2019-04-27T08:25:22-06:00

I woke up this morning and found myself 50 years old. It is a significant moment, a momentous occasion, a milestone worthy of celebration and revelry. Except that it isn’t. You see I don’t feel any different than I ever have. Oh sure I’m a bit rounder, significantly more grey, [...]

He Sees You When You’re Sleeping: Krampus the Anti-Claus

2018-12-18T17:30:25-06:00

We are all familiar with the benevolent nighttime intruder who once a year indulges in mass breaking and entering to deposit gifts under indoor foliage. You know, the omnipotent fat man dressed in red who observes your every waking and sleeping moment to determine if you are “bad” or “good” [...]

Blood Rush (A Short Story by Guest Author Tessa Lee Carr)

2018-10-15T14:59:48-06:00

We shared our first kiss under the cherry blossom tree. It was perfect, like a scene from the movies. I stared into her eyes and brushed her soft hair from her delicate face. I saw the blood rush to her cheeks and imagined what it would be like to feel [...]

Reckoning Upon God: Frankenstein (Monster Memories)

2018-10-15T14:39:02-06:00

Frankenstein is one of the few classic monster movies that I did not see on a Saturday afternoon on a UHF channel.  No, this film was played in prime time. It was a special movie-of-the-week. A  re-showing of a classic film on “regular” TV. It was a big deal. [...]
