In May, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft took this somber image of Titan in transit across the face of its giant owner, Saturn.
I have a fondness for Kurt Vonnegut’s 1959 novel, The Sirens of Titan, my first introduction… Read full post »
How easily you get used to complete, unquestioning acceptance. Unalterable kindness. Quietly, they sink into the ocean of a busy life. And sweet comes in countless flavors, too often ignored.
So wrap up the gentle, silky fur of commonplace adoration, mixed with the soul of an angel in need, and… Read full post »
Otto Decker’s Family, 1962
Still, there are some childhood memories of feeling distant from him, of wondering who this stranger was in our house. Those feelings are long gone, but it’s odd I had them since he was and… Read full post »
ABC’s tag line for promoting this one:
‘Two Words, ME OW!’
Ever since this one came up on our competitor’s reel (here @work), there’s been some debate about who would watch this and whether it will become popular. Yeah, the word ‘Cougar&… Read full post »
Um, no, not this guy:
Plain old...data. I like data. You should, too. Let’s spread the word. The government just gave us a whole bunch of it and they’re giving us more soon.
As you may have heard the latest Star Trek movie hits theaters this Friday. But you haven’t seen this new ‘reboot’ version covered until you’ve seen it covered by The Onion:

For those in love with the works of William Shakespeare, or even just for history buffs in general, there’s been some pretty cool news lately.
I love E. E. Cummings. Back in November, I actually attempted an essay to my wife for our wedding anniversary – using some ideas and feelings from this poem of his.

I love running. Or rather, I used to.
My broadcasting and film degrees brought me to my current home in L.A. along with my first job in the motion picture industry. It’s a business that can easily swallow your life whole, and at times, this was true for me. But… Read full post »
It’s a pretty nifty trick Tina Fey and company have pulled off, putting a screwball comedy on TV – one that manages to capture current zeitgeist no less – in the middle of downward trending viewership and reality TV.
As often happens with TV sh… Read full post »
The Universe in Your Eyes
In the time before time
With no up and no down
No in or around
All that is now could not be found
When ises were wases
And will bes were now
Even light had no purchase
No matter, no sound
The breath of your life

Well I guess change has come to America, but it’s certainly come to the White House official website. At 12 Noon EST, minutes before the President took the oath of office, the site quietly changed over. Looks promising.
I don’t think I’m alone when I say I don’t want to see this country’s newfound hopes for a transformative gove… Read full post »
I still think about our wedding.
Do you know the small parts of moments, when everything opens up, the world spins that much slower and people are frozen in time? There were so many of them that day.
This November brings a fifth year removed from then, from our first… Read full post »

Hidden from view, shrouded by flags, secretly they arrive. More than can easily be counted.
Homecomings in boxes, each one alike, returning the mangled mess of our love; our beautiful children, our love of each other, love for the world.
But where are the tears? Can you hear their… Read full post »
