Oh man, if only.

What if a fantasy band of adventurers were treated like we treat rock bands in our time?

That’s the premise behind one of my favorite fantasy novels of the past decade, Nicholas Eames' “Kings of the Wyld,” on sale for $3 on Kindle today. Definitely recommended:…

A public service announcement

The fact that the first song the Apple Infinite Playlist algorithm churned out after the entirety of the debut album by Bad English finished playing was Steve Perry’s “Oh Sherrie” makes me think said algorithm programmer has a very good sense of humor.

Happy Signum Regis release day to all who celebrate.

And is that a kick-butt metal cover or what?

I pulled up “Close My Eyes Forever” by Lita Ford & Ozzy Osbourne, and the Apple Autoplay has been doing yeoman’s work with the ’80s hard rock/heavy metal since.

Just musically wandering through my teenage years while working…

Narrator: It would not be necessary. #WentAndTookIt

It’s been a pretty great year for baseball in our house! #GeauxTigers #LetsGoRangers

Started and finished Eric Bishop’s novella Ransomed Daughter.

A great introduction to The Omega Group, looking forward to the next tale. Though between the name and the Arnold jokes at the beginning, I suspect this was just one big homage to True Lies…

Remember when we didn’t have commercials for medications for curved penises due to scar tissue or menopausal women’s hot flashes during nationally televised sports broadcasts? Good times.

Don’t send me political texts I didn’t ask for.

The most unbelievable thing about that Taylor Swift Capital One commercial isn’t all the Taylor clones, it’s the fact she’d be in a random airport lounge. We all know TSwift flies private.

The Empowered Parent Podcast crew is at the #replantedconference in Chicago this weekend!

5-0 in the postseason. They have played one home game.

According to the calendar, is now old enough to legally drink.

The business equivalent of the phone call on speaker in public is the Zoom meeting on the conference room speakers with the door open.

Who else had one?

Ever wondered what happens to the prayer notes left in the crevices of the Western Wall in Jerusalem? Well, now we know.…

I seem to recall a documentary about something like this with Kurt Russell in the early ’80s and the solution is to KILL IT WITH FIRE.…

Oh look, the Astros-Rangers game is the Free Game of the Day on

Oh look, I can’t watch it on my phone at my kid’s basketball practice because MLB broadcasting is stupid.

May have reached the point in the Rangers season where I’m actually glad I’m unable to watch the games due to local blackouts on MLB.TV (which is stupid if I’m paying for it), and the β€œdisagreement” between Bally Sports Southwest and Frontier.

No one: Chris, what did you do when you got home from #ImmortalFestII?

Me: Started ripping all the CDs I bought in to my iTunes library…

The two ladies manning the Hertz customer service booth at Dayton International were an utter delight to interact with. Sweet and quickly competent, a dream customer interaction.
