The best blog from the best author you've never heard of. Assorted thoughts ranging from comic books to politics. Sometimes I even talk about writing.

I'm Baaaaaaack...Maybe

Been a while since I showed my face around here. And let’s not even talk about Facebook. At least I’ve made a few half assed Twitter posts…

So late last spring I moved—an all-around good thing for me. Except for what it did for my daily commute. Anyone who knows anything about the San Francisco bay area knows what a monumental pain in the ass I-880 is. For the rest of you, I suggest picturing your head stuck in a vice that slowly contracts over the course of an hour; then repeat that at the end of the work day. Six months later I’m still trying to figure out just the right way to budget my time. In the interim every pretense to social media participation that I had got shelved.

If only I had some really cool stuff to talk about tonight. Really this is a self-indulgent outing that I hope spurs me to keep posting. I’m chiming in while I watch X-Men: Days of Future Past, drink Bulleit Rye, and eat grilled cheese sandwiches. Yes, I am that disgusting tonight.

I'd defy you to tell me that's not an
awesome dinner...but then you
would do so.

And before foodies object: yes, there is much better quality cheese out there to make a grilled cheese with. But whatever crack is in Kraft singles is perfectly suited for the greasy, crispy grilled cheese of champions. And I defy you to prove me wrong.

I wish I had been keeping up with the blog when Days of Future Past came out. As a huge comic book nerd (and longtime X-Men obsessive), I could have written a dissertation comparing the movie to the source material. As it is now, I’ll just say it’s the best X-Men movie so far, and it’s incredibly loyal to the spirit of the original comic book story.
Epic storytelling before CGI, bitches.

The original idea behind this blog was to give readers a glimpse of me through my writing. I might tweak that formula going forward. We’ll see. I can say that writing continues. And continues. And continues.

Also, I hate proofreading.

I hope to resume my brilliance and self-importance in future. But for now, I’m going to turn up the volume on my movie, eat a dinner guaranteed to shorten my life, and refresh my beverage.
