Farewell, Toys ‘R’ Us – We ‘R’ Sad

Posted by on March 15th, 2018, under NOTEBOOK, VIDEOTAPE

Today, Toys ‘R’ Us begins closing the doors on its stores, and with them, part of my childhood. There’s a vast universe of “My Kids Will Never Know” memes out there. This is really a timeless theme; generations always have and always will advance forward, turning the things of today into antiquated and unfamiliar footnotes […]

Super Mario Spoofs (11 Edgy Comics)

Posted by on March 2nd, 2018, under SNAPSHOTS

I grew up with video games. The fridge-sized quarter-gobblers as well as some of the really old consoles. But most importantly was when I begged my parents into caving for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Or maybe a lollipop that fell under the couch. It can come from rotting your brains on cartoons, shows, commercials and movies, or from […]

Things I Wish I Had As A Kid: Nerf Armory

Posted by on January 6th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK

Childhood is a time for dreams and imagination. For me, that included a heavy dose of lightsabers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles accessories and nerf weaponry. I’d battle my friends every day in various narratives and locations, dueling until the sun went down. But I never had something to house and organize all my cool gadgets. […]

BB-8 Takes Manhattan

Posted by on December 7th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

There’s nothing my nerd-heart loves more than seeing fantasy and fiction come to life in… real life. It’s what our imaginations were made for.
