New MCC entry! That time we visited the New York state capital's New York State Capitol:

State Capitol buildings aren’t an absolute must on our road trips, but we’ll drive near them sometimes when it’s convenient, when they have special features, or when the mood strikes. Longtime MCC readers have seen glimpses — and in-depth tours in a few…

New MCC entry! That time we walked around downtown Albany, New York City's overlooked older brother:

Contrary to the popular opinion of Americans who forgot everything they learned in school within minutes of graduating or dropping out, New York City is not the capital of New York state. Yes, NYC has a larger population, more square footage, taller…

New MCC entry! That time we visited the grave of a U.S. President who once got name-checked in a "Die Hard" sequel:

For those a bit mystified that this vacation was supposed to be all about dead Presidents and are getting impatient because our last Presidential burial site was nine chapters ago: fear not! We’re getting there. They weren’t exactly next door to each…

New MCC entry! That time we toured a Revolutionary War battlefield in New York, and a strange case of eulogy and erasure:

The average American battlefield tour is 70% grassy fields and 30% statues and sculptures everywhere. At least, that was my assessment on last year’s drive to Baltimore, which featured stops at two Civil War battlefields in Antietam and Gettysburg. Anne,…

New MCC entry! Thoughts on John Cho and the suspenseful screens of "Searching":

One of the odd dichotomies of living a robust online life is that we’re often better known to strangers in distant lands than we are to the offline, physically adjacent family and friends who have actual visual contact with us on a regular basis. There…

New MCC entry! That time we stopped in Utica for an art collection to rival the Guggenheim's:

Longtime MCC readers know Anne is the history buff in our family, while I’m more like a history Biff. In planning such a history-heavy vacation, Anne was concerned I’d get bored quickly for lack of attractions that speak to any of my interests. Anne dug…

New MCC entry! Overlong thoughts on "The Predator", still not the worst in the series because honestly have you seen the others?

No one in their right mind walks into a Predator flick expecting cinema genius. They’ve never known the respect that the Alien series originally garnered among sci-fi-horror fans, which may explain why viewers are swiftly enraged whenever an Alien sequel…

New MCC entry! That time we walked a New York downtown on a sleepy Sunday night:

By the time we finished paying our respects at Frederick Douglass’ gravesite, we agreed Day Two had dragged on for far too long and needed to end. We had to wend our way out of one upstate New York city before we could finish the evening with a stroll…

New entry! MCC Team-Up presents Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass:

Our tour of the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House wasn’t the only highlight of our Rochester detour. Across the street sits another tribute to the titular champion of women’s voting rights. Alongside her is a great man, a close friend of hers, and…

New MCC entry! Who we met and what we did at this year's Hall of Heroes Comic Con:

Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover: In March 2017 my wife Anne and I attended the inaugural Hall of Heroes Comic Con in Elkhart, Indiana. Under the same ownership as the nearby Hall of Heroes Museum (which we’d visited the year before), HoHCC was a…
