ExplodingHeart-01

What is this blog about? Well, it’s about everything that I love and obsess over. It says so right under the name. Duh. What, then, do I obsess over? Well, music [mostly punk, alternative, hard rock, metal, etc], movies [mostly horror, action, Asian, etc], comics [mostly superheroines], fiction [mostly horror, YA, etc], short films, web series, and, so much more of anything that doesn’t really matter to anyone but me. I love to share with my friends about all the things I love, but, my friends don’t care about all the things I love. I mostly wade through the brooks and creeks of popular culture, while my friends all swim in the mainstream. They only love what everybody loves, and, if everybody loves something – I don’t, usually. So, now, I’m sharing all the things I do love with you on this blog in hopes that you will stray from the mainstream, with me. You are so lucky. However, don’t expect insightful perspectives in well-written reviews and essays – I’m not that good of a writer. Hopefully, you’ll find something you like anyway, or even love. If so, let me know. I love when my obsessions become infectious, but, they rarely do. Oh, and you’ll notice that all of the things I love usually involve, in some way or another, talented, beautiful women.

Who am I? My name is Chris. I have a young daughter Gabrielle (aka Gaby) whom I occasionally post about. The late great Minneapolis punk band The Replacements changed my life in the mid-’80s, and, became my first obsession ever. I’m older now, obviously, but hang around with friends who are much younger because I can’t relate to people my own age. I’m into fitness and have been, on and off, since I was fifteen. I quit my job as an accounting manager in 2007 and went to school to become a personal fitness trainer, but, due to diminished income from being unemployed, I was forced to take a job as a civilian employee of the U.S. Department of Defense. Someday I’ll put my certification to good use. My WordPress user name, SCody2012, is taken from a “screenplay”, one of many, that I wrote for my own entertainment. It’s a romantic drama called Summer Cody, set in the summer of 2012, about a former ’90s alternative rock icon who walked away from her fame and into a self-imposed exile for 15 years, until a young filmmaker asks her to appear in his movie. Anyway, that’s enough about me.

This blog is named after my favorite song by one of my favorite female-fronted pop/punk bands. The song, like this blog, is about intense passion. So, listen to “My Heart Explodes” by The Dollyrots here …

  1. I see you have delved into screenwriting…one of my former passions. You seem to know who you are, something a lot of young people your age haven’t yet discovered. One of the interesting lessons I have learned through blogging is that it brings people of all ages into contact. and there is much to be learned from one another. Great to meet you, and thanks for visiting and following my blog.

    • Great to meet you, too. However, I’m not exactly “young people.” Shhh – don’t tell anyone! And, no one has ever read my 20 or so “screenplays” except for me. It’s just something I’ve been doing to entertain myself (since 2003). I have since become my own cult following. Maybe, one day, after I’m gone, my daughter will find my “screenplays” and share them with someone.
