wonder, awesome, love

19 Jun

‘Twas a pretty busy weekend, overall. While work has kind of settled into a new routine now that development on our piece of the larger project is in full swing, my two contractors (responsible for different parts of the process) are kind of at odds (this rivalry pre-dates my involvement, but it’s currently my problem), […]

friday random eleven: “it’s me or wheaton!” edition

16 Jun

After a shaky start to the week (some program schedule weirdness that is still sort of getting worked out), I seem to have fallen back into at least something of my routine again, which is, to be honest, so much better for my health and sanity. The weather and a couple of doctor’s appointments are […]

concarolinas – where I’ll be

01 Jun

So, this weekend is ConCarolinas, a con in Charlotte, NC I’ve done the last couple of years with The Humdingers, which has always been a pretty good time; usually a bunch of our musical friends are there, and we get up to all sorts of mischief (usually the good kind). This year is no exception, […]

lockjaw

23 May

Seriously! LOCKJAW! I know people have been kind of dismissive of Marvel’s upcoming Inhumans tv series coming this fall; it’s a very weird corner of the Marvel Universe, traditionally more Shakespearian than even Walt Simonson’s Thor, full of arch, scenery-chewing Game of Thrones-style royal family backstabbing involving women with prehensile hair and a guy named […]

wrocking roanoke

15 May

So…the Roanoke HP festival. It was interesting. There were some weird organizational issues that could be chalked up to this being the first year of an event that got way bigger than anybody expected (and a couple of rumors I won’t go into that probably can’t). The folks in attendance seemed to have fun (even […]

friday random eleven – “all over the place” edition

05 May

Happy Friday, folks. It’s actually not been a bad week at all. At work, I’ve managed to finally (I think) give everyone the documentation they need to wrap up the annual budget/contract stuff so I’ll be able to pay my folks next year. I hope, anyway. It feels good right now, so I’ll take it. […]

may the fourth etc..

04 May

The Catholic reflex is strong with this one… I kind of love fun meaningless holidays, and Star Wars Day fits the bill perfectly. Just a fun little excuse to get your geek on, style your hair in cinnamon buns, or whatever your favored token of celebration. My favorite thing about it, though, is the Glitter […]

bulletproof. blind ninja. whatever it is you are…

03 May

Look what dropped today! It’s nice to see the four Netflix heroes together, for the big Defenders crossover series; I enjoyed each of them, in one way or another, on their own, though I’m hoping (and am encouraged by what you see above) that together, they’ll be greater than the sum of their parts; I […]

thursday random eleven – “because I won’t be here friday” edition

27 Apr

Hey folks, as evidenced below, since I’m taking a couple of days off to prepare for and recover from Ravencon (and also, because I deserve it), I probably won’t be in this space much, so why not throw up a playlist today while I’m going through my emails and sorting out the day? I’ve already […]

ravencon this weekend

26 Apr

Hey folks, just a quick reminder that I’ll be at Ravencon in Williamsburg this weekend with Dimensional Riffs, in our official con debut. Yes, this band played a couple of bar gigs this summer with a different line-up, but this is the first big show for this particular version of the band, and I think […]
