Not Much to See Here


I will be taking a break from this blog as I concentrate on book-promotion duties for The Creator’s Game.

But, despair not. I will still be updating my Up With the Mooses tumblog regularly. There’s some funny ish there.

I will also be putting fresh content on my Goodreads author page and on my author blog here.

Blah, blah, blah and don’t forget to buy the book. It’s a real page-turner. Well, unless you’re using an e-reader.


Review: Locke and Key, Vol. 2: Head Games

Locke and Key, Vol. 2: Head Games
Locke and Key, Vol. 2: Head Games by Joe Hill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m making my way through the Locke & Key series as it draws to a close. I love the intricate entanglement of words and artwork. One without the other would tell less than half the story. On to volume 3, already downloaded to my Comixology app…

Phat Johnny Depp Message to NDN Nations

A message from the latest Comanche… This is spot on. Check out more comedy by Tito Ybarra. He is one funny skindian

Prom #3

Jesse and Christian went to Eastview High School’s prom this weekend, making that the third prom of the season for those crazy kids. Photos in this set are by Katie, who filled in for her Dad who was on the road like Jack Kerouac. Exactly like Jack Kerouac.

2013 Mil Ball

Tonight is Prom #2 for the weekend, this time St. Thomas Academy’s Mil Ball. Below are some photos of Jesse and Christian and their friends.


Prom Night

Jesse and her boyfriend, Christian, were off to prom this evening at the Wabasha Street Caves (cool place for a prom. Wonder if they’ll see Batman?)

Below are some photos of Jesse, Christian and their friends at Lebanon Hills Regional Park by our house.


Go, Nationals!

Couldn’t be prouder of the Iroquois Nationals U-19 team, which is tearing it up at the World Lacrosse Championships in Finland. Check out some of the coaches and players talking about the game in this video. Shout out to Ansley Jemison, son of our friends Pete and Jeanette back in NY. Go for the gold!

NLL Playoffs: 2 Hours to Game Time

Time to get fired up for the rematch between the Minnesota Swarm and the Colorado Mammoth, this time in the first round of the NLL playoffs. No better way to get ready for the game than to listen to some Santiago x The Natural. This video is from last weekend’s game at the X.

The Swarm are coming off a four-game winning streak (including last weekend’s home victory over the Mammoth). We’ll be at Cork’s Irish Pub tonight watching with the folks from The Hive. Go, Swarm!

Watch Jesse Play Box Lacrosse

Jesse and I had the opportunity to play in the Minnesota Swarm media game last weekend. Jesse played well and held her own, just like the athlete that she is. I, on the other hand, merely tried to survive without having a stroke or heart attack. The clip below, which aired on the local TV news, shows Jesse guarding one of the local sports anchors as he gets a breakaway and scores a goal.

The Swarm coaching staff and its star players gave us a 90-minute clinic in face-offs, loose ball scooping and shooting. Jesse and I had a blast. Later that evening, we got to come back to the arena and watch the Swarm clinch a playoff spot, led by star forward and Redbird Media client Callum Crawford.
