Election Day Is Tomorrow…

...And we're political, already! We missed you, Jon... Aww... I missed you guys, too. I just wanted to check in and give an update on where my head is at the moment. Spoiler Alert: This post might get a bit heavy... A number of... situations, I'll call them... are affecting me recently. For starters... Okay, [...]

The Jack of all Tirades: Characters: Jeff (and Daisy)

"Mew!""Hey, Jon... You got a second?" Jeff is Jon's father, who always seems to be asking a ridiculous favor from Jon at the worst times. Though Jon always tries to hide from him, Jeff always seems to find his son. Daisy is a cat. Pet the kitty...

The Jack of all Tirades: Characters: Randy

"Win five dollars a month for life? How can I lose?" Randy is Jon's friendly rival who will mischievously get into trouble with Jon from time to time. He means well, but doesn't always think ahead to the full picture, much to Jim's annoyance. Also, he's an enthusiastic workaholic.

The Jack of all Tirades: Characters: Jim

"Uh... What?" Jim is Jon's best friend and keeper of the peace. An aspiring police officer, Jim juggles Jon's idiosyncrasies with Randy's antics, all while trying to keep Jon's and Jeff's father-son relationship as healthy as possible. Good luck with that last one... 

The Jack of all Tirades: Characters: Jon

"Hellooo..." Jon is our eyes and ears for the series. He calls it as he sees it. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? That remains to be seen. He may be autistic, but that suits him just fine. Also, do NOT ask him what being autistic is like.... I mean, unless you want to [...]

I’m So Excited to Post This, I Don’t Even Have a Title Picked Out Yet…

Okay, so maybe some of you have seen my recent string of tweets alluding to this post. If you haven't, get on that. This is important. Also, just to provide a quick unrelated update on that WEGO Health Awards nomination, I was not a finalist, but I appreciate the endorsements I received. It means the [...]

When Does Empathy Border on the Pathological?

When last I wrote on the blog, I mentioned there might be a couple months without content due to the process of moving. Well, now I'm knee-deep in the process of putting stuff away in my new home. So during a recent, much-needed therapy session, I revealed an aspect of myself that leads into today's Million-Dollar [...]

The Role Star: PSA (The Definition of Insanity)

https://vimeo.com/257378542 In this PSA Jon makes an empassioned plea for lawmakers to do something ANYTHING to stop the endless cycle of gun-related violence destroying the lives of our youth. Since this is a Jon Dorfman video it will be posted to both The Aspie Dialogues AND Crazy Good Studios websites. TL;DR: Jon sides with the [...]

PSA: Words Defy Me…

Now I know how Mom felt when I was 15; I'm stunned speechless. But, because a former Scientologist saw the Tide Pod Challenge (DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THAT, BY THE WAY) and said, "Hold my beer," I don't have that option anymore. Apparently, some desperate parents out there have decided that The Great Schism of [...]
