Reliving 1985 For A Great Cause

If you’ve lived here in San Antonio long enough, then you’ll well remember the great snowstorm of 1985. More than a foot of snow, the likes of which we’ve not seen since (though 1987 did produce enough of it that I can remember going back to Keystone and throwing snowballs at my classmates the next day).

Forecasters are suggesting that we might see snow again this weekend. It goes without saying – so of course I’m saying it anyway – that I’m a little skeptical. But it’ll still be a good weekend for a Snowball Run. Continue reading

The Hope of Art

The world is full of possibilities.

If your experience with that truth is anything like mine, then it’s a lesson we all learn. And forget. And relearn. But I have to believe it’s worth the constant trying.

Off to Alamo City Comic Con

In a little while I’ll be heading to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center for Alamo City Comic Con.

It’ll be a kind of working mini-vacation – I’ll be representing with the cast and crew of Now Hiring (an indie superhero comedy made here in S.A. – I still owe you the story of how I got involved with it, but it’s a pretty good story…), but I’m also hoping to meet some of the genre luminaries I’ve admired for so many years (it’s a cool lineup). I’ll get to check out some awesome art and merchandise. And I get to spend the weekend just being a nerd.

Or, if you prefer, me.

I may post daily wrap-ups, depending on how I’m feeling at the end of each day. But if you’re not already, you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram for more immediate updates.

If you happen to be at the con, please find me and say hello. I’d love to meet and catch up with you all.

So, with that… “excelsior?”… “allons-y?”… anyway, hope to see you soon!
