I received a rather thoughtful comment on my blog regarding L'homme Theroux that I would like to share:

MJennings:  I’m curious…Are you going to actually shop it or self-publish it? You’re a strong writer, and the fact you’re putting yourself through the actual PROCESS of writing, including taking the smack of betas (I’m doing that now and masochistically craving every minute of it), is indicative of consummate professionalism. Should you self-publish, I seriously doubt there’d be anything “crappy” about what you present. However, I think you should seriously give the pitching/shopping a shot, too, even if these days, the odds are only in favor of the Kings and Pattersons.

Response:  Thank you for the compliment.  I'm glad the effort I've put into this project is evident.
The big reason I stopped writing a decade ago was precisely because of the traditional method of publishing.  I'm entirely too impatient for the long waits and the economics of publishing itself.  Publishers have to make decisions based on marketability.  That is why the Kings and the Pattersons of the writing world dominate.
Even if I were to publish traditionally, I expect none to zero support in the marketing effort from the publisher.  Quite honestly, the only benefit I see to going the traditional route is placement on the shelves of a brick and mortar store for a few weeks before losing that spot to another book that will move more units and push mine into oblivion.
Even with the thousands of books stocked at my local Barnes and Noble, the answer I hear over and over when searching for a particular book is to visit their website.  If that is the common answer, that has the effect of frustrating my reader by the wasted trip and diverting them to impulse buys of books, gift cards, merchandise, and lattes of which I receive no benefit.  I don't begrudge them buying other books, but I certainly don't want to miss the opportunity I had.
My view on bookstores is they have shifted their business models to coffee shops that use the books they stock as a hook to keep customers purchasing more edibles instead of buying books.
But mostly, I like the freedom.  Production goes at the pace I set, I select my price point, and the publication rights remain with me without exclusivity clauses publishers frequently require.  I can live with a Faustian bargain, but price would be astronomical since I would assume the entire work would forever be out of my hands.  Not to mention the possibility of being prohibited from publishing under my name due to anti-competition clauses.
I'm not saying I would not do it, but a publisher would have to walk in with a suitcase full of cash.

L’homme Theroux just went through the first round of edits.  Now, it is off to the Beta readers.  I can only use the plural in the most technical of senses because there are only two.  Of course, m...

Call For Papers:

Marvel Feature Films edited by Robert Moses Peaslee, Matt McEniry, and Robert G. Weiner

 

The recent release of Guardians of the Galaxy marks the penultimate film in the so-called second “phase” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a group of big-budget tentpole films that include Marvel’s The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Solider, Thor: Dark World, Iron Man 1-3, and the Incredible Hulk. Meanwhile, other studios like Sony and Fox have had success with films based on Marvel properties such as the X-Men and Spider-Man.

Feature films and full-length television movies based on Marvel characters go back to the 1970s, however, and very little scholarship has been produced on these films. The editors of this volume seek essays that discuss Marvel feature length films, and while we will consider essays that deal with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and more recent films, we are particularly interested in those films that have not received a lot of scholarly attention (including television and animated features).  We are also interested in work dealing with films produced when certain characters were Marvel properties (like Transformers, G. I. Joe, and Conan). Please note we are not interested in television series, per se, but rather the full-length films produced from them. We are also interested in the business aspect of Marvel Films and Marvel Animation.  We will also consider essays on those unauthorized foreign films based on Marvel characters like Turkish Captain America/Spider-Man, etc.

We are particularly interested in considering essays dealing with:

Transfomers (1986), G.I. Joe (1987), Howard the Duck (1986), Captain America  (1979, 1990), Inhumanoids: the Movie (1986),  Trial of the Incredible Hulk (1989), Man-Thing (2005), Ghost Rider (2007, 2011), Spider-Man: The Dragon’s Challenge (1979), Dr. Strange (1979), Generation X (1996), Power Pack (1991), Punisher (1989), Nick Fury: Agent of Shield (1998), Blade 1-3 (1998, 2002, 2004), Elektra (2005), Thor: Tales of Asgard (2011), Iron Man: Rise of Technovore (2013), Planet Hulk (2010), Fantastic Four (1994) and Next Avengers (2008).

