From “Space Oddity” through “Blackstar,” David Bowie was pop music’s ambassador to the realms of science fiction and fantasy. Jason Heller explains how the shapeshifting Starman was inspired by the dark sci-fi experiments of the space age.

On Accountability

check-listThere’s something to this notion of getting to know yourself. I assume it happens for different people at different times and over different things. Maybe it’s something you never learn – you get set in your ways at a certain point and from there it’s solid, no matter what. Or maybe, like with me, it’s an ongoing process. Continue reading

Disconnected

fb-bye-byeLast Tuesday, I quit Facebook cold turkey. It was never intended to be forever and I’ll probably go back tomorrow or the next day, but I needed a break. I needed to get away from politics and the depressing place the world is becoming. I needed to cleanse the palette.

Once a week or so, I get together with Monika for coffee and to do some work. Our get togethers start with a catch-up of what’s been happening since the last time and then we settle in behind our own keyboards and get our stuff done. A few weeks ago, though, she said something which stuck with me. While we were talking, she stopped me and asked “Is there anything good in your life?” Continue reading

Here’s a little story I wrote about it for David. Source: Games People Play | David Magazine

Brain scans

“Once they hit 6 months, they start doing all sorts of weird things.”

Aside from the fact this was said in Lithuanian and had to be translated for me, it was rather reassuring news. Especially when it comes from a baby neurologist.  Continue reading

How Syfy is Leading The Charge With Imagining Diverse Futures

maxresdefaultWith a new season of The Expanse starting soon and having just finished watching the two existing (and impatiently awaiting the third) seasons of Killjoys, I found this an great article on where televised science fiction is heading. (Seriously, if you haven’t watched Killjoys, it’s pure pulp SF fun!)

Over the last couple of seasons of television, critics and audiences have begun to pay a considerable amount of attention to the role of women and racial diversity on their favorite shows. Despite being set in the future, science fiction television has often been stubbornly stuck in the past. With its latest lineup, however, the Syfy channel has demonstrated that a proactive approach can create lasting change.

Half a year and counting…

clothes-pileI guess 6 months marks a specific milestone in the little one’s development. At least it does for me. I know she’s doing new things every day, getting stronger and developing more of her personality, but for some reason, the arbitrary reaching of 6 months is significant.  Continue reading
