Swimming in the Schadenfraude

April 1st, 2021 One of the first TV shows I remember watching with my mom was America’s Funniest Home Videos. This show became an integral part of who I am as a human being, even inspiring the first chapter of my first book, ingeniously titled “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” If you don’t know, there’s aContinue reading “Swimming in the Schadenfraude”

2020: A Lesson, A Curriculum, An Education

I’m happy to see you today. My name is Dennis. I’m a lot of things — I’m theContinue reading “Introduction Version.2021”

The Queen’s Gambit: (Not a) Review

November 9th, 2020 There was a thing about The Queen’s Gambit for me. It’s the reason I’m making a whole post about it. This is more than just a review, if you read on.

O, Nostalgia

November 6th, 2020 Nostalgia is a powerful thing. It can transport you through time and space. It can trap you in pocket dimensions made of moments. It builds worlds from smells and sounds and feelings you had never felt before or since. I’m the kind of person who can feel nostalgia before it happens, whileContinue reading “O, Nostalgia”

Live & Let Live

October 3rd, 2020 Superheroes have taught me a lot of lessons, but I learned one as a kid that I never forgot, and it feels especially relevant now. At the end of any Spider-Man or Batman cartoon or comic book, I always found myself with an uneasy feeling. I didn’t like how they let theContinue reading “Live & Let Live”

September 12th, 2020 Shall we unironically discuss The Social Dilemma on social media? We shall! Let’s get this out of the way: if you’re a human and use any social media platform, this is essential viewing. It’s only 90 minutes long, and it contains information that should be shared with every human for the sakeContinue reading “The Social Dilemma”

You’ve Already Done Enough

July 26th, 2020 This was crazy fun to discover tonight; it’s definitely a highlight of my summer. Like so many before me, I feel like I artistically wasted my twenties (despite releasing three albums [with accompanying music videos], playing countless shows, putting out a web series, publishing three novellas, blah blah blah). Then you findContinue reading “You’ve Already Done Enough”

The Best Television (imho) of the 2010’s

December 30th, 2019 The Best Television (imho) of the 2010’s. As everyone with an opinion (hello, internet!) gathers to share their best-of lists of the decade, I am going to be uncharacteristically reserved; I don’t think I have a lot to add to the conversation when it comes to topics such as music or film.Continue reading “The Best Television (imho) of the 2010’s”
