Valérian #1

Valérian and Laureline, spatio-temporal Galaxity agents, are playing chess when they’re called by the head of the space-time department. They’re told that Xombul has escaped from prison taking with him a space-time spaceship. He is located in New York in 1986, where the world is experiencing a global collapse, a cataclysm: the explosion of an H bomb in the Arctic is changing the climate of the Earth. Valérian heads off in search of Xombul. Amazon gave me #1, #25, and some other random issue of this series, of which I had no experience with. I was somewhat interested in the...



Directed by M.J. Bassett. With Megan Fox, Philip Winchester, Greg Kriek, Brandon Auret. O’Hara is a mercenary leading a squad of soldiers on their mission to rescue hostages in remote part of Africa. Unfortunately the mission goes wrong and the team are stranded, forced to survive against the local rebels. Bad CGI aside, this was a perfectly mediocre film that used nearly every badass lady trope that I know. Megan Fox was able to do it somewhat convincingly, at least she was more real than the lions in the film. Buy On Amazon!

I turned 40 last Thursday, I had a steak and potatoes meal, expertly cooked by my dear wife. It was followed by apple pie with ice cream. One of my cats continues to be sick and I’m not really sure what more I can do for her, she’s lost so much weight since we stopped leaving dog food down a year ago after my last dog died. I’m hoping she’ll take a better turn soon. I continue to be frustrated beyond belief by companies like Facebook and Google that provide services but no customer support at all. I’m dumping Facebook,...


Ballistic (The Palladium Wars Book 2)

  “I gulped down Ballistic in one long read, staying awake half the night, and now I want the next one!” -George R. R. Martin There is a personal price to pay for having aligned with the wrong side in a reckless war. For Aden Jansen it’s the need to adopt a new identity while keeping his past hidden. Now he’s integrated himself aboard the Zephyr, a merchant ship smuggling critical goods through dangerous space. But danger is imminent on planet Gretia, as well. Under occupation, torn between postwar reformers and loyalists, it’s a polestar for civil unrest. Meanwhile an...


Life Magazine, September 11, 2001

As never before, it was a tale of two years. Through September 10, the United States was a nation at peace, moving leisurely through a year in which not terribly much was happening. Sharks and movie stars and an economic malaise dominated small-sized headlines. Then, in a moment, everything changed. The country, visited by an unspeakable horror, was plunged into an altered universe. Terror, death and war were constants in the New Normal. Here, in vivid imagery, is the story of that year — of those years. A quick read, if you’re only looking at the words, this was part...

Getting Gas & Beer

Went to get my weekly poison at the local gas & chug and was facing the register, had a guy come up and tap me on the shoulder (yes, he touched me, in the time of covid), and said it was great to see another tall guy, then offered his hand to shake. I said “No Thank You” and paid for my beer, then went to my car and just sat there for a minute. What just happened?
