The Simpsons/ Family Guy Review On Word Of The Nerd

wotnlogo-lilAfter a bit of a break over the summer, I’m happy to announce I’m back with The Word Of The Nerd Online. Here’s my latest Word, a review of the The Simpsons/ Family Guy cross-over.

I have to admit I cringed when I first heard there would be a Family Guy and Simpsons cross-over. Put together they have been on the air for thirty-eight years, approaching 800 episodes…

…Over the years I’ve learned not to get my hopes up about things like this, novelty episodes. This time I dialed down the anticipation even lower that usual.

And I was pleasantly surprised. Some of it was downright hilarious, literally laugh out loud funny. For the most part these two worlds merged together for an hour to coexist and even complement each other…

Word of the Nerd Review: Smorgasbord Squad #1

cover1My review of Smorgasbord Squad #1 for The Word of the Nerd Online.

” [The] story telling is is funny and absurd…  We jump into the story and figure out quick that we better hold on tight – this is a wild, weird ride… The artwork and wild plot twists should appeal to youngsters. It is sophisticated and intelligent enough for adults to enjoy as well…”

Sherry Carroll: Classically Ever After

Our friend Sherry Carroll has a new short story available through amazon. Here is my review: 

classicallyeverafterSherry Carroll Writes Great Rock & Roll. March 4, 2014

If you have spent any time in a band or in a music scene, you will recognize the world that Sherry Carroll paints here. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s really like to be immersed in that lifestyle, this is about as authentic as it gets. The style is rambling with rich descriptions, akin to the Gonzo writing of Hunter S Thompson; a slightly distracted stream-of-conscience that might leave your English teacher a little dizzy, but adds a layer of reality to the narrative which I believe is impossible to fake. You can feel the cold night descending on you in the back alley, chatting with the band as they pack up their van, a meandering conversation you can’t always keep up with.

The story here is a quaint tale of girl meets boy, but filtered through rock and roll spectacles and told from the viewpoint of a self-aware and somewhat self-conscious young woman, with a trace of shyness or reserve, but an overwhelming desire to dive headlong into life.

The story is rich in detail and imagery and there are some great, funny moments in the dialogue, and it all just comes together feeling true and real. Well worth the price of admission. An honest little glimpse and a wild, enjoyable ride!

Go check it out for yourself, it’s only 99 cents! It’s a fun romp and a quick read and well worth the investment.
