SDCC 2009 – Thursday, as best as I can recollect.
ALL DIFFERENT THINGS (03) – WEDNESDAY So I guess it’s hot in the northwest now. Now being a week after SDCC proper started. It even hit triple digits. Having flown to San Diego from a place where it had been 100+ for five out of the last ten days and it had hit 110 for [...]
It begins! SDCC 2009 as reported by me. Part one of a few.

Really should find something or someone to consume and [...]
Matt’s punchy. Don’t be so mean.
Wait for it… That’s Buzz Aldrin, astronaut, second man to walk on the moon, punching out Bart Sibrel, conspiracy theorist who puts forth the proposition that the US never landed on the moon. Repeatedly and obnoxiously. What’s more, anyone who thinks those were faked has *never*, *ever* worked in special effects. State of the art [...]
