Welcome.

Thanks for coming. 

About the site

 

As you noticed, the Home page is made up of a series of tiles. Hover over the tile, the title of that tile appears. Click on it, and off you go. The usual suspects are there—the About page, Contact page, there will (eventually) be a shop—but the main feature of the website is the blogs.

There are fresh postings on the 7th, 14th, 21st, or 28th of every month in any one of the seven blogs. You could even make a bet with yourself and wager which blog you think will have that day’s post. Then, if you win, you can, I don’t know, take off work early. If you lose, put $5 in a vacation fund. Just a thought.  There may be posts on other days, but you can always count on the 7s to have something new.

Oh and if a popup happens, do me a favor and fill it out? Or drop me an email with your name and addy in it. From time to time, I’ll send out freebies or drop a coupon to the store, or just give you a personal note. I’d like to do things around here that, occasionally, surprise you. In a good way. And it goes without saying that your email and info stays right here and will not be used for nefarious purposes.

Now, let’s get to it.

The 7 Blogs

Anime-hem!

For 16 years, I was surrounded by big boobs, cuddly creatures, nasty trolls, evil kings, handsome heroes, and various monsters. And that’s just the people I worked with. Stories of a life in anime, a blog for fans and gaijin alike. (If you don’t know what gaijin is, that means you  probably are one. It’s okay. I was too at one time.)

'Nuff Said

Essays about life. And livin’ it. It’s not the definitive guide. But it’s pretty darn close. ‘Nuff said.

1/1

A few years ago, the artist part of me wanted to do things with my hands (not what you’re thinking). So I started making, for lack of a more apropos term, greeting cards. Each card is its own series and there’s only one in that series. It’s 1/1, or one of one, like the hatch mark on pieces of art. I’m not saying these are that, but I think they’re artistic. Sometimes they’re for sale in the store. So if you see one you like, you can get it.

Sirens

In Greek mythology, sirens were dangerous. I think it’s more dangerous not to listen when women are talking. This is a blog about women with something to say, women I think you’ll be made better by knowing.

Songcatcher

What’s Joan Cusack’s line in Working Girl? Just because I dance around in my underwear doesn’t make me Madonna. Well not all these songs will get you dancing, but they will move you. Think of this as my own personal Rolling Stone

Storyville

If you like fiction, this is the place for you. Here are short stories I’ve written (though some push that whole “short” concept a little bit).

Vice Vs.

When an essay, as story, or a piece of art can’t convey what I’m trying to say, I turn to verse. I can’t call these poems because I don’t consider myself a poet. But that doesn’t mean these verses can’t have a little poetry in them.

 

And that’s it for the blogs.

Here’s where the other tiles take you.

 

STV

STV. Stee-vee. Get it? Yeah, I know. If you’re looking for moving pictures, look here.

Wavelength

This is reserved for audio clips. Maybe a radio spot I’ve done, a talk, rants. I don’t know yet. But when I feel like talking, I’ll say it here.

Arcade

This area will be where I try things out. A script I’m working on, a video idea, whatever. If you’ve got some thoughts about it, make a comment or just email me privately, either way is fine with me. It’s a shooting gallery. I’m just seeing what hits the sweet spot.

The Candy Store

I make stuff. You can buy stuff. (I have to justify this little exercise somehow or my accountant’s gonna kill me.)

Freshest Post

Hover over this tile and you’ll be shown where the latest post is. Then just click and you’re there.

Booking

If you want me, here’s where you can find me. I’ll list my whereabouts when I’m there. Book me if you like.

 
 
 

That’s it. Now get going.
