But Seriously: Buy a book, and help Peter David!


So, one of my favorite writers, Peter David, recently suffered a stroke. I had the chance to chat with him at the 2012 New York Comicon, and he's one of the nicest people. Even before that, I saw him give a mini-presentation at a con in the Buffalo area waaaaay back in the day (mid 90s). He'd created the show Space Cases for Nickelodeon, and he did a slide show--with actual slides. Yes, kids, they were once a thing. Anyway, there were some issues with the projector, and my dad helped him fix it. Cool story, I know.

I guess what I'm trying to get at (way to bury the lead with your ramblings, Kurt) is that you can totally help him out by buying on of his books. He's quite the prolific author as well, so there's plenty to choose from. Check out his bio from Crazy 8 Press.

I'd suggest his "Pulling Up Stakes" two-parter. It's a bit of a send up of the recent surge in vampiric media with an irreverent sense of humor. The first part is also $1 on amazon. How can you say no to that?

He also writes X-Factor, a sort of super hero noir/comedy/drama mash-up. It's also one of the best comic book series of all time. That's right, I said it. Come at me. I will cut you.

Keep up to date by following Peter on twitter and his blog. And please buy one (or all) of his books!

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
