About MCCThis blog was set up three weeks before my 40th birthday as a means of charting the effects of the aging process and this fallen world’s degrading standards on my impressions of, reactions against, and general experiences with various works of art, commerce, wonder, majesty, and shamelessness. It’s my way of keeping the writing part of my brain alive and active, rather than let it atrophy and die.
Until and unless I can discern what I’m meant to be doing with this alleged ability, here I remain, watching as the cultures of pop, geek, and faith intersect in my head. Sometimes they team up; sometimes they fight. Meanwhile, my chances of aging gracefully through it all hang in the balance.
Worlds live. Worlds die. Worlds get rebooted again and again.
The Midlife Crisis Crossover.
I’m a full-time customer service rep; part-time Internet participant; longtime comics collector; former English major and two-time college dropout; pro bono content provider to the internet since 1999; and message-board staffer from 2001 to 2010, including six years as Administrator. I’ve been married for twelve years to a spectacular kind of lady who memorized several books of the New Testament, as well as the titles of all 178 episodes of Star Trek: the Next Generation. I love that she knows which is more important. I have a son in college who maintains a strict line in the sand between his half of the Internet and mine.
I’m prone to lurking on Twitter as @RandallGolden. Here or there, I welcome input, questions, ideas, and simple pats on the head.
