Quarantine Blog, Day Fifty-Nine

It’s May 15th and Avatar: The Last Airbender (2005-2008) has found it’s way onto Netflix. You can bet that I’m on finishing up episode six and starting up episode seven as I write this blog out. I’m just as hooked now as I was when I watched it the first time as a kid. Just

Quarantine Blog, Day Fifty-Eight

I couldn’t tell you the exact date. Sometime over six years ago at this point. Outside of Stage Door for the Old Town Playhouse. 8th and Cass, Traverse City, Michigan. It was autumn then. My brother and I had just finished rehearsal for a show that I’ve written about before. (Read it here.) Above us

Quarantine Blog, Day Fifty-Seven

Wes Anderson graced the living room television screen again today. This time playing Grand Budapest Hotel; the first time I’ve had the pleasure of watching it through. For the past five years of hearing about the film, and slowly working my way through Wes Anderson’s repertoire, I thought that Dev Patel was one of the

Quarantine Blog, Day Fifty-Six

I’m finally reading my first Neil Gaiman book that isn’t Coraline. I’ve read a few of his short stories before, and I’ve been watching his MasterClass this past week and a half. Of course, I’ve been reading his blog for the past few months too. Since I’m technically on “summer break” from college, I have

Quarantine Blog, Day Fifty-Five

I had a little update conversation with a friend today. He’s been around for a while now, since senior year of high school, really. We’d kind of known each other before that, but just in passing. He and I actually double-dated our way through our senior Prom with our at-the-time girlfriends. Dinner at Gorgenias, pictures

Quarantine Blog, Day Fifty-Four

When I was sixteen, I thought it was a good idea to change my name. You know, to be an actor or a writer I thought I had to have a more interesting title to my life. That’s what happened in Castle, staring Natan Fillion. Before the mystery novelist turned semi-homicide detective, Fillion’s character Richard

Quarantine Blog, Day Fifty-Three

Today was a sort of full day. Starting out, I woke up to feed cats as they walked all over my face, begging for attention. Good start, right? Then, to coffee – black. Because I love to burn my mouth first thing in the morning. Finally, I got around to the actual reason that I

Quarantine Blog, Day Fifty-Two

I had the pleasure of seeing some good friends friends today. Don’t worry, we kept quite a large space between us; as the social distancing dictates. The few of us stopped by another friends house, keeping outside the whole time. On their front lawn they have a sign that reads “You are now entering the

Quarantine Blog, Day Fifty-One

Governor Whitmer has extended the shelter in place order to match the current state-of-emergency date. This isn’t the first set-back. And hell, it might not be the last. So what are you going to do about it? Are you just going to sit around and do nothing? Because if that’s the case, I gotta say,

Quarantine Blog, Day Fifty

I’ve been struggling for words. There’s something that I feel as though I should say for this big day. Something fantastical and grand! But there’s nothing there. Nothing to surpass any sort of expectation that someone may have set by now. After fifty days, you can’t be surprised. I’m not. So I hope you liked

Quarantine Blog, Day Forty-Nine

I used to do this dopey little news show on the internet. For a while it was called “Stinko News,” then I changed it to “A News Show, A Show About The News.” The original name brought a lot of confusion on what exactly was going on. And I never really felt like it was

Quarantine Blog, Day Forty-Eight

Okay! It’s high time I do something like this. Even during a pandemic-based quarantine, there is plenty that you can be doing to support your community. There’re things to keep your mind occupied instead of thinking about the void. We’ve been in this long enough that we’re all adapting. Come on in and see what’s
