(Non-spoiler review) It’s not often that a horror movie surprises me. It’s even rarer for a January horror movie to be good. And even rarer, a horror movie with a doll that I find even remotely tolerable. And yet, here is it — The Boy. I have to admit when I saw the first trailer […]


A Russian man claimed that Fallout 4 is “too addictive” and thus destroyed his job and marriage, AND the game should come with a warning label. He is suing Bethesda and a Russian company for his “emotional distress.” According to the article: He regularly skipped work, which resulted in his employers firing him. He stopped meeting […]


Here’s another (more random) comic series I’m going to do, Versus. Pretty self-explanatory. These are things I’ve been doodling for years. I’ve always wanted to draw something super simple like The Oatmeal or Allie Brosh does, or even the hilariously awesome Boxjam’s Doodle back in the day. I’ve always been a bit envious of funny artists who draw […]

Taking Up Space Comic

A long time ago I used to draw two comic strips. The more popular of the two was Todd and Penguin, a family-friendly all-ages comic that I did for eight years. Then there was Taking Up Space, a comic I did off and on — way more off than on. Taking Up Space had a lot fewer readers, […]


Wow. That’s the word that I found myself saying time after time as I watched Sense8, Netflix’s 12-episode series by the Wachowski siblings (The Matrix movies) and J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5). Wow, I’ve never seen this before. Wow, how did they pull that off? Wow, what GREAT writing! Wow, what great characters! Wow. Just. […]


I’ve always felt like an outsider.

When I was a kid, I was one of the only white kids in my neighborhood. When I was in middle school, we’d moved to the suburbs, where I was one of the poorest kids. After that, I gained weight and had horrible acne, which earned me all kinds of unpleasant nicknames.


So, hey, how’s it going? Typically when people return from long absences from their blogs, they go into a litany of reasons/excuses of why they were gone, then say how they promise they’ll do better to post more frequently, and it just sounds like a friend/lover begging for forgiveness for being a jerk. (And hey, who hasn’t […]


Hi! This post was supposed to run on Monday, but I wound up holding onto it for a day or so to see if I still wanted to post it. Why would I hold it? Well, it’s kind of negative. I know, big surprise. But I try to keep these podcasts positive, because despite my now […]


I taped this episode last week, but wound up using it for today because it was raining all day and night yesterday. In this episode, I talk about an industry in its death throes as artists attempt to cobble a living together. No, I’m not talking about traditional publishing (though I very well could be), […]
