What’s the Matter with Kids These Days?

As I write this, our household is nearing the moment in which the kids head back to school and my house is finally empty and quiet again for the first time in months. So, here I am, trying to get everything I can done before this delta variant (or any other of the variants) shutsContinue reading “What’s the Matter with Kids These Days?”

Old Drafts: The Legend of Buddy Hero

I thought I’d share a little bit of old writing for all of you, just to give you an idea of the process I’ve gone through over the years. The following little bit of writing was one of the first things I wrote when trying to work out my ideas for The Legend of BuddyContinue reading “Old Drafts: The Legend of Buddy Hero”

Book Review: Rewired: The Post-Cyberpunk Anthology

I’m not a big fan of genre fiction. The very idea that fiction is made to fit within little buckets gets me a little itchy. Just the other day I was in a conversation with an author who was looking for books in which the main character is a writer. Like, that was a typeContinue reading “Book Review: Rewired: The Post-Cyberpunk Anthology”

Murdering Babies

Everyone get excited, it’s another white male here to tell you all about what you should think on abortion! I struggle with abortion.

Video Game Review: Doom (2016)

Right now we’re in the midst of waiting for the release of a new Ghostbusters movie, a new He-Man movie, another LittleContinue reading “Video Game Review: Doom (2016)”

A Mid-Pandemic Retrospective

Back in March of 2020, when we were first shutting down due to the severity of the impact to our hospitals brought upon us due to the COVID-19 outbreaks, I’ll admit, I felt a little weird. Like, things were shut down. I wasn’t allowed to go anywhere. Suddenly my kids were home 100% of theContinue reading “A Mid-Pandemic Retrospective”
