Name: rich Source: unca20060606.htm Brian said, "Would you be concerned about [Dan Simmons' April Message] constituting a scare story, anti-Christian rabble-rousing, or whatever it is you're suspecting behind Dan Simmons' story?" If a bunch of Christians hijacked some planes and crashed them into t...

Name: rich Source: unca20060606.htm Fuck it. Barber's answer is as good as any, it's in a (apparently) vetted paper that attributes its source to the World Watch Institute, and it's succinct. Also, it looks like you'll have to wade through some World Watch Institute papers if you want the primary s...

HARLAN,
Yes, by all means, use the "Rich as coffee table/monstrosity" as you see fit. It would be an honor. And it's Weems...Rich Weems. (Nope. Still doesn't sound as good as "Bond...James Bond" no matter how many times I say it.)

Name: rich Source: unca20060606.htm I want it all published. The shit I couldn't get published (which is basically everything I've ever written) and the one paragraph fragments that may be WAR AND PEACE, or just something that possibly could've been written by Sidney Sheldon or whomever's churning ...

Name: rich Source: unca20060606.htm I'm not sure I understand the rancor with the term "sci-fi". I understand HE's reluctance to be labeled "sci-fi" as most of what he produces isn't "sci-fi", but, then again, I don't think he'd like to be labeled "zucchini" either. So what really is the hubbub bet...

Name: rich Source: unca20060606.htm "Those that took the full course would eventually achieve a state of 'empty'." Something similar occurs after satiating oneself at the Golden Corral buffet.

Name: rich Source: unca20060606.htm Neal, I started to go into different reasons for visiting the cities (and country) you mentioned, but, fuck it, no one really cares about the rationalizations so I'll just say it: Barcelona-Cannes, 'cause that's where I want to go. Personally, stay away from Lond...

Name: rich Source: unca20060606.htm Personally, I woulda thought that "a guilty pleasure" had "like" somewhere in there. So, for me, Brian's first rationalization is the correct one, and the second one is trying too hard. By the way, if Harlan comes back and says something along the lines of the se...

Name: rich Source: unca20060606.htm It's quite possible that only the assholes will question Harlan Ellison on his standards. However, considering what's been posted on here when HE first brought up his now-solved dilemma, it should not come as a shock to anyone that questions will be raised. For e...

Name: rich Source: unca20060606.htm I'm gonna weigh in on the middle of the fence here. The way I see it, if someone asked me to borrow my copy of a book, a film, or whatever, I usually ended up loaning it out. Especially if I know that person. You've done it and I've done it. We've all done it, an...

Name: rich Source: unca20060316.htm I know you guys want to beat the discussion of Spielberg and his films into the ground, but I thought I'd try to steer the conversation to another point that hasn't been debated to smithereens yet. Annie Proulx is apparently upset that CRASH won best picture when...

Name: rich Source: unca20060316.htm Heaven help me, but Rob is right. And since I seem to be the only heterosexual white male fan of Tom Cruise on the planet, I thought he did a fine job in WAR OF THE WORLDS. (The ending on the other hand...really did almost spoil the movie for me.) One other thing...

Name: rich Source: unca20060316.htm It was while working with Tom Cruise on DAYS OF THUNDER that I really understood what a great smiler TC was. (Those of us that know Tom Cruise--truly know him--call him TC. No relation or misunderstandings with Roger Mosley intended.) So I'm working as an actual ...
