The Simplicity of “I’m Sorry”

You live long enough and you eventually learn the importance of integrity in people.  At the same time, you also learn that people are far from perfect and that many, many times they tend to make mistakes.  The concept of flawed human beings came late in my teens when I...

Lack of Blogging and ONE BIG ASS BURGER

I’ve been swamped.  Anime Weekend Atlanta.  Planning InvaderCON.  Finding Sailor Moon.  Day job stuff.  Family stuff. I’m behind.  I still have Man v. Food posts to make.  I have paragraphs of epic awesome to type. I’m just exhausted. Next weekend… maybe.  For now: I ate another one of these things...

My Boring Ass Life Last Year: 2010 In Review

Ate a giant burger at The Vortex in Atlanta, Georgia.  This was the beginning of my Man v. Food pilgrimage that would take me to eight different restaurants! Saw snow again for the first time in years. Blogged about bad service and got the attention of Ford Motor Company. Showed...

BEAST WARS SUCKS but does #Transformers Prime suck too? (Read on!)

[SPOILER ALERT!] If you haven’t watched the five part Transformers: Prime story “Darkness Rising” and you happen to be into the whole robots in disguise thing, well, you may not want to read this yet.   Plot points will be discussed that can be considered all spoilery and stuff.  Consider...

Anime Weekend Atlanta wants you to get cancer. 4

Anime Weekend Atlanta wants you to get cancer.

Last weekend I went to Anime Weekend Atlanta with the team from Wasabi Anime.  While there, we hosted a number of events including the now (in)famous DARE! The Transformers Panel Ultimate! Overall the event was a success and our events were well received by everyone who attended them. For those...

Where the F*** is the rest of the F***ing #DragonCon review? 1

Where the F*** is the rest of the F***ing #DragonCon review?

Yes, I said there were three parts in my last post. No, I haven’t had time to finish them. Yes, I will post them soon. Yes, I still need to write the story of our visit to have chicken and waffles in Atlanta. Yes, I need to add my Dragon*Con...

The Silence Before The Storm (@Dragon_Con, @AWAcon & @FLSuperCon)

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...

The Ballad of #BotCon continues… 32

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...

Geek Convention Roundup

I’m taking a trip to Cancun this week – so my blogging will be (and already is becoming) a little spotty.  Here’s a quick entry, though, regarding all the geek goodness that has been going on. Florida Supercon is less than three weeks away.  It’s is absolutely astounding to see...

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...

My Name is Tom Croom and…

it has been almost a week since my last post. The reason (aka “excuse”) is that I’ve been swamped with writing updates for another blog style website I pen things for. Then there was the whole driving to Atlanta last weekend for some zany convention. Tomorrow I head to Orlando...

Working weekend relapse… 3

Working weekend relapse…

So this past weekend was spent watching thirteen episodes of Torchwood in order to catch up with Shannon.  While doing so, I took the time to back up over 30 DVDs worth (over 100 gigs) of old video files.  There is still a long way to go… But the desktop...

Upcoming weekends…

So here we are folks… the second half of 2009, and it looks like my calendar is starting to fill up faster than I can keep sorted in my head – so I’m writing it out (again.) AUG 7-9… Shannon’s Birthday BBQ AUG 14-16… FetishCon in Tampa? AUG 21-23… AUG...
