Hitting the Reset Button

I am writing this from the future. No, really.  I am. You see – this post is dated January 12th – but I’m really writing it on January 16th and backdating it.  It’ll post today (the 16th) and you’re reading it today, but it is (from a narrative point a...

4 States for 5 Conventions in 6 Weeks (is almost over!)

This, ladies and gentlemen, has been an insanely busy summer.  Seriously. I mean, my car is DIRTY and my house needs cleaning.  Those of you close to my life in the real world know that THIS NEVER HAPPENS!  I just haven’t had time.  I’ve barely had time to sleep.  The...

The Year in Review or “WTF HAPPENED IN 2012?”

This is that time of year when folks begin posting about how this year they’re planning on changing a zillion things and making thinks different somehow.  For me, though, I’m not looking forward to changing… I’m looking forward to continuing. 2012 was a hard year, but that’s not a bad thing....

I’m flying home from #GenCon – that convention about gaming and stuff. 0

I’m flying home from #GenCon – that convention about gaming and stuff.

This was my third year going to Gen Con to host anime panels and related events… at a gaming convention.  As odd as that sounds, it make perfect sense if you ever go TO Gen Con.  The convention is a 45 year old- That’s not a typo; the convention is...

Last day of #GenCon. Damn, folks. I’m tired! 0

Last day of #GenCon. Damn, folks. I’m tired!

Yesterday was a blur. I had panels practically back to back starting at 10:00 AM and (happily) all of them were VERY well received by anime fans at Gen Con.  Well… almost all of them.  There were some pissed of Beast Wars fans (as usual.) 🙂 After busting our asses...

It’s Saturday. It’s #GenCon & (bonus!) some @ManvFood love. Also: Check out @TentacleChris & @CosplayDeviants!

Yesterday was a whirlwind of a day.  Going on an obvious lack of sleep from the hotel situation the night before, I pressed on with the help of Starbucks and 5 Hour Energy shots.  The photo above is one of the last things I remember before heading to my room...

The morning after; Back at the Westin; Welcome to the #GenCon Anime Track!

The photo in this post was taken from my current point of view this morning: the Wasabi Anime table at the Westin overlooking the anime events track. Yes, we made it back to the Westin after last night’s adventure. After my late evening (early morning) blog post, the @StarwoodBuzz Twitter...

Welcome to #Gencon, now get the hell out of your @StarwoodBuzz hotel! (Thus begins my trip to Indiana) 2

Welcome to #Gencon, now get the hell out of your @StarwoodBuzz hotel! (Thus begins my trip to Indiana)

See that picture of me?  That was taken from my Toshiba netbook on an Airtran flight right before I started watching Evangelion 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone.  In that photo I am about to make use of my awesome new Sony noise eliminating headphones to eliminate the noise of the...

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...

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...

Deep in Thought

This past weekend was both EPIC and EPIC FAIL and too many levels to describe.  The reality of it, though, is that I’m left with having to evaluate the Wasabiverse, future projects and other satellite topics surrounding it all.  I’ve accomplished not dwelling on it too much thanks to a...

As #GenCon Draws to a close…

This weekend was an epic undertaking.  Kudos to the team from Wasabi Anime and the Mint Chocolate Chippies for some outstanding work these past four days.  Also, a big congrats to the folks at Cosplay Deviants for hosting a couple of tremendously successful events over the last two evenings. There...

The @JoeySnackpants Rules for Life…

A number of things happened last night here at Gen Con which brought to mind (at least to me) Mr. Snackpants’ rules for life (which can all be read here.) This one, though, sticks out the most in my mind for folks regarding things yesterday evening. 25. Do not be...

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...
