Picks of the Week

Well, it was bound to happen. I whiffed on a couple of picks last week: I really thought Georgia was gonna beat South Carolina, and there was no way of knowing Florida State was gonna look so bad against Oklahoma. But, with my 100% from last week, this puts me at a sort of surprisingly good 90% (18 of 20). This week we have a lot less big games, but there are a few of interest.

No. 12 Arkansas at Georgia
This game is sort of do or die for the Bulldogs. After a crushing defeat in Columbia to the Gamecocks, Mark Richt needs to basically win the rest of his SEC games in order to have any hope of winning the SEC East. Unfortunately for him his two non-East opponents are Auburn and Arkansas, two teams who are in the front running for upsetsville against 'Bama. Considering Georgia's defense looked like poo against South Carolina and they are facing Ryan Mallett and his amazing cannon arm this week, I think the Dawgs have their work cut out for them. I hate to say it, but I think Mallett has an air of inevitability about him. I give this one to the Hogs.

Great interview with Kim Stanley Robinson

Gerry Canavan has a heck of an interview with Kim Stanley Robinson, the Science Fiction master, about science, Sci-Fi, and politics. It is an interview from the Canavan-edited Polygraph #22, which can now be purchased on Amazon. I, for one, know one way I'm spending $10 this week.

You can read the interview here at Canavan's blog.

You like me, you really like me...

The fine people at -Zine Scene have done a review of the latest two issues of decomP and one of the short stories they chose to write about was my very own ditty "The Devil's Courtyard" from the September, 2010 issue. While the write up is brief, I am proud and honored to have any attention called to my fictionalizing exploits. So, hats off to -Zine Scene and thank you very much for the fine work you're doing in calling attention to all the crazy talent bubbling up in the underground internet publishing scene.

Sing This Song

I guess I'll give y'all a break this week with the music and totally shift gears. The last few weeks I introduced you to my old hard rock buddies, Oblivion, but now it's time to sink into the low, soft lullaby of the first official Tres Crow song recorded by the duo Noble Three.

By now you may be familiar with the progression (Greenland sky-rocketed to "international fame" with our adorable little video for "The Way It Is" only to crash land when we realized that YouTube may be a household name, but they don't yet have to clout to launch musical careers. Out of the ruins of Greenland came the short-lived, but no less prolific, Noble Three), so I'll just tell you about the song.
