It’s widely known that the Ahch-To scenes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker were filmed on Skellig Michael, a small uninhabited island in southwest Ireland off the coast of the Iveragh Peninsula. (Fun fact: Roughly a dozen miles east-southeast of Skellig Michael is an island named “Scariff“. […]Read More Does this make me a Jedi?
I spent most of Saturday plowing through the entire season of Digimon Tamers looking for sound clips that would be appropriate for our performance at Katsucon. I think I’ve got everything I need. I’d better…since I recorded about 40 minutes of sound bytes to make a 2 minute skit. I’m going to edit them together tonight […]Read More Foxes, Pain, and Dizziness: Why I Shouldn’t Leave the House
I went to another cousins’ dinner tonight at Elly’s. Tonight’s adventure was split pea soup. Ugh. I hate peas. Oh well, it actually wasn’t too bad. Better than fish. Pretty busy at work this week with the new version of the site in progress. I’m being quite productive. Wheee! Of course, the more I look […]Read More Imagine Whirled Peas
I picked up Arjuna volume 2 last night and can confirm that Lizz, Matt, and I are all in it…and BOY are we! The interview isn’t a continuous shot. It’s cut and has the questions on still frames between Kawamori’s answers. Kawamori is sitting in his chair taking up most of the frame. No Bandai […]Read More More on Arjuna vol. 2
So at Anime Expo, Lizz had arranged an interview with Shoji Kawamori. I was dressed as Renamon that day. While we waited, I wandered over to see Ramen & Rice (who happened to be dressed as other Digimon Tamers characters). After a couple photos with me, they went back to playing and I wandered back […]Read More Another few minutes of fame wasted…
Lizz and I decided to put our pair of Escaflowne costumes on hold until 2004. (Wow…2004 seems so far away!) We’ve already got other plans for 2003 and there’s no way we’d be able to get them done for 2003 cons and still have them look good…since neither of us really know how to sew […]Read More Esca-later
That new costume I was talking about a few days ago (see Nov 3)? Fox McCloud from Starfox Adventures. I’ve given it some thought and decided to move it up my list of possibilities. The hardest part would be the head, but I’m confident that I can do a more accurate job with that head […]Read More Yes, another fox. I must be sick in the head.
Last night I went out to Derek, Jami, and Troy’s in Worcester for a Day of the Dead party. Most people wore costumes, but I didn’t since my back was still killing me. (Yeah, for once I actually wasn’t in the mood to wear a costume! Go figure!) It was feeling better by the time […]Read More Weekend summary

Noon Lunch meeting with the department and Information Services. 1:00pm Toured the […]Read More My own Twenty-Four…and then some.
I *finally* got this off my camera. Had a problem with the floppy disk. …but I thought it was worth sharing. I’ll explain the Pepsi tree at a later date. It’s not my tree (and not Darcy’s either) but there’s a whole story to go along with it.Read More Another photo…
