Confessions from a Cult Leader

14th October

 

 

I accidentally started a cult.

 

Or, should I say, cults… if you consider the fandom that surrounded The Devil’s Carnival and Repo!

But this time, I mean an actual – – cult…

Well, wait. Let’s rewind and put this in context.

Firstly, this is my blog.  I have been randomly, and not frequently updating it.  This is a home for my thought vomit.  What will follow are my ramblings.  This space helps me make sense on the senseless.  I keep this journal for myself, so in five years I can look back at moments that have moved me and try to better understand them.



A FATHER/SON ADVENTURE, and a few pulled teeth…

This past week, I jumped off a waterfall, swam in turquoise water, rode in a plane, helicopter, raft, and bus… I battled snakes, faced fears, got blackout drunk.  I hiked the Grand Canyon, rafted the Colorado, played football, beat the camp in horseshoes.  I slept outside for seven straight nights and removed sand from cracks in my body I didn’t know existed…  I was the hottest I have even been, and moments later, the coldest I have ever been. I thought I was going to die, almost did a couple of times, and had an infection so bad that I had to have a tooth removed…

My News Year’s resolution is to blog more… Not that any really cares what I have to say, but it’s cathartic…   I have grown tired of telling Ninja and Chance all of my innermost thoughts…

Truth be told, I am sure they have grown tired of hearing them.

8th August

Ask anyone who knows me, and they will tell you that I am a bit of a recluse. I am not a big partier, nor do I bask in the Hollywood scene… In fact, I am not sure I thrive in any scene… I am a hermit. I love my house and my creature comforts… I love waking up in my own bed, and making coffee in own kitchen… I love sitting out by the pool, or watching a movie in my man cave. I prefer spending time with my dog and my wife over most people.

For the last few years, I have literally built my Utopia so I never have to leave.  I even get panic attacks going to STARBUCKS so I have purchased every type of coffee maker imaginable.

I am socially awkward… I have … Read More »

25th July

Fans make the world go round…

For those of you who have been to Comic-Con, I need not tell you how exhausting and overwhelming the entire experience is.

 

It is a celebration of all things… well… cool.   Comic books, horror movies, big summer blockbusters, toys, and let us not forget scantily clad Princess Leias.
