It’s a true fact that authors think about things other than writing. Take hummus, for instance. I spend way too much time thinking up new recipes for that delicious nutty treat. And if I ever feel like sharing them with the world, I’ll post them here. Welcome to Zeedub Musings, my dumping ground for everything non-writing.

No Man’s Sky Has Become My 2020 Life Raft

No Man’s Sky Has Become My 2020 Life Raft

Every author has uttered the phrase "I should be writing." We say it when we watch another episode of that tantalizing Netflix series. We say it when we browse YouTube for adorable cat videos. We say it when we reorganize the fridge, because...

The Mañana Rant

The Mañana Rant

My wife and I have lived in New Mexico for the last several years. We moved there from the East Coast and knew that we would need to adjust to some cultural differences. We have dealt with several large moves in the past, so this was nothing new to...

Why I Watch Soccer Instead of Football

Why I Watch Soccer Instead of Football

In America, mentioning that you are a Premier League fan will garner some confused looks. Clarification that you are a football fan will garner a whiff of camaraderie before they realize what you actually meant: soccer, i.e. football to the rest of...

Rage Against the Dying of the Light

At the time of this post, I will have played World of Warcraft for well over a decade. It's where I obtained my Chops moniker and where I happily devote large chunks of leisure time. Blizzard's juggernaut MMORPG (massively multiplayer online...

Chops, Azeroth, and the Housing Bust

Chops, Azeroth, and the Housing Bust

Many people know me as Chops. My nephew calls me Uncle Chops. One of my oldest friends calls me Chopsicles. But alas, I am not the proud owner of bushy mutton chops, nor do I wield an epic cleaver. So why the nickname? I created the moniker back in...

Purging the Yearbooks and Other Worthless Things

Purging the Yearbooks and Other Worthless Things

I just did a strangely therapeutic thing. I threw away my yearbooks. Yup, all of them, every grade from first to twelfth. And I'm here to tell you, it felt fantastic. I have never been one to dwell on the past or pine for the good ol' days. I try...

Extra, Extra, Read All About It

Extra, Extra, Read All About It

One of my ongoing hobbies is working as a film extra (I even have an IMDb page). I have zero aspirations to act professionally, it's more of an excuse to get out of the house. However, my esteemed status as a punctual non-prick has awarded me some...
