What I Did On My Summer Hiatus

It seems as if every time I turn around, there’s another new way to dot the I’s, cross the t’s, and close the book on summer. It’s over at the Fall Equinox! No, dummy, it’s over at Labor Day! Screw you guys, it’s over when the distributors ship us pumpkin beers! I don’t know what […]

5 Things On My Mind Right Now

I haven’t been saying much lately.  Wait, no, that’s not true. That suggests I’ve been roaming around the house in a mute daze like Frankenstein’s monster. I have been saying things, to my family, the people around me, etc. I haven’t been posting stuff, though. And that’s not specifically an indictment of my recent work […]

This One’s For All You Mothers Out There

Being Mother’s Day here in the United States, I thought I should take a day off from Project Bathrobe to be extra nice to the Puddinette. After all, she is the person largely responsible for making sure my children aren’t living lives of filthy squalor punctuated with too much bean soup and not enough bed-making […]

The Binge-Watcher’s Lament, A Haiku For Netflix’s Daredevil

Loved a show. So muchGulped it down, Solo-cup style Empty cup. Now what?

A Movie In 100 Words Or Less: Interstellar

I waited an inordinately long time to see Interstellar, and I’m kind of ashamed of it. This is geek stuff! Spacey! Futurey! Black Holey! Einsteiny! It’s my bread and butter, my mother’s milk. A space movie with breathtaking space, actual characterization, solid dialogue and potentially even science? And from Christopher “Memento/Dark Knight/Inception” Nolan, even! If […]

What I’m Up To Right Now

Just in case anyone was curious what I’m doing at this very moment in time (April 2, 2015, 10:01 PM), I’d say this says it all: Ugh. I just realized I need to write a synopsis. I'd rather write a bleak Russian class melodrama than go synopsising. — Jason A. Rust (@jasonarust) April 3, 2015 […]

The Best Monday Of The Year (or Revisiting The Start Of The 2015 NCAA Tournament)

Yeah, you heard me right: yesterday was the best Monday of the year. Ordinarily, I’d argue that suggesting any one particular Monday could possible trump it’s 51 brethren was crazy talk on the highest order. Like, seriously, you’d be better off taking stock tips from the “magic” fortune teller that made Tom Hanks Big. It’s […]

Getting Busy And Old And Exploiting Taylor Swift Songs

I have to apologize for not posting sooner this week. I was out of town doing that work thing Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, off having middle-aged dude adventures in Greenville, SC and Wallingford, CT (which is not too far from Hartford). Oh, and, for the record, “middle-aged dude adventures” means having too much curry at […]

Daylight Saving Time

 Don’t forget, most of us living in the United States will be turning our clocks forward Saturday night. And while losing an hour of sleep is never one of my favorite things, I don’t mind admitting that I’m very much looking forward to the neighborhood being a good deal brighter outside at 6:50 PM next week. […]

It’s Snowy And School Is Closed Tomorrow

 Also, Grammy Puddin’s birthday was yesterday, so The Attitude and I did what any right-thinking father-son combination should do. We made oatmeal cookies to take her this weekend.  Hopefully the snow that’s falling right now will accommodate.  If not, we’ll be forced to eat them all ourselves and make more later. Because clearly only a […]
