 Professional WHAT? I am tempted to write in "ditch digger" or "zombie stalker" on my name tag. I wouldn't be the first. So as soon as the kid wakes up we get to head back down for another day of becoming so exhausted we sleep in until 10am the next morning. It's a vicious cycle, but someone's got to do it! So today is the BIG day, in terms of people being at the Con who don't have to go after work…it's crazy busy and jam packed with more panels, events and special s … [Read more...]

What a day…Fridays at Comic Con are always nuts as people begin their weekend early. Lots of activity in the main hall, people lining up for HOURS to get freebies, and of course for the panels. I was told people camped out overnight for the bigger panel tickets. HUH?

Racism In the Screen – How Television Can Spark Conversation

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach Lorton, who, once he takes hold of an issue, runs with it:I've been trying to avoid all the talk about racism that has come over our airwaves in the last month, but stuff keeps happening.  I can't escape it.Now to be fair, the place where the most of the flames are really being fanned is the internet, with all its various, gloriously self-appointed morality judges who often speak according to their own convictions, rather than to what their higher … [Read more...]

The Conjuring: Horror for Smart People

(Potential Spoilers ahead) As a soon to be published horror novelist, I have a vested interest in the genre. I've often said that good horror writing should be like good sexy writing: in the head and the imagination. Too much detail or graphic description kills the mood. We've seen a few promising horror films in that vein in recent years. The first Paranormal Activity, The Last Exorcist, and the underrated Woman in Black are some great examples. They were a departure from torture porn and … [Read more...]
