In Moot Member Blogs Games I wanted to do. Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #605 New February 27th, 2021 06:03 PM
I wanted to play Star Frontiers, but never really had the opportunity. A combination of not having the money, time, and the usual "family doesn't want me playing games" kind of thing.

I wanted to do a Starfire campaign after SF III came out, but the family wouldn't allow it, and told my friends to flake on me.

I wanted to do a SFB campaign using either the old Federation Space or F&E strategic maps, but as usual the family trashed the effort.

I dumped a lot of effort into Traveller th ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Why I don't like entertainment media. Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #604 New February 23rd, 2021 08:55 PM
This is kind of the other reason I fell out of love with film and "subconsciously" quit media as a whole. It may sound like I'm "protesting too much" and am secretly hiding a hidden desire to go back to media, but honestly this is a core beef.

Entertainment media, as I've mentioned, focus primarily on law and order and health issues. You never see an episode of any situation comedy nor police drama that challenges a religion, social system, or politics of any kind.

A large reason for ...More Read More

Post edited and removed for taste.

I don't do Traveller anymore, and people are tired of my personal dramas ... a long time ago.

Many apologies.

But I'm still PO'd beyond belief about the whole thing.

  #602 New January 28th, 2021 05:18 PM
Apparently there is a "Family" member involved in ruining my chances to write for this game and other games. And apparently he's involved in ruining my chances to produce the films that I wanted to.

He's crazy. He is actually insane. He's an actor with tenuous "Hollywood" ties, and ties to some of the upper elites in European society. One resulted in Richard Dawkins coming to speak at a local bookstore in Marin County, which I attended. It was at this event that this "family" member tri ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs I like the US. Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #601 New December 31st, 2020 06:17 AM
I just want to make it clear that in spite of my huge misadventure of a life here in the US, a large part of which was dedicated to gaming and so-called "geek culture" as it stood in the 70s and 80s, I still like the United States, and still keep all that I've read about the founders of this nation close to my heart.

I never could get in the groove of American culture. In spite of the stock car races I attended, in spite of all of the SF Giants and 49er games I went to, in spite of all th ...More Read More

So, Gene Roddenberry, in his various spiels about Star Trek, often stated how we humans were capable of so many more things and how "the human adventure is just beginning" and other nonsense. To me that kind of stuff I just chalked up to artistic eccentricity, but, as it turns out, it may have been intentional to loop in the more delusional section of the fanbase. There's a portion of fans of any fiction who take things way above and beyond reason. When Star Trek the Next Generation aired I ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Not doing film. Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #599 New December 21st, 2020 10:35 AM
Film and TV are all about behavioral science. Given the amount of abuse I received over the last 40+ years from behavioral science, I really despise it (film and TV).

Someone tried to get me to stop writing for games--the concept being that the worse I got treated then, in theory, I should let my pride take over and move onto something else that's more high profile to meet someone else's criteria for my life.

Well, too bad for you.

Again, my objective was to get some tips to creat ...More Read More

So, this time I had my YouTube channel shut down without any warnings. I got into a heated argument with an Indian behavioral scientist acting on my mother's and families behalf, and he had my account suspended for disagreeing with him about WMDs in Saddam Hussein's arsenal. Even with clean language, even on my Discussion board, the comment was deemed offensive.

Over the years it's largely private security people doing the doctor's dirty work, and no matter how many times I contact the Sta ...More Read More

I've had it with "mother" f---ing RUSSIA.

Apparently the commies were the cause of the unrest in my father's home land, and apparently they tried to screw with me hoping I would turn out to be a POS "alpha" male with all kinds of nasty criminal habits.

Well, too bad for them. Putin and Pozner can go straight to hell.

Thanks to the US Navy and US Army I got my gray matter back in order, although there is one particular individual (who shall remain nameless) who has some explaining to ...More Read More
