Dragon*Con 2007 :: Wrap-Up

Tips for Blogging, Puddin’ Brain

There’s something to be said for focus. Hitting the hot spots on the web for news is well and good, but it’s probably more productive to focus on those places that can offer you something to comment on, rather than simply steal your attention away from what you came there to do.

Birthday Cheers. Skål!

…And upon the third decade of life, such an elaborate scheme was laid upon the woolen eyes of their victim. Never before have I been so bewildered and pleased in the same breath. Here’s the skinny on one of the greatest sting operations of all times. Jeff calls me early…Continue Reading

You may have seen the original movie or read the book (wasn’t there a cartoon also?), but a new movie just seems apt after the abysmal 1982 rendition. Since Adams’ untimely death in 2001, proper…Continue Reading
