This Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday come out to the University of SC, Union and join us for a little bit of murder, a little bit of mayhem, and a whole lot of fun as we unravel the mystery of the "Murder on Apple Road"! Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for students. Advance tickets are available at the Arts Council, Something Special, from any cast member. Or you can try your luck at the door. Showtimes are 7pm Friday and Saturday; 3pm Sunday.

To put you in the mood, here's a little mystery music by yours truly, with special thanks to vocalists Denise Hudson, Tom Giarrosso, JoAnn Abbott, and Tim Leigh.
"Dr. Lindyke" is the nom de plume of William Hoover and Dave Leigh. William writes lyrics; Dave writes music. Though we write a lot, neither of us are really performers, and we LOVE it when people cover our songs. Please do.

Note: This essay is entirely opinion. There's nothing scientific about it. I'm going to ramble a bit. AND I'm going to use bad words. F-words. Lots and lots of F-words. And it will probably change as I think about it some mor...

Interesting. Is your definition of a scientist then someone who applies the scientific method, rather than related to a particular field?

Surely then a programmer is the perfect scientist, you have an objective and you test stuff till it works. Sensationalist programming is non existent, either code works or it didn't.

C'mon, Canada... you're supposed to be better than this. A 20-year extension of copyrights for corporate interests is just a case of "monkey-see, monkey-do".

"The term of related rights must reflect a balance between  incentives, market freedom and costs for society. This balance will be upset when terms are extended for the mere reason that content subject to expiration still has market value. The public domain is not merely a graveyard of recordings that have lost all value in the market place. It is also an essential source of inspiration to subsequent creators, innovators and distributors."
Randy Bachman, the well-known Canadian musician, found himself embroiled in a public fight with Prime Minister Stephen Harper last year when Harper used his song "Takin' Care of Business" as a theme song for a major speech. Bachman said he probably would not have granted permission to use the song, since "I don't think he's taking care of business for the right people or the right reasons." Bachman was singing a different tune yesterday as the go...

I judge a person by the content of their messages, not the color of the bubbles. #growupApple

My friend Ash thought he'd take some photos on the beach, but as usual he left his finger over the lens. This picture is copyrighted by F. Everett Leigh, and first appeared on the Charleston Pics Facebook page.

Another Tree Fable.
Though battle-scarred and weary, General Quercus makes his yearly pilgrimage to the gravesite to witness once again what they have done to his father's bones. Soon he will return to the fight with a dogged determination arisi...

Ever since I was in high school, it always bothered me that Ballantine Books changed the cover design for the Star Trek Log series of books -- Alan Dean Foster's adaptations of the Star Trek Animated Series scripts -- before they had completed the run. I've always hated how jarring and unnecessary that change was.

Anyway, I decided to fix it. So here are my covers for Star Trek Log Nine ("Bem") and Star Trek Log Ten ("Slaver Weapon").

Here's your Trek fix. 
Notable points about this episode:
* Colin Baker guest stars. You may remember him as The Doctor (Doctor Who)
* Marina Sirtis (Counselor Troi from STNG) provides the voice of the Computer. While Majel Rodenberry is sorely missed, they couldn't have found a better replacement.
* As usual for STC, Chris Doohan (son of late actor James Doohan) fills his fathers' shoes in the role of Scotty.
* Many characters from prior episodes return. You'll just have to see.
* The title is superbly chosen

NPR reports that 1 in 4 Americans think the Sun goes around the Earth. So did Sherlock Holmes. For a great many people this bit of information is of no practical use whatsoever.
I often complain about "junk science", and in that context I've talked about expertise "within a domain". Here's where I do the same, but with a possibly surprising opinion. This was seen on NPR.com: 1 In 4 Americans Thinks T...

Honestly, with internet nowadays you don't need to know anything, just how to parse information.

I don't know how to build a computer and I don't need to, with the internet I can figure it out.

Also, everyone knows the sun is Appollo's flaming chariot.

I'm posting this for no reason whatsoever. Nope. It's totally unrelated to any conversation I may have had in the recent past concerning the British television show, "Spaced".
