$BTU over Brady, $NOC over Nuk, $GD and $EPD over the Ravens D!

The fantasy football season kicked off on Thursday and I am positively indifferent, this despite the fact that my Snow Monkeys are playing in three leagues.  My enthusiasm, formerly reserved for player stats, waiver wire prospects, and analyst projections has now shifted to valuation metrics, chart patterns, and analyst projections.  It's $BTU over Brady, $NOC…

September 10, 2021: Slippery Slopes and News of Note!

September 7, 2021: Projects, Soups and Dogs, and Yes/No!

Yatta!  Pilot outline completed.  It clocks in at a robust 23 pages, but since it's the pilot, I wanted to include some nuance and detail to the characters, their interactions, and the myriad storylines.  It's dynamic, character driven, and does a nice job of introducing the world and its colorful players. With that done, I…
