Welcome aboard friends and travellers alike to the LightTrain! I’m your conductor, but you can call me Gavin if you prefer. I am open to feedback on my features so I can improve upon it.
I have a fixation with film and cartooning, and those things combined with my great writing and a unconvincing backstory make Lighttrain! My favorite things include most films from the late 60s and throughout the 70s, a good slice of cornbread (or a pan for that matter!), people, comic books and writing for you guys! I’m a sucker for the blend of the whimsical and dark humour. I play games like X-wing and Dungeons and Dragons often, as well. For my taste in music, I adore such bands as: The Postal Service, Death Cab for Cutie, Explosions in the Sky, El Ten Eleven, They Might be Giants, Flight of the Conchords, Of Monsters and Men, Modest Mouse, Dokken, The Black Keys, She & Him and The Lumineers.
The Lighttrain isn’t all film though. We also occasionally cover games, books, magazines, television and such. Every Thursday is a new post, so stay tuned! Our shows include Reviews, which are exactly what they sound like; Out of Order, a monthly series usually counting down a top ten list of covering lost media; and some updates every month, short stories, art and events sprinkled in there as well.
Thank you for reading and maybe check out a review if you would like to. And if you choose to follow the train by punching yourself a ticket then thank you again for supporting my work. Have a excellent rest of your day.
