How Certain Fiction Makes Me Feel

19 Jan

Grief
Inside me
Bubbling up
Caught in my throat
Threatening to choke
Me

It’s much, too much pain
To feel
Inside me
To have
Around me
Like a cloak
Or a fog
Or a shroud

Kids’ Shows, Back When They Were Good

17 Jan

Kids’ television shows have gone downhill since I was a kid in the 90s.

Here’s a brief list of shows from my childhood, in no particular order. Some are for really young kids, some are for slightly older. They’re largely educational (something modern kids’ TV shows lack) and entertaining.

Enjoy the trip down memory lane, and let me know what other great TV shows I don’t have here!

Are You a Fan of “24”?

2 Nov

I’m new to blogging correctly but I’m not new to blogging.

When I was in college I took a Mass Media class where I was assigned a show to watch (mine was 24) and keep a blog about. Isn’t college great?

24 the show

Anyway, my first attempt at blogging was really cute. There’s no other way to describe it.

Actually, there is this: it was hideous. Content aside, the design was bad, I didn’t use categories, didn’t use tags, didn’t use images…you get the idea.

I had no idea what blogging was really about.

I’ve learned a lot about blogging since then. So I went back and cleaned it up a bit so I could present it to you.

The blog is called glued2thetube (still love the title) and the content is pretty great (if I do say so myself). It’s mostly a play-by-play of the first season of 24. If you’re a fan or a first-time watcher, check it out here.

Beware: It’s chock-full of season one spoilers.

I’d love to hear comments (again, here or there). Enjoy!
