Scarface: Gaining the world, and losing everything

I love action movies. But up until last night, I had never seen the classic movie Scarface, starring Al Pacino. I initially became interested in watching it thanks to videos on YouTube showing a playthrough of the 2006 videogame based on the movie, Scarface: The World is Yours. The videogame serves as a sort ofContinue reading “Scarface: Gaining the world, and losing everything”

Cort MacDonald: Walking His Own Path

Cort MacDonald is the everyday high schooler. You can often find him either strumming his guitar, playing poker, and socializing with his friends around school or in his spare time. He’s a fun-loving kid just looking to make a few more memories with his classmates and teammates before he heads off to school for hisContinue reading “Cort MacDonald: Walking His Own Path”

The Deshaun Watson Trade: Deeper Than Football

I still can’t believe it happened. The Cleveland Browns traded for Deshaun Watson. In any other situation, I’m liable to do an Irish jig, which would be quite the sight to see from a guy who has Cerebral Palsy and chicken legs 😉 But I still don’t know how I feel. It’s been a wildContinue reading “The Deshaun Watson Trade: Deeper Than Football”

What can we learn from the Ukrainian People?

Every day I see disheartening things on the news. That’s why I mostly avoid it. And if I do watch the news in long stretches, I’ve become so desensitized to it, that much of what I see doesn’t really faze me anymore. I care about others and hate seeing people suffer. But the Russian invasionContinue reading “What can we learn from the Ukrainian People?”

Where do they go from here?

Yikes… Where do I even start? I’ve witnessed countless bad Browns games in my life, but last night’s 26-14 loss to the Steelers in Ben Roethlisberger’s final home game might’ve taken the cake for the most excruciatingly painful loss ever. And it’s not even because we lost to the Steelers. Pittsburgh just played better thanContinue reading “Where do they go from here?”

The 2021 Carey Blue Devils: Team of Destiny

I’m still in disbelief. I likely will be for quite a while. But it became a reality last Saturday a little after 5:30 PM. My high school football team, the Carey Blue Devils, are Ohio State Champions after defeating the Coldwater Cavaliers 26-14 in the Division VI State Championship Game! Some schools, like Coldwater, areContinue reading “The 2021 Carey Blue Devils: Team of Destiny”

Learning empathy from an unlikely place

I’ve definitely been in a deeper thinking mood the last few days. My mind just feels unlocked and “free.” It’s like I’m able to take what I learn or see, and open myself up a little bit more than normal. I still have my mental blocks and obstacles, sure. But after receiving a lesson inContinue reading “Learning empathy from an unlikely place”

Finding Peace in Life

Hey everybody! I’ve been AWOL for the last few weeks, but I have to always follow my only rule when I write which is to only do so when I feel inspired to do so. I always want my writing to mean something, make people think, or make them laugh and smile. Pardon my french,Continue reading “Finding Peace in Life”

Spider-Man Noir: A Gritty Classic

I’ve been on quite the Spider-Man/comics kick lately! I used to buy a new volume every few months or so as a treat, since used paperbacks cost me $15-$20 a pop, at the very least, and they add up after a while. Now? I’ve been buying BIG volumes of comics digitally for much cheaper, andContinue reading “Spider-Man Noir: A Gritty Classic”

Adult Lessons from a Childhood Favorite

Ever since I was a little boy, I have always absolutely loved the 1990’s Spider-Man Animated Series. It’ll be one of those timeless shows I’ll introduce to my children if I have any in the future. It’s such a wholesome show that everyone young and old can enjoy and get something from, and it’s betterContinue reading “Adult Lessons from a Childhood Favorite”
