My name's Brent. I'm 24 years old. I design slot machine games for a living. I like music, baseball, television, video games, mathematics, politics, reading, fantasy, and other stuff. Expect a lot of posts about Lord of the Rings, Bob Dylan, Beatles, Pink Floyd, my stupid lame as fuck feelings, and a bunch of other crap. Enjoy.

Being offended by the word “retard” is pretty retarded.

My own feeling is that science fiction, of all the different forms of literature, is the one that most easily accepts the notion of change. Things are changing very quickly, and any kid who thinks about it knows that the world in which he or she will be a grown-up — which he or she will be helping to run — will be considerably different from this one. Maybe better, maybe worse, but different. Science fiction explores the future world.

I think more and more young people are beginning to feel that science fiction is the kind of literature that a person interested in reality should be reading.

- Isaac Asimov

A while back, I asked why it is that some science fiction is so good at predicting the future. Far and away, the most common answer was because people who read science fiction are then inspired to make that future a reality.

Asimov knew that.

Arlo Guthrie - Lightning Bar Blues

I don’t need no diamond ring
I don’t need no Cadillac car
Just want to drink my Ripple wine
Down in the Lightning Bar
