‘Creativity in Action’ Articles

I write, therefore I will write about writing. Or comic books, movies, cartoons, the writing of others, or any other form of BAM!…creation.

The Horrific (Horror Fic?) Secret Project Revealed!

The Horrific (Horror Fic?) Secret Project Revealed!

I love reading Horror, yet I never took a stab at writing Horror, until recently. Part of the reason is because, though I love to read it, a good horror story idea had never lept into my brain. Until recently. Then it happened twice. (If this were a horror movie, that realization would have sounded [Continue]

How to Have Creative Intercourse

How to Have Creative Intercourse

How to begin creatively? Hm. The direct question approach? “Are you creative?” Nah. Too infomercial. The smug, know-it-all way? “The only creative thing about creativity is the definition by those who don’t have it of those who do.” Blech. Creative beginning, creative beginning… Creativity is like masturbation. Everyone does it, few harness it, and fewer [Continue]

Shooting From the Hip

Shooting From the Hip

“The revolver rules, the revolver is triumphant.” -Walt Whitman quotes Six bullets can change the world. Red Dead Redemption and my current research into the Civil War have proven that to me. Both the Old West or the Civil War were ruled by the six-shot revolver. With that as an inspiration, and the understanding that some [Continue]

All For Blog, and Blog For All!

This Friday will mark the three month anniversary of this website. Remember when three month anniversaries meant something? In Junior High School—heck, Senior High for me—having a little lady put up with me for three months was huge. Huge enough to warrant the movie out, mushy card, single rose and dinner at Friendly’s level of [Continue]

Mr. Media Chastity Belt vs. Hollywood

The heat wave brought revelations. Roger Ebert boldly declared that video games “could never be art” which created a great digital fracas. M. Night Shyamalon defended his underwhelming and frustrating interpretation of Avatar: The Last Airbender as “an art form…a sacred process.” Ken Levine, Big Daddy if Irrational Games, penned a rousing epistle to the [Continue]

The Free Fuel of Will

The Free Fuel of Will

The world was different once. Dragons soared in the skies and aided the kingdom of man.

That age [Continue]

This is Chuck Wendig (Sort of). Chuck writes about beards (Sometimes). Chuck also tracks the strange search engine terms which lead readers to his site.

New Mutants, Old Friends

New Mutants, Old Friends

As seen on the big screen, the X-Men save the world from vicious villains, bloodthirsty bigots and evil mutants galore. But they live at a school. Huh? Like most kids, school was the largest part of my life, and I cared about the idea of a super-school. So too, it turns out, did Chris Claremont, [Continue]

Iron Man 2: The good, the bad & the ugly side of genius

Iron Man 2: The good, the bad & the ugly side of genius

The tin man needed a heart. Remember that.  It is the day after I saw Iron Man 2, with my mother and wife, as I type these words. Sometimes it takes that long for complex concepts to gel in my head. Iron Man 2’s portrayal of Tony Stark is one of those complexities, for Stark [Continue]
