So as of yesterday, my SCH weapon is completed, which of course is always then, I wrapped the Caster gear as well, this was more a by-product of time spent vs an actual need for it. It is kinda pretty though! Gear that glows? Ah come on you can’t go wrong! It’s something we haven’t […]

One of the great things that happens when a SF/F classic is adapted to the big or small screens is that there is a renewed interest in their works. Sales of JRR Tolkien’s Middle Earth stories skyrocketed when Peter Jackson finally brought The Lord of the Rings to cinemas, a book a lot of folks […]

 Hello! Happy weekend. This month has been pretty eventful for me. I managed to take small pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina last week. It was a wonderful event in my life although I caught flu when I was there haha. I’m still recovering now and what’s the best thing to do while recovering? Blogging of […]

Gyllenhaal Gyllenhaal and more GYLLENHAAL!! I honestly got a bit sceptic over his involvement in this movie because I thought it would be another “one man focus – movie” with Gyllenhaal being the only focus. Well, ladies and gentlemen … I couldn’t have been so wrong. Every actor in this movie carried their own weight, […]

Recovery With a Capital G.

First memories I’ll never forget seeing my mother in the hospital bed. I was sitting on a stool. Looking down on the bed, the white sheets blinding from the sunlight coming through the sliding doors. I was two and a half years old. One of my first memories as a child was of the one […]

She used to live in my heart’s dungeon as a fountain of youth. Giving life to everything that laid dead inside, taking off humongous weight off my shoulders. She planted pretty flowers within and tended to them as though it were her own garden. I had beautiful dreams of a future with her, her, my […]

  I’ve spent most of my life in the sports world. I ice skated, skied, and swam as a kid. I was a sports reporter for about 15 years. For the past four decades, I’ve officiated amateur sports: mostly football and baseball, but I’ve called basketball, ice hockey, and soccer games, as well. So, I […]

Two days ago Ian Mendes said something that I’ve been saying about the local press since I started blogging, “As a broadcasting partner, we’re doing them a disservice by enabling them” (in the thread a fan said Mendes told him off for echoing this two years ago, but even if it took Ian a long […]

It has truly been the weirdest of awards seasons. After a year of snubs, surprises, idiotic executive committee changes and reversals, and even more surprises along the way, the Oscars are finally upon us. It is truly the most wide open field I’ve ever seen, with a huge spread of awards in the multiple categories […]

I thought I’d post another one from my last book, The Shadow Cabinet, on the basis that I wanted to talk about another of its influences.  So, here we have “Dull Eyes”, followed by the notes I wrote about it for the appendix, followed by a clip that I think must have inspired it.  The […]

“Our tour of the royal palace in Madrid was fun. Unfortunately, we were not able to take pictures of the interior. There are some pictures of the exterior though. Other than the royal palace we visited an ancient Egyptian temple which was also really cool. It was a great day! I also have a lot […]

There's Gotta Be a Song

Forbes, that source for business information, reported, earlier this month, “Musicals Make More Money on the Road than on Broadway” and that would certainly seem to be good news. Some days later came the not-so-good news that last year’s Tony-winning musical, The Band’s Visit, has posted its closing notice. The Forbes story had already troubled […]
