              The man sat cross legged on the floor of an empty room, across from a giant mirror reflecting his tired but assured face. He breathed in deeply. Not much time left. He’s here to gameplan for the season ahead. A whole new year, a whole new set of expectations. He exhaled. Time to get to…

                              My favorite show is now one of the longest running sitcoms in television history. It was around 2 in the morning. I was a 14 year old insomniac in the midst of a freak out about having to get up at 6 the next morning for school. Flipping through the channels, I landed on FX.…

He’s one of those characters that is so much in the American lexicon that even the most lackadaisical grandmother out of Middlesboro could identify the character just by…

                                My dear friend and fellow Funkhouser writer Adrian Bryant has always mused that there are two sides to Stephen King. There’s Spooky King, the one everyone knows.
