Wait, wait wait wait. Anne went with you to PAX? I think it would be super interesting to hear about what you guys did, whether you played games together, and what her impressions were.

I am probably the only person that read "great *slash* fiction from escape pod", huh?

But...but...I loved *both* David Gerrold's Star Trek tell-all books!

Wow...I can't calculate the concrete benefits of Or intagibility. They are too...too...too...something.

"Senator Robert Malden" Oh god, if I get even a whiff of X-Men from this I swear to god I will stop watching this show. Except you know, time shifted to miss the commercials, say 20 minutes off.

@ReadReadWrite Depends on what you are a looking for - superheroes, scary monsters, strange indy comics - there is a lot of stuff out there. For superheroes, you can't go wrong with Astro City - since it basically is a retconn of every major hero out there under different names, it's unlikely to be retconned itself. You can never go wrong with Sandman, if you haven't read it. I really liked the Gotham Central series from a few years ago - set in Gotham, but focused on the police dept. - I think there are probably trades available. Hellboy and the related series are awesome if you like folklore/mythology/Lovecraft. For indies Skeleton Key and Blue Monday are excellent. (In fact, Wil, if you haven't read Blue Monday, run out and buy the first volume - you would love it).

I guess it's geeky. I mean, it's not figuring out all the forms of entertainment that are part of an austic kid's imagination geeky (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tommy_Westphall), but it's a little geeky.

@ joemorf You make an old man happy with your references to the finest film ever made that doesn't have a young princess on the lam on a scooter with a journalist. Obviously, you are a good boy. So, this Godzilla movie, is it good? Should I look forward to a Crunch Crumble Stomp mod I can play on my Apple II?

"iTunes DRM allows considerable freedom of use" Not really. For example, I prefer using Mediamonkey to play my music at night, since it has a sleep timer. I can use this to play all of the music I have except for the Matthew Good album that I bought from iTunes since it wasn't available digitally anywhere else. I would really, really enjoy falling asleep to this without going through the ridiculous steps involved in stripping the DRM and lowering the quality of the music. As long as iTunes DRMed music only plays in iTunes it is a ludicrous restriction on a consumer's use of their purchase.

Dork. Of course, I got it right away, so I can't talk. I also busted up when I saw George Takai's license plate on his limo on Heroes last season.

I think that the hardest thing about writing about your life must be that you are never *really* on vacation. Even the vacation is something to be observed and written about in the future. I point to your post as people's exhibit "A"
