Have you ever wished there was someplace on the Internet where you could read the incoherent blatherings of a foam-at-the-mouth madman? Well this ain’t that, so keep looking, pilgrim! (And don’t let me catch you sniffing around here again!) If, however, you’d like to read the musings of a (mostly) reasonable adult steeped in pop culture from a young age, wrapped in newsprint-era comic books and raised with an appreciation for cinema greats like The Godfather, Star Wars, and Sucker Punch, your dreams have been fulfilled.
Join me in my journey through American culture, passing judgment on all that I see. Some topics I tackle might not seem important to you, but they should be! I love television, movies, comics, real books and a lot more, and I have no compunction about inflicting my opinions on anyone.
Professionally, my day job is senior editor of TheNationalENQUIRER.com.
I used to work at Soap Opera Weekly magazine — hence the archived entries from my official blog at soapoperaweekly.com — and then I spent the summer of 2011 as a freelance entertainment writer/editor. Despite indications to the contrary, I survived that experience. I even spent a couple of years as senior copy editor at OK! magazine, the celebrity weekly the stars trust! But more importantly, I am the co-creator of the KID TERRIFIC comic book from Image Comics.
Just about anything goes in this blog. One day you might find a movie review, then a discussion about comic books the next, and a review of a DVD I just watched on the day after that. I might talk about books — you know those dusty old things that TV’s Craig Ferguson calls “papery blogs.” And maybe — if the stars are right — I may ramble about life, the universe and everything.
Don’t try this at home, kids — I am a trained professional (with the documents to prove it).
