Day in the Life of Softball, The Dragoncast, and Home Improvements

Metallman
Perfect day to be out, catching a softball game!

Hey there. Looks like I'm going group the weekend into one post. I planned on doing daily posts but that just wasn't in the cards this weekend. Maybe this will be the norm, maybe this will be just a one time thing. Let's see how the weekend went down.

The Dragoncast Podcast Episode 48 - The One with Tom Kalinske

Hey there. As a kid (or maybe even now), did you ever take a Flintstone vitamin, play with Barbie or Hot Wheels, play with He-Man or She-Ra (or watch the TV show), or spent hours on a Sega Genesis? If you have, then you owe a big thanks to the marketing genius of former CEO, of BOTH, Sega of America & Mattel, Tom Kalinske! The guy literally built my childhood... and he was gracious enough to spent some time on The Dragoncast! Take a listen as Tom shares with us some personal stories about his time at Mattel and what went on behind the scenes of the console war between Nintendo and Sega!

The Dragoncast Logo
Hey there. This year has been one wacky year... This Covid virus has put a huge damper on 2020. It has made us change the way we do things and interact with each other. Especially when it comes to the holidays and dealing with large crowds. In episode 47 of The Dragoncast, Brian and I touch base on those changes, how it may affect the movie business, and how it may affect interactions with family.

The Dragoncast Podcast

Hey there. First things first... I'm sorry I have been posting as much as I intend to. There's no excuse, I'm just being lazy. But I'm trying to break that now!

The DragonCast, A Dragonblogger Podcast, Lives On

The DragonCast Podcast by Dragonblogger
The DragonCast returns and has a pretty awesome logo, if I do say so myself!
Hey there. I'm on a mission to get back into the game. Back into my Metallman persona. It's been far too long since I've been at the keyboard getting a blog post together. But that's not the only thing that I haven't done for some time. I haven't gone behind the mic and get a podcast going. It's been about 5 years, actually. It was something that I really enjoyed and thought that I would be able to get back into once I settle into things. Luckily, my good friend Brian, the team at Dragonblogger, and I got together and have resurrected The DragonCast Podcast. Yeah! And it feels as if we just picked up right where we left off!

Back to Being Metallman

Metallman in hospital
Oof... the worst is over now and I'm ready to take on the world!

Hey there, friends. It's been awhile, huh. I've been on and off the interwebs throughout the years. Recently, I went through surgery and had to deal with some complications. Hospitalized for a few days and what not. Scary stuff, especially now since this Covid 19 pandemic has turned our world upside down. Anyways, I wasn't in the right state of mind to write. I wasn't in the right state of mind to review. I've had a few posts here and there, but they are far and few in between. There was no consistency or motivation on part during that time. But that dark period is over now. I have a renewed sense of life and my motivation has been renewed. Overall, I just feel better about myself and about life. With that being said, I am back to being an online person. Back to being a podcaster (back on The DragonCast with Brian), back to reviewing, back to giving stuff away to my readers... back to being Metallman.

Giving Thanks for the Year that was 2014

Hey there.  Can you believe that 2014 is nearly over?  Tomorrow is New Year's Eve.  2014 will soon be a memory and new experiences will be made in 2015.  2014 has been an eventful one, both personally and professionally.  Personally, new city, new home, new environment...  Professionally, new schedule, new contacts, new opportunities.  Personal items affect business items.  Moving into a new home really set me back a bit blog wise.  I'm sure you noticed that my posts have not been as routine as they used to be.  But those months spent settling into a new home is now over and a schedule has been set in place to assure posts are done on a more consistent manner.  But I digress...  This post is about giving thanks.  Thanks to those that have made 2014 a successful one for this website.  Also, I want to give a little insight on what is to come in 2015.  So let's get right to it.

Sorry I Have Been MIA

Need to post!  Gotta podcast!  Need to post!  Gotta podcast!
Hey there.  Sorry I've been MIA recently.  I've been so caught up with work and working out that I haven't been able to carve the time to write something up and I feel completely horrible for not writing.  That's a good sign, right?  lol  No worries though.  I'm back.  I'm done with being missing and I need to get back into the swing of things and decided that a quick, "what's up", post will do it.  So what's going down?  Let's find out!
