    So, yeah.  I’ve been bored.  I’ve been busy.  I’ve been busy being bored. So for this HACK I’m acting like a filter, sharing some of my favorite videos for nerds like us.  

Well it seems my plan of working on Time Warriors frequently enough for new posts each week is a bust.  Procrastination, sobriety and self-doubt are ever-present word snatchers.  Nevertheless, I am still writing, though not as fast as I’d like.  I realize that in the last post I talked about some things in Chapter 3 that […]

    The Surreal Calculator.  Not my invention.  It comes from a story that Noel Rogers wrote a long-ass time ago.  The Surreal Calculator was mentioned only once, in one sentence, with no description whatsoever.  I just loved the sound of the name, the possibilities of such a device.  It stuck in my brain all […]

Howdy Tulpas, welcome to the eighteenth edification of HACK.  If you’ve made it this far then you’ve probably heard the ol’ aphorism, “Brevity is the soul of wit” or in other words… Concise and exact use of words in writing or speech is the spiritual or immaterial part of mental sharpness and inventiveness.

Starting every Monday for the next 13 weeks, It’s The Crew! is proud to go […]

Greetings Grokkers, welcome to the sixth edition of HACK. If you’ve made it this far, better buckle up and remember—it’s just a ride.

The ramblings of a door to door merkin salesman: This month marks the rebirth of It’s the Crew and I’m honored to have been asked to make regular written contributions. For reasons yet unborn and likely irrational – I’ve been fearing writing this piece. Days of DXM drenched naked introspection have brought a cornucopia of […]

From God Emperor of Dune by Frank Herbert: “The ritual is called Siaynoq-the Feast of Leto. It is the adoration of my person in my presence.””An ancient ritual, Lord?” “It was with the Fremen before they were Fremen. But the keys to the Festival secrets died with the old ones. Only I remember them now. […]
