Man v. Food Adventure Update: El Tepeyac Cafe in #LosAngeles

Another Man v. Food update already?  Yup!  I managed to get to the elusive third MvF location in Los Angeles (after years of visiting the city) when I was in town for Anime Los Angeles a few weeks ago: El Tepeyac. This place was totally East L.A. – and that added...

The blog post where Tom Croom talks about Gun Control.

I don’t really delve into politics that much on my blog for a variety of reasons.  I have good friends that sit on both sides of the gun control argument: card carrying NRA folks and anti-violence/anti-weapon minded individuals.  Personally, I see points in both sides of the argument; hence my...

Adventures in Los Angeles: The Die Hard Building (Nakatomi Tower)

So I’m here in Los Angeles for Project Anime and Anime Expo 2015.  As is “the norm” in my life, when I go out on these trips I attempt to take time to see local sites of interest… Or, at least, of interest to me. Last night Joey Snackpants and I...

Tonight is my last night in San Francisco – AFTER ONE HELL OF A WEEKEND.

Dear Internet, I have so much to tell you.  This past week has been a whirlwind of anime companies, Man v. Food adventures, bridges, trolleys, Silicon Valley, and GBikes. Yes, GBikes. As in, “Shannon and I borrowed a couple of Google company bikes and rode them around the Googleplex office...

Where IS that damn kid! Fun with #BackToTheFuture in #California

This past weekend, I flew to California to initial planning on Project Anime 2013.  My trips are pretty standardized now and involve almost NO sleep on my part.  This is, in part, because staying up late and not sleeping makes it easier to pass out exhausted when I return to...

My InvaderCON Adventure in California (as told by Instagram.)

Good morning from sunny and humid South Florida.  Spare time has NOT been a luxury I have had lately, so my blog posts have been few and far between.  The good news, though, is that my blogging has slowed down because my active life in the fan community has been...

Adventures with Food in California

Before leaving for Japan in March, I took another trip to Los Angeles to attend meetings for Project Anime.  While there, I fit in a couple of exciting meals local to the area.  First was an insanely unique Asian pastry place called the 85°C Bakery Cafe (http://www.85cafe.us/).  We went there...
