I am outraged, I tell you. Outraged that Star Wars Episode VII does not have one single naturally bald man in the cast. I see plenty of hair styles represented.

Sure, I have no idea whether the […]Read more "The Biases in the Casting for Star Wars Episode VII"

Also, we’ll use the opportunity to plug the podcast, so there’s that. Probably cave and buy some things too, as […]Read more "Today I Am At AwesomeCon"
WAR! On our most recent Words With Nerds, Craig and I compared notes about training music. It was civil, it was fun and it was informative. Each person has their likes and dislikes—I tend to go for the driving, martial stuff along with some techno-flavor and instrumental soundtrack goodness (including the works of John Williams […]Read more "Training Music for the Montage of Our Lives"
