That Time I Argued with Adam Goldberg (of The Goldbergs) about Transformers

When I’m having a conversation about with someone and of the random “that time Tom Croom” did something stories shows up, I usually just search my own blog and forward folks likes to the story about whatever item/legend/lie they heard.  Recently, I was talking sitcoms with a friend on the...

My @BotCon/#Transformers infamy got me recognized… at @TheHukilau?!

Lead a strange enough life and stranger things will eventually happen. I went to the Hukilau in Fort Lauderdale a couple of weekends ago to help promote PinUpalooza 2015.  Daytime programming at the well known tiki convention was a little light, so I found myself walking around the vendors room (which...

In case you didn’t know, I collect Optimus Prime figures.

A friend of mine on Facebook recently took a photo and posted it with the title “geek decorating is therapy.”  It featured a lot of his toys (something many of us adults still collect/play with) and I realized that I have never really posted the collection in my home office.  You...

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...

So I got some fan mail (sarcasm) from @Botcon in my inbox! Check it out:

Pete, Thanks for writing! I’m confused at what facts are in question. (In my best impersonation of the narrator from Pushing Daisies) The facts were these… I have been attending fan conventions across the United States since 1991. I’ve visited events like yours of almost every shape and size from...

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....

Flickr Friday: Autobots, Decepticons and a LOT of books.

A few months back I bought this awesome book shelf from Ikea.  It is now home to my library of AWESOME and a bunch of Transformers statues.  Bask in the geeky goodness of this photo. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each...

Flickr Friday: Even G1 #Transformers can suck from time to time.

Yes… Cosmos has commonly been pointed out as being the DUMBEST Autobot concept in the G1 universe by myself and Mr. Snackpants at DARE! The Transformers Panel Ultimate.  This fact is only made better by the fact that Teletran 1 can’t even spell his name correctly.  (The pic is one...

Present for all the Transformers geeks that read my blog. Yes, that is a real sign from a real place. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  In doing so, I get to revisit a lot of photos I’ve taken while travelling....

BEAST WARS SUCKS but does #Transformers Prime suck too? (Read on!)

[SPOILER ALERT!] If you haven’t watched the five part Transformers: Prime story “Darkness Rising” and you happen to be into the whole robots in disguise thing, well, you may not want to read this yet.   Plot points will be discussed that can be considered all spoilery and stuff.  Consider...
