Consumed September 2016 – 30. September, 2016

September, you sucked giant donkey d**ks.


Yet somehow I was able to consume a metric ton of entertainment (probably because my computer died). This is what I shoved into my media gullet.

Rick & Morty – Season two was pretty good but couldn’t compare to season one. It’s near impossible to top the scenes that used DMX and Mazzy Star. Those moments made that season and won me over.


Casual – The further one gets from the pilot, the better the show gets… except for that season one closer. They ran over a huge, emotional decision and I’m not sure if I’ll jump back in for season two.


Doctor Who – [SPOILER WARNING] – I felt nothing when Clara died. Bring back Rose.




The IT Crowd – Caught the final episode. It was a nice bookend but I would have been happy without it.


Gotham – So I got to that part where the Original Poison Ivy jumps into the sewer and Busty, F**kable Poison Ivy emerges. I turned off the TV. Not sure I can go back to the series. Maybe if they squeeze her into a Power Girl suit.


Lucifer – Looking forward to more fun with these devils.


Brooklyn Nine-Nine – If they don’t get Jake and the Captain back to Brooklyn, I fear they have jumped the shark.


Flaked – Curious about white privilege? Catch some of this show.


The Jim Gaffigan Show – Lord help me but I’d go back to being Catholic for Ashley Williams’ smile.


Continuum – Am I going to finish the series because I once had a massive crush on Rachel Nichols?


Son of Zorn – Two episodes in and it’s fun. Favorite bit is each episode’s title card.


The Good Place – Heaven help me but I lurv Kristen Bell.


Bob’s Burgers

Justified – Approaching the end of season two and lordy this show is awesome.


Designated Survivor – Cool concept but I don’t know if I’ll stick around for the whole season.


The Hateful Eight – So it’s a Western Reservoir Dogs? Okay, not bad.


Creed – Exactly what I expected, exactly what I wanted. Bravo.


Amy – Did she always have a camera on her? Is this how it’s going to be for everyone going forward?


Hell or High Water – Maybe the best American film (about America) of the year.


La La Land – Yeah, I saw it. I can’t tell you about it but I saw it.


Reamde by Neal Stephenson – I now understand why someone told me this was “like 14 Die Hards” rolled into one book. Holy s**t, this was AWESOME!


Commonwealth by Ann Patchett – Maybe the best book I’ve read this year (but probably my second favorite).


NOS4A2 by Joe Hill – If you loved Locke & Key (and I did), then you’ll love this book.


Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff – savoring every word.

Midnight, Texas – Still reading my way through the pilot script.

Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Five
DC Comic’s Bombshells

Video Games
Doom – My mission: to brutally murder all monsters. Where do I sign up?


Here’s hoping October sucks less.


Over and out.

Consumed March 2016 – 31. March, 2016

As we bid “adios” to the moody month of March, I look back at all that I’ve consumed and realize that I need to hunker down and nail these goddamn scripts for fellowship season.

The time for naps is over!


Let’s get cracking’!

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
The X-Files – What the hell was going on with those last two episodes? Joel McHale, why?


The 100
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Bob’s Burgers
The Flash
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – Everyone finally kissed. Now things can get weird.


The Last Man on Earth
Daredevil – Only two episodes in and so far it’s better than last season.


Changing Light by Mirah – This will be the year of the goat.

Through The Looking Glass by Siouxsie & The Banshees – Trust that all you need is this song.

Strangers by RAC / Katie Herzig – In love with this song.

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff – Taking my time with this one.
This Census-Taker by China Mieville – A slight, forgettable book.


This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash – The best yarn I’ve read in a long time. Big props to the lovely woman that suggested this book to me.


Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Five
DC Comics: Bombshells
GI Joe: Cobra 2 – Why aren’t they making the Chuckles story into a Netflix series?


Star Wars
The PunisherGreg Rucka’s run kicks ass. Only thing I don’t like is seeing Morgan Freeman in this comic.


Video Games
Fallout 4 – I’ve limited myself to the workshop and helping my settlements when distressed. Otherwise, this game is boxed until June.


Black Ops 3 – But I did start playing this. Limiting myself to the Safe House until June.


Comic Conventions

I attended WonderCon and picked up a few goodies, like Faith #1 signed by Jody Houser.


The Man With No Name print by Claus (he did the end credits animation for Deadpool).


The Tinkers of the Wasteland Mutated Edition by Raul Trevino.


A couple of small prints by Raul Trevino.


A large print by Raul Trevino… yeah, I dig his art and really want to work with him in the future.


This Rick & Morty #11 comic signed by Pamela Ribon.


Check out the inside cover…


Specifically what Pamela wrote me…


Look closely at the parenthetical…


You do know the “Pamela Ribon / B.A. Baracus story,” right? Good. Then this update is DONE! Back to writing.

A Look Back at 2014 – 31. December, 2014

Was your 2014 a goddamn roller coaster ride? Mine was. There were lows, there were highs. One of which was finishing my third spec and making it to the Second Round of the Austin Film Festival Writers Conference (as well as making the semifinals of the Final Draft Big Break Contest).


For those keeping score, I’ve placed three times at Austin with specs for The Americans, Nikita, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. To me, that’s definitive proof that I can write. Television is a good arena for me. Now I need to level up… but that’s for my next post. Let’s get to the fun. Let’s get to my “Favorite _____ of the Year”. Ready? Let’s do this!

Favorite Movie of the Year – Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy was pure fun, an unexpected joy. With this movie Marvel proves they can do just about anything and we’ll go see it.


Here’s to many more years of fostering good will amongst the fans.

Favorite Line from a Movie This Year – Snowpiercer

Favorite Album of the Year – Year of the Caprese by Cherub


Cherub was my discovery of 2014, my favorite live act of SXSW and their album is equally awesome. Go. Pick. It. Up.

Favorite Book of the Year – Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki & His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami


I enjoyed the hell out of this book. Yes, I wanted to truncate the first third, loved the second third, and wanted to rewrite the final third but the language is so lush, so seductive, it’s irresistible.

Favorite Comic of the Year – Injustice: Gods Among Us

I’m not that familiar with the DCU — I grew up a Marvel kid — but the Injustice books are an awesome introduction to the characters.


Yes, it’s an alternate universe not beholden to company wide events but it’s such a great, heartfelt story that you won’t feel cheated. If you want to get into DC comics, this is the best introduction.

Favorite Game of the Year – Destiny


I know. Everyone hates the game. The acting is awful but it hooked me… for about 3 months straight, until the first DLC dropped. Plus we can thank them for this awesome music video.

Favorite Television Show of the Year – Hannibal

What ya cooking, Dr. Lecter?

What ya cooking, Dr. Lecter?

I loved the first season of Hannibal and I couldn’t fathom how the second season could get any better. But it did. It was freaking awesome. I’m very excited for the third season. But let me also say that over the Xmas break I discovered The 100.


How did I just discover this awesome show?

Favorite Animated Show of the Year – Rick and Morty


You must watch this phenomenal show. Need proof? The best thing about Rick and Morty is that it can have both DMX and Mazzy Star as part of their soundtrack.

And with that, I say adios to 2014.
