My ANNUAL LIST of FLORIDA GEEK EVENTS 2017

While I don’t blog as much as I used to, some traditions will just never die.  (Mainly because they are linked to my job in some what/shape/form.)  So, without further ado, here is my annual list of geek events in Florida that I’ve found for 2017.  As with last year,...

My ANNUAL LIST of FLORIDA GEEK EVENTS 2016

YOU CAN FIND THE UPDATED 2016 LIST ON THIS POST: http://www.tomcroom.com/archives/11150 (I won’t be updating this specific post anymore.  Thanks!) The tradition continues!  Since the late 2000s, I have been posting a list of all the “geek” style events in my home state of Florida.  Why, you ask?  There are a...

My ANNUAL LIST of FLORIDA GEEK CONVENTIONS 2013

Each year (well… almost – I think I skipped last year) I take the time to look at how many geek conventions currently exist “on the scene” in the land of Florida.  This was originally a list of only anime cons but with so many cons “featuring anime, too!” the...

I suppose if @AFOUpdate & @FloridaAnime Experience had a kid, this would happen.

Advertising is, at times, an art form.  It is the ability to connect with another human being through the concept of familiarity coupled with clever presentation.  Creating an ad for something sometimes allows a person to avail a product to more people allowing for that connection to thrive. What better...

The LiveJournal Project: August 2003

Another post as we hop, skip and jump down memory lane through the tubes of the Internet.  What the hell were we talking about online eight years ago?  It would seem the topics included Anime Festival Orlando 4, getting a new dog (Karma the Dog,) and my grandfather getting close...

The LiveJournal Project: July 2003 (Part 2 of 2)

I haven’t picked this up in some months, but this morning seemed like a good enough time to revisit The LiveJournal Project.  In short: When I started blogging, it was on a website called LiveJournal (yes – the same website for those of you that were paying close attention at...

The LiveJournal Project: July 2003 (Part 1 of 2)

Yikes… I had 21 posts in 2003.  It’ll take a bit of time to restore/fix some of these, so I’m making public the half I have done: Happy Birthday Shannon! (NOTE: My then girlfriend, now wife, turns the ripe old age of 23.) SHAMELESS PLUG POST! (NOTE: This post was...

FINALLY! The kids from [insert webcomic here] have finally gone home; now for #GenCon

I have been insanely occupied with about a thousand and one things in the past week. My wife celebrated her birthday this past weekend and, if my sister-in-law can get me the photos, I will do a write up regarding the masterpiece of planning I pulled off with that. Things...

The Ballad of #BotCon continues…

I got back from Colorado late last night, and I’ve been swamped with getting things together for about a dozen projects.  Plus, I have a bunch of great photos to post and (to top it all off) the A/C is broken in the house.  True story.  It died while we...

Have Wasabi, Will Travel.

Just a short note to update the world to my well being and the amount of things that keep me busy in life. Last weekend (the 4th of July) was my first weekend staying home in over a month – and things are picking up again. Here is, in no...

(BotCon) Bigger isn’t always better, kids! 52

(BotCon) Bigger isn’t always better, kids!

In December of 2009, I took the time to send an email to the organizers of BotCon 2010 about the possibility of bringing “DARE! The Transformers Panel Ultimate” to their convention.  For those of you that are not as entrenched in the fan convention scene: my pal Joey Snackpants and...

Bad blogger, Fox 35 news, and the busy busy life of Tom…

First off – yes.  I know.  I have been terrible at updating my blog recently.  [INSERT CLEVER SELF-DEPRECATING HUMOROUS COMMENT HERE]. Instead of going on and on about how busy my life has been in the past twenty seven days (pause for dramatic “yes it really has been that long”...

Two weeks later…

So you may have noticed that I’ve moved the blog off of Blogger and over to its own WordPress installation.  That is because WordPress has finally worked in many of the features I first liked about Blogger back in 2008… so here we are. In case you didn’t read on...
