Hello readers and listeners! For the second year in a row, I have immediately followed up Dragon*Con with a filmmaker interview. This year, it is with actor/writer/director Cindy Maples.

Hello readers and listeners! For our latest episode, I decided to share my thoughts on this past weekend’s Dragon*Con fantasy/sci-fi/horror convention in Atlanta, Georgia, which I attended for the ninth straight year.

It’s been nearly a year since I last updated on Sonic Cinema on my musical exploits. Truth is, I’ve been pretty busy with a lot of balls juggling in the air, so I haven’t been able to update quite as regularly as I’d prefer. But here we are, almost done with the first third of 2015, and it’s definitely been a ride. Last year, most of the year saw my […]

I don’t know how people go to school full-time, and work full-time, without going insane. It’s been a crazy three months just doing one online class and working full-time. And then there’s that pesky task of having a life in between. I’m baffled. To recap: in my last blog about my musical endeavors, I mentioned how I had decided to go back to school and augment my education. And so, […]
