Ten Terrific Tunes for Tuesday – Vol. 5 #Halloween #TTTT

Ten Terrific Tunes for Tuesday – Vol. 5 #Halloween #TTTT You had to figure that I’d put a Halloween mix out there, and boy howdy is this one a doozy. Old and new intertwined, with a few familiar cuts and a few obscure diamonds in the rough. I have never really gotten heavily involved in Halloween. Whether it be dressing up in a fancy costume or going to big Halloween parties, I have done so quite minimally over the last 38 years. I do, however; love a bit of macabre…

What should be NX(t) for Nintendo? #NX #openletter #Nintendo

This is an exciting time to be following Nintendo hype and speculation. Back in March of this year, the big N announced that it was developing a new gaming platform code named the “NX.” Not a whole lot is known about the NX, but we have gotten a few nuggets of truth from Nintendo: The NX will use a new unified operating system that will be utilized across multiple form factors (essentially meaning that the OS would be the same for multiple systems: dedicated consoles, gaming handhelds and other mobile…

Thrice in a Lifetime: Chapter 2 #TIAL #NaNoWriMo

*** A brief note from the author: Your about to read the first draft of the second chapter of a novel I have been working on for awhile now (started it during NaNoWriMo 2 years ago, and now it’s nearly finished!). ** it may be beneficial to read Chapter 1 first ** The concept is simple, Maverick McCormick wakes up without a memory in his head. Desperate to figure things out, his memories start to come back to him, but are they in fact his memories? Is he really this person? What you are…

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions #NaNoWriMo

I have a decision to make. A rather tough one. I have 2 ideas that I am outlining for the upcoming NaNoWriMo event in November. Both are sound ideas, but in the immortal words of the Highlander, “there can be only one!” At least there can be only one that I use as my NaNoWriMo novel. In case you missed my other post on the matter, or this is your first time reading my blog, I will be participating in the NaNoWriMo event this year. What is NaNoWriMo? According to…

NaNoWriMo 2015 is here! #NaNoWriMo #buddyup #50000

  It’s that time of the year again. National Novel Writing Month is starting in November and I will be participating in the NaNoWriMo challenge. During this event you are challenged to write 50,000 words towards an original novel project. It takes discipline and a lot of creativity to get it done. I have completed this challenge once before, and I’m looking to do it again this year.  I would like to invite you to join me on this challenge. You see, you can have writing buddies during the event, and…

Ten Tunes Terrific for Tuesday – Vol. 4 #TTTT #HipHop

On occasion I like to get down with a bit of ye olde Hip Hop. Here is a modest selection of the choice beats and rhymes in which I like to utilize for the aforementioned getting down. Now in Apple Music playlist form as well: Listen to TTTT Vol 4 – Hip Hop by Packy on @AppleMusic Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five – It’s Nasty (Genius of Love). A classic track with fantastic samples and super tight rhymes – this is the definition of Old School. This track, and a…

I’m back…

I apologize for the lapse in new content. Real life, work, family, a car crashing into the rear of my own vehicle, my first ever surgery, job hunting, and other new endeavors have all played a heavy part in my decision to take a month off. The good news? What I just said above was the bad news, so it’s all good news going forward! I will be posting new content tonight as well as tomorrow and I do not anticipate any further disruptions anytime soon. I prefer writing, creating and sharing…
