As I’m currently struggling with some massive fiasco on Facebook, I’m debating just deleting the whole thing and sticking with Twitter and Instagram. Until then, here’s a throwback from an earlier post from Twitter this last summer. Remember summer? I remember…
Happy 20th anniversary to this website. Course it wasn’t always online on this time and this wasn’t always the domain it lived on, but for all intent and purposes, this is where we are.
Here’s to being there from the beginning, and here’s bitterly making it until the end.
Due to a series of weird and unfortunate circumstances beyond my control, I haven’t been able to update this blog or my website in a while. Mostly by “weird” I mean I’ve been super busy, and by “unfortunate” I mean there’s no way I’m typing up this much content on a smart phone. You ever see how small the keyboards are on those things?
If you’re subscribed to my mailing list (if you’re not, come on now), then you’ve already gotten a hint at what’s coming up next. So sit tight while I try to play catch-up. I got so much to talk about I’m a little overwhelmed, not even sure where to start. But hey, gonna do it anyways… See ya here.
Writing samples are now available on my website! Feel free to read up on everything you can rub your greasy eyes all over. Short stories and screen plays, horror and sci-fi, a good cross-sample of what I’ve created over the years is now available online.
Also, if you’re looking for someone to turn your short story into a script, or visa versa, contact me and let me know. I offer fair rates and quick turn around times.
I’ve been pretty busy recently on and off set, but today I found some time to update my website. I added a few photos from my time as a make-up artist at Nightmare’s Gate last year, and I also included a picture taken at the Days of the Dead: Atlanta FX Competition, where I got to judge alongside legends like the artist Chris Black, as well as horror film icons P.J. Soles and C.J. Graham.
9.9.99 marks the day I published my very first website, back in the ancient times of the Internet. So much has changed, and so much has stayed the same.
Hence why I only make short blog posts now.
Did it for about 15 years. People keep telling me I should get back into it.
I don’t trust people. At least not “internet people.” Then again, it’s because I know better.
Today is the 15th ‘birthday’ of my life as a webmaster/designer. It all started with a pirated copy of Photoshop 4.0, a server sitting in someone’s living room, and a horrific use of neon colours on a black background. I was heavily influenced by the BBSes I was used to, and being lost out in the wild west frontier of the web 1.0, I was heavily influenced by anime fan sites and E/N blogs. I miss those days of E/N, and I’m still a little bitter they ended up being called blogs. But that’s how things have come and gone. I’ve watched this thing grow like a wildfire, I watched the dotcom bubble burst, and I’ve seen the birth of web 2.0. I’ve seen a lot, and I’m glad I’ve been a small part of it.
Wish I could have my small fonts and scan-lines back though.
Anyways, I lucked out being there for the beginning of the internet, and I’ve gotten to watch how it’s changed the world. I’ve also seen how the world has changed it as well. I can’t imagine what’s next, but I also can’t imagine not being a part of it.
It’s been a wild ride. Here’s to the future!
After 5 years of blogging on my own website*, I recently lost my database. There is no recovering. I lost everything. The custom design, the apps and widgets, and all of my pages and my galleries. A few hundred hours and years of contributions are now lost forever. Pretty catastrophic. But then again, that sort of thing never stops me.
Currently re-building from zero. I’ll post as it happens, sign up for the feed if you’d like to keep track.
Thanks, love you all.
