In case you ever wondered just how effective a unicorn could be at, you know, doing serious damage to its opponents...here's a video in which a bunch of blacksmiths decide to create a chamfron for the My Little Pony character Rainbow Dash, and then demonstrate what sort of a weapon they've made.

On Writing: Playing God With Your Creations

Don't kill your darlings.  Torture them instead--it's much more fun!


Not too long ago, we had a short discussion here about whether or not writers are gods.  I'm of the opinion that we are--at least so far as being creators of universes, and the beings that populate them.  We give life and form to collections of words, and through the skill of our magic, we get other people to believe in our creations, to care about what happens to them, and to become emotionally involved with people and places that don't really exist.

Real Science: NASA Feathers Back Estimate on New Rocket

I found this article this morning, ironically whilst drinking my coffee from a NASA cup.  The estimate for the debut of the new heavy-lifting rocket, by which NASA hopes to reach Mars, is being pushed back from 2017 to 2018, in order for the space agency to be "70% sure" of its success.

Well, after much goading and assertions that "the trailers don't do it justice, go see this film, you'll love it," and after several false starts due to car trouble and sceduling conflicts, The Husband and I finally got to go see "Guardians of the Galaxy" at a matinee showing in a nearly deserted ampitheatre-style cinema here in San Antonio.  In other words, we had the place to ourselves, so we felt kinda priviledged.

The Husband called me from work and asked if I'd like to go see "Guardians of the Galaxy" tonight.  Honestly, I have to say--no.  I looked up the trailers on YouTube, and if the trailer is supposed to make you want to see a movie, then these two failed spectacularly--at least in my case.
