WWE Royal Rumble Predictions!

After skipping the last few WWE events (and largely ignoring my website in general), I am back!  This weekend is the first WWE pay-per-view (if you still buy it that way) of 2016, the Royal Rumble!  The Royal Rumble was always one of my favorite events in wrestling, but after two straight lackluster Rumbles, there is a lot of pressure on the WWE to deliver a solid show on Sunday.  How will the Road to Wrestlemania begin?  Hit the jump to see my thoughts!

NOW WRITING...?: The Largest Heart - Prologue and Chapter 1 Excerpt

Over the last year, I'll admit that I had lost focus on a lot of creative endeavors.  While I did have a few exciting announcements and releases, 2015 wasn't the productive year that I had hoped.  However, I did start a few new projects that I hope to bring to fruition in 2016 (and beyond), as well as  few that I'm not so sure will go much further.

One such project is THE LARGEST HEART.  It began as comic book pitch that, unfortunately, failed to gain much traction.  I still loved the story though and in the fall of last year, I began work on transforming the graphic novel into a prose one.  I completed very rough versions of the prologue and chapter one, but then life got in the way and I shelved them.  

As a way of getting myself out there, I want to share the prologue and the first 75% of chapter one with you today.  I want to see what the reaction from my friends and fans is, which may dictate whether or not I press forward with this project in the coming year.  You can hit the jump to begin reading and you can email me your thoughts here.

TOP 10: The Films of 2015

Thanks to a really awesome promotion through my wife’s employer, I saw more movies in the theater in 2015 than I have in any other year.  In total, I hit the cinema 32 times over the last twelve months (though only 25 were new films, the rest being multiple viewings or re-releases).  Last year I only counted down my Top 10 films, but this year I thought it might be more fun to look at all 25 films that I saw in the theater in 2015.  Hit the jump to see what I thought of each film, counting down to my favorite movie of the year.
