Movie Review: Hell and Back

This week I’m reviewing Hell and Back, an animated horror comedy. Here’s what it’s about: “Two best friends set out to rescue their pal after he’s accidentally dragged to hell.” This is a fun movie. I did enjoy it, although I can’t give it a spectacular review. Hell and Back was completely and totally predictable. The comedy was the same old same old, as if the writers stole a bunch of jokes an threw them … Read more

TV Review: Preacher

I’m in a very confused state of mind going into this week’s review. It’s Preacher, the new AMC show, that has me perplexed. Here’s what it’s about: “What if an angel and a demon procreate? What would that offspring be? Would it be holy or demonic or both? Preacher Is that tale. The offspring has no body, just a soul. That soul needs a body and chose Jessie.

The Bad News, I’m an addict; The Good News, I’m in Recovery

For the last few years I forgot my main career goal, become a successful fiction writer. I was slapped in the face with this realization back in April. Years of goals not met sent me over the edge. That and the stress in my life was threatening to kill me, literally. Yes, literally. My immune system was on fire when I was knocked on my ass.
