Extenuating Circumstances

Against my better judgment, I entered myself in NYC Midnight’s 2017 Flash Fiction Competition and was tasked with producing a story of no more than 1000 words in just under 48 hours. If that wasn’t enough, the story had to adhere to these guidelines:

Genre: Romance

Setting: Waiting Room

Object In Story: Banana Split

Romance is by far my least strongest suit, so the struggle was real. Ultimately, though, I came up with a piece that I’m pretty proud of called ‘Extenuating Circumstances’, which you can read here. Enjoy!

Back of the Envelope: The ‘S’ Stands for Sarcoma

Another edition of ‘Back of the Envelope’ for you guys! This time, I’ve been asked about one of my favorite subjects: Superman. Specifically on the reason he is not classified as a known carcinogen by the IARC. Take a look here!

In hindsight, I should've made that guy Jimmy Olsen.

Hot on the heels of the thrilling conclusion of Wake Me Up Before You Mogo, I’ve put out a fresh new installment of Back of the Envelope! This time, I’ve been asked how time travel works in The Terminator franchise. Although a better question would be ‘Who the hell greenlit Terminator: Genisys?’.

Check it out here.

Back in the saddle at the Wrong Reel podcast to talk about how you do a superhero versus movie the right way with what may be the most brilliant entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date: Captain America: Civil War.

Come listen to us wax poetic about Spider-Man, Black Panther and just how great of a movie this was, especially compared to… that other one.

JOIN OR DIE WITH CRAIG FERGUSON – Biggest Presidential Bad Boy

Another one of the animated shorts I wrote just aired on the History Channel’s Join Or Die with Craig Ferguson. This week we cover Andrew Jackson, who was deemed the “Biggest Presidential Bad Boy”. I would’ve gone with James Polk, but that’s just me. Check it out below.
