mr. nobody

May 7th, 2021 Nobody changes. I hear it all the time. It’s ingrained as a moral in our stories and popular culture. Folks say it about other folks regularly, like those other folks don’t say the same thing about them. Nobody changes. I think it makes people comfortable to think this. Everyone is something, andContinue reading “mr. nobody”

Happy Time is a Solid State Release Day!!

May 1st, 2021 Happy May Day, and Happy Time is a Solid State Release Day!! (The only person who can steal my thunder on a day like today is me!) If you watch only one video with my face in it this year, make it this one. (Pretty please?) I talk about what Time isContinue reading “Happy Time is a Solid State Release Day!!”

New Interview Alert! Basement Boy Banter Podcast

April 21, 2021 Five years after I was the first guest co-host on Basement Boy Banter, both the show and I return, this time to promote my new collection of essays, Time is a Solid State. Like my book, our conversation covers a wide lens of topics, from the multiversally nerdy to the intimately personal.Continue reading “New Interview Alert! Basement Boy Banter Podcast”

Breaking Bad

April 20th, 2021 This morning I was cleaning out my phone (it feels five pounds lighter without all those Baby Yoda memes [remember Baby Yoda memes?!]) when I came across something that I obviously saved for a reason. It reads: “If you’re ever scared that you’re a bad person, remember that bad people don’t careContinue reading “Breaking Bad”

Legos on a Loop

April 15th, 2021 This is going to be a loaded post. I give you this warning ahead of time as a courtesy: if you’re having a nice day, just scrolling along, having funsies, I encourage you to continue on ahead unimpeded. Have a good one. If you’re still here: let’s do this. There is aContinue reading “Legos on a Loop”

Of a Feather

April 8th, 2021 This morning at work, I saw this bird. Well, no, I didn’t initially see it. I heard it. It was repeatedly trying to break its way into the restaurant, flying again and again against the windows and doors, which I found to be bizarre but fascinating. I took this photo and IContinue reading “Of a Feather”

Star Bored

March 26th, 2021 What still puts you in awe? On July 20th, 1969, human beings from the planet Earth, improbably and against substantial odds, landed on the Moon and took a walk on it. To say it was a big deal would short change the actual events. Over half a billion people watched it unfoldContinue reading “Star Bored”

Have Mercy

March 22nd, 2021 Jesus did me a solid today. All over the planet, people are having difficult conversations about the state of our world. My family is no exception. My dad and I had a discussion this morning that typified the idea of “heated”: it started by boiling over, then simmered as we discussed factualContinue reading “Have Mercy”

Famous Last Blurbs

March 15th, 2021 This is going to be the last substantial post I make for a while, because this is the last post that’s going to make it in the book. It’s weird because some of you will read these words on a screen and some of you will read them on paper, and thisContinue reading “Famous Last Blurbs”