A brief but by no means conclusive list of interesting questions to consider:

    How has Disney’s acquisition of Marvel changed the blockbuster landscape?
    Why were certain television or direct to video films like Captain America (1990), Captain America: Death Too Soon or Spider-Man: The Dragon’s Challenge released theatrically overseas?
    Why did Howard the Duck fail to live up to its hype, and what are we to make of his recent reappearance in the CMU?
    How can we think more deeply about the use of legend and myth in these films?
    What was the production history of Transformers (1986) and how did the film eventually factor into the continuity of the Marvel comics series?
    Cyberpunk influences, particularly in films like Iron Man: Rise of Technovore
    Faustian influences in the Ghost Rider films and the use of the original Ghost Rider, Carter Slade, in the first film.
    How Daredevil and Thor were used in the Hulk television films?
    While Blade was moderately successfully in 1998, why did it take the 2000’s X-Men to kick start the current wave of Marvel and superhero films?
    Generation X as an example of X-film?
    Has Marvel Animation been successful compared to DC in producing high quality animated films?
    Planet Hulk as Greek/Roman myth?
    Traditional vampire lore in the Blade series.
    Spider-Man as a villain in the Turkish 3 Dev Adam, also featuring Captain America.
    The Bollywood 'Tu Mera Superman featuring a mash-up of Superman and Spider-Woman?
    Production history of producer Roger Corman’s ill-fated attempt at the $2 million Fantastic Four film.

Please submit a 200-500 word abstract by November 15th Rob.weiner@ttu.edu  and  Matthew.mceniry@ttu.edu

Upon acceptance final essays will be due on Feb 15th

Nobel Prize Claim for The Well of Life.
The Well of Life can to have a big rolle for humans and for life down here on the Earth.
 Boys this application need Nobel prize if proof the validity, and I am sure will do, not for me but for itself to can stand-up against our Faustian spirit and under Science (I don't know what to say).
(Only The Flux Inversor what I named maybe improper there double way fan have a merit for Nobel Attention to put Humans in the front before artificial)
 I hope you can appreciate those applications down here what can help us everywhere inclusively into Astrophysics because for sure is for nothing if we see we have around 10 or 62 dimensions if we can't to see which one present symmetry or asymmetry, omogenity or not linearity or not etc:
 The Well of Life. - The Biggest Discovery of all the Times?
 The well of life will be the biggest discovery of all the times and without to know I was working on it begin with 1973.
 I was near to lost it 1995 when I make first deposit and for a time this event make me near of crazy, but here into America in a day my son ask me about my crazy idea for a Absolute Rotary Engine and my answer was somebody is making it, but then I started to luck around and I see nobody understood it and because of a lot of new hopes for a magnetic engine, ionic engine and ..., my work was saved by "Universe".
 I hope magnetic engine to be a success- but not forgot magnet mean a little bit magma net- etc. for it I will say to you if my engine will proof is validity will be the biggest Discovery of all the times.
 To see for what:
 but first to explain "The Well of Life" is contained into two applications at USPTO- what I hope is fighting to keep Absolute priority for it-
 1. M Thermodynamic resonant engine with a rotary variant
 2. Shock wave converter for a M Thermodynamic resonant engine, for a Electromagnetic vibrator engine and for dissipate shock wave sources -what I hope USPTO will publish soon to be a priority -
 Now for what The Well of Life will be the biggest Discovery of all the time if proof it's validity?
 - only a component of it double way fan or flux inversor can to bring a lot of safety into lunch and landing and also a lot of safety for a jet engine
 - it's symmetry of components can make the record onto biggest RPM and we will need it
 -it's revelation Shock wave converter can to be maybe the best sources of clean energy
 -it's revelation Shock wave converter make possible a Electromagnetic vibrator engine what with high technology can go to unimaginable RPM's
 -it's revelation Shock wave converter make possible a Electromagnetic vibrator engine what can be the best cars electric engine with a very simple and elastic transmission.
 If This two applications proof the validity can to be also a big helper for our climatic.
 and a lot more.
 About Shock wave converter you can see everything into a form what I send to USPTO at www.climaticdisorder.com
 - then offer to me the possibility to Claim for it a Nobel Prize for a mechanical Discovery - The Well of Life

Today's ISIS execution of aid worker David Haines has provoked many in the west to ask: "what do they think they are accomplishing by this?"  Sure, a few more families may strive to get around government restrictions and pay ransom, but that is chicken feed.  ISIS states clearly the intent is to intimidate the west and its regional allies into backing away.  To which one asks: "what species do you think we are?"  Provoked by this, I recalled the essay I posted during the weeks after the original 9/11 attacks....

