Man about town.
C&B: With all the people involved, I think Nerdfight is more of an event podcast than a regular show. But I know they're recording a new one this weekend at WonderNW.
Oblivion pulls off the great sci fi trick of being visceral and thought provoking while also being incredibly derivative of other, better films. I loved it, but it's hard to say if there was an original thought in there.
Well PDXCurmudgeon, I suppose the point I was trying to make is that reviewing unpublished work without consent is kind of a dick move. It happens to leaked scripts and things like that from time to time, but these are not big Hollywood players.
The distinction that I would make is that I talked to all of the authors beforehand, and they sent me their work with the knowledge that I was going to present it in a public forum like this.
I also made the decision to state my issues with the WW as clearly as I could in a few paragraphs and then move on to the actual writing, as my intent was mostly to focus on the written work and not sling (too much) mud or aggrandize my burgeoning fiction career.
That said, I worked really hard on that Boat Cop story, jerk.
Well ROM, I had a good run. Thank you for calling it straight.
Thanks guys! This was a fun one to write.
@Melogna: Well we all are, but some of us are trying to keep that on the dl, you know?
@bluespdx: When I talked to the author via email he said his piece was an attempt to see if he could write something other than hard-ish sci-fi. I'd say mission accomplished.
@CC: BOAT COP WILL RETURN IN: TEARS OF A WEEKLY
"Supremacy" would be a terrible Bond song, but not a half bad Goldeneye 64 song.
