My dramatic reading of Legend of the Wolf-Cat

Greg Stevens reads Legend of the Wolf Cat
For this installment of my science fiction reading project, I wanted to share with everyone a chapter out of one of my favorite "fantasy-like" science fiction novels: The Celestial Steam Locomotive Volume I of The Song of Earth. I found this novel quite randomly when I was 15. I was wandering around the school library in the science fiction section, and the cover and title of the book caught my eye. So, I picked it up and started reading. This chapter stands on its own as a fable that teaches a lesson about jealousy, explains continental drift, and explains the name of a particular animal....

Why are women so _________________?

Why are women so....?
From despondent hand-wringing teen boys in their basements to angry unshaven men drinking their lives away a the corner bar, you can hear the eternal refrain, "Why are women so.......?" It is reflected on the internet, as well, with the lonely and the heartbroken howling the question into the void: Why are women so mean? Why are women so needy? Why are women so dishonest? Why are women so immature? Why are women so confusing? Why are women so difficult to figure out? Well, I hate to tell you this: but you are all asking the wrong question.

College bodybuilder tips: video chat with Koby

Greg Stevens talks to Koby Sterling about bodybuilding, weightlifting, diet and exercise.
My newest “Unscripted Chit-Chat” video is up on my Youtube Channel. If you follow this blog you’ve seen that in the Fitness Section I had an entire series of articles called “College Bodybuilder Tips” that were in the format of letters to a mysterious “K”, who I was giving diet and workout advice to. Well, in this video I talk to “K”–his name is Koby–and we chat about some of the advice I’ve given him over the years and about his success in going from 135 to 180 of lean muscle.

When is it offensive to use the word “faggot”?

Greg Stevens and Josiah Jennings chat about the meanings of offensive words
The reason I haven't been writing as much as I ought for this blog lately is that my time has been taken up by making weekly videos for my Youtube Channel. This is something that I had been wanting to do for a while, but never had the time because of other side projects like Liberal Bias. But now, I have the time. One of the series that I'm planning for my Youtube channel is a series of videos called "Unscripted Chit-Chat", which will me chatting with people on various topics. I just published the first one, in which my friend Josiah Jennings and I discuss the word "faggot."

My dramatic reading of The Waveries by Fredric Brown

The Waveries
The latest installment of my science fiction reading project is up on Youtube Channel! It's a very cool classic short story from 1945, and it really shows off how ingenious and inventive some of the sci fi authors from that time period were. I also put a lot of production work into this one: sound effects, special effects, and even a little voice acting for different parts. Check it out and let me know what you think!

My dramatic reading of Trurl’s Machine, by Stanislaw Lem

Greg Stevens does a dramatic reading of "Trurl's Machine" by Stanislaw Lem
I've started a new project on my Youtube Channel: I'm going to start doing little dramatic readings of some of my favorite old, classic short science fiction stories. The first one I decided to do is an abridged version of "Trurl's Machine" by Stanislaw Lem. I know that being read to isn't everybody's cup of tea, and honestly I don't expect any of these videos to get tons of views. But if you like classic science fiction, or maybe if you just like the idea of me reading to you, please go check it out, and subscribe to my Youtube Channel. Leave a comment, and we'll have some fun. P.S. Yes: I have a very deep voice. I know.

This is why online diet and fitness advice is so terrible

Online fitness advice is full of contradictions
You've probably noticed that the internet has a lot of completely contradictory advice when it comes to health, exercise, and fitness. Even if you dismiss articles written by obvious charlatans looking to make a buck, there are still seemingly sincere experts who all say different things. This contradiction among experts gets amplified by non-expert bloggers and journalists who, of course, indiscriminately publicize every theory they get their hands on. In the end, it just looks like nobody knows what they're talking about. So what's going on? I think there is a simple answer rooted in a basic psychological problem with how people approach the internet. Namely, not everything is about you.
