My @BotCon/#Transformers infamy got me recognized… at @TheHukilau?!

Lead a strange enough life and stranger things will eventually happen. I went to the Hukilau in Fort Lauderdale a couple of weekends ago to help promote PinUpalooza 2015.  Daytime programming at the well known tiki convention was a little light, so I found myself walking around the vendors room (which...

Conventions, Running, Working, & my missed birthday last December.

This week has been awesome.  Seriously.  I’ve barely slept; I’ve been working my ass off; projects that have been behind are getting caught up; and I’ve even had time to do some recreational reading.  For the five of you paying close attention, I cited Monday that it was my return to normalcy....

The Phantom Tollbooth movie – does anyone else remember this?

I’m actually subscribed to a couple of YouTube channels that I look at every other day.  One of them is called WatchMojo.  Basically, it’s a “Top 10” site that takes suggestions for top ten list ideas (usually centered around entertainment and pop culture) and then creates them.  I’ll occasionally put...

Hey #California Humans! I’m going to be at @AnimeExpo in a couple of weeks.

That’s right, folks.  I’m heading back to Los Angeles for the first time since last year.  I’ll be in there attending Project Anime with a bunch of other anime convention runner types and then partaking in the largest anime convention in the United States. Hell, I might even host a panel...

Help! Recommend a Good Book (please!)

In the mid-2000s, I found that I was spending more and more time in my car going to and from Orlando and Miami (from Vero Beach) in order to get work done on various convention related projects.  In order to make better use of my time, I started listening to...

Last Weekend was @TheHukilau in Fort Lauderdale.

Today kicks off life attempting (yet again) to have some semblance of order again, so I’m going back to doing “normal” things.  Like, you know, blogging. It would take me forever to try to recount all that’s happened since November, so it makes more sense to just go back to the...

Happy Father’s Day

I still live under the assumption that, somehow, the old man still reads my blog. Happy Father’s Day, dad.  I miss you.

For those of you that weren’t at the wedding last weekend…

Shannon has had me slaving over my PC to VCR rig during the past couple of months doing video capture of old VHS tapes from her childhood to find footage of her and her sister together.  She and her MacBook took that footage and made this video: Showing this at the...

OH HAI INTERNET! How have you been?

I keep showing up time and time again to blog about “things getting back to normal.”  The honest answer, though, is I don’t think there is any more “normal” in my future.  Last summer, I shifted (unexpectedly) into working on GME projects full time.  Once I hit my stride after...
