While I enjoyed working on the various websites and digital media projects, they all ultimately ended with me more or less back where I was when I started. As such, I’m going to be changing my approach in future.

Back in 2011, Rowan Bettjeman, Alan Morrison, and Adam King- under the group name of Viva La Dirt League -started doing short comedy skits for their YouTube channel centered around the things they loved.

The Lights Have All Been Turned Off for the Year

It’s late Monday evening as I write this. Dragon Con 2020 is (largely) in the books. There’s still a lot of content out there on platforms like YouTube and Vimeo that there was just no way to work in enough time for over the last few days. So, there’s still some Dragon Con 2020 to enjoy during this next week.
