You Should Read This – The Fault in Our Stars

  I’ve avoided The Fault in Our Stars for some time now due to its content matter. Don’t get me wrong, I adore John Green (more on that later), but I cannot handle cancer as a topic for any form of art. Cancer runs in my family like blonde hair or freckles run in other… Read more »

You Should Read This: Locke and Key

As part of my second annual comic-con adventure I decided to finally pick up Joe Hill’s Locke and Key 1-4. IDW, the company that publishes Locke and Key, is one of my favorite publishing companies and I have heard outstanding things about Locke and Key, all of them true. In purchasing Locke and Key, I discovered… Read more »

Comic-Con thoughts: too big for its own good?

Oh dear reader… do you remember when I said I was going to try and do something different this year at Comic-Con? No? Go here, and then come back. Now that we’re all on the same page… I was stupid. While I did manage to get into Ballroom 20 on Thursday to see Elementary I… Read more »

Comic-Con Fall 2012 T.V. Preview

This year at Comic-Con I ended up seeing a lot more TV show previews than I expected; in fact, it became the pseudo-theme for my trip. This was caused mainly by the fact that it was impossible to get into other large-scale panels (more on that in a later post). However, it also means that… Read more »

How to be a Porcupine

“Holy shit! There are needles sticking out of my body!” Not to get overly personal, but I’ve been dealing with gastritis for about 7 years now. One of the things Vegas is not good for is health care; every doctor I have been to about my problem has run a test (maybe) and then shrugged… Read more »

Meat + Beer = Happy Geeks.

I think the people at Wicked Creative must love me. Why else would they invite me to see Fantasy and then allow me to eat and drink at Public House? Ahh Public House; meat and beer galore! On this particular evening the chef prepared a special sampling meal for the guests. We dined on tasty… Read more »

A Tale of Two Titties

First, let me apologize for the title of this post; I simply could not help myself. Over the past couple of months I have had the pleasure of seeing two of the Strip’s most lauded burlesque reviews: Fantasy at the Luxor and Peepshow at Planet Hollywood. When I sat down to write a review for… Read more »

A D&D Evening at Fogo De Chao

  I am not usually one to get all sentimental or annoyingly reflective during the Holiday Season but this year I have something rather geeky to be thankful for, and thus I am going to, well, get all sentimental (sort of).   Two years ago, a colleague of mine rolled into my room and started… Read more »

McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon – A bit of Irish, a lot of fun.

        Author’s Note: McFadden’s just announced it is closing its doors. So much for that eh?    I have to admit, as an American of Irish heritage, I tend to cringe at the proliferation of “Irish” pubs that dot U.S. cities. No doubt there are numerous authentic Irish pubs in Boston and… Read more »

The Importance of Checking-In

I am going to be upfront and honest: I think checking-in to locations via Foursquare or Yelp and advertising where you are and what you are doing is a bit ridiculous. I dislike reading “so-and-so checked-in at Happy Yogurt Fun Time” on my social media feeds and, I admit, sometimes I want to be at… Read more »
