Since I was a teenager, I have been telling stories for the fun of it through film, video, audio drama, and more. Check out many of those projects here, or read on for comments on other stories or items that catch my interest.

Culling the Comic Collection / Batman Stories You Probably Haven’t Heard Of

September 22, 2014 Leave a comment

I’ve only recently returned from a trip to New York, which meant that I’ve been spending time with my parents, visiting friends, stomping around the old stomping grounds (always stomping this way and that, waking up the neighbors with all that noisy stomping) and of course…

Going through my old comic collection that my parents have generously not tossed into the trash. Read more…

Don’t (Just) Do What You Love

September 20, 2014 1 comment

Chase your dreams.  Pursue your passion.  Get off your chair, out of your rut, out of your comfort zone and start doing something that will really make you happy.  Move beyond your limited, routine existence, and be extraordinary.  Not just a little happy, but really happy.

This is the message I’d been seeing all over the place a while ago – commercials on TV, filmmaking teaching videos on Vimeo, and more, I’m sure.  Images of people dancing, playing basketball, and playing the drums in the middle of a field are all telling me to do what I love!

A worthy message, for sure.  It’s just a matter of figuring out what I love.  Read more…

The Way Out (Friday Fictioneers)

September 11, 2014 7 comments

It’s been just over a year now, but I somewhat randomly decided to look at this week’s prompt for Friday Fictioneers, a weekly writing challenge in which people pen stories of roughly 100 words inspired by a weekly photo.  At first, the picture didn’t inspire anything, but then suddenly, something emerged… Read more…

Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise of Electro

September 10, 2014 2 comments

I finally saw Amazing Spider-Man 2!  (Thanks to all that recent air travel that I’ve done).

I wish I could say it was a great movie, but I can’t.

Of course, I almost always wish the movie I am watching is great (I mean, who wants to see a bad movie?), but in this case, it’s a particular shame because parts of the movie were great.

Not just good…they were great.  They were outstanding! Read more…
