Today’s consumers enjoy shopping small and supporting locally owned businesses. However, that doesn’t mean small business owners can sit by idly expecting customers to show up. If you want to compete with the convenience of mass produced goods, especially during the holiday season, your business needs to meet holiday shoppers’ expectations. Use this checklist to […]
This is a quick glance at a location that came to me this morning, something I might put to use in a story or game in the future. It’s deliberately scant, intended to spark more ideas and let me fill in the details later, without committing it too firmly to any one setting or story. […]
Welcome to Bellbrook, a sleepy town that will serve as the setting for a new weekly series from Legendary’s streaming service Alpha called Relics and Rarities. Oh, did we mention it’ll center around Dungeons & Dragons? Set in a world that True Blood, Marvel’s Daredevil actress Deborah Ann Woll created, Relics and Rarities will […]
For whatever reason, I have James Brown’s “Living in America” stuck in my head. Probably because America is the next Rome. Anyway…. The Romans occupied the island of Britain for a considerable stretch of time. To put it in perspective, the Roman controlled the island longer than America has been a thing. It was […]
Long-running male revue needs to desperately up its game plan… Maybe it’s just an off-season phenomenon. Perhaps it’s the temporary venue being utilized during their theater renovation. But more likely, being covered in dust has more to do with neglect than construction debris. Whatever the reason, Excalibur’s THUNDER FROM DOWN UNDER is a relic in […]
Roma and The Old Man & The Gun are completely brilliant. Mortal Engines, on the other hand…
“With each generation, the amount of environmental degradation increases, but each generation takes that amount as the norm.” ~ Peter H. Kahn and Batya Friedman When we think about losing biodiversity, we tend to think of the last northern white rhinos protected by armed guards, of polar bears on dwindling ice floes. Extinction is […]
Slay the Spire takes the concept of deckbuilding and roguelikes and elevates them to a new level with complex strategy and compelling gameplay.
History is precious. Humanity can use history and apply its lessons to today’s situations in order to build a potential for a better future and avoid the trappings and pratfalls that were experienced by our predecessors. Aside from the knowledge that is gained by preserving historical accounts and narratives, making contact with the relics and […]
The Eucharistic miracle of Blanot took place during the Easter Mass of 1331. During Communion, a Host fell to a cloth that was held below the communicant’s mouth. The priest tried to pick up the Holy Eucharist, but it was not possible. The Host had transformed into Blood, resulting in a stain the same size as the Host, […]
+Matthew 11:16-19 The Spirit of your Father will be speaking in you Jesus spoke to the crowds: ‘What description can I find for this generation? It is like children shouting to each other as they sit in the market place: “We played the pipes for you, and you wouldn’t dance; we sang dirges, and you […]

Synopsis: – Looking out the widow I see a UFO drop something and I see it run off somewhere. Then I look into the corridor and I see some bear things. I then go back to the window to see the world going into chaos with many of the bear things. This will be delivered […]
As we transition along into what I think could be a good bull phase over the next year or two, I’ll remain sensitive to who was appropriately cautious/bearish when called for along the way of the 4-7 year (depending on how you look at it) bear market and who displayed perma pom poms. Maybe it […]
Dark Energy Demon possession never happens instantly or without any warning, in the case of many horror films, possession will either happen through some kind smoke or a silhouette of the demon entering the host’s body. Since the possession of the main protagonist within my story happens through the means of an ancient relic, I […]
