Best moment of An Idiot Abroad so far: Karl listening to Depeche Mode at Chichen Itza.

I just started watching An Idiot Abroad. I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time.

All this San Diego Comic Con news is making me feel nostalgic about my most cherished comic/geek memory.
At NY Comic Con 2007, I got to see a panel consisting of Stan Lee and other Marvel people from the 1960s. I believe it was the team that created Spider Man and the X-Men. Stan did a little bit of trash-talking about DC Comics (all in good fun) and told many stories about what it was like to be a part of that special team of artists and writers.
Here’s the only bad part. The room was half-full. There wasn’t a line to get in and I had no trouble getting a seat. I still don’t understand how that room wasn’t packed. And I was one of the only younger people in there (I was 29 at the time, if that paints the picture more clearly). My conclusion was that when push comes to shove, most people are primarily interested in what’s current. What’s weird is that when Stan Lee was signing autographs on the show floor, everyone was mobbing him. Is it just me, or is it not more interesting to hear his story rather than having his name scribbled on a piece of paper? I mean, meeting him would be awesome, but hearing him talk for almost an hour about how he came up with Xavier, Magneto, Wolverine, and Storm was way cooler. I just wish I had gotten a picture of him when he was imitating Thor. But he still looks pretty excited in this one.
I’m glad I got to see a piece of history that day. Hopefully, there are some people in San Diego having great, non-fleeting experiences like this right now.

Blurry but peaceful. Secretly hoping that a kaiju and jaeger will appear.

I have one extra redemption code for the Destiny beta on PS4. Send me an ask and it’s yours. Please note that it’s for PS4, not any of the other consoles.

This feels tiny and meaningless with all the heaviness from around the world this week, but hopefully it can make one person happy somewhere.

Playing the Destiny beta right now and it’s absolutely amazing.

My first alarm for tomorrow morning is set to the second piano piece that Samantha wrote in Her. I am going to wake up really happy or really depressed.
