The Vegas Vacation Part I: NeonCon & The Tropicana 2

The Vegas Vacation Part I: NeonCon & The Tropicana

So how did I wind up in Vegas?  I’ll make this part straight to the point: Wasabi Anime appeared at Gen Con this year. Instead of a Wasabi Anime table in the dealers room, we opted to let the Mint Chocolate Chippies promote during the convention. Gamers, it seems, love...

Thanksgiving, Hiking Recovery, and the recent Blank Blogness

Good morning! As I write this, I have just finished catching up on reading all the articles that accumulated on my Google Reader.  I didn’t have much idle time while in Las Vegas for reading, so it got pretty backed up.  Fun fact: Google Reader stops counting at one thousand...

Review: Dune 1

Review: Dune

NOTE: In my never ending quest to play with more social networking toys, I stumbled upon a site called Goodreads.  It keeps track of books you read and, when you write reviews, allows you to automatically publish them directly to your blog.  Pretty cool.  I finished Dune last weekend and...

Flickr Friday: I’m (not) on a Boat! 1

Flickr Friday: I’m (not) on a Boat!

I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  In doing so, I get to revisit a lot of photos I’ve taken while travelling.  Each Friday, I plan on posting a photo that I think is interesting. Maybe you’ll think so, too. 🙂 Fun...

Tom Croom’s BirthdayCon 2010: Dinosaur World (and you’re invited!) 6

Tom Croom’s BirthdayCon 2010: Dinosaur World (and you’re invited!)

I’m a sucker for tourist attractions.  Many of my blog posts and photos tell the story of my strange fascination with places ranging from the cheesy (South of the Border) to the historical (Route 66) all around the world.  The great state of Florida is home to some of the...

Las Vegas is ALSO a Small World after all! 2

Las Vegas is ALSO a Small World after all!

Good morning. (It’s still morning here… though, in Vegas, you can never be sure.) We’re working on our plan for the day in Vegas.  Today is our last day spent on the strip before driving over to the Grand Canyon for a couple of days so we’re looking to do...

So I watched the movie Swingers on my flight to Vegas tonight… 0

So I watched the movie Swingers on my flight to Vegas tonight…

It’s strange, but I seem to have inadvertantly started a personal tradition.  The first time I flew to Las Vegas a few years ago I killed time on the flight by watching a movie about Vegas: Ocean’s 13.  It wasn’t the greatest film, but it certainly wasn’t the worst. The...

I need some Las Vegas suggestions… 1

I need some Las Vegas suggestions…

I will be in Vegas next week for a Wasabi Anime appearance at NeonCon.  After the convention, I will have a few days to kill around town. (I plan on watching the MvF episode in Las Vegas tonight.) Any suggestions for things I must see?
