Wizard World Portland 2019

Coming up in February of next year is another round of "Keep Portland Weird," Wizard Con edition. After my previous experience in Portland covering Wizard Con in 2017, I've decided to take another ride on the VooDoo Donuts-hosting train that is Wizard Con Portland. Now, the early guest list reads like a "Buffy the Vampire … Continue reading Wizard World Portland 2019

I have to post this…

..even though I don't want to. There are certain topics I'm really exhausted of talking about, but they keep coming up, because they impact me, however tangentially, so I am forced to mention them... again. Case(s) in point: Denver Comic Con (Fuck you, San Diego) is an event I've enjoyed attending the last few years … Continue reading I have to post this…

FanX logo

**Note: Language ahead. English, with some French, and by French, I mean cursing.** A little late, but here's some notes on Day Two of FanX 2018 [Yes, I will get to both the positive and negative... relax, already] along with some overall impressions (Day Three and fallout): Well, Day Two of FanX 2018 has come … Continue reading FanX 2018 – Day Two and Beyond

FanX 2018 – Day One

FanX logo

I present to you my thoughts of day one of FanX 2018. I do so while sitting in my chair at home, in excruciating agony. More on that later.* The morning on Social Media started a bit rough, with someone posting to Facebook that a volunteer told them the registration area wouldn't be open till … Continue reading FanX 2018 – Day One

Well, it's crunch time for Salt Lake City's premiere pop-culture event, FanX 2018 (obligatory "screw you, San Diego").

Wow! Are we really only 31 days away from this year's Salt Lake FanX (as always: screw you, San Diego)? Amazing. This line up is, well, amazing (to be redundant). With a half-dozen or so guests still to announce, take a look at the "big" celebrity names: We've known about Ben Affleck, Tim Curry, Evangeline … Continue reading FanX 2018 Update -5 Aug 2018

Fandemic Tour 2018 – Houston

A quick update on where things stand for Fandemic Tour 2018 in beautiful Houston, Texas... The ability to put your ticket/photo purchases on a payment plan expires 1 August, so if that's your preferred route, you'd better get on it. The guest line-up has been pretty set for a while, with only the occasional addition, … Continue reading Fandemic Tour 2018 – Houston

The worm turns… again.

Life is funny sometimes. You think certain things are going to happen, then they either do or don't, or some weird, convoluted combination of "do/don't." A few months ago, I may have mentioned how I had planned to attend Fandemic Tour in Houston in middle of September, and then had added the new Vegas Fan … Continue reading The worm turns… again.

Salt Lake Gaming Con 2018

I was able to go to the 2018 Salt Lake Gaming Con for a few hours on each of the two days, and thought I'd share my thoughts. I think I've made it clear that I love games. I was a big RPGer back in the day (read THIS), but as we move on through … Continue reading Salt Lake Gaming Con 2018
