David, Thank You

My thoughts are small at this time, they certainly seem so in the wake of the loss on such a great scale. I have never known a man able to connect with experience so honestly, and I know I never shall again. He was a man of the time, greater than any time lord, more fragile than any child, stronger and broader than any foundation. Continue reading

A word about Robin Williams.

Let us not forget that for the genius he was, he also pushed people away. No one pulled the trigger; he was heard, but in the end he made the choice. We all have a list inside, and when we get to the end of it, is that last item enough to hang onto? Continue reading

Useful Misdirection(s)

NYTimes recently informed the world (not just New York, if you catch my drift) that employers are stymied by budget concerns and playing with prospective employees as though they were cat toys. Between hoops, unreasonable expectations and the perfect employee, they just aren’t hiring. Continue reading

Bothers and Brothers

Isn’t it annoying knowing you’re right and not being able to rationalize it? None of you know this but I’ve been keen to this activity in China for ten years, easily. How? How much time staying awake and aware does it take to figure out China is America’s oldest enemy? Look, I won’t be getting political, but we’re at the point of utter stupidity here. Continue reading

As Promised: It’s Story Time

If you waddle on over to Castle Ashlar you’ll be able to read the story I began writing as an energetic fan-tribute to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I started writing this during the middle of Season 2 and wanted to do something different.

You know… no relationshipping, no “one day I awoke and I was a pony”, or “what would happen if Derpy became a mane character”? Continue reading

Why Season 3 Never Happened

I said that, right? Here I am to back up that statement. Bronies take note. This is why you shouldn’t be holding Season 3 under a microscope. Continue reading

Quicknote: Can’t Reform Chaos

This is exactly the sort of mistake I was worried the writers were going to make without Lauren’s classic-minded guidance. My experience with her work is that she has a focus on strong character writing and sound psychological principles. Continue reading

MLP:FiM Season 3 – Quicknote

My nephew and I have decided that Season 3 hasn’t happened. That’s right. In ways I will not list at this time it lacks far too many qualities to carry on what Lauren Faust began.

Long live Seasons 1 and 2.

Yes Indeed, Ponyfeathers

As a character fan, I am a hard sell. Television as a whole does not gather my wool, so to speak. Those who watch Mythbusters unravel many of the worlds most entertaining physics events will relate to my point of view. Really, what else is there to watch besides reruns of our favorite shows? Anime is just too bloody morally doubtful to invest myself in any longer. Series that should have ended hundreds of episodes ago (Bleach) and/or weren’t dubbed very well (Naruto) no longer matter enough to hold the popular interest. Continue reading
