Baby, Do You Know What That’s Worth?

May 31st, 2021 There’s an episode of Black Mirror called San Junipero that is based on the idea of a digital life and afterlife. It’s my favorite and one of the rare installments of Black Mirror that has an undeniably happy ending. Without spoiling anything, the end of the episode uses “Heaven Is A PlaceContinue reading “Baby, Do You Know What That’s Worth?”

In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night

May 31st, 2021 My mom was fearless. At least, that’s what she led people to believe. That, by nature, she was bold and wasn’t scared of nothin’. In reality, though, she was human. Green Lanterns, if you don’t know, are heroes who are part of an intergalactic Corp that protect our multiverse. They use ringsContinue reading “In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night”

The City

May 1st, 2021 Every year on my birthday, my favorite song to turn on and up (by one of my favorite bands, The 1975) is called The City. By the time I get to the pre-chorus, I find myself in the right mood. The lyrics there go: “Yeah, well, she said, ‘It’s your birthday. AreContinue reading “The City”

I Do I Do Appreciate You

April 11th, 2021 So, my giveaway didn’t go as planned: I didn’t get a single new review on any major sites like Amazon. Instead of randomly choosing a winner, I just handpicked some people who have been consistently supportive of me and my work (and who I think would dig getting a thing in theContinue reading “I Do I Do Appreciate You”

Mom

July 26th, 2019 When I was seven years old, I had a Batman Returns-themed birthday party. Despite the fact that it says everything about who I ended up being as an adult (a dark, superhero-obsessed loser with a fairly self-aware sense of humor), that’s not why I love this recently unearthed photo. I love itContinue reading “Mom”

Hey, Shorty

May 1st, 2019 I saw an interview with J.Lo in which she said that men are “useless” until they turn 33. I can’t even argue with that. I’m a clandestine member of a team that is part Fight Club, part church, and I got fired up today. We were talking about perfection and the sinContinue reading “Hey, Shorty”
