Ray Hecht was raised in America, from the Midwest to the West Coast, on a starchy diet of movies and comics and science fiction paperbacks. Mostly writing about such states as California and Ohio, and such provinces as Guangdong. Lived in Shenzhen, China since 2008, that Special Economic Zone & Hong Kong-bordering chaotic city of the future, occasionally partaking in freelance journalism for various local publications. Ray now lives in Taiwan.

Silver Screen Fiend by Patton Oswalt
"Patton Oswalt is one of my top five all-time favorite stand-up comedians. That said, most of this book isn’t funny, so don’t expect this to be a few hours of belly laughs. However, all the things Patton is passionate about I am also passionate about." Read more of this review »

"Patton Oswalt was born in January of 1969. Later that summer, on July 20, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first two humans to walk around on the surface of the moon – in what some pundits have declared was the high water mark for western ci" Read more of this review »
Ray and 7 other people liked Vishakha Tiwari's review of The Prophet:
The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
"What a Genius!

Something so profound, yet so easy to read! So much has been said, subtly, yet powerfully.

I am an ardent skeptic and I did not have much to argue. It's a book of everything and nothing.

Such a breath of fresh air!" Read more of this review »

Patton Oswalt is a national treasure!

Nothing like a heartfelt comedian's audiobook, narrated by the comedian himself, which isn't so much laugh out loud funny (although it is sometimes. My favorite is The Day the Clown Cried story) as much as a pers

A classic Batman tale, which of course inspired the excellent Nolan films covering the early years of the character. Artist Tim Sale is a great storyteller with a unique style (although he does draw Batman - and Catwoman - too buff for my tastes).

Noam Chomsky
“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum....”
Noam Chomsky, The Common Good

Jean-Paul Sartre
“Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.”
Jean-Paul Sartre
