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...

That Time I Stopped Blogging & Went to 4 Conventions in 6 Weeks.

Hello dorkness, my old friend… Apologies abound for the lengthy sound of silence.  Truly and sincerely.  The thing is, when you live life in the “geek” industry, unplanned elements are always the plan.  When I started the day to day blogging regiment after my 42nd birthday, I always knew the...

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...

Obligatory New Year’s Post! 2013 was amazing & horrible.

I’m pretty proud of the fact that I live my life like an adventure.  Each step I’ve taken on this meandering quest to not be normal has led me through a series of ups and down.  2013 really tops the charts for activity, though.  This past year I drove a...

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....

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...

Dear Blog, I miss you. I’ve been busy with this #AnimeExpo2012 thing.

I promise to write more.  Hopefully soon.  Hopefully about Japan and how AWESOME DARE! The Transformers Panel Ultimate went at Anime Expo 2012. For now, though, enjoy this random photo I took outside the front of the Los Angeles Convention Center the other day.

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...

So here’s my OPINION of the whole Occupy movement after seeing #OccupyLA

First off: my blog = my opinion.  I have a snazzy little disclaimer down on the bottom right of the screen (scroll down… you’ll see it) that states that my opinions are mine only and not blah blah blah.  You get the picture. So here goes. I have heard and...

The difference between BotCon 2010 and 2011 is simple:

So BotCon’s Twitter replied to me today to inform me about how they are working on the “amazing Botcon 2012” event. Check it out: http://twitter.com/#!/BotCon/status/141892993228611584 Instead of a long series of tweets, I’ll remind the folks at BotCon what I pointed out back in 2010 with this short blog post: 1....
