According to this report from MiceChat, a very reputable source for all things Disney News, there are some major changes taking place at DisneyLand Resort / Disney California Adventure Park.

So history has a habit of repeating itself – only more so. Just last year, Maddie and I were writing about the Hugo Awards – sci-fi’s most prestigious competition – and how they’d been hijacked by a cynical voting clique known as the ‘Puppies.’ The ‘Puppies’ decided that the Hugo Awards were too politically correct […]

For the past few days I’ve been in a sort of trance. I found out the news of Prince’s death while I was sitting in a board room on a business trip in NJ and I just shouted out right in the middle of a presentation, “Prince died!” I honestly don’t know what my clients […]

Following off the heels of Star Wars’ ‘May the Fourth’ and ‘October 21st’ for the Back to The Future films, Fox is pushing to make this a new event. In case you did not get the connection, the 4/26 date is reference to the Alien planet being called LV-426 in the James Cameron sequel, Aliens. […]

A RANT About How Book Ratings Work

Let’s set a baseline for book reviews. As a self-published author on Amazon, I’ve had my share of bad reviews. Sometimes, there are elements to a book that need work. Sometimes I just got lazy with editing. Other times, it’s just a flawed book. But recently, a lot of indie writers I know have complained about the […]
