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.

Cookie was highly upset at the moment on Cosmos last night when an animated Old World vulture appeared on screen. That critter did not have the proper attitude toward worldwide drought and the end of civilization as they knew it. In fact, if you looked closely -- and Cookie evidently did -- that vulture was munching away as the world burned. Tacky.

I think I didn't know that Richard Ayoade was an actor but perhaps I should have guessed that making hilarious music videos is not a full-time job. In any case, congrats to him for winning his best actor award. Thanks to his award and to Twitter, TIL that he's actually a comedian on British TV. It makes sense. The dude is funny. If you can watch the Cornerstone or Crying Lightning music videos with a straight face, I'm afraid to know you...

Gosh, I'm glad I'm not the only person who secretly thinks this:

Although come to think of it, there is no "secretly" about it if it's tweeted around the world wide interwebs...

I'll say one thing for Ezra. His music is not for me but he is about a thousand times better lookin' than my generation's Paul Simon who was, in fact, Paul Simon. That dude just better be glad he got born in time to be famous in the 60s and 70s. He's too ordinary looking to be a star these days. Hell, he wasn't good lookin' even back in the day. I think we all liked him for ten minutes because he was all sensitive or something.

As for Ezra himself, love him or listen to him with the sound turned down, you have to admit that his twitter account is pure gold:
