25th January

I like to pride myself on being proactive… Both in my career and my life… however I have been anything but proactive when it comes to my blog.

I guess I get overwhelmed with how many thoughts I have in a day and instead of just focusing on ONE thought and blogging about it, I shut down.

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…

8th August

Ask anyone who knows me, and they will tell you that I am a bit of a recluse.

RANDOM THOUGHTS FROM THE ROAD

26th April

THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL ROAD TOUR

I am writing this blog from the back of a van… a van that has thus far traveled 7,000 miles in the last few weeks.

A van that smells of tears and sadness.  Tears, sadness, and corn nuts… let us not forget the corn nuts…

I am not sure what state we are in… It’s snowing outside, and it’s cold.  I am guessing we are in one of the Virginias, but that is just a guess…

1st April

For almost two months now… since the reveal of the first trailer, fans, critics, and friends have emailed me, and facebooked me…

“What is The Devil’s Carnival?” I’m confused… is it a movie? Is it a play? Is it concert?
