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.

a lovebird as matt damon in the zero theorem

2015-02-22 - 11:48 a.m.

We watched The Zero Theorem, which was beautifully filmed and all, but the HD photography reminiscent of cheesy Thomas Kinkade paintings is less new and interesting this time of century than Terry Gilliam might be willing to believe. DH sniffed that it was a reworking of Brazil. The main point of interest for me was trying to decide whether or not the girl existed at all. Probably not. I think she was invented out of a whole cloth from a chance meeting at a party...But there's some doubt whether even the party actually happened. We first meet the rat at this party, coming out to snatch up the olive that Q chokes on. But we soon learn the rat actually lives in the old cathedral Q bought at auction...

After sleeping on it, I doubt Bob existed as an independent entity either. He seems to be some fantasy of Q's about his own boyhood genius. An early clue is Q's insistence that "we" are dying. There is no "we" other than this man's own fantasy figures...well, there's the rat and the fantail pigeons who hang around to pick up crumbs but, eh, who knows. I would have to watch the whole thing again sometime to work it out, and now is too soon methinks.
