Though there are more than enough Halloween and Christmas cartoons, there are only a handful related to Thanksgiving that I can think of. Below is a small clip from my favorite Thanksgiving cartoon. I dare you to watch it and not have that gobble at the beginning stuck in your head.

I haven't given a new series I've been working on a lot of space here on my blog. That series finally has an official name, The Tyrus Chronicle. The series follows the main character Tyrus through the ending of a long war and adjusting to the world of supposed peace.

The first book, Forgotten Soldiers, will be released some time in December with the second book, Wayward Soldiers coming a few months later.

I plan to work on both this series and The Epic of Andrasta and Rondel over the next year and a half or so.

I’m still working on the official description, but I’m pretty excited about the cover and couldn’t wait any longer to reveal it on my website.

The illlustration is by Mario Teodosio. You can see his other work here. As usual, the cover design is by my wife.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments, and stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.


There are some songs that are just made to be played live. So much so, the live versions are far and away better than the album versions. Below are three examples that come immediately to mind.

Paul McCartney & Wings - Maybe I’m Amazed

Judas Priest - Victim of Changes

AC/DC - Thunderstruck

What other songs do you think fall into this category?


It’s a Black Sabbath kind of day and Volume 4 was on my brain.

Wheels of Confusion/The Straightener


Under The Sun / Every Day Comes And Goes
