15 Years.

Sometimes, a workweek can drag on forever.  By Friday, Tuesday seems like it was weeks ago.  Other times, you blink your eyes and wonder, “Man, when did it become May 2013?  Did I miss January through April?”  Today, it simultaneously feels like it’s been minutes, days, months, and years since May 17, 1998, the day […]

Good Bye & Good Riddance 2012

So here we are on New Years Eve 2012.  Generally on New Years Eve, I try to do a post that sums up my past year [2008, 2009, 2010, 2011].  For the last several weeks, I have been struggling with what I was going to say or do in that post commemorating the end of 2012.  At […]

San Diego Comic-Con 2012: Psych-o Thursday

Thursday, July 12, was the first “official” day of Comic-Con.  Jay & I headed to the Convention Center around 9am to walk around the Exhibit Hall floor.  We managed to pretty much stay away from the insanity of the middle section of it, where all the big studios set their booths up.  We did venture […]

Goodbye, 2011!

So here we are, at the end of 2011.  I cannot believe how quickly this year flew by.  Crap man.  I got married this year!  Damn. Anyway, keeping with my somewhat yearly tradition, here’s my “Year in Review” blog post, complete with links for your own entertainment.  I’m somewhat proud of myself that I blogged […]

Blast from the Past

So 2 things happened tonight.  The first one was I was going through iTunes and decided to play for Jay some clips of one of my very favorite podcasts of all time, “Chicken Fried Radio.”  They haven’t released a new episode in AGES and there’s been some casting changes, but this was one of my […]

#WeHaveToGoBack

Today, May 23, 2011, is the one year anniversary of the end of the TV show that changed my life: Lost.  Last year tonight, I saw in the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles, California with Jay, Jack, their family, our friends, and an auditorium filled with fellow Lost fans.  After years of interacting with many […]

Every entrance is an exit somewhere else.

On May 20, 2006, I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Communications (dual major in Journalism & Public Relations) from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY after having the best four years of my life.  I made so many lifelong friends and learned so much about life and myself.  I loved my four years at […]
