J. Michael Straczynski, the creator/writer/producer of Babylon 5 and Crusade, has been writing for television for twenty years. He’s been pretty successful at it, too. He doesn’t just write for TV, though. He’s also writing for comics (currently The Amazing Spider-Man, among others), and has published anthologies, short stories, novels, articles, and just about anything else you can imagine.

SO… not being a complete idiot, I gave up my own theme project and will use Tiga from now on (though I will customize it a bit . . . → Read More: New theme selected for Caddickisms
Don’t be alarmed if this page looks horrible.
I’m currently learning how to create my own theme, and I’m too lazy to create a development site for myself, so this is going to jump around between established themes and a crazy, completely broken one.

Bryce Zabel is going to be a professor at USC. If his class is anywhere near as informative and entertaining as his blog, I think his students will be well served. He said a few things that disturbed me, though.
