This is just too weird not to share. Essential background info - I was reading a thread on the kitebuilder.com forum about the early days of KAP (Kite Aerial Photography). One link led to another, and while I was waiting for something to finish loading I got up to do some dishwashing. While I was do...

Some great stuff there. Somewhere I have a dead tree substrate copy of one of the earlier collections.

My favourite line from the whole book had something to the effect of "... as his eyeballs slid slowly down the front of her dress."

Euugh. :?

I meant the snow. In my humble opinion, I don't think it buys you much. My personal tastes lead to clean rather than cluttered. Don't get me wrong, I think it's cool, but I'd take the speediness over the cool factor. My motto is "just because you can doesn't mean you should". But if you want to sho...

There is some practical help I could use too: Does anyone know why my site doesn't show up on Google? Google "Free Mode Media" and this thread shows up, but my actual site doesn't. (The irony!) I submitted the URL to Google a couple of days ago and I've got keyword and description tags in the code ...

One thing about the HRP-4C as a runway/fashion model ... she looks more normal than many biological runway models.

This story strongly reminded me of Drabblecast 26, Patricia Russo's CRAZY. Strange- I thought it had a very Marblesy vibe. I instantly thought of Richard Matheson's 1950 short (1,245 words) story Born of Man and Woman , one of my all-time favourite short stories, evar . But I got better. You can re...

Re: good episode

It's always great to hear Mur read stuff. The main story was kind of a mix of I Robot (Robot City) and Jacob's ladder. Well sort of. Maybe not. My first thought was of Asimov's Robbie (1940 - robot rushes in front of speeding whatever to save former owner's child), except that this time we get to he...

Dude. He's got it made. Either:

A. They can't prove he's a wizard, and he gets to keep his job.
or
B. They do prove he's a wizard, and he collects $1M from James Randi.

Re: beasty

Once they get the arm-swinging thing figured out, the HRP-4C will become much more uncanny . Personally I prefer a different tact for anthropomorphizing - why personify when bestial forms are more elegant in motion? Check this recent model: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYptK21vAgQ That's sorta cut...

I think generally you either have to put SFX everywhere, as in a radio drama, or nowhere. When it's only heard occasionally, I find that it causes me to disengage from the story. If you're going to have all of the sounds though, maybe that means you also have to have a full cast. I dunno. As far as ...

My iPod used to be filled with obscure Indie music, Industrial, '60s Rock, and Classical music. Now it's about 40% Surf Guitar music, 10% Classical (mostly late 19th-early 20th C chamber music), 20% podiobooks, and 30% podcasts. Oh, and a couple of selections from some Tuvan throatsinging CDs.
