Posting Because I Haven’t Posted Lately

Hi all.  I've been so busy on other writing projects that I realized I've been neglecting my website like a delinquent parent.  The shame!  So naturally I decided to write this post so I don't fall behind in the massive clutter that is cyberspace. What has happened in my life?  Not much, just enduring the … Continue reading Posting Because I Haven’t Posted Lately

Life During COVID-19

My employer sells product to hospitals so I've still been able to work during this pandemic, which gives me an opportunity to get out of the house and traverse through my less peopled city.  It is strangely calming to see so much less activity despite the circumstances, and even though being out does increase my … Continue reading Life During COVID-19

Saul: Halfway Through Season 5

WARNING: SPOILERS So we are now halfway though season 5 of Better Call Saul, the penultimate season.

Fosse, Verdon, And The Seamy Side Of Show Biz

FX has been airing the limited series Fosse/Verdon.  Admittedly I miss out on a lot of television, but being a longtime fan of Bob Fosse I decided to make room to see this engaging series. The first episode starts with Bob Fosse looking at himself in the mirror, sporting a tuxedo, a cigarillo dangling from … Continue reading Fosse, Verdon, And The Seamy Side Of Show Biz

Shakespearean Porn Titles
