Who you gonna call?

Paranormal investigators seek to explain the unexplainable

Unexplained changes in temperature; sudden drops in the energy of batteries; feelings of "heaviness" in the air - these are the tools of the paranormal investigator. Well, the low-budget paranormal investigator at least.

It's good to be used

In a world where high-end jeans come pre-ripped and frayed, Lawrence's evolving second-hand scene blurs socioeconomic lines

Children of the '80s may be the last to remember a time when second-hand clothing was less than rad.

Review :: Archetype, "Bleed For Them"

Review: NCAA March Madness 2006 - PS2, Xbox

EA keeps the ship sailing with another solid year

Wild West Film Fest

My video was the only one that highlighted any part of KC's diverse culture. I wasn't going to make some white bread bull sh*t. Unless someone's getting shot at Union Station, I won't be there.

Pointy Ears

I'm trying to turn a new corner with this whole blog thing. I've come to the point where it doesn't seem to hold the same amount of enjoyment as it once did. I would like to focus on the video side of my life now. I don't know how relevant this new subject matter will be to this crowd but I'm sure you'll keep me filled in.
