A short horror story: Before you die, your life flashes before your eyes but it is not in the correct aspect ratio.

I had a truly amazing time at +CONvergence Con thanks to many, many awesome friends, fans, and partners in comedy. I'm thrilled to be a Guest of Honor in 2016. Here's a picture of the audience at my reading. I asked them to look like a monster was attacking the building. I look forward to CONvergence 2016 with the same level of intensity these awesome people are looking at the non-existent monster!

The show was recorded but I'll need to see how the audio turned out. If the quality is good I'll probably put it out as an album!

Whenever angry Americans talk about "moving to Canada" I picture Jon Snow preparing to defend The Wall.

I'm thrilled ALL marriage is now legal in the United States! I do agree with people yelling that ‪#MarriageEquality‬ is "a slippery slope." I look forward to sliding into even more equality!

Working on my new time-traveling fan fiction story. Taylor Swift goes back to 2002 and saves Firefly with a single post on LiveJournal.

My tweet about #GameOfThrones  made it into this Wired article. My parents will be so proud once I explain twitter, Game of Thrones, and Wired to them! 
We combed through the thousands of tweets about last night's season finale to find some of the best fan theories and reactions to everything that went down.

I accidentally left the house without taking my phone with me today. It was like time travel, but awful.

New episode of my podcast Obsessed with the great +Ken Napzok  (from Jedi Alliance and Schmoes Know podcasts) on his obsession with humorous SELF-LOATHING. It's a really fun, cathartic episode!
Podcaster and comedian, Ken Napzok aka The Pitboss on Schmoes Knows, joins host Joseph Scrimshaw to share his love of loathing himself.
