Now About This Nonsense…

I started this website (or at least a website that looked a lot like it) way back in June of 2003. That first post was rambling, scattered and possibly unhinged. I’d like to think I’ve progressed somewhat since then.

I haven’t. But I’d like to think so.

For roughly eleven of the past thirteen-and-a-half years (I do take an occasional hiatus or three), I’ve plopped nonsense of one sort or another here, often on a daily basis. And never in an entirely straight line. I’ve waxed parenthetic about my home (Boston), my jobs (plural), my marriage (singular), my dog (sadly deceased), various jerks (sadly, mostly not-deceased), my age (steadily advancing), my idiocy (ditto) and the various other mortifying, mystifying, meandering and maddening mishaps that make up my existence. Real, imagined or ever-so-teensily exaggerated.

(Case in point: at least one of those category links up there isn’t working. I don’t know why. They’re generated automagically, and most of them are fine. Computers mock me to my face.)

In the meantime, I’ve flung myself at other proverbial walls involving my interests in writing, comedy and science (not necessarily in that order) — and occasionally, I’ve stuck! I performed in nearly 100 local standup comedy shows a few years ago, wrote and performed in another handful of sketch shows, wrote two article series for (now-defunct) comedy site, created way too many dubious ecards, created a barely-helpful science info site of my own (tagline: “occasionally accurate, always wrong“) and reviewed actual science for the research aggregator Meta, among other larfs.

Most recently, I’ve teamed up with my friend (and fellow recovering standup) Jenn Dlugos to form Drinkstorm Studios, which is now responsible for all sorts of terrors launched upon the world. That includes the Things That Make You Go Yuck! science book series for kids, published by Prufrock Press (available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, if you’re so inclined). It also includes far, far more ridiculous nonsense, like our award-winning webseries Magicland, set in Toledo’s only 24-hour/365-day amusement park; short plays produced in play festivals in Boston, New York City, Nova Scotia and Racine, Wisconsin; and more projects in the works. Many, many, hauntingly many more.

Anyway, that’s how I spend my time, despite a therapist’s best efforts. What’s your kink?
