“Dammit, I wanna trick-or-treat too!”

For some reason, the whole world seems to be having Halloween fun tonight but me. Kids are trick-or-treating, adults are going to costume parties, teenage “devil worshippers” are up to all sorts of mischief (lock up your cats tonight, people!). So what am I doing? Stuck at work, listening to callers rant about magazines (and in the background? Trick-or-treating sounds!). My job is full of the holiday spirit: cardboard scarecrows and little bags of bat-shaped pretzels. Whee!

(But I’m not bitter.)

Happy Hallowe’en!!

Happy Anniversary, Orson!

It’s the 70th anniversary of the famous “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast. Find it, listen to it, and recall a more innocent, simple era when radio could sway a nation into believing martians had invaded. Even today, it sounds impressive…

New video: Zorro

Not my best work, but hey… at least I’m making videos again.

Apart from the super-heroic sounds, the silence is deafening…

Hello again. Remember me?

Been away awhile, but still been here. Got tired of letting you folks hang, so today I decided “Dammit, I’m going to post something, no matter how long it takes to write it at work.

A lot of things happened suddenly, leading to the radio-silence here. Stepped-up intensity at work and in college led to not being able to spend as much time giving to the internet, only able to take. Add to that the previously-mentioned health problems of my father (who I’ve only recently have begun to know, really) and the increased hours at work (my wife lost her job), and I haven’t had the energy for the creative stuff. My pulp-hero video series on YouTube is on hiatus, the typing of my Challenger Storm novel is going slllloooooowwww… I know that the good stuff will come back soon, but not until things stabilize. I’m tired… really friggin’ tired. At the end of the day right now, I really only have the energy to point and click right now… and that’s where City of Heroes and City of Villains come in.
