Hal was a bit obstinate uttering that famous line. Of course, it was actually Arthur C. Clark envisioning AI taking control in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The science fiction book, published in 1968, was also released as a movie that same year. In fact, today, April 3rd, marks the 51st anniversary of the film adaptation.
Like a clogged parkway toll machine that refuses to read “PAID, THANK YOU,” Hal represents a machine controlling humans – with an attitude. The former leaves you with a bunch of impatient commuters on your behind, and horns barking without remorse.
Obviously, E-ZPass® is the way to go here in the tri-state area. After all, these newer AI machines can’t get jammed with clumsy coins. In fact, it’s sort of paving the way for...
Kurt’s blog- (while Jess and Dan are on their Honeymoon!)
Sailed off to Antigua, it took her three days on a boat. Lookin’ for some peace and quiet, maybe keep her dreams afloat. Why the Jimmy Buffett reference? My co-author Jess, and Dan LaRusso are currently enjoying the amenities of the Caribbean lifestyle. Beaches, saltwater, sunshine, new friends, stingrays, sand bars, and open bars. All of these experiences manifest into great memories, and memories like this are retained in all of us at one time in our lives. Jess and Dan are now honeymooners after an awesome wedding. Perhaps an event that will foster memories upon generations yet to come, through stories and happenings that will spark life itself. Time is a relative thing. My beautiful wife and I have been married for...

Our Sci-Fi Journey: The Third Chapter
It’s been a long (albeit thoroughly enjoyable) journey. Our first novel was released on June 8, 2013, and as we write this blog, it’s August 20, 2016 – our story has been just over three y...
Are you ready for Computer Love Inc.: III Blood Brothers?! We have been reviewing the final copy and we’ve made a few last-minute tweaks. We expect to release it any day now, so stay tuned for updates!
We are so excited about our interview with Rocco this weekend. It is not often that we are interviewed by such a prominent celebrity, furry or otherwise. We want to thank national bestseller, Toni LoTempio, for the opportunity, and if you like cozy mysteries, be sure to check out her Nick and Nora series!
For the fussy readers out there (and let’s face it, we can all get a little “fussy” when it comes to choosing the next title to put on our to-read lists), you can also check us out on Fussy Librarian this weekend. We want to thank the Head Librarian for the opportunity to be fea...
We are in the final editing stages for Computer Love Inc. III and we are both so excited about the upcoming book release.

Our series will be featured on Fussy Librarian as well as Rocco’s blog next month and we have a free book giveaway on the horizon as well. Stay tuned for upcoming events, and be sure to check out our Computer Love Inc. Facebook page or twitter for quotes and giveaway contests.
How many chews could a Pickachu chew if a Pickachu could chew a Pickachu?
Gesundheit for reading that title! (Get it? Pik… achoo!)
If you’re like many of our readers (or, ahem… Jess), you may be suffering from Pokemon Go fever. If you’ve found yourself dreaming of Squirtles, Wartotles, or even a Blastoise, you know what we mean. Perhaps your Jigglypuff is now a coveted Wigglypuff. Maybe you’ve captured enough Charmander candy to evolve yours into a Charmeleon. Have you been MIA recently, walking or driving around in pursuit of the closest Poke Stop or gym?
For starters, we’d like to commend you on staying away from the game for this long and reading something other than the latest Google results for “Poke Stops near me” or “Pokemon Go Tips.” Yes, reading – remember that? The act...
