There’s not much I can divulge about my great friend Mike at this point without being terribly embarrassing for the both of us. We’ve known each other at this point for nearly three decades. So I suppose that this post will be brief. Or maybe not, let’s see where the day takes us. My Honor […]Read more "And Now My Annual Post for Mike’s Birthday"
For reasons only Jar Jar Hater will appreciate truly, this time of year brings me to a specially-reflective time as I remember certain events in recent history. One of those events is rather infamous among my circle of friends, as an off-hand comment gave birth to an entire “mythos” about which comic book character is […]Read more "I’m Still Batman"

See, Mike and I bonded initially over a very simple question about shared Doors fandom, and the sharing of No […]Read more "Doors Week: The Best Purchase"
