Getting nostalgic for when the left attacked marriage as an outdated institution instead of holding it up as the most important right ever.
While we have the image in our heads of large, lumbering dinosaurs, most weren’t very large at all. The majority were microscopic.
Been following reviews for my novel Superego on a number of different sites. It’s done best on Amazon – 4.7.
Amazon has some rating selection bias since you have to write a review to rate, so I think people who love or hate it most motivated.
Superego has done well on Goodreads. Not as familiar with the site, but don’t have to write review to rate.
The most ratings for Superego are on Audible.com. Also, the only two negative ratings.
Actually, I consider 3-stars a negative rating. That’s two whole stars of not liking it.
Anyway, on Audible, you have to own the book under Audible to rate it, but you don’t have to write a review.
I wouldn’t blame the narrator. I think he did a great job and got the tone right (and has been rated high in the reviews).
The only one star review (on Audible) wrote a review, and it’s pretty easy to dismiss him as crazy.
This is all very interesting. I’m used to instant feedback, but a novel is years to getting back what people think about it.
I’m really happy any read or enjoyed it at all, and I’m looking forward to getting out my next novel which I’m finishing up now.
Oh, and for everyone who’s enjoyed Superego so far, I’m working on a cool new project for it…
And a sequel to Superego is planned. Just need to finish up a couple other books first.
Once I got past the Yahoo Screen streaming issues, I’ve been absolutely loving the new episodes of Community.
Community has taken such a beating through the years (cast changes, losing show runner, cancellation), yet it still keeps finding its center.
We’re not taking religion out of marriage. We’re asking government to enforce one religious view over another.
If you believe in any parameters about marriage, you have a religious view on marriage. Non-religious view is “what the hell is marriage?”
That’s why current path we’re on is absolute nonsense (especially from libertarian perspective) and a recipe for continued conflict.
It’s like asking the government decide what constitutes a proper baptism and requiring others to participate.
Worth repeating: if you support the idea of the government defining what a marriage is, you’re a bad libertarian.
Bad, libertarian. Bad. *rolls up Constitution and hits libertarian on the nose*
Who wants a science fiction award given in honor of Hugo Chavez?
The SJWs attract all the craven people these days because you get to blame your lack of compassion on others.
“Love is love” is a really inane argument about marriage. For one, you should love lots of people, but you don’t marry them all.
And to say marriage should have anything to do with love is taking a religious view about it, and if the floor is open to religious views…
Another thing that should be obvious: If you’re not for plural marriages, then you place some value on the Christian view on marriage.
I’m usually libertarian, but I think you should have to submit a form proving extreme need before making a movie longer than 90 minutes.
The movie Lucy had too much gobbledygook for me. Was action movie with a 2001: A Space Odyssey ending.
I can put up with bad science and flighty philosophy if there was more tension and cool action sequences. #Lucy
Had pictures of me taking from various angles while making different expressions. Been a lot of new experiences this year.
Everyone should be reading Superego right now. What else could you be doing that is possibly more important?
Does Sally Kohn think a cigarette tax is government force? Because I’m pretty sure a guy got strangled over that.
If we had to hold a gun to someone’s head every time we wanted to force someone to do something, our arms would get tired. So we made laws.
Even more insistent than a personal trainer is a little kid yelling, “Do it again!”
Better Call Saul season finale was weird. Like almost Buffy season 4 finale weird. Definitely on board for next season, though.
