marscon post-op, 2018 edition

16 Jan

As expected, I had a good time at Marscon this year. The people at this con; the organizers, the volunteers, the performers and guests, and the attendees are, at this point, like family – Marscon feels like coming home. You guys are awesome, and you really know how to make a person feel welcome, appreciated, […]

marscon schedule

11 Jan

In case you haven’t looked at this site in, like, forever, you probably know that I, as part of The Blibbering Humdingers, will be 1/3 Musical Guest of Honor at MarsCon in Williamsburg this weekend; merely one of a whole slew of really great guests, musical and otherwise. This is really my favorite con of […]

Fantastic Geeks and Where to Find Them (full length album) by The Blibbering Humdingers Okay, folks…this is the album we’ve been working on for the last year or so, and we cannot wait to share it with everyone!

05 Dec

As I mentioned a couple of posts back, the year doesn’t really feel like it’s coming to an end until I see a certain feature on a certain web site. Well, I’m feeling it. As such, I share with you, as I do most years, The A.V. Club’s Year in Band Names feature; a collection […]

probably too busy a weekend: wrock, dance, and road trips

30 Oct

Well, Saturday was pretty damned busy anyway. Friday was a usual workday, aside from hauling my behind out to Amherst to grab the kid (which I don’t mind doing at all – we had some nice bonding over college and work gossip and our friends Valentine Wolfe’s new record), with a stop at the Appomatox […]

happy ada lovelace day

10 Oct

I haven’t called this occasion out in a while, though it’s definitely something worth disucssing more often. To quote the official website of the celebration: Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) is an international celebration day of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in […]

what a difference a year makes

29 Aug

So, thanks to a one hour meeting turning into a nearly three hour meeting, and some nasty weather, I didn’t make it to the park with the kid yesterday evening. I’ll manage to make it up to her soon (Howl-O-Scream anyone?). I wouldn’t have been my best yesterday anyway, as my emotional state was swinging […]

14 Aug

So, We’ve successfully raised a *third* little person through their first decade of life. I think we’ve finally got this figured out, now that we’re done making them. This one in particular is probably the most empathetic and joyous of all of them, which is something we need in this family. It’s nice to know […]

trail magic

28 Jun

As one might notice (as I write this, anyway) in the “current obsessions” block in the left sidebar, I’m working toward a goal of biking at least sixty miles this week, mostly to see if I can manage it, and I want to see if I can kick my body in the pants and kickstart […]
