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.

The most beautiful beach I have ever visited. Absolutely gorgeous. The water was crystal clear with schools of fish constantly swimming around your ankles. The sand was white, soft, and pure. The waves calm and relaxing. You won't have any luck surfing, but it could put you to sleep if you're floating, and snorkeling is a real option. They have a good sandwich counter if you get hungry and a fully stocked bar of you're looking for a glass with a little umbrella in it. They rent beach chairs for a reasonable free, so all you need to bring is your towel and your wallet.

Closest Starbucks to the house, so I have been coming here frequently since they opened not too long ago. Service can be uneven. Sometimes really fast, occasionally really slow. Haven't had a badly made drink yet, though.

A nice eclectic bar scene with excellent and unique food options and a very extensive beer menu. Service was friendly. Atmosphere was hipstery, but fun. Highly recommended.

Good biscuit sandwiches. Good service. Could use a renovation, tho. The inside is showing its age. If you're looking for a quick breakfast, be prepared for some lines as it can get pretty crowded. They move things a long pretty well, but you can only handle so many people before things start to slow down a bit.

It's your usual target experience. Nothing exceptional, but nothing bad either. Average lines at the check out registers. Staff is friendly and some of them will really go out of their way to help you find things. The self check out is nice when all 4 are working, but often one or two are not, causing a back up with the end result taking longer than if you used a regular line.

A new restaurant (to me at any rate) popped up in my Google search for lunch spots near work, so I thought I'd check it out. It's hidden in an office building not too far away from RBC. They specialize in sandwiches and panini. The roast beef panini I ordered was quite good, the bread fresh and toasted, and the beef cooked just right and pleasantly pink. They offer chips, potato salad, and pasta salad as a side, but today I chose the fresh fruit. Served in a cup, it was made up of freshly sliced strawberries, pineapple, and melons. No canned fruit from what I could tell. Friendly service and a respectable price make this a place I'm sure to try again.
