I guess that "Final Experiment" didn't work out, huh?

 
He should get a hat or something...A few weeks ago I was returning home from a flight. Since I got off the plane, I only had two things in mind: To drown myself in Cherry Coke, and watch Red Dwarf. After coaxing my aging but free television into operation, I briefly flipped to the Sci-Fi Channel. I knew they were broadcasting series three of the new Dr. Who series, and I was curious to see if it was any good.I managed to catch the trailing 15 minutes of Daleks in Manhattan. I was excited to see...

Purple and Black

 
I found myself earlier this evening lamenting about book. You see, last week I had the fortune of taking the most beautiful hardcover I own with me on a business trip. It was not skillfully crafted or delicately ornate. It was, like so many in my collection, of machine construction. Nevertheless, I found this one particularly delightful for its simple composition.The cover was two toned. Purple on each side, tooled with a subtle diamond pattern. The binding was a woven black that buzzed when you ran...

Thanks, but no thanks

 
Dear Apple,While I appreciate your recent effort with the iPhone, I'm afraid that I will not purchase one in the near future. I am quite pleased with my BlackBerry Pearl, as well as the $300-$400 I saved in doing so. Really, aren't the prices you're asking a bit steep for 4 or 8gb? The lukewarm reviews over the weekend gave the impression the product development was rushed. With the iPhone out of the way, can you please start working on a Tablet MacBook now? I am not alone in this, there are...

Rewrite

 
A few weeks ago, I began quietly working on a rewrite to Novella. I hadn't worked on the story seriously since November of last year, and in that time I had many new ideas. Typically it takes me a long time to come up with new ideas for a story, which is partly why it has taken me years to write one at all. Perhaps that would be different if I had been writing full time, but I'd rather be well paid IT guru who writes on the side than a starving young writer.The impetus for this rewrite was not...

C'est Parfait!

 
For reasons I still can't comprehend, the face didn't turn out well. It doesn't quite look like the same artsy as she was in the last picture. Of course, that panel turned out astonishingly well that it's not a surprise that I wouldn't match it on my next effort.I was actually considered deleting the entire sketch and starting over again several nights ago. Not only was the face bothering me, the long sleeves of the kimono bore a distinct resemblance to cardboard. Often I would spend only a few minutes...

UK Trip 2007

 
National Museum of the Media in Bradford Red Dalek A sad fate for a once powerful mutant soldier in a traveling machine...This Red Dalek was found in a empty balcony overlooking the food court of the Bradford Museum of Film and Photography (now called the National Media Museum). My guide too all things British informed me -- despite the lack of any signs -- that this one was from the Dalek Invasion of Earth. I tried to watch the film later, but it's cheesy humor offset me. I never finished the...
