Bennett's account was at least partially confirmed by TMZ, and even the NFL commissioner issued a statement regarding the event. All of this is amplified by Bennett's refusal to stand during the national anthem before games.

I don't agree with 100% of the NFL's decisions, but this was absolutely the right call.

NYC Set Locations: Marvel’s Iron Fist http://www.nickkelly.com/2017/04/10/nyc-set-locations-iron-fist/ Mon, 10 Apr 2017 09:33:02 +0000 http://www.nickkelly.com/?p=1952 We're back in New York and this time around, we're hanging out in Chinatown. Fortunately for us, we happen to be very close to some of the set locations for one of our recently watched shows. It turns out we were just blocks away from not one, not two, but three locations used in Marvel's Iron Fist. The most recent in Netflix's series of Marvel heroes, Iron Fist tells the story of Danny Rand (Finn Jones.)

Cover Reveal: Lauren Harris’ “Unleash” http://www.nickkelly.com/2017/04/05/cover-reveal-lauren-harris-unleash/ Wed, 05 Apr 2017 09:36:06 +0000 http://www.nickkelly.com/?p=1941 A deadly price for freedom. A power she can't control.

Helena Martin doesn't know who she hates more, the sorcerers who fired the magic-laced bullet or the gang-lord master who used her mother as a shield. Both hunt the remnants of her pack and the only way Helena can protect them is using her newly-unleashed magic to lead the two factions away.

Happy Hour from the Tower – A Destiny Podcast http://www.nickkelly.com/2017/03/16/happy-hour-tower-destiny-podcast/ Thu, 16 Mar 2017 09:26:01 +0000 http://www.nickkelly.com/?p=1934 Friends, family, gamers! We have a new Destiny-themed podcast. It seems my esteemed colleague Tee Morris (of the award-winning Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences steampunk books) got an itch for us to podcast. As you've heard me say, podcasting is a gateway drug. Tee already co-hosts The Shared Desk with his lovely wife, Pip Ballantine. I'm already co-host of the Geek Wolfpack Podcast with Stacia and Brandon. So, this one is not a major time sink. Each episode is 30 minutes of Destiny-filled goodness, with Tee, Brandon and me waxing poetic. If you're looking for gamers who take themselves seriously, we're not the podcast for you.
