Went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, sort of on a fluke, but I have to admit I really enjoyed it. Definitely the best one in the franchise since the original, and despite a relatively long run time, it’s nothing like the horribly bloated World’s End. 

Salazar is easily as good a villain, if not better, than Dave Jones. And the supporting cast, especially Barbosa, kill it. 

Oddly, though, the movie retcons a lot of the Jack Sparrow lore established in outings 2 and 3, but it’s mostly for the better. 

If you were on the fence, get off and go. You’ll have a lot of fun. 

The A, B, Zeees – My new project on Kickstarter

I usually write comics and novels, but I was on a zombie kick a while ago and wrote a bunch of zombie poems. I turned one of them, The A, B, Zeees, a zombie alphabet, into an actual project that I’ve launched on Kickstarter.

If you’re familiar with books like Edward Gorey’s Gashlycrumb Tinies, or The Dangerous Alphabet by Niel Gaiman, it’s a lot like that.

If you like humor and/or zombies, you should take a look. I’d definitely appreciate it you could share and, dare I ask, back the project!
