A long time ago — in the 1990s (holy crap, 20 years ago!) — I was the co-host (with my very good pal Sean Meehan) of a radio show on KSCO/KOMY called “Brave New World: The Coliseum Of Cultural Evolution.”
We interviewed lots of cool and interesting people, like Peter Bart, editor of Variety, who talked with us about the trends in Hollywood film-making; WWF wrestler Mick Foley who had just released his first book; and William Gibson, who had just released the novel “All Tomorrow’s Parties.”
For all kinds of reasons, very few recordings or text of the show survive… but I’m stoked that we did capture the Gibson interview.
I’m still looking for the audio file, but in the meantime, here’s the transcript… enjoy!

Wow. Jerry Pournelle passed away.
What a character… I’ve got a few Jerry stories from back in the day…
I’ve already shared the Jerry/Ringworld story that his sometime writing partner Larry Niven shared with me about a million years ago, over here Continue reading R.I.P. Jerry Pournelle – And the infamous Ringworld and Squich Stories
All right, so… much as I was late to the amazing “BoJack Horseman,” I’m a little late to the Adult Swim series “Rick and Morty.”
While it’s a bit more absurdist rimshot theater than Bojack, it’s a smart and interesting show that traffics in some fun scifi tropes with a wink and a nod, while occasionally dipping into some pretty deep and thoughtful dialog, plumbing a variety of philosophical themes, largely existentialism.
First, a recap:
Translators work hard to protect the cinematic vision of the director, and the Literary vision of the author, when bringing film-based novels to international audiences.
Like anyone who loves giant monkeys and scary dinosaurs peppered with humor and buttloads of action, I’m super excited about the upcoming Kong: Skull Island release tomorrow (March 10 2017.) In fact, I’ve been telling everyone I can that the last trailer released for this film (below) is possibly one of the best edited and sound designed trailers EVAR.
Why The Curiosity Gap Isn’t New, and What That Has To Do With My Art School Experience
Here’s a kind of meandering stream of consciousness.
A while back I had a conversation with my good friend Jennifer Cario (author of Pinterest Marketing An Hour A Day, and President of Sugar Spun Marketing.)
We were talking about The Curiosity Gap, and how it works in art and marketing (and the art of marketing. And probably the marketing of art.)
And I made this connection.
Here’s a couple of sneak peeks at the upcoming book.
What do you think?
Great to see the awesome feedback on “Hide & Seek With Beverly”
“I really enjoyed reading this book to my little girl as she loves to play hide and seek. The pictures where the characters are trying to hide where funny, so I enjoyed the humor of the illustrations and how it teaches how to count up to ten and the game of hide and seek. Easy to read and read over and over again.”
