Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys) with me before getting into wardrobe as Dr. Martin Vreeland on the set of Alongside Night.
One noteworthy scene in the film is Dr. Vreeland receiving a Nobel prize in economics for saving Europe as America collapses, given by the king of Sweden played by David Friedman, the son of […]

Tom Paine’s Common Sense.
 A preliminary statement by Brad Linaweaver and J. Kent Hastings on behalf of their mutual friend, J. Neil Schulman.
Dear fellow libertarians, for some reason unknown to us, Neil Schulman thinks that our opinions will carry some weight in the current libertarian civil war between open source and IP. Since one of […]

Twelve Trolls a Trolling

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

“JeffTheAlmighty,” a YouTuber who appreciates the “J. Neil Schulman and His Trolls” show on IMDB, has gone mad and invested work into the creation of a video titled “The Twelve Days of Schulman.”
Among other things, Neil does political writing (the video’s “conspiracy theories” line?). Schulman just published an attack on Bill O’Reilly for his wrongheaded […]

Months in the Media Maze

Monday, October 17th, 2011

It’s been over a month since I wrote a blog post, but that does not mean I have not been busy. Or not. Wtf?
I worked on two movie projects, a magazine, an audio dramatization series and got a new ham radio.
First, there was the FT817ND transceiver I bought from Ham Radio Outlet. It’s backpackable, runs […]

It’s Time For War With China

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Let’s stop pussyfooting in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and even the Iran invasion to come. These “nations” are quickly smashed and their occupation is hardly worth the trouble.
Egypt might take a month or so to crack if we decided to take them on for the militant Islamic extremism that hasn’t quite been revealed–yet.
But why waste time […]

“Whither Conservation in the 21st Century:

Growbot or Not?

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

Some hardcore wilderness experts and other traditionalists scoff at depending upon battery powered mobile devices in the bush (”Calling Technology’s Bluff“), despite things like backpack solar cells for recharging them in the field.
Others embrace the new capabilities, many of which will work just fine even without online access.
For example, here are some iPhone apps for […]

The Secret True Truth

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

Revealed by Brad Linaweaver:
The scales have fallen from my eyes. It is now perfectly clear that anarchists, minarchists, Objectivists, constitutional conservatives, right wing radio and the Tea Party are all in on a secret Islamic conspiracy.
Agorism is the worst of all.
Of course, I have an unfair advantage. As one of the culprits myself, let me […]

Survivalism for Musicians

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

At Boing Boing, Cory Doctorow posted “Indie Band Survival Guide: soup-to-nuts, no-BS manual for 21st century artistic life.” The post clearly explains how the success of the authors with their band (named there) makes them “in the scene” and qualified to write on the topic. (Nobody can say I hijacked this “hot news,” even though […]

Not Enough Dutch Criminals, Prisons Close

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

Here’s a link to an article at the Marijuana Policy Project by way of a Facebook friend’s link, “Netherlands to Close Prisons: Not Enough Criminals.”
MPP makes a logical argument against the bogus drug war claim that legalization increases drug related crime. Quite the contrary. During alcohol prohibition, the murder rate doubled and gangsters flourished. After […]

The following excerpt from Worden’s talk asserts that advocating anarchy is easier than selling “minarchy” (SEK3’s coinage) :
“Advocating anarchy is more practical than advocating minimal […]
