Working Out with DOCTOR WHO: Planet of the Spiders (3rd Doctor) 13

Working Out with DOCTOR WHO: Planet of the Spiders (3rd Doctor)

You’d think that iTunes would have somehow put these in something close to chronological order… but where would the fun be in that, right? Doctor Who: Planet of the Spiders (from iTunes): The Doctor’s past has caught up with him, and now he must risk death to save the universe from...

Thought for the night regarding the #BotCon staff & fans returning to my blog… 11

Thought for the night regarding the #BotCon staff & fans returning to my blog…

You know, if BotCon truly is such a GREAT convention AND you think that the review from Joey Snackpants and I penned was wrong because we “didn’t spend enough time” there – wouldn’t it make sense to want us to come back and experience it again to see if we...

Working Out with DOCTOR WHO: The Time Warrior (3rd Doctor) 2

Working Out with DOCTOR WHO: The Time Warrior (3rd Doctor)

or “Spotting Star Wars Characters in Doctor Who #1: Boba Fett” Yeah… that’s Jeremy Bulloch totally rocking that mullet. The Time Warrior was my (pleasant) introduction to the 3rd Doctor: Jon Pertwee.  Thus far, he has proven to be my favorite with his dry British humor and Austin Powers flair....

Working Out with DOCTOR WHO: The Krotons (2nd Doctor) 3

Working Out with DOCTOR WHO: The Krotons (2nd Doctor)

Since the early nineties, I’ve always watched the geek feuds explode over Kirk vs. Picard.  The battle expanded as additional television series kept getting added to the Star Trek universe and now you can technically argue “who is the better captain”? Kirk vs. Picard vs. Sisko vs. Janeway vs. Archer...

The beginning of August was pretty damn busy.  Wasabi Anime made an amazing appearance at Gen Con in Indianapolis, Indiana.  The rest of the month, though, has been (happily) convention free. Sometimes staying at home CAN be a vacation. Next month seems to be stacking up fairly fast.  My weekends...

I’m still alive…

My time for typing out the details of my life and random Interwebz fun has been very, very limited lately.  I know.  It sucks. Just know that I am healthy, doing well, still breathing and watching Dragnet (1987) while I type this.

Deep in Thought

This past weekend was both EPIC and EPIC FAIL and too many levels to describe.  The reality of it, though, is that I’m left with having to evaluate the Wasabiverse, future projects and other satellite topics surrounding it all.  I’ve accomplished not dwelling on it too much thanks to a...

As #GenCon Draws to a close…

This weekend was an epic undertaking.  Kudos to the team from Wasabi Anime and the Mint Chocolate Chippies for some outstanding work these past four days.  Also, a big congrats to the folks at Cosplay Deviants for hosting a couple of tremendously successful events over the last two evenings. There...

The @JoeySnackpants Rules for Life… 3

The @JoeySnackpants Rules for Life…

A number of things happened last night here at Gen Con which brought to mind (at least to me) Mr. Snackpants’ rules for life (which can all be read here.) This one, though, sticks out the most in my mind for folks regarding things yesterday evening. 25. Do not be...

So How Did My First Day of #GenCon Go? Read on…

This weekend I am in Indianapolis, Indiana in an attempt to take Shannon to one more city we have never been to so she can buy another Hard Rock Cafe teddy bear, thus bringing the collection to 24 bears. Oh yeah, and there’s some sort of gaming convention going on...

Blog Post at 30,000 Feet (for real!)

Technology keeps getting more and more interesting (and fun) each year. Proof of this (at least to me) is the fact that I’m typing this from Airtran Flight #370 to Indianapolis, Indiana on my way to GenCon. Yup – Internet on a plane.  (MUCH better than finding snakes on a...

You want me to do WHAT with the Nintendo Power Glove? (w/ thanks to @CarolZara)

Fellow Twitterer (I think that’s a real word) and blogger Carol Zara from Digitally Blonde posted this yesterday.  I’m still disturbed.
