Social Media Cleanup!

When I was in middle school and high school, I would regularly find myself dealing with ways to “quiet my brain”.  You see, I have a problem that – at any given time – my mind is busy thinking about three to four things at once.  The problem isn’t focus;...

You know what? EVERYONE needs help sometimes… even me.

Hello Internet.  How are you?  How have you been?  Good to hear. Me? Well, I’m okay.  I’m better.  I’m getting better. My life has been in turmoil since last November.  Things got better around February.  The past two months, though, have been non-stop trying to make up for lost time from...

I uninstalled @GetGlue today – BECAUSE I CAN NO LONGER GET “GLUE”

I love social media.  I’m mean, let’s face it: I’m a social networking whore.  Practically anything that shows up with even the slightest bit of home of being a viable social network tool gets me as a user with the name “TomCroom”. facebook.com/TomCroom twitter.com/TomCroom flicker.com/TomCroom etc. Being a film nerd and...

How the @CrownPlaza Anaheim completely failed during my stay there. Twice. 0

How the @CrownPlaza Anaheim completely failed during my stay there. Twice.

I’m sitting on Virgin Airlines flight 312 from LAX to MCO after an insanely productive weekend in Los Angeles.  Seriously insanely totally mega productive. It was great. The low point, though, is sticking in my brain and annoying the hell out of me –  so here I am writing about...

My “Going to #Japan” Checklist. Let me know if I’m forgetting anything! 2

My “Going to #Japan” Checklist. Let me know if I’m forgetting anything!

Tomorrow night I catch a plane and head west… really really far west.  I’m flying to Tokyo, Japan for the Tokyo Anime International Fair next week.  Before I go, though, I want to make sure I have all my proverbial ducks in a row. Thus I turn to all of you...

WTF is #KONY2012? Now I know – and you should, too. 1

WTF is #KONY2012? Now I know – and you should, too.

I fucking hate politics.  If there’s something I work hard to avoid getting into it’s political discussions and arguments because it exists in a sea of opinions and everyone’s opinions are (invariably) better than yours or mine. You know? That said, there are a few things in the world’s political...

NCL Bahamas Cruise Part 1: Miami Beach, Florida

For our fourth anniversary trip, Shannon and I took our first ever cruise.  Since Shannon grew up in Georgia (and we weren’t sure about her ‘sea legs’) we opted to start with a simple three night/two day excursion to the Bahamas.  We kicked off the trip but getting a hotel...

Regarding Facebook, Google+ and Twitter SUCKING (OMGDRAMAZ!)

I posted this on G+ this morning, but it bears repeating here: Facebook changed again and it sucks! Google+ is boring and it sucks! The old Twitter is better than the new one which sucks! I should STOP PAYING for all of these services because I am obviously not getting...

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...

Dear @SamsungService – need help diagnosing an 56 inch LED DLP issue!

My television is a Samsung HLS-5679W 56-Inch LED Engine 1080p DLP HDTV. The other day, the left half of the screen started “ghosting” green around everything. You can see in these three photos (click each one for a larger view): Now, I’m a “I can take it apart myself” type...

Nobody Reads the Con Guide (or “How I Learned to Love @GuidebookApp”) 1

Nobody Reads the Con Guide (or “How I Learned to Love @GuidebookApp”)

I have been playing with fan conventions as an amateur (READ: not my full time job) event designer and promoter for over a decade.  In that time, I learned that conventions are very similar to theme parks in a number of way.  My favorite parallel?  Con guides and park brochures....
