Steve Carlson 2010

Rules and Regulations

Steve does not have a lot of time on his hands. Mostly, he works. After that, he watches movies. Sometimes, he writes, either at his blog or at In Review Online. Once a month, he puts together the Bad Idea Podcast with a seedy fellow named Simon Abrams. The rest is sleeping and drinking. Some day, he'll find a way to do both of those last things at the same time.
