BLOG: Remembering Leonard Nimoy

Normally, I’m pretty good with words. At the moment, I’m not at my best, for reasons I hope are self evident. However, I’m going to do my best to remember someone who gave more to my life than he ever knew. I never got to know Leonard Nimoy the way my…
Mister Spock made it okay for me to be the weird kid who eventually grew into a slightly-less weird adult, but it was Leonard Nimoy who made Mister Spock live, and who made Star Trek possible.

As I write this, I am 34,998 feet above the skin of the Earth, traveling East at 527 miles per hour. The captain just announced that we’re about to land, and I have about five minutes of Internet left before I have to buy more. Looks like I picked a…
As I write this, I am 34,998 feet above the skin of the Earth, traveling East at 527 miles per hour. The captain just announced that we're about to land, and I have about five minutes of Internet left before I have to buy more. Looks like I picked a really bad time to write a 1500 word post about a bunch of cool and interesting stuff that's happened since last Friday. (In the time it took me to type out those words, we descended a little over two...

Something very awesome happened today. I can’t say anything more about it (for now) but I can finally talk about this other awesome thing that I’m super excited to be part of! In the upcoming Firefly Online game, I get to be the voice of the male avatar!!…

BLOG: How not to solicit business in 2015 or ever

This email was waiting for me when I got back from the JoCo Cruise: Maybe it’s the fact that the boat is still moving, or the fact that I have real coffee in my veins for the first time in almost two weeks, or maybe it’s just because I’m easily amused,…
This email was waiting for me when I got back from the JoCo Cruise: Maybe it's the fact that the boat is still moving, or the fact that I have real coffee in my veins for the first time in almost two weeks, or maybe it's just because I'm easily amused, but here is my response: Happy Monday, everyone! May all your emails today be amusing.

Joe, who did this animation, says, "While honing my skillz as a 3D artist, I worked on this animation.  Major hard drive trubs wrecked my work files, so I gotta leave it be.  Thought I'd share with you what I got :)"

I think this is pretty great, so I wanted to share it.

I'm looking forward to playing it, but since they announced that all kickstarter backers are getting all versions (very cool of them!) I think I'm going to wait for the PS4 version so I can play it on the big screen.

BLOG: The point of view that creates the world.

I imagine my creative process as a cycle of filling up a reservoir with inspirations and ideas, and then emptying it out into various creations. Sometimes that reservoir is drained in one explosive surge, but mostly it’s emptied out a little bit at a…

What it not to love? I am always so amazed when somone says they don't. I never believed in aliens. Figured if they were out and had the way to travel they would visit us. Then I met my Uncle Carol who investigated UFOs for the government for 50 years, around the world. My family thought he was nuts. When my father died a book my uncle wrote and gave him came down into my hands. Am not sure what I believe now, but lots of food for thought. My Star Trek space fantasy may be true..

BLOG: that time I got to see the Arecibo telescope

I suck at mornings, especially when I’m on a (working) vacation. But getting up at oh-my-god-it’s-still-dark-out-why-am-I-awake o’clock to go see the Arecibo telescope with my own eyes (and two busloads of nerds) was totally worth it. The thing about this…
I suck at mornings, especially when I'm on a (working) vacation. But getting up at oh-my-god-it's-still-dark-out-why-am-I-awake o'clock to go see the Arecibo telescope with my own eyes (and two busloads of nerds) was totally worth it. The thing about this is that it's so huge, it sort of distorts the scale of itself and creates the illusion of not being a thousand feet across. But it's a thousand feet across. While we were there, I got to watch t...

Star Trek, of course, Fraudian slip since it is StarTrek that started me on my quest into all things space.
