gut reactions to #thelastjedi

George Lucas often said not to be so precious about Star Wars. Rian Johnson listened. Last night, surrounded by my oldest pals, I watched in awe as The Last Jedi unfolded in front of my eyes. The lead-up to these films is somewhat embarrassing for me. I’m always more stressed than a human should be […]

5 Missed Opportunities in Transformers: The Last Knight

Caution: Spoilers Ahead! I’ve just returned from my 2nd viewing of Transformers: The Last Knight and subsequent toy hunt. Took a second run to process. Fortunately, I liked it. Especially the second time around. It’s not my favorite, but definitely up there, and a lot of fun in the theater. However, there are some glaring […]

peace out, 2016

2017. That number just sounds cooler already. I have a real love/hate thing going on with 2016.

Perhaps not enough people voted for those […]

Practical household items, home furnishings, appliances, and kitchenware. On my side? Just the opposite. A lifetime of frivolous purchases and […]

ancient wookie mourning rituals

Newsflash: I love Star Wars. A lot. It should come as no surprise to anyone that I listen to a Star Wars podcast. Rebel Force Radio is one of the most polished, most entertaining shows I’ve ever listened to, and the only one I stick with consistently. And since the awesome awesome awesome Force Awakens […]

wiggle your big toe

I need to keep writing. Plain and simple. So here I go. I’m no stranger to breaks between projects. Hiatuses, even. Sometimes I even tell myself I quit forever! I know deep down it’s not true. Just feels good to shake your fist at the heavens sometimes, ya know? But the last few months have […]
