J.D. to the status of the M.D. and keep law students in school for seven years?"

Agree with Justice Scalia here :) I doubt that making law school a four or five year thing will add any value to law school or to legal profession. For many students lawyer school is already extending into 4-5 years things (part-timers, dual degree students, class re-takers, etc). However, I do believe with Justice Scalia "profession of law" vision. And, I think that unfortunately many if not most law school of today do not prepare students for that profession. It is not the amount of years, the quantity of material, and marketing strategy the must change. The key is the QUALITY of legal education in US today. Too many law schools are simply faking it. And, there will be consequences of such strategy, even though it may seemingly be an easy way out. The point is that the approach "fake it or make" can not and should not apply in law schools. To me law school is about reality of law, attorney's own moral compass, client's life problems reduced to facts and nuances of meaning. A profession of lawyer sits on this 3-legged stool of professional core values, legal principles, and facts from clients' pandora boxes. Today's law school (and that is any law school) is falling from this stool quite precipitously....
