ORIGINAL TRAILER: “The Bust”


I made this trailer many years ago as the final project for a high school class. I believe it holds up. Feel free to tell me I’m wrong in the comment section.

Short Story: “Homer The Saint”


Homer has lived his life up until this point by the morals and ideals he had hammered into him as a child. A combination of comic book superheroes and a rather solid upbringing made something of a do-gooder out of Homer, putting others ahead of himself every chance he could.   Until now.   Cause fuck it.   Homer wasn’t…

Batista Punked Out My Buddy


This didn’t happen recently. In fact, it was almost ten years ago. WWE brought back ECW. Most fans call it WWECW, because it was the famously extreme promotion put through a WWE lens.
