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.
