Recently Mike Clelland (author of The Messengers, which you should pick up as soon as you're done with this) and the good fellows at the Sync Book Press reported on the second episode of season 10 of The X-Files, "Founder's Mutation", written and directed by TenThirteen founding father James Wong.

As I wrote in the previous post, 2015 had some hard lessons for me.

The New Age Unleashed: Resistance is Futile

A link popped up recently in my Facebook feed, titled "Ten Facebook Pages You Need to Stop Sharing From." It was a link to a blog called "Dawn's Brain," the author of which seems to be an art teacher who decided to expand her resume into teaching biology (probably in reaction to arts programs being increasingly targeted by budget-minded administrators).
