Weekend Geekery Part Deux

Well I'm still in the city of Corner Brook for Day 2 of Atlanti-CON. Yesterday was amazing, I already said how great it was to catch up with friends but I can't fully convey the epicness of it all. The organizers really outdid themselves with this and they should all be very proud of what they have accomplished.

Weekend Geekery

So I'm in Corner Brook this weekend for a Sci-Fi Convention. The drive out was great, we had a disorganized convoy of cars playing catch up across the island at various rest stops. I streamed parts of it to my ustream channel and shared them to YouTube.  It was a fun way to pass the trip and we even found an app for smartphones that turns them into almost walkie talkies so we could shoot voice messages back and forth like texts without having to call each other constantly.

Mythological Mayhem

I've been watching a lot of Gargoyles lately and it's reminded me how much I love mythology and ancient legends.

Untitled Engen Story

Many moons ago I was asked by my good friend Matt LeDrew of Engen Books to do up a short story based in the universe of his "Black Womb" series. I agreed and had a concept in mind that started with a microscopic, sentient parasite for a villain. Then I hit a roadblock, well, a writing block. I haven't put pen to paper in almost a year, I just haven't had any idea of how I'd continue with any of the stories that I'd started.

Then, as I said in my last entry, I started this blog and I started forcing myself to get into the routine of writing something, anything at least once a day. That kick started the neurons in my ol' brain bucket and I've started looking over three stories that I've had on the shelf. So without further adieu, here's the revised start of my Engen universe short story.

Self photography rant

Hi all,

Wow, it's been a while since I made a post. I haven't been keeping very well to my 'post a day' promise that I made to myself. Well I'm only human after all and perfectly fallible in my intentions. But I'm back now and we'll see how this goes. Tonight I want to rant about pictures, more specifically people taking pictures of themselves to post online. It's getting ridiculous and the pictures are getting more ridiculous.  I know there are the classic 'my space' style of pictures, changing the angles and striking a pose and looking fake as hell, but that's only half the issue, read on to see where I'm going with this.

Working like a dog

So another night with not much on my mind to turn into a post. Sometimes there are things floating around in my brain, sometimes there aren't. Mostly it's because over the past week and a bit, I've been working flat out. The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition say that; "No good deed ever goes unpunished" and it's holding true.

Missed One

So I missed a day posting, not really sure how I feel about that. I've been doing so well keeping to my own self imposed schedule of making a post a day. Life happens I suppose. Oh well, them's the breaks I suppose, I can only do my best. It just happens that life got in the way and I couldn't make the post. But that's not what I was going to talk about, so onward we go.
