I started seeing stuff about this “cult” in some of the magazines of the 70s, like CREEM and I recall, Rolling Stone but that I may be misremembering.

They obviously forgot to install the Illudium Q36 Explosive Space Modulator

The ending to NY 2140 is better than the journey. It could have benefitted from a little tighter editing. The Ministry for the Future came out last week and I will probably read it soon.  SPOILER ALERT: It’s about climate change.  Shocking, I know. Read more

Good sleep is an incredibly precious resource and I am glad to hear that you have been getting some. Good work!

The second one hasn’t been nothing, but you are right, it hasn’t been nearly as bad as the first one. I had night sweats and much worse aches with the first one. I thought maybe I was just dreading it too much and adjusting due to expectations, but if you had the same experience maybe the first one is always worse. I Read more

An earlier work from Kowal (before she started sending ladies to Mars). I enjoyed it quite a bit but it somehow lacked the emotional punch I think she was going for. Connie Willis would have had me in tears at the ending.

Huh, my first shingles shot knocked me on my ass for 3 days but the second one didn’t bother me at all.

On the sleep front, I got my second shingles vaccination yesterday and the muscle aches are pretty brutal.  Definitely better than getting shingles, but not fun.

I really enjoyed ST:E as well. Right after the “transporter room” it was all get out as it can be. Outside of Disney, this was one of the best engineered theme park experience/ride that I’ve been on. Read more

Does it take some sort of internal INN (Identify Nerd or Not) to figure out that someone is a nerd if they’re in one of the nerdiest single locations in the world?

having never been on this, what did the effect look like from the audience perspective? What kept you from seeing the room lift up?

I don’t gamble either and my problem is the same as that girl - everything is just so, so, fake and looks like nobody cared if it looked that way. I’d much rather go to Disney World where of course everything is fake, but looks real enough that you can tell people care about how it looks and real enough to briefly Read more

I’m so sad this is gone....although I count myself lucky that I was able to experience it at all.  For a Trek fan, it really was the best thing ever.

It was a fun experience, and I know people who were cast members. Quark’s Bar had decent “hamborgers” and a huge drink called a Warp Core Breach that steamed with dry ice in it.

I regret missing this. My wife wanted to take me, but I hated Vegas so much and had so many sub-par experiences there, I figured I would just be disappointed again. I was sulking and only wanted to go to Hoover Dam, since it meant getting out of Vegas.

I’m finally starting my Kindle First Read selection for this month. Had I realized it was by the author of The Einstein Prophecy I might have skipped it. That book was pretty meh.

The past week was not great but I got a slight cost of living adjustment on Fall 2020 paychecks (as compared to Spring 2020 paychecks) so not everything is the worst. Read more
