One step down, two to go. Big thanks to the city for bringing Raleigh one step closer to Google Fiber.

Hello all! I'm doing my first charity walk this Saturday for Families of SMA, and I am so close to my fundraising goal of $500, I can taste it. Anyone want to help contribute to eradicating the #1 genetic killer of infants in America?

The magic begins at 1:10. But it's worth the wait, I assure you.

Okay epic fantasy readers of Brandon Sanderson! Are you out there?

I got one of his books from the library to check him out. Warbreaker. (His more famous Mistborn books have a waiting list a mile long).  Anyway I've read the prologue and first chapter of this hefty, hefty tome. 

And it is terrible. Pedestrian prose that telegraphs character actions and motivations with the subtly of a sledgehammer, and a magic system that might be fun in a computer game, but seems utterly contrived and artificial in a book.

But it's got 4 stars on Goodreads and people are raving about it!

So my shot in the dark question is this: Does it get better? Should I bother reading further?

I saw the FB post too a couple of weeks ago. But that is key, I actually saw that. I'm with you. G+ is a much cleaner world (though they have mucked it up a bit). FB just has the damn critical mass because they got there first. Well, after myspace, but with a better product. I think G+ get's most of it's "growth" because it provides a better outlet for following folks than FB does, especially geeks. I also understand it is doing better outside the US than in.

Wow. Prometheus was well worth the midnight showing. Will have to see it again. Also, I rarely say this b/c I almost always try to avoid it, but it really should be seen in 3D. Scott actually uses it to incredibly awesome effect. You forget you are watching it and it enhances everything, emotionally as well as visually.

I had high hopes for this flick and it exceeded all expectations. Go see it.

Introduction
Hi, I'm Dave. I'm a writer, occasional poet, and former and hopefully future webcomiker. I am the co-creator of The Dada Detective, Vol 1 & Vol 2. a webcomic that ran for four years and two hundred strips. 

I'm also writer of The Dada Alphabet: An Absurdist's Illustrated Primer, and the short comic collection, Likely Stories: All of the Common, None of the Sense.  Both illustrated by the incomparable Stephanie Freese and co-written by Matthew Wood.

My short stories have appeared in Sinister Bedfellows: The Anthology, and A Child's Guide to Teasing Bees: Simple Lessons for Difficult Children (not yet published). 

I'm currently developing a new fantasy adventure comic called Unreal City Tales with Peter Venables & Matthew Wood.

I live and work in Raleigh.

A Triangle institution that gets some surprisingly well known acts for the size of the venue. Be prepared to stand. Not many seating options beyond a few bar stools and a bench off to one side. Good beer on tap and they don't try to gouge. Parking is a lot more sane now that a parking deck is nearby.

An awesome little gem in "downtown" Jamestown. Excellent sandwiches and tasty entrees including a very tasty meatloaf. Slightly upscale atmosphere, food, and prices They have an excellent outdoor seating area with a real fire place, and well spaced heaters to make even cold nights comfortable. Live music on the weekends.

It's a Starbucks. You either like their coffee or you don't. I do. This one serves it fast and friendly. What more is there to be said?

Good Latte. Good peanut butter cookie. Friendly staff. The only thing this coffee shop lacks is comfortable lounge seating when you're looking for a place to chill and read a book.

Friendly service, Good fried chicken, and Diet Mt. Dew. Does it get any better than that? Yes, be sure and try the Cheddar Bo.

I've been using this comic shop for years. Great, knowledgeable staff who go out of their way to help you when you need it. An excellent selection of graphic novels and all the latest single issues with a nice discount on Wednesdays when new issues arrive. It falls down a bit in two areas. 1)The shop is cluttered and feels disorganized. It really feels like a stereotypical comic shop, so much so that I fear newcomers might not give the place a chance. And 2) The lighting, especially in the front of the store, is abysmal. So dim you might mistake the place for being closed in the evenings even though they're open until 7pm. The entire store could really use a complete remodel, to be honest. At the very least, it could use a lot more light.

An excellent place for grub and watching the game. While they have the standard bar food fare of burgers, sandwiches, and wings, Backyard also gets a little creative with sandwiches such as their Mikie's New Pick, a Delmonico steak sandwich lightly breaded on a brioche roll with sauteed utica greens. Other notable adventures include a chicken spiedie sandwich, a pork cubano with Gruyere cheese, and a beef brisket sandwich with fries as a condiment. Their appetizers also show some lively originality with pig wings, pulled pork eggrolls, ahi tuna, sausage bread, and poutine for any of you displaced Canadians out there. Add to it fast, friendly service and a huge wall devoted to projection TVs to watch a game and you've got a great sports bar. Def recommended!
