AwesomeCon 2016

AwesomeCon finally arrived last weekend and sure enough I went this year. Now unlike in the past when I have gone for multiple days, I only attended on Sunday but I was not alone. This year I took two friends with me and all three of us dressed up in costume. I believe it was their first ComicCon ever and the fact they dressed up made it even more enjoyable and entertaining.

My Movie Collection

Anyone who has ever stepped inside my workshop or home would instantly notice that I have two collections. The first being my Lego minifigure collection and some of the awesome models that go along with them and the second being my movie collection. Now I have talked about my Lego collection quite often but I have not really spoken of my movie collection. Now from time to time I will compose a blog posting about a movie, typically amazing movies that I am dying to own and watch again and again. Continue reading

SDCC ’14

San Diego Comic – Con 2014 is over and there was so much awesome swag that has been coming up on eBay from it. I wish I could have gone this year but hopefully next year I can head out there and really enjoy myself. SourceFed has done a wonderful job this year showing off all of the awesome collectables and gear. The costumes where also really amazing this year. Halo and Legend of Zelda had some awesome trailers released.

A Nerds Dream Weekend

This weekend is one any Nerd would enjoy, not only did Free Comic Book Day fall on this weekend but the following day was May 4th. For those of you who may not know May 4th is also known as May the Fourth Be with You in reference to Star Wars. There is also Revenge of the Fifth with conveniently and ironically lands on Monday. Also on May 4th, a very special episode of the Simpsons aired where they were all Legos. This weekend was a dream for me because I really let myself go and Geeked out all weekend.

My collection.

One of my New Years resolutions for this year was to start collection something. I have been playing World of Warcraft for a long time and put a lot of energy and money into the game for achievements. Along with those achievements are rare and unique mounts and titles that have taken a long time to acquire and/or a lot of money to unlock. The same goes with the Simpsons Tapped Out game. I have spent a lot more money thank I care to admit on these two games but after looking back I would say I have spent over $3000 on just those two games. Yes I know a waste of money and I will agree. The biggest problem with these two collections is that it is all virtual, I can not sell them later in life and if the game no longer supported one day then good bye.

AwesomeCon 2014

20140420-220852.jpg
This weekend AwesomeCon was held in DC and since I have never had the chance or availability to attend any Con except via online such as BlizzCon or ComicCon in LA. I was hoping to find people to go with since I had never been to one before and I was honestly a little nervous. This was the second year of this con and already it had a lot of different panels to choose from and even a nerdy speed dating which I thought was interesting. Since my schedule was already packed I really had to pick and choose what I saw and when.

An Unexpected Long Weekend

And DC Metro area was struck with yet another snow storm. This one dumped a solid 6 inches on Monday meaning everything was closed and I had an extra day to relax and regroup from a very stressful week at work. Someone please tell the CIA to stop messing with their weather control machine… I am getting sick of these one day 60 degree weather and next is snowing…

Everything is Awesome… with the Lego Movie

The-LEGO-Movie-2014-Poster
Awesome Awesome Awesome! That is the best way to describe this movie. Not to give to much away but it has a wonderful script that has a real story that every person who has ever created anything with Legos will understand. The message is simple, have fun! Those of us who follow the directions vs. those of us who create amazing things from our imagination; the battle is constant and Lego knows its audience to show that battle. I expected a good movie more so targeted to children but I was wrong and I came out holding back tears because it is for master builders of all ages.

Na Na Na Na Na Na Batkid

For a day this week San Francisco transformed in to the legendary Gotham City. Saving the day while raising the spirits of a major U.S. city was pint-sized Miles Scott, 5. Miles is in remission from leukemia, and, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, managed to turn his obsession with comic book heroes into the real thing. Well, almost. There was no way Penguin and Riddler were going to get away with anything on Friday. The city was touched by Batkid and by taking down the Penguin and Riddler he brought the power of what one young kid can do to touch our hearts.
