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…
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
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
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
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…
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?
**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
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
I’ve watched Doctor Who before: the classics, at least. I grew up with Tom Baker as “my” Doctor, and I don’t think that will change. I hadn’t watched anything related to Doctor Who after “Trial of a Time Lord” when it re-broadcast locally on over-the-air channel "RetroTV" last year (after at least 6 months of … Continue reading Revisiting an old friend: Dipping a toe into the new “Who”
As we speak, Dan Farr and Bryan Brandenburg (co-founders of Salt Lake Comic Con) are in San Diego, California, for the final go at settling the ridiculous lawsuit brought against them by Comic Con International, the owning organization of San Diego Comic Con. Since the beginning, it has been easy, as a fan, to … Continue reading Salt Lake vs San Diego, the Final Chapter.
