So near as I can tell, all the social media interconnections that I actually use. Dotted lines can be set up, but aren’t.
As someone whose primary email address is the same as my own domain, I’m less prone to incidents of “Reverse Identity Theft” than the average person. However my iCloud account is a constant source of annoyance and amusement. Deirdre’s not all that common a name, really, but it’s astonishing how many of them seem to […]
I started writing fiction around 1988. My best friend, Joyce, started a writing group out of our circle of friends. If I wanted to play, I had to write. All of us (who are still living) are still writing, too. The first piece I wrote Joyce said was like “waltzing with Frankenstein” — it’s clumsy, […]
Ever since I posted my “The Show Killer. Me. post, people have been accusing me of getting shows canceled that they liked. I was not responsible for the following: The 4400: had a longer run. I only consider it a show I killed if it didn’t last three full seasons and I became a serious […]
First up, Now You See Me, which can be described as a mashup between The Prestige and The Bank Job with Jesse Eisenberg’s Mark Zuckerberg as Robin Hood. Seriously, if they nail this, it has the potential to go on my top 10 favorite movies of all time. Second, a Zombie romcom, Warm Bodies. The […]

Here are some series I have loved in Season 1 or 2 that have died an early death, in approximate reverse order. These are all series where I became a fan within the first two seasons in real time and was religious about not missing an episode. Fairly Legal Alcatraz Terra Nova FlashForward Caprica Stargate […]
Sorry to see you go, Fairly Legal. There’s really only been two shows I’ve fully bonded with in the last few years: that one and FlashForward, but they appealed to me in completely different ways. I’ll write about that later.
Kate showed me this video of an an audition. Not just any audition. One where a comedian with a character as a geek gamer crashes a music video dance audition and acts like a goofball (and specifically asks for a rules exception). Despite no formal dance training (but impressive dance skill despite that), he gets […]
I love some of the rhetorical perspectives on Twitter, especially parody people and pets, but I’m kind of new to forces of nature and inanimate objects tweeting. So imagine my joy the other day when I saw our very own @AirshipEureka blipping about the neighborhood. She’s sporting a new side (to me) with a twitter […]
