More Photos from #GenCon

Several people asked me to share photos from GenCon, and so here are some more, which I took and thus am not in, illustrating some of the costumes and sights. First, there's Doctor Fett with an Imperial Guard, as two universes collide! Redshirts, a clever idea for a Star Trek game: Balloon Cthulhu: A Jawa [Read More...]

More #DoctorWho at #GenCon: Meeting Peter Davison

I had a great day at GenCon today. Here are some more Doctor Who photos, including me grinning like an idiot when meeting Peter Davison! And just in case Steven Moffatt doesn’t reunite classic and more recent Doctors for the 50th anniversary, GenCon brought them together, more than once. Here’s one example: [Read more...]

#DoctorWho and Cardhalla at #GenCon

On one side of the exhibit hall, Who North America has a store, with a TARDIS and a Dalek. I will try to get someone to take my picture with them before the end of the day! I'm glad I went to get Peter Davison's autograph when I did. There was no line then, while [Read More...]

Gearing Up For GenCon

I stopped by on Wednesday, before the official start of GenCon, to pick up badges and event tickets from will call at the Indianapolis Convention Center, thinking that it would be less busy then than on the day I'm attending.

Go Ahead and Play Again

I returned to the public piano in front of Indianapolis’ Central Library today, this time with my son, who plays the violin. We played “Berceuse” by Ottorino Respighi, one of our favorite pieces for violin and piano, and also did some improvisation together. I also played and sang “You Raise Me Up” and my son [Read More...]

I’m Going to GenCon!

GenCon is a fun annual event here in Indianapolis. This year, I’ll be going for the first time. Peter Davison and Walter Koenig will be there. I will probably wear a costume. Given the focus of my fandom, I feel it really ought to be something Doctor Who related, rather than the Star Trek uniform [Read More...]

City Water

Yesterday was a momentous occasion. For the first time since moving to Indianapolis more than a decade ago, my family lives in a home connected to city water. It isn't that we moved. Citizens Water recently put a main on our street, where previous utility companies had not done so. And then Bedell Plumbing connected [Read More...]

Home at Last

I encountered some delays on the last leg of my trip here in the United States, due to weather. But otherwise everything went smoothly, and I am now back home in Indianapolis!   [Read more...]

Logan Airport

I love it when airports genuinely seem to understand that people find themselves there for long periods of time, and that something like free wi-fi can turn the wait from a hassle into time that is actually productive.
