Things that happen in life that I just want to talk about

Do Something

I’m a huge fan of The Art of Manliness website. I don’t always swing in and read it but I do get the weekly digests, and every now and then I’ll search the website for something that I’m curious about. The site is dedicated to reviving “manliness” in young men who seem to have lost…

Just Dad Things

Being a dad is a magical thing. You never truly feel rested from anything but at the same time you find some kind of strange energy that keeps you moving and enjoying everything. I woke up this morning to find my son downstairs with him mom putting those little spongy GROW capsules in a bowl…

Trying Something New

I’m considering a complete departure from social media, but without some sort of outlet in the form of the written word, I’m not sure I’ll be able to handle the escape. The main thing is that I have thoughts that I want to put out there, but I don’t necessarily want to contribute to the…

Dragon Con 2017

Every time we come to this convention, we have a good time. Man, this year is no exception. I think yesterday may have been one of the coolest days I’ve ever had at a convention. Each year I try to meet someone from the Frogpants podcast network, or someone from the Diamond Club and just…

Introspective Stephen

This blog has been neglected, then un-neglected, then neglected again for years. Over and over I’ve attempted to bring it back to life and start writing stuff in it again.

Europe Bound!

Streaming!

I have a had a blast picking up the hobby of streaming video games online. A while back, Ashley and I decided to open up the stuff we do on the internet to more content. For me, it didn’t feel right for that content to all be labeled Horseshoes & Hand Grenades. Our show has…

The Bottom of the Barrel

It’s been a couple days since the infamous night that Trump managed to take the election. I’ve had some time to think this over, and I’ve had some time to consider what this all means. Democracy worked and the country got what they wanted. Say what you will about popular vote vs. electoral vote, this…

In Shock – Election 2016

I don’t really know what to think this morning. It’s the day after the election in the US and we’re staring down the barrel of a Trump presidency. I’m shocked and confused how somebody as divisive as this man could garner enough support to become the 45th president of the United States. He’s ran a…

Wounded Knee

I haven’t posted anything to this blog in a really long time. A lot in life has changed, but I’m not really going to concern myself with too much of it. Here are the high points: I’m now working at Red Hat. (Yay!) Sam is 16 months old. I finally pulled up all the ivy…
