I finally put up my SDCC '23 schedule.

Have I overextended myself?

All of my notifications on here have vanished, except the most recent one.

Just me? Just my ancient computer and OS and browser?

Here’s my favorite part.

McCarthy’s big crime according to Gaetz: passing a bill with Democratic votes.

Gaetz ouster of McCarthy: passed with 100% Democratic support.

I’m sorry but that is fucking funny.

Writing about mental illness, therapy, recovery, self-harm... putting my own life experience into it... and listening to the soundtrack for LEGION.

For a comic book. Which you'll get to read around October of 2024.

Phase one of starting a new comic series: rereading the pitch so I can remember what I sold them on.

As a lifelong student of World War Two history, with a particular interest in the atomic bomb program, I can tell you that next weekend I'm really looking forward to seeing Barbie.

Out of curiosity, I just clicked on a job posting for a ghost writing gig, and was amused to see it was a "faith based" company.

What's that thing about "thou shalt not bear false witness," again?

Hypocrisy is epidemic.

This brilliant scene/song was cut from 1776 before release by order of Richard Nixon. Easy to imagine why he hated it: it nails the modern GOP as the descendants of people who wanted to stay with the King. Luckily, it's been restored.

Apropos of nothing... here's a link to an essay I wrote about 25 moments from movies I can't stop thinking about.

I wrote it without naming the movies, partly to avoid spoilers. If you know, you know...

There was a pop song in the last couple of years that used the melody of Beethoven's 7th, and I can't for the life of me remember the band name/ title. Had lyrics, etc. But unmistakably used the melody.

Anyone?

That thing where you're working very hard and a long weekend comes up and you were working so hard you failed to plan anything for the weekend.

Of course, as a freelancer, I am allowed to just ignore weekends...

Here's an episode of PULP TODAY where I talk about (and read) my first writing job and my microscopic contribution to #StarWars lore.

Best part is the USS Enterprise screensaver in the BG.

2007. I had just made a movie with Nichelle, and we ran into each other on the picket lines.

I am bad with getting pictures, but luckily when you stand next to a legend, the Associated Press takes your snapshots for you.

End your week with a little sex and violence, Ed Noon style.

I have this podcast/video series where I read from, and talk about, some of my favorite books… including this early Ed Noon mystery by my father, author Michael Avallone.

For something I'm writing, I'm researching "radiation poisoning" and "Nevada" and that is one depressing set of Google results.

For Superman’s anniversary, an episode of PULP TODAY where I talk about Tom DeHaven’s excellent novel IT’S SUPERMAN!

Can a serious author write a serious novel about… Superman? Tom De Haven answers that question with a resounding, entertaining, delightful “yes!”

Two decades in the movie industry turned into a surprising second life as a happy, successful comic book writer. I spoke with David Avallone on the eve of Yet Another Launch for the Elvira series over at Dynamite.

April 15th! Los Angeles-area friends!

I'll be appearing/signing all day at We Can Be Heroes in Chatsworth, as part of the We Con Blockfest!

It was a lot of fun last year: vendors, food trucks, ACTUAL famous people to sign your stuff. Come on down and forget your taxes for a few hours...
