Alright people! My second book is now up on Amazon. I'm pretty pumped about it. This one is a lot better than my first book, if I don't say so myself.
This one has more aliens, more space battles, and the introduction of our first villain. The dastardly Black Brewskie!
It's a ton of fun, I hope you like it.

Yay, my first book just went live on Amazon!
It's a superhero tale, the origin story of Maggie Cole and her pet submarine, Patty. It's got aliens and armored troopers, space battles and fistfights and there's a very poorly written love story.
So basically it's everything to everyone, anything to all people.
The sequel will be out soon, about a week. When I get it done I'll be redoing a bit of my blog to list my books on the right...or something. We'll see what my technical skills can achieve.

Dude! I love it when a movie delivers this hard. I went to a midnight showing. Picture me sitting there in the theater at a sneak preview with a bunch of teenagers* like a dirty old man laughing my ass off. Some of the teens were shocked by a few things, things I won't spoil, but I wasn't. I'm a hardened schlock fan and I devoured every minute of this movie.
Easily the best movie of the year, even though the year just started. This would have made my top 5 of last year too.
Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead are done so well I want to have a whole movie with just them. I CAN'T WAIT until this version of NTW gets her own comic. You know it'll happen!
I hugely (yuuugely) recommend this movie for any comic book or action movie fan. It's not much of a sci/fi piece, is somewhat of a romance piece, but mostly it's a straight forward superhero flick doused in spicy R-rated awesome sauce.
*They probably weren't teens. If you are under 25 you might as well be 12 to me. That's how old people get I guess, first sign of senility.

Watching this documentary. It's about how the cattle industry and animal agriculture drives a lot of enviro devastation.
Farm peeps know that agriculture is what eradicates habitat, that much is obvious. Not a lot of native species living in a watermelon field, that's for sure.
Did you know that just cow farts by themselves outrank car emissions as the driver of greenhouse gases? Not even mentioning messed up water run off and all of that, which kills fish. Also the fishing industry...the hell? They kill more pounds of sharks and whales and turtles and shit that people don't eat than they kill pounds of edible fish. Seriously. So says this documentary. That's pretty messed up.
Too many goddamn people.
When Issac Newton was alive there were around 600 million people on the planet. I always think about that number because for some reason I think of human progress and brain power being related to population. Year 1700, huge advances in science, huge push for intellectualism. Art, literature. A golden age. With less than 1/10th the population we have now.

|Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Kingsmen?|
Am I the only one that thinks Colin Firth could, and should, play Mr. Darcy here? He can totally kill zombies. Easy. And it's believable some young society lady would see his huge estate and fall in love with his money.
That's what happens in Pride and Prejudice right? Elizabeth sees his estate and suddenly Mr. Darcy is marriage material? He was always marriage material, obviously, but Elizabeth needs to see the estate first to be persuaded.
That's how I read it anyway. :-)
