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…

**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

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.

Ugh. Just…ugh.

Well, since last I addressed this (for what I thought would be the last time: silly me), the “backlash” against FanX Salt Lake isn’t dying down. Conversely, it’s not really picking up, either. Aside from (from my vantage point) the original, most vocal group expressing their dissatisfaction with the perceived response by FanX to the … Continue reading Ugh. Just…ugh.

FanX logo

Well, it's been a couple of weeks now, since the story broke about a sexual harassment incident that reportedly occurred between author Richard Paul Evans (RPE) and an unnamed female author at last fall's Salt Lake Comic Con (now FanX Salt Lake ) event. While there have been postings saying a report outlining a FanX-performed … Continue reading Sexual Harassment, Assault, and the FanX Fallout

Taking place on March 29, the theater … Continue reading “Ready Player One” FanX Salt Lake Screening

FanX Salt Lake blurb: Guest Annoucement and Ticket Discounts

Quick note. Bryan Brandenburg and Dan Farr over at FanX Salt Lake are making a big (well, sorta) guest announcement for September's FanX event tomorrow at noon. Rumor has it, it's going to be a Marvel cast member. Not coincidentally, the 15% ticket discount ends tomorrow night at midnight (Mountain Time).
