Thoughts for Today

- I find it interesting how disgruntled people in line will try to find "allies". For example, if a checkout clerk is particularly slow, you will often hear the person next to you huff, or whisper "come onnnn". They will then give you a brief eye glance to see if you agree. If you smile or roll your eyes in agreement, the alliance has been formed! It's you guys against the enemy clerk, and he better scan the yogurt properly.

- What if we went back in time and found out the T-Rex roar sounded exactly like a dolphin twitter? Would you be as disappointed as I?

- Sure we have I-pods, lap-tops, and cellphones - but were are the hovercars? I think we are owed an explanation here.

- Theoretically, Magneto would be useless against a Pinocchio attack.

Nerdfest 2008: Back From Dragoncon

That's right, folks - we went to Dragoncon - again! Was it awesome? Yes. Where there three huge hotels packed with comics, fantasy, and nerds? Yes. Plenty of incredible costumes, art, writers, etc. There were also celebrities, and we attended the Battlestar panel, went to the walk of fame, etc. I got to meet James Edwards Olmos, James Hong, and others. There was also come amazing artists, and a fantastic art show. But enough of the description - bring on the pictures!

Sean Astin (Sam from Lord of The Rings) and Beau Bridges.

Kevin Sorbo (Hercules) and the Grant Wilson (Ghost Hunters)

Adam West (Batman) and George Takei (Sulu)

The Panel from Battlestar Galactica. If you look closely you can see Edward James Olmos (Adama), James Callis (Dr. Baltar), Micheal Hogan (Tigh), and Aaron Douglas (Tyrol)

Some Ghostbuster nerds and some Star Wars guys

The Matrix (check out Trinity) and and an incredible Iron Man costume

Batman (posing somewhat dramatically) and Emma Frost

Some "300" costumes and Mad Max

And, of course, Vader!

Well, That's all for now. May the nerd be with you!
