You can tell that we have all been feeling a little bit of claustrophobia and cabin fever after Covid. Humans are social creatures, after all, and when we’re told we can’t do something, especially something like seeing other people, we tend to get a little intense. As social creatures, we need one another, and while… Continue reading We Gotta Get Outta This Place
Anyone that has read my blog for any length of time - anyone? Anyone? - will know that I come back to topics from time to time that feel important to get some attention. Somet things, as they say, are worth repeating. Recognition is great. It’s needed. It’s necessary. We need to know what we… Continue reading Out of Sight
I tend to wonder anymore if we remember what it was like to fall in love with the things we love. In our rush to have everything at our fingertips at all times I think that convenience has made us lazy in how we consume the things we get an itch to hear, read, or… Continue reading Do You Remember Falling In Love?
Are you like me and are tired, tired, tired of creatives pretending to be better than the projects they are involved in. These are folks who are hired guns and work on projects for a paycheck, whether as a creator or part of the support.Actors. Directors. Writers. Musicians. Whatever. Every project that isn’t creator made… Continue reading You May Just Fall Off That High Horse
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
There are topics that I come to time and again because I feel like we need to hear some things more than once. We need that sort of a mantra that keeps us going. That ‘I Think I Can, I Think I Can, I Think I Can’ sort of thing that fuels us through… Continue reading The Fires That Drive Us
As I have mentioned here, either a blog or a podcast, everyone’s a critic. Literally and figuratively. We are all critical in what we consume, be it food, art, music, movies, television, news, or whatever else you want to list out. We develop our tastes over time, influenced by what moves us and by what… Continue reading A Critical Darling – blog
In which I talk about some odds and some ends - an honor, what I am watching, what I am listening to, and the usual stuff and such.
There is something strange and sacred about the summers of our youth. They stand as the first deep breaths of freedom that we get as we grow and the memories we find there are always there, waiting to be rediscovered once the days get long and the air cools once the clock hits one in… Continue reading Those Long Summer Nights
It feels strange that for the many, many years I have been writing and writing blogs that I rarely talk about music and its influence on my life. It’s not that music isn’t a constant in my life, a constant in my head, but that I feel like an imposter talking about music. I… Continue reading To The Beat Of A Drum
In which I tell two odd tales from my youth.
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
In which I talk about the artists and creators working in the darkness of obscurity.
