I'm confuzzled about which books are offered where and in what format. I would have bought Dancing Barefoot, The Happiest Days of Our Lives and Memories of the Future last night if I had found .epub files. Read Just a Geek over Easter, really enjoyed it.

True story: there is an episode during the Tom Baker reign that contains a worm's eye view shot, and Baker has this enormous booger dripping out of his nose. He snorfles it up and goes on with the scene. Wish I could remember which episode.

Forget gaming - being a dick is the default for being online. It's a huge, international community of dicks. Seriously. People aspire to being dicks. How about redefining the motto parameters? I d/l'd your speech. You were in the pocket.

Don't wind yourself up. Retro 80's is fucking huge right now - among people who weren't around to experience it the first time, that is. I imagine your first speech would have been just the ticket.

Was it Louis Gossett Jr? He was the bomb in Toy Soldiers.

I misread the first line as, I read somewhere that emails are the strongest memory trigger humans have, and felt a twinge of existential despair.

This is a sweet story, charming, and I laughed at the effective use of blubb-o-text. I guess my comment would be that there has to be a better segue from the lovely little girls to your childhood memory, and also that it’s important not to try to force the epiphanic moment. I think your story can culminate in a moment of climactic insight into a truth about the human condition without announcing “this is the climactic insight into a truth about the human condition.” If you build it, he will come, so to speak. Thanks for the story.

The more they profile this guy, the more they present going down in infamy as a viable life plan. This is what I think should happen, and it should happen today. The media never again mentions the name of this gunman, or any gunman in a subsequent or past mass murder of this ilk. There is a radical publication ban. The media coverage deals only with the dead, and the gunman is never referred to as anything other than "the gunman." I sincerely believe the appeal of this crime would radically diminish.

Not precisely zombies, but I’m going to work outside the lines and choose Girls by The Luna Brothers.

I intended to watch but didn't in the end because it just seemed loud and stressful. To me improv is like figure skating, the whole time I'm just flinching and covering my face with my hands and hoping nobody gets their face cut. When I was studying in Northern Quebec, I discovered that the Québécois play improv games and have teams and leagues, the whole bit. There was a lot of informal improv gaming, the way you might play D&D. I couldn't believe ordinary people could come up with those spur of the moment, frequently hilarious skits. I never had the guts to join in.

Everybody thought Richard Hatch was bugshit crazy for making all that noise, but now he's a valuable part of the BSG cast, playing a great character. Do what you have to do.
