Tom Swift and His Jetmarine was as thoroughly entertaining as I’d hoped. A great read. Now, on to Shogun.

I really don’t like pressure.

I finally got my hands on a Tom Swift book. By luck, it’s the second book in the Tom Swift Jr. series (Tom Swift and His Jetmarine). I’ve been curious about the quality of these rousing adventures for years. And boy, is this book fun. It’s all breathtaking adventures and sci-fi inventions, though the author […]

Saw Spider-Man 3 last night, during a lovely evening spent with Mandy and Kirstin. I have a troubled history with the Spider-Man movies. The first one had comparatively little web-slinging action. And what action there was, was stunted by Peter’s lack of experience. It just didn’t have full-scale fun Marvel battles. Okay, I thought, it’s […]

Just finished reading Neal Gabler’s exhaustive biography, Walt Disney. What a man. He spent his entire life dissatisfied. The animations were never good enough. The parks never had enough rides.

Saalon called and we talked excitedly about the giant robot idea we’re working on. Ate some melon and a slice of bread for lunch. Went shopping. Came home, unpacked, started some […]

One of the most popular anime shows in Japan this season is Lucky Star, a screwball comedy about a couple of rather dense high school girls. The opening theme song always makes me smile. You can ignore the nonsense lyrics and just enjoy the over-the-top, fun, completely celebrational animation.

Yesterday was the last day of my web design class. It was a test of my teaching skills, and of my willingneess to teach regularly again. Teaching can drain you incredibly fast. I enjoyed myself. It was challenging, but I had plenty to say every night we met. Each week was different, which is almost […]

You may have noticed that the “recently photographed” image on this site rotated amongst a few recent photos. That’s because the battery door on my camera broke several weeks ago. I haven’t had the money to buy a replacement, thanks my job hop. So, I’ve removed the photo from the sidebar, until I can take […]
