I haven’t written about video games in a while. Probably because I’ve been playing video games. A lot. My experience with the Total War franchise goes back to Medieval: Total War back in 2003 or so. Huge fan. I’ve played all the main Total War games except the Shogun games. When I found out Games… Continue reading Total War: Warhammer III
I’ve been a Rocketbook user for a couple of years now. I bought the small notepad and the executive size notebook back in 2020, and have added a few more notebooks to my collection since. The notebooks have digitizable pages that you write on with erasable Pilot Frixion pens. The best part about them is… Continue reading Rocketbook AXIS!
Halloween is not a Pagan Holiday Saw a great article today about Halloween’s origins and whether it is a pagan holiday or not. The article is by Tim O’Neill over at History For Atheists. Here’s a link: https://historyforatheists.com/2021/10/is-halloween-pagan/ He goes into a lot more detail than I do in the blog posts I wrote back… Continue reading Halloween 2021 – Facts and Nonsense
This is one part writing exercise and one part self-administered therapy. My hope is not to offend anyone, but to shine a light on some of the stuff I experienced as an active church attendee, in hope that someone out there has had some similar experience an realizes they aren’t crazy. One of the many… Continue reading The Possession at Church Camp – Church Stories
I wrote my Easter Holiday articles several years ago with the intention of debunking the worst of the stupid myths around the holiday. I read through them recently and didn’t see anything that stood out as incorrect after several years of being fascinated with the subject. I do have a speculation on the word ‘Easter’… Continue reading Easter Holiday Origins – Geek of Faith Follow-up
I keep hearing on the various podcasts I listen to about complaints with recipe sites and how awful they are. This is a problem that needs to be solved. The issue is that if it’s a big site like Allrecipes, Epicurious or even a food manufacturer’s site like Pillsbury, the recipe is close to the… Continue reading Personal Recipe Blogs and their problems
I think I’ve written about this before. The idea that the more something gets demonized the more popular it becomes, and by extension the more profitable it becomes for the people who produce it. I’ve said repeatedly that if I ever buckle down and write a novel that I’d take five hundred copies and immediately… Continue reading Demonization is Profitable
Some years ago, between 2002 and 2008 an American corporation developed the most addictive substance that’s ever been spread to the masses. It had me going to get a fix daily, sometimes twice a day. The rush was exquisite. As if crack, heroin and cannabis had been mixed together in a delivery system that went… Continue reading The Most Addictive Thing Ever Made By Man
I don’t travel so much by plane anymore. I do have a few really long road trips planned, and since those will be largely from California to Texas, there’s some hotel stays involved. In my previous article I wrote about reducing the weight of stuff you’re carrying and trying to only take up one outlet… Continue reading Keeping Your Electronics Charged While Travelling- Product Updates for 2021
It’s the beginning of a new year, after a particularly crappy one for most people. For me, it wasn’t so bad, just stressful. I moved to Los Angeles late in 2019 to be with my now wife. Found a decent place to live that allows the animals we own. I tried to refrain from writing… Continue reading New Year 2021!
