The First Pirates

The First Pirates

When I first started writing The Lives of Dexter Peterson, I wasn’t exactly starting with zero research. As I’ve said before, the entire story was the product of NaNoWriMo in 2005, so I hadn’t

Building A Better Merch Table Display

Building A Better Merch Table Display

I know, most of you who read my blog aren’t musicians, but occasionally I stumble across a business idea that’s worth sharing with others. Besides, I do see a lot of you at the nerd conventions trying to sell your art, comedy, comic books, hand-knitted cartoon characters, etc. Some of your merch tables are better

If you haven’t read Emily White’s post about how she’s spent her life stealing music or David Lowery’s thoughtful response on his own blog, I’ll give you the tweet-length version: Kids today download music because paying money is inconvenient to them; the thought of purchasing songs doesn’t even cross their minds.  You’re better off reading

The Invasion Is Nigh

The Invasion Is Nigh

This is what will be invading my house in three days. Just one of them, but we’re assuming he’s the advanced recon team relaying intel back to the horde… Of course, if we feed it and water it, scientists tell us it could grow as large as 120 pounds or more… yet still retain the

Super-Sized Science

Super-Sized Science

Entry by Deanna Rachel. This entry needs artwork! Note from Matthew: Sadly, this one really doesn’t fit the canon since Dexter’s name never changes… however, Deanna took the time to write so dammit I’m taking the time to post it! My name is Dexter Jared Peterson. I am 26 years old and I live in

Round One… FIGHT!

Political Absurdity Begins In Grade School

Some of you may be wondering how we got here. I have a hunch, and I want it spread far and wide. This knowledge needs to be universal. Any time you read a new meme or tweet or slanted story (especially one you agree with), this bit of info should be standing on your shoulder
