The Arrival of Autumn

This post has nothing to do with the arrival of Autumn.  This post has nothing to do with arrival of a lady named Autumn, either.  Though it would be pretty awesome if a magnificent lady named Autumn appeared in a blinding light from the heavens above the city and simply said, "You're welcome".

This is my favorite time of year.  The days are a bit chillier, the nights even cooler, and an occasional rain descends upon us.  I don't know why, but drinking coffee on autumn mornings also brings forth a certain sense of joy not felt in the other times of the year.  Paradise...

I'm simply here today to provide some updates. 

The Dragon Princess, day by day, gains a little traction.  I was able to visit a morning show in Sacramento, called "Sac & Co.", to spend three minutes promoting the book.  The experience was new to me, but also a wonderful opportunity to promote the book and to promote myself.  Plus, I was able to see my dear friends Greg and Missi, who are always a good time.  I've also placed post cards around the city of Boise promoting the book.  These were made with the help of Carmen Galindo, for whom I'm always thankful for her helping hand.  As always, more info on the book can be found here: The Dragon Princess

As of yesterday, I will be writing/contributing one to two articles a week on the website  My first article will be appearing on Thursday, October 2nd.  I am very excited for this opportunity and hopefully it will help me continue to grow as a writer. 

Solace, my second full length play, is currently being looked at by a few theaters across this lovely nation of ours. 

Poison, my first full length, is in the process of minor re-writes, but I still continue to send it out to various theater companies.

I am nearly complete with my third play, The Latitude of Life, and hope to have an informal reading in a few weeks to hear it read out loud for the first time.  Pretty excited about this play so we'll see how much the reading brings me back to earth.

I have also started on a follow up to The Dragon Princess.  Currently I'm about 15,000 words into it so the workings of this novel are still very early.

Thanks to everyone for reading.  I'm now going to go enjoy my third cup of coffee today.  Be well.

The Bromance of Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard

In the late 1990's and early 2000's, there was no greater bromance than that between Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard. The two of them appeared in no less than five movies together in a five year time span. These two were meant to be. Two young stars destined to take the world by storm as a team. Hanging out, meeting women, and enjoying the good life. And then, just like that, stardom was ripped away from them. Though they continued to work, they would never appear together again in a film.
What was it that pulled them apart? Did they just choose to go different directions? Was it Sarah Michelle Gellar that drove a wedge between these two? While Lillard eventually went on to star in an Oscar nominated film (The Descendants), Prinze, Jr. went on to write for the WWE and occasionally show up as a guest star on television shows. While both have tried, neither has recaptured that joy that once displayed on screen. Tonight, I want to dutifully remind the world of t…

"Pissing our pants yet? Boy, do I have a feeling we're getting close."- Negan, The Walking Dead

And people thought Ramsay Bolton was sadistic.

The much anticipated season seven premiere of The Walking Dead hit the airwaves last Sunday. Boy, was it a doozy.
I am not going to spend much time on what side of the liked/didn't like it/I'm never watching again spectrum I fall in. I will say that I was enraptured, on the edge of my seat for nearly the entire one hour, six minutes (including commercials) of the episode. This was an episode that filled me with a sense of existential dread for the characters inhabiting The Walking Dead world. It is a feeling that is still with me nearly two days later.
As a disclaimer, I am only through the first ten volumes of the graphic novels. I have yet to reach the Negan arc. I am also on the side of the court that didn't m…

NFL Referees Fail Cam Newton, Fans

If the NFL is serious about the safety of players and finding ways to limit concussions, the referees in last night's Denver Broncos/Carolina Panthers game had a funny way of showing it.
Instead of talking about what a great rematch of the Super Bowl these two teams put on, much of the focus was placed on the amount of hits Cam Newton took to the helmet last night.
And rightfully so.
There were at least three occasions during the course of the game in which Newton was on the receiving end of helmet-to-helmet hits. 
These hits were not of the "blink and you miss it" variety of hits. They were in the course of game action, delivered to Newton after a throw or in the midst of being tackled.
The Broncos were flagged for this infraction once.
For a league that is looking to protect its players, especially quarterbacks, these calls were not simply "mistakes" or "errors" by the referees. And to right it off as such is simply another loosening thread o…
