A Whole New Con

Within the last day or so, I saw a new comic con event pop up in my social media: Started by former Wizard World CEO, John Macaluso, the inaugural event is scheduled for September 15-17, 2017, at the NRG Center in Houston, Texas (my old stomping grounds). Reminder: the last time I saw a con … Continue reading A Whole New Con

Queen + Adam Lambert in Las Vegas

So the original reason we went to Las Vegas this past weekend was to catch one of my favorite bands in action at the pretty-darned-new T-Mobile Arena. Queen. With Adam Lambert fronting them, I was finally going to get to catch Brian May and Roger Taylor live, on stage, right in front of my very … Continue reading Queen + Adam Lambert in Las Vegas

A Weekend in Vegas…

We love to travel at my house. We do. We go places, see things… not necessarily the same things or places as other people, but hey, to each their own, right? We’ve often arrived at our destination early, before the hotel’s standard check-in time, but rarely do we have a problem getting a room immediately, … Continue reading A Weekend in Vegas…

Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2017

Hey, everyone! Well, I got back from the weekend in beautiful, hot, Las Vegas a couple hours ago. Now that I've done all the standard "back home" checklist, it's time to fill you in on what went down while we were there. (I'll do this in various posts, of course, including the Amazing Las Vegas … Continue reading Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2017

Amazing weekend incoming

It’s amazing how things work out sometimes. A few months ago, the wife and I decided to go to Las Vegas to see the Queen + Adam Lambert show. That trip is now only 2 days away. But, as it turns out, that’s no longer all we’re doing down there. The Amazing Las Vegas Comic … Continue reading Amazing weekend incoming

Musings: Growing up, Working, Creating

Remember when you were a little kid, and people would ask you what you wanted to be when you grew up? Lots of kids said fireman, policeman, astronaut… No one ever really said “I want to work at Home Depot,” or “I want work as a sales rep for a pharmaceutical company.” And, except for … Continue reading Musings: Growing up, Working, Creating

Time to breathe…

As in: I wish I had some, lol. I'm writing this on Father's Day, sitting in my office, trying desperately to do nothing at all on this day of mine. Not because I'm lazy (I'm not... ish), but because I have, through nobody's fault but my own, been on a treadmill of Jetsonsian speed of … Continue reading Time to breathe…

Ever been to Coventry?

Everyone knows by now--or should know--that I love me a good comic con. I've been to cons in Salt Lake, LA, Vegas, Portland, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas, Houston, and even a teeny-tiny inaugural event in little San Angelo, Texas. And they are, all of them, great, especially when the community is really excited about them. With … Continue reading Ever been to Coventry?

The Triumph of Hope

**yes, this is a bit sappy, but what do you expect this early on a Saturday morning?** I was up just after 5 this morning, as is normal for me, and after doing some housekeeping on various webpages, I turned on the TV and watched most of the Ron Howard/Russell Crowe film, Cinderella Man. I … Continue reading The Triumph of Hope

16 June 2017 – Denver Comic Con Update

Well, we're two weeks out from Denver Comic Con 2017, and the cancellation bug has struck again. Sadly, Eliza Dushku has had to cancel her appearance at Denver Comic Con this year, which sucks for all of her fans. Luckily for those in the Rocky Mountain area, she is now scheduled to be at Salt … Continue reading 16 June 2017 – Denver Comic Con Update
