Body/Horror: Forced Feminization in the Movie “(Re)Assignment”

The other day, my wife told me about a new movie coming out in 2017.  “(Re)Assignment”.  I’ll give you the IMDB summary: Following an ace assassin who is double crossed by gangsters and falls into the hands of rogue surgeon known as The Doctor who turns him into a woman. The hitman now a hitwoman sets out for revenge, aided… Read more »

Vote Your Conscience

LeeW   July 21, 2016   Comments Off on Vote Your Conscience

I voted for Bernie  in the primary  (you probably knew that already) but I will be backing Hillary  in November.  However much I would prefer Bernie, the consequences of a Trump presidency are just too horrific to contemplate unless you’re some straight white guy who’s willing to sieg hell his way through it. So, for those of you who are going to vote Green, or… Read more »

The Smartest Thing…

…that Hillary Clinton could do would be to name Bernie Sanders as her running mate.  Whether she likes it or not,  whether he likes it or not, it is the best way to heal the rift in the Democratic Party.  Forget, for while at least, that the DNC and the Democratic Party nomination process needs a serious reboot.  Put aside,… Read more »

Numbers Game

Back in 2008 I voted for Hillary Clinton.  Obama was an unknown to me and, while I found him charismatic, I backed Hillary because she was the Democratic candidate with policies closest to my own.  So I was unhappy, to say the least, when she failed to get the nomination.  It was also the first time that the word “super delegate” made… Read more »

Under Construction

The Anyúvin language is undergoing some revision to reflect it’s “linguistic heritage.”   This will, of course, involve a certain degree of re-writing for the posted stories. Speaking of which, I will be moving them to static pages.  Shouldn’t impact what you see, but it will make my life easier.  Also, I will be adding an Anyúvin lexicon to the… Read more »

Thanks to all who attended my presentation on conlangs for fiction.  I hope these slides prove useful. HonorCon2015 However, if you’re serious about constructed languages, you should invest in David J. Peterson’s “The Art of Language Invention.”   Be prepared, there’s a lot to learn from it and it isn’t all going to fall in  place right off.  Still, he writes… Read more »

Social Justice Warrior

LeeW   August 31, 2015   Comments Off on Social Justice Warrior

I see no conflict between social justice and free speech.  Indeed, one cannot have one without the other.  Setting these two things in opposition, only guarantees that, in the end, we will have neither.  We cannot have social justice if the oppressed are not free to speak of their oppression.  We cannot have free speech if one group, by dint… Read more »

So, I ran across (and bought) a couple of Christy Grandjean’s “wolf people” prints.  This is my favorite, since it comes so close to how I imagine the Anyuvin.  Not precisely, but scarily close.   I’m seriously hoping she’ll do a book cover for me. In the meantime, you can see more of her work here.

Norton Knows What You Want…

I own a Windows PC for one reason, and one reason only: gaming.  So, why is that Norton Internet Security (in its infinite wisdom) won’t let me install my gorram games?  Yeah, Steam games install and update just fine.  Stuff I get on DVDs does OK, but step away from those two paradigms and you are, apparently, screwed. What do… Read more »

On Moving On

LeeW   August 24, 2015   Comments Off on On Moving On

So, I’ve never paid much attention to the Hugos and I haven’t really been following the whole Sad/Rabid Puppies debacle, but apparently an attempt to pack the Hugo nominee list with right wing writers failed big time.  There may be hope for the world yet. I can generally get along with an old school conservative, (you know, the kind who… Read more »
