More Superhero Television – “The Cape”

I, like so many people, don't often get the time to watch every TV show that I want to. We have jobs, lives, etc, and before the advent of DVR, it was often a game of VCRs and setting your clocks right. [Editor's note: if you don't know what a VCR is, or why clocks … Continue reading More Superhero Television – “The Cape”

Networking is fun…

The social kind, not the computer kind (not that computer networking can't be fun; I'm not trying to get a bunch of network administrators angry at me or anything, but... fuck it; you know what I mean.) While I was out in Los Angeles attending Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo, I spent a lot of time … Continue reading Networking is fun…

Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo 2015 – Wrap-up

It is now Monday morning, and the uber-long weekend that was Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo 2015 is over.

See my previous … Continue reading Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo 2015 – Wrap-up
