The Post Con Blues

I've been to a number of conventions, some good, some bad, but I almost always end up with the post con blues.  I'm having them right now, a feeling like the world is a little less shiny, that tomorrow is back to a grind of doldrums and boring meetings.  The energy of the con is...

A New Hope

The world has become darker, more cynical and less fun than it was in the 1980s and 1970s.  Oh, sure, there were problems; oil shortages, hostages, Iran/Contra, but things didn't feel so dark and depressing.  These days you have politicians running on platforms of pure hatred and bigotry winning national elections, a 24 hour "news"...

So Long, Son of Beast

This is actually old news, but I just learned that Son of Beast at Kings Island Amusement Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, has been torn down.  This gives me a tremendous sadness. The primary reason this bothers me is because that was my favorite ride there.  In fact, it's one of the only rides I could... Continue Reading →

How to Fix Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Tomorrow night, the second half of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season one kicks off.  As a fan of Marvel comics in general and specifically of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), I really hope the show gets out of low gear and starts doing something with all of the potential it has.  So far the show...

Hating Women Characters is OK!

I've been reading some articles recently on I09 and elsewhere about how people hate certain female characters, and how it seems to be the "strong, independent" female characters people hate.  Examples are usually Skylar White from Breaking Bad or Lori Grimes from The Walking Dead.  There's a clear subtext that it's because of sexism, though...

On Writing Erotica

Recently I've dipped by toe into the pool of erotica, writing a series of stories set in a swinger club that I call, appropriately enough, Tales from the Club.  The stories aren't housed on wordpress - they contain very adult content, so I have them on a certain website that allows such things.  I won't...

A brief moment of pure hapiness

Please excuse this post, for it shall surely ramble. I experienced a moment a pure happiness today.  It's been quite some time really, since I've had that feeling.  It's like all the weight dropping from your shoulders, just for an instant, and the world feels like for at least a little while like it will...

Memories of Karazhan

I am a recovering World of Warcraft addict.  Actually, I'm not recovering at all considering I'm now engrossed in Star Wars: The Old Republic.  Still, it's been a few years since I ventured into the magical lands of Azeroth.  I'd like to share with you my favorite thing about WoW - the twisted instance known...

The Pussification of Halloween

It's that time of year.  The leaves are turning, the nights are getting longer, the skies turning gray with autumn rain and the wind starting to once again sharpen its teeth.  Soon it will be Halloween, and with it, Beggar's Night.  I simply have to ask one question, though: when did we become such a...

Dealing with Depression with an Owl

I noticed at Comics Alliance a nice article on Boggle the Owl.  This is a great blog for those of us who struggle with depression. I have, throughout my life, dealt with severe depression.  For most of my life it was un-diagnosed.  When I finally got help, it was still a very difficult thing to... Continue Reading →
