I'm leavin' on a jet plane: Nightmare Nights Dallas, Day Zero · 4:57am Oct 27th, 2017

To sum up the day in a single word, I would say smooth. The airport check in was no problem at all, and the TSA line moved along unlike previous experiences (I’m looking at you, Boston). After I told the stone-faced gentleman I had an artificial hip, he summoned another to run the scanner booth which was no big deal, although it did remind me of the disintegration booth in that Star Trek TOS episode.

Have no time to look around, just run around: Nightmare Nights Dallas, Day Three · 3:39am Oct 30th, 2017

Sunday

6:45
Alarm. Too many snooze cycles before I am finally up. Some terrible room coffee, a shower, and off to breakfast.

8:50 or so
Real coffee and breakfast. Then back to the room, after I take an apple for an afternoon snack.

There's so much stuff I will own: Nightmare Nights Dallas, Day Two · 4:58am Oct 29th, 2017

Saturday is always, or so it’s seemed to me, the biggest day of any convention. Everybody’s there, settled in, ready for the featured events. So it was with me today.

Nightmare Night. Dark Matter Day · 8:54pm Oct 27th, 2017

Is anyone at Nightmare Nights Dallas? I will be joining Needling Haystacks MLP Physics panel at 4pm on Saturday 28 October (by Skype link - while I would love to take a trip to Texas, it’s not very practical right now). Come along to hear a group of physicists discuss, and possibly argue, about the sonic rainboom, multiple timelines, and how things like orbital mechanics and genetics might work in Equestria.

They were doing it in Texas · 2:45am Oct 24th, 2017

Whenever EQD posts conventions, I like to pop them into the calendar and set an alert for six weeks or a month prior to the date. Not that I plan to do everything or go everywhere, but if the opportunity arose, I would like to have enough time. So far, Trotcon and BronyCon are the only pony events I've attended. Ciderfest and EFNW are still on my list. At one point, BUCK was a possibility, if I renewed my passport and could score a cheap flight, but it disappeared before I could make it

I will be at Harmony Con next weekend · 12:58am Feb 3rd, 2019

I'm in an important staff position, so I have to be on call, but if any of y'all want to meet me there, drop me a message and I'll try to find time between events.

If you live in the DFW area, you should drop me a message either way, as I run a fan club in that area.

I'll try to post the final part of DiN chapter 7 and the first part of the followup to What's Your Problem? before then...

Nightmare Nights Dallas · 5:51pm Oct 26th, 2017

So, seeing as I'm currently living in Dallas for a contract job, and Nightmare Nights Dallas is only about 45 minutes away from here, and less than 15 from the job site, I will be in attendance. This is, surprisingly, the first time I've ever been to a convention on a non-professional basis, so it's all going to be new for me.

A Tempest Tossed Back in the Frying Pan! · 5:33am Dec 30th, 2018

I heard from one of my readers that they really liked my story, but that the ending felt like an insult to the readers. Having gone back over it and looking at it from their perspective, I can see how that could be interpreted as such. I did not intend to insult my readers, but it seems the method I used to conclude the story is something that is generally considered, um, frustrating.

*Sigh*

Went to Nightmare Nights Dallas this past weekend. This was the last year for the convention. :fluttercry:

Why have all the cons down south shut down? Fiesta Equestria, Derpycon South, and now Nightmare Nights?! Are there more that I don't know about?!

WWWHHHYYY???!!! :raritycry:

And on that note, I'm going to try and attend Bronycon next year. Don't know if I'll make it, but I'll try. :unsuresweetie:

HarmonyCon 2020 · 9:53pm Sep 1st, 2019

Just so y'all know, I'm currently slated to give panels at HarmonyCon 2020, and I think y'all should look into going.

Here is the website.
Here is the Discord.

They are doing the first in a series of regular streams right now, that's why I was thinking about it.

Been havin' bad luck all of my days: Nightmare Nights Dallas, Day One · 3:48am Oct 28th, 2017

The convention’s events did not start in earnest until midday, so I spent time going through the schedule and making calendar entries for panels I wished to attend. Then I got a text message.

From one of our credit card companies.

From their fraud department.

Alien Review · 10:09pm Jun 3rd, 2017

Okay, in honor of Alien Covenant's release, I'm going to review the first four Alien movies. The ones that started this franchise... no I'm not reviewing Prometheus. I've heard the reviews, I've seen clips, if you like it fine, if you don't like it fine, it just didn't interest me. You take out the Xenomorphs in a story that's part of the Alien franchise, I don't see a point in me seeing it.

Special Aincrad Release! · 10:53pm Oct 26th, 2019

Okay. I just spent the day at Wings Over Dallas, a huge airshow. I was actually volunteering with the National Museum of the Pacific War, in uniform with them. And this year, they had Tora Tora Tora "reenact" the bombing of Pearl Harbor, video below. It's humbling, but awesome.

So yeah, I'm excited, I'm in a good mood, I might have just released a new Episode (Into the Red) on "accident."
