The Universe Is Bigger Than God

August 16th, 2021 I get asked regularly about why I don’t believe in a capital-G God, mostly by people who are genuinely curious or just want a different point of view on things. I realize that there may be value in putting these words out into the world, to validate them and maybe other peopleContinue reading “The Universe Is Bigger Than God”

Free Comic Book Day 2021

August 14th, 2021 Today is Free Comic Book Day, often (accurately) referred to as “Geek Christmas,” and I can’t believe this tradition is celebrating 20 years already, kicking off in 2002. (Also, how can something that started this century already be celebrating a 20th anniversary?) I’ve written at length, in past posts and essays, aboutContinue reading “Free Comic Book Day 2021”

How You Remind Me

August 9th, 2021 I like everything. This isn’t true, of course. In fact, if you’ve ever played Nickelback in my presence you are well aware there are things I actively dislike. But I’m told this a lot because, generally, when people start shitting all over something, I am one of the first to try toContinue reading “How You Remind Me”

Words About Words

August 5th, 2021 I speak in metaphor. I know it’s normal for people to use things to talk about other things, but I sincerely can’t express myself without it. (Mild spoilers for Theia ahead so if you haven’t read it, like, what the heck are you even doing, get out of here and read it.)Continue reading “Words About Words”

Special, Magical, One-Of-A-Kind Being

August 2nd, 2021 You are a special, magical, one-of-a-kind being. But this isn’t one of those fluff “You are a special, magical, one-of-a-kind being” pieces. No, I bring evidence to my parties and you’re about to be handed some. There are some skills that are obvious, rare and undeniably cool. Successful chainsaw juggling, for instance.Continue reading “Special, Magical, One-Of-A-Kind Being”

A Query of Relativity

July 29th, 2021 To most people, a floor is a floor. It’s the bottom, the thing we stand on relative to the rest of the world, which rises above us. When we open our social media apps or just contemplate our place in the universe, we generally enter on the floor. We look up andContinue reading “A Query of Relativity”

Eat Us

July 26th, 2021 The reason that modern youth seem so supremely defiant now is because at no previous time in human history has it been so apparent that adults have no idea what the hell they are doing. Adults used to be able to hide behind the fact that we didn’t know what stupid thoughtsContinue reading “Eat Us”

Brushfire Cover Reveal!

July 25th, 2021 My squirrels! I am beyond excited to finally reveal the cover for my upcoming all-ages (yes, this one is for everybody!) graphic novel, Brushfire. I’ve been working on this story for a long time (and as you can see, it’s titled Wave 1, which means that it’s just the beginning of aContinue reading “Brushfire Cover Reveal!”

Wake me up before you go go

July 23rd, 2021 I think that heaven can be a dangerous idea. Before I take you there, though, let’s talk about the benefits of believing in an everlasting life. At its base, the belief that life never truly ends helps appease what William James calls the “worm at the core of all our usual springsContinue reading “Wake me up before you go go”

i love u all so much

July 22nd, 2021 Oh, m’gosh. First things first: my deepest, sincerest, most saccharine gratitude to every single wonderful soul who attended the Book(s) Release Party today, whether you showed up over an hour early, or stayed with me until the very end (and maybe even a few minutes past that). I’ve said it before, andContinue reading “i love u all so much”
