It was suggested that I put an additional message up about this, in case people didn't check the site for a long time. So, if you missed the news, I've been running a new show at Dinosaur Dracula for like, eight months now. Check it out, and keep up with it on Facebook and Twitter!
Missed the memo? I have a new site. It's called Dinosaur Dracula, and its 1st Halloween Countdown is one week old. GO THERE.
(Reposting again for those who didn't hear and missed all the fun.) The new site hatched in June, and it's full of fun stuff! Dinosaur Dracula! Enjoy!
(Reposting for the brave few who only keep up with me via RSS and missed the first note.) The new site has hatched. Dinosaur Dracula! Enjoy!
The new site has hatched. Dinosaur Dracula! Enjoy!
So! I wanted to give you guys some advance warning on what’s what. I’ve decided to move to a new domain, and won’t be continuing X-E for much longer. …but please read the rest before processing that. Try this analogy on. It’s a bad one, but try it on anyway. Let’s say X-E is my [...]
Quick note: I joined Tumblr, which will hopefully grow into a nice side blog for the tiny things I normally wouldn't waste space on here. I'm mainly using it as a depository for photos of the random things I own, but I've also been encouraged to color dinosaurs. I should have a regular post up [...]
One thing I love about Christmas this year? Zero expectations. Pulling the plug on both Advent Calendars and then deciding that I couldn’t do the site at all made for a massive departure from the Christmases I’ve grown accustomed to: The kind where I’m strangling clocks to finish weirdo X-E projects, and barely getting my hands [...]
Here’s the deal: I’m taking a break. I’m fried. I think this has become increasingly obvious, but, if it hasn’t: I am fried. I have a lot of work to do for real life stuff, and I think I’ve been giving too much time to this other thing here. (Which I love to do, but [...]
Every neighborhood has that one family who goes beyond the call of duty with their Christmas decorations. If you’re lucky, yours has several. One of the benefits of my McMansion-stuffed, gaudy-as-fuck hometown is how overboard some folks go on their Christmas displays. The Griswold house in Christmas Vacation is only a slight exaggeration of what I’ve seen [...]
If you haven’t been keeping up with MM’s Star Wars LEGO Advent Calendar on YouTube… Stay the course. Today was a rough day. From the trivial to the crucial. I learned long ago that writing while preoccupied is rarely a good idea. On the other hand, Christmas is like, tomorrow, and I still have that big tub [...]
You’ve all heard about this drama surrounding Coca-Cola’s attempt to save polar bears, aye? I’ll be honest: I’ve only digested the broad strokes. Why bother putting research into this, when my real goal is to just show off a new Slurpee? From what I can gather, the story goes like this: Coke, in their continuing effort to [...]
It’s the scariest time of year. The time of year when we, the Christmas lovers, become lulled into that familiar and false sense of security. “Oh, it’s barely mid-December, there’s still plenty of time left.” Okay, but that “plenty of time" sure has a habit of feeling like two seconds. Make the mistake of blinking, and Christmas [...]
I love scoping out the supermarkets at Christmastime. I shouldn't admit it, but that’s one of my favorite pastimes of the entire year. You just never know when the makers of an everyday foodstuff will see fit to redress their wares in red and green. I’ve learned to take nothing for granted. Most supermarkets have a [...]
I’m taking a break from Christmas today – both on the site and in real life. See, my “office” (a spare bedroom) is in shambles and has been for years. I’m going to tell you that story in full, but not today. Just know that it involves severe confessions that I would never share if I [...]
You have my personal guarantee. By the end of this post, you will be hungry enough to eat a Peruvian giant yellow leg centipede. Fools. I’d like to see you try. Here’s the situation. Kraft has unleashed enough holiday marshmallows to make it clear that they’re seeking penance for mortal sins. It’s even better than the stunt they [...]
One of the sad byproducts of having such an elephantine blog archive is that nobody bothers looking at it. I don’t blame you. The X-E blog went live in 2002, and save for design changes and a migration to Wordpress, it really hasn’t changed much since Day 1. That means no convenient tags, and only a [...]
We’re three weeks away from Christmas Eve. That’s too little. I want five weeks. At least, I did until I remembered that it’d place me squarely at the point where I was going crazy trying to find the ingredients for Thanksgiving’s stuffed mushrooms. That wasn’t fun. Nobody had pine nuts. Fearing that the speedy calendar will [...]
We went out for sushi tonight. I needed it. Not so much the sushi, but the “going out” part. I’m a freelancer. That has upsides and downsides. One of the upsides is my ability to strategically devise “lulls” so that I can write about pink bunny slippers more often. One of the downsides is that I [...]
Hello, and welcome to December! Both Advent Calendars have now been activated. The "normal" one (which, again, has been shrunk down this year so I don't lose it), can be followed by clicking the bright numbers up above as the days go by. The second Advent Calendar – on YouTube – can be followed by clicking [...]
