I’m in Canada, again, sooner than I thought. I’m traveling to see my pal Jeff. Jeff is my hero. Jeff is dying. Jeff has a rare, wretched form of brain cancer, Glioblastoma Multiform. He’s been fighting it with courage, humour and strength, for more than two years. Saying “he’s been an inspiration” is like remarking of the Golden Gate Bridge […]

Gen Come, Gen Gone, Gen Con

Particularly impressive: they got my Line Quality right.

Gen Con: the best four days of not seeing even an eighth of the friends you’d love to have seen… Yup, Gen Con 2016 is in the books, and it was a wild, crazy, insane time, with huge crowds, giant lines, and a total lack of sleep. And that’s just fighting for a Delta flight home! Ba-dum-kshhhh! […]
