I think I may have just solved all the problems with the Universe.
For some time now I have been working on a theory that will tie the shape of the Universe to gravity, spacetime, speed of light, speed of the Universe, missing mass, and more. I have yet to write it, but intend to start soon and I have to speak to an artist to commission some art work for my concepts. So check back to see what I come up with.
I think I may have just solved all the problems with the Universe.
Well, it has been about 3 months since production started on the audio versions of "Still With Eyes Closed", "The Boy in The Wood" and "David's mark".
So how is it going? CRASH!
Kelly Wilmoth finished reading "Still With Eyes Closed" and the files were uploaded to ACX, however 3 times ACX has rejected them, for "loudness". However Mr. Wilmoth IS using the ACX tools to record, edit and adjust, the exact same tools they test with he is using and when he finishes the tools tell him they are within ACX limits. So this brings up a great many questions. If Mr. Wilmoth is using the very tool that ACX test with and the tool approves the recording why is the rep within ACX failing it? It almost appears to be a personal reason. Mr. Wilmoth has currently moved forward with the recording of "The Boy in The Wood".
Now as to "David's mark" well a stage actor in New York has been working on that but I have failed to hear from him. I have sent him 2 messages via ACX, he has failed to reply. Doing audio is stressful.
So I have had time to absorb Disney's Star Wars version 9 and then took a shower and got what I could off. Disney's vision of Star Wars was nothing more than a joke. And not a funny one. In a way it seemed to me that Disney did to Star Wars what Rick Berman did to Star Trek, destroyed it.
So JJ Abrams came in and saved Star Trek with 09 the first movie, but alas he failed iwth Star Wars, because Disney had gutted it.
So is there a save for Star Wars?
Yes, but it requires time travel, in a manner of speaking.
To the year 1991, just prior to that year a man named Zahn worked with Lucas Films and George to produce three novels, which by all rights was episode 7, 8 & 9. However when Disney bought Lucas Arts they scrapped the 3 books and trashed the last 3 movies. The 3 Zahn books are still considered the final work on Star Wars by the fans of the 1970's - 1980's without any doubts, and they actually follow the story picking up 5 years where Return left off.
Much has been written on Zahn and I could not post anything here to add to it, but here are some interesting links

Like most we have a #Roku in our home and like most it is personalized. I have a Star Trek theme and screensaver set up.
However on the morning of November 29th I got up and my theme was changed to a halloween theme.
Now some facts.
In America halloween is not a nationally recognized holiday, it is also not a Christian holiday but is widely known as a demonic holiday or Satan's day.
Another fact only about 70% of American's say they will do something to celebrate halloween but less then 70% state that it will be part of the custom.
So that leaves over 30% of American's that will have no part in halloween, yet Roku Service changed my personal theme to a theme honoring Satan.
Now you might say Google does it on their homepage, Google in on the Internet not on a device in my home, that I have control over.
Or you might say, it's easy to change back, however I should never have been forced to change it back.
Roke in a word #Hacked my system and changed it to reflect their personal religious viewpoint. They forced their view of a known holiday that celebrates Satan on me an my family and they had no right to do so.
If Roku does it for halloween then they MUST do it for every holiday and every event known in the world. If they pick and choose they are pushng their personal religious beliefs off on others.
In short it bothered me, and in fact worried me that a large company has the ability to #Hack my system and use it to promote their religion. That is a violation on so many grounds. I hope Roku reconsiders it for the rest of the holiday's this year. Let people set up their own holiday theme don't for it off on others.
On November 19th I married my very best friend and this years marks 33 years we have been together and like a good wine we get better with time. (not age because we will be married forever.)
This year the gift she thought of and bought has very special meaning.
At about the age 12 I took a deep interest in physics and astronomy and started asking my dad for a telescope, either for Xmas or my birthday, year after year he did not get it. Then when I turned 16 he bought one, a toy kid scope, he thought it was a good fit for me.
Once married and early in our marriage I mentioned a telescope now and then and I never realized my wife was really paying attention, to the type and model.
This year she handed me her phone and on it was a telescope and she asked if it was the right one. My eyes filled with tears, I had not mentioned a telescope in 10 years. It arrived yesterday and I spent the better part of 2 hours assembling it, I have to read the instructions sometimes 2 times to ensure I do it right. Today I balanced it.
I do not understand how it is portable, it weights at least 75lbs. It's an Orion SpaceProbe 130ST, I plan to use my Canon camera to take some photos and videos.
It is overcast right now so nothing planned.
I have the best wife in the universe, and she forever has my heart.
I have entered into a contractual agreement with renowned stage actor Shawn Patrick Murphy to narrate "David's mark".
It is currently in production to be released soon.
Check back here for updates and be the first to hear the remarkable reading of "David's mark".
