Last weekend, the Crystal Brush Awards were held at Adepticon. I certainly wasn’t in danger of winning them. And I’m probably not in danger of winning the new TMNT: Shadows of the Past Hobby Challenge that IDW Games has launched over on their website....

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is one of my favorite movies (I even don’t mind Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, to be honest). One of the concepts from the movie that has permeated into “everyday life” is the idea of the Golden Ticket. Well, Corvus Belli has grabbed their t...

It’s St. Patrick’s Day. I’m half-Irish, myself (my mother’s side of the family is Irish. My grandfather was an Irish-Catholic police sergeant in Chicago, because stereotypes come from somewhere. My grandmother was the first uniformed police woman in the city of Addison, IL.). ...

Man, no day has felt entirely “right” this week. Monday was an amalgam of Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Tuesday was like a Monday. Wednesday was kinda like a Friday. Yesterday was like a Saturday, but a lot busier. Today’s… still getting started, honestly. But it doesn’t...

We’re once more halfway through the week. So far, it’s been a pretty standard week. After the chaos of the week before, I’m not complaining about that at all. I’m also not complaining about the temperatures we’re supposed to get to today here in Atlanta. I might just ope...

At once, it feels both like, “wow. Already Wednesday?” and “wow. How is it only Wednesday?” Is it that way for anyone else or just me? I feel like I’ve gotten a lot done, but have a lot more waiting ahead of me. Ah well. We’ll make it. Break on through to the other...

While I certainly am a prolific writer (23,346 posts here on TGN at the time this one goes live), I’m certainly not much of a storyteller. Or, at the very least, I type up ~10 stories a day, but most are about 2 paragraphs lone. I’m the master of the short-subject, I guess. 😀 What [&helli...

We’re reaching the peak. After this, it’s a slide back down to the weekend. I’m hoping to have some friends over for gaming and cooking, as well as basically a “mini-Halloween” party (my apartment’s not really that big. Hard to have more than 4-5 people over 😛 ). T...
