That convention over in Tampa…

So there has been a lot of Internet buzz in the past 24 hours about a certain convention owner/chair/CEO for a certain anime convention that takes place in the western part of the state of Florida. Since I’m getting asked so much about it (emails, phone calls, etc.) I’ve decided...

Behold the power of Facebook… 0

Behold the power of Facebook…

Have you heard the one about how social networking is destroying IRL (“in real life”) person to person interaction? There are articles that pop up from time to time about the evils of Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and the like – and to be honest, it tends to get annoying. Social...

Casting of the Pods… 2

Casting of the Pods…

In case you missed it over the weekend, we quietly started work on bringing back the Snack Time Online pop culture podcast.  The episode that is posted is number “episode zero” because it is a test to see how well integrating live calls works. Yup.  We took live unscheduled calls...

Social Networking connect the dots…

So I checked into the “wiring” of all the social network type websites I am plugged into. Here’s how it all works thus far: I update Blogger (TomCroom.com) and, when I do, the info then feeds into HootSuite. At the same time, Blogger also updates LiveJournal. HootSuite then updates Twitter...

Fringe – The X-Files 2.0?

I started watching Fringe last season and after three episodes stopped. I explained to my wife that while the show was clever – I like it better in the nineties when they called it the X-Files. Oh yeah – and Agent Scully is MUCH hotter than Agent Dunham. For those...

Autographs of folks we’ve met…

My wife and I were sitting in my office yesterday morning and we started talking about all the autographed photos we have hanging on the wall – so I figured the list was long enough to include blog entry. As a bonus, I’ve even included signed books (noted accordingly.) Keep...

The Things We Do for Charity…

This took place in an office event today to raise money for the Alzheimer and Parkinson Association of Indian River County (www.alzpark.org). Employees got to buy and throw pies at the managers in the building. Feel free to point and laugh – I did. 🙂

Since Snackpants posted a Star Trek post…

Check out this chart: It is important to note that Star Trek V is NOT the lowest grossing of the films.

100 TV Spoilers…

I stumbled onto this on YouTube. Clever, inventive and I had forgotten about the St. Elsewhere one (and never knew the one about Roseanne.) EDIT: Here’s the “Movie” version. Just as clever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hN5avIvylDw

Animation SuperCon’s promoter to join WWE?

You see that? Mike Broder from Animation SuperCon abuses the hell out of his talent and vendors! (insert laugh track) All kidding aside, myself and the crew of Wasabi Anime had a great time hosting events and hanging out at this past weekend’s Animation SuperCon in Miami, Florida. (More photos...

Animation SuperCon in Miami, Florida

Have I mentioned lately that the ability to post blog entries from email is awesome… and even MORE awesome since I can do it from my phone. Consider it mentioned (again). We’re relaxing at the Wasabi Anime table in the exhibitor’s room at Animation SuperCon (www.animationsupercon.com) and watching the kids...
