Pumpkin carving 2019

pumpkins-2019.jpgFor a couple of days now, all Monki has wanted was to get and carve a pumpkin. Okay, to be fair, she wanted to go to a pumpkin patch and get a pumpkin and she wanted to dress up like a puppy dog, while I dressed like a pirate and Rasa was a fairy. Continue reading

Comic Con Baltics 2019

Comic_Con_Baltics19.pngSeptember 21-22, 2019, the dates of this year’s Comic Con Baltics, had been on my calendar since probably sometime in April, when I had been invited to come and meet the organizers to talk about the project which would become Generation Geek.

As time went by, several Generation Geek videos were released and I was asked if I would participate in the con itself. Naturally, I agreed. Of course, I didn’t know what I was agreeing to, but sure, I’m game for anything. Continue reading

It’s OK – Yehuda Devir Speaks My Thoughts

038e10_090dc8da866143388853acff18b60c56~mv2It’s OK
It’s okay when she cries in your hands
It’s okay that she only wants her mom
It’s okay that you can’t put her to sleep
It’s okay that you still don’t understand your status
It’s okay that you don’t have that connection, that everybody is talking about
It’s okay that you still don’t understand your job definition
It’s okay that you don’t make her laugh It’s okay that you’re tired
It’s okay that you’re angry
It’s okay that things don’t work out for you
It’s okay to ask for a hug
It’s okay to share your partner with everything you go through, even if it doesn’t seem so manly
It’s okay that your life has changed
It’s okay that your plans have been canceled
It’s okay that you have no time for anything
It’s okay to feel weak
It’s okay to be moody
It’s okay to feel lonely
It’s okay to ask for help
It’s OK
Yehuda Devir, One of Those Days

REVISITING CLASSIC COMIC BOOK ADVERTS (PART TWO)

gr cover - CopyAs a Ghost Rider fan, this is perfect!

As we discussed in Part One of “Revisiting Classic Comic Book Adverts” , comic books in the 1970’s and early 1980’s were an immense treasure trove of some of the greatest advertisements ever conceived by men. Men who were obviously on drugs. The ads in the middle of comic books were often times more entertaining than the actual story. Take for example, some of the ads in my copy of Ghost Rider #12 from June 1975.

Ghost Rider is a paranormal super anti-hero from the Marvel Universe who is an indestructible spirit of vengeance. He literally received his powers from the friggin’ Devil and then decided that being Satan’s errand boy sucked (no matter how many Mettalica records Lucifer bought for him). Ghost Rider’s pre-demonic possession identity; stunt motorcycle pretty boy Johnny Blaze reneged on the deal and turned to righting wrongs instead of ferrying souls off to Hell…

Adventure Weekend

P8240021.jpgSchool starts next week. For me. For Monki, it starts the week after. Yup! She’s not only enrolled in kindergarten/preschool, but she also starts ballet classes on Monday the second of September. Now, those events will probably warrant a post of their own, but in the meantime, this is my last weekend before the semester starts and I have to knuckle down and get stuff done.

Therefore, we decided to take a little break and have some fun family time. This decision was aided by the fact that one of Rasa’s good friends was getting married and we wanted to go and congratulate the happy couple. Continue reading

Beating a Dead Horse

Stinky shoes.jpeg

“You stink. Go. Now! Take a shower.”

This is my wife talking to me after I got home this morning from doing something I wasn’t sure I would be able to do – Running on a track.

Look, I know I’m beating a dead horse with this talking about running thing. Just recently, I talked about my virtual running and I’ve talked about it in terms of setting (and accomplishing) goals. But almost all of my running has been at the gym, on the treadmill. Continue reading
