Maiden's Prayer Out of the Darkness

Image
Another long-unavailable story I wrote years ago is now up for free at Wattpad. "Maiden's Prayer" was my first story featuring Terrence Bledsoe and/or Ella Dodge (the second story is available in Crime Factory: First Shift). I placed my Hollywood fix-it man story years ago (long before Ray Donovan) at the now-defunct Darkness Before the Dawn.

Battle of the Planets

Image
With the success of Netflix’s Voltron re-imagining, I keep thinking about one of my all-time dream projects…writing for a new Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (or Battle of the Planets or G-Force, if you prefer one of its many other titles/incarnation) anime...or manga...or comic book...or light novel. Hell, I just want to write Gatchaman.

"Japanese priest and techno DJ, Gyōsen Asakura, has created a temple devoted to techno. "Based in Fukui City in Japan, the Shō-onji templed throws 'techno memorial services' with Asakura leading the monthly Buddhist-style ceremonies."

The Taking of Tiger Mountain

Image
Finally watched Tsui Hark's The Taking of Tiger Mountain on a Netflix. It's a ridiculous amount of fun. It's basically an Alistair MacLean novel set in China after the surrender of the Japanese during WWII. So if you're a fan of those "men on a mission" movies they don't really make anymore, you need to check this one out.

Anti-Intellectual?

Image
Is it really that Americans are particularly "anti-intellectual" or does most of what we tend to label "anti-intellectual" have everything to do with frustrations over class, rising income inequality, and college becoming ever more unafforable?

Personally, I think it's the latter.
