My lovely wife Adrienne came up with the idea of the Western Movement Beat. It's a line from a magnificent poem by Walt Whitman called "Pioneers! O Pioneers!" It's about exploration and discovery in the far west. And, that is also the point of this site. I'm using it to share photos, stuff I like or find interesting, nerdy sci-fi and horror related things, books, music, current projects, and as a way to begin a conversation. I'm glad you're here. Follow Adrienne's Western Movement Beat.
