Friends and Road Trips to Hamacon!

Sorry for lack of updates and not sticking to my “post each week” semi-goal. I often find myself torn between trying to decide what would be appropriate to post here versus knowing that I should just write to stay sharp. I actually had an enlightening conversation with my friend Jon Wright about that very same…

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Comic Book Death in Live Action

Free Comic Book Day in Nashville: Aftermath

In retrospect, I feel I should have made last week’s column promoting Free Comic Book Day. Maybe even post twice last week.

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…
