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...

Blogs, Beast Wars and Writing About Nothing 1

Blogs, Beast Wars and Writing About Nothing

I was asked recently why I blog because, to the person I was talking to, it seemed like a waste of time.  I quickly answered with my own question: “I’m not sure, but how much time have you wasted in your life watching football on television?” Now, I’m not dogging...

BirthdayCon 2010 at Dinosaur World in Plant City, Florida – and a new tradition!

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...

Thought for the night regarding the #BotCon staff & fans returning to my blog… 11

Thought for the night regarding the #BotCon staff & fans returning to my blog…

You know, if BotCon truly is such a GREAT convention AND you think that the review from Joey Snackpants and I penned was wrong because we “didn’t spend enough time” there – wouldn’t it make sense to want us to come back and experience it again to see if we...

So How Did My First Day of #GenCon Go? Read on…

This weekend I am in Indianapolis, Indiana in an attempt to take Shannon to one more city we have never been to so she can buy another Hard Rock Cafe teddy bear, thus bringing the collection to 24 bears. Oh yeah, and there’s some sort of gaming convention going on...

Your Favorite Video Game SUCKS! (according to some guy on YouTube) 2

Your Favorite Video Game SUCKS! (according to some guy on YouTube)

So remember the video we took of Joey Snackpants meeting Peter Cullen – the voice of Optimus Prime?  (If not, click here.) WELL, it seems someone is pissed at us for… well, I can’t be sure.  I want to assume this is another “bot-tard” (a nickname someone fed me in...

FINALLY! The kids from [insert webcomic here] have finally gone home; now for #GenCon 5

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...

Beast Wars may suck, but Dinosaur Ridge DIDN’T! 0

Beast Wars may suck, but Dinosaur Ridge DIDN’T!

This post has nothing to do with Transformers, but throwing in a Beast Wars title after last week’s hubbub was too easy to pass up. My father-in-law LOVES dinosaurs.  The man’s home office contains books, statues and toys of all kinds of dinosaurs; some of them older than me.  That...

Are we still taking about #Botcon, BotFAIL and Beast Wars? You betcha!

Seriously. I really thought this would be over by now. I should be posting more stories from my weekend in Colorado… but I guess not. LOL I am reposting part of my reply I made to someone in one of my other posts as part of this update to address...

Okay #BotCon & Beast Wars fans… here’s your chance. 52

Okay #BotCon & Beast Wars fans… here’s your chance.

UPDATE: Would you like to see fanboys arguing the stuff in this thread, including WHY BEAST WARS SUCKS, live and in person?  CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS! So – the argument seems to have shifted from “Tom & Joey suck because they hate BotCon” to “Tom & Joey suck because they...

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...

You can take a girl out of the mountains, but…

I am in Colorado for the next couple of days for business.  Each year I come out here and fall in love with the breathtaking view and take some time for white water rafting.  (The pic in this post is taken from the view from my hotel room.)  Don’t get...
