I watched something that made me cry and I loved every tear

6 May

Let me start off by saying that over the last few years I have become someone who prefers cartoons and comic book based programs over most anything else. Sure, I know there is a ton of amazing TV out there and I have a vague interest in a lot of it but I also work 13 hour days at a prison. I don’t want to deal with cop shows, medical dramas, or real life. I want to watch superheroes save the day. My mom calls it “popcorn for the mind” and I’m totally OK with that.

BUT… every now and then I have to broaden my horizons. Continue reading

Surviving Coronapocalypse 101

3 Apr

I have been meaning to write something for a bit but my life is fluid at the moment, up to change at all times, and that is overwhelmingly exhausting. But I think it’s important that I use the voice this page has given me (thanks for that) and present some thoughts about surviving this pandemic lockdown. Continue reading

An Ode to Brandon Routh

6 Mar

As his run on Legends of Tomorrow comes to an end, it seems appropriate to take a few minutes and appreciate all that is Brandon Routh as he flies off to the next endeavor. I, personally, will miss his adorable sweetness and charm on the show, but am looking forward to whatever he does next.

Bakersfield Comic Con helped me collect a new TV Dad!

18 Nov

As I recently posted, this past weekend had a convention in the South Valley of California and I trekked down with my partner in nerdery (my big brother and fellow nerd), James, to check it out. I was pretty blown away that it was the 12th year of the event and honestly the first time I had even heard about it. I honestly thought that ep of The Big Bang Theory was making it up!

I was wrong.

Looking for something to do this weekend? Bakersfield Comic Con may be right up your alley!

15 Nov

Excited to say that we are finally heading out to a convention this year. I know, it’s November and it’s the first event we’re attending but there’s been a drop in local events this year and while there are major events all over the country from conventions we love (like Wizard World) that have been on our interest list, spotlighting smaller events is a bit of a passion. You’d think that California would be able to support more events in the Central Valley but sadly, the numbers have dropped sharply in the last two years. Continue reading

Big or small, does size really matter?

7 May

Before Avengers: Endgame was released, I was talking to a friend about it and how excited I was to see it. He was excited, too. But then I reminded him that he hadn’t seen Captain Marvel yet (which, what the hell, dude?), so he couldn’t see Endgame for a bit still. He agreed and then said, “I’ll just wait til it’s streaming in a few weeks”. Continue reading

May the 4th be with you!

Just a keep post to wish everyone a happy Star Wars day!

I have found myself caught in the TBS marathon Continue reading

Heroes and Villains invaded San Jose for another year of adventuring!

10 Dec

For our 3rd year, we ventured over the hill from the Central Valley to hang out with some heroes and villains, and zombies too!, in San Jose. This was sort of a last minute venture due to availability issues with minions, but in the end we made plans and set out to see what there was to see.

As I write up the event and my thoughts, I am starting to think there should be classes on convention etiquette because there were several moments that were frustrating. However, there were also a lot of really good things. Did it balance out? I’m not sure… let’s talk about some of the highlights and issues and see. Continue reading

LA Comic Con, oh how I’ve missed you! (or have I?)

12 Nov

After missing out on last year’s convention because my assistant decided getting paid for actual work instead of doing free convention wanderings was a better deal… well, I made a return to my convention fun. With a new assistant. Who ended up having more delightful shenanigans than I, but more on that later. Continue reading

Fandemic Tour- Sacramento, a first stop of fun

16 Jul

Recently, we had the pleasure of checking out the first stop on the Fandemic Tour, with a quick trip up to Sacramento to help inaugurate a new convention. Overall, it was quite an enjoyable convention and it is recommended to check out if a stop happens to be near you. Though as it was the first event, there are a few things that could be improved. We’ll touch on the good and bad in a bit. Continue reading
