Lemme tell you something…

Post ten NON-POLITICAL opinions you have that are likely to be very unpopular.

They can be about food, history, science pop-culture, music, anything but politics.

I’ll Start –


These are the non-Political evidence-based opinions that I’ve been defriended for on Facebook –
1. George A. Romero had fast zombies in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. He had fast and invisible zombies in DIARY OF THE DEAD.

2. NEXUS remains the best superhero comic series ever.

3. AVATAR was not only the worst movie James Cameron ever directed, even SyFy channel has shown better work.

4. If you travel in time while held within the gravitational field of a sufficient cosmic mass / body (one with a gravitational field significantly stronger than your own body), you will remain in that field regardless of how far forward or backward you move in time. In physics, Space Time are two interlocking, but separate cogs, which work within the framework of the four forces of nature, and not the opposite. So unless your time machine is also an anti-grav machine…

5. A Matter Transmitter in THE FLY and STAR TREK sense (extraordinarily precise disassembling and reassembling of the atomic structure of living beings into the same living beings), isn’t as viably efficient a technology as transmitting matter whole from point A to point B via wormhole and String “bundling” (imaginatively launching from where we currently understand the concepts).

6. If you can upend physics by imagining that the dead can spontaneously return to life as seeing, hearing, mobile bipedal cannibals, capable of moving erect and balanced, you can imagine them being fast and lasting for years.

7. We do not have a Bee die off Crisis, since the accuracy of research/counting of Bee populations / Colonies remains reproducible only when limited to Beekeepers and not the unknown but (in all likelihood) overwhelmingly larger populations of bees in the wild (which are virtually impossible to monitor thanks to their ever-changing nomadic lifestyle – though some scientists are trying).

8. The truth is, we love FIREFLY for what it could have become. We have settled for what it is: which is really good, but not great (I don’t care what you use to terraform your planet or moon, distance from its central star will either make it earthlike inhabitable or an unendurable hell. And the Bai Hu / White Sun system? The physics are faith-based).

9. Science Fiction Horror novels are more natural to each other than Supernatural Horror novels. The first Science Fiction novel was also the first Horror novel and the Horror trope of the Mad Scientist / Doctor has endured ever since.

10. Extending the human lifespan more than 10 times its current limit is not only possible, but environmentally desirable.

pb300The San Diego Comic-Con begins with a premiere on Wednesday night and goes full throttle on Thursday, July 12!

This year I’ll be supporting my new eBook, PERPETUAL BULLET as well as Kelly Parks’ DRAWING DEAD and Jimmy Diggs’ SPOTLIGHT ON CRYPTO-HISTORY.

In support of writer and producer Kelly Parks, upcoming Horror Thriller movie, DRAWING DEAD, he and I will be in the autograph area of the Sail Pavilion at the convention center, Table AA20 .

DRAWING DEAD will star Doug Jones (PAN’S LABYRINTH, HELLBOY), Gary Graham (ALIEN NATION [TV], STAR TREK ENTERPRISE [TV], ROBOT JOX), and Chris Staviski (CHILLERAMA). It will be directed by Colin Cunningham (THE 6th DAY, STARGATE SG-1 [TV], Steven Spielberg’s FALLING SKIES [TV]).

DRAWING DEAD will also feature a score by Boris Zelkin (DEAD OF NIGHT, MIND GAMES, IF… DOG… RABBIT, UNIVERSAL DEAD), SFX Make-up by Johnnie Saiko (HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN, STARGATE, THE 6th DAY, AVPR: ALIENS VS PREDATOR: REQUIEM), and Art Direction by E.C. McMullen Jr (Yeah, dat’s right!). I also designed the marketing materials from cards to movie poster. Autographs will go from 10:00am to 2:30pm. Expect special guests and maybe even a few surprises!

Then it is PERPETUAL BULLET time!
From 1:30pm to 2:30pm, I’ll be away from the autograph area on the SELF-PUBLISHING: Exploring the E-Frontier. This will be in Room 4 of the convention center and will also feature Star Trek Deep Space Nine and Star Trek Voyager writer, Jimmy Diggs! Also onboard will be Babylon 5 and Sliders writer, Marc Zicree! The panel is moderated by writer Mark O’Bannon.

We will cover both indie writing for publishing as well as writing indie writing for movies. While on the panel, I’ll be there to support my eBook, PERPETUAL BULLET as well as Jimmy’s and my production of SPOTLIGHT ON CRYPTO-HISTORY.

For the rest of time, we will be enjoying the largest genre convention in the world!

WOO HOO! I LOVE the San Diego Comic-Con!


Jimmy Diggs and E.C. McMullen Jr.

Last night writer Jimmy Diggs (STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE, STAR TREK: VOYAGER) and I met at Lestat’s Coffee Shop to work on two of Jimmy’s creations projects, the Science Fiction time travel Steampunk Alternate History movie, HMS VICTORY and the animated SciFi COOCHIE ROGERS: Space Bounty Hunter (to be voiced by Vivica A. Fox!*). I’ll be producer on both and acting in the teaser trailer for HMS VICTORY (as Dr. Feo Amante), Spotlight On CryptoHistory!

Thrills! Adventure! Time Travel! Science! Currie! Carver! Wells! Tesla! Elvis?
