Hey!!! I am in New Orleans for Halloween. To kick off the weekend, I boarded the Float for Krewe of Boo. It was cool. Two hours-ish throwing stuff from the float to the gathered people. Then it was party time back at Mardi Gras World to the wee hours of the morning. Here are the pics (click on the pic or the link):

The condominium association decided to have fun here and there so they put on a Halloween party. It was a week before the “real” Halloween weekend so turnout was pretty good. Here are some pictures from the event. I took the pictures without using a flash because I didn’t want to ruin the ambiance; so the bulk of them have a fuzzy focus, sorry… Click on the pic or link to get to the pictures page:

GLOW for 2014 is over. It was weirdly cool. It’s at the Triangle L Ranch in the boonies – in Oracle, AZ. It’s about a one hour drive north of Tucson. GLOW is an yearly event. It got so big, the owner split the event into four weekend nights. The desert is lit up with lights all over. And weird glow-y artwork from local artists. And bands. And pie. No, it’s not a rave. No, there is no alcohol. It’s a family thing, it’s a young to old thing. And everyone wears something that, well, glows. It was almost like a sci fi convention. Hey, even the Doctor showed up. Well, the TARDIS was there but the Doctor must have slipped away in the darkness It was really different. And fun. Catch it next year.

This is my vacation from my vacation. Just relax and do nothing weekend at Club Med booked through SinglesCruise.com. No, it’s not a cruise, it was a land only thing. The picture below is from the Sunset Cruise on Friday night. For more pictures, click on the pic or link below

Went to London to attend Loncon3 and to Dublin to attend Shamrokon with Charissa and Shelly. I played “tour guide” here and there… Also met Paula and Douglas again for a day in London. Here are the pictures:

London is my favorite city (as you may have guessed by all the time I visit there). This time, London from the Thames at night – for New Year’s Eve 2013. Here are a bunch of pictures, mostly self-explanatory:

Later in the week, after New Year’s Eve, my friends, Paula and Douglas, visited from Winenhoe for a (rainy night) tour of London, including Sherlock Holmes Pub by Charring Cross tube station, Waxy O’Connor’s for Caffery’s and then walked to the Parliament building and Big Ben (which is the innards of the clock) in the newly renamed Elizabeth tower.

I didn’t take any picture of any of the guests – except Colin Baker, and that was by pure accident. He was walking down the hall and he decided to stop and kiss a Dalek. Luckily I was right there with my camera. I talked to Nicola Bryant for a bit, but sorry, no pics there…
However, I did get a few great costumes. There were waaaay more than I have here, but this is a great sampling…

Convergence was packed. It was insane. On Thursday, July 4, practically the entire con attendees descended into the hotel. 5000 people in the reg line from 11:00am till about 7:00pm. If you got stuck in the line, average wait time was 4 hours! Of course I skipped the line until is was barren, like around 8pm-ish.
With over over 6500 attendees, the 40 party rooms were crowded. Um, that’s an understatement. People, people, people just everywhere, all in the same place. The con had to make the hallways one-way only because of the massive crowds. People were saying that they need to get a bigger hotel, but I don’t know of any hotel that works as well for all of the nice lined up party rooms. The best costume I saw was Madame Vastra (took her 9 months to complete) and Jenny from Doctor Who. Click on the picture or link to see the rest:

“The Curse of Too Many Web Sites” No, it’s not a movie. It’s just that I have too many web sites that need to be constantly updated. But I am working on two animated movies: Dreadnought: Invasion Six at di6movie.com (feature length) and All Your Base LOL at AllYourBaseLOL.com (short film).
The latest is that, I am late on posting more convention pictures. Sorry about that. I have been working on Dreadnought then I switched in mid-stream and working on All Your Base LOL. So the update on that is, as follows. It’s All Your Base LOL first. It will be Flash animation in the style of “Archer”. It will have a fully orchestrated original score. All five parts will be played by known science fiction actors!
More at: AllYourBaseLOL.com. So far the artwork has been completed for 3 of the 5 actors, as follows:
Lizzie Roper as “Operator” in All Your Base LOL:
Claudia Christian as “Mechanic” in All Your Base LOL:
Terry Molly as “CATS” in All Your Base LOL:
