Coraline Through a Kid’s Eyes

When my daughter was about six, she already had a huge collection of Nightmare Before Christmas stuff.  The horror genes were there but not switched on yet. She rarely watched the film and got nervous when she did, “because stop motion is creepy.”  However, some cousins did not know this, and recommended if she liked Nightmare she’d like Coraline.

Back to the Cabin


I’ve finally upgraded my copy of the original Evil Dead to Blu-ray. That seemed like enough of an excuse to watch the entire franchise again...

Moffat, Gatiss and Dr… Acula


I think I'm even later to this party than the Witcher one.  Good thing they’re both excellent parties.

Let Me Tell You of the Days of High Adventure!

Conan the Barbarian is a character who works by nature of being incredibly straight forward, yet, amazingly, very few writers nail that simplicity correctly.

Teargeekers, Dad Edition Part 1

Way back when I did the first Teargeekers posts, I knew I missed some and planned a follow up.

As planning for this blog hovers around random at best…

Fast forward almost eight years to today for a highly delayed second volume.

You Can’t Go Away From Home Again


We took Anabelle for an info session and tour of RPI.  She's not really interested in a tech school anyway, and it doesn’t line up with any of her future goals. Still, it was cool to use it as a practice meeting and go back where I spent some formative years- making friendships, learning a career path, and swearing violently at take home vibrations exams.

Here’s the random list of stuff I noticed:

Transylvania 6-5000 “I Didn’t Know That”s


First, another apology. 

Unlike a majority of my posts, which are almost totally for only my family, this post is one hundred percent COMPLETELY for my family.

New Who Views: Doctor Who becomes Doctor WHY AREN'T YOU DOING ANYTHING???



I was ready to give this season a mostly positive review.  Ignoring the heavy handed and badly executed “Orphan 55” the episodes were ranging between “enjoyable and passable” and “Yay! It feels like the old show.”

Subliminal Film Crew: The Revenge


I wasn’t planning on writing other dream posts, but  I seem to have insulted someone.
Yes, I have apparently offended my Subconscious Set Designers.

Why I Should Never Keep a Dream Journal


My subconscious was, and remains, an extremely bizarre place to visit. I certainly wouldn’t want to live there.

Due to the nature of trying to cram in family, work, exercise, writing, and other hobbies, getting enough sleep for me is sporadic at best.

I know when I am getting enough, because then the memories of dreams cascade in.

Frankly, it may be better for everyone if I stopped sleeping all together.

Disney Planning 2019 Menu Interlude

For the first time in my Disney World planning posts, here are the jokes, gags, and pointless comments interspersed around the menu offerings I distribute to my family.

Since they change constantly, I'm sure most of you don't care, and its already far too long for one post, I replaced all the actual menu listings with the word "list" and only left in the "jokes" such as they are.

ta da!

Insert Moving Pun Here



Another year of the fantastic Danceworks Moving company has come and gone.  Once more Miss Chris has organized an outstanding group of performers through a veritable minefield of updates and changes to bring the joys of dance (and sing) to people who aren’t able to get out and view it on their own.
