The Trend

I don’t think I am different from other writers in wondering what it is that sets what I write apart from everyone else.  You know, what makes MY writing MINE. I can stab at some of the ideas and themes, family, faith, death, revenge, the old favorites. I deal with small towns more than cities,… Continue reading The Trend

Following The Streams

Maybe you’re like me and don’t want to be hurt again.  You tried, you trusted, you opened your heart up and you got burned.  You got burned good.  So good that it stings just to think about it and you swear, NEVER AGAIN all while you eye the new shows about to hit the streamers… Continue reading Following The Streams

Entitled

I think it’s pretty fair to say that all of us, at one time or another have felt entitled to something. That doesn’t mean that the entitlement came from an ugly place, a place of selfishness, but that we felt we deserved something because of who we are. For example, you, as a human, deserve… Continue reading Entitled

Station Break

Hey there, friend and pal. Hey there, indeed. This is just a brief interruption of your usual spoonful of sugary sweetness wrapped up in a blog or review to mention my fictional exploits. As I mention from time to time. I am a writer. Author, if you will. I have written and published over twenty… Continue reading Station Break

Fan-Dumb

It gets exhausting being a fan. It’s hard enough to keep straight the reboots, prequels, sequels, offshoots, and all the merchandise that comes out in every flavor possible without then having to ask yourself - am I one of THOSE fans? And the THOSE in this case are the fans that take things not just… Continue reading Fan-Dumb

End of Days – blog

You hear it a lot but things were simpler when I was a kid.  It’s not that there was no established internet, or streaming services, or faux-lebrities that found fame because of a stupid viral incident.  No, it was that the world outside of the high school and towns I grew up in seemed so… Continue reading End of Days – blog

GODFORSAKEN – Found Footage Review

One of the great sins I am finding with a lot of found footage films is the idea of creating so much of a tease that there’s no real way to pay it off. They are so desperate to make the movie exciting and interesting and scary that they don’t really think of how they’re… Continue reading GODFORSAKEN – Found Footage Review

FOLLOWERS – found footage review         

If there is something ripe for capturing when it comes to found footage it’s the prevalence of influencers and social media celebrities and how they film everything they do. I think most of us roll our eyes when we see the word Influencer but, like it or not, these are the people that are creating… Continue reading FOLLOWERS – found footage review         

Ill

It feels endlessly cowardly that after every mass shooting now the same excuse is pulled out for it - mental illness.  Mental illness has become a catch all bucket to throw all of our old fish in.  Man beats a woman, oh, well, he’s mentally ill.  Woman kills her kids, oh, she’s mentally ill.  Boy… Continue reading Ill

Enough

The day after another mass shooting in the United States means that we’ll have another week of news, another week of one side saying it’s too soon to demand change while the other side demands gun bans, and another week of asking HOW and WHY without even really trying to answer that very question. This… Continue reading Enough

FIRESTARTER (2022) – review

Firestarter is not one of the books most King readers point to as their favorite book of his. It’s also not one of the books that, upon mention, people moan over and gnash their teeth about. For me, I have always loved the book. Seen 100 yards away, it’s interesting that his early work featured… Continue reading FIRESTARTER (2022) – review

Lessons And Lesions

I have said it before, and I will say it again - Covid, among the many things it has been, has been a lesson that the U.S. and world should have been keen to learn but which we still seem unable to comprehend.  We are not ready for the worst.  At all.  In any way. … Continue reading Lessons And Lesions
