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...

My InvaderCON Adventure in California (as told by Instagram.) 0

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...

Countdown to Tokyo, Japan: 30 Days

Did you know that I have a blog?  True story.  I started blogging in 2003 with no particular purpose in mind.  I just liked the idea of writing for the sake of writing.  Ars gratia artis and all the jazz.  I figured the only folks who were reading were a...

Facebook Politics, Stupid People, and my friend (@RichardHorvitz) needs your help…

UPDATE: As of 2:45 PM Eastern time, the Fake Richard Horvitz profile has been deleted by Facebook.  Thanks to everyone who helped bring it to Facebook’s attention.  Victory! Being a ‘convention personality’ in the fan community has its ups and downs.  I love meeting fans.  I love talking to people...

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...

Flickr Friday: A truly geeky trunk.

A few months back, Joey Snackpants and I undertook a college tour across Atlanta to promote InvaderCON.  We bought stuff along the way and my trunk began to look like a geek convention fan explosion. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each...

InvaderCON (or “I have the bestest friends in the world”)

Working InvaderCON was, quite simply, the greatest convention experience of my life. I went to my first “geek” convention over twenty years ago.  It was a Star Trek festival in South Florida where I won an award for dressing up like an abused Enterprise security guard.  It is also where...

Yes… I’m alive – and InvaderCON is finally completed.

So my blogging has been pretty lax lately (except for the book reviews and a photos each week) due to working on Green Mustard‘s newest project: InvaderCON. Well, InvaderCON over.  I’m sitting in the Marriott still processing it all.  The short version: it was amazing. The slightly longer version: it...

So here I sit at #MomoCon in Atlanta, Georgia and… 1

So here I sit at #MomoCon in Atlanta, Georgia and…

Man – this reminds me of old school JACON. MomoCon is the largest free anime convention in the United States.  Last year, the event had over 8000 attendees on the campus of Georgia Tech and this year it looks about the same.  Wasabi Anime is on hand to “bring anime...

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...
