How Do You Know When I Am Rendering?

The answer is, I blog like this.

So, the other evening I drunkenly emailed James Knapp, the author of his pretty brilliant "zombie" trilogy: State of Decay, The Silent Army, and Element Zero. You see, he killed a character I liked. So, being around midnight and these Pear cider bottles in the 'fridge colluded in in the act of my writing the author of those books an email. I, at some point, threatened to put "Leichenesser plasma flechettes" in Android Insurrection. James Knapp countered that they should be "laser-guided leichenesser plasma flechettes" which is, of course, patently ridiculous and overkill. Unless, of course, you don't want to deal with wind velocity and gravitational force affecting the trajectory of your flechette rounds. I'll have to talk to our cast about that. I kind of like not having to take the curvature of the Earth into account when I'm taking out a Mark IV combat drone...

Lookit Jeff Wills' blog. He talks about Chinese food. Plus apparently he's making some movie.
