Idle Ramblingsis my regular blog-type blog where I do a lot of ranting about Star Trek, talk about science fiction movies I like, post about music I like and music I make and just regular life stuff.

Idle Ramblings actually began its life more than 25 years ago as a column I wrote in the Ole Miss newspaper The Daily Mississippian. The title followed me to my “real” jobs at the now remanded to history newspapers The Amory Advertiser and The Aberdeen Examiner. Upon my daring escape from the newspaper business, I decided to let Idle Ramblings loose into cyberspace where it has attracted tens of readers each decade of its existence.

This iteration of Idle Ramblings is much more like the college predecessor – focused more on popular culture. But unlike the rigors of the newspaper business, the publication of anything actually new is rather sporadic.
