I believe it’s important to play. When children play they practice essential life skills and, if they’re school-aged, they experience their academic lessons firsthand in the real world. Playing is also important exercise for adults to achieve greater empathy, learn new content, and develop more sophisticated problem solving skills.

The Cranial Gunk blog is me playing so I can learn the lessons and develop the skills I mentioned. My play usually results in reviews of books, movies, TV, video games, and experiences that I want to explore further. My writing has been published in Rice Daddies, an Asian American fatherhood blog, the Asian American Literary Review’s Local/Express, which explored Asian American activism in the 90’s, and Nuyorasian, an anthology of New York Asian American writers.

If you have content you would like me to review, please send your request and a brief description (including deadlines) to vincent(at)cranialgunk(dot)com
