Hello, all! Just another periodic update on what in the world is going on in the life of your favorite blogger of all things... well, of all things, I suppose. It's going to be fairly hectic between now and--I was going to say the end of summer, but really it's until the end of the … Continue reading It’s a Summer of Go-Go-Go in 2017

Look, this has been covered many, … Continue reading Stop With the “Parsec” Argument!
The air grew stuffier as the cavern narrowed, progressing ever deeper into the mountainside. My headlamp, which had barely reached the walls of the cavern earlier, now lit up the entirety of the passage through which I now passed. I passed a handful of passages that branched off the main path. I stuck to that, … Continue reading A Creative Trifle, Part 1
...I just turned a movie off before I finished it. Twenty minutes into Don't Breathe, which I had actually been wanting to see, I turned it off. I didn't care. About any of it. That sucks.

Accompanied by … Continue reading MST3K – The Return
In light of the apparently atrocious organization and line management currently happening, the organizers of the Star Wars Celebration issued statement concerning the event currently going on in Florida for the 40th Anniversary.

The first (and only) novel-length manuscript I've finished, it's the story I've wanted to tell for literally decades. Beta readers, presenting pieces of … Continue reading Ever had a project…?
I have been making a concerted effort to catch up on all of the multitudinous television that I am woefully behind on watching. While it may take me awhile, I am happy to say that I have at least made myself current on The Walking Dead (Ho-LEE shit) and now NBC's not-superhero superhero show, Powerless. … Continue reading Follow-Up on NBC’s “Powerless”
Well, that certainly didn't take long, did it? After the debacle of an "adaptation" that was the Scarlett Johansson vehicle, Ghost in the Shell, the controversy-plagued live-action adaptation of the classic anime, it has been announced there will be a new Anime in the works soon, to be co-directed by the visionaries behind the Ghost … Continue reading Ghost in the Shell – New Anime Announced
