Redrawing Gender Boundaries: How Wonder Woman’s Box Office could help change Hollywood [EDITORIAL/ARTICLE]

Many of our Goth Family know that I fight fiercely for the empowerment of women, not by diminishing men, but by arguing for the simple removal of artificial gender barriers like the glass ceiling and other cultural artifacts from the past. Without these barriers, the best person will (or at least, has a chance to) win out. We now are in a position where we can all help tear down these barriers and I believe it’s our duty to do so!

From Critic to Costar: A Nightmare Come True [RETROSPECTIVE/ARTICLE]

Hanging out at the Rotting Corpse Production table during ScareFest 2015 would prove to be a life-changing experience. A young actress by the name of Sonya Delormier asked if I would help to promote an upcoming Kentucky film called The Wicked One, and handed me a postcard-sized picture of the movie cover. Being a huge fan of independent horror films I was more than happy to spread the word. Never did I imagine I’d also end up being part of this slasher flick!

Born to Game: Day 3 of Gen Con 2015 [ARTICLE/EVENT]

It may have been based on D&D’s 3.5 open license mechanics when it was released in 2008…
