The first episode was a great start to what i know will be an entertaining and darkly hilarious madcap adventure. Waiting for the remaining episodes will be the difficult part. Neil Gaiman delivered a brief and amusing introduction. Tasty nibbles were provided. Though this work is originally from nearly 30 years ago, i only read it a few months ago. Perfect timing (i did not know the show was coming).
Meet the Artificial Intelligence that runs Security Systems Corp in the 80s television show Max Headroom.
(I’ll tell you later why this is significant)
Even Captan Hammer needs tech support! I am always delighted to be awesome in the presence of someone who’s work i respect and admire. Forest was furious as soon as she recovered from the shock of it! She asked me to help tidy, not two hours earlier. I am a master procrastinator where cleaning is concerned. “Lets just watch TV instead,” I said. This may have hurt those efforts for years to come.
Our visit to San Diego is over, but the memories live on. I usually post as I go, but the cell service was so atrocious at the convention center, I couldn’t do any more then text from the convention floor. Here are some of my pics. I think i’ll start with the bath robe I almost bought. It was luxuriously soft and made me look like my favorite Wookie.
This year I explored the free open to all NerdHQ that was set up at Petco Park. it was pretty cool with lots of video game demos, panels, and other neat stuff. Some of the neatest was a display from Stupid Buddy Studios the stop motion guys who bring us Robot Chicken, among many other fun projects.
This guy actually controls the camera setup during the shoots with this modified Nintendo Power Glove. Love the retooled retro cool. I also learned about the culture of their office. It is themed like a scout troupe complete with patches awarded for projects completed and woodland wall paper in their LA offices. See some of the patches sewn into uniform shirts reminiscent of brownie uniforms of the 80s.
Even Samsung had an amazing superhero inspired display made of their amazing devices. Last, but certainly not least. . . Huge Thanks to Jenn!
waiting in line to buy my new 60″. doing my part to keep the economy going. A wonderful follow up to a tryptophantastic thanksgiving. i got lots of little things free (after rebate) and some much needed junk. All around a great holiday. after this home and then nap.
An unbelievable amount of beurocracy went into this purchase. Wow. The first problem was cashier i got was still in training. They couldn’t delete the warranty or an extra hdmi cable from my bill. I eventually had to return my imaginary cable and then go back to the cashier to get my cash. Including the checkout line, the whole process took nearly two hours.
Feeling much better after my nap. Watching Sorsorer’s Stone on the new TV. Fits and looks perfect in my living room. Reflection was my primary concern, but that proved to be nothing at all to worry about.
I am working in the mixing and mastering studio of one of my favorite shows on television: HBO’s Treme. The problem is that they are working on next week’s episode. It is crunch time and they are working under deadline. The hard part is that I am expected to work while a new unaired episode of my favorite new show is on a beautiful big screen right in front of my workstation. Not easy.
