Bits & Pieces 2012-10-25

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. Or Maybe I Need to Learn to Talk Like John Moschitta … or Paris Geller. My mind goes back to one episode of Gilmore Girls (“It Should Have Been Lorelai”, season 2, episode 14—and no, I didn’t know that off the top of my head) when Paris […]

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. NOTE: I’ve been light on the posts, because I’m working feverishly on the next novel, Ardor Point #2… which I need to come up with a proper name for. Currently, the two top contenders are A Reason to Live and Finding Light. Race Relations on the Internet […]

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. When a Cat Takes Over Your Life I apologize for being absent this week. We’ve had a small family drama… involving our cat. If you subscribe to my Facebook profile, you know that Tessie-cat got sick and then started acting seriously weird. As I’ve mentioned before, Tessie […]

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. Warp 21—35—17, Hut! This is too cool. The other day I was gushing to my kids that by the 24th century, life will probably be just like it is in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Well, maybe not the warp drive, because that’s just a plot device […]

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. Hey, Can I Get Facebook on This Thing? August 1 was the 30’th anniversary of the release of the Commodore 64 home computer.

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. It’s All in the Emphasis My Daughter: No way am I gonna name my son “Jonathan.” Every Jonathan I know is a total asshole, except my dad. Me: What about Jonathan [so-and-so]? He’s not a total asshole– uh, I mean, he’s not a total asshole… At Least […]

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. (I think I’m becoming more cynical and sardonic. Sorry about that. Might be time to read more Dave Barry.) Spider Robots Take Over the Earth Someone must’ve sent me this link, to a piece about a rideable spider-robot, named Stompy, being designed and built locally. I couldn’t […]

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. Return to Triskelion To ordinary people with dictionaries, a triskelion is an artistic motif consisting of three interlocked spirals. Star Trek fans, however, will recognize “Triskelion” as the planet where the “Providers” (these ultra-powerful, disembodied, colored, light-up brain guys) betted on how fights would turn out between […]

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. Independence Day at the Point Catching up on some of my subscribed RSS feeds, I was enamored of a photo post by smilla4 on her Independence Day in Maine at Ardor Point— er, I mean Merepoint. Charity Versus Deeds of Lovingkindness Heard this phrase at a recent […]

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. You MUST Have an Opinion I love Weird Al, but I’ll fight to the death your right not to care one way or the other! The Onion told a heartbreaking story a whole month ago about one peaceable gentleman who was intimidated by his so-called friends into […]
