Via tarpo The Most Significant SF & Fantasy Books of the Last 50 Years, 1953-2002 (according to Sci Fi Book Club)

I've put a 0 to 4 Star rating beside the ones I've read, according to the amount of enjoyment I got from them. One star is worth an eyeball, anything with 2 stars is good, 3 very good, and four is "What? You haven't read it? Hop to it!" I imagine many folks will disagree with me on a few of my feelings, so I'm going to stress that it's simply my opinion.

Your Mileage may vary... as might mine in current time. (I've not read some of them in over two decades.)

And to play the meme card, and complete the SF dork entry, (in all honesty, I was borderline 10/11 on all the answers. I suspect more questions might be needed to get a better reading)

Discovered this morning that I do a really good rendition of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" when singing in the shower.

Speaking of love, here’s some doodles drawn thinking about my sweetheart:

Only a week or two behind on this one...

Prof. Dave Farber sent an e-mail to his Interesting People list about how under Code Orange it is, apparently, illegal to take photos of transit facilities. At a faculty meeting at Bryn Mawr College, the attendees were informed that a student from Haverford College was arrested for taking photographs of trains in Philadelphia. The student was detained and questioned for a few hours and eventually released.

This struck a chord with me, as I like taking little travel pictures, many of which might take place in a bus, or at the station. I'm especially prone to take shots with my palmtop "spycam", though the pictures from that are weak, at best.

Fortunately, Farber also posted an item from a Portland, Ore. attorney who has posted a briefing paper about what your rights are as a photographer.
