The softer side

November 29th, 2018

I have a lot of feelings about the protracted demise of Sears. It’s sad to watch an icon implode, especially one that occupied such a prominent place in both cultural sphere and my formative years. There’s been a odd symmetry to witnessing my grandmother’s death and the shuttering of the former retail titan in space […]

I’ve written about the “death of Disco” more than a few times over the course of Armagideon Time’s lifespan. Though not as flashy a topic as z-list funnybook characters or Atomic Age anxieties, that fad’s late Seventies flameout touches upon several points of retrological interest. Disco bubbled up from the fringes of pop culture, steamrolled […]

When I embarked on AT’s first Halloween Countdown, I used to this day to commemorate Maura’s and my second wedding anniversary. This post commemorates our fourteenth. Time goes by so rapidly, but the love is eternal. Recommended listening:

My grandmother passed away yesterday morning. It was sudden, but not unexpected. If you’ve read the autobio stuff I’ve written here, you’ll know she had been a huge part of my life from infancy right up through adulthood. I’ll probably have more to say about it in the near future, but I’m too busy trying […]

And I never did

March 15th, 2018

The first Toys R Us I ever visited was the one at the North Shore Mall. The mall also housed the only barbershop my grandfather trusted to cut his hair. On the third Saturday of the month, he’d load himself, my grandmother, Lil Bro and me into his oversized tan Chevy and make the long […]

Forty-six

March 13th, 2018

I spent my twenty-first birthday snowed in by a massive nor’easter. Twenty-five years later history has repeated itself. That’s about it, except to wish the happiest of birthday’s to good pal and fellow 313′er Mike Sterling and maybe remind you to check the first comment of this post before the week is up.

Howling wilderness

November 14th, 2017

I mean, kids are always getting into trouble, whatever, no big deal. But I think about some of the shit @ThatWeissGuy posts about all the time and wonder how he or anyone in Massachusetts is alive at all. — Smart Mark Hale (@ChaosMonkey) November 14, 2017 For some reason, Mark’s comment got me to thinking […]

After months of letting it grow out into a slightly shaggy mane, I got my hair cut yesterday morning. I usually go for a “high and tight” jobber, but this time I wanted something that retained a portion of my bangs. After some confusing back and forth with the barber, I ended up with splitting […]

Can you feel it, fellow children of the night? The chill in the air? The disturbing whispers on the wind? The unexpected quickening of your pulse? It can only mean one thing — the return of Armagideon Time’s annual Halloween Countdown, thirty-one days of tricks and treats exhumed from the dankest depths of popcult hell. […]

I turned out TV

May 5th, 2017

Been thinking about this tweet of Andrew's an awful lot today. https://t.co/X8bWk48m34 — Mike Sterling (@mikesterling) May 5, 2017 I’ve covered this subject in previous posts, but stuff sinks quickly in this format and I feel obligated to live up to Mike’s high praise for me. A couple weeks ago, I wrote about the conflict […]
