Hi. Hello. Just a quick disclaimer. As I said above, I will be ranting about The Flash, as I most likely have done before in small doses. But I wanted to clarify which The Flash I plan to complain about. I will not be yelling about The Flash, the 2023 movie starring (Notoriously garbage person)Ezra … Continue reading John Rants About The Flash(Comic Books)
Misadventures in Knitting
Not sure if this story is interesting or not but it's a weird experience and I felt it warranted mentioning. Also you don't have to read it. You could go read a different blog, or write your own post. Let me live my life! Anyway. Before... Back when COVID-19 initially became a major inconvenience, I … Continue reading Misadventures in Knitting
A Few Scary Stories
Happy Thanksgiving! In honor of this holiday all about eating too much food with your relatives, I decided I'd write some horror stories for you. Or at least, horror stories from my perspective.

John’s Movie Pitches Part 3
I've decided to continue my weird, time-honored tradition of posting at least five brilliant movie ideas every three months. I'm not sure how much of a tradition it is because this is only my third time doing it. And is it really a tradition or is it just a pattern? How many times do you … Continue reading John’s Movie Pitches Part 3
Why Do I Love Superheroes?

I'm sure I've said this before, but I know more about the worlds of Marvel and DC comics than I know about current … Continue reading Why Do I Love Superheroes?

Two of those times were so he could flip the novelty hourglass he kept … Continue reading Can’t The Story Just Write Itself?
Something is Happening
Today I'm moving back to Duluth. The city of fog, barber shops and sandwiches. And in three days I'll be beginning my sophomore year of college. And you may be thinking "That's very exciting. I bet, given all I know about John, that he's feeling excited, prepared, and not the least bit overwhelmed. And at … Continue reading Something is Happening
Nothing is Happening
Today’s my day off! I could try and rope someone into taking me to Grand Marais, but I’d much rather sit around and do nothing. But I also wanted to write a blog post. And since I’m doing nothing, I’m going to write about nothing. Real stream of consciousness shit. Completely different from my other … Continue reading Nothing is Happening
A Modern Fairy Tale
I wanted to start writing short stupid stories in different formats. And this week I decided to write my own fairy tale. It’s not like we have any good new fairy tales, right? It’s all pigs and wolves and shoes and beanstalks and other crap. Let’s get some new blood in there. I’m sick of … Continue reading A Modern Fairy Tale
