I'm back!

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged regularly, but I’m hoping to get back in the saddle again. I’ve been inspired by my wife, who regularly posts to her makeup blog

I’ve also been inspired by what often feels like overwhelming negativity on the part of the Internet. I go looking for blogs or other Internet articles about things that I like, only to find people just bitching about them. I get that writing snark is more fun than writing praise or enthusiasm, but it’s not always fun to read. Especially when it’s just kind of silly. Like when I go looking for someone writing about comics I enjoyed in the 1980s, and all I find are people talking  about how they read like they were published in the 1980s. You think? It’s like complaining about the lack of CGI in Fritz Lang’s Metropolis.

So I’m going to focus on writing almost exclusively about things that I like. For those who know me, it’ll mostly be about comics, TV shows, books, and movies. Hopefully, my enthusiasm will show through, and those of you who read my post here will be inspired to check out the things that I love.

One thing I want to state clearly: I will not be writing reviews. I will be writing about my reactions and responses to the things I enjoy, but I’m not going to be analyzing them in detail. This may occasionally come across as if I am overlooking the flaws in things; more accurately, I am probably just not writing about them. 

I will try to post something at least once a week, so I encourage you to please follow me and let me know what you think. And feel free to share the things that you love in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
