Morphin’ Time

June 26th, 2021 GEEKING. OUT. (Politely, of course.) It’s no secret that my pop culture influences are deep, vast, and embedded in my DNA. But few can call themselves legitimate cornerstones of my youth, and Power Rangers is definitely that. When I was a young(er) dude, my dad took me to meet Walter Jones, theContinue reading “Morphin’ Time”

Everywhere You Look

July 20th, 2021 It’s been brought to my attention by multiple people over the last few weeks that I have been talking about Full House a lot, and watching it with curious regularity. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t begin questioning why I’ve been doing this. With the 90’s being the latest era toContinue reading “Everywhere You Look”

Netflix Review: Sweet Tooth

June 6th, 2021 I just finished the first season of Sweet Tooth (now on Netflix).

Happy Earth Day from Mars

April 22nd, 2021 I was brainwashed as a child to love and deeply care for my planet. And I couldn’t be more grateful. If you’re my age, you might have been, too. So how did this happen? If you were a child of the 70’s and 80’s, you lived through what many consider to beContinue reading “Happy Earth Day from Mars”

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.

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”