... which I will repost in their entirety, soon.  But below is a core passage that I think we need to ponder carefully, about the deep and underlying reason for this clash of cultures:

WHY DID IT HAPPEN?
 At the psychological level:

People tend to dismiss the psychology behind terror events like 9/11 under pablums like “religious fanaticism.”
    While such terms may be true, they are unenlightening.  For one thing, anyone who has experienced combat will tell you that martyrs don’t happen because a guy wants to “be” a hero or martyr.  When a man martyrs himself extravagantly, it’s often because he desperately wants people - the world - to SEE him as one.  There’s a crucial difference.

At another level, how can people rationalize killing?  They begin by demonizing their enemies.  And yes, we’ve done it too, with caricatures of Japanese during WWII, for instance.  In the case of the Nazis, “demon” turned out to be exactly the right word.

The rhetoric used to demonize Americans often portrays us as a “soft and decadent” people who can easily be frightened and coerced.  That all our successes and power and things like “fun” had to come from having traded away something else, more valuable. Enemies such as Hitler and Stalin and Saddam repeated this reassuring mantra over and over -- indeed the southern confederates said it about Northerners, throughout the Civil War -- even though it has been disproved repeatedly, and indeed it will have to be be disproved every decade across the Twenty-first Century.

We must understand the underlying reason why adversaries strive so hard to convince themselves of this. Because otherwise they would have to accept that our incredible success as a civilization arose from virtues.  (e.g. ingenuity, hard-work, education, freedom, cooperation, initiative, liberation of women and a better design for a happy society.)  Positive Sum society that can create new virtues while retaining the old, expand horizons without forgetting our roots, both have our cake and eat it, while sharing it with others and watching it grow  at the same time.

Naturally, this is intolerable for zero (or negative) sum thinking to contemplate.  (And let’s be honest; zero-sum was normal, in 99% of human cultures.  We are the exception, and possibly crazy!)  When faced with our obvious wealth and success, zero-summers must rationalize that it came about as a result of a tradeoff -- a Faustian bargain -- that we bought sybarite comforts at cost of our strength, our ‘manhood’, our grit, or our very souls.  
    (Many of our own pundits collaborate with this image by characterizing their fellow citizens in similar ways.)

And in all cases, you’ll find a flip side. These delusional adversaries tell themselves that they are hardy, spiritually-deep beings, destined to overcome brittle degenerates. This tendency will never go away.  It feels too good for our adversaries ever to give it up. All we can do is prove it wrong again and again, as our fathers and grandfathers did.

Hot tip: the cheapest data plan for cellular data on a tablet is going to be the famous Walmart/TMobile $30 per month plan that includes an unthrottled 5gb of data per month, with 100 minutes of voice calling and unlimited texts thrown in. You can't use the Wal-Mobile sim in a regular cellular enabled tablet - it won't work. TMob is apparently afraid you might actually use 5gb if it's connected to a tablet (which is why they block sharing your 5g via hot-spotting). But nothing says you can't make a phone that's as big as a small tablet, and of course that's what Apple has done with the iPhone 6 Plus at 5.5".

Take that, Faustian contract writers at TMobile. We WILL find a way to enjoy our 5gb!

PS - 5gb high speed, unlimited but slower after that.

Faustian Vignette

Oh, guardian angel! Why do you stand by
while I sign this repugnant pact?
Oh, evil covenant! Is it a fact 
that I am less than human,
a wretch craving for lust and liquor!
Oh, the torment for my immortal soul! 

Now I am bound to the horrors 
that I inflict upon my hapless soul.
Oh, to have treasured the riches of existence!
Not to fall for the fraud of the felon!
The trickster bade me believe  
this vile life of ignorance
more precious than love.
Oh woe!
I am his champion of denial.

If I were to see the rotten fruit,
the corruption within, the greed.
What need to forsake my soul?
For this, the only wisdom my angel shows:
an epiphany -
too late for this life.
Oh, that I should return as a lowly writhing worm
And be hewn in half by a hoe!
Than endure the eternal fires of hell!

As Libraries Go Digital, Sharing of Data Conflicts With Tradition of Privacy
Patrons' privacy is precious to most librarians. Yet new Web services thrive on collecting and sharing the very information that has long been protected.
