Go Watch “Free Enterprise” Right Now

Stop whatever the hell you are doing right now and go watch the movie, “Free Enterprise“.  At work right now?  Screw it. Tell them you’re violently ill and need to go home.  Already seen the movie?  Then you know what I’m talking about.  Go celebrate 10 years of this masterpiece!  Go watch it already!  Geez… […]


Wonder Woman – Why I Don’t Really Care

A recent post on my friend Erika’s blog, “I Don’t Read My Blog Either“, got me thinking about the character of Wonder Woman.  Quick aside before I get into WW, I gotta say that is a brilliant name for a blog!  Hats off to Erika on that! Here we go… I don’t think very highly […]

DragonCon Day 3 – Michael Dorn, Michael Rosenbaum, and Firestorm

SUNDAY Sunday was a nice and easy day as compared to Saturday.  There weren’t a whole bunch of panels I was anxious to see that day, and ultimately ended up not attending any panels.  Instead I spent a whole bunch of time going through the Dealer Room’s, Exhibitor Room, the Celebrity Walk of Fame, and taking […]


Sorry, no post today…

Exhaustion triumphed over me last night.  Getting 3 hours of sleep for several days in a row finally caught up with me.  I passed out rocking my daughter to sleep last night.  I usually write all my posts VERY late at night and schedule them for the next morning. Come back next week for my recap […]

DragonCon Day 2 – The Days Are Just Packed

SATURDAY As I write this blog entry, I’m realizing just how seriously crammed-full Saturday was.  What a blast of a day! We survived the night packed like sardines in our room.  There was myself, Serv, Race, Jon, Ravenface, and Shockwave all sharing “Harvey Dent’s Room”.  It was a little cramped. After showers, Jon, Race, and […]


I Survived DragonCon

The good news is that I survived DragonCon.  The bad news is that I’m having trouble re-acclimatizing to regular life.  After being completely immersed in geekdom for four straight days, it’s a little hard to suddenly be transported from the wild to “civilized” society. I had a fantastic time!  This was definitely one of the […]
