Eat Us

July 26th, 2021 The reason that modern youth seem so supremely defiant now is because at no previous time in human history has it been so apparent that adults have no idea what the hell they are doing. Adults used to be able to hide behind the fact that we didn’t know what stupid thoughtsContinue reading “Eat Us”

Brushfire Cover Reveal!

July 25th, 2021 My squirrels! I am beyond excited to finally reveal the cover for my upcoming all-ages (yes, this one is for everybody!) graphic novel, Brushfire. I’ve been working on this story for a long time (and as you can see, it’s titled Wave 1, which means that it’s just the beginning of aContinue reading “Brushfire Cover Reveal!”

Tangled

July 14th, 2021 There was a fun anniversary yesterday that I kept thinking on but never got around to posting about. On July 13th, 2003, I had my high school graduation party, and The Next Step released their first EP, called Tangled Cords. I know 18 years seems like a random and not very seminalContinue reading “Tangled”

Visible At Night

July 5th, 2021 Whenever I felt invisible, my mom used to remind me I wasn’t. That sounds stupid to say, but it’s true, and now on days when I feel invisible sometimes I worry I won’t be found by anybody. It is very easy to look up at the sky and be impressed by aContinue reading “Visible At Night”

Morphin’ Time

June 26th, 2021 GEEKING. OUT. (Politely, of course.) It’s no secret that my pop culture influences are deep, vast, and embedded in my DNA. But few can call themselves legitimate cornerstones of my youth, and Power Rangers is definitely that. When I was a young(er) dude, my dad took me to meet Walter Jones, theContinue reading “Morphin’ Time”

Cats Giving Men Fish

June 23rd, 2021 If you want to make an adult suspicious, be nice to them. That sounds counterintuitive, but it’s not. Common wisdom tells us that as we get older, we are required to become less naive, more cautious, and to refrain from being blindly kind to people in order to prove to others thatContinue reading “Cats Giving Men Fish”

Everywhere You Look

July 20th, 2021 It’s been brought to my attention by multiple people over the last few weeks that I have been talking about Full House a lot, and watching it with curious regularity. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t begin questioning why I’ve been doing this. With the 90’s being the latest era toContinue reading “Everywhere You Look”

Alarm For The Cause Of Being Brave

June 4th, 2021 I’m almost done writing a book (I may have mentioned it earlier) and it has taken me to some of the darkest places writing has ever taken me (I also mentioned that in passing). One of its lessons is about the power of being honest with yourself (and the power dishonesty canContinue reading “Alarm For The Cause Of Being Brave”

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”

Homes

May 15th, 2021 Hey. I am beyond exhausted and overwhelmed at the moment, but I wanted to sincerely thank everyone who made time for us today. We made it work despite being a full year out of small talk practice, and your presence was felt and can’t be overstated. Today I felt a huge partContinue reading “Homes”
