Fan Expo 2015

  It’s that time of year again, and if you blink… it’s over. And that’s what I realized this morning, just like that Fan Expo is done for another year. Sigh.¬†Still, it was a really enjoyable year as Sue, Lindsay and I dove into geekdom, and chatted with a number of great people, saw some…

Around The House – Sue’s V Collection

  I chose V to be the focus of my first Around The House segment, because it’s been such a huge part of my heart for so long, and because I don’t really have very much stuff from it, considering how long I’ve loved it.¬† There’s kind of a gaping lack of treasures to be…

Battlestar Galactica… Has It Been 35 Years Already?

There are those who believe…that life here began out there, far across the Universe…with tribes of humans…who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians…or the Toltecs…or the Mayans…that they may have been the architects of the Great Pyramids…or the lost civilizations of Lemuria…or Atlantis.

Canadian ToyCon – Burlington, Ontario

  Nostalgia is a powerful thing. It can evoke memories you thought were long forgotten when something triggers it, like an object you’ve not seen since your childhood.
