PZ Myers

"Refugee"? Has there been a coup?

Matt Weiner

PZ Myers, not a regular Crooked Timber reader.

PZ Myers

No, I am, but I always get to it through my RSS reader...and since, as I've just discovered, they done gone blowed it all up over there, their RSS file wasn't getting updated, so I wasn't seeing any news.

It's tragic to imagine dispossessed bloggers, wandering the world, begging for teeny-tiny crumbs of database space from their more fortunate colleagues. If any want to find temporary shelter on my server, I'd be happy to help...although I know a place in frigid Minnesota simply doesn't compare to exotic and savory Indonesia.

Matt Weiner

Ah. Matt Weiner, a complete technological idiot. Carry on, then (and I've probably got some server space to spare if you promise not to draw too many hits).


Current territorial disputes notwithstanding, I don't think you can really say Singapore is in Indonesia, PZ.


This is a better looking blog, anyway. CT should just crash at your place.

Dell Adams

djw, a terrible punster.

PZ Myers

I'm American. I'm lucky not to have suggested J&B lived somewhere near Iceland.

Gary Farber

All very well about this "Farrell" chap, whomever he may be, but I'm focused on the artist; the piece looks kinda familiar, but I'm definitely not placing it. It looks alightly Powers-ish, but maybe not. Tell?


Gary, it's A.E Van Vogt, the Weapon Makers.

  • Confused by our comment policy?

    We're testing a strong CC license as a form of troll repellant. Does that sound strange? Read this thread. (I know, it's long. Keep scrolling. Further. Further. Ah, there.) So basically, we figure trolls will recognize that selling coffee cups and t-shirts is the best revenge, and will keep away. If we're wrong about that, at least someone can still sell the cups and shirts. (Sigh.)
