Dear Covid, How have you been? I know that it has been a few months and we got to know each other. I got to know your strengths. You are very easy to catch, many lives have been taken by you, and you cause so many symptoms of a cold or flu. The list keeps…

Enticing Moments

Three years ago, when I moved from NY to CA, I met the guys that make up Action Studios. Back then they were a rag tag group working out of their living room trying to build a company. Now, they still work out of their living room but they understand more of what they want…

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

“Wow, a mainstream super hero who looks like me.” That was my first thought when starting the video game “Spider-Man: Miles Morales”. Miles hails form the Bronx but in this story is coping with a move to Harlem after the death of his father. We find him still learning the way of the web from…

Not in Control

Do you find yourself, or have you ever found yourself, feeling incredibly disconnected and out of control with what’s going on around you that you think, “What am I even doing here?” 2020 has been many things, but forgiving isn’t one of them.

Are We All A**Holes?

You know what sucks? A few days ago I was hit with the idea that, to someone somewhere, I’m the bad guy. Somebody has, or will, see me as a negative force in their life. No matter what I try to do or say, I will be the antagonist to their hero journey. Admittedly, that…

Disappointment and Regret

To be honest, it’s hard not to feel as though disappointment and regret are one-in the same. Beginning to write this, I’m still not entirely sure I know where I’m going with this piece. In the end it might only be filled with disappointment and regret, and still somehow I think that’s the point. Disappointment…

Gray Beauty

It’s easy to feel inspired by color, it’s easy to feel some sense of emotion brought on by vibrancy. Most of the time in life, we tend to see things as one way or the other: black and white, good and bad, law and order. We learn early that there aren’t really shades to living.…

The Paradox of Experience: You’re Cancelled Bro!

When in real life we run into a Baron Geddon, we are no longer armed with any sense of experience to guide our current and present moment, because we canceled anyone able to inform us of the wisdom they have curated. We robbed ourselves the ability to grow better and stronger, and by that, we become tyrannical dictators of thought crimes. I mean, is it really a stretch to say that any wrong mistake will get you canceled will then lead to any wrong thought will also?
