You're Not Special!!!!!

It's finally here! My very first picture book is now available on Amazon
You're Not Special is a watercolor-illustrated picture book that talks directly to its readers, telling them that it's okay to be normal. Living in a post-millennial, everybody-gets-a-trophy world, I feel like this story is of vital importance to the next generation.
It's also pretty funny.

Friday the 13th

Okay. So it's Friday, but it's not quite the 13th anymore. Still, if you're in the mood for something spooky, check out my article spoofing the truly wonderful Friday the 13th sequels of the 80s and 90s. If you're not a horror fan, you might not get all the jokes, but give it a try anyway. It doesn't look like we're getting another Friday sequel for a long, long time, so a snarky online article is probably the next best thing.

Grandma Jokes

My second supremely tacky article for Ego Baby Magazine is out now! This one is called "My 102-Year-Old Grandma Is Really Good at Meditation." From the title, you can probably guess how this one ends. Check it out. It's pretty offensive! (But in a good way. At least that's what I tell myself.)

Cartoon Ghosts

EgoBaby Magazine is a very strange publication. It's a comedy site that focuses on spirituality and new age topics. It's also quite funny.

My first featured article is a supremely tacky and culturally insensitive look at Casper the Friendly Ghost. It's probably best if you don't read it. You will probably be offended. But if you do read it, don't say I didn't warn you!

My New Art Blog

For those who don't know, I also draw. A lot. So much, in fact, that I wanted to start a weekly art blog. Check it out HERE.

Christmas Movie Time!

'Tis the season to watch some brain-numbing holiday entertainment. Maybe some Home Alone. Perhaps something with the Muppets. Maybe one of those Rankin/Bass stop-motion numbers.

If you need some help, though, check out my list of the nine best holiday movies to watch with your family. You'll thank me in the morning.

Oh, Look! Dancing, Naked Monks!

A few weeks ago, I experienced the world famous Naked Monk Dance, which happens every year right in my valley. It's a truly one-of-a-kind festival. It's also pretty much exactly what you'd expect from the name.

Head on over to Indie Travel Podcast to check out my complete rundown of the experience, including tips and tricks to make your trip as fun as possible. (Spoiler alert: Do NOT take pictures.)

The Worst Werewolf Movies

Have you ever seen Joe Dante's The Howling? It's great, right?

Well, have you ever seen any of its sequels? They are not great. Trust me. From exploding dwarf eyeballs to spooky line-dancing, there's a whole bunch of terrible packed into that franchise. Don't trust me? Then check out my comprehensive guide to The Howling sequels.

Happy Death Day!

Another month, another horror movie review. This time, I saw the (quite good) horror-comedy  Happy Death Day. Anyone who has seen Groundhog Day (or, more accurately, The Deaths of Ian Stone) will notice a lot of familiar ideas told in surprising new ways.
After watching the film, I was honestly conflicted. And I think my mixed feelings come across in the review, which is a bit more soul-searchy than my usual. Check it out.
