  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I know the joke. I was adding my own twist....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Exactly!...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    What I would say is that the Democratic wildly flawed process is still better than the Republican wildly flawed process. But the best thing I can say about Hillary Clinton is that I voted for the right lizard. But we're...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Now you know how we felt about Clinton vs. Trump, or as I called it, Satan vs. Cthulhu; all the bad choices of decades from two major parties dragging your discourse and your choices from "poor" all the way down...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Thanks for the effort, but I thought merely asking the question made the point very nicely. That being said, a small nitpick; the issue is the difference between the current carbon in the atmosphere and the historical carbon in the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Or consider that we are already believing that we can "survive" a major man made disaster in global warming, and that a large part of the indifference western society is on the basis that it is primarily going to hurt...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    In the meantime, has anyone NOT noticed that ... The "prosperity gospel" is in EXACT diametrical opposition to the cnetral text of christianity, the "Sermon on the Mount"? So, how do these bastards get away with that? Could it be......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I think a great deal of what goes on essentially involves Russia feeling insecure (note that I was diplomatic and did not use the word paranoid) and that an agreement involving Russia's border countries might alleviate that to some extent....

    "There's got to be a pony in here somewhere!" Yeah. It keeps saying "Nay."...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    The problem with both the Chinese effort to "re-educate" the Uighers and also with Stalin's effort to unite Russia, is that the proper filters were not applied. If you're showing something like 15-percent of the population as "recidivists" (or whatever)...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Just to add one thing to the comments about Godzilla, King of the Monsters, which is that it's very, very worth watching in the sense of metaphor, subtext, or "what is the zeitgeist/global subconscious doing," but watch it on video....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I wrote the following about it to a friend, months ago. Aside from my late addition of comparing the selection of The Alpha to the Democratic primaries, it encapsulates the good and bad about the movie. THE GOOD THINGS: Definitely...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    That would be the most recent Godzilla movie, the one which was made in the U.S....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Something to keep in mind when the Kaiju come. I thought Trump was Ghidorah and we were just waiting for Democrats to pick their Alpha....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Is Liv Tyler too old? I'd love to see her put on some ears again....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I do like the word "Uruks" as applied to human......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Orlando Bloom as the All-Highest?...
  • Commented on Creative writing challenge!
    "You can get anything you want at Ukrainian restaurants!"...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Though tbh I simply cannot foresee if there was a successful strategy for the Alphar to win, ever. The smart move would have been to open a gate in Trafalgar Square with safeties engaged on all their weapons and immediately...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    First of Spies and Liars adapted so quickly because she was able to essentially absorb Cassie's memories and attitudes. But what's also worth noting is that despite the Alfar's idea that they were 'strong' Cassie's actual lived experience was more...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    The real beauty of the book is how you made the "incompetent leader sends incompetent follower" tropes not just palatable, but delicious, (and worthy of several rereads as of this point.) Of course, your books are frequently (and deliciously) about...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    RICO them all. Agreed. Though when I was writing $PreviouslyUnfinishedBook I had them all die in a fire sometime in 2036....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I believed that trope in Nightmare Stacks because it was obvious that the All-Highest wasn't getting good intelligence. He might have made considerably better decisions if Cassie had, for example, had sent him some wikipedia pages having to do with...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Seveneves didn't impress. I got a bit of the feeling that the story logic went something like, "Contractully speaking, I owe a book, and I'm not feeling particularly inspired... so what if the moon blows up?"...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I would have said arrest the entire Republican Party in the U.S., but I think that would amount to more-or-less the same thing....

    Happy Birthday Charlie. Many happy returns of the day. - Trout....
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    Not quite. A pubic wig is pronounced "merkin." An American who is ignorant, etc., is pronounced "maarehken" with a very heavy accent on the first syllable. And you can hint, just a tiny bit, that there is a leading "a"...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    Trump says the whole Ukraine thing was Perry's fault. Beyond that I know not....
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    Exactly. The real advantage of an impeachment is that it allows the case against Trump to be made twice; first in the House, then in trial in the Senate. The effects on the 2020 election will be quite powerful. But...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Why yes, teenage me was a horrible rules-lawyer when playing AD&D. :-) I would doubtless have enjoyed making sure that your character was killed horribly by rabid wombats....
