Just a quick reminder that my newest book - THIS IS A DOOR - is out now on Kindle and in paperback. This is a collection of some of my photography from over the years from the creepy to the cute. Here are a couple outtakes from some of the photos. BUY HERE!

Wondering Aloud

If we’re honest with ourselves it’s completely natural to wonder what happened to the people who used to populate our lives. Some we want to see that they’re happy and doing well and others you want to make sure that life is reminding them they’re jerks.  It’s completely normal, but not always healthy to look. … Continue reading Wondering Aloud

By Measures of Degree

There’s a frequent melody sung of late that goes something like this - Ohhh, the brain drain, the dear brain drain, what of the BRAAAAAIN DRAIN, what are we going to do?  It’s sort of catchy, it’s definitely got a groove.  It’s too similar though to this newer hit - Where did all the Woooooorkers… Continue reading By Measures of Degree

The Legacies We Leave

It’s hard to accurately reckon the effect someone has on you and your life. Outside of the obvious - he helped get me a job, she introduced me to the love of my life, they did this or that or whatever. That fact is that we don’t always know how deeply we are affected by… Continue reading The Legacies We Leave

What About Fall?

Living in a northern city, I can appreciate the trepidation that arrives with the changing of the leaves. It seems it’s either feast or famine for us thanks to the joys of climate change. We will get summer a little later and then we get a few days where it’s warm and makes you think… Continue reading What About Fall?

The Funhouse – movie review

It’s hard not to feel bad for the old titans of horror knowing that for many of them their lights were dimmed too early as their careers were derailed by studio systems that never fully appreciated all they had given to them. You think of someone like Tobe Hooper, whose TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE changed horror… Continue reading The Funhouse – movie review

Kings and Queens

The idea of having a monarch that oversees a nation feels a little outdated, doesn’t it? Sure, in many cases these are ornamental acknowledgments of the past and while they have a ‘say’ in things, they don’t run the nation. That isn’t always true, as you will get some countries where there is a ruler… Continue reading Kings and Queens

Books For The Monster Kids

When I was a kid I had no idea what a 'Monster Kid' was. I just knew that I liked scary stuff, and monsters, and Halloween. I knew that I loved to tell stories and pretend my play time was part of a movie. I was a monster kid without knowing it. Heck, one of… Continue reading Books For The Monster Kids

Baby Games

You would think it’d be tiresome by now, wouldn’t you, the hand-wringing and dire pronouncements about how superhero movies are KILLING CINEMA!  AND CULTURE! AND THE WORLD! Like, these are movies, man, is it all that dramatic? Really? I have talked about this in other blogs and as I said there, I get the dislike… Continue reading Baby Games

Guest Stars

It’s when our minds are off of our minds when some of our deepest thinking comes to us. Some of it welcome, and some of it not. Some thoughts sneaking in like unwanted visitors in the night, clumsily moving through the darkness, not caring if they wake us or not. I was driving my daughter… Continue reading Guest Stars

Woke Up This Way

You can tell we are at the edge of the world when troll culture has gone so far off the board that they are outraged about the casting of a FANTASY TELEVISION SERIES! In what world are we living where this is a thing that matters? In what world are we in that there are… Continue reading Woke Up This Way

THE BARBADOS PROJECT – found footage review

DARN IT! This is so close to good that it is super disappointing that it doesn’t bring it on home. These are the movies that disappoint the most because you can see what they were trying to do and this a sincere effort to make a neat movie, unlike SO many found footage films.  While… Continue reading THE BARBADOS PROJECT – found footage review

Introducing – THIS IS A DOOR

I am so, so excited to introduce you to my newest book THIS IS A DOOR, my first book of photography. I have struggled for a lot of my life with the many things I love to do but don't feel like I am good enough to say that I really DO it. I love… Continue reading Introducing – THIS IS A DOOR
