Review: The City of Falling Angels

The City of Falling Angels by John Berendt My rating: 2 of 5 stars My wife LOVES Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. When we met, I had neither read the book or watched the movie. Since she brought it up enough while we were dating, I decided...

Flickr Friday: One of the main reasons I live in Florida…

I’ll never see this in the morning outside of my house.  Ever. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each Friday I post one on my blog from my collection that I think is icy cool. You can see the complete set this...

Review: The Downhill Lie: A Hacker’s Return to a Ruinous Sport

The Downhill Lie: A Hacker’s Return to a Ruinous Sport by Carl Hiaasen My rating: 2 of 5 stars Maybe I’m missing the fun because I’m not a fan of golf – but this reads like a cleverly witty but mostly mundane blog. Being a fan of Hiaasen’s fictional Florida,...

Flickr Friday: The Wizard of Oz – on crack – in the eighties.

I took this photo at the Indian River County Fair.  It was on the side of a ride there.  It is… different. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each Friday I post one on my blog from my collection that I think...

Review: Double Whammy

Double Whammy by Carl Hiaasen My rating: 3 of 5 stars Angry Eighties Carl Hiaasen is the best! I moved to Florida in the late eighties, so reading these books is like a trip down memory lane. The thing is, I was too young to note all that was happening...

So @BotCon aka “#BotFAIL” showed up on my radar again today. How long have they been doing cons? 1

So @BotCon aka “#BotFAIL” showed up on my radar again today. How long have they been doing cons?

Everyone makes mistakes. Wasabi Anime (Green Mustard Entertainment) has been designing and hosting conventions and events since 2001.  In that time we’ve had our fair share of “oops” moments.  You’d think, though, that the “professionals” would be a little more polished than us at this point.  You see, when you...

Flickr Friday: A truly geeky trunk.

A few months back, Joey Snackpants and I undertook a college tour across Atlanta to promote InvaderCON.  We bought stuff along the way and my trunk began to look like a geek convention fan explosion. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each...

Watching old 1930s Disney Cartoons on YouTube tonight. Yup. NOTHING made sense then either. 0

Watching old 1930s Disney Cartoons on YouTube tonight. Yup. NOTHING made sense then either.

Mickey steals corn. BEING A THIEF IS OKAY! Mickey and Goofy steals milk. BEING A THIEF IS AWESOME! Donald takes a bath… with a shirt on. Donald gets embarassed in the bath when birds fly in and see him… with a shirt on – but no pants.  In a bathtub....

Review: Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health

Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health by L. Ron Hubbard My rating: 2 of 5 stars I was raised Roman Catholic as a child. Years of nuns and private schools armed me with ammunition needed to argue the Christian religion with an informed opinion. I make a big deal...

Flickr Friday: Have you ever seen a menu on a football?

I have.  Shula’s in South Beach in Miami, Florida. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each Friday I post one on my blog from my collection that I think is sportstacular. You can see the complete set this photo is from here.

The Story of Red vs. Blue (@RoosterTeeth) at DreamCon in Jacksonville, Florida

So I woke up this morning and saw (via Facebook) that Gus from Red vs. Blue has posted a blog post about the first RvB convention appearance.  The post included the photos I uploaded last week from the event in question: DreamCon. (Click the photo for the complete set.) After reading...

Review: Devil Bones

Devil Bones by Kathy Reichs My rating: 3 of 5 stars I have read only three of the Temperance Brennan novels (the other two being Bones to Ashes and Break No Bones. As I’ve stated in the previous two reviews, I am a fan of the Bones television series, but...

Blogging from the Beach

Ain’t technology grand? I’m chilling at the beach with Buffett playing in my ear on my iPod (Buffet Hotel, for those who are wondering.)  Shannon is reading Tina Fey’s book on the awesome Nook that Joey Snackpants got me for Christmas. And I’m typing this blog post on my phone....
