21 movies this month, bringing the yearly total to 49. Assuming we don’t watch anything tonight, that is. It’s okay if I count Black Panther twice, right?
I’ve got another comic book movie review up on ComicBookMedia.com! This one is covering Whiteout, a pretty underwhelming adaptation of a pretty great indie comic series. It’s hard to find anyone saying anything positive about this flick, so I did try to be nice about my critiques. Still, though, this movie is rough.

The fantastic pop culture poetry site Barrelhouse was kind enough to post an essay of mine for their Valentines Day themed series “POP Love!” Given the prompt of celebrity crushes and that weird intersection between real love and fake people, my mind went back to high school and the Britney Spears shrine in my locker. … More An Introduction to Irony
I’m very happy and beyond honored that my story “2011 Cabernet” has been selected for the newest volume of Lilac City Fairy Tales.

I haven’t played video games since middle school, but I’ll be a guest on the excellent gaming live-stream show “Trav Verses” tonight at 7:30 PST. It probably won’t go well. Check it out! https://www.twitch.tv/events/4piPyIjCQ7uqKcGQBG-xBA
There was a day last week when I caught myself sending query letters, calling copyright holders, scheduling interviews and guest spots on podcasts, plotting out a new story, and checking in with a publisher.
