Of the Razor Industry and Its Craziness

Hey, take a quick moment and go take a look around in your bathroom. What is the manliest thing you see in there? The toilet brush? The shower gel perhaps? The laser-shooting pneumatic drill that you use to clean the goobers of sleep out of your eyes every morning? No, it’s none of those. It’s […]

The New Layout is Online

Okay I know I said it would take up to June 3 to get the new layout online, but plans have a habit of not going how we planned them to go. In this case, that’s a good thing. With the new layout containing 20% more information consuming 60% less bandwidth, it’s been an amazing […]

Welcome to The Purple Dragon….

To go with a shiny, new layout comes a shiny new blog (that, and the old blog has long over lived its usefulness to me and my writing career). This, like most blogs, is the home of my rants, raves and other random (bodacious) posts. Here’s the lowdown: I’m fun. I enjoy my work (thoroughly). […]
