Over the Fourth of July weekend, I began a new feature for my #vintagegaming #YouTube channel, #Atari Newsline! Atari Newsline is a new weekly news feature for Atari news, Atari books and magazines, information about content creators, the new #AtariVCS, new Atari focused YouTube content, new Atari games, new Atari homebrew games, books and podcasts featuring Atari, and much, much more! I'm also changing my entire YouTube channel over into creating just content that (mostly) features Atari! Read on to find out why and watch my first introductory episode of Atari Newsline!
On April 21, I visited my big Sis in Socal along with my TX family. We met up and took Mom (for her 69th birthday) to Catalina Island on the Catalina Flyer ship. The waves got pretty brutal going over on Friday, 4/22, and it made me re-evaluate my life & my new choices, and how I can now stand in my own power. This poem was written in 'real time' on 4/23/22 @ 9:49 AM PST

Remember when 2021 held such promise? After an extremely bleak 2020 filled with deaths of loved ones and mass confusion the world over, 2021 seemed like a shining diamond on the parched horizons. Did 2021 live up to my expectations? No. Nothing does. With the global pandemic still burning, it's been yet another rough year... Continue Reading →
It's that time of the year again. Since 2004, I've written this poem annually to do a check on the state of affairs of myself during the holiday season. Here's this year's version. It's "Wintertide XVII" from my poetry book for Oct-Dec 2021, 'Earthly Delights in a Closed Type Universe.' Have a wonderful holiday! -BB... Continue Reading →
My Christmas Wish this year is for the world to continually strive to be a better place. My wish is for people to get along, regardless of their political or religious beliefs (or otherwise). My wish is for everything to stop being so political, life's too short. My wish is for everyone to get their... Continue Reading →
Is falling in love again worth the risk? Is putting your heart on the line worth it when you're in your 40's and have seen and lived every trick in the book? Sometimes, it's like rolling dice, or reaching for fire. This poem was written six years ago on Dec 21, 2015 and was contained in my poetry book, 'Look for the Silver Linings.' Enjoy! -BB
So here we are! On the edge of December... on the verge of yet another new year. Can you believe it? In this month's journal, I talk about the fast pace of life I've become accustomed to lately. Enjoy!
"Victory Laps in Outer Space" was written on Dec 10, 2021, from my poetry journal for Oct-Dec 2021, 'Earthly Delights in a Closed Type Universe.' It's an atypically happy yarn. Enjoy (while it lasts)! -BB
This is a journal entry from back in June 2019 that was previously unpublished. I thought I'd go ahead and publish it since I hate it when things go unpublished! The moral of the post is... seize the day, and don't hold your breath waiting for tomorrow. Tell your loved ones you love them in the moment! And be the best you can be each day. -BB
