Glass & Sky: The Impermanence of Objects, 2nd Meditation

By | October 11th, 2017|0 Comments

Once, a long time ago, I stood in the sky far above the world. The observation deck of the World Trade Center was more than 1000 feet high. The windows were wide, floor to ceiling glass. The first thing I did was press my nose against it, my hands beside my face, fingers splayed wide. I looked down. Almost everyone [...]

Fruit Flavored Terror: Monster Memories

By | October 4th, 2017|0 Comments

As a kid I loved monsters. Not the ones that hid under the bed or lived in the closet obviously - those were terrifying and nightmare inducing if one actually managed to get to sleep - no, the ones I loved were the safe ones. Your Draculas and your Frankensteins* and your Wolf-Mans (Wolf-Men?), your Mummys, etc. You know [...]

Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Death Wish

By | October 4th, 2017|0 Comments

I suppose I should start this discussion with a confession: I think Q is the worst recurring character on Star Trek. I know there will be many in the Trek fandom that disagree with that opinion – some vehemently so. Q has become a fan favorite for many and John de Lancie’s hammy/camp performance much beloved. But for me [...]

Sand & Sea: The Impermanence of Objects, 1st Meditation

By | October 4th, 2017|0 Comments

Once, a long time ago, I lived in a house near the edge of the world. In the Winter, when the air was still, I would lie awake at night and listen to the Ocean, to the waves. Relentless. Never ending. In my mind I could see them. They would turn and curl and fall forward into the Land. Crushing [...]

Creature Double Feature: My Saturday Monster Time

By | October 2nd, 2017|0 Comments

Growing up my Saturday afternoons would be spent with creatures, monsters, ghosts, ghouls, murderers and mad scientists. Beginning around one o'clock I would settle down in front of our 17" Sony Trinatron (complete with simulated wood grain plastic sides) with a soda (typically Frank's grape or ginger ale) and a bowl of buttered macaroni noodles (couldn't get enough buttered macaroni for [...]

All Hallows’ Eve Month is Here! A Month of Classic Horror

By | October 1st, 2017|0 Comments

October has arrived - the most wonderful time of the year. There is a nip in the air, the leaves are changing and the smell of pumpkin pie surrounds us. It’s time to wear flannel as you walk a corn maze then curl up by a fire as the sun goes down early. A time to eat caramel apples, drink [...]

Star Trek: Discovery is Great – Too Bad I’ll Never See It Again

By | September 27th, 2017|0 Comments

Last Sunday something happened that I’ve been waiting for a long, long time. Star Trek returned to television for the first time in 12 years. Star Trek: Discovery premiered on CBS and to fans it was not only welcomed, it was praised. Because, you see, for the first time in - well it’s a matter of opinion depending on your [...]

Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Dreadnaught

By | September 26th, 2017|0 Comments

I find it interesting that the B'Elanna-centric episodes thus-far in the series have tended to have actress Roxanne Dawson act against either herself or an emotionless blank slate. I suppose one could argue that every time she has to interact with Harry Kim she has to deal with an emotionless blank slate - but seriously folks! In Faces she had [...]

The Lord of Light: Jack Kirby’s Concept Art for Argo

By | August 28th, 2017|0 Comments

This post was originally published on May 26, 2015  Remember that time Jack Kirby's art helped rescue six hostages in Iran? If you've seen the film Argo you should.  If you missed that part you can be forgiven, the details were a bit glossed over in the movie. If you weren't specifically looking for it it could have gone right [...]

The Missing Child

By | August 17th, 2017|0 Comments

I wake in darkness to find my child gone. The realization comes slowly. Half-awake I reach out a hand to the opposite side of the bed. Grasping, slowly at first then faster, palm flat and fingers spread wide I am feeling the bed expecting a form to be there in the darkness; disbelieving that it is not. In the distance [...]
