Stranger Things 4

May 30th, 2022 Stranger Things 4 is a masterpiece. It is one of the best-ever examples of genre storytelling, and how it can explore complex emotional and psychological ideas that traditional storytelling just can’t. It’s both affirming and inspirational, for a person like me. I will absolutely spoil nothing here, but I do want toContinue reading “Stranger Things 4”

Free Comic Book Day 2022

May 7th, 2022 It’s Free Comic Book Day, an event that celebrates an art form that has had not only a substantial impact on culture and society, but has a deeply personal connection with the people who love it. I’m one of those people. I create comics (see: The Weirdos: Volume I, a graphic novelContinue reading “Free Comic Book Day 2022”

Star Wars Day 2022

May 4th, 2022 Happy Star Wars Day. I have written at length about my love for that galaxy far, far away several times (even recently, as I was going through my first viewing of the Clone Wars television series), so I’ll keep it light (side) today. Cold World is a love letter to many things.Continue reading “Star Wars Day 2022”

[Clone] War & [Clone] Peace

March 24th, 2022 I freaking love Star Wars. Always have. There is, to me, no such thing as bad Star Wars. I’m not of the original generation of fans (because they are old and I so clearly am not), so it always existed in a peripheral way to me until the Special Editions were releasedContinue reading “[Clone] War & [Clone] Peace”

The Outsiders

March 7th, 2022 People who belong uphold the status quo, both because it benefits them and because they can’t imagine any other way; the outsiders are the ones who push us ever forward. I often find the universe giving me simultaneous, overlapping examples of something I need to learn or remember, because I am aContinue reading “The Outsiders”

Pathways To Bliss

February 22nd, 2022 A cliché usually becomes a cliché for a reason, and that reason is usually because it’s true. Besides watching his interviews and studying the examples of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, I hadn’t dug too deep into Joseph Campbell’s catalog. Campbell was what everyone read. Lucas used Campbell to create StarContinue reading “Pathways To Bliss”

An Ode to the Rescue Rangers

February 16th, 2022 An Ode to the Rescue Rangers If you’re following along, you may have seen me lose my mind over the new Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers trailer yesterday. In fact, I have been abnormally salivating since the project was first announced. The original series was one of my absolute favorites growing up.Continue reading “An Ode to the Rescue Rangers”

Suggestion Box

February 10, 2022 My dog Marvel and I are working on stuff, and we would love your input; we want to hear your thoughts and suggestions! I’m putting together ideas for merchandise, both for purchase at my store/conventions, and for incentive gifts when people support my work. So what do you want to see? WhatContinue reading “Suggestion Box”

An Aside on Piracy

February 9, 2022 People stealing shit isn’t new. America is full of hypocrisy; the same people who say capitalism works use their cousin’s Netflix password and pirate films they don’t feel they should have to pay for. If you and I went out to eat, and at the end of the meal you suggested weContinue reading “An Aside on Piracy”
