I Live! (Sort of)

Wow. I can't believe how busy my vacation has been. I don't have much time now but I do have SOME time so here's a quick rundown. The weird thing is how few opportunities I've had to get online in the past couple weeks....for someone who lives online it's hilarious to be so cut off from the digital realm. Were I to have neopets right now, they'd have starved long ago. So, Stuff!

1. GenCon. Wow. Just Wow.
My first convention and I had no idea what to expect. Things I learned:
#1: I suck at playing D&D Miniatures. I thought I was good but upon meeting American players I was ground into a fine pulp, snorted through a dirty rolled-up twenty, and used for nefarious purposes. It was hilarious how bad a player I was. I had a heck of a lot of fun but yeah, twas brutal.

#2: The Wizards folks are awesome. I can't talk too much about it but everyone was super-receptive, nice, and definitely into the geeky crap that I do. Well, most of them. I did have a drunken mishap explaining to a certain Forgotten Realms Designers and implying he didn't know about D&D having a website. Was a fun cross between hilarious and RPG-career suicide. Not really, but it was fun in a doom-filled kind of way.
Long story short, I've got some more geek-work in my future. I met everyone I was supposed to (and then some) and fun future projects were discussed. Fingers-Crossed and looking forward to hammering them out when I return to Berlin.

#3: Crap, the laptop's battery is about to die and I'm not even a quarter through all the stuff I need to share. More later. In the meantime, let me just show you two places where you can hear my voice:

Critical Hits let me aim some goofy questions at D&D Wizard James Wyatt. I wasn't supposed to talk but, well, I couldn't help it.

Also, I did a audio commentary with the Jerks for Dark Crystal and Tobe Hooper's Mortuary. Check them out if you dare.

More later guys...sorry for the radio silence. Vacation has been ...surreal. But fruitful.
(And if you've emailed me and I haven't written back but are reading this, know it's because of battery doom and that I've got a LOT of emails to respond to.)

I'm not sure we ever said "you can't talk", I just had to edit all the times out when you asked permission.

Sent you an email, would love a response while you're still in the states.

I e-mailed you also, so I assume by "lots of e-mail" you're just talking about the two from Dave and myself.

Beware the Schmoo!

Oh my. I think the biggest reason for me to avoid my in-box (I looked at it and did a quick impression of the Nazi-Face-Melting from Raiders of the Lost Ark) is that I suck at connecting Blog Names to Real Names to Email Addresses to Folks who got doodled on Business Cards so I'd remember their names. It's hilarious how much of a scatter brain I am.
Sort of.

Make you a deal: If I can't figure it out in the next few minutes I'll share the infamous "Stripper Story" that happened a few days ago.
Not that I was going to keep it to myself, but at least that sounds good, right?
Sort of?

Seriously. You are sharing the stripper story?! LOL! Just kidding, not that I haven't told everyone I know. So, I posted the artwork commemorating the excursion on facebook if you would like to steal it back... So where is the new artwork?

Oh, and I caught a certain Vanilla surfing web porn. Weird.

I think I'm supposed to hear from you later... which is awesome timing as I will probably be out of town this weekend due to my 3 yr anniversary.

Wow... Scott Evil is singing "Back Door Lover" on TV... WTF?

Talk to you later!

I saw your 2min. Shnappie...

Is that the inspiration/subject of that German song we hear on the radio in Ottawa (really only one station, and used to drown out boring callers (sports-talk radio))

"Schnee-schnaw-schnappy... shnappy-schappyp-schnap!"

That song gets in your head like "the Muppet Show" theme...

Love the art.... More monsters w/ wheels please.
