…well, I don’t want to say just yet. But it’s pretty cool. It’s a new gig. I actually have a title this time that means something. And you may be seeing more of me than usual….
A lot of people have been linking to Warren’s post “The Patchwork Years“. I thought you might be interested in something I emailed him back in January, which is my take on the ideas he’s exploring in his post. (Which is to say, great minds think alike.) I think this email was occasioned by this […]
Effects guru Stan Winston dies of cancer at 62 – Yahoo! News Oh, man. Stan Winston was one of my few real heroes when I was a kid — his work on Terminator and Aliens and T2 and Jurassic Park was a lot of the reason I got into movie FX and, later, computer graphics […]
I’m not really much of a gamer. I was when I was a kid, back in the Stone Age, and I’ve had my periods of obsessive game play as an adult, though it was more linked to specific games (Half-Life, American McGee’s Alice, GTA: Vice City, Tomb Raider) than to a desire to game in […]

I’m down at the Griffin, using my futurephone to blog. The fact that I’m blogging outside instead of partying inside ought to tell you how exciting my evening has been.
I broke down and got a new phone account. Luckily, the security deposit was a helluva lot less than I thought it would be — only $150 — so I now have an AT&T account. I opted for the 900 minute, 200 texts, unlimited data plan, because having push e-mail access on the Nokia futurephone […]
