I have been in the new house 9 months, and am finally going through boxes in the office.
In the process I’ve discovered stacks of old work, much of it dating back to around high school. Some drawings, but mostly poetry, short stories, and somewhere in here is the most terrible sci-fi fantasy novel ever written.
I’m considering transcribing them and making them available for free just for fun.
Would anybody be interested in that? Reading the awful science fiction short stories of a 17-year-old kid?
Curious about what I do for #distancelearning clients?
I work alongside the Instructional Designer (ID), who is a specialist responsible for designing and organizing the course. They work with the Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to define the overall educational goals of the course, and develop supplemental materials like quizzes and tests, downloadable support assets like workbooks and syllabi, and interactive content.
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.”
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.
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.
