Kind of a fun show. I hadn't realized how big the production values were for this thing, nor how much comport there was among the actors portraying the characters.

I can't really get into it like I did as a kid, but it's kind of interesting. It feels very much like a Larson production, and it does feel like a mild Star Wars ripoff with the Cylons and Vipers, but that's Hollywood for ya.

So, for a film major, I sure have done a 180 degree on film, or so it would seem.

Way back in the early 70s I saw quite a few Westerns via Sacramento TV, along with the usual stuff I've mentioned here. A couple of films were "Paint your Wagon" and "The Hallelujah Trail", both supposedly comedies. It was then that I saw films as pretty idiotic stuff. Largely because neither film was funny. Light hearted in tone, but an absolute zero on delivering laughs.

So, in retrospect, a lot of mo ...More Read More

I really don't want to post this log entry, and would rather post it on my other blog and not here. This message doesn't go out to too many users here, but it does seem to be a point where people access my thoughts on feelings on my hobbies.

There has been a pointed effort to steer me towards religion, and not just through someone knocking on my door and trying to talk to me about their god, but a real effort using behavioral science, and this deeply angers me.

So, I'm still getting that drug and alcoholic rehab popup, but another one keeps appearing; "Trump or Obama".

Back in 2008 I was asked who I voted for by … fellow students and coworkers who knew who my parents were (I didn't). I didn't say.

And for some reason I keep getting the same feelings with this popup.

"Lucan or Dulinor"

Well, give me that Vargr dude who becomes archduke in the MT era.

As an aside I have penciled in candidates before. Make of that what you will.

  #513 New March 16th, 2019 10:48 AM
I'm kind of through writing about the skeletons or structural architecture of a lot of science fiction and just media in general. I'm way behind on a lot of writing that I need to finish off, and just stuff in general.

As per previous blog entries media, or rather media theory, is that we as a species learn by example. And so when we see other apes or primates like ourselves doing things, we tend to absorb that as a lesson of how we might or might not behave.

With that in mind, and mo ...More Read More

I really have no desire to go back into film and video. I did, even up until earlier last year, but knowing what I know now, and how I was steered toward film and video, I simply refuse.

I might have put up with Hollywood shenanigans to see Traveller get put up on the screen, but that's about it.

Considering how shabbily I was treated on other game forums (a lot of it was intentional to steer me away from games), and given the experience I had working on features and local video, I think ...More Read More

George Lucas and ILM story. I'm sick and tired of telling it, but apparently there's been A LOT of MISCOMMUNICATION between people allegedly trying to get my career back on track, and what I was shooting for.

Way back in 1990...maybe 1989, erm… 88 I'm thinking, I worked on a Sun Micro industrial that was a Star Trek parody with Kevin Pollack doing his then famous William Shatner "Captain Kirk" imitation, dressed up in a classic Star Fleet uniform, and spewing Kirk-ish Trek witticisms; i.e. ...More Read More

Hex 3231 Hef’Kaah!

Hef’Kah (as it’s referred to by non K’Kree) is one of the worlds accessible to “off worlders”, mainly as an example of K’Kree sociological progression and terraforming. Hef’Kah is a “mega-earth” (an old Solomani or Terran term) which denotes a world several times the size of Terra, but still retaining liquid water a nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere, oceans, mountains, plains, and all the elements for colonization, perhaps even native species. Such worlds, more often than not, ...More Read More

I've got to rework some of the fiction I posted. I feel really embarrassed by a lot of it, and even more embarrassed that I haven't received any real criticism of any of it.

In the knight story I left out two or three entire sections. And I stated in one scene how there were Vargr, and then a few paragraphs down I said there weren't any via a character's dialogue.

Many weeks back someone PM'd me via YouTube to move. Ah, nope, not unless I get a bonafides job offer down in LA or in ...More Read More

Back in the day I had an opportunity to work as a mate on a yacht at the local harbor, but begged off for whatever reason (I guess I really wasn't too interested at the time, even though I was sailing). In the last few years I've been looking at so-called "mega yachts", and where I think they're interesting to look at, I think I can safely say that even if I had gazillions of dollars at my disposal that I would not want one, and probably wouldn't want to charter one either, unless I really nee ...More Read More
