Cogitations

Cogitations is the section where thoughts, observations, and other abstracts coalesce into written word. While not strictly related to the acting and voice over worlds, they are an insight into my inner-workings, my psyche, if you will.

The Comic Book Conundrum

I’ve reached an interesting point in my collection of comic books: I’ve fallen seriously behind in reading. Probably a year or so, at least. I didn’t mean to. It started out innocently enough. I couldn’t get to the comic book store for a couple of months. (House of Secrets, for those of you who care […]

Bored Summers, “Birds of Prey” and Mind-sprites

Earlier this afternoon, I recalled a peculiar science experiment I had done when I was young and bored one summer. I’m not sure why it popped into my head today. Nothing out of the ordinary was going on; I was outside eating a bit of cheese and *POOF* memory recollection!!! Perhaps it was the cheese. […]

Mishap of Sci-Fi Proportions Creates Romney/Ryan Hybrid

Inspired by and in the (attempted) style of The Onion Encouraged by their staff that a trip to a research lab would be beneficial to the campaign and show voters that presidential and vice presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, respectively, weren’t completely against science and education, they agreed to the joint visit. The […]

Google, Google+, and Over-Tailored Results

I read recently via Slashdot that Google  has further refined their searches to even further tailor them to the individual.  They’re including results from Google+, specifically from your circles (assuming you’re signed in, which most people are these days).  I get the goal (read: targeted advertising based on data collection) but half the fun – […]

Slim & Trim: Digital Storage Dieting

I have a philosophy when it comes to dieting: I don’t. Rather, I simply refuse to buy clothes that are larger. If my pants feel a bit snug, I may eat less of what I normally eat but I won’t go on any “diet” that requires me to change for life. I’ll definitely exercise more. […]

Save Money, Send an IM

There’s been a lot of chatter recently about the cost of texting. And the wireless carriers have a few questions to answer. People who didn’t opt for the unlimited text plan – and who might also happen to have teenagers – have ended up paying huge fees as a result of rampant texting. Now, don’t […]

Twitter & Celebrities

Celebrities have become somewhat common-place on Twitter.  Physorg.com reported a while ago that Oprah Winfrey tweets.  As she does with books, the mere mention that she has a Twitter page caused a flood of new sign-ups.  That’s no surprise.  People love celebrities.  They will follow them just about anywhere.  But Twitter is in the unique […]

Fatalism & Insects

I rescued a cricket today.  I use the term “rescued” loosely since it wasn’t in any imminent danger.  It was inside on a step and I ushered it outside to freedom.  I’m sure it would eventually have made it back outside and gone on with its life – whatever that is.  What do crickets do […]

Music, Microphones, & Voice Overs

An interesting thing has occurred lately:  I’ve started hearing things.  No.  Not voices.  Well.  Technically, I’m hearing voices.  But they’re actually there inside my head.  Wait.  Let me try that again.

The Seven Deadly Sins Take a Holiday

Growing up Roman Catholic, I was of course exposed to sin and salvation. (No, I’m not making the obligatory priest joke.) I’m sure I must’ve learned about the Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Virtues. However, I don’t really recall learning them at a young age. They didn’t take root in my psyche – and imagination […]
