pop culture con: tomorrow & sunday

so, i have been largely absent from my blog since nerdcon.  just–the state of the world has me down, and i’ve been wrapped up in my nanowrimo novel:  tales from the glittering venery.

i’ve been posting excerpts to my imzy if y’all are interested in reading any of it.

but!  that’s not actually why i’m here today.  i’m here–bugging y’all during the capitalist height of the year–to tell y’all that i’m actually at a con this weekend!  (like, i’m literally on the road now.)  i’m at pop culture con in st. charles.  it’s a nes con, but i think it might be fun.
svengoolie’s gonna be there, so it’s got potential?

see y’all this weekend.


Happy New Year! A 2012 in review.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

Click here to see the complete report.

So, my question is, why aren’t y’all talking to me on occasion?

I get loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooonely.


I’ll have more to say in the next day or two, but I wanted to drive-by and check in on y’all.


“We first put Rumplestiltskin [Robert Carlyle] in a hoodie. He looked simple and very non-threatening. Then [the producers] said, ‘Let’s make him a rock star.’ We redesigned his look from head to foot, thinking of Keith Richards and Mick Jagger. Now he looks sexier and more dangerous!” (source: TV Guide)

I totally kinda <3 Robert Carlyle as an actor; he’s always such a dick.
