Alive.. Not Dead…

I have been away for a long time now… Because of that, my Blog is beyond a mess inside and out. It seems that after New Years everything stopped, motivation kinda went out the window.. Not that I wanted to write and share my adventures.. Just when I sit down to write, I look blankly at the screen or become side tracked with something else.

There are also personal reasons why I’ve been away. One of them being the one year anniversary of my Father’s death… I know at some point I’ll dive into more details on everything at a later date.

So! What is missing so far this year? I glad you asked! I would love to show you want I’ve been slacking on hahaha:

Media coverage of Wizard World Portland 2017

Star Wars Book Challenge

Personal rants and raves

Website layout & new logos

Tech Reviews

New Podcast set up

Yeah…. There is a lot of work ahead of me on here. I might go back to basics and fix everything first. Aside from personal life, there is work life that is eating up a lot of time as well. By the time I finish with work, I really don’t want to do anything else hahaha. BUT! Now having said that, I figure I’d write to you all to let you all know I’m alive! I’m not DEAD! I know some of you sent messages saying “hello”, “how are you?” and or, “are you okay?”. I know I didn’t write back to some of you, I’m sorry about that. I haven’t been on social media much as of late..

At any rate, my goal is to get some writing done this week and weekend. I want to finish the website layout too this weekend!! God things are such a mess, it driving my O.C.D nuts!!

Sundowners Review.

Team Hellions

(A classic review from the now defunct Geeks Unleashed site.)

From Dark Horse Comics, Tim Seeley, Jim Terry, Sean Dove, Crank!

sundowners01

Sundowners is one of the best mind jobs I’ve had while reading comics in years.  The comic blurs fantasy and reality so well the reader will still be guessing on the final page.  The great thing is, the answer doesn’t really matter.  In the end an incredible tale was told no matter who may or may not be in their right mind.

Tim Seeley has always been a writer bursting with creative ideas.  Years later and there’s still no one who can touch Cassie Hack (Proud member of Allison Scagliotti for Cassie Hack movement here.)  Sundowners starts off with a super heroine enjoying the night air for all its darkness and wonders.  Then that is the last we see of The Pigeon for… quite awhile.  Its time to focus on the other heroes, where…

Is It This Difficult to Have Kids Read?

Team Hellions

No one reads enough. I don’t, most adults don’t, kids don’t. There’s just not enough time and too many responsibilities and distractions.

I’m all for tricking people to read. Putting the actor’s face on the mass market re release of the book that inspired the latest tv show or movie is a long used trick.

But this. This just seems sad.


This is more than an attractive cover. While the Robin Hood cover invokes Link and Mario the Treasure Island one is just a mess. It’s part Minecraft part Wolf/Doom.

It’s trickery but to what end? Both books are still a hard read for certain ages. Honestly a comic would be an easier adaptation for young readers.

Maybe it’s a life lesson. “Kids, this is what’s known as a bait and switch. Get used to it. It’s going to be a cause of pain in many forms for the rest…
