About

I started this blog as an outlet for my music related writing, then quickly expanded that to include film critiques and rants on various subjects. Around June of 2010, I started reading a lot of horror movie blogs, which in turn led me to watch more horror movies, and then to write about them. Thus I entered into a “shame spiral” which gave the blog a much needed kick in the arse.

In addition to writing about pop culture, I also compose and record music. I will try to keep the self-promotion to a minimum. As we all know, musicians are pretty boring, so the less we know about them, the better.

I am now co-hosting a weekly podcast with my lovely bride to be, Cecy. Good things to come, if we can avoid killing each other over the set list.

The other motivation for this blog is for purposes of disambiguation. There are a lot of Ryan Orvis’s floating around on the net, and in this age of cyber-stalking I thought it best to have a semi-professional home base of operations.  So if you’re looking for me, you found me – ignore all those impostors!

Alright, let’s do this.

  1. Of all of the blogs I read, this is already the one that is closest to my interests…I hope that you can keep it up, sir!

  2. Thanks, I hope I can keep it up too. So far it’s a lot easier than the other projects I’ve attempted, so I’m hoping that works to my lazy-ass advantage.

  3. Ryan – thanks for commenting on my blog. It was nice to get a comment that wasn’t spam and also nice to know that someone new is reading and also likes Hypnolovewheel. I’ve only looked at one posting here on your blog so far and I love it. You slay me. When did you live in Pittsburgh?

      Yeah, the spam gets old. I was there around 97-98, during the heyday of the Rickety Empire. Always thought Pittsburgh had a great music scene.

  4. Actually yeah, echoing the first guy on here, I found this blog after searching for details of the upcoming Rhino reissue of Nowhere, and found that particular post of yours particularly resonating – and I replied 🙂

    • Thanks Andy! I was searching on info about those records the other day, and saw that this blog comes up fairly early in the results. Which is great for the blog, but bad considering that I’m just as in the dark as anyone about the release dates!
