Hello everyone, old and new. It has been a while since my last post, and for that I'm sorry. Sorry mostly because of the joy I get from writing, but returning to the keyboard has never felt so good. Thank you for the birthday wishes (you know who you are) and to those new to the site, welcome to my blog. I hope that my time away from the keyboard has not dulled my ability, especially in light of my topic for this blog. Afterall, I'll need all faculties to take on this topic: Love.

James Cameron is the master of action they say. Indeed, some call him the father of modern action films. (Does that make Michael Bay the bastard stepchild?) However at his core, his movies are enduring, endearing, and timeless love stories, that touch us in ways …
Sci-fi by definition is Fiction. Duh, it's right there in the name. However just because something does not exist doesn't mean that it never will. If anything history tells us that once we dream it up, we make it happen. It may take months, years, decades, or even a century, but time after time we have proven that the impossible is not as absolute as we thought.
I believe that this is why James Cameron paints such beautiful stories in our imaginations: because the fiction he portrays go far beyond just ordinary fiction. He is not alone in this either. Many film-makers, novelists, illustrators, and other artists have pushed the boundaries of disbelief by showing us something that CAN happen, and very likely WILL happen. That is why we are so…Read more >
Hello friends. Forgive my absence, but life outside the technosphere has been quite active, and to my chagrin I have not been able to write my blogs as diligently as I would normally wish. However, I still come on each day and read what you all have to say, and try to comment when I can. That being said, I have much to say, having kept much inside for a while.
Destiny is a tricky word. Many people use it in the sense that their actions have been preordained and that there is little choice in what they do and what they can acomplish. It implies that there is a greater force shaping their lives. Some others use destiny as the end of the road, and that even though we have choice in our actions, it will eventually lead us to the same point rega…Read more >
There is a growing buzz in the media community, enough to rival the surging interest in 2012 activities (which I will for the time being leave out of this discussion), and that is the idea of interaction with other species and civilizations. Two of the leading experts on extraterrestrial interaction in particular have been getting an increased amount of attention because of their widely varying opinions on the matter: the brilliant Stephen Hawking, and the late Carl Sagan (1934-1996).
Hawking is one of the highest regarded scientists alive today and has left an indelible impact on modern astrophysics. He has become popular as the "inventor of the black hole" and is known for best selling book "A Brief History of Time". He has re-entered the…Read more >
Over the past month or so, more and more news articles have been emerging about possible release dates for the Avatar sequels. I understand many of you may be despondent about the increasing number of reports and press releases that we may not see another Avatar movie until around 2014. However, I for one love the Avatar series and want to see it done right, rather than to have James Cameron rush into hasty production of sequels and have a beloved film franchise go the way of Star Wars or Indiana Jones.
James Cameron, arguably one of the finest, and inarguably one of the most influential film-makers of all time, is a shining example of determination, dedication, and perseverance. The man who went from a truck driver to directing the two hig…Read more >
