National Novel Writing Month

National Novel Writing Month

  If you’re not familiar with National Novel Writing Month (or Nano, Nanowrimo- take your pick), it is an event that runs every November. The goal is to write 50,000 in 30 days, or 1337 words per day. It’s a HUGE undertaking and I cannot count myself among the winners (yet). My best was 30,000 2 years ago (still a big deal in my neck of the woods). So, if you need me during November,…

Ixalan Release Draft

Ixalan Release Draft

Hey folks! So, Ixalan has been pretty exciting! The energy at the prereleases last weekend was so great! I even got talked into playing my first prerelease since Khans! I did not enjoy the 3 color decks in the Khans block, which is ironic because I ended up playing a red, white and green deck Saturday morning because I pulled a 3 color Dinosaur.   With that being said, Release weekend is upon us and…

I talk about this right now because Kevin Smith was recently on our streets and he is a great supporter of the Wayne Foundation, which helps raise awareness of child…

The Summer Movie Season is Over — Now What?

The Summer Movie Season is Over — Now What?

Summer used to be home to a large majority of big budget blockbusters — rife with action and special effects. That has become less and less true of late. We’re seeing more tent pole films showing up in the spring and on occasion during the fall and around the Christmas holidays. Still, with the summer behind us along with complaints that this year failed to meet expectations what do we have to look forward to?…
