Prince

Gallusville

Imagine you’re driving on a road trip and your car breaks down in a weird little Midwestern town. The mechanic says it’s going to be a couple of days, so you get a motel room. At dawn, you get woken up by screaming. You rush outside. On a park bench near the sidewalk is a…

How to Write a Surgeon

Finally we’re to the fun part. Not that writing and editing and all of that isn’t fun. Geez, how could I survive as a writer if it wasn’t? But this is the definitely the part I’ve been waiting for: getting to share what I wrote with all of you. And here it is at last:…

Mr. Robot

Speculation about Mr. Robot

Yes, yes, I’ll get back to old romance novel recaps eventually. Promise. ANYWAY. I’m a huge fan of Rami Malek and have been for about ten years now, when Night at the Museum came out and I got my first glimpse of those impossibly huge blue eyes. For years, I’ve tried to convince everyone around…

Jamaican Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) volunteers, 1943.

Link Roundup

I’m heading out of town tomorrow morning to visit family and go to my brother’s college graduation. Exciting! My recaps of A Pirate’s Love should continue through the visit, though I’m a little iffy about next Wednesday since I’ll be on my way back then. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to write the recap for…

In which a Muppet otter gives me bad advice

Lots of people find their own dreams endlessly fascinating and want to share them, much to the eye-rolling irritation of the people around them. Usually when someone tells you about their dreams it’ll be something like “I was in this place that’s part of my ordinary life, but there was something non-ordinary about it!” And…

I woke up angry at Spider-Man.

It wasn’t some sort of geek rage over him finally joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe and pushing back the release dates of Thor 3 and Black Panther. It wasn’t about the character getting recast. No, this was at the character himself. Last night I had a dream that Spidey called me up and asked me…

Sleepy Hollow S2E16: Down the Hole

This episode only has a teeny little smidgen of Katrina in it and therefore is very good indeed. We open with a crew of three men entering sewer tunnels in Sleepy Hollow. One of them–who later gets identified as Daniel so I’m just going to use his name rather than “goatee guy” as I called…

I really can’t justify this

I can try to come up with some sort of excuse, but none of them are any good. Basically, from the moment Thor confused “hacking” with “slash” in Loki: Agent of Asgard #1, I’ve been making myself laugh imagining what kind of slash Loki would write. (Obviously, he’s an IronHulk shipper.) Also, if you haven’t…
