Read my new book, The 10 Best Things You Can Do For Your Bird at Amazon or at many other fine distributors like Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and more.

By public demand, and after a delay of an embarrassing number of years, I've finally put my notorious essay, Ender and Hitler: Sympathy for the Superman, free on the fabulous internets.

A bibliography of my published books and stories.

Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

A Sadean take on Asimov's classic Three Laws of Robotics can be found in Roger Williams' NOW REVIEWED ON SLASHDOT!!! The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect. Adult readers only please -- explicit sex and violence. For updates on the "Dead Tree Project" and other topics, you may visit the official fan site, Passages in the Void..

My Bird Lists -- My Louisiana State Life List, My Yard List and, tah dah, My World Life List.

HEY! What happened to the Peachfront Conure Files? The world's only OFFICIAL Peachfront Conure site now features free peachfront conure coverage, including a magazine length Intro to Conures previously published in American Cage-Bird Magazine, now free on the web. I offer the best free Peachfront Conure information on the internet. If you have great Peachfront Conure info, stories, or photos to share, contact me so I can publicize your pet, your breeding success, your great photograph, etc. on my site. Thanks.

Paypal cracks me up with these bizarre little emails: Reminder: you've got money in your account! No shit, Sherlock. You really think I forgot I gotz money in my account? Hello?

DH says he never gets these emails suggesting that he buy shoes and here's $10 to spend if he pays for the shoes with Paypal. Many questions come to mind. Do they only send the shoe shopping coupons to chicks? Do they only send reminders to go shopping to chicks? Do people (chicks or otherwise) really "forget" they have money in their account? And so forth...

Evidently DH thinks I've been holding out on the "real" Arctic Monkeys, as he has discovered the "Do I Wanna Know?" video. When last I ranted on the subject of AM videos, I expressed my shock that the two videos "Do I Wanna Know?" and "Fluorescent Adolescent" each had over 30 YouTube million views -- while the videos that actually showed the boys had maybe four million.

FA with its clowns setting each other and their cars on fire has stalled out at 37 million views but now DIWK has over 75 million views. Crikey! What's wrong with the human race? Meanwhile one of the best music videos ever made, "Cornerstone," has 6 million. Hell, "One for the Road" where Jamie is actually poppin' wheelies with a farm tractor only has 6 million views. If poppin' wheelies with a tractor isn't better than an R-Crumbish cartoon chick in boots then I don't know what to tell you...

Maybe it's that music video viewers are predominantly young high testosterone males, while music BUYERS are predominantly teen-age and twentysomething females? But why? Does that even make sense?
