In my restless dreams, I see that town. Silent Hill. We used to go there often. Well, I’m waiting for you there now. The Silent Hill series was a crazy important influence in my life. Actually, that’s an understatement. I first played Silent Hill 2 not long after my dad took me to a Robert McKee seminar […]Read More Shattered Restless Rooms: Remembering Silent Hill
I haven’t done an actual career-related update for a while, and with several recent and upcoming articles on Entropy that I’m immoderately proud of, I figured, oh, what the hell. For writing! Entropy is “A new website featuring literary and related non-literary content.” It’s been going strong for, oh, three weeks now, and I couldn’t be […]Read More On Games and Gaminess
Elves aren’t the only small, humanoid creatures that are all a-bustle this holiday season. Yours truly (more hobbit than elf, to be honest) has also been a busy bee-ver (a strange concept for a hybrid animal, but I don’t really give a dam).

It’s a bit of a review, a bit […]Read More Giants Prehistoric and Postmodern, Killer Gramophones, and cetera

Make a stir fry, take it on a picnic…to MARS, throw it at a dragon, board a riverboat, watch the boat sink, go a little crazy, eat your vegetables. Geek Haven: Balanced Diets, Sinking Ships and New FrontiersRead More Vacation Advice
They come in peace. Anybody who knows diddly-squat about aliens knows this, as sure as haloperidol prevents demonic possession. What most people don’t know is that aliens, well, they’ll come in just about anything. When E.T. wanted so badly to call “home,” he was really using the galactic equivalent of a phone sex hotline. “To Serve […]Read More An Extraterrestrial Orgy in L.A.
Don’t call me no Punxsutawney Phil, but I just poked my head out of a hole in the ground and asked the question, “Is it spring already?” Then I covered my whiskery face with my tiny little marmot paws in shame. No, I ain’t no whistle-pig, and no, it isn’t technically “astronomical spring” for another […]Read More Out of Hiding, [out of nothing]
What a week! It started out on a high note with Boss Monster: A Not So Old School Review.
