FULL BLEED: WAKING THE WITCH

It’s that season again. The trees are being steadily shorn of leaves, but the grass beneath them grows, having slept out the summer. The pumpkins are being put away, whether in pieces after vandalism or whole and unloved past their expiration date. It’s November. It’s that time.

National Novel Writing Month is […]

FULL BLEED: 1983 AND OTHER TERRORS

Given the year I call out, you all probably know what recent Hot Media Thing (at least on the internet) I’m going to talk about. Yeah, STRANGER THINGS. And I promise not to spend a lot of time on it because I’ve got other things to do. (Also: SPOILERS.)

So let’s start with some honesty. […]

FULL BLEED: AND WHEN YOU FALL

Little catching up to do here. Meant for this to be a weekly update thing, but I’ve already botched that. Maybe I’ll talk about my trip to the Lush show in San Francisco and how it’s nice to be a grownup sometimes. Of course, you have to put up with a lot of unrelenting […]

FULL BLEED: SOME FRIENDLY

 

Yeah, there haven’t been any updates for the last six months by my or anybody else’s reckoning. Sue me. No subscriptions to fulfill, no contracts to honor and who even reads plain old blogs anymore? Gimme that branded content!

So in the time that’s passed, I’ve watched my 48th come and go, tried […]

FULL BLEED – BUREAU OF LIGHT AND SHADOW

Well, that was fun, I guess. Looking back on that takedown of the first episode of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD.

Fun but pointless when you get down to it. No value to it other than lancing a boil. Probably should bear my own admonition to do better in cases like this.

Been behind on […]

FULL BLEED: TOMBE DELLA CITTÁ

Just slap this on while you read. Trust me.

I sat down with my son last night to watch the new WALKING DEAD spin-off show, FEAR THE WALKING DEAD which is really not a good title, but what are you going to do? You’ve got to invoke the mother franchise or people might not […]

THE PRICE OF FAILURE

 

No, really. That’s a song title. Right here.

I’m often asked for writing advice, and I try to be respectful in my answers, though I bet I’m not good at that part. The hellish thing of it is that… Well, there’s several.

1) Folks think I’m a potential source of good information regarding […]

BUT I’VE ALREADY SEEN THE PICTURE; IT FILLED ME WITH BELIEF

THE LAND OF PUSH AND PULL

 

Your perfect soundtrack for thist post. Just loop it.

I managed to trap myself yesterday, pretty bad. Not gonna bog you down with the personal details that you’re not really interested in, but last week was no damn good. This week not so much either. Let it all catch up to me, or […]

EDGED – Full Bleed goes to the William Gibson show

EDGED

The last time I tried to attend a William Gibson signing was the day that my father-in-law decided to start punching out. I was about twenty miles from home when I got the call and turned around. Anyone who saw it as a surprise wanted to see it as a surprise. He […]
