The Power of Positivity, Or I Just Watched The First Season of Ted Lasso And I Have A Lot Feelings To Share With You That I Hope You’ll Read

September 5th, 2021 “It’s the hope that kills you.” It’s a sentiment shared by every Minnesota sports fan and an ironic motto in the show Ted Lasso. Oh, you haven’t seen Ted Lasso? Let me join the mob of fans telling you to watch it now. It’s a show about two kinds of football, sure,Continue reading “The Power of Positivity, Or I Just Watched The First Season of Ted Lasso And I Have A Lot Feelings To Share With You That I Hope You’ll Read”

Book Review: Until The End Of Time

July 5th, 2021 I’m obsessed with Brian Greene (but don’t tell him, play it cool). He’s a physicist who writes and talks about science in the best way: for everyone. He’s been on my radar for years, but I’ve only really been getting into his work over the past few. And not just his own,Continue reading “Book Review: Until The End Of Time”

Push Comes To Shove

June 28th, 2021 My seventh book, Push, is locked and has been submitted for publication. (It’s not available for pre-order… yet.) As a creative person, sometimes you plan a multi-year project that, more or less, comes out exactly how you envisioned it (see: The Weirdos: Volume I, Them/Us). But, sometimes, a story comes along andContinue reading “Push Comes To Shove”

Fifty First Rates

June 15th, 2021 There’s this magic number we think about often as self-published writers: 50. That’s the number of reviews to takes on Amazon to get their attention. It is both a small number and (as someone who’s largest set of reviews is 7 for a book that’s almost 8 years old) an impossibly greatContinue reading “Fifty First Rates”

Netflix Review: Sweet Tooth

June 6th, 2021 I just finished the first season of Sweet Tooth (now on Netflix). I am one of those nerds who has read the book; in this case, I own every graphic novel that collects the comic book series that Sweet Tooth was adapted from (and am a massive Jeff Lemire fan, the writer/artistContinue reading “Netflix Review: Sweet Tooth”

It’s Gonna Be May

If you’re looking to get me an absolutely free gift for my upcoming 21st b-day (shut up, it’s close enough), I have an idea: please post a reviewContinue reading “It’s Gonna Be May”

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”

I Do I Do Appreciate You

April 11th, 2021 So, my giveaway didn’t go as planned: I didn’t get a single new review on any major sites like Amazon. Instead of randomly choosing a winner, I just handpicked some people who have been consistently supportive of me and my work (and who I think would dig getting a thing in theContinue reading “I Do I Do Appreciate You”

The Last Blockbuster Generation

April 4th, 2021 I watched a movie called The Last Blockbuster on Netflix the other night, and even though it was, on the surface, about the literal last Blockbuster Video in Bend, Oregon, and about how the company itself rose and fell, it ended up being about a lot more. It’s about Sandi, the managerContinue reading “The Last Blockbuster Generation”
