So hey, the Colts got pwn’d by the Lions yesterday. Not shocking, considering that after Luck, they don’t have a viable option at QB, plus the starting center was out, and most of the backup O-line combinations were really rough together. On the plus side, the year the Colts won the Super Bowl, they… Continue reading Lions at Colts, 2017 Preseason Week 1
The embedder sucks on my page, sorry. Click HERE for the video. The ineffable folks at HISHE worked their magic on what is so far my favorite movie of 2017, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. No movie is bulletproof, and I suppose you can always find a hole in a plot. Still, none of… Continue reading Guardians Vol. 2 gets a HISHE

Obviously it’s been a huge literary success and a cultural bulldozer, and for good reason. I, like many people, resisted the craze for a number… Continue reading I once resisted reading Harry Potter, and I’m glad I changed my mind.
I was perusing old drawings in my folder and found this one from several years ago–maybe 2012, I unfortunately didn’t put a date on it–and realized I had forgotten about it. It was one of my first attempts at combing a few regular images I’d traced in CorelDRAW, which was the poor Canadian attempt at… Continue reading I promise there’s a good reason for this.
Sylvain Neuvel’s SLEEPING GIANTS is like the book version of a found-footage film, written almost entirely in dialogue, as though from transcripts of recorded interviews. My wife read the ebook and I listened to the audiobook; I frequently found myself wondering if I would have properly read the inflection and tone in print, given how… Continue reading Should-Reads: SLEEPING GIANTS by Sylvain Neuvel
