Green Onion Birthday Top 5

It is my birthday! And, apparently the world does not recognize it as a holiday… The family is off to school. I have to work. It is just another day. But, I decided to stop and celebrate with you. My real friends. My digital friends who I don’t have to meet in person, or get…

Sunday Mise en Place (Sept. 4 to 10, ‘017)

What a kerfuffle back to school week can be. But, we are through it, and slowly settling into routine. Time for another Mise en Place, where I can get myself organized for the week ahead. The M.e.P.- other than giving me the opportunity to sit and look at my schedule- is where I share what…

Deconstructed: Justice League of America #62

Justice League, Justice League, holy heck they have been promoting that film hard. What ever happened to letting films speak for themselves. I am excited to see the epic superhero team on the big screen. I do wish they took their time and released more movies leading up to this event. A Flash movie is…

Sunday Mise en Place (Aug. 28 to Sept. 3, ‘017)

Well, happy Sunday, happy September, and happy long weekend. Funny how labour day is one of the few holidays we share with our American neighbours, I suppose we all care about pregnant women. September is always a special month, it kicks off autumn, sends kids back to school, but most importantly, its my birth month!…

Deconstructed: Alf #23

The Deconstructed series has been all fun and games since I started writing it with this little post. Today, I would like to get more serious. I want to talk about a very powerful and influential issue that will forever hold a place in comic-nerd hearts. Totally just kidding, we’re doing Alf! Come with me…

Sunday Mise en Place (Aug. 14 to 20, ‘017)

Oh, the good ol’ Sunday Mise en Place. Over my writing career this has become home base for where I am headed, how life is going, and staying connected with my friends, followers, and even family. Looking ahead at my life, I couldn’t imagine not writing this weekly piece. The future can be so unpredictable….

Deconstructed: Uncanny X-Men #161

If there is any time more fitting for a good X-Men story, let me know. With last weekends horrible events in Charlottesville, VA, and hate, bigotry, and racism playing a major part in political discussions currently, some comfort can be found in the pages of the Uncanny X-Men. The main underline theme of Xavier’s School…

Sunday Mise en Place (Aug. 7 to 13, ‘017)

Happy Sunday, or at least as happy as it can be after yesterdays gut-wrenching display in Charlottesville, Virginia. That one hurt. More than locally, more than racially, that one hurt as a human collective. It can be a tough pill to swallow that we haven’t moved past such hate in the world. Any ways, despite…

Deconstructed: Plastic Man Vol.4 #1

Once again Plastic Man is making his return to mainstream DC comics. Despite having his own television series, and being a reoccurring member of the Justice League, ol’ Patrick ‘Eel’ O’Brian’s superhero career has fluctuated from nobody to notoriety countless times. Now, with comic guru, Jeff Lemire at the helm, Plastic Man is about to…

Sunday Mise en Place (July 31 to Aug. 6, ‘017)

For now, for today, it’s Mise en Place time! My weekly edition to the G.O.B. that goes over what’s new, what’s happening, everything you need to…

Zyler’s Birthday Top 5 at Age 7

Happy birthday to my little man, who is no longer so little. Going from 6 to 7 seems like such a big transition. It’s like he is no longer a small child, he can just be referred to as a child. Zyler woke up today to a new crystal lamp from Jenn, and a sick…
