My Three Favorite Cartoon Episodes of 2014

regular show

(Melody Evans posting on behalf of new Rogue writer Jennifer Schlameuss-Perry)I like watching cartoons better than almost any other variety of entertainment. In fact, I had kids just so that the amount of time I watch cartoons would seem less weird. Having grown up on the awesomeness that is all things Warner Brothers, Hanna Barbera, Disney and other great franchises, I have a rather a sophisticated palate when it comes to the consumption of cartoons. I need good story lines, good … [Read more...]

Leaving Your Mark in Unexpected Places


Not long ago, I posted an article about my journey as an aspiring writer and the struggle to find inspiration.

My writing adventure on both sides of the fence continues. As I write and rewrite my own projects and read/review my clients’ manuscripts, I’m amazed at how the time flies by. I stare at the screen until my rear end hurts and then realize I haven’t gotten up to pace in a couple of hours. Are my eyes about to fall out? Maybe. The days go on and on this way.

Horror Writers Association Admits Me Through Blood Ritual

Artists are very weird people. On one hand, we talk loudly at smart parties how we don't care if anyone "gets" our work. We claim we write for "its own sake" and our own personal satisfaction. That is a lie. Artists are artists because we want to communicate. We want to say something and have people respond. Further, there is a huge part of us that needs constant validation. The worst thing for an artist is that no one pays attention to our work. This is a painful thing to admit, but it's … [Read more...]

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach W. Lorton, who's thinking that monkey from Outbreak is looking pretty cuddly right now... "This thing doesn't kill, it annihilates." SyFy's newest original series, Helix, premiered over the weekend.  I wasn't going to watch it, because I couldn't stand the last SyFy series that was properly hyped, Defiance, past its pilot episode.  But then I learned that Ron Moore, the executive producer behind the gargantuanly stellar Battlestar Galactica, was behind the wh … [Read more...]
