Own Your Dream

There is a scary trend that seems to be creeping into the Arts, and into life in general and that is the Get Rich Quick mentality of dreams.  There is a sense that one's dream is SO important that others should want to make it come true and that it should supersede the dreams of… Continue reading Own Your Dream

SUMMER OF MASSACRE – review

­Summer of Massacre           Ok, now I have seen everything.  It took a while but we finally got a horror movie trying to be Sin City.  Sort of.  The charm of Sin City though lay with its characters that they all intersected and interacted and lived in the backdrop of a surreal city where reality… Continue reading SUMMER OF MASSACRE – review

Natural Bored Salesman

I am no sales person. Salesman. Whatever. I ain't it. I wish I was, I do, really.  A lot of my jobs I have had would have been waaay easier.  Alas, it was not meant to be.  I hate asking for help and asking someone to buy something, pitching them on something, is just not… Continue reading Natural Bored Salesman

Free For All

I mentioned in my last post MY theories on why the Arts have been in a slow motion decline.  There's no science or research in my opinion outside of simply being in a small scene and seeing how things seem to be trending.  One of the issues I brought up was the idea of cost. … Continue reading Free For All

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark: Blackwood’s Guide to Dangerous Fairies – REVIEW

   EEE! I love books like this.  The strange tie in books you never hear about but which add a layer to another work, like a film.  I had a similar experience with the Blair Witch books that came out.  Books that created another layer of creep to an already scary story.  Here we have… Continue reading Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark: Blackwood’s Guide to Dangerous Fairies – REVIEW

You Know, Without The Pretense

There is something of a mystery with artsy folk and writers.  There’s a sense of disdain for other people that work in their same trade.  It’s sort of like how petty music people will act when the… Continue reading You Know, Without The Pretense

We're All In This Together Now

Living in Flint it gets hard to see the future beyond the crumbling facade of the past.  Every few months it seems as if there's another article, another opinion piece, another poll that lists Flint as a horrible place to work, to live, and to spend your time and money.  It's as if Flint is… Continue reading We're All In This Together Now

A Glimpse Of The Shadow

   This is one of the many pictures I took today for the cover of A Shadow Over Ever. You get a feel for what I am aiming for, the general idea I was going for, without seeing the for real-real image I have chosen. I wanted something that evoked Pete Anders, the main character… Continue reading A Glimpse Of The Shadow
