Same Old Lang Syne

Hello, pals and gals. Those of you who have been paying close attention to my social media or this site have already noticed some changes. This site has been dialed back to a more personal-profile scope. All of the creative works are now being tracked at my Behance site, I have also just started a new newsletter called Inconsequential Art that you can subscribe to if you want more or less weekly updates, plus the kind of stuff I used to post on social media.

I have some fun plans this year for publishing, but also for dipping my toe into making some music, recording some weird noises and dark comedy, creating a new card game, and more. I’m looking forward to it, and I feel that the changes I have been making will help me concentrate on creative side while also hopefully (finally) giving the promotional side its due.

So, this blog is being retired for now. I may start blogging again over at, just as a place to start film reviews again, but anything posted there will get pasted into the newsletter along with personal updates and creative updates. It’s free and you get a decent discount from my online store just for joining. I will never sell your info or send you crass marketing nonsense. I’ll just keep you in the loop and share some exclusive and/or process stuff. OK? OK.

Thanks for reading. And thanks for your patience as I figure this stuff out. Peace.

Work Cut Out

This week’s post title is a tip of the hat to my fellow bluenosers Sloan, who are just about to release their twelfth album. I have had the pleasure of seeing them probably half a dozen times over the last 25 years.

The title also applies well to my creative goals between now and the end of the summer. I just turned in my application for DCAF, which if accepted, would come to my third appearance of the spring and summer. I hope to have an assortment of new stuff for each of them, as you can see in this public post on my Patreon.

It’s a lot, but I am just going to put my head down and power through, work with as little stress as possible, finding the joy in creating something, especially something I don’t usually create.

The long weekend was pretty good, a bit busy but good. I took Jack to see a couple of movies (Pacific Rim and Ready Player One) and to the board game cafe again. He turns 16 next month. Oy.

I enjoyed both of the movies well enough, each is more or less a three star entertainment. I talk about both on the new episode of the podcast, as well as some of the worst movies I’ve ever seen.

That’s it for now. Have a great week.
