People who make letters into things


Come for the words, stay for the stories

Ironclad Words was started by Nick Mazmanian as a place to host his thoughts, mad as they might be, and release them onto an unsuspecting world. You’ll find explorations into narrative, breakdowns of popular and classic films, and other stories of interest.

Here’s what you can find while exploring the site:

  • Personal stories
  • Flash fiction
  • Movie, book, and video game reviews
  • Analysis of movies, books, or video games
  • Podcasts of a ridiculous nature
  • Jimmy Hoffa’s body (Does that joke still register?)
  • And sometimes, mild cases of insanity

We hope you enjoy your time here and if you find something you like, share it!

Ironic enjoyment is not enjoyment at all. Be optimistic. Pessimism will keep you at arm’s length from enjoying things. Don’t talk during movies. Save it for after.

When not writing and holding down a job I am raising two boys. When I get a break from my job and my boys I am probably watching a movie. My Video Watchdog subscription both pre and posts dates my marriage.
