I’m the kid whose life really was changed the day his parents handed him that first comic book.
And so a lifelong obsession with all forms of pop culture was born. As for that young fanboy, I grew up to be a forty-something white Canadian male who doesn’t like hockey (I know, what’s up with that?) and doesn’t drink beer or eat back bacon.
Oh, and people call me The Hook.
The Hook is a keen observer of the human condition, especially how it reacts to fame and fortune. Most celebrities have no idea of the magnitude of the gift they have been given and so they squander their talents. I’m here to point out that fact and hopefully, entertain a bit in the process.
You’ll notice a slight shift throughout; I’ve begun to focus on the many little annoyances we all have to deal with every day. These “Terrible Things” fascinate me and hopefully you’ll join me as we shine a light on some of mankind’s missteps.
Occasionally, I’ll sleep. But not often.
I also love sc-fi – Doctor Who is the most underrated series of them all – but I draw the line at vampires, much to my wife’s dismay. The wife loves vampires!
I’m a huge comic book fan and if I could have a super power, I’d settle for a Green Lantern power ring. Imagine being able to put your willpower into physical form?
Now that would be cool.
