I really must be living under a rock because I slept through the first six seasons of Comic Trips, and only recently discovered it through a link I saw on Facebook. Comic Trips is the kinder, much friendlier version of Toy Hunter (sorry Jordan!) -- it's a YouTube show that follows New Jersey-based married couple, Paul and Kat on their adventures hunting down nostalgia in all … [Read more...] about Comic Trips — my new obsession
It's been a looooong time since I've done one of these, but I've watched so many great movies and shows lately, that I just had to write up something. Needless to say, I spoil everything so be warned. Kong: Skull Island Yes! They didn't screw it up! This was such a great big monster movie, and I could not have asked for anything more. The movie was smartly set up as … [Read more...] about What have I seen!?!
Man, it's been too long since I've written anything! When I don't show up around here, it's actually because I'm busy with work, which is a GOOD thing, or I've been hit by a bus, which is NOT so good. I own my own graphic design business, and the work load is constantly ebbing and flowing. When you see me post articles every day, you can bet that business is slow (which is … [Read more...] about A belated new year’s greetings

Halloween is always my favorite time of year, but the season doesn't begin until the family makes the trip to Cox Farms Fall Festival. The Fields of Fear corn maze is my favorite attraction. Most of the sights are fun and family-friendly, but the absolute creepiest part: the aliens. Scattered throughout the corn are life-sized aliens that have been strung up to … [Read more...] about The truth is out there
I don't consider myself to be a fearful person, but when the Pop Culture League challenged us to come up with the things that we fear most, my mind wandered to some dark corners that I usually try to avoid. I'm okay with a lot of things that might make others run -- heights, spiders, snakes, horror movies -- those aren't so bad, but after reading a few other responses to this … [Read more...] about I’m quaking in my boots
