I'm getting email again! My email MX records JUST finished updating.

I started at 2am, so I was afraid I'd by in radio silence all day. Whew!

For anyone who might email me. I'm updating my geneha.com "MX records" and emails to me might bounce for part of today. Can't be helped! If it's important, resend on Sunday!

I got to attend a Prof. Kakalios talk at Fermilab as his guest! And hung out with physicists, who are far better at blowing my mind than any philosopher or novelist. Fun!
 
+Gene Ha attended my talk at FermiLab on THE PHYSICS OF SUPERHEROES earlier this month, and made this sketch, in about no time flat.  When I praised how quickly he can dash off such great pieces, his friend, a fellow comic book artist, complained: "It's so annoying!"

I'm SO jealous you went to visit Fermilab!  One of my old classmates works there, or at least I think he does.  I don't know if he's still there.

Mark Waid give his advice to folks just starting in comics. Be patient, act like a pro, treat your editor like a pro, and expect the same treatment back. Know the difference between shared struggle and abuse. And always place your highest loyalty on the story. Not your name or the company, the artwork itself.

Anything else is career and artistic suicide: "...they were trained to believe that their first priority was to serve their editor and do so in a timely manner, and whatever creative voice they brought to the table was secondary. They were good soldiers. They were great soldiers. All of those people have been unemployed for years."

Scientists discover that an alien sun's solar flares are burning away a whole planet.

And 80s video arcade history must be revised. Look at the graphic. The game was really about a rogue sun consuming inhabited planets (dots), while being chased by ghosts from its previous meals.
 
Solar flare evaporates planet:
Solar flares – huge eruptions of charged particles from the Sun – present little threat to Earth. On a few rare occasions these particles may disrupt ou

Brad Meltzer wrote a kids' biography series, #OrdinaryPeopleChangeTheWorld and asked who my hero is. I have so many! I'll just focus on one for now.

Temple Grandin was born with autism, which back in the 40s and 50s was just considered brain damaged. With the encouragement of a science teacher who believed in her, she used her distinct insights to revolutionize how we understand animal behavior. Not content to change theory, she applied her ideas to make slaughter houses more humane and convinced the owners to go along with it because it's also cheaper and easier.

Heroes don't accept the world as is. Push new ideas. Sweat to make it happen.

After being alerted by +Lowell Francis , I couldn't resist pitching into this Kickstarter too. I luv me some Bee and Puppycat! If you haven't seen it, here's the compilation of the two free episodes that got me hooked: Bee and PuppyCat on Cartoon Hangover
 
Just backed this because I loved the two episodes they put out online. I want to see more. I think +Gene Ha agrees. 
Bee and PuppyCat is a popular cartoon created by Natasha Allegri & Frederator Studios on Cartoon Hangover. We want to make it a series!

Anyone know Czech and want to help me out? For no good reason I decided that the fantasy names in a story I want to tell should be Czech.

I'm looking for the Czech equivalent of fantasy names like Gandalf Stormcrow or little Johnny Paper. The interwebs will do me no good at all. I have pretty good Google skills.

This may not be news to hardcore Doctor Who fans, especially in France. That may look like the first Doctor (1963) but this traveller of time and space appeared in 1906.

French comics journalist +loïc riva is clueing me into early French scifi beyond Jules Vernes. The 1906 novel "Le Docteur Omega" is about a brusk not-quite-human scientist stranded in France. He builds a machine to travel across both time and space, and picks two human companions to join him on the maiden voyage. When they're imprisoned on Mars, the Docteur signals for rescue by the equally mysterious Docteur Helvetius.

I've not read Darvel's adventures neither but I sure will the sooner.

What was interesting about this period writers was their absolute faith in science. " Almighty Science !!! "

A science often mixed with magic, spiritism and occultism because perhaps "Science" was still to be defined, if indeed it were possible.

A mix that gave them a sometimes no limits inventiveness which was the guarantee of escapism even it was also tainted with a bit of naiveness. But it's part of the charm.

A charm "the league of extraodinary gentlemen" really succeded in recreating both concerning story, mood and art, in my opinion.

I really think there is something in the liberty and creativity of these late writers we should try to retrieve. Something that clearly has to do with our inner child.
