My Top Ten Favorite Dance Songs

Some of you who know me may know that I love to dance. It’s true! I may not look it when I’m under the every day, normal circumstances you may find me in. However, when the conditions are right, when my inhibitions have been sufficiently suppressed – you might find me not only out on ...

Don’t Be Afraid To Call Yourself An Adventurer.

You wouldn’t really know it just from looking at me, but I’m an adventurer. I’m guessing those of you who know me personally, and who have seen my quirks, are chuckling to yourself and saying “Joe. You are not an adventurer. You won’t even eat fish. Also, have you ever even been out of New ...

It’s a way ...

My Top Ten Favorite Marvel Comics Characters

I do a lot of interviews with this blog between my Friend Files, Cosplay Confessions, and Eight Simple Questions features. One thing I haven’t really done is indulge in a bit of personal fun with an interview of my own. I mean, what’s the use of having my own blog if I can’t rant about ...
