This dude is hot.








If there is a God, I pray that he never lets me write a book like Transcendence.

And that's not a knock on the movie, it's a compliment actually.

On July 31, 2005, my wife and I adopted a dog. It was not an easy decision. We had two cats at the time, and adding a dog to the mix was certain to cause some domestic unrest.


“I’ve had dogs before,” I told my wife. “They need a lot of attention and can be a lot of trouble.”
