REPO MEN (2010)
Many viewers will call the plot of Repo Men just plain silly and many critics already have. Indeed the idea of a corporation reclaiming life-saving organ transplants from its constituencies who cannot …

Embryo
Embryo may have unintentionally landed in the science-fiction genre. Or perhaps it was going for a less fantastical angle, choosing instead to be tempered in its speculations about where medical technology …

I've noticed that on amazon it is my animé and comic-book based film reviews that are the least well received by voters. That comes as no surprise, animé and comics are sacred cows that …

Movie: Fantastic Mr. Fox
It's always a good sign when you're an adult in a movie marketed for kids and you find yourself laughing louder than the restless children in the audience. Albeit, it's a tad embarrassing too, but a good …

Just pop by to say hi! Long time no see!!!
April 01, 2011
Thanks for checking in Sharrie! I'm doing well (still working on the book as you might have guessed). Hoping to finish in time for a sci-fi exhibition in the UK. How goes things with you and your adventures around the world?
April 01, 2011
That's great news! Best of luck! Me still in the process of moving, may be to Macau soon! Not so much traveling other than to nearby places. Was in Bangkok, Singapore, Shanghai and Macau recently. However, if you're sponsoring, that could be arranged, LOL!
 
April 09, 2010
LOL! I never noticed that your profile was a dual-color, high-contrast silhouette of someone snorting coke. How'd you get away with that?! =D
April 09, 2010
Doh! Don't say that so loud! LOL. Nah, actually it's lines of *code*... not coke. Hard to tell with the teensy icon. But on the website at the footer it's easier to recognize.
April 09, 2010
Oh, my bad!
 
September 13, 2009
Just one more question, hehe... is your first name Michael or Jeffrey? ;-) It could be, but thought I'll ask anyway!
September 13, 2009
Oooooh....how I wish my first name were Michael. Then I'd definitely be driving that Lexus.
September 13, 2009
I'm convinced you'll be driving one but not being driven in one though ;-) Well, wish you luck, may be you'll get it this Christmas!
September 13, 2009
Is this your official psychic prediction, or just a friendly hope for the best? Who knows, if the book I'm writing does well, maybe I'll have that Lexus after all.
September 13, 2009
Ask and you shall be given. Have faith, my friend! From what I can see, you will get that Lexus! I've great feel :-)
September 13, 2009
It's actually a graphic novel. The title is CLONE. I wrote the story and my buddy is doing the illustrations. Here is my synopsis (in progress). Writing a brief for a 300 page book is daunting: CLONE Summary "There slumbers a song in all things Dreaming on and on…" As British philosopher AJ Ayer compared the search for "self" to Chinese boxes, with each box opened we dive deeper into the human body until finally reaching the elusive condition of the human being and the enigma of being human. In the year 2000 when the genome was sequenced, science unlocked the box of the human body. In the year 2062, the box has been opened. It is a time when humanity will be confronted by its own scientific ambivalence towards life. Either by accident or fate, cognitive psychologist Allan Shapiro stumbles upon an inimitable young boy with disabilities. This boy retains only semantic short-term memory. He doesn't remember names, except his own. He calls himself "TJ2." TJ is a clone, but a clone of whom? When the public learns of TJ's existence it sparks a rude awakening to the impotence of government legislation against impatient and emerging technology. A story about the anxiety and angst of the future, CLONE observes how a single boy can shift the self-schemata of society. This is the tale of those who dare to delve, prying at the last box – the box of the human being – and the unforeseen outcomes that consume them.
September 13, 2009
Cool! You're on the same wavelength as Steven Spielberg's A.I. Did you watch the movie Artificial Intelligence? I love it and this synopsis you just wrote reminds me of that! May be it's a case of pandora box! I'm currently very much interested in nano technology. Wondering what that'd do to our lifestyle in the coming decade!
September 13, 2009
Incidentally, the new species of architecture as explained on this video talks about integrating nano tech into architecture.
September 13, 2009
Yeah, I saw it at the theaters, but haven't seen it in quite awhile. I've been wondering about the nano-technological future and where things are going with this tinkering with the human genome. It's difficult to know how to feel about all this stuff. I go back and forth. Kind of interesting that you mentioned A.I. the logo for CLONE was compared to A.I. by a friend of mine. Maybe Spielberg will pick up the story and make it into a movie. Then I'll have two Lexus'! Maybe even three! Heh, heh...
September 13, 2009
Well, if you do get 3, I won't mind having ours replaced by a new model Do have one send to Toronto! :-) Deal? IF you get 3 this christmas, that is!
September 13, 2009
It's a deal! ;-)
December 05, 2010
How's my deal working out to be, my friend? Christmas is approaching! Have you caught sight of that Lexus yet? ;-)
December 05, 2010
No, not yet. Actually. I just had a setback. All the big money I had for that Lexus had to pay for something else. I wrote about it if you want to read the terrible tale: http://hubpages.com/hub/The-4-000-Testicle
December 05, 2010
Hahahahahahaha!!! You've had me visualizing you walking around naked after that piece of action! Good thing I've never seen you in pictures or person! That would be quite a horror, I think! $4000? Ouch! On both counts ;-)
December 05, 2010
Horror! You mean honor! I'm nothing short of a stud ;-) Yeah, "ouch" is right. When they slapped me with the $4K bill I felt like they fixed my nuts just so that they could kick me in them.
December 05, 2010
As u mentioned in your article, it's in the biology of men to take interest in the geometry of women. I don't think it's true in the reverse, lol... unless you go to gym quite a bit! Hmm, u know what? Let me be the judge of that! How about email me a photo & I'll let you know personally how you fare in that regard ;p
December 05, 2010
Actually, if it's in proper working order, I'd say $4000 is well worth it ;-) Get your girlfriend to foot the bill, she's afterall the main beneficiary!
December 05, 2010
She's going to want to kill you for planting that idea in my head.
December 05, 2010
No, she's not! You sure she wasn't the culprit that got you into that state to begin with? LOL...
December 05, 2010
LOL! You, Sharrie, are the master conspirator.
December 05, 2010
I'll make a good advisor, don't you think ;-)
December 06, 2010
You want me to divulge my secret identity??? LOL. Just know, I have a super heroes physique. That means a $4,000 you-know-what and a $40,000 body!
December 06, 2010
Ha, just a $40k body? I'd have thought it a $40k ego and a $4m body! That's more like it!
December 06, 2010
The ego is $400K... okay, okay... minus $4,000. Surgery takes its toll, ya know ;-)

I'm curious... is Jordan a first name, last name or simply name of the country I visited this January? Interesting profile pix you've here. I took a peep at the website. Cool!!!
September 13, 2009
Last name. What was going on in Jordan that took you there?
September 13, 2009
The Quest!!! Since Raiders of the Lost Ark :-) I was there while Israel was bombing Gaza too! What an adventure!
September 13, 2009
I have effectively turned green with envy...in fact, only a few shades away from the green on the lunch website :-) That's awesome that you get around like that. I am still getting over my fear of being in the air. I've asked my genes to give me wings but either they won't do it or they're taking their sweet time in granting my request.
September 13, 2009
I guess driving across America in a new Lexus would be just as cool! ;-) I live to fly and if I've had my way, I'd have learned how to fly a jet! Still hoping to one day, either over Alaska or the Grand Canyon :-) Keeping my fingers crossed too! Well, I did get to Antarctica, which was more or less a dream I never actually dreamed about. So, what can I say? :-)

What is your book on?
