Ditch the man-cave, bring back The Study. Make men wise and great again.

Ditch the Man Cave



Dr. JT Velikovsky – after Ph.D

Which reminds me of this FaceBook/Twitter meme, from the very amusing, Sh*t Academics Say Twitter-feed:


If you’ve seen the movies Titanic (1997) and The Revenant (2015), this is funny.

(…And just in case you wondered: no, I’m not a younger version of Professor Daniel C. Dennett…*)


Smiling out a window (aged 3), a boy (aged 12) and his dog on the farm, skydiving, firefighting, playing in a band, introducing Roger Corman at a film festival, shearing a sheep, pointing at a gorge (a location-recce for a film project), acting in a film, and, at my roll-top desk in my Study.

Hey – this talk by Jane McGonigal is cool.

4 cool things Jane McGonigal

* (But – Dan Dennett is my favourite philosopher-! See also: consilience.)

See also Metamodernism, I guess?


Dr JT Velikovsky, Ph.D.

High-RoI Story/Screenplay/Movie/Transmedia Researcher

& Evolutionary Systems Theorist

JT Velikovsky is also a produced feature-film screenwriter, and million-selling Transmedia writer-director-producer. He has been a professional story analyst for major movie studios, film funding organizations, and for the National Writer’s Guild.

He is also the creator of Creative Practice Theory, and discovered the universal structure of the meme, the unit of culture.

For what it’s worth he also likes skydiving, and is a volunteer rural firefighter. For more see: http://on-writering.blogspot.com/


P.S. – As an interesting exercise, perhaps one day I may publish my: `Inverse-CV’.

i.e., like, say: Princeton Professor Publishes his CV of Failures (2016)

LOL-! It would likely be about nine times as long as my `CV of Projects That Worked’, above. But, that’s creativity for you… 🙂

At any rate – I hope that you enjoy reading my PhD research blog. (If not, my CV. Though it is an Illustrated CV… I think, that was kind of creative…? Well, sort-of. I don’t know. You can decide!)
