One of my absolute favorite cons returned this past weekend, the weekend before my birthday, like a special gift from the universe. Planet Comicon Kansas City is a well staffed, well organized, fun and friendly convention with something for everyone.Continue reading
The Mooby’s franchise has been brought to life from the world of Kevin Smith’s films, and it’s been touring around the US. Luckily for me, it came to St. Louis, and I was able to continue my journey of following Kevin Smith to the end of the world. (In case you missed them: Meeting Kevin Smith and my experience with The Secret Stash/Comic Book Men.)
You can watch a short video of my Mooby’s experience here.Continue reading
Saturday, my best friend and I decided to make pizza fries and bask in our love for Kevin Smith by watching Jay & Silent Bob Reboot together for the first time.Continue reading
The legend regarding the Bell Witch is one of the most interesting we have in America, and definitely one of the most unique. It is one of the most well documented cases of a haunting, and even resulted in the spirit taking a man’s life.
So, of course, I decided it would be a good idea to go check out the Bell Witch Cave.
This has been a long awaited tale, for many. One of my greatest adventures from a little over three years ago.
The story of my spontaneous trip to Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash for Comic Book Men.
The Saint Louis Science Center does a monthly, nerdy event every month called First Friday. As the name suggests, it’s the first Friday of each month, and each is themed differently. They offer a variety of activities, vendors for fandom merch, and occasionally special guests.
And best of all: it’s free to the public, as is parking. There are select ticketed events they warn, but I didn’t encounter any on this trip to know which to point out.
May the 4th (Be With You) and Free Comic Book Day hit on the same day this year, which made my hope for a whole Star Wars themed party a bit unattainable, but we did get to have an accidentally too busy FCBD.
We only went to one participating shop, but before that went to another shop we enjoy mostly because, for once, my brother was also with us, so it seemed like a good excuse to drive an hour out of the way.
So, first stop was Villainous Grounds.
I am back (and still trying to recover from) my first con of the year – Planet Comicon! While we had a ton of fun this year, it certainly wiped me out – and we only attended two days!
