So, Icon for Hire released an album out in October. And I'm just now getting to the review. (Yes, my time management needs work.) So, yes, Icon for Hire released their second album in October and it is pretty epic, but if you're looking for an exact copy of their first album "Scripted", don't look… Continue reading Counting on Songs like Yours…
So, my measurement for whether or not a sequel is good is if I can walk away and say that I liked the characters more/the same than I did before I watched the movie. And that was totally the case with Thor. From Jane to Thor to Loki (believe it or not because I'm not… Continue reading I adore the Thor
In a nutshell: Icon for Hire rocks. I've been fortunate to know about their music since their song "Make a Move" popped up over as the iTunes Discovery free song back in August 2011. (Let's just say that the rest of the album was purchased before the song ended.) So, yeah, I've listened to their… Continue reading Awesome band is awesome.

I didn't win the contest, but I did find it fun to try to write for a world we know practically nothing about. I wrote two ficlets. I ultimately chose the second… Continue reading Writing contests, word limits, and Bungie — oh my!

Enjoy listening to it here, but consider buying it over at Amazon or iTunes. (It's a buck -- just don't buy… Continue reading Name the tune!
So, on Monday, I had the privilege of being one of Bungie’s guest for the Song E3 press conference. (Kudos to DeeJ for answering ALL THE QUESTIONS that I threw his way. Patience, the dude has it.)Babe and I arrived at the pre-show event where there were a ton of food trucks waiting for us. (This… Continue reading It was my Destiny…
Yesterday, Babe, the girls and I went to Disneyland (surprise, surprise) and headed over to the Iron Man exhibit they have at the Innoventions building. For the first time in, well, a really long time, there was actually a line to get into it. It wasn't too bad --maybe ten minutes-- but those clever folks at Disney… Continue reading The Man of Steel, er, Iron
I'll confess, I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with music. Forget TV, give me music any day of the week. (And, yes, I'm one of those people who can listen to the same song 57 times in one day.) One of my weaknesses is video game soundtracks. (No surprise, right?) I love the Crysis soundtracks.… Continue reading Video games and their epic music
