Thirty-Six

13,149. That’s the number of days I have been living and breathing on this world thus far. In years, that number is 36. Happy birthday to me. I recently saw a tweet from someone announcing they had reached their 15,000th day…

4K UHD Collection: April 2020

I am back in the collecting game. After several months of work and keeping an eye on deals, I am now inching closer toward 100 titles and have built a pretty nice 4K UHD collection. It started with my first DVD…

It’s that time of the year again. A new TV season is upon us. With some shows beginning to air this week, I thought it best to post my “to watch” schedule for the fall. Unlike last year, I…

The mid-year slump hit hard this year. I’m rarely a prolific writer or blogger during the summer. Perhaps it’s the heat down here in south Alabama. It makes you want to sit under the shade of an old…

PRINCE Raoden of Arelon awoke early that morning, completely unaware that he had been damned for all eternity. What a way to start a novel. As a reader, I don’t think about the first words of a book when…
