Happy Friday folks! Those of you who are at Comic-Con I hope you’re enjoying yourself. Those of you who aren’t there like myself, there’s always Guardians of the Galaxy to go see. Sadly I won’t be seeing it because I have no money to. It’ll be the first MCU film I won’t see on opening day. I knew I should have saved my money and not see Transformers: Age of Extinction (know that I think about it, that title is kinda ironic). Curse you Michael Bay!
Ahem. As the title of this post indicates, I wrote some stuff, some things this week. And here they are:
Musings of a Blerd:
Wednesday was Batman Day and this year marks the 75th Anniversary of the Dark Knight so I posted two Batman related articles to celebrate the occasion:
Batman Franchise Media, My Top 14
14 Facts About The Dark Knight
As usual here is my Thorsday post:
Thorsday #4 Adversaries of Thor Part 1
Today at 5pm I’ll be a guest on the Media Junk Food Podcast which is hosted by @Da_Nerdette. When the show is posted I’ll let you all know!
I’m also gonna attempt an idea I’ve had, it involves my comic book story ideas. Right now I can’t afford to pay an artist so I have to be creative in how I share my stories with the public. More details forthcoming soon.
That’s it for now! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Until next time!
Happy Friday everybody! This week, I didn’t write a lot-well actually that’s not true. I finally finished writing my horror short story and flash fiction collection. And I also posted another entry for my Musings of a Blerd column, but that is all I have for you to read from me this weekend. But as always I also have some bonus articles that you need to check out. So without further ado, here’s the list.

Thorsday #3 The Worthy
In the wake of awesome news that a new person will wield the power of Thor and will also be a lady named Thor, I wrote this article about others who were found worthy (or not) in the eyes of mjolnir.
This week also herald the announcement that the new Captain America will be Sam Wilson. So here are a few great articles regarding race and gender in comics and in the nerd/geek community.

Also my books are available for free over at Smashwords in their e-book formats. So go get your copies!
And that concludes this post. Follow me over on Tumblr.

Happy Friday! It’s time once again to recap the things I wrote this week. And here they are:
Musings of a Blerd:
For my weekly column over at Gonnageek.com, I posted two new entries.

If you didn’t know, I spend more time over at Tumblr writing than I do on here. In fact I’m thinking of making WordPress and Tumblr into one site in the future.
A Tales of Poes and Fire:
Me and Graves
Anyways, aside from writing, music, and all things geeky and nerdy, I love movies and I’ve created this Tumblr page dedicated to all things cinema. I’m currently doing a Matt Dillon movie marathon so I’ve posted a few entries about the subject which you outta check out.
Movie Marathon: Matt Dillon
Sunlight Jr. Movie Review
I post my short stories and flash fiction on my Readwave profile for viewing and feedback. This week I posted 4 stories.

Vampire of Light
Check out the updated Nerdy Sites page to find more diverse and interesting sites than before.
Also check out this video of cosplayer Jay Justice at the Philadelphia Wizard World Con. From her Tumblr “I was interviewed at Philadelphia Wizard World in my Gamora costume! They basically asked me for a quick summary of who I am, why I cosplay, and WHY ANYONE OF ANY RACE OR BACKGROUND SHOULD COSPLAY AS WHOEVER THEY WANT. And I told them. You can also see lallyinthesky pose with me as Nebula! <3 <3″
And that’s all folks! Until next time! Have a wonderful weekend!
