CATS: A Review

December 21st, 2019 Watching a man who once played a Holocaust survivor with complete control over magnetism lick milk out of a bowl and then smush his face against a wooden post is not a sight I will soon forget. Seeing Cats is not an experience I will soon forget. But wait: there’s more! IContinue reading “CATS: A Review”

Happy Holidays, Thank You & Brand New Website!

December 7th, 2019 Happy weekend, family and friends — longtime and brand new! I hope this letter finds you with a perfectly piping cup of cocoa, tremendously thick socks wrapped around your toes and a purring pet passed out by your feet. Wherever you are, I hope you’re well and having a peaceful season. IContinue reading “Happy Holidays, Thank You & Brand New Website!”

The Worst Book > Your Best Idea

July 25th, 2019 The worst book on a shelf is, believe it or not, still better than your best idea. This is true because the finished book has the virtue of being complete and existing in a sharable form. “That does not mean a terrible book is better than this amazing movie idea I’ve hadContinue reading “The Worst Book > Your Best Idea”

I Love That You Love It

April 30th, 2019 An open letter to those of you who don’t “get” superhero films (or comics or just like to poo poo all over things that other people love): Marvel just released a film that is essentially about grief and the act of moving on, and it made $1.2 billion its opening weekend. IfContinue reading “I Love That You Love It”

Art Owes You Nothing

April 28th, 2019 Art owes you nothing. If you find light, or find hope, or joy or peace or love in art, ultimately that’s on you. Similarly, if you look at a work of art and it pisses you off, or deeply upsets you, or makes you angry or sad or indifferent — that isContinue reading “Art Owes You Nothing”

Mister Sandman

April 14th, 2019 I just finished reading all ten volumes of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman. This will be a long post, so I’ll see two, maybe three of you down there at the end. Rarely in your life do you experience a work of art in which you are changed and you can never goContinue reading “Mister Sandman”

Preconceived Notions

March 3rd, 2019 Going into something with the intent of not liking it during and after is a very popular pastime for a lot of people. Whether it’s having preconceived, negative opinions and judgements on movies, television shows, books or any other forms of art and entertainment, people just really love to hate things theyContinue reading “Preconceived Notions”

Jimmy Kimmel Saved My Life

February 8th, 2019 I’ve been on-record as someone who is agnostic and wary of organized religion, but who is deeply spiritual regardless. It’s a weird juxtaposition, a multiversal worldview, but it works for me. I preface this story with that statement because I do believe in gifts from gods and messages from the universe. IContinue reading “Jimmy Kimmel Saved My Life”

Introduction 2019

January 15th, 2019 Hi. This is about me. I’m the guy in this photo. Not the Joker. The guy behind him working on a dream. I was born in the 80’s and am a lifelong comics and pop culture fan. I’ve expressed myself artistically in a lot of different ways over the years — IContinue reading “Introduction 2019”

Stan Lee

November 12th, 2018 With great power comes great responsibility. I’m feeling a lot of feelings right now. Some of them okay, some of them fine and some of them the downright worst. It may sound absurd and naive, but I came to the internet to find solace. To find intimate words and feelings and thoughtsContinue reading “Stan Lee”
