There was no blog on Tuesday because I arrived home too late after seeing Heilung in concert, two hours away from where I live. Not only was it the middle of the night, but I was exhausted both from the lengthy drive and the intensity of the emotions I was feeling from the performance. Two … Continue reading “Heilung”

Lying To Those In Mourning

By Mookie | April 11, 2024 | 0 Comments

Fuck mediums. I think these people are the scum of the earth. Before I go any further with this nuanced and emotionally-even blog post I want to extend the olive branch to energy workers/healers. I have friends who make an honest living doing energy work and have many friends and family who have benefited from … Continue reading “Lying To Those In Mourning”

Totality Cool Dad

By Mookie | April 9, 2024 | 0 Comments

The solar eclipse yesterday was really cool for a lot of reasons, but my reason was that I got to be the coolest dad at my son’s elementary school. It wasn’t in any official capacity. The eclipse would be happening for us in the northeastern U.S. around the time my son would be getting out … Continue reading “Totality Cool Dad”

Nostalgia 97

By Mookie | April 4, 2024 | 0 Comments

X-Men ’97 is so freaking good. I especially enjoy it because it hits a special kind of nostalgia for me. I don’t enjoy it because it reminds me that I used to occasionally watch the original animated series in the 90s, but rather that it’s helping me remember that wondrous time in my youth where … Continue reading “Nostalgia 97”

A Marathon of Meaningful Conversations

Anime Boston was exhausting and beautiful at once. The marathon hours of Friday and Saturday were an immense strain on my energy, but I put my whole self out there for everyone and anyone who came to my table. By Sunday I was thankful for the shorter hours of operation because I was running on … Continue reading “A Marathon of Meaningful Conversations”

Anime Boston weekend!

By Mookie | March 28, 2024 | 0 Comments

I don’t do as many conventions as I used to. I’m not as young as I used to be, travel and hotels are phenomenally more expensive than ever, and my time away from home can’t be lengthy now that I’m a dad. But there are still a handful of shows that I make certain to … Continue reading “Anime Boston weekend!”

We Call It Getting Scamp’d

By Mookie | March 21, 2024 | 0 Comments

My wife and I suffer from a terrible condition. At any given moment we will find ourselves incapacitated, unable to move, unable to perform or complete the most basic of tasks because we no longer have control of our bodies. The cause of this condition is not a disease or a mental illness… but our … Continue reading “We Call It Getting Scamp’d”

I am very pleased to announce that the Kickstarter campaign to print DREAMER, the fourth and final book of Snout’s search for the legacy of Dominic Deegan, reached its funding goal over the weekend! I’ve mentioned this before but I’ll say it again: this campaign had me extra nervous, both because of how strange and … Continue reading “A Fully Funded Kickstarter!”

The Kickstarter campaign to print DREAMER, the fourth and final book of Snout’s dreamquest, is going great! As of this writing it is 87% funded with just under two weeks remaining! The momentum has been solid and I remain optimistic! But there’s always a battle to be fought against crowdfunding discouragement, even when things are … Continue reading “Kickstarter Success and Discouragement”
