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”

How 2 B a Gud Writer

May 5th, 2021 I think about “How To” books on writing often. Not favorably, mind you. I always wonder why people who spend their time reading them don’t just spend that time writing. Then I wondered: if I had to condense my thoughts on how to write to a tiny blog, what would that lookContinue reading “How 2 B a Gud Writer”

Do or Donut

May 3rd, 2021 My friend asked me for advice on being a dad the other day. In general, I don’t “give advice”; I choose to share my experiences and what I learned (or didn’t learn) from those times, in the hopes that maybe someone else can learn (or not learn) something from them, too. IContinue reading “Do or Donut”

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!!”

The Village Idiot

April 28th, 2021 I learned more than I readily admit about life and art from high school theater. This morning during my drive, I was thinking about something that happened during my favorite play that I was a part of, Cinderella Waltz, that ended up being a lifelong lesson in how to make art. InContinue reading “The Village Idiot”

You do you.

April 26th, 2021 I finished reading Neil Gaiman’s View From The Cheap Seats last night, which is a collection of his essays, reviews, introductions and conclusions. I love Neil Gaiman, because I have eyes and a brain and a heart. There are a lot of things in there that will, consciously or sub-, inspire myContinue reading “You do you.”

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”

Where No Ordinary Rabbit Would Dare

April 11th, 2021 This was a really fun one to do. Sometimes it just feels good to make something, as opposed to constantly be working towards a goal or multiple goals or all of the goals. I spent my day off watching all 13 episodes of Bucky O’Hare, a cartoon that came out when IContinue reading “Where No Ordinary Rabbit Would Dare”
