Émile Eisman-Semenowsky's "L'odalisque" shows a luscious maiden all dolled up, decked out, and laid out from enjoying her youth to the fullest. A lovely vision of young womanhood.

I've gotten started writing my story about two girls going to a cryogenic medical spa on Saturn, and I've already completed 6000 words of it! Woo!

This is my new piece "Bare tree and grey clouds at dusk", a landscape scene that is at once bleak and hopeful with possibility, every star through those clouds a new realm of existence.

"In the Artist's Studio" by Eugene Claude is a pleasant scene of a fair and pretty woman exercising her creative powers. Artsy girls are the best girls.

Novak Djokovic can enter Australia? Good, but he was lured there under fraudulent pretenses and then falsely imprisoned. If such crimes go unpunished, won't the perpetrators be emboldened to do the same and worse in the future? If I had the power I'd make an example of them.

This my piece "Golden explosion nebula", showing shards of golden stars peeking through a deep dark dust cloud in space. Quite pleased with this one.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau's "Biblis" is a striking vision; the landscape is already great, as is the pretty girl, but what really makes it special is how her gorgeously fair skin practically glows.

There are so many fine goods and services I'd like but can't spare the money to get; I wish I had more money. In that I'm far from alone; indeed, that might be the most common wish in the world today.

Moving the British parliament out of Westminister is a great idea, but it should be moved to a rotation of more outlying places (e.g. York, Cornwall, the Hebrides, etc.). Ideally outdoors on hilltops with only tents for shelter. Like the Norse things did. Let's have nomadic legislatures and central government offices dispersed throughout the country. Retvrn to tradition!

In America today you can barely do anything or be anybody outside of a couple of huge cities...which cost an arm and a leg to live in. Can't afford to live in them? Then screw you; you don't deserve to have anything. Blech.

I wonder what employers would make of my résumé: "Ballroom dancer who blogs, paints, tweets, writes sci-fi stories, and manages stock portfolio. No degree. No experience."

Pathways between two points range from infinitely long to infinitely short, and the breakthrough of warp technology was finding these short pathways and magnifying them to the macroscopic scale.

No idea about real life, but in my space-opera setting spacetime's large-scale structure emerges from the averaging of an infinitude of quantum-scale wormholes, i.e. the more you zoom in on space the more twisted its structure becomes, up to infinity at infinitely small scale.

As an aside, we should keep in mind that stars are naturally-occurring nuclear fusion reactors. How do we know that the cores of stars aren't already being linked through wormholes and being tapped as a source of power by alien races?

Just occurred to me that in my space-opera setting antimatter reactors across the cosmos could be linked by wormholes (like Internet communications are) to augment their power. Maybe that's a development that only becomes economically viable with more advanced warp technology.

This is my piece "Joy among the clouds", depicting a girl in the throes of erotic rapture, not only feeling like she's floating on a cloud, but also actually doing so. I love the vibe in this one.

Édouard Bisson's "Winter" is a charming vision of a beautiful girl with long flowing brunette hair and a pleasant round face, lonesomely perched on winter's stark foggy landscape.

So many people love to hate the idea of a universal basic income, but $1000 a month would honestly just go some of the way toward repaying the damage, the injury, the pain, the suffering the regime inflicts upon all of us. It's not welfare, it's reparations.

A tire pressure sensor cost me $70, which the US government mandates to "keep us safe"; you know, because you can't tell if a tire is flat or not without some buzzer going off in your ears. Yet another example of how our society and its regime hates drivers, and hates me.
