DIY Craft Project: Comic Collages!

Beware anyone with scissors, glue, and a spare weekend. As my fellow comic book fans are aware, we tend to collect a surplus of individual comic issues that we generally don’t care about. Usually because they aren’t that good or we have no interest in reading again. We often end up with a lot of…

Lessons from Conventions: Play Nice

Shame on me and my continued blogging tardiness (not to be confused with tardisness, which would fix my tardiness). The sad part is that I don’t have a convention to blame it on this time. Simply a birthday and an great steak dinner from my dad. Speaking of conventions, another con has come and gone…

Opportunity Vs. Focus

Apologies for the slim pickings of blog posts lately. My convention work has been consuming a lot of time, even after MTAC has come and went March 29-31. I don’t have a full con review yet, or much else of a blog post. Instead, I want to leave you with a tidbit I heard from…

Up Next, MTAC in Nashville, TN!

I almost actually forgot about this. This upcoming weekend – March 29-31, 2013 – is the Middle Tennessee Anime Convention in Nashville, TN. Working with the con is consuming most of my time this week (as well as the past few), so I apologize for the lackluster post. I do, however, highly encourage anyone in…

Back from Momocon 2013

It’s been a week since I’ve returned from Momocon, but it feels substantially longer. I’ve been on pre-con crunch time, with the con I work for now a week and a half away. I feel only a little guilty taking time out to write this post, but that’s mitigated by the joy of not looking…

Post-Momocon Pre-MTAC Filler Time

Hi folks! I just returned from Atlanta and Momocon. I don’t have time to post much, but I still want to keep my Monday commitments. I’ll post a Momocon follow-up next week, but for now, let’s all just calm down and make it through another week. If you need any help, you know who to…

Ghibli Films Showcased at The Belcourt Theatre This Spring

The Belcourt Theatre, a Nashville nonprofit cinema, is showing a series of family films every Saturday morning at 10am for the months of March and April. The coincidental part of these Kids Shows is that they’re almost entirely Studio Ghibli anime films directed by the famed Hayao Miyazaki. They range from the adorable My Neighbor Totoro to…

Back from Kami-Con 2013

Several times throughout this past weekend, someone would yell “You…” and I waited with baited breath for the rest of Gandalf’s quote “shall not pass”. Each time, I was let down. Finally, on Sunday afternoon while we were loading up outside for the trip home, a gamer girl cosplayer said to her friend, “I want…

Back to the Convention Grindstone

My “post here every Monday” commitment is going to be seriously tested over the next couple of months. MTAC is coming *cue Ned Stark* and I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me. Quick recap: MTAC is the Middle Tennessee Anime Convention, a Nashville-based anime con going into its 13th year on March 29-31.…
