I had a thought recently that HEY, it'd be pretty fun to have some of my weirdo images on shirts and whatnot. Lucky for me the worm of consumerism has turned and like self publishing, there are sites that allow you to upload designs and they do the heavy lifting and you make a couple… Continue reading Merch, You Say?
As a child of the ‘80’s I think it’s easy to say that I am a child of the movies. From an early age I was watching them and grew up in an era when Disney had Sunday night movies on ABC, when a regional ABC affiliate showed Abbott and Costello films every Sunday morning,… Continue reading A Love Of Popcorn
It's hard to look at the news these days and not feel the cold of a shadow overtaking your heart. These are bleak times. But they are not end times. Not unless we allow them to be them. So. What do we do. We move forward. We survive. The thing is that sometimes that means… Continue reading Creation To Halt Destruction
Once upon a time I was cool. OK, that's a lie because I have never been cool. Ever. I shrug off coolness like a really frilly shawl on a hot day. I am just not made for cool.

With the group I work with here in Flint, the Flint Horror Collective, we create events through the year to bring a little weirdness and horror to the area. We have been doing our thing since 2011 and it's always fun to think of new events that we can do. For the past few years… Continue reading A Show For Ghouls
Around this time of year it's natural to look to the past, to assess the present, and to think about the future. It's natural and it's good. Good to remember where we were, where we are, and where we wanna be. Perspective. It's all about perspective. The trouble is when we stay too long in… Continue reading Thankful
When I was a kid I had a handful of things I wanted to do. I wanted to do the things that I thought would be fun and make my life happy. It doesn’t mean I COULD do those things, but I wanted to. The ceiling started pushing down on me though in 9th grade… Continue reading Through
