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.

Warren Fu cracks me up. It's like he has a dream of remaking all the science fiction classics only with Julian Casablancas and as music videos. The "Human Sadness" video is heavy on the nods to Terry Gilliam. We already learned in straight-up remake of Kubrick's 2001 as music video "You Only Live Once" that 40,000 years after the end of humanity there will be nothing left of us but some holograms of The Strokes performing on the reserve battery on an alien we've got The Voidz pretty much appearing in everything from "Brazil" and "Twelve Monkeys" on down to "On the Beach" and "The Day After Tomorrow" all in one 13 minute flick.

Julian, when they said "come to Brazil" I don't think they meant the movie. But it's still amazing. I had tears...

He said the glasses were from Laurie Anderson's "Big Science." I play "Strange Angels" all the time. Of course most recently I played it a ton as sort of theme music for my owl chase at Lake Superior. But for whatever reason I never really sat down and listened to "Big Science." Will have to do it now for sure! She's amazing, he's amazing. I wonder if they know each other. They must...

A bit later

Oh! I just realized this video must indeed be heavily influenced by "From the Air." TBH I never knew the name of "From The Air." I always thought of it as, "This is your captain speaking..." But it is very apropos!
