I post my favorite links and YouTube videos on my MicroBlog.
Floreina is a cybernetically enhanced young woman with a vibrant future in the Amarrian Empire, a decorated turret commander and slave overseer aboard an Abaddon warship, but after a cruel “accident” and the repeated abuse of slaves, Floreina risks everything in a defiant act of mutiny.
Along the way she learns that commandeering a battleship takes more than just artificially focused cunning, automated adrenaline injections, and simple, old-fashioned brutality. For her plan to succeed, Floreina must befriend a Minmatar slave.
But plans don’t always go as planned… And as the two fight for their lives, Floreina must find a way to reconcile their friendship with the racism that drives her career.
These are true stories that have actually happened to me. I did my best to be as accurate as possible but… well… you know how it is with memory.
My favorite so far is Stockholm Syndrome, about the time shortly before I became an anarchist when I was arrested and my whole perspective on law enforcement was turned upside down.
For my atheism related true stories, one is Alekson, about an old friend who pulled a knife on someone because he thought she was casting magic spells on him, or The Jesus Leap about a friend who jumped off a bridge for Jesus, or Middle Finger Justice about a guy I knew who went on a killing spree in the name of God. I wish I was making this stuff up.
Many of the other short true stories listed in the sidebar to the right have special meanings and illuminate important issues in our society. Others are just silly, such as The Dog Trap or Attack of the Crows.
I currently work as a professional Flash ActionScript developer (My hideous, outdated Flash portfolio website is at KalinFlash.com), however, my hobby and possibe new career is in WordPress. I have developed three WordPress plugins now available for free download from WordPress.org for use by other WordPress bloggers.
Post List – Creates a shortcode or PHP snippet for inserting dynamic, highly customizable lists of posts or pages such as related posts or table of contents into your post content or theme. (I’m using this right here on this page.)
Easy Edit Links – Adds a box to your page/post edit screen with links and edit buttons for all pages, posts, tags, categories, and links for convenient linking.
And of course, PDF Creation Station – Build highly customizable PDF documents from any combination of pages and posts, or add a link to any page to download a PDF of that post.
After experimenting with Christianity around the turn of the century and receiving numerous and increasingly disturbing messages from God, I finally rejected the whole concept. Now I am a devoted Atheist because I don’t want anyone else to be put in that kind of danger. Read more on my Atheism page.
22 Ways Religion Promotes Crime – One of the most important articles I’ve ever written. Simple and to the point.
Science Versus Faith – A few examples of how both science and faith are used in the real world.
Anarchism is a very complex topic and difficult to explain in less than a couple pages. Basically I believe the world would be a better place without government and law-enforcement. I believe police-brutality and corruption are significantly more common than most people will admit. I have personally witnessed such brutality. A police officer once told me there is no such thing as a cop who cares about right and wrong. Another officer once told me that the greatest joy in life is the thrill of beating someone until they beg for their life. I am an anarchist because I do not support that.
I am a communist-anarchist, meaning I believe that financial systems detract from our ability to be good, productive people. In this sense, I am a hypocrite, as I am addicted to money, and my success drives me to support an anarchist vision of socialism.

These are some of the short stories I wrote back in High-School from 1996-1999 for creative writing class. Stories of New Beginnings is my collection of Science Fiction, starting with my first story, Austin Station, a long, multiple perspective about a futuristic society and life aboard a space station. Memory is one of my favorites, a romance between an old man and a computer-generated memory. Or Two Peoples is a tale about two species trying desperately to communicate as they race a deadly missile.
I sold marijuana for ten years. I finally quit after moving to Seattle for my programming career. However, I continue to smoke regularly and still see myself as a drug dealer in a spiritual sense.
My previous website was titled Get To Know a Marijuana Dealer, at isellpot.ws. On this site I basically announced my drug-dealer status and mocked the police for their inability to bust me. That site kind of defined who I was for about eight years, but it was eventually stolen by an automated spam-bot when I forgot to renew my domain name. I will post some of the pages from that old site, but most of it no longer meets my personal standard of quality.
